However, there is a way to discuss this topic that both glorifies God's Word, as well as brings relief to those un sure about it. Listen up!

Once Upon A Marriage
Gomer She stands outside in the cool, refreshing rain, allowing it to run in rivulets across her cheeks and down her lips. She is like the lily of the valley that spreads its fragrance across the fields or like the lush, abundant grapes that make men glad. Fertility and fruitfulness, celebration and wild abandon—these are the forces that rise and surge within her. Young, beautiful, and bold, she is always smiling, flashing her big, dark eyes, attracting inevitable attention. God knows how easy it would be to entice her admirers into showering her with gifts of silver and gold. She is determined to squeeze every ounce of sweetness from life. Suddenly she notices a man hurrying toward her. It is not desire that propels him but pain. “Gomer,” he says, “come home!” And so she does, but reluctantly. Her husband Hosea is a good man, but goodness can be tiresome. He talks only of God and of faithfulness to the covenant, dampening her high spirits and making her feel ashamed of

Outcasts - Luke: a Gospel for the Rejected
When a rich, young ruler comes to Jesus in search of a way to inherit eternal life, he seems like the ideal prospect - a very "good" guy on many accounts. But the words of the Great Physician diagnose a severe problem with his heart - good people aren't good enough for a perfect God. "Good" people, like all people, have a missing ingredient in their lives. They need God's grace to make the difference. So Jesus challenges the man to give up the idols which hold his heart behind the veneer of outward goodness, and this man's sad refusal presents a challenge for any of us who would allow something less than what Jesus offers us by His grace take the throne of our hearts. Could you be missing that key ingredient? Listen in to find out.
