God may have asked you to do something that doesn't fall in line with what the culture and everyone else is doing. Maybe His calling on your life does not seem like the most logical thing to do. That certainly was the case for Mary, but she believed “that there would bea fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” Does that describe you today?

    Dear Lina: What are some biblical ways to handle aging in a godly manner? [BREAD & BUTTER CHRISTIANITY]

    Play Episode Listen Later Nov 17, 2022 15:59


    What do you feel when you think about aging? Resistance? Anxiety? Hopelessness? Disorientation? Most people associate negative emotions with the aging of our bodies. Granted, aging has its difficulties, but a look at what the Scripture says about old age is in fact comforting. God's word is good news also for the aging, encouraging us to fix our eyes on a God who always cares for us (Isaiah 46:4), and filling us with hope for the bright future Christ has for us. Take a listen to today's podcast where I answer this question: Dear Lina, I'm struggling with the aging process both physically and emotionally. What are some Biblical ways to handle aging in a godly manner?

    Caring for elderly parents can be a challenging season in emotional, practical, and financial ways, and there is no ‘one size fits all' guide to teach us how to balance this act. Does the Bible speak to this situation? What is the right way to handle the aging of one's parents? What if we didn't have good relationship with our parents? Are we doing enough? What about my own life goals and responsibilities? These are just a few of the questions I'll address in today's podcast. I believe this is a topic that we need to pay more attention to because we know how deeply God cares for those who cannot care for themselves. Take a listen!

    Many people believe that the way to a more confident, free, whole, and happy life is to love ourselves. In fact, some Christians think Jesus said you must love yourself before you can love others (Matthew 22:39).  Is self-love a biblical concept and if so, how do I do it? In today's podcast I invite you on a journey of defining this ambiguous concept and exploring what the Bible has to say about it. Let us prayerfully discern if self love is the message of the culture or of Jesus.

    Have you ever been asked that question? Have you ever asked that question yourself? Many Christians believe that Jesus died and rose again for our salvation but have no personal experience of the love of God. Perhaps our own shortcomings, insecurities, struggles with identity, and false measures we use to determine our value make us question how God could love someone like us. In today's podcast I invite you to discover some of the wrong assumptions about God's love and how to undoubtedly know how valuable and loved you are by your Creator.

    We are living in an age where business, efficiency, and accomplishments are celebrated. But ultimately our fast-pace lifestyle and expectations to keep up with everything will lead to negative results, including anxiety, lack of deep relationships, and burnout.

    Soul Sisters #3: Rage Age

    We can all agree, we are living in a rage age. Whether on the road, on social media, in political discourse, in the church or among friends, it seems we have lost the virtues of kindness, humility, and self-control, and replaced them with accepting, respecting, and even encouraging outbursts of emotion in the name of being “right.” But a quick search about what the Scripture says about anger will point out that anger is not the way of a Christ-follower, not even when clearly wronged. On today's podcast we will talk about how to become counter-cultural when it comes to rage, how to recognize righteous anger from sinful anger, how to change and be Spirit-led, and how to harness anger for positive action.

    Dear Lina: I feel disconnected from my church. Is it me or is it the state of the church?

    Many people in the U.S. are struggling right now with feeling disconnected from the church. The reasons might be many. Maybe because of COVID, maybe because our way of life changed to a much more virtual reality, maybe because the state of affairs in the church has been troubled for some time, or maybe because we disengaged from the church. How shall we recognize the cause of our disconnection from the church and how can we find the remedy? Friend, I will frame today's episode by asking three questions I'd like you to consider as you think about your relationship to your local church. I trust this will be helpful and encouraging!

    On today's podcast I'll be answer this question from one of our listeners: Dear Lina, lately I've noticed that Christian leaders have pointed to role models in The Bachelorette. I'm confused. Is The Bachelorette consistent with godly character or virtues?

    How can I determine if a closed door is opposition or God's call for me to persevere in faith?

    Have you ever wondered what the closed doors in your life mean and what you are supposed to do when facing them? Thankfully the Scripture is full of examples of closed doors in the face of obedience, and I believe they can help us frame our understanding of how to view the closed doors in our lives.

    Dear Lina: Why do I always feel like God is unhappy with me when bad things happen in my life?

    All of us wonder at some point why difficult things happen when a loving God is in control or when His word promises so many blessings in this life, and it's easy to question God's favor or if He even cared when we go through sufferings. But to associate God's favor only with the good things in our life is a form of prosperity gospel that must be rooted out of our thinking. Take a listen!

    Dear Lina: What should I do when God seems silent?

    If you're wondering why God is silent, what to do in seasons of waiting, or how to recognize if God is speaking, you've come to the right place! This podcast will encourage you to take God up on His promise that He will answer when we call upon Him, but also to welcome seasons of silence as meaningful tools God uses for our growth.

    Dear Lina: Is it ever OK to call someone out publicly as a heretic and false teacher?

    Today's topic might be a sensitive one but a necessary call to pay attention to what kind of messages we expose ourselves to and discern if and when it's our responsibility to speak up and how to do it God's way.

    Dear Lina: Should I leave my church if they are too politically involved, and I disagree with their politics?

    In today's podcast I'll address a politically oriented question in the hopes that it would shift our focus to the main message and mission of the church rather than political debate, and that it would prompt unity among believers rather than polarization.
