Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 15: The Meaning of the Cross in our Daily Lives


Every Christian is familiar to some extent with the historical events surrounding the crucifixion of Christ 2000 years ago. In addition, I believe that most of us know that the work Christ did on the cross forms the basis of our salvation today. But my concern is that we not just know these things in an intellectual way, but rather that we experience the reality of what Christ provided for us in our daily walk.


• Some things that happened at the Cross
o Adam’s race was put to death (crucified) in Christ (Gal 2:20, Gal. 6:14, Rom. 6:6)
o The price of blood was paid for our cleansing from sin (Heb. 9:16-28, I John 1:7)
o The law was done away with (Colossians 2:14)
o Satan was defeated (Colossians 2:15)
o The way into the presence of God was opened (Heb. 6:19-20)
o The way was opened for Jesus to give the Holy Spirit (John 7:39)
• Our place is to believe God in what He says was accomplished at Calvary
o God does not accept anything we are according to the natural
o Forgiveness of sin is by repentance and believing in Christ’s atonement
o We now live under a new law, the law of life (Rom. 8:1-4)
o Our power over the enemy is as we resist Him in union with Christ (James 4:7)
o God is pleased as we draw near in full assurance (Heb. 4:16, James 4:8)
o Full fellowship with God is experienced through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit
• Defeat comes when we
o Depend on anything natural (personality, self-effort)
o We depend on what we have done instead of what God does in us (Phil. 2:12,13)
o Resort back to keeping the outward commandments for acceptance before God
o Listen to the enemy and his accusations
o Shrink back from God because we do not feel worthy
o When we entertain reservations in yielding ourselves to the Holy Spirit


In summary, we enter into the finished work of Christ in experience by believing in Christ and union with Him by the Spirit.


“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18, NKJV)  “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” (1 Corinthians 2:2, NKJV)
