Gutsy Compassion

Compassion is a wrenching of the guts for another person. It comes from seeing their needs, and it results in action. When Jesus saw the leper, he was moved with compassion, then healed him. Likewise, when Jesus saw the crowds, he was moved with compassion, then fed them. Our eyes and our hands are connected...

Down and Dirty for Jesus

Do you practically know what it means to wash another person's feet? First of all, it's dirty. Second, they might argue with you while you do it. Pastor Ray and Alexandra share real life, modern examples of washing each other's feet. This kind of love in action builds love between Christians and is an outreach...

Praise Jesus! We began today with a goal of $780 to cover the Pilgrim's Progress radio bill. Thank you to all who've given. The radio bill is now covered!

The Danger of Self Love (2004)

Listen to Pastor Ray describe the parallel between the modern Western church and that of Corinth in the days of the early New Testament church. Allow the Holy Spirit to search your heart for any hidden vestiges of pride. We're no longer ashamed of pride but rather glory in it and this mist of pride...

I Am Not Ashamed of the Gospel (2004)

In today's encore sermon, Pastor Ray contrasts the true versus the false gospel. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (i.e. the sin) in your life and mine. Have you allowed Him to do that by dying to your own life? Be encouraged to fully surrender and be transformed by the mighty power...

Thanks to a donation after yesterday's broadcast ended, we began today with a goal of $900 to cover the Pilgrim's Progress radio bill. By the end of the broadcast, we had a goal of $780. Because we will not go in debt, we cannot continue teaching until we reach this goal. Will you help support...

For the first time in the history of Pilgrim's Progress, we had a $0 offertory day. As you enjoy the hymns and prayers in this message, will you pray about giving? We still need $1,400 to cover the cost of this month's Pilgrim's Progress radio bill. 100% of what you give (minus PayPal fees) will...

Removing the Stumbling Blocks

Why isn't there revival? Some say, “God brings revival when he wants to. Let's just go on with our lives until God decides to bring it.” But the truth is, revival is like a stream flowing just beneath the surface. By removing stumbling blocks in our lives, we can step into the stream. Pastor Ray...

24 Hour Love

For many in the church today, attempts to win people to Jesus lack deliverance. New Christians remain enslaved to sin, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, or pornography. Eventually, they leave the Christian faith. We wonder, “What happened?” Jackie Pullinger's experience with heroin and opium addicts show that there is a better way. Christians do not have to...

On Believing Ground

Flowers that grow from bulbs have to be pulled up and put in storage for the winter. Then, they will bloom in the spring. This can sometimes describe our Christian experience. We get pulled out of our normal or comfortable situation. Though we may feel raw and not understand God's purpose, we do know that...
