Short Encouraging Biblical Episodes

As a young adult in today’s culture, I am encouraged and eager to listen 3 times a week to APJ because they are great quick encouraging questions that are rooted in Biblical truth. John Piper amazingly goes deep in such a short podcast. It’s been a great resource that has blessed my friend group and we actively share this podcast amongst another! It has also been a huge factor in helping us find reformed doctrine and has blessed us abundantly in our faith.

Mt.6:24 ,

Jesus’ most neglected teachings...

More people & podcasts are talking these days about the things Jesus taught (in the 4 gospels), but there are a few of his teachings that almost never get serious coverage. Several references (EXCLUDING the “rich young ruler”) are made in Luke about selling all of one’s possessions & giving to the poor and then this teaching is shown to be taken seriously by the time we get to the book of Acts (end of chapters 2 & 4).

Another powerful & often neglected paradigm-changing (IF taken at face value) teaching of Jesus is found in Mt. 6:24; Lk. 16:13-14). This has been called the “Two Masters teaching”, one being God/Love and the other/opposite one being money.

What would Christianity look like, both inside its confines and to the world at large, if these teachings were given much more serious consideration and application?

Take a leap of faith and dive deep into these teachings! ✌🏼
