Episode 24 | Relying on God's Word with Andrea Thom
This season at Compel, we have been remembering why we share the Gospel story. What motivates us to share Christ with the world? We have looked at how His love compels us and how knowing God’s purpose motivates us. Today we are going to be answering the question, “Is God’s Word really the source of truth? Can we trust it?” Andrea Thom, a Canadian author and Bible teacher, shares how we know the Bible is reliable and trustworthy, and briefly on how we got the Bible. We hope you find this conversation as encouraging as we did!Scripture:2 Peter 1:21Psalms 119:3Psalm 119:89Resources:Andrea Thom's websiteMichelle's blog series on "Is the Bible Really True?"Amos: Come Awake! by Andrea ThomRuth: Redeeming the Darkness by Andrea ThomPrecept Ministries Canada Charles Simeon TrustQuotes:"Any time we invest in the Word is never ever wasted time." -- MichelleConnect with Andrea:WebsiteSubscribe on iTunes | Stitcher | or on our Episodes page Follow us on Instagram | FacebookShare with others, leave a review Connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Episode 23 | Driven by Our Purpose with Lindsay Campbell
This fall we are taking some time to zoom out and talk about the “why” behind missions. What motivates us to spread the Gospel story? Last week we talked about how the love of Christ compels us to action. If you missed that episode, I encourage you to go back and listen. It’s a foundational episode for this series. This week we are talking with Lindsay Campbell from Word of Life Bible Institute about purpose. What did God save us for? What is God’s purpose? And, subsequently, what is our purpose?Scripture:John 17:32 Corinthians 5:14-17Jeremiah 21 Timothy 6:7Luke 19:10Resources:Word of Life Bible Institute in Owen Sound, Ontario, CanadaA Gospel Primer for Christians: Learning to See the Glories of God's Love by Milton VincentGoodSeed websiteBy This Name by John Cross, also available at Amazon | Ethnos CanadaThe Lamb by John Cross, also available at Amazon | Ethnos CanadaFieldnotes: Stories of the Gospel Transforming LivesWomen of the Word by Jen WilkinQuotes:"The only safe obsession is God.

It’s been so encouraging to hear how ordinary women have been involved in mission work around the world. I’ve learned so much!!
Well worth the listen!
This podcast gives such a great glimpse into evangelical missions. Lauren and Lesley do a wonderful job of showing how women are currently involved with what God is doing in the world and encouraging other women to be a part of it as well.
