Greetings and welcome! This is our daily devotional for November 8th, 2023. Today we continue our study in the Book of Acts in chapter 16 with Paul and Silas exercising their rights as Roman citizens and also the principle of obeying God, rather than men. Thanks for joining us!
We answer the question asked by a growing number of Christians in the face of stolen elections and widespread corruption: Why Bother Voting?
2 Thessalonians 3:11-13, Galatians 6:9, Romans 2:6-11
It's a sad thing when the actions of unbelievers put the actions of professing followers of God to shame. That's the case in Jonah 1:8-13. In this sermon, Pastor Jesse walks us through the consequences Jonah and his pagan shipmates experience because of his rebellious disobedience... and Jonah's lack of repentance even in the midst of those consequences. You'll see the stark contrast in how the pagan sailors respond to Yahweh and in how Jonah the rebel prophet responds, and you'll be reminded of the dangers of going against God - and of your need to worship and submit to Him.
Is the book of Jonah still relevant to people in the 21st century? The answer is a resounding yes! In this sermon, Pastor Jesse introduces the book of Jonah, walking us through the setting, the themes, and the first 2 verses. You'll see how an ancient book about a disobedient prophet who gets swallowed by a giant fish can lead us to grow in our love for and obedience to God today.

There are different reasons one can be blind (accident, certain diseases, birth defect), we can be blinded by God both physically and spiritually but Satan also can can be a agent of blindness (2 Cor. 4:4). That was one of the curses according to De. 28:28-29, levied for disobedience.
1 Samuel 15:1-10 " Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD.
2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.
3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
4 ¶ And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.
5 And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.
6 ¶ And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.
7 And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt.
8 And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.
9 But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly."
The God of the Bible is very skillful in asking questions. He does not ask to learn something from us but he asks in order for us to learn. His questions reveal our heart and they can spur us to a proper response to him. This podcast looks at several questions God asked people beginning in Eden with Adam.
