Host Terry Lowry interviews influential and knowledgeable guests on relevant topics for today.



A PRESSURE CAMPAIGN
Discussed by Brian Phillips
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)

Earlier this month, a school official at Borman Elementary in the Denton school district sent an email pressing school employees to support anti-school choice candidates in the upcoming Republican primary. Employees were told that their time would be “covered” and that the school expected everyone to vote.

Today, Brian Phillips gives more details about the school official and the obvious attempt to railroad pro-school choice candidates in the upcoming election. Brian Phillips is the Chief Communications Officers with the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Brian Phillps discusses more details about the email…

Have Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Senator Paul Bettencourt chimed in on this blatant misuse of taxpayer money?

Is this an isolated incident?

FACT: Only 43% of the students in this Denton school district can read at grade level and only 32% are on math grade level. Should the school district be focusing on that issue, not campaigning for candidates?

REVELATION 2
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)

Day 4

Mark Lanier continues his lesson series on the book of Revelation. This week, he teaches on the importance of fulfilling our responsibility as a Christian out of honor and not obligation.

To view Mark Lanier’s video for this lesson, click here.

If you have a prayer request, need Scripture encouragement, or would like a copy of Mark’s lessons each week, email wantmore@biblical-literacy.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

LETTERS: To the Church in Ephesus (2:1-7)

What was John’s rebuke to the church?

What is our responsibility as Christians as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission? Do you go to church and serve others out of obligation or out of honor? Mark reads from 1 Corinthians 13, 1 Thessalonians 1, and John 14.

Why should we still pay attention and heed John’s warning and rebuke today?

What is the promise John wrote of in this letter to the people in Ephesus?


LETTERS: To the Church in Smyrna (2:8-11)

Where was Smyrna? Where was the church located?

Who was the Bishop? (More on Polycarp tomorrow.)

Were the people in Smyrna being persecuted against?

Did the people receive a rebuke or a warning?

KINGDOM CONFLICT
Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 4

What is the Kingdom of God and how do we advance it? Champion Forest Baptist Church Senior Pastor Jarrett Stephens continues his series “The Kingdom Project”. In this series, CFBC pastors will explore the essence and impact of God's Kingdom. Their desire is for Christians to live a life aligned with God's purpose so that we can make a lasting Kingdom impact.

This week, Pastor Jarrett warns about the spiritual battles we will face as Christians seeking the Kingdom of God. The good news, though, is that prayer is the best weapon to use in those battles!

QUESTIONS / ISSUES DISCUSSED

John Piper once stated: “Prayer is primarily a wartime walkie-talkie for the mission of the Church as it advances against the powers of darkness and unbelief.” Click the link above and fast-forward to the one-hour mark to view the full quote.

Priest O. Hallesby wrote: “The secret prayer chamber is a bloody battleground. Here violent and decisive battles are fought out. Here the fate for souls for time and eternity is determined in quietude and solitude.”

PRAYER: Helps us stay fighting.

How can prayer help us in spiritual warfare against the enemy? (Matthew 6:13)

What did Jesus say about praying to fight the enemy? (Matthew 26:41)

PRAYER
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program







Some words and thoughts for today’s prayer are from Psalm 29.


Heavenly Father, all glory and honor to you.

May we worship you, LORD, in the splendor of your holiness.

O LORD, when you speak, the world shakes.

Nothing is born that you do not ordain.

Nothing dies that you are not aware.

O LORD, I am in awe of your great power and acknowledge your many blessings.

O LORD, give strength to your saints.

Help each to prevail against the fiery darts from the evil one and his minions.

May the righteous stand stall and prevail.

May your saints never compromise.

May we never give up nor give in.

In all we do, hold us steady with your right hand.

Enable each to accomplish their task assigned by you.

O LORD, unbelievers say all manner of evil against your prophets and even your Son.

May we keep our eyes focused on our tasks.

May we not hear any words of discouragement.

Help us to make your enemies our friends, so next time we work alongside each other.

And, Father, if you grant us tomorrow, let’s repeat.

Humbly praying in and through the name of Jesus Christ.

Amen
