    Ep. 78 | He is Alive! How Will We Respond? | Story of the Gospel

    When Jesus resurrected from the dead, we see three different kind of responses. First, the women witness and declare, next we see Peter running to the tomb, and then we read about Thomas refusing to believe. This week mediate on these three responses and then consider your own tenderness to God's unexpected work in your life.

    Ep. 76 | Why Did Jesus Have to Die? | Story of the Gospel

    In this episode of the WellSoul Podcast, we delve into the question of why Jesus had to die. We start by reflecting on the story of the Garden of Eden and how sin entered the world through Adam and Eve's disobedience. We then explore various scriptures that shed light on the cost of sin and God's provision for forgiveness.

     Episode SynopsisWelcome to another episode of The WellSoul Podcast! In this episode, we delve into the different perspectives of Jesus as revealed by those who witnessed his ministry: a demon, a prophet, a disciple, and the religious.
    We begin by reflecting on what a demon said about Jesus in Mark 1:23-24. The possessed man in the synagogue cried out, acknowledging Jesus as the Holy One of God. This encounter reveals the power and authority that Jesus possessed, even over demonic forces.
    Next, we examine the perspective of the religious rulers in Matthew 9:32-34. After witnessing Jesus casting out a demon from a man who was unable to speak, the crowds were amazed. However, the Pharisees attributed Jesus' actions to the ruler of demons, refusing to acknowledge his true identity.
    Moving on, we explore what John the Baptist proclaimed about Jesus in John 1:29-34. John recognized Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He bore witness to the Spirit descending upon Jesus and affirmed him as the Son of God.
    Lastly, we consider Simon Peter's declaration in Matthew 16:13-16. When Jesus asked his disciples who people said he was, Peter boldly proclaimed him as the Christ, the Son of the living God. Peter's confession demonstrates the disciples' growing understanding of Jesus' true identity.
    Throughout these passages, we observe that the demons, John the Baptist, and Peter all recognized and declared Jesus' true nature. However, the religious rulers remained closed off to the truth, attributing Jesus' actions to demonic influence.
    As we reflect on these different perspectives, we are prompted to ask ourselves: Are we closed off to the truth of Jesus? Who do we say Jesus is? Our answer to this question has a profound impact on our lives and our relationship with God.
    In closing, we offer a prayer of worship and gratitude to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, acknowledging God's goodness in revealing Jesus to us. We invite listeners to download a free resource on how to have a devotional time, available in the show notes.
    If you enjoyed this episode, please consider supporting The WellSoul Podcast by buying us a cup of coffee. Your financial support helps us continue this ministry of encouraging others to know God's Word, walk with God, and live with purpose.
    We dedicate this episode to the memory of our late friend, Brian Vasquez, whose support made this podcast possible. May God bless you, and may you continue to seek and know Jesus for who he truly is.

    EP. 74 | The Gospels Pt. 2 | Story of the Gospel

    As Jesus ministered to people, he demonstrated his identity through his actions. In this week's podcast episode, we consider John the Baptist's question to Jesus and how sometimes we can't see God at work because we are blinded by our own expectations of how he should work.

    Is he at work in our lives right now and we are missing noticing?

    Isaiah Verses Quoted in Matthew by Jesus in response to John the Baptist's question. Excerpt taken from ESV Study Bible:

    Isaiah: the blind receive sight (cf. 9:27–31; Isa. 29:18; 35:5), the lame walk (Isa. 35:6; cf. Matt. 15:30–31), lepers are cured (Isa. 53:4; cf. Matt. 8:1–4), the deaf hear (Isa. 29:18–19; 35:5; cf. Mark 7:32–37), the dead are raised (Isa. 26:18–19; cf. Matt. 10:8; Luke 7:11–17; John 11:1–44), and the good news is preached to the poor (Isa. 61:1; cf. Matt. 5:3; Luke 14:13, 21). Jesus’ deeds gave sufficient proof of who he was and that the prophesied time of salvation had come (“the year of the Lord’s favor”; Isa. 61:1; cf. Isa. 62:1).

Good for my soul

The Well Soul podcast created space for me to breath and center myself on God and his word this week. I’m so thankful and look forward to the times I get to listen to this and be reminded of the presence and love of God each week.
