In one of the final parables Jesus ever delivered, the Master laid out His high expectations for those who serve Him. Jesus likened His followers to stewards who are entrusted with great riches.

In this sermon from Terry Studdard, we learn of the high bar set by the Lord for those who call on His name.

For God So Loved The World MP3 Link
In the golden text of the Bible, the Savior said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). It is vitally important that students of the Scriptures understand the full meaning and import of these word, thus evangelist Nate Bibens helps our appreciation of the incredible statement Jesus made so long ago.
In the Bible, sin is often depicted as a plague which has ravished the world. On one occasion, the great prophet cried out: “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there?” (Jeremiah 8:22). A balm is a fragrant oil used to treat sickness or soothe wounds. Jeremiah was looking for a cure for the nation. He desired his people to be rescued from certain death. Was the request of this man of God ever granted? Was his question ever answered? The venerable evangelist Johnny Elmore gives the Biblical answer in this beautiful sermon.
