Description

What do we know about God? And love? About the laws of God for abundant living? Being happy? Living a satisfying life? What do we know about death: Jesus said to his Disciples before he faced death, "Do not be afraid...." What have we discovered about the church? Is it really, as scripture says, "the pillar and bulwark of the truth"? What have we discovered about the worship of God and prayer? Are there "more things wrought by prayer than this world dreams or, as the poet says? What have we discovered about faith? The Bible says, "This is the victory that overcomes the world - our faith." Is that true? What have you discovered about God? What is God like? Where is God? Is God really the maker of all things? Jesus Christ came to reveal God to us! What do you know about love? "Love makes the world go 'round" we used to say. And it is a powerful need of every human being. Jesus taught us about love! What do you know about finding inner peace? What have you discovered about how to live? My point is that the religious resources are even greater than the physical resources of the universe. The kingdom of God is the greatest dream ever to enter the human mind. It is a vision worthy of our utmost allegiance. It is the goal of history. "To be a Christian means to be possessed and dominated by a hope of the kingdom of God," said Albert Schweitzer. It is the central theme of Jesus' teachings. He set before us this noblest ideal of individual life and human society - God's rule in the human heart and in the human community.show more

About M Glynn Burke

Dr. Glynn Burke's sermons and writings address timeless matters of universal appeal, as seen through the Christian worldview. In 1955, at the age of 25, Dr. Burke became one of the youngest ministers ever called to First Christian Church in Maysville, Kentucky. He also served as a minister of First Christian Church in Columbia, Missouri, in the 1960s before taking the position of senior minister of Central Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky. During his 25-year tenure at Central Christian, from 1970 to 1995, Dr. Burke served as president of the Christian Church in Kentucky and of the National Disciples Peace Fellowship. He served as Bible lecturer on a trip to the Holy Land in 1981, and attended world assemblies of the Christian Church throughout Europe and the Middle East. In 1995, he was the co-winner of the Bluegrass Chapter of the National Conference's Lauren K. Weinberg Humanitarian Award. Dr. Burke was born in Junction City, Kentucky. He graduated cum laude from Transylvania University and received his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from College of the Bible (now known as Lexington Theological Seminary), where he served on the Board of Trustees for 23 years.
