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 51 The Sovereignty of God


Perhaps no other subject challenges us quite so much is how God can be sovereign and still give man a free choice. The question arises in many ways and the answers do not come easily. Are real answers possible that will help us in our walk with God? Men have struggled with this question for centuries, and in our short time here we would not suggest that we are even going to begin to answer every question. But I do think there are some basic truths that can help us and bring us to a solid foundation of our faith in Christ Jesus our Lord.


• God is much bigger than we commonly think
o He is eternal (no beginning and no end)
o He is all powerful
o He is Omnipresent and Omniscient (knows all things)
o Every Divine Attribute is without limit and in perfect harmony
• Jesus revealed God to us in human form (John 14:9, Col. 1:19, 2:9)
o Jesus was God in the flesh (“I am”)
o He said He was the beginning and the end
o All things are being summed up in Christ (I Cor. 15:28)
• God has sovereignly chosen to work all things in Christ Jesus our Lord
• He has given us a free choice to submit to Christ as Lord and Savior
• Faith rests on the foundation of an infinite God who has chosen to include us in Christ
• Our fulfilment in God (fullness) depends on
o Union by the Holy Spirit (beginning and continuing)
o Faith which rests in God and who He is (Heb. 11:6)
o Obedience to Christ as Lord (members of His body)
• Rest comes as we abide in Christ (who is God and sovereign)
• Struggle comes as we reason, depend on ourselves, and exert our own will
• Sovereignty and free choice are not contradictory but rather complementary
