    In this episode Leslie discusses the extraordinary life of Hudson Taylor. Taylor is known as the “father of modern missions”. He faced incredible danger and hardship in his lifetime of pioneer missionary work to bring the Gospel to China, and yet he was able to handle tremendous pressure because of his constant and total dependence upon Jesus Christ. In today's uncertain world we can glean invaluable spiritual truths from Hudson's example of gaining courage and boldness through implicit trust in His faithful God.

    You have a calling in your life which is to be conformed in the image of Christ. Knowing about your calling is insufficient, we must live it out. As such, your life must be tested and proven against the perfect standard of Jesus Christ. In this study from Ephesians 4:2-3, we examine humility—the first of Paul's five initial tests that our lives must reflect if we hope to walk worthy of the calling with which we have been called.

    Distractions abound around us, even seemingly good and spiritual ones. Yet as Paul cautions the Colossians, we are to beware of anything that draws us away from Christ (even if it is spiritual and good in and of itself). Join Nathan Johnson in this expositional study of Colossians 2:8-23 as we examine four false teachings the church at Colossae were embracing, and how we must guard ourselves against the very same distractions and doctrine.

    Struggles and suffering is simply abundant in the Christian life. We are not promised ease and safety, rather we have the hope of comfort and joy amidst the difficulties and hardships of life. When we as believers live fully for Christ, we will face persecution and trials—which Paul says we should embrace and delight in. But how? In this expositional message from Colossians 1:24-2:7 we examine the struggle and suffering of Paul and how we too can delight in difficulty and triumph in any tribulation.

    This is the ninth episode in Eric Ludy's winter Daily Thunder series that dives into the unstable season of American history known as the Antebellum period (1815-1861). This particular message addresses the complex and challenging issue of a Christian and the World — a point of intense debate and division for thousands of years in the Church. Is a Christian supposed to avoid the World and shun it completely? Is a Christian supposed to become like the World in order to reach it? Or is there a better way for the Christian to engage this thing called “The World”?

    This is the eighth episode in Eric Ludy's winter Daily Thunder series that dives into the unstable season of American history known as the Antebellum period (1815-1861). This particular message touches on a phenomenon that many of us are witnessing right now in the world (and even in the Church), that we are struggling to understand and explain. It would appear that people's brains are being turned off and individual thought is being replaced with culturally-correct slogans and catchwords that seem mindless and counter-factual. This is not a new phenomenon. But it is critically important that we as believers know what the Biblical response is to it.
