Paul's Letter at the End of His Life
"For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing."
These are the works of Paul in 2 Timothy 4, when Paul was nearing the end of his life. In this broadcast Mike works his way through 2 Timothy 4, which is relevant to our times of today. Topics include our need to make our lives count for eternity, the great falling away, not allowing the culture of entertainment to distract us, and the need for God's strength.
Prostitution and Sex Trafficking in Germany, Part 2
Jennifer Fesefeldt with Kainos E.V., a ministry in Germany that rescues and ministers to prostitutes and those who have been sex trafficked there, calls in from Germany in this second of two interviews with her.
With legalized prostitution, Germany is also sometimes referred to as the bordello of Europe. Germany has an estimated 400,000 prostitutes that are visited by 1.2 million men a day. There are more than 3000 brothels across the country, 500 in Berlin alone.
Jennifer talks of the need to cut off the demand for prostitution, pornography, and sex trafficking by getting to the root problem - those who purchase and use them. She shares how some prostitutes are nervous about going to church for fear of meeting their customers, and the need for the church to address these issues boldly.

How to Rebuild Trust in Marriage
Tim Peterson, a counselor who leads the men's ministry at Blazing Grace, returns to discuss how a couple whose marriage has been traumatized by sexual sin can rebuild and heal. The pain the wife goes through, the husband's struggle to heal, communication issues, fear, control, and more are discussed.
Blazing grace doesn’t hold back and cuts to the core of the issues relating to the church, and sexual healing. I love their biblically based view on healing, repentance, and the salt of the church
