How Is Your Operating System Part 2

“Set your affection on things above, not on things of the earth” Colossians 3:2. “Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity (love), which is the bond of perfectness” Colossians 3:12-14.

Janie and Sharon compare computer operating systems with our Christian operating system. In every system there is an authority.  Thoughts are processed and decisions are made based on the authority we use for operating our system. There are six possible sources for authority in our lives. 1) Past Experiences 2) Present Circumstances 3) Reason or Intellect 4) Emotions 5) Physical Senses 6) God’s Word. A teaching handout is available to download. Once we understand which of these authorities we are using for our operating system, we can make the necessary adjustments by “updating” “upgrading” “downloading” and “rebooting” our system to allow God’s Word to be the authority in our lives.

How Is Your Operating System

“But as He which has called you is holy, so be you holy in all mannner of conversation; because it is written, Be you holy; for I am holy” 1 Peter 1:15-16.

Janie shares about ways that we can check how well we are operating. It is important to heed to the detailed commands that will improve the way we operate as Christians. She give us thoughts on how to evaluate our life and emotions. When God gives us a command, He gives us the ability to achieve that command. Where are we finding our substanance for our Christian walk? Janie asks us to evaluate where we are getting our spiritual food. Are we seeking the best for our Christian walk or just taking the easy processed stuff. It is important that we be content wherever we find ourselves.

Ways to Foster Spiritual Growth Part 2

“For there is no other Name (Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” Acts 4:12. Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me” Matthew 11:6.

Janie Ratzlaff shares about having a disciplined life which will help us grow in our relationship with God.  What are some of the things that keeps us from growing in our relationship with the Father? Are you calloused to the message of the Gospel? Do you lack motivation? Are you indifferent to the things of the Lord? Do you feel the need to grow? Have you been too busy to notice these things in your life? Are you offended with God Almighty? Janie touches on many of these aspects. As you listen, keep your heart open to hear what the Lord may be wanting to reveal to you about yourself.

Ways to Foster Spiritual Growth Part 1

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing” 1 Corinthians 13 (KJER).

Janie and Sharon talk about the many ways that we can encourage each other to grow. How can we bring the generations together and create a culture of mentoring in the church. Why have we become so stagnant and what we can do to change it. A desire to grow spiritual is up to each individual person, in their relationship with God. However, growth can be encouraged in ways that comes from a heart of love.

The Shepherd’s Field – Part 2

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord fore ever” Psalm 23:6.  As part of the topic “Encourage without Wounding” we draw close to the Lord in “The Shepherd’s Field.” There we are filled so that we can overflow into the lives of others.

Part 2 – Janie and Sharon continue to expand on their discussion of the Shepherd’s field by peeling apart Psalm 23 verse by verse to see the beauty of being in the Shepherd’s care.  Women are noted for their ability to multi-task and it is easy for us to add prayers to the “list” of things to do.  However, getting alone with God in a secret place is so important in our Christian walk. In order for us to encourage one another we must first be encouraged ourselves.  When we are filled in the Shepherd’s field, we can then pour out to others.

Encourage without Wounding – Episode 3

“The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, He will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine” 1 Samuel 17:37.

Sharon and Janie share the story of St. Patrick on this St. Patrick’s Day.  As St. Patrick spent time in the shepherd’s field he drew close to the Lord.  Comparing the story of David, they discuss the importance of a shepherd’s field in everyone’s life.  We will find encouragement from God there which will help us to encourage others without wounding them.  The shepherd’s field is where we are prepared to fight the Goliaths in our life, but without preparation, we look much like the armies of Israel did, hiding and uncertain how to defeat the giant.  “Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

Encourage without Wounding – Episode 2

“He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.  Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!” Psalm 107:20-21.

Sharon and Janie discuss how the wounded can get well.  Wounds can be deep and painful or surface scratches that sting, but either way wounds hurt.  Using the hospital as an analogy, they share the importance of taking medicine that the Doctor (God) orders.  Knowing that medicine is available or having medicine within reach will not work, only when it is taken will it make a difference in our life.  Sometimes we look in the medicine cabinet (Scripture) and we just don’t know what to take that will make us better.  Healing is a process that requires covering the wound in His word.  Showing others our wounds only causes infection and disease.

Encourage without Wounding – Episode 1

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin” Hebrews 3:13.  Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing” 1 Thessalonians 5:11.  It is easy to take these scriptures with the best of intentions and hurt others with our words.

radio-mic-adJanie and Sharon discuss the importance of learning to encourage others without wounding them.  Christians have somehow gotten the reputation of being hypocrites who judge others.  Christians are not intentionally hurting others, so why has this become what people see.  Maybe it’s because in our effort to encourage we are being condemning.  It’s time we change how we encourage others and get a new perspective on encouragement.

Episode 1 – February 3, 2017

When we know what God looks like we are more likely to recognize Him when He shows up in our lives.  We sometimes have a perception of God that does not match who God really is, so truth about His characteristics can bring us into a closer relationship with Him.  The relationship “test” is available to download.

Episode 2 – February 10, 2017

Focusing on God as Shepherd in our life, Sharon and Janie discuss the similarities that we have to sheep and how God protects us and provides for us as a good Shepherd.  Janie shares some interesting facts about how a shepherd cares for the sheep that we can all relate to as God’s sheep.

Episode 3 – February 17, 2017

Episode 4 – February 24, 2017

Sharon and Janie share encouragement to the saints.  They discuss the importance of having a mentor to “do” Christian life with you.  Scripture defines encouragement as exhortation and warning.  When we are involved in each others lives it is easier to tell when they are about to fall over a cliff.

Post-Recorded at KWXC 88.9 Christian Talk Radio – Grove, Ok.  Technical difficulties prevented live recording so Janie and Sharon entered the studio and attempted to share the live version.
