Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, we look at the promise of Philippians 4:19. Paul says, "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus." Take a moment to remember a time where you needed God to provide and He came through. No matter what it may be, take it to God with your whole heart and have faith that God cares for you and wants to provide everything you really need. Dr. Jon Fuder, Adjunct Professor at Moody Theological Seminary, also joins us to talk about The Chicagoland United in Prayer event on January 26th at 5pm.

Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, we talk about how God promises us greatness. In Matthew 23:8-12, Jesus tells His disciples that the greatest among them will be a servant. He says, "For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted." God wants us to be great, but He wants us to work, not for the sight of others, but His glory. As we continue to humble ourselves and do what we do for His glory and not our own, then we will be truly great in the way God intends for us to be. Jeffery Isola, worker for Safe Families in development and church engagement, and Bridgette Gilchrist, serving on a Safe Families leadership team in her church and has been involved in the training of host families, are both host families for this ministry and join us to share what the Safe Families does, life transformation stories, and what to expect from the First Look For Charity at McCormick Place, Friday, February 7th, 7:00-11:00 pm.

Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, we begin our week about the promises of God and what is in it for you. It may seem weird to say that, but there are blessings that we receive from the Lord as His children that He has joy in promising us. Karl shows us through 1 Corinthians 10:13 and Matthew 7:24-25 that God has promised us a way of escape and that we would be indestructible. In the context of 1 Corinthians 10, Paul tells us that God promises a way of escape from the sin of idolatry. Even in the midst of temptation, God promises to provide a way of escape so that we do not have to fall to what is tempting us. Jesus tells us in Matthew 7, if we hear His words and do them, we will be built on the rock and indestructible to whatever wave may come to knock us down. Plus, we have a little fun with you, The Boom Crew, and a game show to see how well you know Karl and Crew. Eloise Crabb, Chief Operating Officer for MorningStar Mission, and Jeanne Lazzara, Development and Program Liaison for MorningStar Mission, also join us to talk about their ministry and how we can help make a difference.

Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, we talk about how spiritual warfare plays a part in stunted discipleship. Whether we know it or not, as believers, we are all in a war all of the time. God has us held tightly in His hand, but Satan still wants to attack us as much as he can. One of the most popular forms of attack are the lies and accusations the devil whispers in our ear, and we begin to believe. We are not left alone in this, however. God gives us the truth of His Word to combat the lies of the enemy. We asked you, The Boom Crew, "what lie did you believe and how did God break you from it with His truth?"

Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, we talk about the limits that we put on God in regards to discipleship. God created each of us uniquely and the ways in which we can be discipled should not be locked into a specific program. Let God be His infinite, awesome self and seek Him with you whole heart to see how He wants to have you discipled. Micah Fries, Senior Pastor of Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN and co-author of Islam and North America, and Leveling the Church, joins us to talk about how the congregation of a church must get involved and not look at church with a consumer mindset.
