PP038 God’s Good Conspiracy in a World of Conspiracy Theories

What are Christians to do with all the conspiracy theories swirling around? Obsess over them? Research them to death? Lose sleep over them all? The gospel teaches us to make three moves: First, we try level the playing field and see that all of us believe in at least one conspiracy theory. Second, we diagnose our heart’s attractions to conspiracy theories. Third, we go to the cross of Christ and the gospel. Learn how to overcome our fears of conspiracy theories, not by obsessing over them, but by seeing how all of them are swallowed up by the Triune God’s conspiracy for our good.

PP035 Singing by the Seaside

When Israel was saved out of Egypt, they sang praise to God, on the banks of the Red Sea. If you have been redeemed, the Lord has put a new song in your mouth – so sing it! As people saved by the Lord, we have good reason to praise him in song. But what should we be singing?

PP031 How to Get out of Yourself

Martin Luther aptly described our sinful nature as “so deeply curved in on itself that it wickedly seeks all things, even God, for its own sake.” While it is vital to appreciate God’s interest in us as individuals, it is also crucial to remember the universe isn’t all about me. God has a big thing going on, and the gospel invites us to be a part of it. This Psalm started out with David speaking about “my soul.” Then he began to speak about “us” and “those who fear” the Lord. Now at the end of the Psalm, he broadens his horizon to embrace the angels and all of God’s creatorial works. Get out of yourself and join in with nature’s song!


Scriptures Referenced: Ps 103:20-22; 111:2; Gal 2:20

PP029 The Wonder of Having God as our Father

J. I. Packer wrote: “If you want to judge how well a person understands Christianity, find out how much he makes of the thought of being God’s child, and having God as his Father.” Meanwhile David in Psalm 103 wrote: “As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.” In this third episode tied to our August Summer Challenge, learn how believers in Christ can experience the compassionate fatherhood of God in ways far beyond what even David could enjoy.

PP028 What You Think of God is the Most Important Thing About You

People created in the image of God cannot have a proper assessment of themselves without a proper assessment of God. And people who were created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever cannot do so without truly knowing God. So what you think about God is not only important, it is the most important thing about you. Continuing our journey through Psalm 103, we learn what it unfolds concerning God’s character – and what that means for you and me.

PP027 Do You Talk to Yourself? You’d Be Crazy Not To

There’s a crucial difference between listening to yourself and talking to yourself. According to Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, most of our unhappiness comes from listening to ourselves instead of talking to ourselves. Perhaps King David would agree. In this first episode of the August Summer Challenge series, we overhear David talking to himself about five benefits the Lord had given him. Listen in to learn how you can use biblical self-talk to prime the pump of your heart and cause joyful praise to gush out from deep inside.

Scriptures Referenced: Ps 42:5-6, 103:1-5; Luk 11:13
