Christian Gratitude [Luke 17 11-19] — Christian Life Series #1
References: Luke 17:11-19 Part of the Christian Life mini-series: Christian Gratitude. Dr. Olford focuses on the need for abounding thankfulness in light of God's mercy, healing, and grace. "We talk about being filled with love; we talk about being filled with loyalty; we talk about being filled with devotion. But ultimately and basically that all arises from whether or not we know what it [means] to be grateful. What it is to be thankful." Luke 17:15-16 reads, "Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks."  ______________________________________________ Dr. Stephen Olford's radio messages and sermons can also be accessed on your mobile device or smart speaker through these free podcast channels: Apple Podcast Google Podcast Spotify Podcast Amazon Music / Audible ✅ Please subscribe/follow ❤️   Our website: https://www.olford.org/  ______________________________________________ About Olford Ministries International Encounter is a half-hour program featuring the expository preaching messages of the late Dr. Stephen Olford. Dr. David Olford is the host of the program.

The Great Omission [James 4:12-17]
Failure to relate the Lordship of Christ to every area of your life constitutes the greatest omission in the world. So often, we are led astray by thinking that the only sin that God pays attention to is the deliberate, willful violation of that which constitutes God’s holy law. But as a matter of fact, this text teaches that to sit back and do nothing is to sin just as greatly.

No man can know that concept of God which makes him worship, no one can know God in all the reality of His revelation in Jesus Christ, no one can look into the face of Jesus Christ and meet Jesus Christ, and do nothing about it.

A Skeptical Man Who Became A Spiritual Man — Changed Lives Series #6
References: John 11:7 , John 11:17 , John 14:1-6 , John 20:19-29 Skepticism is a feature of every person, to some extent. And some people, by reason of their personality and temperament, struggle greatly with it. But God Himself, in the person of Jesus Christ, is able to master a lack of faith and to transform the skeptical person into a spiritual person. The life of Thomas is a fascinating study. In it, we learn how our Lord dealt with skepticism. When we use the adjective “skeptical,” we do not use it with any sense of flippancy. A flippant man is never truly a skeptic; in fact, he lacks skeptical ability. The skeptic is one who looks carefully into things in order to determine their deepest meaning. This is what Thomas was like.   ______________________________________________ Dr. Stephen Olford's radio messages and sermons can also be accessed on your mobile device or smart speaker through these free podcast channels: Apple Podcast Google Podcast Spotify Podcast Amazon Music / Audible ✅ Please subscribe/follow ❤️   Our website: https://www.olford.org/  ______________________________________________ About Olford Ministries International Encounter is a half-hour program featuring the expository preaching messages of the late Dr. Stephen Olford. Dr. David Olford is the host of the program.

A Bewildered Man Who Became A Believing Man — Changed Lives Series #5
References: John 4:46-54 Aial, the nobleman of this story, possessed many things and had no need that could be detected on the surface. We may reasonably assume that he was in service at the court of Herod Antipas, the tetrarch of Galilee. Indeed, some have suggested that he may have been Chuza, Herod’s prime minister (Luke 8:3), or even Manaean, Herod’s foster brother (Acts 13:1). His eminence and influence, however, had not immunized him to the tragedy of sickness and threatening death. His child was seriously ill and all human help had proven to be in vain. In the face of this tragedy, his resources fell short, and he became a bewildered man. So, in desperation, he came seeking the only One who could heal his son, even the Lord Jesus Christ. He was a bewildered man who became a believing man. What is interesting about this man is that he did not come to Jesus because of his faith. His faith was defective. He came because he wanted to exhaust all of the possibilities for a good outcome - and Jesus was last on his list of possibilities.  ______________________________________________ Dr. Stephen Olford's radio messages and sermons can also be accessed on your mobile device or smart speaker through these free podcast channels: Apple Podcast Google Podcast Spotify Podcast Amazon Music / Audible ✅ Please subscribe/follow ❤️   Our website: https://www.olford.org/  ______________________________________________ About Olford Ministries International Encounter is a half-hour program featuring the expository preaching messages of the late Dr. Stephen Olford. Dr. David Olford is the host of the program.

