    The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

    The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

    The Life-Altering Parables of Jesus - Part 11 | In this episode, Gary Wilkerson and Joshua West discuss the parable of the pharisee and the tax collector. They emphasize the need for humility and repentance before God, rather than self-righteousness. The tax collector, who humbled himself, went home justified before God. However, they caution against remaining in a state of defeat as a Christian. Rather, we should walk in the joy, peace and victory that comes from finding our identity in Christ's righteousness alone. This requires both a renewing of our mind with God's truth and allowing God's love to transform our hearts.

    Cultivating a Heart for the Nations

    Cultivating a Heart for the Nations

    Navigating the Path to the Unreached - Part 5 | Gary Wilkerson and Mark Renfroe address the common question, "I'm just one person, what can I do when it comes to missions?” They outline practical steps for Christians to cultivate a heart for the nations and get involved in reaching the unreached. These steps include praying intentionally for the nations, growing in knowledge about global missions, engaging with people from different cultures in our own communities, going on short-term missions trips, and partnering with indigenous missions organizations. Gary and Mark also discuss the importance of a kingdom-centered approach to missions, rooted in Christ's lordship and the goal of God's glory among the nations. They challenge listeners to overcome the mentality of individual insignificance and to take steps, both big and small, toward participating in God's global mission.

    Navigating the Path to the Unreached - Part 4 | In this thought-provoking episode, Gary Wilkerson and Mark Renfroe dive deeper into the stark reality of the unreached world.

Mark shares a powerful parable contrasting the spiritual risk of lostness with and without gospel access. The discussion also highlights the surprising growth of Iran's underground church, from spiritual apathy to openness, despite intense persecution. Gary and Mark challenge listeners to evaluate their missions priorities and consider how they can play a part in reaching the unreached.

Wish I could give this more stars

I'm in my mid-30s and had been frustrated with trying to be normal as a Christian. I grew up in church and have been walking with the Lord the best I could but somewhere I picked up ideas that says I had to be a certain way. These episodes really cleared up some thinking in my mind and theres a few that I had to listen to over and over. I'm thankful for this podcast and hope there continues to be more episodes. Theres content that I don't think I'd hear anywhere else
