Sacrifice and the Christian Life

Here is a new episode of the radio featuring Donald McConnell, Jeff Saltzmann, and myself. This show can also be downloaded as a podcast in itunes. Simply search in the itunes store and click the link for the podcast.

Sacrifice and the Christian Life

Over the memorial weekend we take time honor those who sacrifice to defend our freedoms. These men and women choose to protect and defend others even over their own safety. This idea of sacrifice runs all through Christianity. From the Old Testament sacrifices, to the sacrifices made by Christ in taking on flesh and being obedient even unto death. It is in Christ's example that the Christian is to model his or her life. For scripture tells us in 1 Peter 4:1 "Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking."

In this show join host Donald McConnell, Dean of Trinity Law school; Jeff Saltzmann, Pastor of Bethel Grace Baptist Church in Bellflower; and Doug Eaton of Trinity Law School as they discuss "Sacrifice and the Christian Life." Join them as they look at questions such as, "Why did God demand the sacrifice of animals in the Old Testament? Did those sacrifices actually atone for sin? What did Paul mean when he said he was filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, "What apologetic role does suffering play?" The panel will also be spending some time looking at three chapters from Calvin's Institutes that deal with this aspect of the Christian life; On Self-Denial, On Bearing Our Cross, and On Meditating on the future life.

God Bless,

I'm good friends with Jeff, we attended Bethel Grace while in California; and it was my parent's church for a few years. Jeff is a good brother --- small world!

Hey Bobby,

Jeff is my pastor now. :-) We have been praying for you. Glad to hear the surgery went well, and we are praying that the next rounds of chemo go smoothly.

That is really cool; tell Jeff hi for me (he needs to learn how to blog, he never reponds when I comment at the Bethel Pastor's site ;-).

Thank you for the continued prayer; I know we're going to make it through this season, but not w/o prayers like your's!
