What’s in a Name? In THIS Case, EVERYTHING!!!

While you are enjoying this PODCAST, I have the privilege of speaking to the greatest group of High School students you’d ever want to meet—the heaven-sent and happy campers at Hartland Christian Camp.

Be encouraged. There is hope. Hope for anyone and everyone who has ever appeared to be beyond redemption.

You are about to see a snapshot of Jesus that you will hopefully never, ever forget.

The Man Who Failed, BUT was Not a Failure (and Neither are You!)

 

His name was John Mark. A man of whom the world was not worthy.

But as you are about to hear in this PODCAST, he was a man in whom the Apostle Paul saw no worth.

None.

Zero.

Nada.

But here’s the thing: He may have had no worth to Paul, but John Mark had infinite worth to God.

Paul would not use him, but God certainly did.

Spectacularly.

Ever feel as though you have little to no worth? Guess again.

Redeemed! How I Love to Proclaim It.

It is one of the most beautiful words to appear anywhere in the Bible.

So beautiful, as you will hear in this PODCAST, that the biblical writers invoke this word one hundred one times.

Peter will employ it in 1 Peter 1:18 when he writes these 3 amazing words:

“You were redeemed.”

That is a declarative sentence, causing us to ask, What’s the picture??? The biblical picture of redemption.

I’ll give you a hint: It all has to do with one of the so-called Minor Prophets. Minor in terms of his book’s length; MAJOR in terms of its message.

Mending a Mother’s Broken Heart

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, last week as I was rushing at the end to complete on time our discussion of Peter’s release from prison—an effort at which I failed miserably, BTW—we mentioned-in-passing two noteworthy individuals, each of whom deserve far more than passing-mention.

Mary, a generous homeowner and gracious hostess who opened her home for going on-fourteen years by the time of this story to the earliest, first generation followers of Jesus, our ancestors in the faith.

Mary also happened to be the aunt to our old friend Barnabas, and a very close and personal friend of our even older friend, Peter.

And then there is Mary’s son and Barnabas’ cousin (Colossians 4:10)—as well as Peter’s protege—John Mark.

With glistening credentials such as these, they both do indeed deserve our special attention. Especially given the fact that immediately upon his miraculous release from prison, instinctively Peter made his very first stop to announce his release at Mary’s home.

Even more especially given that this is Mother’s Day weekend.

For this is in every sense of the word this is a Mother’s tale.

Specifically, how God in His matchless, infinite, and eternal grace melted and mended a mother’s broken heart.

The FIRST of Some Pretty Amazing Firsts

If this doesn’t send shivers up your spine, I don’t know what will.

In this PODCAST, you are about to hear an absolutely amazing story about a most-remarkable individual, whom we barely met last week—Simon the Samaritan Sorcerer.

A man, BTW, whose eternal destiny—when all is said and done—remains a question mark, shrouded in mystery.

For of Simon we read,

“Then Simon himself believed and was baptized” (Acts 8:13).

So far, so good!

But then we read a mere 8 short verses later,

“But Peter replied… ‘Your heart is not right with God.’”

Uh oh.

Simon the Samaritan Sorcerer—A living, breathing contradiction—as we might expect from someone trafficking on dark side.

There is so much to this story that it is hard to know where to begin. So we will start with this…
