Triggered!!!

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, we have come to a defining moment in Early Church History—one precious period of time, two events of staggering significance—of which you and I are the direct beneficiaries.

This will explain so much, and put so much into its proper perspective.

Divine Intervention

Thank you for joining me once again in the cozy confines of my garage. Before we get into this week’s PODCAST, I wanted you to hear my heart. A heart that is overflowing with deep feelings of compassion and understanding.

It’s been a difficult week, to say the least. As I talk to you now, Atlanta is burning. The latest hotspot to erupt in the wake of the volcanic racial tensions that are seething in our country.

Covid-19 infections are spiking in several states this week, including my great state of Oregon.

People are suffering. People are scared. People feel uncertain. Insecure. Confused. Conflicted. Including many followers of Jesus.

Just this morning I received another one, a private message from someone confessing to me that they are struggling in their faith. Barely holding on.

I am hearing more and more of this the longer this societal craziness continues.

So if you’ll permit me, for this week’s podcast I want to share with you a message that I gave at a High School Camp last summer. One in which I tell my story of losing my faith, only to get it back—this through what was undeniably Divine Intervention.

Though my specific circumstances may differ from those of others who are similarly struggling in their faith—or perhaps have sadly, like me, lost their faith completely—the overarching message is equally applicable.

As I thought about it, this message serves as the perfect counterbalance to last week’s podcast. There I shared about how God directly intervened to save my life physically from a condition that could have, a perhaps should have, killed my body. For this week, how God directly intervened to save my life spiritually from a condition that killed my soul.

Mine is a story of hope that emerges from a time of despair. I offer it to you, humbly, in the hope that if you or someone you love is struggling in his or her faith, you and they might find the spiritual strength to take another step and to live another day.

“To Keep on Growing.”

In this PODCAST, you will hear the parting words of a dying man.

Peter’s last will and testament, in his own words, are as applicable today—to your life and mine—as the day Peter wrote them. Perhaps even more so.

If Only It Was That Easy…

Oh, my friends, you are in for an intellectual and spiritual treat, a veritable banquet table of biblical truth.

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, THIS is where I live.

I rather suspect, if I may be so presumptuous, that this is where you live as well.

Get ready for a massive amount of encouragement, courtesy of our old friend, Peter.

All courtesy of Peter, of course.

To Dream the Impossible Dream (HT #becauseofRHE)

As you will hear in the PODCAST, I do have a dream.

A modest dream. Yet modest though it may be, an increasingly illusive-if-not-impossible dream.

Won’t you please help my dream to come true?

Ironically, your response to this message will either nudge my dream to its fulfillment, or cast my dream upon the ash heap of impossible dreams. (No pressure!)

A futile night of fishing…

A breakfast on a beach…

A cringeworthy conversation…

Changed EVERYTHING.

A Man From Whom We Can Learn a Lot

May I share with you an observation?

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, the observation is this: The precision of Bible is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

A precision that goes down to the level of its individual words and phrases.

Case in point—The. Precise. Phrase that Peter used here in 1 Peter 2:11 to describe us as committed followers of Jesus. Peter wrote,

“You are foreigners and strangers on this earth.”

As you will hear, a most remarkable statement, the ramifications of which are wide-reaching, the depths of which we will only begin to plumb in this message.

God bless you richly as you listen.
