Father & Son: A Son's Observation. Ep. 13
As a child what observations did you make from your parents? Whether present or absent we all made observations. We'll talk about that and look at Christ Jesus to see how he also observed the Heavenly Father.  Main Scripture: John 5:19-20 - Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.  Into & Outro beats provided by S.Rock: https://www.facebook.com/srock15/

Father & Son: Something Missing! Ep. 12
Growing as a father by learning to be a son. This episode we deal with what has been missing in many people's lives, a relationship with their father. How do we respond to something we've been deprived of? What can we gather from God's Word an impart in our lives to help change the course of fatherlessness?  Main Scripture: Mark 1:9-11 - In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11 and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” Into & Outro beats provided by S.Rock: https://www.facebook.com/srock15/

Working with Effort! Ep. 11
It's already a battle to be diligent in the work we do. We hear so many times to give our best effort, but that's easier said that done!  What does the Bible have to say about this!? Main Scripture: Colossians 3:22-24 - Servants, in everything obey those who are your masters on earth, not only with external service, as those who merely please people, but with sincerity of heart because of your fear of the Lord. 23 Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve. Into & Outro beats provided by S.Rock: https://www.facebook.com/srock15/

R E C O N C I L I A T I O N! Ep. 10
What does it mean to be a minister of reconciliation? How do we carry the message of reconciliation? What does this even look like? Main Scripture - 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. Into & Outro beats provided by S.Rock: https://www.facebook.com/srock15/
