When our guest’s son was sentenced to life in prison without parole, she was consumed with grief, sadness, and despair. She was distraught wondering why God permitted this to happen. She had prayed for her son since he was a small child. He had been raised with biblical principles and daily prayer. As she tried to make sense of everything, she couldn’t help asking, Where’s God when it hurts so much? Join us as we discover that the best way to “listen” to His voice is to meditate on Scripture and press into His unconditional love to gain renewed hope and fresh faith.
Do Jews need Jesus? It's an age-old debate with eternal ramifications. If Jesus is not the Jewish Messiah, if He is not the savior of the world, if He is not the promised redeemer God sent to restore Israel and redeem the nations (Isaiah 49:6), then bringing His message to the Jewish people is a grave threat to their security. Join us as our guest teaches us that believing in Jesus isn't apostasy; it's obedience, and it leads to eternal blessing.
