078: Encore Episode — Can You Believe That All Things Belong to You?

June 14, 2019

This is an Encore Episode (#006)! Can you believe this? Here's a Kingdom secret that few experience -- all things belong to you, as you belong to Christ. This is what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Church in Corinth. "All things belong to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God" (see 1 Corinthians 3 in the New Testament).

It's as we truly value and belong to Christ, that all things are ours!

049: We Are Raised Now as Vice-Regents in Christ’s Kingdom - Matt Raines

"[The Father] made us alive together with Christ ... and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 2:5-6).

In Christ, we die to ourselves as a False King. And we are raised as Vice-Regents in the Kingdom of God! A Grand Narrative is at play -- a marred Creation is moving toward the New Creation. The Father is putting all things right in Christ.

036: Pray-Vote-Stand with Brent Keilen, Director of FRCAction

October 21, 2018

I was at a massive pumpkin festival of all places when I sat down on a tour bus for a few minutes with Brent Keilen. He's the Director of FRCAction, the legislative affiliate of Family Research Council in Washington, DC. We discussed the vital significance of Christ-followers engaging the political space with consistent prayer, political participation, and standing strong for the values of faith, family, and freedom. It's more than the political space though -- we're called to be salt and light in education, arts and entertainment, and all arenas of influence. Will you embrace the call?
