ENCOURAGING WORDS FROM THE WORD
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program


Today’s Encouraging Word: “The Many Kinds of Corn

Did you know that there are many varieties, and even colors, of corn? The church of God is much the same way – people of different colors, abilities, and ages. But we are all called to do something to grow the Kingdom of God – both inside and outside the walls of the Church. What are you doing today to save one more for Jesus? Tune in tomorrow for more on this!

What kind of energy are these cities and companies actually using?

Why is a backup generating plant needed? Who pays for the backup plant when it is not in use? Listen closely! This answer will NOT make you happy!

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How many times has Doug Hershey traveled to Israel with his tour company, Ezra Adventures?

What can we learn about Israel’s history from Doug’s book, “Israel Rising”?

Mark Twain wrote about the land of Israel. Listen as Doug discusses this…

Are the deserts in Israel expanding, like the Bible prophesied?

Who was the photographer for Doug’s book?

Does “Israel Rising” include a comparison of Israel now vs. 2,000 years ago?



CROWN MINISTRIES DEVOTION
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries is entitled: “Preconditioned Response” and is taken from Nehemiah 6:11 (NIV) “Should a man like me run away? Or should someone like me go into the temple to save his life? I will not go!”

Do you have a preconditioned response to obeying God and following His commands?

Larry Burkett writes: “Those in the business world are sometimes more punctual and reliable in their work than Christians are in serving God.” He calls this “preconditioned response”, similar to the practice commercial airlines use to inform passengers of the necessary steps in case of an emergency.

Further Scripture reading: 2 Kings Chapters 2-4.



JESUS: THE TEACHER
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 1

This summer, Mark will be digging deeper into the words spoken by Jesus. The goal and purpose of these devotions are to give us a better understanding about Jesus and draw us closer to him.

Mark Lanier is back this week with a look at five different devotionals from Jesus.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

First Devotional: “Don’t Get it Backwards” John 13:13-14

Was Jesus just a “good teacher”? Why is it important to listen to the words Jesus spoke? Can you serve others better than you are currently?

Second Devotional: “Don’t Fake Flatter God” Matthew 22:15-18

Guess what? People didn’t like paying taxes back then just like we don’t now! Unfortunately, they didn’t have freedom of speech like we do.

Tune in tomorrow for the rest of the story on King Harod, taxes, and Jesus’s response to the people…

CHILDREN ARE A GIFT
Discussed by Steven Morris
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 1

Psalms 127:3 “Children are a gift from the Lord.”

This week, Champion Forest Baptist Church Student Pastor Steven Morris will be encouraging us, as adults and mentors, to invest in the lives in the generation coming behind us.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

The Lord works in wonderful ways! Listen as Pastor Steven Morris talks with several students who attended Vacation Bible School at Champion Forest Baptist.

Why should we all invest in the lives of students, teens, and even college-age young adults?

Jesus often shocked those who were listening to him. Mark 10:13-16 is no exception. Listen as Pastor Steven reads the Scripture…

Why did the children’s guardians bring them to Jesus?

Why did the disciples try to stop the children from coming?

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
