First Assembly NLR Audio Podcast
Weekend messages from Pastor Rod Loy and FirstNLR.

The first commandment is, "You shall have no other gods before Me."  The temptation is to say, "I've got this one down, I don't pray to evil spirits.  I love Jesus."  If that is your response, then you've missed the intent of this commandment.

When Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to worship Nebuchadnezzar, they knew they would be facing the fire. It wasn't a figure of speech, but an actual furnace in which they were to be burned alive. Christians must endure big problems in life, and from this story we can learn what we should remember when we are in the fire.

At some point, every parent has hears the excuse, "But, everyone is doing it!", prompting the obligatory response "If everyone was jumping off of a cliff...". Even as adults it can be difficult to follow God's commands when the world around us expects otherwise.

Satan wants you to be known not for who you are but for what you do and what you have done.  He wants your sin and your past to define you.  God wants you to see yourself as He sees you--to give you a brand new name

Have you ever been given useless driving directions like, "Turn left four streets before the dead end." or "If you see Walmart you've gone to far."?  It is maddening to be lost and helpless.  When you are lost on the road or when you have lost your way spiritually, what you really need is clear directions that tell you HOW to find your way home.
