Podcast #159: “The Cure” by Unspoken

Looking for The Cure in Mark 2

Over and over in the Bible people seem to “get it all wrong” when it comes to God and His ways. You see offenders in both the Old Testament and the New. When will we learn that our thoughts and ways are nothing like His thoughts and ways? “The Cure,” by Unspoken, points us to an important scene with Jesus.

Not only is Jesus the cure for our brokenness, but He has an important message for us in Mark 2.

On this episode I discuss:

Podcast #67: “Good Fight” by Unspoken, Paul, Timothy & Nehemiah

Do you ever feel like you are leaving one battle for another day after day? “Good Fight” by Unspoken leads us to the New and Old Testaments to see what Scripture teaches us about “fighting the good fight.”

Nehemiah-4-14-square

I cover a lot of ground this week and I hope you will take the time to dig into Scripture for yourself. We can all use tips on how to better “fight the good fight” of our faith.

On this episode I discuss:

  • Reading 1st and 2nd Timothy all at once to get the big picture
    • If you are not familiar with these letters from Paul to Timothy, read them in an easy to read translation like New Living Translation or New International Version
    • If you are familiar with many of the passages found in these letters, read them in an unfamiliar version. I used The Voice translation online at www.BibleGateway.com
  • The background of the relationship between Paul and Timothy
  • Focusing in on the three verses that specifically mention the “good fight” – 1 Timothy 1:18, 1 Timothy 6:12 & 1 Timothy 4:7
  • Paul teaching Timothy to fight the good fight through prayer
  • To fight the good fight is to persevere
  • Paul teaching Timothy to fight the good fight through running from evil and pursuing righteousness
  • Nehemiah‘s good fight to rebuild the wall and one of his enemies, Sanballat
  • Description of the characteristics of Nehemiah’s enemy
  • Lessons from Nehemiah in fighting a good fight

Podcast #39: Start a Fire by Unspoken, Matthew 5 & 2 Timothy 1

This week’s song leads me down memory lane to one of my favorite childhood songs, “The Little Light of Mine.” The band, Unspoken, however, makes a bolder request when they sing out “Start a Fire.” Happily, both songs lead us to our desired destination…God’s Word.

2-Timothy-1-6-square

Join me on a journey to one of Jesus’ most famous sermons and Paul last letter.

This Week’s Challenge

Spend some time in Matthew chapters 5-7 and study the Sermon on the Mount. Meditate on our focus area and determine if you are letting your light shine. If your light seems to be more of an ember these days, hop on over to 2 Timothy and learn from Peter’s last letter on how to fan into flame the gifts that God has already placed in you.
