Midweek Discussion for 'What Happens Next'
In this final, official midweek discussion of 'Season 1' of the Moments with Jesus Podcast, Eugene and Christian discuss Pentecost!
They talk about how amazing prayer truly is, now that the Son has ascended and sits at the Father's right hand. They cover the significance of the 'tongues of flame' that rested on the gathered disciples. And they talk about what it's like to live with the same kind of wild inner life that Jesus had!
Through the discussion, they weigh the pros and cons of liturgy, how to shake yourself out of spiritual monotony, and what it looks like to walk in a moment-by-moment attentiveness to the Spirit's guidance.
Make sure you listen through to the end to find out what's next for the Moments with Jesus Project!
What Happens Next
Encounter Jesus Through His Spirit!
from Acts 2:1-4
Imagine you’ve only just left that hilltop – only just finished seeing Jesus disappear into the clouds – and now you’re back in the room you’d left from, earlier. This is the very same room where He’d washed all your feet, from which He’d gone to the Garden of Gethsemane; this is the room where you’ve been meeting since He rose from the dead. Your heart and mind are overwhelmed – astounded! – by His ascending up to Heaven; you fall into a chair and simply stare across the room. Your eyes slowly move across the table-top in front of you until – look at that! – you notice His cloak, lying right there. His best one. His favorite. You pick it up and sit back in your chair again. You hold the cloak to your face. It smells like Him…
Midweek Discussion for 'Into the Clouds'
In this Midweek Discussion, Eugene and Christian talk through Jesus' ascension found in Acts 1:4-11. They cover the difference between this passage and Matthew 28:16-20, and whether "the Great Commission" is really as important as it is often taught.
They also discuss the 40 days Jesus spent with the disciples following His resurrection, and the bitter-sweet feelings the disciples must have had as they said 'goodbye' to their Friend.
We read in Matthew 28:16 that, despite seeing the resurrected Jesus in the flesh, some disciples still doubted. What does this mean for us? How ought we to handle our doubts?
Finally, they discuss the significance of Jesus' ascension in His human form and what that means for our lives every day.
Up Into the Clouds
Encounter Jesus at His Ascension
from Acts 1:4-11
Imagine the loveliest day for having a picnic. It’s the sort of day where light, fluffy clouds cruise the blue skies; where the sun is just so perfectly warm, not too hot. You are sitting on the brow of a hill, looking back toward the city, and you’re resting on a soft comfortable blanket. You’re surrounded by all your best and closest friends. Across the picnic blanket, you still can’t quite believe that Jesus is with you, that He’s been amongst you for these forty days now. Far happier than the bird’s song, the joy of your own little life, is this glorious wonder that Jesus is alive!
Midweek Discussion for 'A Walk and A Shock'
In this episode, Eugene and Christian talk about the encounter with Jesus on the Road to Emmaus. On their journey, they cover a lot of ground: Jesus' mischievous nature, the importance of welcoming Him into our conversations, and the significance of breaking bread together.
They also address some super-tough questions including: how does genocide in the Old Testament jive with Jesus as He is revealed in the New Testament?
A Walk and a Shock
Encounter Jesus on the Road to Emmaus!
from Luke 24:13-33a
Imagine walking along a straight, narrow, dusty road in the country, having a chat with one of your best friends. You have been deep in thought all afternoon – all day, in fact – and you’re deep in thought about the same things your friend is speaking of. “I just don’t understand,” he is saying to you. “I’ve always trusted Mary’s judgment before. And now it seems as if John is believing it too…"
Love to encounter Jesus this way
The kids and I love the first person perspective. Thank you!
My 4yr old’s FAVORITE
My daughter requests this show daily. She adores the story telling and always has compelling and curious questions afterwards. We are so grateful for Eugene’s work and passion to open our imaginations to understand Jesus more. Can’t wait for the book!
What a great way to start my day with my kiddos! I love them! Keep them coming!!
