Episode 391

Angus Buchan • From the television series "Grassroots with Angus Buchan"

Reading from Galatians 5:1-6, Angus reminds us that Christ has made us free! When our focus is on Jesus we have liberty in spite of all worldly cares and events around us. When we are saved we walk in faith. We need not be a slave to the law. Faith in God is going to save you, nothing else. Our faith in Jesus Christ gets us to Heaven. You will never earn your way to Heaven. Our works do not get us to Heaven. We have been saved by grace and when you fall in love with Jesus, you don’t want to sin and offend God. If we love God, our actions must not deny Him. Freedom comes from faith in Jesus!

Keep walking

Episode 400 • Angus Buchan

Sitting on top of a hill at Shalom farm in Greytown, South Africa and reminiscing about the Mighty Men Events which took place there, Angus tells us that when we have a mountain to climb in our lives and it seems impossible, we must put our faith in the Lord and just keep walking. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and He will do the rest. The Christian walk is not a once-off thing, it’s a lifestyle. Remember that Jesus is right beside you as you walk through all the challenges in your life.

Free at last

Episode 399 • Angus Buchan

In today’s message, Angus tells us about a visit to a prison where he was invited to preach the Gospel to the prisoners. He witnessed God’s love through the convicted felons, their amazing singing, and unashamed love for the Lord. Although they were locked up, they were freer in themselves than many of us living on the outside. Angus reminds us that we are all sinners and many of the Lord’s chosen in the bible, spent time in prison but were free in their spirit. 1John 4:4 tells us that the Lord God who is within us is greater than he which is in the world, that is the devil. We have freedom in Jesus Christ!

The grace of God

Episode 398 • Angus Buchan

In Ephesians 2:8 we are told that we are saved by grace through faith. In this message, Angus reminds us also of the verse in Mark 11:22 which tells us to have faith in God. Not faith in our own ability because we are not made righteous through any act of goodwill or kindness or because we think we are a, ”good” person. We are only made righteous when we acknowledge that we are sinners and invite Jesus into our hearts. It is only by His Grace which is unmerited favor or loving-kindness shown toward us. No-one who has ever lived, apart from Jesus, will make it into heaven except through the saving grace of Almighty God!
