Episode 174 is a special feature episode from another podcast I host -- the Wild Ox Podcast. You'll have to listen to appreciate the name! Pray with me. Could it be that the fruit of our prayer and fasting flourishes or wastes away by how we live concerning the poor, the oppressed and afflicted, the hungry, and the homeless stranger? The promised blessings for those who live in harmony with the God Ethic in Isaiah 58 are stunni...

Moving mountains in your world are related to something much greater than yourself. "Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low ... and the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together" (Isaiah 40 NIV). Ultimately, mountain moves in our lives are about the fame of the Lord and a Larger Story. What Jesus said about Mountain Moves is astonishing. (Part 1 of 2)

I welcome you into a growth process I think the Lord may be summoning me into. What do we do when our prayer and fasting about something seems to be fruitless? If I'm reading the words of the Lord in Isaiah 58 right, it may be that we have neglected the ethic of the Lord about the poor, widows, those in bondage, and more. The promised blessing of the Lord for those who get this right is astonishing. -- Brian

We are designed to be ambassadors for Christ, re-presenting Him well.

There's a condition to follow Jesus in this way: living with excellence in the various life domains. Are you up for this commissioning? There's good news. If you are, the Holy Spirit will g...

What if we could reclaim God’s design for sex ... and truly experience what sex is meant to be? Grace and truth from Jesus empower us to live in harmony with Higher Design. But is the Church losing the Creator's design for sexuality? And is the world out-discipling the Church about sex? Dr. Juli Slattery of Authentic Intimacy is with us in this recast episode.

God calls you into his freedom! And freedom is a gradient -- you can grow in it. Just upstream from freedom is truth. And that's a gradient too. The New Testament Greek word for truth also means reality. Did you know that when you're born again in Christ, you're born into a battle over what is real? Truth will increasingly protect you ... and release you into your potential.

There's nothing more priceless than the truth ... and freedom is downstream from truth. Look around -- progressivism is all the rage today. And it's not just political. It's leaking into parts of the Church too. What starts gradually as soft totalitarianism can evolve into terrifying tyranny. True justice is beautiful. But is Progressivism a delusion? Even more, is it a hellish counterfeit to the real future that Jesus ...

Everyone wants to "find their life" -- their best life. Jesus' offer is on the table: "If you lose your life for my sake, you will find it." To be real, few discover this. Matt Raines helps us in our quest. He draws on thoughts from Henri Nouwen, a Dutch Catholic priest, professor, writer, and theologian. We are CHOSEN by Christ, BLESSED, BROKEN, and GIVEN to the world. This narrow path leads to our best horizon...

We can cultivate all things (think Eden!), releasing hidden potential all around us. Capture Part 2 of my coffee-shop dialogue with Bruce Colbert. Are we willing to discover our real life in Christ's Kingdom Enterprise? And let's reconceive something -- Ekklesia (the Church) is for societal good. Not a "Churchianity." It's all wrapped up in the image of God in us! (Listen to Ep 158 for Part 1 of our dialogue.)

As Creator-King, God places his image in the earth in man and woman. Everyone has it as a baseline expression. And yet, in Christ, God's image goes to a higher level. This is heaven's secret sauce for influencing all things via us! Right here. Right now. The image of God is renewed in us through the Holy Spirit. The opportunity cost for negligence is way too high.

There comes a point when we need to talk about your secret advantage in Christ -- receiving and releasing supernatural sound. Developing in Christ is a continuum. Are you on the Christ Continuum? If so, the opportunity cost of failing to develop in supernatural sound is too high. Elevate to your privilege as daughters and sons of God in Christ! (Tight Godspeed episode!)

Here's a dialogue, a confabulation, a royal riff with J.C.L. Faltot! We are called to lives of influence ... salt, light, Kingdom leaven, all pointing to the coming Kingdom. And, yes, this includes political engagement. How do we think clearly and navigate this? Upstream from politics is culture, then worldview, and then belief systems. And upstream from it all ... the unseen spiritual domain.
