One of my friends requested that Ken and I do a podcast on what it means to bear your cross. It has been a while in the making. But I believe that it will be worth it. It will definitely give you hope.
Do you have friends and family members with serious life threatening medical conditions? Have you thought about your own frailty and mortality? Ken and I look at some verses to give us hope. My father-in-law is in Intensive Care right now and it has been life and death for the last few days. That, and with Easter, looking at Christ’s Death and Resurrection really got me thinking. As always, I hope this encourages and challenges you.
Ken and I can’t decide on a title. Deals with a guy having a horrible life. Jesus redeems the guy’s life. There is a woman with a horrible medical issue for 12 years, that Jesus sorts out. There is a dad having the most horrible day of his life when Jesus meets him there. Have you had a horrible week or month? This might be just the ticket for you.
You don’t have to have a horrible time to enjoy this podcast though. LOL. Take care my friends, I hope that it encourages you.
Today Rich and I finally launch another podcast. After missing all of January we are finally back. So sorry for the long delay.
Today Rich gives us a look into the book of Mark, chapter 2. We discuss the healing of the paralyzed man, Jesus’ call of Levi (Matthew) the tax collector, fasting and the sabbath. I think he coins a new term, struggleicious. Hmmmm… I like it.
We hope you enjoy this episode. Please feel free to post your comments or questions.
Today Rich and I discuss the passage in Luke Chapter 8 starting in verse 22 where Jesus and his disciples are crossing the sea of Galilee in a boat when Jesus lies down to take a nap and a storm suddenly comes up. As the disciples began to freak out it becomes a wonderful illustration for us on how we are to trust Christ when the storms rage in our own lives. After recording this podcast I was encouraged and Rich and I hope that you will be encouraged as well.
Rich and I discuss Luke chapter 15 including the parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin and the prodigal son. It is a new perspective on search and rescue and we hope will give you a renewed heart for reaching the lost.
Rich also mentions a video featuring Brian “Head” Welch, formerly with the band Korn. Brian had a remarkable conversion experience with God and the video is top notch. You can find it down below. You can also find many more videos in the series by searching for “I Am Second” featuring people like Darryll Waltrip, Joe Gibbs, Jason Castro,Steven Baldwin, Nate Larkin and many others.
Today Rich and I talk about the amazing book of Jude and its application to our modern lives in the church. Being written so long ago you would think that the Bible wouldn’t really apply to our lives today but nothing could be further from the truth. God knows the hearts of men and women and has created his word to speak through the centuries to the needs of our hearts.
Today Rich starts reading in 1 Chronicles 11:45 where we talk about ancient walled cities and the highly fortified gates that were an important strategic defense. Then we go to Matthew 16:13-17 where Jesus tells us that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against the church. This is a passionate and exciting study of our role as conquerors against the kingdom of darkness.
