Conduct becoming a Christian
October 8, 2017
More often than not, we are judged on our lack of qualifications in the world. This week we need to ask ourselves if our daily actions are becoming of being a Christian or do we fit into the qualifications of the world?

Forgive as God forgives
October 1, 2017
HI, Chaplain Mart here and welcome to our weekly Divinity-Divine Charity Anchor Ministries Sermon Video. I am really glad you are here. Pastor Bob's message this week is based on the text, Matthew 18:21-35: "
21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.7 23 “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold8 was brought to him. 25 Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. 26 “At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go. 28 “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins.9 He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded. 29 “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay it back.’ 30 “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. 31 When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened. 32 “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ 34 In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. 35 “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”
Pastor Bob's theme is "Forgive." Forgiveness is when we stop feeling angry or resentful toward someone for an offense, flaw or mistake. Or to cancel a debt. We receive God's undeserved forgiveness for our sins, and the price of our sin, eternal death was paid for by Jesus on the cross. And just as God has forgiven our sins, we too are to forgive those that offend us.

Understanding the Messiah
September 17, 2017
Hi, Chaplain Mart here from Divinity-Divine Charity Anchor Ministries. Welcome in the name of the Lord! Just as everything around us is growing and coming to maturity, may you also, through the Word of God, grow and mature in your faith in Jesus Christ. I am so happy to have you with me today.
Pastor Bob's message this week is on the topic of understanding the Messiah. Last Sunday's Gospel showed the disciples understood who Jesus was. Though they understood who he was, they still failed to understand his work. His work was to complete the Father's plan of salvation, not to fulfill Israel's earthbound views of the Messiah.
The Word of God for Pastor Bob's message this week is Matthew 16:21-26.
"21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. 22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!” 23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” 24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?"
Pastor Bob is the pastor as Divinity-Divine Charity which is located at 900 East Henry Clay, Whitefish Bay, WI. Sunday Services are at 9:30 each Sunday Morning with Sunday School available for Jesus little lambs at 10:40 each Sunday morning.
