LISTEN NOW!


Do you Know Which Debt the God of Love is Most Concerned About?

  Greg, Pat and Steve talk about a perspective of love that has been quite neglected in today’s society. Currently, there a lot of things being done for God; people are prophesying, they are doing endless works, but apart from love, it is the sounds of clanging gong. 1 Corinthians 13 gives an insightful perspective of how God sees how love should be and how we should display it to others. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

  There are some that have literally kept a record of everything their spouse had done wrong, written down in a book. Love does not bring up the list of others’ wrong when someone brings up our wrongs. Love has no list of wrongs. God is love. This is a powerful statement. When we choose to love others amidst such difficulty and hardships, not only are we loving them, but we are “God”ing them. It is only through God that we are truly able to love others. Today is the day that we can make the decision to choose to love God until He returns, or until the day He calls us home, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: love, hope, accounts, debt, and forgiveness.

How Do You Know Whose Team You’re On?
 
   Greg, Pat and Steve talk about the importance of being on the right side, God’s side, and most importantly, staying on the right side. Many can understand the visuals of football and the importance of specific jerseys for the individual teams. At any time, the quarterback, the one in control, needs to know who he can throw the ball to; he needs to know whose are his. “Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”- 2 Timothy 2:19.  It is important that we live our lives in the awareness of God, for the acceptance of God, and not simply the acceptance of others. When we choose to live in such a way to be a friend of God, and not a friend of the world, there are those who are friends with the world who will not want to be friends with us anymore. Just simply proclaiming to be on God’s team and not leaving the team of the world does not work. If we want to turn to God, we must turn away from wickedness. Find out how you know the differences of these two realities, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: quarterbacks, fruit, good trees, bad trees, Nazareth, and repentance. 

Has the Identity of Betty Crocker been Revealed? Pat? Humor

   Steve, John and Pat have a humorous moment as Steve shares about a recent encounter with Pat and what he learned. How surprised would you be if you worked alongside Clark Kent and never knew that he was Superman? With recent events taken into consideration, Steve comes to the conclusion that Pat may be, just may truly be Betty Crocker. Enjoy this hilarious moment as they share about their weekend, past moments, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: baked beans, measuring cups, recipes, protein bars, and humor.

Imprisoned American Pastor in Iran- Two Year Anniversary – It’s Time for him to be Released: Please continue to Pray

   John, Pat and Steve continue the conversation about the persecuted church in light of the events that Pastor Saeed Abedini is still in the Iranian Prison for his faith in Jesus Christ. Currently, he is approaching 2 years in captivity. Lead Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow, has maintained a continual push keeping the plight of Pastor Saeed known, court rooms, in Washington D.C. and the United States. The website petitioning for his release, SaveSaeed.com now has over 287, 000 signatures. It is important for us to empathize and carry the burden for Pastor Saeed and his family during these difficult realities. Find out more of the details regarding Pastor Saeed’s condition, how you can respond, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: persecuted church, ACLJ, congressman, governors, and prayer.

Watch Francis Chan: God did not Call Us to Play Safe

   John, Pat and Steve have an insightful conversation as they share about a recent video from Francis Chan and his demonstration of a Christian living a safe life. Sometimes, trying to balance everything that comes upon us when we are walking with the Lord, it can cause us to look down and simply hold on for safety only to find ourselves at the end of the balance beam standing before the Judge. We were not meant to be safe or be boring. You don’t have to go bungee jumping or sky diving if you want an adventure, just follow Jesus! There are dangers of living a safe life with a “form of godliness”. We were called to be sons and daughters of God. We can wake up each and every day with the expectation of miracles and awesome testimonies of the Good News of Jesus Christ. There are no crowns for safety. Enjoy this encouraging and insightful moment as you see the difference of living for safety and living for adventure in Christ, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: Francis Chan, balance beam, fear, boldness, evangelism, safety, The Judgment Seat of Christ, the Joy of the Lord, and life.
