Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P700 (01-14-22)
Walking in Our Dependency of Love – Jesus is Love
Matthew called in regards to a question he had about Love in the bible study booklet “A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ.”
Bob mentions that once we understand the love of God for us, then we begin to have that same love for others. It’s a process though and a renewing of our mind by Him doing it in and through us.
Understanding the Love of God
- It’s the love of God,
- that results in the dependency upon God,
- that then results in the obedience to God.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
John the second caller called from Atlanta, Georgia. He wanted to know about finances and job hunting.
Bob summed up the answer matter-of-factly, go interview for a job. And, sometimes you may have to interview with a hundred different places before you get one. Also, don’t follow the religious crowd and the “name it and claim it” that believes if you do this or do that for God that He will do something financially for you. They are of a perverted mind, thinking that godliness is a means to financial gain.
1 Timothy 6:5
and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
Euwin was the third caller calling from Vancouver British Columbia. He had a question in regards to the Law and the sacrificial system.
Bob mentioned that under the old testament and the sacrificial system is where they did sacrifices. Now under the new covenant, Jesus fulfilled the old and ushered in the new.
The fourth caller Fran called from Victoria, Texas. She had a question about the Lord’s prayer.
Bob explains that Jesus taught under the old covenant. For example, if you do not forgive others, God will not forgive you. It’s important to understand that this was under the old. Now we are to forgive as the Lord has forgiven us.
32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Jesus went to the cross, taking on the sins of the entire world upon himself, forgiving everyone of their sins. Now, God is pointing out to us to forgive others as Jesus has forgiven you.
Ernest called from Strasbourg, Pennsylvania. He had a question about John 8:11 and the “sin no more” statement.
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
It means leave the lifestyle of what the lady was doing. The lifestyle the lady was leading was not good for the lady. Jesus told the lady out of love, not condemnation.
