Bob Smiley Hope Through Laughter
As we kick off the Hope Through Laughter Series, and we seek to start 2021 on a hopeful, joyous note, I could think of no one else that I would want to share with you than the incredible Bob Smiley. As we talk on this interview, this is a man with two testimonies, in all actuality. About seven or so years ago, Bob hit a really hard patch. But, God. We talk about his initial journey to his faith and then how his faith carried him through that devastating time, and eventually got stronger through it, and how God is now redeeming that lost time. As we recorded, Bob and his wife Sarah were celebrating their second anniversary…of course, not the day of recording…as a man who is also married, I know that would be a HUGE no-no. But, Bob Smiley is a phenomenal comedian, a man with a pure heart, and a joy for so many he’s entertained through stand up, through his work with Focus on the Family with the Average Boy podcast and Average Boy books, and now through his podcast with his wife Sarah, Hook, Line, and Smiley. Enjoy this extremely funny comedian and great man of God here on the Gifts for Glory Podcast!

Yvette Walker is an award-winning journalist and educator. She is a writer, blogger and lyricist of Christian songs.

Dave Ebert Takes on Cuties
Many of us have heard about the controversy with Netflix and with the movie Cuties. I wanted to give my take this week. I believe that the hashtag #CancelNetflix is really important right now, as we pair it with the heart behind #SaveOurChildren. But, it's not far enough. Parents and everyone attached to the film should face prosecution for sexual exploitation of a minor, endangerment, and the promotion and distribution of child pornography. I also share some important Scripture related to this situation. We must protect our kids. And not just those who are biologically ours, but those God is entrusting us to care for and disciple.

Daves Message - Theology of the Thief
What can we learn from the Thief on the Cross? He's only referenced in a handful of Scriptures, but his story speaks volumes. Dave Ebert gives the message at Cross Point Church in Lockport, Ill. on this special edition of the Gifts for Glory Podcast. Sometimes Scripture requires us to take a look at it from a different angle to get more of what God has for us. Some important Scripture for today:Luke 23:39-43Matthew 27:41-44Ephesians 2:8-9James 2:14Romans 6:23Matthew 20:1-161 Samuel 16:7 NKJVRomans 10:9-10 NIVTHE POINTLook for new revelations within old, familiar storiesThe Thief speaks to us on more than Good Friday. He is our Brother in Christ.Grow your roots deep into God and His Word.This is not religion. This is relationship.__________________________________________________________________Would you consider being a patron?

Rob Decker Kingdom FIT
Rob Decker, founder of Kingdom F.I.T. (Faith In Training) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, has an incredible testimony. His life is one that should have ended many times, but God. His mother was told to abort him, but God. He lived a fast life of drugs and alcohol, but God. He was falsely accused of rape and felt his only way out was suicide, but God. He got into an accident driving under the influence, but God. But, God. Listen to this amazing story of ups and downs, the war within, and the hope that no matter how bad your story gets, there is always the change that your surrender to God’s perfect will will give you your own “But God” moment. Enjoy this testimony and story, and then find Rob Decker online and follow more of his story. At the time of his interview, Rob was expecting his second child and first little girl. We pray God’s blessings over Rob and his wife, their son, and their new baby coming in a couple weeks!

Go and Be Reconciled - Dave Ebert
This week’s podcast is a replay of Dave’s message given at his former church. This message, entitled “Go and be Reconciled,” is about the importance and the imperative of all believers to work to be reconciled with their brethren. Dave gets personal and transparent with a recent story from his life, and uses that to fuel his message and admonition to be reconciled. Our primary passage is 2 Corinthians 5:18 NIV - All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. Much of the teaching also comes from Matthew 5 and Matthew 18. __________________________________________________________________ Would you consider being a patron?

Most stories we hear of that day are the American perspective, Christian was led to produce this film to tell the liberation story from the point-of-view of those being liberated.
