Praise & Shine

Wake up to inspiring music with an inspiring message Sunday morning on Quicksie 98.3. Scott Goettel is your host for Praise & Shine every Sunday morning at 8 AM.

Love Yourself // Praise Shine

Jesus tells us that, “The most important commandment is to Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is just as important, Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these.” God is clear with the command to love him with all our being…

It is difficult, however, to fully submit yourself to the desires of God and his purpose for your life if you can’t obey both of these commands. We know we must love our neighbors as ourselves; however, this is difficult if we don’t also love ourselves.

Trusting The Bible // Praise Shine

How has your life been shaped by Scripture? As you accept it by faith, how do you expect your life to change?

Let’s put our trust in our Heavenly Father, to show us new things about Him as we read the Bible. Through Jesus, He will teach us His ways, and show us His love.

The True Nature Of Love // Praise & Shine

The true nature of love is sacrificial, according to the apostle Paul, in 2 Corinthians 8:3. He explained to the Corinthians that the Macedonians gave “even beyond their ability” so they could meet the needs of the apostles and others. They even “pleaded” with Paul for the opportunity to give to them and to God’s people. The basis for their giving was the sacrificial heart of Jesus Himself. He left the riches of heaven to come to earth to be a servant and to give His very life. “Though he was rich, yet for [our] sake he became poor” (v. 9). May we too plead with God so that we might “excel in this grace of giving” (v. 7) in order to lovingly meet the needs of others.

Accessible To All // Praise & Shine

The Bible describes the road that leads to eternal life as narrow “and only a few find it” (Matthew 7:14). The gate is considered small because God the Son is the only bridge that can reconcile fallen man and God the Father through the power of the Holy Spirit (vv. 13–14; see John 10:7–9; 16:13). However, Scripture also says in Revelation 5:9 that believers from every people, nation, and societal rank can enter heaven and will bow before the King of Kings and worship together around His throne.
