Pastor Lutzer shares his own story of experiencing God's providence in the ordinary throughout his life. Through his incredible testimony of God's faithfulness, you'll be encouraged to see God in the everyday moments of life, to seek Him, and to step confidently into the ways God intends to use you as His hands and feet right where you are.
In Pastor Lutzer's words: "When God sends revival, He does not bypass the church. He works through the church in brokenness and repentance to bring revival...It's going to happen through God's people."

How Scripture changes lives
God's providence through a parking space
Exposition: handling God's Word in context.

Grateful for this podcast
Michael Easley was my pastor when he and Cindy were at Immanuel Bible Church in Springfield, VA. His teaching and interview style are very clear and always interesting. Each podcast is full of information and insight while bringing a bit of humor and much food for thought.
Strongly Recommend “In Context”
I began listening to Michael Easley “In Context” upon a recommendation from a close friend. I thoroughly enjoy listening to Michael’s approach to life and his in depth explanation of the material. I have found his podcasts educational, enjoyable and enlightening. I strongly recommend his “Big Book” series and topical and or current event episodes.
Michael Easley In Context
Absolutely excellent podcast! I began listening several months ago to “The Big Book” series and was quickly hooked! Easley’s focus on understanding the truth of Scripture in its historical and literary context in order to correctly apply it to our lives today is refreshing. Be refreshed....in context!
