When we think of our daily experience as Christians, what motivates us to refrain from sin? Are you afraid of possibly losing your salvation or eternal rewards? How we view the gospel and the promises of the New Kingdom will directly change how our experience will be in this world. Jon walks you through 1 Peter 1, looking at how Peter uses the hope of the gospel as our motivation to obey instead of fear and guilt.
Our homes are not as safe as we treat them. We often leave our guard down, assuming the world’s message has no place in our hearts and homes. If we are not actively taking measures to protect our families and homes, Satan’s influence is slowly making his way into our minds and hearts. This is a hard conversation, but a necessary one where we learn to live by grace fighting the temptation to believe the lies of the world.
Ever wonder why you keep falling into the same traps of sin over and over again? We don’t just sit there and take it, we try new methods. Yet those methods only bring new problems with them. That’s because unknowingly, we have prioritized the world’s message methods instead of Christ and his Kingdom. The world sells us on its success and we believe the lie embracing its form of discipline to accomplish the goal. There is a battle for our hearts and minds, its time we allow God’s grace to bring us back to shaping our priorities in life.
When 1 John 1:9 calls us to confess our sins, how often can we confess the same sin? Why do we so often feel the need to cleanse ourselves before coming before God? What does boldness mean when Hebrews say to run to him? How is Jesus our sympathetic high priest? Jon helps the listener think biblically about their sin and how God cleanses our conscience to enjoy his love and rest.
Feel like giving up? Anxiety, depression, and failure can cause believers to feel like they are drowning under the waves of darkness. Alone doesn’t even describe the empty space you live in. Separated from God? More like, does God even care I am suffering? Jon helps the listener find their way back to the power of the gospel. Grace and mercy are more than theological words. They are the way weak and discouraged Christians breathe. We pray that you find joy and rest by the end of this episode.
How would you answer this question, “What is the mission of your life?” If you can’t answer that question within two seconds with excitement, you are living in the wrong reality. We often seek to fulfill our lives with this world and ignore the spiritual realm we are called to. We are in a war that can’t be seen with physical eyes, how do we tap into that world? How does the mission of the kingdom become the passion of our life? Jon helps you think through how the gospel and the kingdom brings exciting and meaning back to our lives in a dying world.
What is the point of obedience? There is a clear call to live a different lifestyle than the world, but to what end? In this episode, Jon walks through several scripture passages to point the listener to the motivation for their obedience, freeing slaves. We live in a world as exiles of another world left here to share the light of the kingdom. Our King uses our actions to draw those enslaved in sin to himself. We may not be able to share the gospel daily with our neighbors and co-workers, but we can love them as Christ loved us and be ready to give them hope in our life when they ask. We seek to glorify our God and set people free using love. The Kingdom is the point of our obedience.
How do you wake up every morning and no matter your age, income, or physical capacity, and understand the eternal purpose of your day? Is the really joy in laying your life down? What weight has you distracted from experiencing the power of God’s mission in your life? Grace is our freedom, and yet we leave it on the shelf when we walk out the door each day. Why?
We give God credit for our Salvation, but when it comes to the progress and purpose of our life, we tend to rely on our own strength and wisdom. Until we are willing to see ourselves as God sees us, we will never truly understand the power of God’s word and his church in our lives.
According to Christ, our King, we’re supposed to be “living for the Kingdom.” What does that mean? Is our goal just to not sin? Or is it something much greater than that? Will we be able to bring about the progress of God’s Kingdom on earth? Will we see it coming? In this episode of the Kingsmen Podcast, Jon delves into what Jesus meant when he describes our role within the Kingdom of God.
No battle plan will lead to disaster. In this episode, Jon discusses the pursuits of men that are good and noble, but can become a distraction for us and lead us to disaster. Are we pursuing things that are good? Why are we constantly disappointed even when pursuing these good things? Should we be pinning our hope in the success of our pursuits?
Men often value things like wealth, status, body shape, and strength, but are these the things men should be focusing on? Should we be placing our identity in these things? In this episode of the Kingsmen Podcast, Jon discusses the importance of understanding our own weaknesses and short comings, and how an identity firmly planted in Christ can bring about rest within a Christian man’s battle with self-worth.
