Do you like waiting? Me neither. No one does! We want what we want—or need—right now. But God often steers our lives at a slower pace. The question is: What do we do when God takes too long? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to Genesis 15 for practical lessons on waiting on God that we can use right now.…
 
If there’s one thing we all need, it’s assurance. We need it in all our relationships—at home, at work, and with God. That’s true for the brand-new Christian, and it’s true for our “heroes of the faith” like Abraham. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re continuing Abraham’s story in Genesis, where we’ll see that need in action—and God’s marvelo…
 
How much faith does it take to live the Christian life? Daily faith! We have to have daily faith, because so much of what God promises us is in the future. Thankfully, He also gives us encouragement right now. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re looking at Abraham’s life in Genesis for the daily dose we all need.…
 
Looking at the world, it’s easy to get discouraged. Things seem to just get worse and worse, don’t they?

Are we living in the end-times? The daily news seems worse than ever! But do today’s headlines signal the end-times? If so, what does that mean for you and me?

How often do you feel the need to be in control? Let me ask it another way. How often are you truly at peace? In our Top Ten Countdown of Live the Bible, our #3 episode challenges us to be honest with ourselves about that tough question. We all need rest—but we can only find it when we let go of one thing and truly trust God. How do we do it? The k…
 
"Judge not, that ye not be judged” (Matthew 7:1). That might be the most popular verse in the Bible—and it’s definitely the topic of our 4th-most-popular episode of Live the Bible!

Think of the turning points in your life. Some are obvious—weddings, children, new jobs. Others are subtle—small decisions, quick conversations, chance encounters. We might chalk these moments up to coincidence, but Scripture shows us otherwise. In our 7th-most-popular episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the book of Ruth to glean the assuri…
 
What’s the hardest part of a marathon? You may be surprised. The beginning, when your adrenaline’s pumping and the crowd’s cheering, is easy. And the sight of the finish line gives you another boost at the end. But the middle’s hard—REALLY hard. (Ask me how I know.) The same is true in our Christian lives. In our 8th-most-popular episode of Live th…

What do you do when God doesn’t meet your expectations? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’ll turn to the book of Mark to answer that tough question.

Following His example in four key areas is the key to steering toward the life we want.…
 
Let’s be honest. We all deal with doubt on some level. Feelings and circumstances tempt doubt to creep in on even the most seasoned Christians—even doubt about the basics of our faith. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to Matthew 11 to find out how we can deal with our doubts—and become stronger because of them. Doubt can turn into a…
 
Do you ever feel like God is kicking you when you’re down? Whatever our situation is, we want Him to intervene. It would be SO easy for Him to step in and change what we can’t—and yet, He doesn’t. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the book of John where two people pled with Jesus to come and heal their brother—but Jesus showed up …
 
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood . . .” Does that take you back to sophomore English class? It does me too, but it also makes me think of another bit of poetry that presents two roads to the reader—and a choice that makes all the difference. Our choice. I’m talking about Psalm 1—and in this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning there for som…

When’s the last time you received a gift that you didn’t open? Probably never! We can’t wait to unwrap gifts that our loved ones have picked out just for us.

We might chalk these moments up to coincidence, but Scripture shows us otherwise. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning t…
 
Sometimes it feels like God isn’t doing anything in your life—or worse, like He’s forgotten you. If life has ever crumbled around you, in spite of how hard you prayed, you know the feeling I’m talking about. God is the One we’re supposed to turn to with our disappointments. But where do you turn when God is the One who has disappointed you? In this…
 
What book of the Bible most intimidates you? For a long time, my answer was Revelation. But when I finally studied Revelation the way you’re supposed to study any book of the Bible—interpreting Scripture with Scripture—it quickly became one of my favorites! Revelation not only reveals what wonderful things lie ahead for those who believe in Christ,…
 
You’re a contender. Or at least Scripture says you should be. And so should I. Jude starts his letter of the New Testament urging us to “contend earnestly” for the faith. Why? Because our walks with God are worth fighting for. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re digging into Jude’s letter to find out two key steps we can apply today.…
 
Who in your life has set a bad example? Perhaps you had a parent who disciplined out of anger. Or a pastor who wielded his Bible like a club. Or a boss who abused his or her power. It’s easy to dismiss such lousy leadership as incompetency. But Scripture says we can learn a lot from a bad example! In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to…
 
Ever wonder what heaven will be like? This episode of Live the Bible will tell us. Movies, best-selling books, and paintings have too often (mis)shaped our ideas of heaven. But God’s Word, in the book of Revelation, tells us the facts about what’s waiting for us when we die. The truth about the hereafter holds the hope we need for here and now.…
 
We’re all familiar with the Christmas story—Jesus comes to earth as a baby, born in a lowly manger in Bethlehem. But that was the first coming of Christ. His SECOND Coming is still future—and when the world meets Jesus again, it will be nothing like the first time! In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re flipping between the Old Testament and the …

In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the books of Matthew and Revelation to learn what the end-times look like. Listen to the podcast now to find out how to prepare.…
 
