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

Have you ever been afraid to share a difficult truth?  Paul asks, "Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?".  Telling the truth can cause divison, it can make enemies, and if we make truth-tellers our enemies then we become blind to the truth.  How can we be brave enough to tell the truth and strong enough to hear it?

When we find ourselves in a low valley--when we've spectacularly failed--we often ask questions like: "Why me? How could I fail like this? How did I ever let myself get to this place?  What went wrong?"  Whether you have been there, or will someday, this message will be an eye-opener.  Are you trying to live your life through your strength, or God's?

With so many messages bombarding us every day, who do we listen to?  How can we really please God?  What does it mean to follow Jesus?

Sometimes, we find ourselves in traps:  addiction, pornography, and many other things can keep us trapped in sin.  Like a mouse attracted to cheese, there was initially something appealing in the trap.  What looked good, easy, and fun at first didn't stay that way.  It was a trap.

All you want to do is get out, but you can't get yourself out of a trap.  You need a Rescuer.
