God’s Great Mercy, Part 2

Sunday, December 9, 2018

Lasserre Bradley, Jr.

“I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim; for I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: I will not enter the city” (Hosea 11:9).

As we look at Hosea 11:5-12, we consider three things. First, a wayward people. It describes the people as being “bent on backsliding.” Secondly we see, a faithful God. He promises not to execute the fierceness of His anger because, “I am God and not man.” And thirdly, a great promise. He declares, “They shall walk after the Lord.” We see here an amazing work of grace.

Sing Unto The Lord, Part 1 - Sunday, November 25, 2018

O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth” (Psalm 06:1).

On today’s broadcast I am talking about a man who was a dear friend of mine. V. J. (Sonny) Lowrance, Jr., who went home to be with the Lord October 21st. For many years he directed most of the singing we have used on the Baptist Bible Hour. He loved the Lord, he loved the gospel of grace, he loved to sing and he loved to teach others to sing. I hope you will enjoy hearing some of the songs he wrote and directed and a review of his testimony.

The Unspeakable Gift, Part 2 - Sunday, November 18, 2018

“Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift” (II Corinthians 9:15).

As we approach the Thanksgiving season, we can all think of a long list of things for which we should give thanks; but above all we should give thanks for God’s unspeakable gift, Jesus Christ. We first consider that Christ is unspeakable. We look at Paul’s experience and his descriptions of the greatness and glory of Jesus Christ. We look at the Old Testament prophecies and trace the footsteps of Jesus during His earthly ministry. After all of the wonderful things that are said about Him, the conclusion is words are not adequate; He is unspeakable. We also note Christ is a gift. A relationship with Him is not something you can earn, He is a gift. And finally we emphasize we should be thankful.

Waiting On The Lord, Part 1 - Sunday, November 4, 2018

“Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord” (Psalm 27:14).

None of us like to wait; yet we are here admonished to wait on the Lord. The question is sometimes asked, “What does that mean or how can I do that.” In today’s message we will look at nine biblical principles that will give guidance and encouragement to wait on the Lord, although waiting is not the inclination of our human nature.

The Father's Love, Part 2 - Sunday, October 28, 2018

“When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt” (Hosea 11:1).

First in the text we are called to remember great mercy. God loved His son and delivered him just as He delivers those who were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world. But then we see a sad departure. The people turned from serving God and sacrificed to Baalim. And then next, we see a gentle teacher. God says, “I taught Ephraim to go, taking them by their arms.” As a father would teach his child to walk, holding him up by his arms, so the Lord blessed His people in olden times even as He blesses them today by His sustaining grace.

Remembering Jesus, Part 1 - Sunday, October 14, 2018

“This do in remembrance of me” (I Corinthians 11:24).

In writing to the Church at Corinth, the Apostle gives some important instruction regarding the observance of the Lord’s Supper. He quotes the words of Jesus to emphasize we do this in remembrance of Him. We first consider the need to remember. We need to remember because there are so many distractions in the world that we can fail to have the truth of His perfect sacrifice always before us. We then talk about how we are to remember. And finally, we consider what we are to remember. We are to remember the Savior’s death, burial, resurrection and His second coming.

A Time To Seek The Lord, Part 2 - Sunday, October 7, 2018

“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you” (Hosea 10:12).

We consider three things as we look at this portion of scripture, The Condition, The Consequences and The Cure. It is a very basic lesson; not difficult to understand. The condition of the people was they were disobedient. The consequence of their actions was judgment. But there was a cure: seek the Lord. May we today earnestly seek Him for the help and blessings we so much need in our lives individually and in our churches.
