The Power of Prayer

David Bahn - Reflections

1x
Do you want to be the exception?
Too often we want to fit in rather than stand out from the crowd. God wants people to be exceptional in their love, grace, godliness, and mercy. Noah was such a man. Jesus is The Exception for all time.

What would make him do that?
We do what we do because we believe what we believe. What do you believe? Are you showing it in everyday ways?

The Perfect Exception
Evil is easily seen and all too often obvious. God's people need to be exceptions to that. And when we fail, we can thank God for the perfect exception in Jesus!

Object Lesson Writ Large
How do you learn the hard lessons of life? Your own school of hard knocks? Or through the mistakes of others? Noah has something to teach us about God's ways - far beyond the flood. 
04:32

Why are you sorry you made man, O God?
What kind of grief did God experience in these ancient days when the evil of men and women grew unfettered? 
04:45

Angels, Warriors, and Heroes
Who are your heroes? Large and in charge people? Godly and humble servants? The Hero of Heaven is mighty to save...and we need such a hero desperately!
04:54

How do you spell relief? "N-O-A-H"?
Noah's name means relief, rest, or comfort. But relief is not spelled N-O-A-H, or C-H-I-L-D-R-E-N, or S-P-O-U-S-E. There is, nonetheless, even here a prospect of something more.

How long do you want to live?
Lots of people want to live to a ripe old age. How old do you want to get?

No Exceptions
Do you make exceptions? Do they become the new rule? What about God. Be glad he doesn't make exceptions to his promises we receive by faith!

930; 912; 910; 895, But Who's Counting?
Would you want to live 930 years? Or are these lifespans in Genesis 5 simply symbolic? Even at face value, there's a lesson here, reflected in Psalm 90:13: Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

The Facts of Death (Make the Message of Easter ever More welcome!)
Genesis 5 has a refrain, "And then he died." It's a result of sin, and it makes the message of Easter ever more welcome!
03:11
April 4, 2021
Easter Fear, Love and Trust
Easter joy is abundant, and rightly so. But the fullest experience of Jesus' resurrection will lead us to fear, love, and trust in the God who saved us through Jesus' life, death, and resurrection!

The Most Profound Prayer of Good Friday
Do you know the three prayers of Jesus on Good Friday? Which of these is the most profound?

The Power of Prayer
Is it my fervent intensity or God's gracious promise and name that gives prayer its power?
03:29

When is it NOT a good time to pray?
Is prayer ever not appropriate? Don't be too quick to answer, even though praying in Jesus' name is always appropriate.

Ruthless Arrogance
What do we do when we're confronted with bullies and those who take advantage of their power for their own good and to our or others' harm? Pray!

Sin's Creeping Encroachment
A little nibble here. A larger taste there. Pretty soon you're downing giant gulps. That's the way with sin, and we see it unfolding in these last verses of Genesis 4
04:16

Did you grow up around here?
We all grew up east of Eden. That means the best we might experience in this world is but a dim reflection of the Paradise of God to which God invites us.

Ripples
Our actions have ripples. They can be ripples of love and grace or ripples of harm and danger. 
03:59

Ripples
What are the impact of our actions on others? Are you aware of how your actions might lead others toward or away from Jesus?

Better Bloodspeak
How are you with the idea of blood? How does Abel's blood compare with Jesus' blood? Listen as it speaks...
04:25

Far Better than Karma
Do you really want repayment from those who have wronged you? Are you ready to repay your harm of others? There is a better hope in the blood of Jesus.

"Am I my brother's...?"
Are you your brother's keeper? Careful with your answer. Listen to find out.
