In this episode I interview best-selling author Alisa Childers about her book: “Another Gospel? A Lifelong Christian Seeks Truth in Response to Progressive Christianity.” You will definitely want to listen in.
When you’re in over your head, you go to who you know for help. When we don’t take our most urgent pleas to God, it might be a symptom of not knowing his heart. This sermon on Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10 shows how when you know God’s heart, you’re more likely to open yours.
If we don’t know God’s heart, we’re less likely to go to him when times get tough. But if we do, we can find grace and help in our urgent times of need. That’s what this sermon explores on Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10.
If we’re not supposed to store up “treasures on earth,” what does it mean to store up “treasures in heaven” (while we’re still on earth)? This episode and post looks to Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount for some answers.
Like an appetizer before a meal, one day a week for rest and worship is meant to whet your appetite for that glorious day when we’ll truly rest from worry, pain, work and fear. This sermon on Hebrews 4:1-13 explains why and how.
One day a week for worship and rest is “heaven’s appetizer.” What is that, and why does it help us during tough, tiring times? That’s what I explore in this episode about Hebrews 4:1-13.
What if there was a new kind of “displaced person” walking among us but who was outwardly unidentifiable? And what if God’s people could help? That’s what I explore in this sermon on Hebrews 3:1-6.
Jesus’ people are the “very house of God.” In this episode on Hebrews 3:1-6 I explore how this house can be a home for others in a time of wandering confusion.
In this podcast episode, I respond to a question at Westminster’s Q & A Forum: Can you lose your salvation?
When you’re going through something tough, someone else who has “been there” can be a real encouragement, help and source of wisdom. That’s what I explore in this sermon on Hebrews 2:5-18 about the humanity of Christ.
Someone who has “been there” like you will be there for you. In this episode I explore this idea by looking in-depth at Hebrews 2:5-18, the humanity of Jesus, and help for weary souls.
What if we were cheating on God but didn’t know it? What if we DID know it? The opposite of spiritual adultery is single-minded fidelity to Jesus. This is what I explore in this sermon on Hebrews 4:4-14.
Have you ever thought, ‘Well, maybe Jesus isn’t all he’s cracked up to be. Maybe I should consult a fortune-teller or rub that little Buddha’s belly just to ensure I have all my bases covered.’ In this podcast episode I explore Hebrews 1:4-14 and the things we do which undermine (even subconsciously) our belief in the sufficiency and supremacy of Jesus.
You can have courage for the battle when you have confidence in your leader. That’s what the book of Hebrews (and this sermon on the 1st 3 verses) does: provide clarity about Jesus.
Do you face hardship? Do you wonder if Jesus makes a difference? Ever think of turning back? These questions were forefront for the readers of Hebrews. This episode explores the first 3 verses and gets us thinking about timeless wisdom for life’s battles and having confidence in our Leader.
Reading the Bible is one thing. Understanding it is another. Study groups and sermons can help. But what about when you’re by yourself and feel confused? In this episode I share 5 principles that will help.
What is the difference between “the good life” and a great life? That’s what I explore in this sermon on Acts 20:13-38 and Paul’s farewell speech to the Ephesian elders. Yes, count your blessings; but count what truly counts.
What is the difference between “the good life” and a great life? Paul’s wisdom in his farewell speech to the Ephesians in Acts 20:13-38 give us the answer. What if we were to start living by the right priorities BEFORE we got to our death beds?
Do you ever feel strange because of your faith? What if (a) that wasn’t so bad, and (b) there was a purpose in it? This sermon on Acts 17:16-34 and Paul among the philosophers at Athens provides some answers and direction.
In this episode of The Pulse Podcast I explore Acts 17:16-34, an account of Paul’s time with the philosophers of Athens, being called “strange,” and friction about the resurrection.
