PP015 Getting Excited about the Ascension

We are deeply moved by Christ’s incarnation (birth) and death on the cross. Most of the time we also remember to glory in his resurrection. Do we forget to be similarly moved by the Lord’s ascension? If so, we’re missing out! The truth is, we all get excited about all kinds of ascension stories from every day life. When we see the ultimate ascension story in light of these other ascension stories, we’ll find ourselves rejoicing in it as well. In this episode, Mike shows us five images from everyday life to help us: the ascension as linchpin, punch line, laser level, rags to riches story, and navigational aid. 

Scriptures Referenced: Luk 24:52-53; Jon 6:62; Acts 1:10-11, 2:34-36; Eph 4:8; Heb 6:19-20; Eph 2:6; 2 Cor 8:9; Php 2:6-11; Luk 14:11

PP003 The Perfect Posture-Correcting Device

If you’ve been getting pop ads in your social media lately about posture correcting devices, you’ll want to tune in to this one. As much as we need reminders to straighten up our physical posture, we need reminders about our soul posture even more. Sometimes we get swelled up with pride; other times we slouch down with self-loathing. The cross is the perfect posture correcting device. On the one hand it reminds us what it took to save us — that keeps us from looking down on others. But it also reminds us that we’ve been purchased at great cost and now belong to God himself. That keeps us from beating up ourselves. We can now walk with our heads held high in dignity, but not in pride.

Scriptures Referenced: Lev 26:13, Col 1:9-11, James 1:2-3
