225 – If you could ask Jesus a favor, what would it be?

If you had met Jesus 2,000 years ago
while as he was traveling around healing and ministering to people, what would you ask him for? A healing? Deliverance from a problem? The answer to a burning question in your heart?

Lots of people came up to Jesus to ask him for all sorts of things. Sometimes he granted their requests and sometimes he didn't.

There's so much to learn from these folks who approached Jesus with a request.

In this week's episode I talk about why Jesus answered some requests and why he didn't answer others. Here's who is in the show:

  • Jairus
  • Various religious leaders asking about how to obtain eternal life
  • A man who wanted Jesus to get his brother to share the inheritance
  • More religious leaders who wanted Jesus to show them a miraculous sign
  • People who weren't sure if Jesus was the Messiah
  • James and John, who wanted to sit next to him in heavenly glory
  • A disciple who asked Jesus how to pray
  • Philip, who wanted Jesus to show God to him

The  crux of the matter: what you want or what God wants

If you could talk to Jesus, would you ask for something you want really bad? Or would you ask him to show you what God's will is for you?

And how on earth do you figure out what God's is will for you? There are some helpful ideas to get you started, plus a previous episode I recommend (see below for link).

Who should you pray to, Jesus or the Father? Listen to find out...

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
