Previously on the Hour of Power
- Responding to the Secular Society by Bobby Schuller
Twenty-five years ago, forty-five thousand children died every day either from starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. That's quite incredible. Today it's down to nineteen thousand. Now we have a long way to go from nineteen thousand to zero, but there is a big difference between forty-five thousand and nineteen thousand.
- Easter: Resurrection Life by Bobby Schuller
Good morning! He is risen! He is risen indeed!
- Follow the Rabbi: The Rabbi's Prodigal Father by Bobby Schuller
I'll never forget when a dear friend of mine, Pastor Chad, informed us all that he had never seen Star Wars. You could feel the air leave the room. We couldn't believe he was turning 28 and he'd never watched any of the Star Wars movies - not the good three or the bad three. He hadn't seen any of them. This was an incredible thing.
- Follow the Rabbi: Cultivating the Rabbi's Words by Bobby Schuller
Today we're going to continue as we're journeying through lent, we're going to continue talking about what it would have been like to follow Jesus the Rabbi. I know many times when my faith has been weak, I've thought it doesn't seem fair. If I got to be one of the 12, I would have been able to walk with Christ and see all these miracles and experience all these great things, and you know I would have never doubted. I would have trusted him. And yet you look, you see the disciples, many of them they actually did abandon Jesus, all except the Apostle John. And what I remember is that God offers us this scripture in this story, but so often we read the scriptures in the light of western American or whatever country we're in, we read it in our own light. And we do what's called isogeting where we put our own meaning into the text when it doesn't exist. One of the best things we can do is understand the culture and the language and the way that people taught in Jesus' context to really understand the scripture.
- Follow the Rabbi: Rabbi's Dust by Bobby Schuller
Today we're beginning a series called Follow the Rabbi. We're going to take some time over the next few weeks to dig into the perils of Jesus, and use a narrative, even our imagination to remember many of the stories that are told in the gospels so that we can, like the disciples, find ourselves following Jesus and living in his world.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: God Takes Everything to Give Everything by Bobby Schuller
If you have your Bibles, you can open it up to Matthew 25. My lovely wife Hannah read the story. Love you, Hannah. You're such a princess. Did such a great job. And she's so smart. Hannah was a valedictorian, by the way, in high school, so she's brilliant, among other things.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Wealth, Acquisition & Management by Bobby Schuller
Today, we're talking about money. Yeah! And before we do that, I just want to say a couple of things. First, to those of you who are watching on television, if you're ever here in Orange County, come and visit us. We want to meet you. I would love to give you a big old bear hug and thank you for watching our program. If you're ever in Orange County or near Disneyland, we're seriously only a bike ride away. Come down and visit us. We're at 9:30 and 11:15. We'd love to see you.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Faithful in the Little Things by Bobby Schuller
So today we're going to continue talking about money. We're going to talk about it for a while because money is at the center of how our society values people, businesses, etc. When someone asks about your net worth, they mean how much do your assets exceed your liabilities? They don't mean how important you are to people, which is one reason why that phrase is horrible. So we need to talk about how people associate value with how much money they have or earn.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Strategy for Non-Anxious Living by Bobby Schuller
So, today, we are continuing a conversation about money. And particularly we're talking today about how money is related to worry. Do you ever worry about money? If you don't, you're either a liar or a saint! Yes, we all worry about money. It doesn't matter how rich you are, it doesn't matter how poor you are. If you think about money, you probably worry about money, and today's message is essentially this, that you don't have to worry - not about money, not about anything if you treasure God and if you let God treasure you. If you treasure the things of God and you allow God to treasure you, you don't have to worry. Worry is all about what you treasure and who treasures you.
