    Standing With a Terrorist at the Foot of the Cross

    Standing With a Terrorist at the Foot of the Cross

    Let’s imagine a scenario. You and me, together we are standing at the foot of the cross. Jesus is there before us, hanging on the cross and says, “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.” You realize that he’s talking about you. You let the grace of God wash over you. You feel the forgiveness that you don’t deserve. Suddenly you look around and your worst enemy, the one who has hurt you the most, is standing there in the crowd too. 
     
    Now, how does that feel? 
     
    Do you remember where you were on 911? We were having our weekly Tuesday morning prayer meeting an hour before the first plane hit the World Trade Center. A lady came to that meeting with the urgent request that we pray for the nation. So we did. But the planes still hit the towers, and thousands of people were still killed. Why would God have us pray for a nation about to endure suffering without the intention to intervene? Why does God let suffering happen at all? What purpose does it serve? 
     
    The freedom he has given humanity is a testimony to something deeper than the pleasure or pain of our humanity. There is a oneness in the Spirit we must learn to participate in by being intentional about loving one another and fulfilling the mandate of Christ.

    Grace Can Save Your Life, If You Let Him

    Grace Can Save Your Life, If You Let Him

    In the United States, the suicide rate increased 25.4% from 1999 to 2016. In 2018, there were an estimated 1.4 million suicide attempts and more than 48,000 deaths by suicide  If this isn’t alarming to you, check your conscience and realize that there is an evil spirit roaming the earth that doesn’t want any of us to live. 
     
    This episode features two stories of redemption. One is a young lady we’ll call Em, who grew up as a Pastor’s daughter, and yet found herself in at the edge of suicide. The other is Lacey Sturm, a rockstar from the band, Flyleaf. At the age of 16, she found herself in the same valley. Their stories, while terrifying on many levels, will encourage your heart and empower your faith to break the spirit of suicide wherever you find it. 
     
    If you have young people in your world, this hour could mean the difference between life and death, knowing what to look for, and learning how to respond when the warning sirens go off. I believe God wants to equip you to be an ambassador of grace who can walk someone out of the valley of the shadow of death. Oh, by the way, about the title of this podcast? Grace is a person and his name is Jesus.

    The Voice of God and the Village Idiot

    The Voice of God and the Village Idiot

    You might have heard the phrase that seems to be everywhere these days that says, “Facts don’t care about your feelings.” It can make you think that our perspective of facts is the highest form of knowledge available. But if Jeremiah has anything to add it might be the revelation that God’s truth doesn’t care about our facts. So when communicating the heart of God, you will find yourself confronting both human feelings and human facts. We learn this in a growing process that often carries with it, growing pains. In a quest for the Kingdom of God, embracing the process of transformation is a non-negotiable necessity that produces a beautiful understanding of Kingdom reality. That you are loved and known, not for what you’ve done, but for who you are.

    When God Gives You Reasons to Not Believe

    When God Gives You Reasons to Not Believe

    Have you ever noticed that God doesn’t seem to care about his reputation? To maintain his reputation it would require that God controls the narrative, and yet he has placed a disturbing amount of the story in our hands. This week’s podcast explores the uncomfortable realization that we’ve been given a beautiful and terrifying level of freedom. Does squandering that freedom mean that God hates you? Find out as we continue to explore the story of the reckless grace of God.

    Off the Rails - When Your Kids Go Their Own Way

    Off the Rails - When Your Kids Go Their Own Way

    How can you have experiences with God, walk in powerful supernatural gifts, and know the Bible, and yet still deconstruct everything you once believed? In a raw, honest, and edgy interview with my son, who walked away from his Christian faith, I take the posture of a listener to ask questions and explore the journey from a conservative Christian home all the way to the edge of atheism and back. The point of this podcast wasn’t to argue or debate with my son publicly, but to demonstrate that no matter what journey they are on, you can still have a deep and loving relationship with your children without compromising your convictions. Love truly does cover...

Reckless (and I LOVE it)

Challenging. 🤔 Inspiring. 🤩 Hysterical! 😂
The Reckless Grace Podcast is Bill at his best. Subscribe and settle into the scandal of God’s reckless grace. (If it doesn’t tweak your theology, you’re not doing it right.)
