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.

Great Lessons from a Bad Example [Podcast]

2 Peter 2:10-22

Memorize these three words: Direction—not speed. We need to remember those words when we get discouraged about how slowly we seem to progress in our spiritual lives.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at our culture (and ourselves) right in the face. Sometimes looking at bad examples makes us feel better about our lives in comparison, but sometimes these bad examples look a lot like our lives. When that occurs, we shouldn’t be discouraged. We should let the conviction help us turn a corner.

The Apostle Peter shows us that the goal of our spiritual lives is direction—not speed.

The Good, the Bad, and the Almighty [Podcast]

2 Peter 2:1-10

It’s a question we have to consider. What are we going to do with our sin? We all have it—and all the good deeds in the world can’t erase the fact that we’ve done bad.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at our culture (and ourselves) right in the face—as we see what the Bible has to say about 3 people: the good, the bad, and the Almighty.

But the bad news is only the first step to the good news. And it’s really good!

Three Reminders that Matter [Podcast]

2 Peter 1:12-21

Reminders are important . . . I need them. We all do. That’s why God’s Word reminds us often of what matters. In this episode of Live the Bible, the Apostle Peter writes about 3 reminders that matter.

Our source of truth (and what it means) comes from God’s Word, and not from ourselves.

These 3 reminders are critical for our walk with God this year—and this day.

Genesis 32:24-30; 46:1-4; Numbers 13:25-14:4

Can you even imagine what the next year will be like? After all, no one could have predicted the year we just came through. Pretend for a moment you could send scouts into your future who would report back to you all the difficulties you would face in the next year.

Would you want to move forward?

In this episode of Live the Bible, we see this is exactly what happened in the book of Numbers. God sent scouts into your future—and the report has come back.
