What is the role of the Christian in this world?
We know that it was the Father's role to choose those who would be saved. Also, we know that it was the Son's role to redeem those chosen. Finally, we know it is the Holy Spirit's role to quicken each elect person's dead soul to life in Christ. So what is MY role?
The role of the believer is two fold -
1) To lead a quiet and peaceable life honoring God.
2) To shine as lights in the midst of a perverse nation.
But how we accomplish these? That's the subject of today's message.

Are you rejoicing in your heart? If not - according to the scriptures you probably are not a thankful person. Scripture equates being thankful with rejoicing in the Lord. If you're not rejoicing, you can't be thankful! But, the good news is that every single one of us, regardless of circumstance, has cause to rejoice and be thankful. Don't believe me? Have a listen!

What should Christians expect in the final days on earth? Does the Bible tell us? The pendulum of ideas swings from scripture presenting no information at all (preterism) to concepts resembling a full on Sci-fi novel. As usual, the truth is somewhere in between.
Part 2 continuing last week's broadcast.

As a followup to last week's radio program which considered the subject of church growth, today we examine the concept of making disciples. While salvation is of God's sovereign grace - literally being born OF God - discipleship is a process in which men take new converts under their wing as a mentor to them. Unfortunately, many do not realize this responsibility.
In this broadcast, Ben encourages mature saints to have a mind to disciple believers less mature in the faith.
