    The Fear behind Closed Doors

    The Fear behind Closed Doors

    After the Crucifixion, the disciples shut themselves up in the Upper Room, in fear of their lives. Jesus came among them and said, “Peace be with you.” As we experience fear and uncertainty these few weeks, we ultimately must realize that everything will be OK if we put ourselves in God’s hands.

    Examination of Conscience for Fathers

    Examination of Conscience for Fathers

    Jeff is talking with Matthew James Christoff about how men must go deeper in confession to overcome the temptations they face everyday. They go over seven questions fathers can ask themselves in an examination of conscience before they enter the confessional. These questions are directly related to the seven attacks Satan makes on the family.


    Snippet from the Show
    “If you don’t have an explicit commitment with your bride to ascend in holiness together, disunity starts there.”

    Into the Night: Lent, Confession, and Transformation

    Jeff guides you deeper into your heart and conscience than you’ve ever gone before. In your next confession, don’t repeat your usual “sin checklist” to the priest. Instead, fully expose your heart to Jesus and allow him to bring hope, healing, and peace in a way that profoundly transforms you.

    Would It Have Been Fun to Be Jesus?

    Would It Have Been Fun to Be Jesus?

    Jesus could heal people, walk on water, control the weather, multiply food, make wine, walk through walls, and wake the dead. Having such incredible abilities sounds amazing, but would it have been fun to be Jesus?


    Though there were moments of happiness and fun, the purpose of Jesus’ ministry was to tell people to repent and return to the Father, and many, including his own disciples, rejected and denied him. He knew that this would happen, but did not use his power to stop it.


    The things most worth pursuing in life (marriage, raising kids, having a deep spiritual life, etc.) are never going to be fun all the time, because love isn’t just fun and warm fuzzy feelings.


    The goal of life isn’t to have as much fun as possible before we die, it’s to live a life like Jesus, one that is centered on the love of God.


    Snippet from the Show
    “Our goal in relationships is not fun. It’s love.”
