The Magnitude of God’s Grace in Your Life [Podcast]

1 Chronicles 17

Have you ever felt like a failure? You are not alone! In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at the great King David, a man after God’s own heart—and a man who failed. How in the world did he retain his position after such awful failure?

It’s an important question, because the answer tells us how we maintain our close walk with the Lord after we fail in our Christian lives.

The Incredible Blessing of Fences [Podcast]

2 Kings 21-22

Sometimes it feels like God has us fenced in. He surrounds us with rules or hard circumstances, and the only way to move forward, it seems, is to hop the fence.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we look at the lives of Manasseh and Josiah. They remind us that the Bible isn’t a museum piece or decoration for our home coffee tables. God gave us his Word and preserved it throughout the centuries so that His truth can help our lives. This episode tells us how.

How to Find Hope for Tomorrow [Podcast]

Leviticus 23:9-14

This Easter week, often called the Passion Week, we need a fresh reminder from God’s Word that we have hope for tomorrow—and why. In this episode of Live the Bible, we continue from last week and look in particular at the Feast of First Fruits. It has a principle that points to the resurrection of Jesus, which is God’s proof positive of the forgiveness of our sins when we have faith in His Son (Rom. 4:25).

I pray you have a wonderful Easter and you are encouraged in a time of worship and celebration of the historical, literal, resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ.

He is risen!

How God’s Feasts Apply to You [Podcast]

Leviticus 23:4-8

In these days of worldwide fear, anxiety, and downright panic, we need to hear from God in clear terms. Timeless truths that matter—today. This episode of Live the Bible focuses on Easter from a perspective you may not have heard before.

We will be looking at some of the biblical feasts as they relate to us as Christians—especially in light of the resurrection. The Passover is full of practical truth for us as Christians. Not the least of which is the challenge that we remove the smallest grain of compromise from our lives. We don’t do it in order to be saved or to earn God’s favor, but we do it because we already have his favor given to us through Faith and his son, Jesus Christ. I think you’ll be amazed at how practical this portion of the Bible can be.

During this special Easter season, I am inviting you to join me on a virtual tour of the Passion Week of Jesus. In a series of 3 FREE videos, I walk you through the final week of Christ day by day in Jerusalem. But most importantly, we will see what difference these can make in our lives. Watch the first episode right now at passionweektour.com.

How God Uses Your Ordinary Days [Podcast]

Selections from 1 Samuel 17

Ever wonder how to make it through the blah days of the week? In this episode of Live the Bible, we head to the Elah Valley in Israel where David fights Goliath. It’s much more than an exciting story. Why? It gives us encouragement that are ordinary days are not ordinary to God.
