SORT BY Relevancy
This episode will hopefully serve as an encouragement to believers, both in being steadfast in what they believe and in knowing what the message really is that the world needs to hear. The main text was Romans 3:20-26, which explains how Jesus Christ was sent as our sacrifice to justify or make righteous all those who put their faith in Him, in light of the truth that none of us can "get it right" or make atonement for our own sins! This is the message.
I think you will also be encouraged by clips of people helping us to know God can use each and everyone of us, and music that will help you both focus on God's love and celebrate the victorious end we are promised, when we will reign victorious with Christ in the presence of God Almighty!!
The J Man
* Near the very end of the program, I ran into a small technical difficulty, but the program keeps running. Hang in there, because if you do, you will hear me make a joyful noise unto the Lord, including a verse of my always musically unique rendition of "Because He Lives."
in The Bible
For they, being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own [righteousness], have not submitted to the righteousness of God.
For Christ is [the] end of law for righteousness to every one that believes.
For Moses lays down in writing the righteousness which is of the law, The man who has practised those things shall live by them.
But the righteousness of faith speaks thus: Do not say in thine heart, Who shall ascend to the heavens? that is, to bring Christ down;
or, Who shall descend into the abyss? that is, to bring up Christ from among [the] dead
But what says it? The word is near thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach
that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from among [the] dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with [the] heart is believed to righteousness; and with [the] mouth confession made to salvation
"Don't Talk About It Be About It"
This week Erica discusses the big difference between being a Christian versus just calling yourself one. So many people claim to be followers of the Lord when in actuality they are quite the opposite.
It is imperative as Christians that our actions speak louder than words. We must demonstrate the love and life of Christ not just dicatate it.
Erica reads from her blog, My Message and gives reference to key scriptures that help us live more like Christ.

Salvation can be a very perplexing subject for Christians, especially with so many denominations saying so many different things about it. Please listen to Mark Joneschiet, The Running Pastor, as he shares from I Thessalonians, Chapter 5 about this important Biblical topic.
God Is Greater Than Your Circumstances
This week host Erica DiCarlo discusses the importance of faith. These days are dark, but none the less we can be sure that God shines brightly upon our lives. We are never beyond God's loving hand and when we feel far from Him, it is not because He has left. It is because WE HAVE.
Step out of fear and into faith in this week's powerful episode featuring Erica's blog post The Mirage and more!
On Christian television, radio and other media, I am constantly hearing the message- something like, "Jesus is coming. Get ready!" This is in fact a Biblical message, and the urgency they felt 2,000 years ago when sharing this same "get ready" message is not much different from what we feel today! And yes, He is coming back! What a glorious day!. But the greater need for the Christian message, most pointedly, the message of salvation through Jesus Christ, is a message for this very day; it is one that must be declared now! The salvation of Jesus Christ brings hope, light and life into people's lives right where they are, in their despair and in their flawed and myopic self-diagnosis and ineffective self-medication.
Above all of this, the book of Hebrews says, basically: A person dies once, and then faces judgment. The odds have it that we, and people we know and love, will go before Jesus comes. Paul said to be absent from thje body is to be present with the Lord. Other Scripture implies that the dead wait for the return of the Lord, who will raise them up to their eternal reward. Whatever the mystery of this, it is only in our mortal lifetime that we have the opportunity to accept Christ's salvatoin, and to share Christ's salvation!!! This is urgent!!!
Finally, those not of the faith and those who contend against the faith, will take people away from the truth. They ask people to consider other "truth," to "imagine" realities different from what the Bible says. And whether intentionally or not, people often imagine themselves straight to Hell. Jesus said the way that leads to life is narrow, and few find it. Helping people find that path, getting them out of the world's philosophical and ideological traps, so they don't miss Heaven, is urgent!
"THE ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE"
A bad attitude is like a flat tire....you go nowhere until you change it. Unfortunately, in these dark days, many have turned their focus from love to lack and their gratitute into grumbling.
Join host, Erica DiCarlo as she discusses what it means to truly trust God while in trial and how important it is to have the proper perspective while walking out your circumstances.
Bitterness is poisonous, complaining gets you nowhere. REMEMBER we are Too blessed to be stressed
