    This World Is Not Your Home | Episode 54

    This World Is Not Your Home | Episode 54

    If you are a Kingdom driven man this world is not your home. In last week’s episode we talked about advancing and occupying the kingdom of God. Jesus stated that we are in the world, but we are not of the world.
    We each have an assignment to fulfill, and at the same time we are citizens of another kingdom. In this episode get equipped with an understanding of how the mandate to occupy intersects with our identity as Kingdom citizens. Learn the two identities Peter imparts to his listeners, plus I share a simple exercise on how to gauge your attachment to the things of the world.

    The Military Language of Jesus | Episode 53

    The Military Language of Jesus | Episode 53

    Many people think Jesus came to earth to only deliver a message of love. The fact is Jesus delivers a message of truth in love. Jesus will train up men to be leaders and issue a mandate to all of his disciples advance and occupy. Jesus imparted mission to his disciples and commissioned them into the battleground of their new life. Jesus uses language that carries a militarized context. In todays show we will examine what this means for us as modern day disciples.

A Podcast Necessary for the Christian Man Today

As I wrote in the title section of this review, this podcast is necessary for the Christian man today. I joined the Standard 59 last year and it’s transformed my view of manhood and what that entails from a Godly perspective. I was elated to see Josh K. put this podcast together! Powerful content that’s scripturally sound! What more can you ask for?

Katzzzzzzzzzz ,

Must listen for EVERY man!

Josh K and this podcast is the real deal! Listening to all the episodes stirred the greatness in me as a Kingdom man because of how Josh unpacks revelation of the standard we as men are called to live by. I highly recommend this podcast if you want to live in alignment and the standard God has called you to live in!
