Why We Do All We Do [Podcast]

Book of Zachariah

Why do you do what you do? In this episode of Live the Bible, we take a look our habits and ask that very question. We all have habits, including ones for the spiritual things we do. And we follow them religiously. But WHY? And why does what we do matter to God—or does it?

The book of Zechariah gives us the answer.

How to Keep First Things First [Podcast]

Haggai 1

Could you list your top 3 priorities? Yep, me too. But how about when we try to actually live them? In this episode of Live the Bible, we see that Bible is not just a Sunday textbook.

And during the week, it’s not just devotional material to go with our morning coffee. No, the Bible is for our lives—and it directs our priorities. The problem of living our priorities is not a new one. The Prophet Haggai was dealing with the problem a long time ago. The people then are much like us. The solution still works.

No Shame On You [Podcast]

Zephaniah 3

Failure, shame, regret. Just pick one, and we’ve all experienced it. And we’d all like to forget it. This episode of Live the Bible is one you may want to listen to all alone. Why?

Because we’re going to talk about the subject of personal shame. Whether it’s shame because of something you’ve done, or shame because of something done to you, we all struggle with it. The Prophet Zephaniah gives us some much-needed encouragement when our consciences are working overtime to condemn us.

Clinging to the Hope of God’s Justice [Podcast]

Nahum 1

In this episode of Live the Bible, the book of Nahum agrees that we want people to get what they deserve. At the same time, of course, we want God’s grace in our lives.

All We Gain by Putting Pride Aside [Podcast]

Book of Obadiah

We gain a lot by putting one thing aside. What we guard as a stronghold of our hearts turns out to be one of our greatest weaknesses. In this episode of Live the Bible, we get back into our series where we take a lesson from each book of the Bible.

Up next is the shortest book of the Bible, the book of Obadiah. But it packs a whallop.

Are you ready for this?

What God is Waiting For [Podcast]

2 Peter 3:1-11

Why doesn’t Jesus just hurry up and come? Great question. In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at what is taking so long in God’s program. (If He came before April 15, that would be really great.)

We wait on God for a lot of things, don’t we? Today the Apostle Peter reminds us that, in truth, we are not waiting on God as much as God is waiting on us.
