    Best of Series: Randy Alcorn on the Reality of Heaven and Happiness

    How real is heaven to you? Even as believers, is heaven just a concept that we read or study in the Word rather than a real, ultimate destination? We read about joy and hope God infuses within us towards, not only heaven, but also to carry us through the ups and downs of this life. Do we truly LIVE this reality out for others to see? Pastor Brian Brodersen considers such truths in a discussion with author, Randy Alcorn. Having written over fifty books, pastored a church at one time and now directing the non-profit, Eternal Perspective Ministries, Randy shares the need to remember that true happiness and hope in heaven is a real thing that matters.

    On this "Best Of" episode, Dr. Paul Tripp and Pastor Brian Brodersen discuss that no one is ever a “grace graduate.” So often those in pastoral ministry experience graceless living because they can "Improperly equate biblical knowledge, theological ability and success in ministry as spiritual maturity.” We hope you are encouraged by this episode.

Excellent

I used to attend Calvary Costa Mesa and must state and reiterate that I LOVE Pastor Chuck. I learned about the love of Jesus and the bible from his teaching verse-by-verse, but I am beyond thrilled with where Brian (and Cheryl) seem to be going with CCCM. I especially like his interview most recently with Lee Strobels son (shame on me for not remembering his name!!) but its another transformative, biblical discussion and I am looking forward to more of the same.

Wonderful interview

Good to hear Rick put sensible words to the craziness out there. Hear say and rumors. Love the few words needed to answer what our purpose is. To show Jesus in our words and actions..

Q&A

I love how it feels like I'm on the sidelines of a great conversation, all the while, so many relevant questions are being answered in such a way that anyone could understand. May God continue to bless this ministry!
