[RadCast] Mark 4:35-41 – The Time Jesus Slept Through the Storm

The water is making its way into the boat, the wind is howling, the waves are overwhelming, and Jesus is zzzzzzzzz. Notice that He didn’t stop the storm, He only gets involved when invited, and He’s amazed that we get so worked up. Jesus shows us how to be at total peace when — not if — the storm rises up.

[RadCast] The never ending “fad” of the new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Remember Pogs? Beanie Babies? It’s a movement, a craze, a fad that people hear about, get into, and usually cast aside. The Kingdom of God is similar… sorta. The best part? We’re all a work in progress, a renovation in the works.

[RadCast] Jesus meets us in mystery but shapes us relationally (Mark 4:33-35)

It seems that Jesus loves a good parable. Parables make us think spiritually by relating the Kingdom of God to something familiar. Yet He does not leave us in the mystery. He speaks to our souls and “explains everything.” We read/hear the Word as we listen to Jesus (the Word made flesh).

[RadCast] What is Jesus teaching you today? (Mark 4:30-32)

Jesus isn’t an informant — He’s a teacher and a transformer. We have no shortage of information (google it) but we are short on transformation. Jesus speaks in parables so that we’ll think differently, see differently, and become more aware of how the Holy Spirit is at work. He’s building a Kingdom — let’s join Him in this!

[RadCast] We make it our goal to please him (2 Cor 5:6-10)

Of COURSE we feel out of place as followers of Jesus. Until we are home with the Lord, we make it our aim to please Him. Every moment, every decision, every action counts. What can we do that most brings glory to the grace, truth, and hope of Jesus? That’s how we’re supposed to be.

[RadCast] – Some Trust in Instinct/Skill set, But We… (Psalm 20)

God has given a share of responsibility to each of us. Today, God gives victory to those who know Him, seek Him, trust Him. Live today like that.  Includes that fantastic youth group song that you might have heard in a big tent, perhaps played by your youth pastor.

[RadCast] The Flow of the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39)

I’m fascinated by the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christ follower. One friend remarked: “we know God has a white beard and Jesus has a brown beard… but the Holy Spirit… does He even have a beard?” It may sound sacrilegious to consider such a question, but it reveals our common misunderstanding of the mystery of the Holy Trinity. I get it — I don’t get it — I have it — I desire more. Know what I mean?¬†
