Keep Your Form ( LifeLift #6)

lifelift podcast Mar 03, 2020

The Pharisees asked Jesus an incredibly insightful question one day— insightful because of the answer He gave, not necessarily because of the question they asked. It happened shortly after Jesus called Matthew to follow Him. Recall, Matthew invited “many tax collectors and...

Jesus in the World (LifeLift #5)

lifelift podcast Feb 25, 2020

Over the past few talks I’ve suggested that...

  • Jesus shows us what the Father is really like (talk 1). Then, 
  • He reveals who we’re designed to be (talk 2). Third,
  • We've been “included” in Christ, so everything that happened to Him happened to us (talk 3).
  • ...

Your Resurrected Life (LifeLift #4)

lifelift podcast Feb 18, 2020

I want you to notice something— a piece of the Gospel story you may have missed. Once you see it, you’ll never miss it again, though. I promise.

Let’s talk about Jesus after the Resurrection…

Mary Magdalene, who loved Jesus dearly as He had rescued her from a previous...

Included in Christ (LifeLift #3)

lifelift podcast Feb 11, 2020

Last winter I binge-watched the Netflix documentary The Making of a Murderer. The premise of the true story documentary is that Steven Avery was wrongfully convicted of assault and attempted murder in 1985. He served 18 years of a 20-year sentence before being exonerated by DNA evidence. The...

Jesus Shows Us What We’re Really Like (LifeLift #2)

lifelift podcast Feb 04, 2020

A lot of Christians I know say that the disciple with whom they most identify is Peter. They talk about his failures, as well as how much they can relate to those short-comings. 

I get it. And I’m grateful that Scripture not only reveals its characters’ greatest exploits (like...

Jesus Reveals What God is Like (LifeLift #1)

lifelift podcast Jan 28, 2020

John opens His Gospel with a revolutionary idea: “No one has ever seen God,” he writes, “but the one and only Son, who is Himself God… has made Him known” (John 1:18 NIV). Even though people weren’t certain what the Father was like, Jesus revealed exactly who...

An Open Heaven (LifeLift Intro #2)

lifelift podcast Jan 21, 2020

My Dad and I have invested a lot of hours talking about this material with each other. We saw the principles work at Hilldale, and Dad watched the truths invoke life and freedom in churches across our region. The more we equip others to implement the things we’ve learned, the more we see....

The Back Story (to the next book + series) (LifeLift Intro #1)

lifelift podcast Jan 14, 2020

 

My Dad doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy who’s ever been jaded about anything. Nonetheless, after he left seminary he began asking a few tough questions. In a healthy way. Those questions got more real and urgent as he worked his way through a few pastorates at various...

Gold in the Broken Places (Claim Your Freedom #13)

 

I almost titled this talk something like, “What do you actually think restoration looks like?” 

I didn’t, because it seemed a bit punchy for such a soft subject. But, after you read the next few pages, I think you’ll understand that line from a place of...

Therapeuo for Emotional Health (Claim Your Freedom #12)

By now, you know my bias: I prop on Scripture and do my best to lean into the Spirit. No problem here if you don’t- we can disagree, still interact with each other, and learn a lot together. 

That said, let me show you something else from the Bible. This will apply to you, too,...
