I created this podcast to encourage believers to follow a perfect example with imperfect actions and results using the Bible as your guide. God had one superstar, Jesus, but as a follower of Jesus, I want to use my mistakes, stories, testimonies, and victories to help attack your doubts and fears by applying the Truth (and the Holy Spirit) to your life and situation. When you listen, you will learn perfection is not the goal, and it has never been. You are the hero of your story, and God wants you to dig into His Word to discover your gifts, strengths, and talents to become a doer of the Word.
God wants you to pick a side hot or cold for or against Him
213 In this episode, I continue to teach on the importance of being in the word of God and I show you God wants you to pick a side.
I use Revelation 3:14-22 where Jesus describes the lukewarm church and how He wishes they were hot or cold. He then says He will vomit you out of His mouth if you are lukewarm.
God is a good God and only wants good things for you and as a perfect Father, He knows you can't survive long if you live your life in the middle of the road.
Did Jesus promise life would be light and easy
212 In this episode, I get on my soapbox early and begin to encourage you to get into the word of God.
I use Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
I use a couple of verses in Proverbs and go back to Matthew 7:13,14 and end our lesson in Matthew 11:25-30 where Jesus says, "My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
Becoming a disciple means learning to abide in His word
211 In this episode, I teach you how to abide in God's word. The way I do it on this episode is I read to you all of Proverbs chapters 3 and 4.
Since I am blessed with "superior" reading skills this is an enjoyable lesson indeed. ;-)
In order to abide in God's word, the first lesson is read or listen to God's word.
The discipleship journey through life learning to abide in God's word
210 In this episode, I make a quick turn and begin to teach on the need to abide in God's word.
John 8:31, 32
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed in Him. "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."
You and I are deceived in any area in life where we do not have an intimate understanding or "knowing" of the truth.
The Kingdom of God seeing the end from the beginning-my obituary
209 In this episode, I teach how Father God sees the end from the beginning.
I use two of our favorite scriptures Proverbs 25:2 and Matthew 6:33 to make my point.
I then read the obituary I wrote about myself. This idea came from a mentor I have (online) Donald Miller in Business Made Simple where he teaches in order to give your life direction you need to point your life toward a final destination.
I am giving him credit for the idea but I'm going t use the idea to better ground you and me into God's word.
I created an easy one-page document in Google drive to get you started.
God's way of doing things, seeing the end from the beginning
208 In this episode, I continue to teach on the Kingdom of God and how one of God's attributes is seeing the end from the beginning.
Since none of us are going to get out of this life alive, wouldn't it be wise to point toward our final day with a specific purpose in mind?
I use Psalm 139 and Psalm 90 again as our scriptures and I also use King David's example in 2 Samuel 11.
Amazing content! And a great listen while driving down the road for a great message on the word for every Christian!
Great start to the day!
Such a good listen on the way to work! I love starting my day with No Doubt No Fear Only Believe Podcast!
Honest and clear. Gives me a different visual on the Bible
