Transformations on This High Mountain

In this passage, Jesus was transformed, and he wants to transform us with two central and simple lessons: to look to Jesus only, and to listen to him. Join Dr. Martin as he explores and applies Matthew 17:1-8.


Obstacles to Receiving the Grace of God

God bestows grace upon his children and this world. Yet we can convince ourselves that we are not to blame for the sinful condition of our lives. Join Dr. Martin as he explains that until we overcome the obstacles within ourselves, we will continue to receive the grace of God in vain.


A Real Walk with God

“Walking with God” involves progress, and Christians are supposed to advance in their spiritual life. And, just like learning to walk has difficulties, the fundamental difficulty involved in walking with God is the matter of sin. Listen in as Dr. Martin explains that all of us must deal with our sins if we are to enjoy the life that is real.


Receiving the Grace of God in Vain

God’s grace not only accepts us, it also transforms us. But if all we want out of God is acceptance without transformation, we are receiving his grace in vain and our Christianity is worthless. Join Dr. Martin as he identifies the ways we resist God’s grace so we can turn those obstacles into avenues.


Three Key Questions

Are you curious about the identity of Jesus Christ? The challenge to discover truth can be overwhelming. Listen as Dr. Martin explore the answers to three questions: (1) Who is Jesus? (2) How does someone come to the right answer to that question? (3) Why does having the right answer matter?


Eternal Life is REAL Life

Written centuries ago, the biblical letter known as 1st John deals with a theme that is forever up-to-date: the life that is real. John had discovered that satisfying reality is not to be found in things or thrills, but in a Person—Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Listen to Dr. Martin explain three vital facts about the life that is real.


The Enriching Power of Loss and Gain

Isaiah explains how God calculates loss and gain in our experience as he prepares us for the Day of the Lord. Listen as Dr. Martin challenges us to trust that God knows how to enrich us through loss.


The Marks of a Healthy Church

How do you know if a church is going in the right direction? Evaluating a church isn't so easy, so listen to Dr. Martin as he explores the characteristics of a healthy church.


Rediscovering the Bible

Each and every time that the Bible has been rediscovered it has invariably resulted in changed lives and revitalized religion. Listen as Dr. Martin explains how a fresh rediscovery of the Bible can change your life.


Simeon's Song of Hope

Simeon is a relatively obscure character in the Christmas story, but he was a master at waiting. Listen as Dr. Martin explores the life lessons from Simeon's experience of waiting to see the Lord's Christ.


Three Christmas Presents

Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are given three gifts. Join Dr. Martin as he explores "three Christmas presents" given by Jesus that are better than anything you received under your tree.


Why Jesus Came - Christmas Candlelight Service

In connecting the beginning and the end of Jesus’s earthly life, Hebrews 2:14-15 take us step by step through a biblical view of Christmas to explain why Jesus came to earth. Listen as Dr. Martin explains the results of our faith in Jesus’s birth, life, death, and resurrection.


The Transforming Power of Hope and Humility

Isaiah helps us set our hearts on God. The key is not just what we believe but what we value. Listen as Dr. Martin explains that as we come alive to God’s promised future, we dethrone our idols, and the Lord alone is exalted within us.


Mary's Song of Faith

Mary certainly made an arduous journey to Bethlehem, but wise eyes will see that she also made an internal journey of trust in God. Dr. Martin explains the emotional and spiritual distance of Mary's journey as he advises us how to move from anxiety to acceptance and adoration of God's plan for our lives.


Memorizing the Word of God

As disciples, our goal is not merely to get into the word; our goal is to get the word into us. No other discipline will have a more powerful effect on your life than memorizing Scripture. Listen as Dr. Martin explains the benefits of and practical ways to memorizing Scripture.


The Urgent Need for Situational Awareness

Isaiah aims to sober us with who we are, give us hope in who God is, and urge upon us an unblinking realism about how we experience redemption. To recognize the significance of redemption, Dr. Martin explains that we must be aware of the situation within us and around us.


The Angels' Song of Peace

The peace that Jesus Christ gives is a personal, permanent peace. Listen as Dr. Martin explains that Jesus not only saves you and provides you with eternal life, He also gives you a pervasive peace with God that affects your past, present, and future.


The Truth About Cats and Dogs

3rd John tells us about 3 influential people. Two are serving the Lord “like a dog,” and one is prancing around the church “like a cat.” Follow along as Dr. Martin jovially explains the similarities of those addressed by John with the characteristics of dogs and cats.


Zechariah's Song of Faith

What is your favorite Christmas song? Each year we love to sing those classic Christmas songs to get us ready for the holidays. As familiar as we are with the songs of Christmas, there are four songs recorded in the Bible to celebrate the birth of Jesus that most of us aren’t familiar with. Listen as Dr. Martin explores Zechariah's song of faith recorded in Luke 1.


The Urgent Need for Reverential Repentance

The preaching of Isaiah exposed the hypocrisy of Israel's worship. Listen as Dr. Martin explains that God-honoring worship and repentance takes four steps: confrontation, accusation, invitation, and decision.
