Show Notes:

Whether you are a teen or a parent or a homeschool grad, this show is for you!

Do you struggle with guilt and condemnation?

Do you compare yourself to others and feel like you don’t measure up?

Do you sing songs about Jesus, yet not feel any kind of emotion?

Do you think it’s hard to live the Christian life?

One of my new favorite songs is by Cody Carnes, who is married to Kari Jobe by the way.

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Sorrow may come in the darkest night
But the cross has the final word

There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
There’s nothing greater than the name of Jesus
All the honor, all the power
All the glory to the name of Jesus

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Evil may put up its strongest fight
But the cross has the final word

There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
Nothing greater than the name of Jesus
All the honor, all the power
All the glory to the name of Jesus

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
The Savior has come with the morning light
The cross has the final word

What is that final word?

Well, let’s talk about the cross and how it impacts your life today.

The Sin Problem

Holiness of God

Nature of God vs. Nature of Sin

Addiction to Sin

Consequences of Sin

The Soul that Sins will Die

The Heart of God

God’s Love & Compassion

Choosing to Satisfy His Own Wrath with His Own Son

Loving His Enemies

The Decision of Christ

Do the Will of the Father

Give Up His Life

Take On the Sins of the Whole World

Experience the Wrath of God.

“It is Finished”

The Triumph & Victory of Christ

Death Defeated

Wages of Sin Paid

Power of Sin Broken

Resurrection Power

The Power of the Cross

We died with Christ

Our sinful nature is dead!

It is against our nature to sin.

When we sin, we can confess our sin and receive forgiveness.

The Christian life is about surrender; not effort.

Grace saved us & Grace enables us to live for Him.

The Cross’s Final Word

You are Forgiven!

Your Debt is Paid!

You are Free from Sin!

You have an Advocate with the Father!

You are Lavished with Love!

No Greater Love than This that a Man would Lay Down His Life for His Friends!

“Just one more, Lord, please, just one more” Hacksaw Ridge.

He has begun a good work in you and will carry it on to completion

You have been entrusted with His glorious message!

 Notes

Linda Rondstandt Song “When Will I be Loved?”

I’ve been cheated, been mistreated
When will I be loved

I’ve been put down, I’ve been pushed ’round
When will I be loved

When I find a new man that I want for mine
Always breaks my heart in two, it happens every time

I’ve been made blue, I’ve been lied to
When will I be loved

The Longing in Our Hearts to be Loved

Where does that longing come from? What kind of love do we long for? We think it is romantic love we long for but we see so many broken marriages.

The Romantic Fairy-Tale: Aunt Matilda, Hollywood, Action Movies, Rom Coms,

Let’s Renew our Mind about Romantic Love. (Romans 12:1-3)

What does the Bible say about Marriage (Genesis 1:27 & Genesis 2:20-25 & Malachi 2:14-16 & Ephesians 5:21-33)?

The Purpose of Marriage: A Team on a Mission from God

If we find the perfect marriage: is that enough?

The One Who Loves Us

Jesus loves us with an everlasting love.

Jesus doesn’t ever get frustrated with us.

Jesus has prepared a beautiful place for us in Heaven.

Jesus doesn’t grow tired of us. He always tells the truth, always forgives, always teaches us, always has our best interest at heart.

Jesus is working all things together for good in our lives. He is working in us to will and to act according to his good purpose.

Men & Woman who Gave up Marriage for the One Who Love Us:

Apostle Paul, met Jesus on the road to Damascus, passionate to reach the Gentiles, died a martyr’s death.

Lottie Moon, Southern belle missionary to China, gave away all her resources to the Chinese when facing plague, famine, and war, Refused to marry a man who didn’t believe in Creation.

Without Jesus

Love fades away. We grow tired of one another. We hurt one another. We are not satisfied because the other person can’t meet all our needs.

When Will I Be Loved?

It is the devil who lies and cheats and misleads us with wrong information and dreams.

When are you loved????? NOW!

How can we prepare for marriage?

  1. Love Jesus first now and always J
  2. Pray for a spouse (James 4 J ) Pray for your partner in the team on a mission
  3. Prepare to be a good husband or wife in practical ways J

 

When Will I Be Loved?

Best of HIRL Christmas Series: Jesus vs. Santa

Free homeschool podcast discussing Christmas and Santa ClausDoes Santa have any place in the celebration of Christmas? If you listen to some homeschoolers talk about it, event the mention of Santa Claus associated with Christmas will land you in the “loner’s corner” of your co-op. Yet, others celebrate good ol’ jolly Santa Claus right next to the baby Jesus. There is also a third category of homeschoolers (like Fletch) who enjoy stirring the pot and cracking off remarks like: “You know…if you rearrange the letters in Santa…it spells S-A-T-A-N.” Fletch can be cheeky that way!

Where does that leave us?

Should we allow Santa to have a seat at the Christmas table or should he and Rudolph be hidden high up on the shelf with that pesky elf?

With sleighbells ringing and all the yuletide they can muster, Fletch and Kendra sit down for an open, honest discussion about the celebration of Christmas and answer the question: What should Christian homeschooling parents do with Santa Claus at Christmas? Tune in and join them for a fun and lively debate on this edition of HomeschoolingIRL.
