PHIL WICKHAM-THIS IS AMAZING GRACE
"As a believer, you have the mind of Christ. But that doesn’t mean every thought comes from God. You do realize, don’t you, that along with the Shepherd, the butcher too talks to the sheep. The Shepherd’s voice is easy, reassuring, lifting up of the spirit. The butcher speaks harshly, condemning, death serving as the undertone of everything said. Conniving as he is, the enemy makes his voice sound like your own. He wants you to believe as such. Why? Because thoughts and beliefs become feelings, and feelings cause you to act. Pretty soon, your daily living reflects more of his character than your own. But you don’t realize it. The enemy’s lies are that smooth. One of the aspects of abiding in Christ is simply to judge your thoughts. Those that drive, agitate, and cause worry, you stand firm against and discard. Those that encourage, lift-up, and bring you to rest, you embrace and receive. Only the Shepherd’s thoughts belong in your life."
– David Stephens from Belief Changers.
Everyone told Marc Martel from Downhere that he sounded like Freddie Mercury from Queen. When the remaining members of Queen decided to do a new world tour, they held a competition for a new vocalist. Fans encouraged Marc to try out, and he thought, "Well, let's see if the members of Queen think I sound like Freddie!"
He WON the competition. It worked out because a couple of band members in Downhere were having babies this year, so they were already planning to take some time off. He's not leaving the band.
A woman called this morning asking about rights for her children in the public schools. I've posted resources below!
Her daughters want to sing a Christian song in the school talent show, but the administrators said, "NO." She asked about some resources to help.
Students have a lot more rights than they realize in the public school system, but they have to exercise them. We as parents are a little more limited- but our kids are free to live out their faith. That includes having bible clubs on school property, wearing religious clothing & jewelry, they can organize prayer groups on school property and talk about their faith with other students.
Here's pics & video from Klip it for Kids this weekend from Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. Who does Scott look like with a bald head? Yikes! haha.
Last Summer we took 40 listeners on a mission trip to Kalapuwa Sri & Samudra Sri in Sri Lanka. It's an amazing children's home & leadership academy. They care for about 200 orphans.
The Christian Couture Clothing Company is donating a portion of their sales to SOS Radio.
They have some very cool new designs for summer.
I heard Jud Wilhite talking about when Jesus was hanging on the Cross and he said “My God My god why have you forsaken me?” This is one quote from Jesus that puzzles a lot of us! Is Jesus giving up or losing faith?
Jesus was actually quoting a Psalm 22, written by King David hundreds of years before Jesus was ever born.
"When the Scriptures refer to the "heavenly host," we usually think of "choirs of angels."
The word "host" in the Bible meant "army" (Joshua 5:13-14).
It is an important truth: the hosts of Heaven are worshiping armies. Indeed, no one can do warfare who is not first a worshiper of God."
-Francis Frangipane from Elijah List.
