#99 – Spiritual Ideas: It’s About Power

Play

Have you considered the power of God in your life?  Paul tells us that he wanted to experience that power.  We discuss that topic today in the wake of the exhibit of God’s greatest power – the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

#98 – Spiritual Ideas: Ephesians, part 3

Play

We continue our examination of the book of Ephesians by reviewing the second chapter of the book.  Paul starts by reminding all of us where we have been and then reminding us of what God has done for us in Jesus.  That the God who is rich in mercy and love has given us who were dead, life.  And He did it “all on his own, with no help from us!”  Furthermore, he brings all of us together in Jesus Christ — the great uniter — to make us all part of the house of God.

We also take a look at an older release from Narration by George.  Seasons of Change features a protagonist who uses Godly principles to lead a people out of the danger of slavery to a life of freedom.

#97-Spiritual Ideas: Ephesians, part 2

Play

We continue looking at the book of Ephesians by studying the second part of chapter one.  As Paul discusses the key to unlocking the spiritual blessing we talked about in the first study, we find that the key may not be a popular one.  In fact, it can be down-right unpopular — but necessary.  Are you willing to do the unpopular?

I also play an extended excerpt from a recently released audio book, The Swaddling Clothes by Amber Schamel.  This is great historical fiction tracing a history of God’s people from King David to the time of the birth of Christ, focusing on the Swaddling Clothes which ultimately covered the baby Jesus.

#96 – Spiritual Ideas: Ephesians, part 1

Play

This is the first in a series of podcasts with teaching from the book of Ephesians.  The Apostle Paul wrote this letter to a church he loved deeply from a Roman prison.  He clearly outlines the Good News of Jesus and then tells his readers what that means for people who follow Him.

In this section from Chapter 1, Paul tells us about the “spiritual blessings” God has bestowed on us; what they are and how to attain them.  Join me as we enumerate these blessings and talk about the key to unlocking them.

#82-Risen: The Story of Lazarus

Play

lazarusThis week, we break from our look at audio books to delve into some spiritual areas.  I recently spent a weekend dealing with the deaths of two parents in two families close to me. Putting these two events so close together stirred my soul deeply.  When I got back to my home church the following weekend, I heard a lesson from John 11 on Lazarus.  What should our perspective be on a story of resurrection?  I share this lesson with you on this podcast.  (This podcast is a bit longer than usual.  I hope you can hang with me!)

#72-Headlines

Play

Headlines IconThis week, we’re stepping away from the world of audio books to look at the timeless word of spiritual ideas.  Let me start with a question: Are you afraid?  Do you look at the headlines or hear the stories on TV news and quake from fear?  How do you cope with that fear?

Some people want to spend a lot of time and money and effort in extreme preparation.  So, we have shows on TV, like “Doomsday Preppers” from National Geograhic.  “A show dedicated to ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it.”  Some people may be paralyzed by fear.  Others may just put it out of their minds.

What should be a Christian’s response to the headlines and news stories we see and hear?  Should we be preppers?  Or hide from it?  Or ignore it?  Do we realize that fear is Satan’s greatest weapon among people of faith?

This week, I want to share a lesson from the preacher at my congregation, Clear Creek Church of Christ, as he discusses what God’s Word has to say about times like these.
