PP062 God is a Gardener

God loves gardens. He knows what he’s talking about when he compares the local church to a field that is cultivated – like a farm, or a garden. So how can we make sure that churches remain places of planting and growth – spiritual gardens instead of flesh factories?

PP051 Habits of Grace: Meditation & Prayer

Prayer can be hard work, and we need all the help we can get. One thing that helps is understanding how prayer relates to two other activities: reading the Bible and meditating. In this episode we go through a little poem that explains how it works: Before I read I pray / Before I pray I read / If in between I meditate / My heart knows what to say.

PP043 The Rock that Will Not Crumble


John Stott wisely said, “The Bible is a dangerous book to read. For in reading the Bible, we hear the words of Christ.” And as Christ speaks with authority like none other, we need to obey what we hear from Him. The great news is, building our life on obedience to his word is the safest thing to do! And when the storms of life blow against us, Christ’s words prove to be a rock that can support us.


Scriptures Referenced: Matthew 7:24-27; John 3:36; Rom 1:5; 1Pet 2:25

PP026 Discipleship, Part 3

In David Williamson’s final installment on Christian discipleship, we learn that not only is Christ before us that we may follow him, and beside us that we may fellowship with him, but he is also behind us enabling us to fight for him. We don’t fight with phyiscal swords, but it is a battle against the ideas of the culture – we “have divine power to destroy strongholds, to destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God.” 

Scriptures Referenced: Mk 6:7-13; 8:14-15; 2Cor 10:3-5
