    07/25/2002-George Murray-The Gain of Dying Well
    Scripture: Philippians 1:21

    For the commited believer, dying can and should be gain - whether dying in the physical sense, or dying to self.

    07/09/2002-George Murray-God's Part, Our Part
    Scripture: Philippians 2:12-13, Judges 1:1-8

    Emphasizing God's sovereignty to the exclusion of our responsibility is wrong, and vice versa. The choosing of Gideon's army is a great illustration of the necessity of holding both of these truths as equally important.

  • Thu, 05/09/2002
    05/09/2002-George Murray-John the Baptist: The Greatest Miracle
    Scripture: Luke 10:20

    While God’s miraculous ability to transcend nature is wonderful, the greatest miracle is when He transforms human nature.

  • Tue, 04/23/2002
    04/23/2002-George Murray-John the Baptist: Elijah & Samson
    Scripture: Philippians 2:12-13

    God is sovereign; we are responsible. Neither truth contradicts the other, as powerfully illustrated by comparing John the Baptist with Elijah and Samson.

    03/19/2002-George Murray-John The Baptist : Signs of the Spirit's Fullness, Part 2
    Scripture: John 10:41-42

    The most important thing about the Holy Spirit is not the Holy Spirit, but the Lord Jesus Christ. John the Baptist’s Spirit-filled life radiated the characteristics of Jesus.

  • Tue, 02/26/2002
    02/26/2002-George Murray-John the Baptist: Sign of the Spirit's Fullness, Part 1
    Scripture: John 10:41-42

    Are signs and wonders the clear proof of the Holy Spirit’s fulness? Not necessarily. Though John the Baptist never performed a miracle, he was filled with the Holy Spirit.

  • Wed, 02/20/2002
    02/20/2002-George Murray-The Local Church: Indispensable Missionary Sender
    Scripture: Acts 13:1-4

    Don’t go to the mission field without the unqualified commendation and backing of a local church. You need this for accountability and support. Besides, it’s biblical!

  • Fri, 01/25/2002
    01/25/2002-George Murray-Equity or Eternity?
    Scripture: Luke 12:15-21

    The man in this parable was an honest, early-rising, hard-working farmer who got what he deserved because he worked for it with his own two hands. Why, then, did God call him "a fool"? The answer may surprise you.

  • Tue, 01/08/2002
    01/08/2002-George Murray-Knowing Christ
    Scripture: Philippians 3:10-15

    One sure sign of spiritual maturity is the desire to grow, and one major hindrance to growth is an unhealthy obsession with the past.

    God is good and His goodness is great, even when it may not appear to be; and, God wants us to understand, continue in, and demonstrate His goodness to others.

    10/18/2001-George Murray-Go! Look! Be Moved! Pray!
    Scripture: Matthew 9:35-38

    We’re not moved because we’re not looking. In this passage, Jesus give us the solution for reaching the whole world.

  • Wed, 10/17/2001
    10/17/2001-George Murray-Four Ways God Answers Prayer
    Scripture: Jeremiah 33:3, 1 John 5:14-15

    When we are “standing on praying ground” God always answers our prayers, but it may be in a different way than we expect.

  • Thu, 08/30/2001
    08/30/2001-George Murray-Look the Lamb of God
    Scripture: John 1:29

    This helpful study points out the reality of sin, the necessity of the Lamb, and the simplicity of looking and believing.

  • Fri, 05/18/2001
    05/18/2001-George Murray-The Purpose of God's Choosing
    Scripture: John 15:16

    The Bible does not talk about hundreds of different things; the Bible talks about one thing in hundreds of different ways. That one thing reveals why God chooses us to belong to Him.

    Scripture: Romans 1:16

    Victorious Christian living is God’s intended present-tense salvation norm for every believer.

  • Tue, 04/03/2001
    04/03/2001-George Murray-We Need The Gospel for Present-Tense Salvation
    Scripture: Romans 1:16

    Not only did we need to believe the Gospel for initial salvation, but we must believe and accept its provision for present-tense victorious Christian living.

  • Tue, 03/06/2001
    03/06/2001-George Murray-Bloodguiltiness
    Scripture: Psalms 51:14

    The bloodguiltiness of the Church is far greater than the bloodguiltiness of Cain. The man he killed went to heaven; the people we ignore go to Hell. Can we, like Paul, say “I am free from the blood of all people?”

  • Thu, 02/22/2001
    02/22/2001-George Murray-Do You Have a Missionary Heart?
    Scripture: Mark 16:15

    Missions is not primarily a matter of geographic distance or ethnic difference; missions is primarily a matter of Gospel availability. While all of us may not become missionaries, we all need to have a missionary heart.
