The Most Important Thing pt 2

Yesterday, I took a side journey down a path of knowing God’s will and we talked about “The Most Important Thing.”  Most people would assume that the most important thing is about our salvation. And that is true – it is very important. But, I want to go deeper than that.

You may believe your salvation is the most important thing. OK. Let me ask you this.  Why do you believe you are saved? What happened that brought you to that realization that you were lost and would spend eternity in hell?

Most people, me included, and I’m sure you, too – would say they came to that realization when someone shared the Gospel with them.  It could also include any number of adverse circumstances in our life, most probably brought on by our own stupid decisions. Which brought to the brink of despair and that is when the Gospel Message finally was able to penetrate our thick skulls to where we started to contemplate it and it finally took root in our hearts and then WHAM – we asked Jesus to forgive us and become Lord of our lives. Right?

Maybe not exact, but pretty close for most people…

But, let’s exam what actually happened…

We heard the Word. 

We believed the Word.

We took action on the Word.

Think about it… that is exactly what happened to us and happens to every believer. PERIOD.

You hear the Word and believe the Word. Then you take action on the Word that you heard and believed. 

Romans 10:9-10 says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead – YOU WILL BE SAVED.”

Look at what the verse says. YOU confess… YOU BELIEVE… YOU WILL BE SAVED.

Before you can confess, you must what? BELIEVE the Word.

Before  you can believe the Word, you must what? HEAR the Word.

So, you believe the Word that you heard and then you what? CONFESS with your mouth and believe with your heart that what you just said is true. Right?

So, let’s circle back…

What is the MOST IMPORTANT THING?

Hearing the Word.  That MUST BE FIRST.

What would then be the MOST IMPORTANT THING?

After you hear the Word – you must BELIEVE THE WORD.

If you believe it – then you act on what you believe.  That is how your prayer of salvation worked!  Can I get an AMEN from somebody somewhere?

So the MOST IMPORTANT THING is believing the Word that you hear. 

You can “hear” with your eyes as your READ the Word.  It is STILL THE WORD SPEAKING TO YOU!  Amen!

OK, I’m over again for today. I thought we would finish this today, but the Holy Spirit is doing something here. So we will take it up here again tomorrow. Ok?

Let’s Pray!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
