Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team is giving the Gospel on this amazing Freedom Friday. There many out there who have walked the ailes, said the prayers, and claim to believe in God, but do not truly know Him. The good news is that it is never too late to come to a lasting relationship with Jesus. If you want Him, tell Him this. Surrender to Jesus and let Him be the Lord of your life today. It is not about you being perfect, but rather Jesus' perfection coming over your imperfections.
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team talks about abundant hope in Christ. Karl shares how hope is reached by starting with faith, then moving to suffering, endurance, character, and then finally to hope. Sometimes we get stuck in the suffering and all seems hopeless. The good news is that we can come to God and He will give us what we need to persevere. God will never not work for your good. Be patient and see what hope He has in store for you today.
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team talks about abundant peace in times of trouble. Karl and Young Thunder both share some life threatening stories and the time of fear they both experienced. They cried out to God in the midst of those experiences and God gave them peace, and with that peace, a way out of the situation. That sparked so many of you, the Boom Crew to join in and talk with us about where God gave you peace in your life. Listen to the best of our show and of your calls right here!
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team asks you, the Boom Crew, what your biggest experience of joy has been since your walk with Christ began. So many of you called in with amazing stories and testimonies of faith. A caller named Bob was sharing his story and said that, "God is a lot stronger than we give Him credit for." Trust God today and ask Him to fill you with a spirit of joy in the good times and the hard ones.
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team tackles finding strength in Jesus even when we are weak. Karl was traveling through a radio station in Southern California where he met a man with mangled hands. This man spent a lot of his life under a communist regime that did not allow him to follow Christ. For 3 years he spent his time in a 3-by-3 cell while his hands were beaten. But even after all this happened, he had more joy than Karl had ever seen. In his time of weakness, God was strong and sustaind him to persevere when it was hardest. How has God clearly shown His strength in a time of weakness.
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, it's Freedom Friday once again! Our awesome summer intern, Eric Miller, joins us on air to share the gripping story of how Christ got a hold of his life. We were blessed to see so many of you changed by this story to the point where you made Christ your savior for the first time ever today! You may feel like you just can't do it anymore. The good news is you no longer have to. With Jesus in our lives, the pressure is completely off. There is nothing you have to do to pay Him back because you can't pay Him back. Jesus loves you so much that all He wants is for you to love Him and spend time with Him. Lean into that truth today and throw those burdens off your shoulders once and for all.
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team focuses on regret and how to be freed from it. Karl shares how our sin can often come from too much unredeemed time on our hands. Ephesians 5 talks about making the most of your time on earth because the days are evil and that could not be more true. Taking every opportunity to sit with God and plan out your day can be an act of worship. Don't let your hands become so free that they start to backslide.
Later in the day, Victoria Elise Michael is with us to talk about a long history of sexual abuse, but how it is NOT her story. Victoria is the author of "Abuse is Not My Story" and you can check it out here: http://abuseisnotmystory.com/
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, Karl shares about his two rescue cats and parallels them to us. Like the cats, we all have bumps, bruises, scrapes, and scars, but the awesome thing is that God wants us to be with Him anyway. These cats had a lot of problems, but now that they are finally in a true home, they can lean into it and become a full fledged member of the house. That is exactly what happens to us when we accept Christ. We are stray and seeking for our real home, and God adopts us into His family. When we are with Him, we are truly home and able to lean into the peace that He gives us.
Today on Karl and Crew Mornings, the team begins the first day of Freedom Week! We wanted to give a small taste of Freedom Friday every single day by pinpointing one specific struggle as well as practical ways to lean into God for your freedom over it. Karl shares about anxiety and how sitting in it can put you in the "mushy middle". The mushy middle is this spot of leaning on your own control, never giving your problems up to God, and constantly being anxious about things that will stop you in your steps. Lift your eyes to the kingdom of God and move on a day-to-day basis. Tomorrow will be anxious for itself.
Start your day with spiritual encouragement, fresh conversation, and the power of
prayer. Join Karl and Crew weekdays from 5 to 9 a.m. Moody Radio in Chicago.
