INNOCENT VICTIMS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: CHILDREN
Discussed by Sarah Holliday
with The Washington Stand (www.WashingtonStand.com/)

Sarah Holliday is a reporter with The Washington Stand, a publication of the Family Research Council. Today, Sarah reveals that 464,922 unaccompanied children have been encountered by the US Customs and Border Protection Police nationwide in recent years.

Click here to read Sarah’s op-ed on this topic.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How are unaccompanied children able to cross the Southern US border?

Are children used for money by smugglers? Sarah Holliday explains that parents are not just sending their children alone to America; the children are being kidnapped and stolen from their parents/families and smuggled solely for profit.

What steps are implemented to ensure their safety and well-being? Do border patrol personnel perform medical checks and ID checks?

Oftentimes, unaccompanied children arrive with an address written on their arm or a piece of paper. Does the government verify that these children are being sent to relatives or friends of their family? Sarah reveals that many times, the address was given by the very trafficker who brought them to America!

Is the MSM reporting on this serious problem?

We know that trafficking illegal immigrants, especially children, is Big Business for smugglers and sex traffickers. Do non-profits within the US also benefit monetarily?

How do we go forward in protecting the children and stopping the flow of illegal immigration into the US? Sarah encourages everyone to pray, vote, and become involved. She says: “This needs to be dealt with right now because they are hurting this county.”

GOD’S WILL AND SOVEREIGNTY
Discussed by Pastor Brent Johnson
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

Mark Lanier is away for a few weeks, so friends and pastors from CFBC are filling in while he is gone. This week, Pastor Brent Johnson starts off the summer series, “Attributes of God”, with a lesson on God’s will and sovereignty from Ephesians 1:11-14.

NOTE: WE ARE REPEATING PASTOR BRENT JOHNSON’S FIRST LESSON IN THIS SUMMER SERIES DUE TO ELECTRICITY, SIGNAL, AND INTERNET INTERRUPTIONS AFTER HURRICANE BERYL IN THE HOUSTON AND SURROUNDING AREAS.

To view Pastor Brent Johnson’s video for this lesson, click here.

QUESTIONS / ISSUES DISCUSSED:

GOD’S WILL AND SOVEREIGNTY IN BELIEVERS

How do we know what God is doing in our lives? Pastor Brent uses the analogy of loving apples verses loving his wife…

How can we show God that we love him?

Will God give us “everything” we ask for? Pastor Brent reminds us that it is important to read and study the Bible in context and not pick and choose only the verses we like.

Does God sometimes leave us in our circumstance to help us grow closer to him?

What can we learn from the High Priestly Prayer by Jesus? (John 17)

What are our responsibilities as we follow God on this earth?

Scripture References: Romans 8:28; John 14:12-15; Ephesians 2:9-10

EXPERIENCE JESUS’ REST
Discussed by Pastor Jeff Young
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

Pastor Jeff Young continues the summer series this week entitled: “Promise Keeper”. The focus each week will be on a different promise from God found in the Bible – both the Old and New Testaments. His sermon this week is on Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Pastor Jeff Young is Executive Pastor for CFBC.

Find Pastor Jeff Young sermon here.

QUESTIONS / ISSUES DISCUSSED:

How and why did Jesus teach the people about the importance of resting? Pastor Jeff references God’s words to Moses in Exodus 33:14 “And he said, 'My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.'”

Does Jesus really want us to cast our burdens upon him?

Wise Words of Winnie the Pooh: “Today is my favorite day. Yesterday, when it was tomorrow, it was too much day for me.”

How did Elijah handle stress – the good or the bad way? How did God communicate to and through Elijah? Tune in tomorrow as Pastor Jeff continues with the story of Elijah.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, text the word JESUS to 77069 and a pastor or counselor from CFBC will call you back.

PRAYER
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program



Heavenly Father,

You are our God and we are your children. We no longer live in darkness, but live in your glorious light.

Your son is the true vine and you are the vinedresser. We have been grafted onto the true vine. May we bear much fruit.

May our words and actions exhibit the fruits of your love for all your creation: Your joy, your peace, your patience, your kindness, your goodness, your faithfulness, your gentleness, and your self-control.

May I be quick to fall to my knees seeking forgiveness when I bear bad fruit. Help me, Father, to crucify my fleshly passions and desires.

Help us all, Lord, to keep in step with the Holy Spirit.

All for the cause of Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray,

Amen
