E52 – Which sin would you rather commit?

Have you ever found yourself facing a decision and not knowing which way is right and which way is wrong?  Each choice has the potential for obedience and each choice has the potential for sin.

I recently was faced with a similar problem. For me, the final thing that helped me make my decision was the question in the title of this post.  Which sin would I rather commit… or rather which sin would I want to avoid the most?

E51 – Flunking Matthew twenty-five 101

Have you ever flunked Matthew twenty-five 101? I’m not even talking about the advanced class. I’m talking about 101.  Dave and I have flunked it a few times.  I actually don’t think you can really pass it until you have flunked it a few times.

In this episode we discuss some of the challenges of living out this scripture is intentionally.  One of those challenges is escaping our middle class insulation from the poor.

Last week, Kris talked about how he takes people from his church down to minister to the homeless in Oklahoma City in order to help them grow and disciple them.  Today’s podcast ties in perfectly to what Kris shared.

E50 – Do you want Sunday School or do you want the truth? -Kris Ewbank

How do you disciple your future son-in-law while he is in a drug rehab program before he has even met your daughter?  How do you welcome someone coming out of jail and drugs into your house?  Listen to Kris share about the way his church actively brings people into ministry to others, and then listen to his story of how he met and begin discipling a man who would one day become his son-in-law.

You can hear Stephen‘s story on Episode 49.  You can hear Brook‘s story on Episode 48.

This is Kris’ story. His story is more than just how he discipled his future son-in-law. In this story you will hear about how following Jesus permeates his life. You’ll hear about how his church helps pull people into hands on ministry, about ministry to the homeless in OKC, God using them in Liberia, and much more.

This is Kris’s story.

E49 – God’s Redemption of Stephen Harney

This is the story of God’s redemption of Stephen Harney.  From meth addict with his life falling apart to solid follower of Jesus, listen in to how God used a jail guard and a Bible to begin Stephen’s surrender to Jesus.  Then hear the story of how God used a man named Kris to help Stephen grow spiritually and then get back on his feet.  And, in only the way God can write a story God used Kris to introduce Stephen to the love of his life, Brook. (who was featured on our last episode.)

E48 – 85% of the church in 1 on 1 discipleship – Brook Harney

Can you imagine 85% of your church being in one on one discipleship?  That means it is way more than just the staff discipling.  Listen in and see what you can learn.

A new look

We are having some issues with our old website theme or “look.” Please bear with us as we experiment with some new ones.

E47 – Memorize Scripture better

Towards better scripture memory.  In this podcast we will talk about a simple system for sustainable scripture memory. Then we will talk about a neuro-scientific method that helps you commit scripture to memory faster and better.

For the system you will need some some kind of card.  I use the ones from the Navigators. You can buy them on Amazon or from www.navpress.com.

Here is a sample of the neuro-scientific method explained in the podcast. This example would be for memorizing Romans 14:1-4.

“Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.  One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.  The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.  Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.”

To help memorize this I would write out the road map letters like this.

“A t o w f i w, w q o d m. O p f a t t e a, b a, w f i w, e o v. T o w e e m n t w c t o w d n, a t o w d n e e m n j t o w d, f G h a t. W a y t j s e s? T t o m, s s o f. A t w s, f t L i a t m t s.”

E46 – Case Study – Disciple A – BBQ and a canary farm

A continuing case study on how to disciple someone.

E45 – Two Rotten Plumbers

What can I compare making disciples to? Making disciples is like two rotten plumbers…

E44 – Seeking Political Solutions to Spiritual Problems

Last week was the State of the Union address, with all of the political wrangling and turmoil around it. That is pretty normal. However, I want to respond to a troubling trend I am seeing in our American churches right now.  The problem is we are seeking political solutions to spiritual problems. You can’t legislate change in people’s hearts.  Only Jesus can change a heart.
