NewLSFB497: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Romans 12-14

I’m going to make today’s comments very short. I just found out that I have become lactose intolerant today. How’d I find out? Well the last time I had to take some time off about a month ago, I thought I had the flu because I had a lot of pain in my stomach. But…

NewLSFB496: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Romans 9-11

Chapter 9 has some language in it that causes difficulty for some people. Did it get your attention? Here it is again. Paul was quoting Malachi 1:2-3. He said, “As the Scriptures say, ‘I loved Jacob, but I hated Esau.’” What? God hated Esau? What’s up with that? Well, as it turns out, this type…

NewLSFB495: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Isaiah 45-47

So who is this Cyrus we read about in chapter 45? You might be surprised to learn that he was a Mede, not a Jew. Yet God called him to make Israel free. Isn’t it interesting that God does not restrict His use of people to only the children of Israel? As He said so…

NewLSFB494: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Romans 7 and 8

Do you like baseball? I love baseball. Probably because my grandpa loved it. I remember sitting on my grandpa’s lap as he sat in his recliner, watching the Dodgers shortly after they moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles. Of course, I was too young to know that they were new to LA, and to me…

NewLSFB493: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Isaiah 43 and 44

In chapter 44, verses 9 through 20 we saw how silly it is for men to create a god out of a block of wood. I think most listening would agree. One of the things the fool in the passage does is to pray to the idol he created, “You are my god, save me!”…

NewLSFB491: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Isaiah 41 and 42

In Matthew 12:17 we’re told that Isaiah 42 is about the Messiah. After reading the chapter I’m sure you’re not surprised. As you probably know, the Old Testament is replete with Messianic prophecies. The Jews for Jesus website lists 365 of them, and of those 365 prophecies, 132 are in the book of Isaiah. The…

NewLSFB490: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Romans 3 and 4

Do you have a favorite place? Someplace on the planet that you think about when you wish you could just get away from it all? Someplace where you are both relaxed and excited at the same time? For me, that place is a little campsite in the Yosemite wilderness. It’s a place nestled in where…

NewLSFB489: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Isaiah 38 through 40

I am so happy that God saw fit to include the contents of chapter 38 in the Bible. Here is this good king Hezekiah, whom God had given a victory over the proud and arrogant king Sennacherib. He’s in the prime of a well lived life, and he falls deathly sick. And the Lord sent…
