With a passionate heart for Christian discipleship, the majesty and centrality of Jesus Christ, and the life-changing power of the Gospel, the Daily Thunder podcast is a daily teaching series from the Bible to exhort, equip, and encourage Christians down the Narrow Way of the Cross. Taught by Eric Ludy, Nathan Johnson, and other guests – now you can have a little of the Ellerslie Discipleship boom, grit, and oomph thundering daily in your earbuds.
1096: Always the Same // Eric and Nathan’s Life Lessons 16
God is always the same … and that is a very good thing. In this final episode of the Life Lessons series, Eric and Nathan discuss God’s primary attribute: His constancy and “always” nature. Because God never changes, we can put our full trust, hope, and faith in Him—this truth becomes a bedrock for the soul and radically changes how we live.
1095: LIFE in the Word // Life in the Word 12 (Nathan Johnson)
The goal of discipleship and spiritual growth is full maturity and conformity to Christ—to be Christlike and walk in godliness and holiness in everything we think, say, and do. While this is an impossible standard to live in our own abilities, it IS possible through the empowerment of God’s Spirit within us. As believers, we are called to continually and intentionally live in the Living Word (Jesus) and the Written Word (Scripture). As we conclude this series on “Life in the Word,” Nathan exhorts us to do just that: live (abide) in the Word.
1094: The Blackstone Hotel // Life and Leadership Lessons from Teddy Roosevelt 12 (Eric Ludy)
In this twelfth and final episode in Eric’s series on Teddy Roosevelt, he unpacks the moving story of Roosevelt’s and Taft’s providential encounter in the Blackstone Hotel in 1918. There is a Blackstone Hotel in each of our lives—the question is whether or not we choose to capitalize upon it.
1093: Preaching to Your Soul // Eric and Nathan’s Life Lessons 15
Christians never graduate from the basic foundations of the faith … and as such, we need to exhort our souls and preach truth to ourselves. In this life lesson, Eric and Nathan discuss why preaching to your own soul is important for the days in which we live, and give a couple of examples for how to do so.
1092: How to Abide in the Word // Life in the Word 11 (Nathan Johnson)
Christians are called to abide and abound in Christ … but what does it mean to practically abide in Christ and how do we do it? In this study, Nathan not only examines what Scripture says about abiding and the evidence that you are abiding in Christ, but he also gives three practical ways to deepen your abiding relationship with Jesus right now.
1091: The Fracture // Life and Leadership Lessons from Teddy Roosevelt 11 (Eric Ludy)
In this eleventh episode in Eric’s series on Teddy Roosevelt, he shares the anatomy of the breakup of two wonderful friends. How can two men (Roosevelt and Taft) that have shared so much ideologically in common and have loved and cherished one another’s friendship for so long, suddenly let it all go? The same question can be asked of the Church today. When two are intended to walk together, it is a grievous thing to see them walk apart.
This is by far my favorite podcast, it is so packed full of truth and totally motivates me to live more boldly for Jesus! I love how Eric and Nathen create these awesome series that they walk us through, this podcast has helped me so much in my Christian walk. Thank you for all you do! Keep booming out the truth of God’s word!
Amazing meaty Christian podcast
Rich, excellent content! Daily Thunder is Bible-saturated, Jesus- centered, soul-igniting; and presented in a clear, digestible manner. I would highly recommend it! They produce more content than I’m able to keep up with, but everything I’ve heard has been a bracing wind for my soul. Thank you so much! Keep proclaiming, keep fighting, keep discipling, keep rejoicing! Jesus is worthy!!!
God’s word preached daily
This is a vital nutritional tool in the spiritual sense, for my life. I have listened for almost a year now, and have only about 100 more to listen to... I love how they are smaller yet in depth devotional that are easy to listen to on a daily basis. I love the boldness and conviction the biblical truths are delivered with.
