The Promise of God's Pledge

January 28, 2018 • Dr. Don Wilton

When we hear the word “pledge,” perhaps we think of the pledge of allegiance to the American flag. Or maybe a Scout pledge from childhood comes to mind. But did you know that Jehovah God also made a pledge, and he made it to us as believers? Today Dr. Don Wilton continues his message series Shatterproof and teaches about a God who desires a personal relationship which each of us and guarantees eternal life with Him to each person who confesses Jesus as Lord. This hope is an anchor for our lives because God long ago made a pledge, not only to Abraham but to believers today. Because of God’s pledge those who believe have hope and can all stand firm on every promise of God.

The Promise of the Only Way it Can Happen

February 18, 2018 • Dr. Don Wilton

Jesus had just announced to His disciples that He was going away. The disciples were perplexed and did not know what they would do without Him. Jesus promised them the only way they could continue living. Often there are times in our lives when we feel just as the disciples that Jesus has gone away from us and we do not know how to make it on our own. We lose loved ones who are so important in our families and in our lives and we do not know how we can cope without them. The truth is we cannot. Jesus promised His disciples that he would send a “Helper,” the Holy Spirit that would be with us in these situations. Without the Holy Spirit, we are helpless and hopeless. The Holy Spirit also convicts us of our sin and shows us how to live right. What a blessing! Despite all the struggles in this life, we do not have to handle them on our own. We have the gift of the Holy Spirit if we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior. That is the first step- give our hearts to Jesus. Then we will be obedient and pray that others will do the same. Take God at His Word! Claim His promise of the only way live can be abundant. Enjoy the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. Then pray that others will do the same.

What challenges are you currently facing? Perhaps you're in bondage to addiction; feel crushed by financial or health issues; or you're wounded by divorce, job loss, or abuse. When life events overwhelm, it is hard to believe things will ever improve. But circumstances change and the challenges you face don't last forever. As the Israelites prepared to enter the Promised Land, God gave Joshua instructions and a reminder that the enemy had already been defeated and Joshua didn't have to face the uncertainties that lay ahead alone. Perhaps you yearn to experience change in your life and no longer feel you can handle things in your own strength. You don't have to. Start by confessing your sin and inadequacy to God and asking for help. He is ready and waiting to infuse your life with love and forgiveness and give you the promise of a new day, a new life in Christ.
