Podcast #143: “One True God” by Steven Curtis Chapman

Unearthing Truth in Jesus' Prayer in John 17

If you knew that the next prayer you prayed aloud over a loved would be one of your last, would you pray for blessings and safety? Or would you fill your prayer with substance? Not for God’s benefit, but for the benefit of the loved one listening to your prayer on their behalf? Steven Curtis Chapman’s song, “One True God” points directly at God, and so does the prayer of Jesus in John 17.

Podcast #142: “Home” by Chris Tomlin

Learning More About Our Future Home in 2 Corinthians 5

What do you think about when you think of home? For some it conjures up happy memories, warm feelings, and/or thoughts of family…for others, not so much. Some of you live in a state or town where your heart considers “home” and others are “far from home.” As Christians we know we are not yet “home” in the eternal sense. Chris Tomlin’s song “Home” speaks of our heavenly home and it leads us to an area of Scripture that can both encourage us and challenge us as we continue to walk out our lives here on earth.

Podcast #135: “Magnify” by We Are Messengers

Putting a Spotlight on God in Psalm 34

“You’re making this into a bigger deal than it needs to be.” How many times have I either been on the giving OR receiving end of this statement? That’s what it means to magnify a situation. We make something appear larger than it is. The thing is, we will NEVER be able to “over-magnify” God. There is never a time where we will fully understand how “large” He is. The power comes in when we magnify God over our situation. This is what the song, “Magnify” by We Are Messengers calls us to do.

Let’s head over to Psalm 34 and magnify the Lord together. I want to realign where my hope is set until He’s all that’s left.

Podcast #122: Being Careful Not to Forget the Lord

Where It All Started in Psalm 119

Over and over in Scripture God instructs His people to remember. He tells them set up markers so they remember. He institutes festivals so they remember. He gave us symbols and ceremonies even going so far as to say, “This do in remembrance of Me.” On this episode I take some time to recount where this whole podcast even began and to rejoice in impacted lives.

Podcast #119: “The God I Know” by Love & The Outcome

Entering into Fellowship with God Through 1 John 1

“Thanks for reading this, I am thrilled to introduce you to the God I know,” says the apostle John (basically) as he opens his letter to believers in 1 John. The duo, Love & The Outcome, seems equally as thrilled to introduce us to God through the lyrics of their song, “The God I Know.” As we continue to read 1 John, however, we are drawn into a deeper understanding of where this “knowing” might lead.
