Join us today for part 4 of this sermon series as Pastor Mike continues preaching about the thief on the cross (Luke 23:32-43). Consider the following questions as you listen. How can you tell if you are elect? Does God grant us assurance of salvation? Can you know for sure if you are going to Heaven when you die? Are you worthy of grace?

Pastor Mike continues preaching about the thief on cross (Luke 23:32-43). Think about this story and ask yourself some questions as you listen to this show. Does Christ have the power and willingness to save sinners? Does our salvation depend on our will or God's mercy and grace? Where does faith come from? Is baptism necessary for salvation? How do you know if you are elect? Were you born dead in sins? How much do you value the atonement?

Recently Pastor Mike preached this sermon at Bethlehem Bible Church in West Boylston, MA. Please open up your Bible and follow along. Pastor Mike examines a passage of scripture closely (Luke 23:13ff) that talks about the awesome power of Christ's saving work. Christ was crucified in between 2 criminals - one said "Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!"... but the other rightly viewed his own sin and Christ's lack of sin by saying: "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." After this we have an exchange between him and Jesus in vs 42-43 And he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." And he said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise." What can we learn from this? 1. Salvation changes the sinner immediately When justification happens, sanctification starts. Titus 2:11-14 says: 11For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. At the time of salvation - not only is your status changed from enemy to friend, but also the new nature comes out and begins to change the sinner. 2. Listen in next time...

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (ESV)

In this episode, we continue our discussion of God’s disciplining by grace, and examining the distinction between law and gospel. The Law is good, but salvation is by grace.

Welcome to No Compromise Radio Ministry! Today Pastor Mike and Pastor Steve talk about the place of support groups in the local church. Do Divorce Care, Celebrate Recovery, 12 Steps, Alcoholics Anonymous, or other recovery groups have a place in Christian churches--NO, they do not. Read Romans 15. We have a sin problem, and as a result we do not need to go to recovery groups and psychologists, but rather we need to be confident in Scripture. Read Psalm 119, Psalm 19, and you will see that the Bible is authoritative and sufficient. 2 Peter 1:3: His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence... We get this knowledge through the Word of God. Pastors who allow support groups in their church deny the sufficiency of Holy Scripture. If the Bible is sufficient, why do we seek out recovery groups? If you have a problem with a certain sin, you should not sit in a church building with eight other people who have the same exact problem-you will be going no where. It does not work. You want Christ, not porn, to be a unifying theme-it further splinters the church. You need the Road to Repentance, not the Road to Recovery. Do no Christianize support groups rather use/read the Bible. Support groups tolerate sin; Churches ought not to tolerate sin. Read 1 Corinthians 5. Do not try and redefine sin, rather you need to look at Biblical methods for getting over your sin. Get busy not with sin, but by serving your local church. You can have free and gracious forgiveness based on Christ's perfect life and death!

Pastor Mike gives us further biblical teaching about the subject of drinking alchohol. For review from last week: 1) Drunkenness is always a sin 2) Alchohol isn't the problem, it's what we do with it that can be (Psalm 4:7, Song of Solomon 1:2,4)
