When Jesus Misses Your Funeral [Podcast]

John 11

Do you ever feel like God is kicking you when you’re down? Whatever our situation is, we want Him to intervene. It would be SO easy for Him to step in and change what we can’t—and yet, He doesn’t.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the book of John where two people pled with Jesus to come and heal their brother—but Jesus showed up too late.

What happened next in their story reveals the hope we need today.

Our choice.

I’m talking about Psalm 1—and in this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning there for some clear direction on how to walk the road that leads to the life you want.

Unwrapping One of God’s Greatest Gifts to You [Podcast]

Ruth 4

When’s the last time you received a gift that you didn’t open? Probably never! We can’t wait to unwrap gifts that our loved ones have picked out just for us.

In today’s episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to Ruth chapter 4 to finally unwrap that special gift God has for us.

Where We Begin Again with God [Podcast]

Selections from Revelation

What book of the Bible most intimidates you? For a long time, my answer was Revelation. But when I finally studied Revelation the way you’re supposed to study any book of the Bible—interpreting Scripture with Scripture—it quickly became one of my favorites!

Revelation not only reveals what wonderful things lie ahead for those who believe in Christ, it also calls us to action here and now in a practical way. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re exploring both.

I can’t wait to share the surprisingly simple application with you.

Your Walk with God is Worth Fighting For [Podcast]

Book of Jude

You’re a contender. Or at least Scripture says you should be. And so should I. Jude starts his letter of the New Testament urging us to “contend earnestly” for the faith. Why? Because our walks with God are worth fighting for.

In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re digging into Jude’s letter to find out two key steps we can apply today.

Book of 3 John

Who in your life has set a bad example? Perhaps you had a parent who disciplined out of anger. Or a pastor who wielded his Bible like a club. Or a boss who abused his or her power. It’s easy to dismiss such lousy leadership as incompetency. But Scripture says we can learn a lot from a bad example!

In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the book of 3 John to find out what those lessons are. They’re helpful ones we can all use—and apply—right away.

Revelation 20-22

Ever wonder what heaven will be like? This episode of Live the Bible will tell us. Movies, best-selling books, and paintings have too often (mis)shaped our ideas of heaven. But God’s Word, in the book of Revelation, tells us the facts about what’s waiting for us when we die.

The truth about the hereafter holds the hope we need for here and now.
