Discover 5 of the most overlooked Old Testament stories to inspire you in difficult times 

Let's face it, there are so many great stories in the Bible that often we can simply overlook some of the truly epic ones - the accounts that teach us about God, how He acts in the world and in our lives. That's particularly true of the rich, inspirational stories in the Old Testament.

So, open your Bible, sit back, review the context around these five stories and ask, "How do these relate to me?" Because, well, I guarantee they do.

Why This Podcast Is So Important Now

This is a podcast for today. We all need some inspiration on occasion, but today more than ever we need words of hope, words that breathe life into us. For those of faith, it can be a struggle to find comfort in a world that sometimes seems so foreign from the truth of the gospel.

And that is what we need today. Comfort. Inspiration.

Look, there are podcasts available of very good preachers and their sermons. But my passion is to focus on the insights fueling the epic, life-changing, inspirational sermons that change lives. And I want you to not only hear from the best preachers in America, but also to hear the stories behind their insights – to think as they do.

I have seen the power of a sermon to transform a life. A preacher takes a truth of the Bible, and packages in such a way that the words therein have – well, a unique kind of power, one that transforms lives. How do those insights, those words change hearts and minds? It was that question that pursued me, that I could not get away from; it was that question that inspired this podcast.

I hope you’ll join me.

Have you ever considered that wherever you go you bring the Kingdom of God with you? That as a Christian you’re in effect a walking, talking embassy? And your home? Kingdom territory! An embassy in a foreign land. So, do you act as an ambassador for Christ? Do you take your role as a representative of Christ seriously? When was the last time you shared your faith with someone who needed to hear about Jesus? Rev. Mark Vander Tuig shares his experiences and explains one of the most important roles of a Christian – being an ambassador for Christ.

A key tenet of the Christian faith, forgiveness can often be a difficult task. And the most difficult person for us to forgive sometimes is ourselves. In this “In Focus” episode, Pr. Bob discusses how we can begin the process of self-forgiveness and free ourselves from burden of guilt and shame. Perhaps you can relate to the story Pr. Bob tells of a church member whose guilt has held her back from fully living.

Are you a Christian? If so, why? Have you ever thought about that? Or more succinctly, if someone asks you why you are a Christian can you give a good, concise answer? What experiences have you had that confirm your faith? In short, amidst all the world’s religions, why Christianity? Few people are ever genuinely asked, and fewer still have an answer prepared. In this episode, Rev. Dr. Charley Reeb provides an answer; he discusses what the Christian faith says about God and you.

“But who do you say that I am?” Jesus asked His disciples. Peter answered, and he got it so right – until he didn’t. When we grow in Christian discipleship and when we help others grow as disciples, it is our chief goal to simply get to the confession, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God”? Rev. Dr. Jim Shaddix tells us there is a lot to unpack in Peter’s confession and in Jesus’s statements that follow in Matthew 16. And why does Jesus tell His disciples not to tell anyone? Dr. Shaddix’s insights may bring you to a new level of understanding of discipleship.
