Blessed Are the Unoffended

“These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be offended” John 16:1
This week on Sharin Hearts Woman to Woman, Jaine and Sharon discuss the topic of offenses and answer the question: What does it mean to be offended?
What are the many ways that we can get offended and how does that offense relate to God? If I am offended by a friend, family, community member, or situation does that mean I am offended by God?
When we understand the subtle ways we are letting offenses take place, we will have a better understanding of how to recognize them before they take hold of our hearts.
Hard hearts are usually held together by the mortar of offenses but when we refuse to be offended that’s when God is able to mold our hearts into His image.

Establishing a Worldview Part 4

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins discuss ways that we can evaluate our spiritual growth.
When we have the tools we need to examine our hearts through the scriptures, then we will be better equipped to take an active role growing in Christ. Letting the roots of our faith spread deep and wide will keep us grounded in faith to establish a Biblical worldview.
 As you listen, we hope that you will examine your foundation to find where you can be strengthened in Christ. Using God’s word to apply Biblical principles, position, instruction, and conformation of Biblical truth and develop Biblical-based beliefs.

This conversational discipleship program uses the material from A Manual for Biblical Discipling: The Matters, Materials, and Mechanics by Bob and Janie Ratzlaff.

Blessed Are Those Who Trust in the Lord

“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence” Jer. 17:7.
This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the importance of trusting in the Lord. During the uncertain times that we are facing in our world today, it is vital that we, as believers, keep our focus on the Lord our God.
We can’t lose heart when things don’t turn out the way we want or even the way we believe God wants. When we pray, we must remember to pray for God’s will and not our own.
God is still on the throne.
So join in the conversation as we discuss how blessed are those who trust in the Lord.

Blessed Are Those Who Diligently Seek Him

“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart” Psalm 119:1-2.

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the blessings that encompass our life as we grow in Christ.

The world can keep us distracted with the struggles it brings and it can become difficult to separate ourselves and pull apart from it, but the Lord gives us great and many promises that we can trust in.

So, join in the conversation as we find how blessed are those who diligently seek Him.

 

Know WHO You Believe

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green digs into Know Who You Believe by Paul Little.

 

 

 

Do you question whether God knows or cares about you in your everyday life? Would you like to be connected with God? Do you feel you need to know a little more about God before connecting with Him?

If so, come be a part and join author Paul Little as he helps you to closely examine the central truths about God and enable you to know with confidence in whom you believe!

This 3rd volume was published after the death of Paul Little by his wife Marie Little from a cache of Paul’s files, tapes, and a previous book entitled The Answer to Life. Marie has used Paul’s voice on every page…the thoughts and theology are his. Marie has added some updated terms and references, but whenever she does, she has set them off from the main text.

I so appreciate the work she has done. To me, it is such a blessing that Paul’s wonderful insights were not lost due to his untimely death.

It is not enough to know about God’s Word, ways, and attributes. It is not enough to preach about these, proclaim the Good News, or promote Bible study. What the deciding factor is of whether or not we are in-dwelt by the Spirit of God and on the road to eternal life is that we know God.

Blessed Are the Pure in Heart

“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God” Matthew 5:8

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins discuss the matters of the heart.

It’s really important for us as Christians today, to be salt and light to those around us. Especially with all the struggles that we are seeing in our nation and around the world.

Unfortunately, with are finding it difficult to be a beacon of hope to others. So, we hope to encourage you with the scriptures.

Join in the conversation as we the truth about our own heart, because Blessed Are the Pure in Heart.
