 Stained - Windows into our Heritage | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 55:40

Stained by Ridicule Acts 2:1-13 Being ridiculed for your faith is as old as the faith itself. Indeed, even on the Church’s very birthday – on Pentecost – the disciples are ridiculed as they speak in tongues. “They have had too much wine,” their antagonists say (verse 13). How do you respond in the face of ridicule? Jesus promises, “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you” (Matthew 5:11-12).

 Memorial Day 2010: Fully Armed | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 56:59

Memorial Day Weekend: Fully Armed! - Ephesians 6:10-18 There have been many long-standing feuds: Irish Catholics and Protestants, the Montagues and Capulets. But none of these are as long-standing as the feud against God and Satan. Blessedly, we already know the outcome of this battle, however. Our Lord wins! And yet, even though the outcome of the battle is certain, God calls us to be His soldiers, fighting with the weapons He gives us. This weekend, we are reminded of these weapons which can take down Satan and save souls.

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...You're Trapped in Addiction | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:22

Hope When…You’re Trapped by Addiction - Exodus 32:1-6, 19, 21-24, 30 At the root of all addiction is idolatry. Satan tempts us to take a good gift of God such as food or drink or sex and turn it into a god-thing and that’s a bad thing. As we review Israel’s idolatry in the wilderness, we see addictive behaviors such as drunkenness (cf. verse 6), situated in a context of rank idolatry. Yet, even in such a sinful context, Moses holds out the hope of atonement, for there is rescue from addiction!

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...Your Marriage Falls Apart | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 52:35

Weekly Bible studies from Concordia Lutheran Church in San Antonio, TX.

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...You're Depressed | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 54:24

Hope When…You’re Depressed Ruth 1:1-5, 8a, 16 Naomi is a depressed woman. Throughout the book of Ruth, she blames God for her heartache and hardship. She says, “The hand of the LORD has gone out against me” (Ruth 1:13). And yet, the hand of the LORD is not against Naomi. For through the faithfulness of her daughter-in-law, Ruth, God works to restore the fortunes of Naomi. God can restore us out of depression and despair as well! On Mother’s Day, we also remember how we are called to honor our mothers even as Ruth honors Naomi.

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...Your Children Rebel | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 58:08

Hope When…Your Children Rebel 1 Samuel 2:22-26 Eli has wicked and rebellious sons. The disobey God’s commands and even abuse women. When Eli tries to talk to them, his efforts prove feeble and futile. His sons do not listen to him. However, there is another young man in this story named Samuel who will eventually become the greatest prophet in all Israel. Eli may have lost his biological sons but he finds a son from God in Samuel. We too have a Son from God in Jesus. When our children rebel, we can give thanks that God’s Son never rebelled, but fulfilled the will of His Father perfectly. And His perfection covers over our children’s rebellion and over our rebellion as well.

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...You're Estranged | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:31

Hope When…You’re Estranged 1 Samuel 18:9-14, 21, 31-33 David and his son Absalom are not on good terms. Indeed, one time David says of Absalom, “He must not see my face” (2 Samuel 14:24). This estrangement continues until finally, Absalom is killed in battle. It is only then that David realizes how futile his estrangement from his son has been. When sin estranged us from God, He did not allow that estrangement to remain. Rather, He sent Jesus and deal with us a loving father deals with his son – firmly, but compassionately.

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...You're Stretched too Thin | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 54:20

Hope When…You’re Stretched Too Thin Exodus 18:13-18, 21-23 Have you ever felt overwhelmed? Moses knows how you feel! He took on too much. Blessedly, his father-in-law encouraged him to delegate his tasks. One of the great spiritual dangers of our world is the danger of having too much to do and not enough time for what – and who – matters most. Do you delegate what you need to delegate so that you have time for your family and for God?

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...You're Caught in Blame | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 50:02

Hope When…You’re Caught In Blame Genesis 3:1-13 “My wife tricked me!” At least, that’s Adam’s excuse when God questions Adam as to why he broke God’s command. Adam blames his wife for his sin. He tries to pass the buck. How often do we try to blame others for our faults and pass the buck of our foibles to others? The blame game destroys relationships and families. Thankfully, we have someone who took the blame our sins deserved and died the death we should have died – Jesus Christ. Rather than playing the blame game, Christ removes our blame of sin.

 Fit for Life: Finishing Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 49:56

Finishing Fit 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 At this time of year, when we consider the passion of Christ and how he “completed” the work his Father set before him (cf. John 19:28), it is good to ask, “How will we complete our lives? Will we complete our lives with our integrity in tact? What kind of legacy will we leave for future generations?” Anyone can begin a fitness regimen, but sticking with it to the end is difficult. Yet, this is what God calls us to. How are we running this race of life?

 Fit for Life: Financially Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:01:20

Financially Fit 1 Timothy 6:3-11 Appropriately managing your money requires appropriately managing your heart. For the human heart can become easily ensnared by the allures of money, piercing a man with many griefs (cf. 3:10). Financial fitness, then, requires both a portfolio check and a heart check. As you steward your money, consider not only what your money can do for you but what your money means to you.

 Fit for Life: Relationally Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:02

Relationally Fit Matthew 5:21-26 Jesus offers a series of three teachings in these verses, all concerning how we steward our relationships. In verses 21-22, he talks about our relationship with our brother in the context of our relationship with our own heart. In verses 23-24, he talks about our relationship with our brother in the context of relationship to our Lord. In verses 25-26, he talks about our relationship with our brother in the context of our relationship to the world.

 Fit for Life: Physically Fit cont. | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:57:48

Physically Fit 1 Corinthians 6:12-20 Our bodies are gifts from God and ought to be stewarded as such. Stewarding our bodies includes not only how we treat our bodies – the foods we eat, the exercise we get – but how we use our bodies. That is, do we use our bodies for things which dishonor God such as sexual immorality or drugs? Paul addresses both how we treat our bodies and use our bodies in these verses.

 Fit for Life: Eternally Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 52:17

Eternally Fit John 3:1-16 Before we focus on our fitness in this life, we must focus on our fitness for the next. Fitness for eternal life is something we can never earn or achieve; rather, it is granted through water and the Spirit when we are born from above.
