EVERYDAY GRACE PODCAST

The Point of Your Obedience

“The point of your obedience is to help your brother and sister grow in the love of Christ. That’s the point. The whole entire point. This is why he says to consider how to build one another up daily. So James writes a letter to scared, fighting, sin-sick, wandering Christians. And you know how he always brings them back? He grounds them in their faith, and he reminds them of the grace of God.”

Suffering, Then Glory

“For, I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comprehension, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen.”

You Will Never Be My Enemy Again

“You will never be considered my enemy again. You will live forever as my beloved child. I will provide you a new home and a new body, and I will always provide for you everything that you need.

Our Father

I find great hope in the fact that Jesus, in his model prayer, says to us, “Be cognizant of who you’re talking to: ‘Our Father’.” Now, for those of us who’ve been in Christianity, that’s not earth-shattering. When I said, “Our Father,” no one gasped, “How dare he!” But this was not a common practice amongst the Jews, especially of that day…

We Live Everyday in the Truth of God’s Word

Jon: We live daily in the truth of God’s word. And that is what shapes and governs our life. If someone finds hope and encouragement and desires to spend time in his word, engaging in it more in that way, they have every right, joy, and freedom to do so. And we would say, “Praise God for your time to be able to do that.”
