“Fiery Trials”

This PODCAST will cause you to gather your loved ones a little closer to you, and to hug them a little tighter. Which is a good thing!

A remarkable story indeed, courtesy of our dear old friend, Peter.

And So Can We!!!

As you will read in the book of Hebrews, and hear on this PODCAST, “Jesus learned obedience from the things he suffered.”

Wait! What???

How could Jesus, who was always consistently obedience, learn obedience?

And what does that mean for us, in our lives, today? And every day?

Depressed, But Not Defeated; Downcast, But Not Destroyed

The picture that you are about to hear me paint in this PODCAST is my Single. Favorite. Scriptural. Snapshot of Jesus, second to none.

Courtesy of our old friend, Peter, who was onsite and who witnessed this up close and far too personal in real time as it happened.

I have a hunch that after hearing this, you will never think of Jesus in quite the same way again.

May my stuttering and stammering words be a blessing in your life.

One Yoke That IS Easy; One Burden That IS Light

You’re gonna love this!!! At least, I sure do.

As you will hear on this PODCAST, Jesus’s words, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light” freed me from YEARS of enormous guilt.

Think of this as Peter Puts on a Personal Evangelism Clinic, all in just two simple-yet-profound sentences.

Oh, and for good measure, at no extra charge, we will reduce all of Jesus’ teaching regarding our character as Christ-followers to one salient soundbite of but a lean-and-mean four, one-syllable words.

Trust me. You’re gonna LOVE this!

Slavery

What you are about to hear in this PODCAST is a masterful, masterful example of how two apostles—Peter and Paul—addressed a thorny issue that confronted the first generation of Christ-followers.

The issue of slavery.

Paul in particular will seize upon a teachable moment, presented to him by a runaway slave, and use this moment spectacularly to develop an entire New Testament theology of slavery. AND what it all has to do with us today when it comes to our own thorny social issues which threaten to divide us.

So Why are We So Surprised?

Paul wrote to the believers in Rome,

“Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould, but let God re-mould your minds from within, so that you may prove in practice that the plan of God for you is good, meets all his demands and moves towards the goal of true maturity” (Romans 12:2 JBP).

Never was the need for Paul’s plea more evident than in what you are about to hear here in this PODCAST.

“And Just When You Thought All Was Lost…”

“And just when you thought all was lost…”

As you will hear in this PODCAST, after his customary-yet-warm greeting, Peter could have begun his first foray into his rather short-lived, two-letter, dual-epistle-writing career with these words:

“And just when you thought all was lost…”

Because for Peter’s original readers, All.Was.Lost!

For these now-“scattered abroad exiles” had just been forcibly removed from their homes, had their lives permanently disrupted, and their families dramatically displaced.

Many-if-not-most of them were barely holding on, more surviving than thriving. Precious people precariously perched on the precipice of the abyss of uncertainty, just trying to make it through yet-another threatening day.

All of that to say that Peter could have begun this First Epistle of Peter with the words,

“And just when you thought all was lost…”

Because that was how they felt.

Just.Like.Some.of.Us.

Our challenges may not actually be as dire as theirs. But it sure feels that way some days, doesn’t it? Like we’re just barely hanging on? Like we’re more surviving than thriving? Like we’re maybe one step away from giving up?

“And just when you thought all was lost…”
