Restoring Grace (Chasing Freedom 6:5)

There’s nothing like ending a study on some grace.

Let’s do just that. Grace is an abstract concept.

More grace sounds just like what we need in this New Life of Freedom. Grace pouring in from a Savior who pours out.

How do we bring grace into our homes?

How do we bring grace into our families?

How do we end conversations with grace?

How do we end each day with grace?

Paul teaches the Galatians and he teaches us well. Galatians 6:18 reads:

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.

Freedom means all the grace, welling up, running over. Freedom in not holding out expectations, not holding in hurt and bitterness, letting God work where darkness once held us captive.

Let’s talk grace in today’s podcast, lots and lots of grace.

Someone gave something up for your freedom (Chasing Freedom)

We really want everything to be OK.

We want to use a thumbs up emoji for life itself.

Good to go!

We want to look around us at our family and friends and say good to go there to.

As we grow in our faith and understanding, our eyes open a bit further though and good to go just isn’t happening for the most part.

We look inside of us and around us and we see struggle. We see addiction. We see loneliness, fear, and heartache. We see other religions, different ways of finding meaning, and calls to action that open lots of questions we never knew we had:

What about abortion?

What about sexual identity?

What about Buddhism, Islam, or all those other -isms?

Is Heaven the real deal, and perhaps the bottom line- is Hell?

Good to go is good for most days, but we crave more. We want to know more, seek more, and understand more.

God gives us answers in the Bible, it’s Truth written out with blood stained ink by the prophets and early Apostles of the Church.

People died for this Truth. But people die for other truths, so which truth is actually…well…Truth?

In today’s podcast we’ll examine Truth with a capital T and it’s connection to sacrifice. We’ll wrestle with tough questions with no easy answers and one easy answer all at the same time.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Freedom to walk loved (Chasing Freedom 5:5)

What does it mean to be good at something?

A good worker

A good musician

A good student

A good mom

A good anything

What does “good” even mean?

Peace, joy, patience, kindness, aren’t all these good? You betcha. But the way we define them and and see them working in our lives may be quite a bit different than the world.

On this week’s podcast, let’s talk about “good” and the good fruits that God works in us. We’ll widen our perspective of fruits and callings, while sticking to the Truth of Scripture.
