What God Says about Marriage [Podcast]

Mark 10:1-12

If we ask 10 different people on the street (or in the church) God’s view on marriage, we’ll likely get 11 different answers. Thankfully, the Word of God gives us an anchor that keeps us from groping in a sea of opinions.

In this episode of Live the Bible, Jesus tells us what God says about marriage and divorce. Living with our eyes open means we guide our lives from the light of God’s Word before anything else. That’s true in every area of life.

Once we know what God’s Word says, the true challenge becomes following it.

What’s Your Motive? [Podcast]

Mark 9:30-50

Trying to figure out someone’s reasons for what they do is tough business.

Often we think we know, but more often, we’re guessing. Trying to figure out our own motives isn’t much easier.

Of course, as Christians, we want to do all we do for the glory of God. That’s great. But our walk with God can come to a standstill when (in truth) we chase our own interests in the name of Jesus.

In this episode of the podcast, Live the Bible, Jesus teaches His disciples (and us) that our Christian life is not about personal ambition, but it’s about something far more satisfying.

What’s for Now, What’s for Later [Podcast]

Mark 8:34-9:13

Have you seen the carrot and stick routine? It’s how you get a mule to keep moving by dangling a carrot two inches from his face. Always moving but never getting there. Sounds like us sometimes, doesn’t it?

We chase our dream of what we’d like life to be (now), but it so often never comes. Why is that?

In this episode of Live the Bible, Jesus helps His disciples make sense of what they’re chasing. He gives them a literal mountaintop experience to remind them what’s for now and what’s for later. We need that same reminder right where we are today.

How to Avoid the Dangers of Hypocrisy [Podcast]

The Best Way to Live Your Impossible Life [Podcast]

Mark 6:30-56

Your Christian life isn’t hard. It’s impossible. So impossible, in fact, you cannot do it on your own. But that’s okay. In this episode of the Live the Bible podcast, we see Jesus gave His disciples some impossible commands, and then taught them (and us) how to do them with His help.

One of the miracles Jesus performs is the only miracle included in all four gospels, except for the resurrection. Its application for us is that important.

God’s greatest work in your life is not what He does through you— but what He does in you.

How to Hear from God Today [Podcast]

Mark 6:1-29

God’s grace makes it safe to see ourselves as we really are. Why? Because we know that regardless of what we see, God will never reject us. This helps us listen to God. But how?

In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re going to discover how to hear from God. But honestly, it’s not about the source as much as it is about how we choose to listen.

When You Need to Borrow a Miracle [Podcast]

Mark 5

It’s easy to wonder why God seems to work in everybody else’s life, but yours. After all, when we listen to the answered prayers of others, or after we hear someone share their good news, it’s easy to think, That’s great, but why doesn’t that happen in my life?

This episode of Live the Bible introduces us to three people who interacted with Christ, and one of them will speak directly to whatever you’re struggling with right now. Whatever it is you’re struggling with today, Jesus hasn’t forgotten you.

What God is Doing When Nothing is Happening [Podcast]

Mark 4:21-34

Let’s be honest, sometimes it seems like the wheels are coming off—both in the world and in our lives. What is God doing?

In this episode of Live the Bible, Jesus will tell us what God is doing when nothing is happening. Frankly, it’s great to know that if God plants potatoes, then potatoes will grow? (I explain that more in the podcast.)

God’s plan hasn’t skipped a beat in the world or in our lives.
