Do you love God for His presence or for His presents? In the story of Job, Satan contends that no one serves God except for selfish reasons. However, God disagrees and asks the question “Hast thou considered my servant Job?” In this message, Dr. E. Dewey Smith teaches us three interesting points about God's conversation with Satan and his relationship with Job.
For one, God reminds Satan that he needs permission, thus God “permits” Satan to to kill Job’s children, rob his wealth and afflict his body with sickness. When you listen to this message and see how Dr. Smith breaks down what we learn from this and the other 2 reasons God asked that question, you will rejoice!
Can we be like Job? Through all of his suffering and pain Job never complains. What questions do you have for God when you are under attack? Remember, questioning God is not a sin, as long as we don’t question his existence. Today’s message is a good start to get the answers to your questions.

Have you ever experienced difficulty remaining committed to someone who has hurt or wronged you? Has it ever occurred to you that God may sometimes feel the same way when it comes to us? We often put God in a position to look beyond our faults to stay committed to us. In the 32nd chapter of Exodus, we learn that God wanted to incinerate the people of Israel when they thought God had abandoned them. They began to worship their own god, a golden calf, that they created to replace Him. In this message, Dr. E. Dewey Smith teaches us how God remained committed to His children at a time when He wanted to destroy them for turning their backs on Him. Purchase this sermon today to learn the steps you should take to stay committed when you are faced with challenging people and troubling situations. #CommittedToChrist #LiveBetter Exodus 32:4-14 0/17/17

Are you celebrating Jesus, in good or challenging times? In this rousing sermon, Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr. teaches us to give God thanks for sustaining you through it all. We must remember all things happen for a reason. In the first ten chapters of the gospel of John celebration was paramount: the Canaan wedding; Samaritan woman at the well; lame man healed; multitude fed with two fish and five loaves of bread; woman caught in adultery; and the blind man healed. However, in John 11:38-41, the death of Lazarus teaches us how to celebrate Jesus by realizing, remembering and recognizing that God can bring good from your worst circumstances. Your pain has a purpose, to show others, so that God get’s the glory. As you listen to this sermon, Celebrate Jesus by disallowing life challenges to extinguish a celebratory spirit. In all things give thanks for the good that He has promised to bring forth in your life and celebrate every day! #Celebrate #LiveBetter John 11:38-41 11/26/17
