Just Pray.

July 1, 2020

What is prayer? How can I be sure I’m doing it right? And why don't I want to at times?

Many of us have learned some unbiblical things about prayer, and we've developed some ungodly attitudes toward prayer. Michelle and Amy discuss why it is that many of us struggle with our prayer life.

What Do We Do with the Guilt of Generational Sin?

What Do We Do with the Guilt of Generational Sin?

June 24, 2020

Does God punish us for the sins of our ancestors? Should we repent of sins our parents or grandparents committed even if we had nothing to do with those wrongdoings? Those questions are coming up lately as many people grapple with the idea that people of a lighter skin tone must repent of racism against people with a darker skin tone. The headlines from the visible church -- the ones that follow the social gospel anyway -- tell us that racism is a generational sin we must repent of.

Amy and Michelle discuss what the Bible has to say about generational sin with special guest Beth Seifert. Beth is a wife, mom, home school teacher and women's ministry teacher, as well as the author of many Bible studies at Naomi's Table.

Hold on loosely: God is in control

Hold on loosely: God is in control

June 17, 2020

When we look at what has happened in our world just in the past several months, and how quickly things have spiraled out of control, it’s so important to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ to stay the course and remember Who actually is in control. Amy and Michelle discuss how control is something that is not only imaginary, it is something we can easily idolize.

Walking Worthy With A Light Yoke: Part 2

Walking Worthy With A Light Yoke: Part 2

June 2, 2020

On this episode, we are diving right back into part two of our discussion on Walking Worthy with a Light Yoke.
Jesus said in Matthew chapter 11, "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Last week we began going through Scripture to talk about all the things Jesus commanded, and yet His commands are not difficult or complex.

Walking Worthy With A Light Yoke: Part 1

May 26, 2020

We always say at the end of every episode, "Walk Worthy." Today’s topic is one that should bring comfort and conviction about how to do that in a way that honors Christ.  In John 14:15, Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” So what did Jesus command? He wasn’t talking about keeping the Old Testament Law, nor was He telling us we need to have a works-based salvation to get into Heaven, but as an act of obedience, love, and reverence for our Savior.

Don’t get trapped in conspiracy theories!

Don’t get trapped in conspiracy theories!

May 20, 2020

Long before whispers of covert COVID operations, conspiracy theories have been rampant - and rabid. Should we as Christians spend time looking into the Illuminati, secret societies or symbols and codes in music and movies, or buying into the flat earth theory? What about vaccines and doomsday prophecies? What about 5-G towers and injections that might maybe be the Mark of the Beast? Amy and Michelle look at conspiracies through the lens of Truth.

What are Essentials and Non Essentials?

What are Essentials and Non Essentials?

May 5, 2020

When it comes to doctrine, what are essentials and what are the non-essentials, or secondary issues? When Christians speak about essentials, what they’re talking about is the fundamentals of our faith, and what we believe about God that makes us His own. These are the doctrines which you, biblically, have to believe in order to become a Christian and/or be considered a Christian. So what are some issues over which Christians can disagree and still maintain close doctrinal fellowship?

How Does the Holy Spirit Lead Us?

How Does the Holy Spirit Lead Us?

April 28, 2020

Sometimes when we say the Bible is sufficient to guide our lives, the question arises, “What about the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit? How does that fit in with the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture?” There are so many theories and teachings about this third person of the Trinity that it's no wonder so many people are confused about who the Spirit is, and what He actually does, and does not do.

If you're not quite sure what it means to be lead by the Spirit, this podcast episode will clear things up - thanks to what the Scripture teaches about the Holy Spirit.

Church was never meant to be remote: Reuniting after COVID-19

April 21, 2020

Right now the vast majority of us are having to watch worship services online. And even though many of us miss fellowshiping with our brothers and sisters, we can get a little too used to the routine of sleeping a little later and plopping down on the couch with a good cup of coffee to watch church. We might even be tempted, once quarantine is over, to keep “going to church online.” Michelle and Amy discuss the importance of faithfully fellowshiping with the Body again once this is all over.
