Are you strong? Are you capable? Can you "do all things"? Well, you had better be sure of your source. In this episode, I discuss how our inadequacy is actually our best asset.
I was recently asked, "Joel, what is the Kingdom of God and how do we actually 'build' it?" Today, I give a simple 2-fold response off the top of my head. We'll be looking into this in much greater detail soon, but this is an overview.
Although my intention was to record some light-hearted commentary on several somewhat comical thoughts, I ended up going pretty serious pretty fast. In this episode I land primarily on the weighty responsibility of godly parenting.
I recently heard the phrase "hybrid worship" in regards to how we as people often juggle worshiping Yahweh with worshiping other gods. This topic came up on a recent drive so I wanted to share some thoughts on the matter.
So... how do you like being wrong? Or even possibly considering that anything you might believe might be off. I think we could all work on having a better response. This I believe, would ultimately lead us to discovering, and walking in, more truth.
If there's a biblical quality and ability that is seemingly one of the most elusive, it's patience. Our patience deficiency is much more than just a cultural issue of our day, it's a human disorder. It's my hope in this episode to challenge us all to give ourselves to become a people established in patience.
(Again, please remember I have a backlog of recordings to get online.) This episode was recorded the same day as the news of the Notre Dame fire broke. Within the event, I believe, are some spiritual applications that I think are worth discussing.
Due to travelling, I have a severe backlog of recorded files that I'm likely just going to have to sort through and throw out here. This podcast covers a multitude of things, including how the will of man is demonstrated in a child, hot wheels.... and gifting plastic flowers. Enjoy.
