Palmer St. Podcast: Celebrating the Scriptures

Psalm 119 is the longest Psalm, the longest chapter in the Bible.  Chuck Smith said, “This psalm provides some of the most powerful arguments for studying the Bible that have ever been proposed.”

Palmer St. Podcast: Developing a Common Identity

We live in a society that values individualism and independence.  We live in an age that is perhaps the most individualistic ever.  For God’s children, independence is not the ideal toward which we strive.   When Christians grow properly, they don’t grow alone.

Palmer St. Podcast: Becoming Holy

What is holiness anyway? From dictionary.com:

  1. 1. the quality or state of being holy; sanctity
  2. a title of the pope

How about sanctity?

  1. “holiness…” (This isn’t getting us very far.)

Something That Lasts

Let’s face it. Everything we do in this world is plagued by impermanence. Our own mortality – that nagging, irritating, upcoming appointment with death – can bring a sad sense of dissatisfaction to anything we hope will endure. “All flesh is grass,” says the prophet. “The people are grass.” That’s us.  

The voice said, ‘Cry out!’
And he said, ‘What shall I cry?’
‘All flesh is grass,
And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;
Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.'”
          – Isaiah 40:6-8 (NKJV)

Because we mortals cannot keep going, the best we can hope for is to latch onto something that will outlast us – something like the Word of God. The Bible; let’s devote ourselves to it. The Scriptures; let’s keep them ever before our eyes. God’s thoughts, God’s words; let’s fill our minds with them…

Having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because

    ‘All flesh is as grass,
    And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
    The grass withers, and its flower falls away,
    But the word of the Lord endures forever.'”
          – 1 Peter 1:23-25 (NKJV)
