Podcast #134: “To Live Is Christ” by Sidewalk Prophets

Poring Over Philippians 1

I don’t know about you, but I tend to overload myself with distractions and messages. So much so, that I find it difficult to slow down enough to meditate on a thought, on Scripture, or on what God is saying to me. Singing Scripture is a way to meditate on it; and what better way than to use “To Live Is Christ” by Sidewalk Prophets?

Podcast #95: “What a Glorious Night” by Sidewalk Prophets

Taking a Closer Look at the Shepherds in Luke 2

Reviewing the Christmas story can warm our hearts with the familiar, but examining the characters in new ways can bring a richness to the story you may never have considered. Sidewalk Prophet’s song, “What a Glorious Night,” puts the shepherds (and their experience in the Christmas story) front and center. It gives us a unique opportunity to consider this repeated story in a fresh and exciting way.

Exploring Joshua's Story in Exodus, Numbers & Joshua

So the words that brought comfort and direction to their lives can help us as we take each step of our own. “The Words I Would Say” by Sidewalk Prophets renders a tremendous amount of truth just in the chorus. Some of the very words spoken by God Himself to Joshua.
