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? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

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.

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 33: Working for God

Today we often hear the statement regarding “our work for God” or similar words. Does God call men to work for Him? The needs we see around us are so many, and we may have a great desire to see those needs met. The laborers seem so few. What is the place of man in meeting the needs? What is our specific place in this labor? How can we know we are laboring in the will of God? These questions are most often asked by young people as they become aware of the bigger world and the great needs among mankind. There are many mission societies that recognize the great zeal in youth and seek to give them an opportunity in their area of interest. Are their scriptural guidelines pertaining to the work done for the purpose of God? How can we know that we are laboring properly?
