"The life is in the blood." Chad and Daniel spend a bunch of time discussing this crucial verse. What does it say about the physicality of redemption and atonement, the gift nature of blood itself and why does location matter? They then move on and begin discussing the rules for sexual engagement and why they were given. It's an interesting episode. Have a listen!
Over the weekend we held a City Event in Minot, North Dakota at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. It was an incredible day of teaching, singing and fellowship. We are so grateful for all who came out. We will be releasing the content over the next few weeks but in the meantime here is a photo recap of the event.
The Apostle's pray for boldness to keep preaching. The people of the church are selling property and giving the proceeds to the church. One couple plots to lie to God and His response is swift. Healing is happening all over the place and the church continues to grow. Daniel and Erick discuss it all. Have a listen!
Few smells are as pervasive as the smell of smoke. Anyone who’s sat around a campfire can attest. The smell seeps into clothes, hair, and skin. It clings with an iron grip. Only a stronger, more potent smell can banish it.
There is a brief passage in Psalm 55:22 which reads: “Cast your burden upon Jehovah, and he will sustain you: he will never suffer the righteous to be moved.” Follow this advice. Let not your burden rest upon yourselves; for you cannot bear it, and must finally perish beneath its weight. But, confident and full of joy, cast it from you and throw it on God.
Jonah doesn't care about Israel's great enemy. He certainly doesn't want to be the first prophet in history to leave his own country and preach to a people who regularly attack, rob, rape, and enslave Jonah's family, friends, and neighbors. So far as Jonah is concerned, he'd rather drown in a watery abyss than show his face in Ninevah.
