The Crazy Yellers
Many of us are a far cry from being a “crazy yeller”. And to be quite frank, we would like to keep it that way. But, every single one of us should present ourselves before the Lord and say, “Lord, take my tongue and speak through me—even if I need to appear a bit crazy to the onlooking world.” When the world threatens to cancel us, or worse, kill us—there is a human propensity to self-protect, to hide in a closet, to shut our trap, and to bury our testimony in the catacombs of rationalization. But, example after example is supplied in Scripture for the construct of the “crazy yeller”—the man or the woman that is God’s workmanship, available to God to do whatever God requests, to speak whatever God needs spoken, at the very moment God needs it to be done. Would we be willing to be built after the pattern of the “crazy yeller"?
The Sway of They
They. We all know of the concept of “they” even though we often struggle to ever pin down who exactly “they” is. But, this we know: “They” is a powerful force at work in our world to counsel us, direct us, and intimidate us into heeding the code of cultural normalcy. It’s embarrassing to admit how successful “they” has been in this past decade in steering the Church of Jesus Christ. Especially since, there is a “They” that IS supposed to lead the Church of Jesus Christ—just not the one currently at the helm. It’s a divine “They” with a capital “T”—the triune God Himself. Let’s make sure we are following the “They” God created us to heed.
Remaking the Boxer
Boxing and Christianity have a lot of similarities. They both demand similar strengths, similar perseverance, similar durability, and similar toughness. Both activities (boxing and Christianity) demand that you perform your challenging task with utmost precision while simultaneously being clobbered in the face. They are both extremely difficult. In fact, both are highly dangerous and even deadly. And both of the modern renditions of these sports are mere shadows of what they once were. The quality levels of both seem to have greatly deteriorated over the past thirty years. So, If the Christian life were likened to the art of boxing, it’s time to remake the boxer and rediscover the sweet science of boxing greatness.
Not Just a Little
Whether we ever speak it out loud, we tend to mutter inwardly to ourselves as believers about the all-out commitment our Savior demands of us. "Why so much?” We ponder. "Why can’t He just accept my pittance? Why must He require everything of me?" But, such inward questions only expose the frailty of our human perspective and uncover the deep lack in our spiritual fervor. For, against all logic, we genuinely think He’s asking too much of us. When in actuality, if there anything is too extravagant in the Gospel, it’s what He is freely giving to us.
At the Cave's Mouth
Faith seems so reasonable when you are sitting in a chair in your Bible school class. In light of Who God is, what God has done, and what He has promised—it’s totally logical to exclaim, “I trust Him! He can do anything!” But, it’s a bit more difficult when you find yourself at the edge of the Red Sea, in the Valley of Elah with a giant boasting, or, as this message explains—at the tomb of a brother who died and was buried four days earlier. Martha’s struggles in the eleventh chapter of John are a beautiful portrayal of how Jesus ever-so-gently cares for us when our faith trembles before the impossible task. He is faithful . . . always faithful.
The Evil Speedboats
The Devil is very good at what he does. He is amazing at the art of compromising the Christian. And yet, as good as our enemy is at seducing and sabotaging us, God is even more skilled at making Christians overcomes. If we allow our God’s Truth to be our guide, victory is assured over the snazzy speedboats of the Devil.
By utilizing Biblical passages, Eric Ludy exposes Christian apathy and convicts us to follow Christ. I would recommend this podcast to every person who claims Christianity. It shows what true christians are supposed to live like.
I've been listening to this guy on and off but recently I've been just immersed with the messages he has been throwing out lately! I know they are guiding by truth as he hasn't really changed his messages. They all relate to how we should be behaving as Christians in this modern world. In a world that is rejecting this idea of Christianity. Eric Ludy is very optimistic and I aspire to be like him! Thank you!
Eric Lucy is an arrow pointing others to Christ
The solid biblical truth and the passion to unite and shake-awake the modern American church is something that is sorely lacking in leaders today. It is encouraging to realize there are a few faithful people who are willing to sound to the world as foolish, to be wise in the sight of God. Eric teaches Jesus’ truth and allows God to use him in so many different, deep ways, and he wants us to do the same. I have been blessed and inspired with the teaching I’ve had, and would highly recommend this podcast to all those who profess Christianity. And if you don’t like what’s being said, examine your heart to make sure there is not sin in your life because he is on point and in tune with the Holy Spirit from all that I’ve heard.
