Welcome to the Practicology Podcast

Putting Theology Into Practice

There’s enough disorder in life without disconnecting what you believe from how you live. To make an impact, your faith must be integrated. The Practicology Podcast is bridging the gap between Scripture and every day life because the Bible belongs not only beside the stack of commentaries but also next to the pile of dirty dishes.

We want to help you connect glorious truth about God to the stubborn realities of life — what could be more exciting?

PP088 Deconstructing Deconstruction

Why do people who once seemed like stalwarts of Christian discipleship leave the faith? What leads them to deconstruct what they once professed and defended? In part two of our three-part series on deconstruction, we look at four contributing factors and are reminded again that people questioning their faith – and sometimes, sadly, walking away – is nothing new.


Scriptures Referenced: John 6:60-69; 1Tim 4:1; 2Tim 2:17-18; 2Tim 4:10

PP087 Asaph’s Deconstruction Story

This is the first of three episodes on deconstruction, a term that has become all too familiar in Christian circles the last few years. We walk through Psalm 73 and hear Asaph tell us his massive struggle with doubt and how God brought him through it into a faith far deeper and stronger than the faith he had before.


Scriptures Referenced: Psa 73

PP086 4 Questions to Calm Your Stressed-Out Heart

In this episode we go through four questions you can use to calm your stress-filled heart: (1) Have I forgotten who I really am? (2) Have I forgotten what my Lord really wants? (3) Have I forgotten that my Father really cares? (4) Have I forgotten what the voice of the Spirit really sounds like?

PP085 The Alien Landing at Your School

What would it be like to belong to a different world but go to school in this world? Well, students who are Christ-followers could tell you! We know it isn’t easy being different, but Psalm 119 and other Scriptures help us look at this challenge with a Biblical perspective.


Scriptures Referenced:Psa 119:19-24; Mt 5:11-12; 1Pet 2:11; 4:14-16

PP084 The Immeasurable Greatness of God’s Power to Keep You Safe

How great is God’s power to keep you safe? It is immeasurably great! After all, it is the same power that God exerted in raising Christ from the dead and seating him on the divine throne far above all rule and authority and power and dominion. At the end of Ephesians 1, Paul prays that the Holy Spirit would fill us with a pervasive sense of how safe we are in Christ! In this episode we also reflect on how the Christian faith tilts towards God, towards us, and towards grace.


Scriptures Referenced: Eph 1:19-23; Acts 19; 2Ki 6; Ps 8, 110

PP083 Two Things God Wants You to Know

D.A. Carson says, “just as we allow God’s words to reform our theology and our behaviour, let us let it also reform our praying.” The prison prayers of Paul, of which this passage in Ephesians is one, are a treasure trove of spiritual wealth, and a valuable lesson on how to pray. But the prayers reveal not only the spiritual maturity of Paul, but the desires of God’s heart for his people.


Scriptures Referenced: Eph 1:15-19; Eph 3:14-21; Php 1:3-11; 4:6; Col 1:3-9

PP082 Struck Rich! The Wonders of Our Inheritance

In Christ we have obtained an inheritance that is as secure as the Trinity. Before a genuine believer in Christ can lose his or her inheritance, God the Son would have to lose his inheritance, God the Father would have to lose control, and God the Holy Spirit would have to lose his seal. Grace has struck us eternally rich!

PP081 You Are Part of Something Big

Sometimes we feel very insignificant. But Scripture reminds us that Christ shed his blood for us, and that God’s grace has brought us into something very special, and very big – God’s plan for the ages in Christ. And God has revealed that plan to us because, if we understand it well, it will exalt the significance of our lives today.


Scriptures Referenced: Eph 1:7-10

PP080 He Chose Us! Election Talk That Never Gets Old

The first of our blessings in Christ that Paul celebrates in Ephesians 1 is the blessing of God choosing us. The doctrine of election is not an issue to get Christians fighting, but a blessing to get us praising. That’s not to say we don’t have lots of questions about it though. In this episode, Mike and Matthew take us through 6 questions Ephesians 1 raises, and answers, about the precious doctrine of election.


Scriptures Referenced: Eph 1:3-6
