Where We Begin with God [Podcast]

Genesis 3; 12:1-3

If the Bible tells us anything, it tells us that the evil you’ve experienced in your life—from family, friends, even from your own doing—God can spin that on its head to bring about a wonderful result if you’ll just trust Him.

This episode of Live the Bible takes us into a new year with a new series where we’ll take one message from each book of the Bible. First up? Genesis, of course, where we look at more than creation, the fall, and the flood, etc.

We’ll look at how Genesis relates to your life today.

Our Christmas Surprise: God’s Way Up is Down [Podcast]

Luke 2:1-20; Philippians 2:3-11

The humble birth of Jesus Christ reveals a truth that, frankly, is shocking. In fact, it’s as surprising today as it was in the day Mary gave birth to Jesus in a Bethlehem barn.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we take a special look at Christmas and its surprising truth. What truth? The pursuits of our lives and passions can easily get misplaced. Jesus shows us that the way up is down. The way to true greatness in the eyes of God is to be a servant to Him—and to others—just like Jesus was from the day He was born.

A Tomb with a View Towards You [Podcast]

Mark 15:40-16:8

One event, more than any other event, reminds us that personal failure does not remove us from God’s plan. In fact, this event shows us that the success of God’s plan does not depend on our performance.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at the essence of what makes Christianity true. Remove this, and we’re just another insignificant religion putting our hope in wishful thinking. But with this event, our faith is rooted in history. And it has huge implications for our lives— and even for our failures in life.

Living Well to the Very End [Podcast]

Mark 15:1-39

How can we Live our lives well to the very end? Especially when we are falsely accused, rejected by those closest to us, and perhaps even abandoned, betrayed, or denied. Turns out, all of these were true of Jesus — and yet He finished well. What a model is our Lord.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at Jesus’ example of living well to the very end. From the time Jesus was born in Bethlehem to the time of His death at Jerusalem, He was faithful to the end. Jesus committed Himself to the Father—even when questioning why His Father would allow what He did.

What to Do When You Remember Your Failure [Podcast]

Mark 14:53-72

What can you do when you remember your failure? You know what I mean. Something triggers a memory, and we have a flashback of a failure we did yesterday—or maybe even years ago.

In this episode of Live the Bible, Jesus Christ reminds us that those memories don’t have to haunt us. Instead they can become a memory of something far better than our failure—God’s grace. This is an episode so essential for us to hear again and again.

When Your Want-To is Willing, But Your Can-Do Is Weak, Part 2 [Podcast]

Mark 14:12-52

How can we be faithful and follow God, but we’re just not strong enough to do it? In this second part of our two-part episode of Live the Bible, where Jesus gives us the practical application of what to do when we want to obey God—but we’re not strong enough to do it.

This is where the rubber meets the road in our Christian lives. Jesus takes us to Gethsemane, and models how to rely on God for strength in moments of vulnerability.

The peace we long for in life lies on the other side of one decision we can make today.
