Show Notes

Key questions answered in today’s show:

1. Philippians 4 says that we should always rejoice in the Lord. How do we do this? What advice do you have for believers who struggle to rejoice?

2. What exactly did Paul mean, or what exactly happened in 1st Corinthians 5:5, when he sent the sinful brother to Satan for the destruction of his flesh?

3. My question is one that perhaps a number of us that were born-again later in life have. Because we walked according to the ways of the world (Eph 2) for a long period of time, many of us have suffered the consequences of our own disobedience. We know that His promises are for us, so in Romans 8:28 we may see through that promise how He used our disobedience to humble us, and call us out of the world, and yet we may question why God did not call us out sooner as those who were raised in Christian homes and converted at a young age. We know that being raised in a Christian home is a great privilege. Not that it converts anyone necessarily but still a privilege. So I struggle with the question…. does God love me less, that He left me so long in unbelief?

4. I have heard you say that Satan can’t place thoughts in our minds and that when we are confronted with Satan or attacked we should use God’s word. What does it really mean to come in contact with Satan?
