The Journey with Ron Moore

Not everyone knew about Gabriel’s visit to Zechariah regarding the birth of John the Baptist, the one who would prepare the way for Jesus. But the manner of his birth to parents well past childbearing age, and Zechariah’s recovered speech left them “filled with awe.” They knew that this child was destined for a special assignment, “For the Lord’s hand was with him.”

The angel told Mary that her cousin, Elizabeth, who was well beyond childbearing years, was six months pregnant. As soon as the angel left, Mary hurried to the hill country. Seeing Elizabeth’s pregnancy confirmed to Mary that Gabriel’s visit was not a dream; she would indeed give birth to the Son of God.

The visit from the angel Gabriel was frightening and the news was unbelievable, but Mary surrendered to God’s will. When the angel’s words to her were confirmed by her visit to Elizabeth, who was with child in her old age, Mary burst into song. Her song is filled with Scripture and truth about God

Worn Out By Obedience

Do you desire to “turn the corner” in your walk with Jesus? If so, maybe you don’t know where to start. You feel held back by the past, or maybe you’re calloused by sin.

Well, King David, the man after God’s own heart, experienced this very thing. In Ron Moore’s book “Worn out by Obedience” David is presented as a spiritual mentor. He’s both flawed and on fire. He’s the person you are and the person you want to be.

In “Worn out by Obedience” you’ll discover how God often molds your heart, like King David’s, in seasons of brokenness, loneliness, and disappointment—sometimes even in your waywardness.