A Moralist Who Became A Loyalist — Changed Lives Series #4

A Moralist Who Became A Loyalist — Changed Lives Series #4
References: John 1:43-51 , John 21:2 Nathanael was one of Christ’s twelve disciples. If we were to write his biography, it might be a short volume, for not much is said about him. What we do know, however, is that he was a moral, upstanding man. He was a man of good character. But Nathanael's good character was not enough. He needed more than good character. The story of Nathanael is a fascinating story. As we study his life, it is not difficult to deduce that he was a man of character. Without question, he was a student of the Old Testament Scriptures. When Jesus spoke of Nathanael as sitting “under the fig tree” (v. 48), there was a special significance about this descriptive phrase. “The fig tree,” in those days, was a sort of booth where devout Jews retired for meditation, prayer and the reading of the Holy Scriptures. He was, therefore, a man of convictions. He was not a simpleton, not an agnostic, but a devout man. Many believe that he was a disciple of John the Baptist. He was also a man of morality and integrity. Jesus could speak of him as a man “...in whom is no guile” (v. 47). In other words, he was a man of sincerity and straightforwardness. But with all this there was still something missing in Nathanael’s life. There was an inward dissatisfaction which made him long for the appearance of the Messiah. And that confrontation with Jesus Christ came sooner than he expected; and in our story we see how Jesus Christ transformed a moralist into a loyalist.  ______________________________________________ Dr. Stephen Olford's radio messages and sermons can also be accessed on your mobile device or smart speaker through these free podcast channels: Apple Podcast Google Podcast Spotify Podcast Amazon Music / Audible ✅ Please subscribe/follow ❤️   Our website: https://www.olford.org/  ______________________________________________ About Olford Ministries International Encounter is a half-hour program featuring the expository preaching messages of the late Dr. Stephen Olford. Dr. David Olford is the host of the program.

A Nobody that Became A Somebody — Changed Lives Series #2
References: Luke 8:40-48 According to the perception of most people, hope is in short supply. But when Jesus is on the scene, hope is abundant and real. This is a message about a woman who reached out in faith to Jesus for physical healing, and how she received wholeness in every part of her life. Her disease had socially positioned her as a nobody. She could not enjoy a loving touch from her husband. Or if she was single, no one would be wanting to marry her. She could not participate in the religious life of her day. She couldn't even shop without people trying to avoid her. But one day while all eyes were riveted on Jesus, she got into the crowd and reached out with a touch of faith to Jesus. And Jesus reached back with a touch of love and healing.    ______________________________________________ Dr. Stephen Olford's radio messages and sermons can also be accessed on your mobile device or smart speaker through these free podcast channels: Apple Podcast Google Podcast Spotify Podcast Amazon Music / Audible ✅ Please subscribe/follow ❤️   Our website: https://www.olford.org/  ______________________________________________ About Olford Ministries International Encounter is a half-hour program featuring the expository preaching messages of the late Dr. Stephen Olford. Dr. David Olford is the host of the program.

A Tax Collector Who Became A Benefactor — Changed Lives Series #1
References: Luke 19:1-10 We live in a very busy but lonely world. Everyone has experienced loneliness; that lost and longing feeling. There is only one answer to loneliness ultimately because there is but one person who can change the life and fill the voids and fulfill the longings - yes all longings. That Person is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the maker of the human heart and He is the healer of the human heart and He is the one who is seeking and desiring to save all lost hearts.We come upon an individual who is lost, lonely and full of longings in our text today. It is characteristic of Luke that he alone tells the story of Zaccheus. It seems that he takes particular pleasure in relating incidents which bring out the character of Christ as the Friend of sinners. So we have here the fascinating human story of a tax gatherer whose life was dramatically changed by contact with and commitment to the Savior. No one, not even Zaccheus, would have believed that his life could be so changed in one day if you would have told him so. But that is just what the Savior can do - and does do - in a life that trusts Him.    ______________________________________________ Dr. Stephen Olford's radio messages and sermons can also be accessed on your mobile device or smart speaker through these free podcast channels: Apple Podcast Google Podcast Spotify Podcast Amazon Music / Audible ✅ Please subscribe/follow ❤️   Our website: https://www.olford.org/  ______________________________________________ About Olford Ministries International Encounter is a half-hour program featuring the expository preaching messages of the late Dr. Stephen Olford. Dr. David Olford is the host of the program.