What God says will happen always does. From crystal balls to horoscopes and board games, people have spent a fortune on trying to foretell the future. Yet, all methods fail, except one—and it’s completely free: biblical prophecy. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re looking in the books of John, 1 Thessalonians, and 1 Corinthians for the next b…
 
We’ve all heard the Beatles croon, “All you need is love.” And that sounds good to most of us. But—what is love? And what does it mean to love your neighbor? There’s where the disagreements begin! In this episode of Live the Bible, we’ll examine the seldom-seen book of 2 John, where God tells us exactly what love is—and why it must be joined with t…
 
There’s something inside us that hungers for resolution. We crave songs with the perfect last note and movies with the right ending. We need loose ends tied and conflicts resolved. And yet, we live in a world that’s unresolved. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re looking to the book of 1 John for how to deal with that tension. It’s a simple—bu…
 
Are you tired of taking two steps forward and one step back? It’s exhausting! Thankfully, Scripture shows us a better way to live.

Do you know those essentials? Today’s the day t…

The Bible is the best-selling book in history. Sounds like a good thing—and it is—but God’s goal isn’t for us to just have a stack of Bibles on the shelf. He wants us to, well, LIVE the Bible! In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the book of James to find out exactly what that means and how to do it. (And why we must.) It’s a simple …
 
If God knows everything we do, how can we be sure our salvation is secure? And if our salvation IS secure no matter what we do, does it matter what we do? Sometimes it seems like the book of Hebrews says yes and no! In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re tackling those confusing passages head on. With a little context, we’ll see that Hebrews hold…
 
Who in your life has hurt you so badly that a part of you died? I’m talking about that person who spoke too much or showed up too little, neglected too much or lashed out too often—someone who took advantage of you, or betrayed you, or abused you. How do you forgive that person? In this episode of Live the Bible, we look in the book of Philemon to …
 
God’s grace is helpful not just for the hereafter but also for this afternoon. As Christians, we know God’s grace secures our eternity. The question is: How can we apply it now?

How do you want to finish your life? That’s not an easy question to think about. When we’re young, we don’t think about it at all. And the older we get, the more distracted we get. Some folks would love to be distracted all the way to the grave. But God wants so much more for you than that. SO much more . . . In this episode of Live the Bible, we’r…
 
2,350 verses. That’s the number of verses in the Bible about money. If that sounds like a lot, it’s because it is! Why would God dedicate so much of His Word to our finances? Because money competes with God as the master of our lives more than anything else. Our world is fully invested in convincing us that we’re lacking; we always need more. Can w…
 
What’s greater than God’s grace? It’s pretty amazing. But God’s grace has its problems—or at least we have problems with it. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’ll find in the book of 2 Kings two of the biggest problems we have with grace—and discover how to overcome them. Let’s experience God’s grace as He intended.…
 
Jesus had one driving focus throughout His entire life. This single thing—this one main goal, one primary hope—motivated everything He did. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to Psalm 68 to discover Jesus’ driving focus and learn how to make it ours too. Think you know what it is? You might be surprised!…
 
If you could go back and undo your greatest mistake, would you? Of course, you would! I’d give my right arm for a chance like that. But we know too well that time never rewinds; we can’t undo our choices that cost us the most. We can’t change the past. But we CAN change the past that WILL be—and in this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to t…
 
We long for greatness. Deep down—or maybe not so deep down—we all do. And guess what? Jesus says greatness is a great goal! “Go for it!” He basically told His disciples. But before we grab for greatness, we’ve got to be sure we know what greatness really is. Do we? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re turning to the book of John for the answer—…
 
What will happen when you stand face-to-face with God? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re talking about that future day when everyone who believes in Jesus will stand before the judgment seat of Christ. Can you think of a bigger sounding test? Me neither. But take a deep breath! Scripture assures us this will be a wonderful day. Are you ready…
 
Feeling out of control is the worst. Or is it? Let me put it another way: How often do you feel the need to BE in control? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re learning why that urge to control everything is a bad idea and how to let go and truly rest in God. In that sense, feeling out of control is the best. The key lies in a psalm that’s just…
 
What fear are you carrying with you today? Maybe it’s fear of the unknown—or of the known. Maybe it’s fear about your children’s or grandchildren’s future or your health or your finances or your country. Whatever it is, we’re facing it head on in this episode of the Live the Bible. Don’t let fear keep breathing down your neck. God’s Word offers a s…
 
Someone—or something—in your life is trying to elbow their way in front of God. Meet your idol. I’m not talking about an idol like a person you admire, but an idol like the kind we read about in the Old Testament. I know, I know: Who struggles idolatry today? Well—I do. We all do. In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re talking about this serious …
 
Jesus is coming soon. But so what? If one thing is constant in this world, it’s that the news is bad. The simple fact is: the news is a business, and when tragedy strikes, business is good. But do today’s terrible headlines mean the end is near? And if so, so what?? In this episode of Live the Bible, we’re looking at the truth about the end-times. …
 
Your life is a marathon. And it’s tough. In today’s episode of Live the Bible, we get to gulp down some encouragement to keep going and growing in the hardest part of every marathon: the middle!
