HOSTS: Emily Trotter and John Fugh, Jr.

Joshua tells the people of Israel that they must choose this day whom they will serve (Joshua 24:14-15). As for Joshua and his house, they would choose to serve the Lord. What if this is the challenge that we give ourselves each day? What if each morning we deliberately and intentionally chose to serve the Lord? If we don’t choose, then something else will inevitably choose us.

God continues to pursue us because we are created in His image. This is an example of His grace. Unfortunately, our understanding of grace is a mile wide and an inch deep.

When Jesus is not on the stage and isn’t in front of a crowd, He is still ministering behind closed doors. What a model of how we are to live! Before Jesus speaks one word in the Upper Room, Jesus has to get His disciples’ attention.

Scripture: John 13:1-15

One of the characteristics of God that is absolutely mind-boggling is that He deliberately chooses to use His broken creation to be instruments of His grace and love where His Kingdom is declared and revealed. In this episode we take a look into the life of David when he wanted to build the Lord a Temple.

We’ve all had something we’ve asked God to take away from us. A difficult circumstance … a regret from the past … an unknown about tomorrow. Paul writes that it’s in these moments we are invited to embrace the sufficient grace of God and rely on the power of God. The message of the Gospel is that we are accepted and loved.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

In This Episode: We are taught as Easter people that our faith was never meant to be a game of solitaire. It was meant to change the way we live. Initiated by God’s love, our faith is built upon the foundation of the empty tomb. This is the Good News, and it was never meant to be private.

In This Episode: Something is emptying you … something is draining your tank. And whatever that may be, we try to redeem it on our own only to find ourselves grabbing at straws trying to fill ourselves back up. Christian maturation involves the purposeful and deliberate emptying of ourselves while giving God permission to fill us with His Holy Spirit.

Peter invites us to cast our cares onto God because He cares for us. But, when we cast our cares upon Him, do we leave them there? Can you believe that through all the trauma and struggle that God is still for you? Can you believe with confidence that He wants to create something new and fresh in you?

Scriptures: 1 Peter 5:7; Philippians 2:7
