Hour 1: Jesus had the Tough Conversations

As Christians, we need to have tough conversations.  Yes, Jesus Loves Me, and Jesus loves you, but Christ's love is also controversial as well as grace-filled.  Steve and Kelli discuss how Jesus was not afraid to defend his words by the Word.  Jesus used Old Testiment scriptures to challenge the Pharisees and his disciples, pushing them to "lose the crowds and numbers." We spoke about Francis Chan's message to the church, no matter our popularity.

Hour 2: Never Too Late to Share Jesus

We have a young (at heart) guest in Studio with us today!  Lloyd Bowen, 79, is on fire for the Lord with Evangelism.  He shares the need and purpose of batism to the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders at Madison Park Church of God with a 7 week discipleship class.  Lloyd shares his personal testimony of a second chance of life, and how he now uses his time to bring attention and glory to his Savior.  Entire families have joined his class, and have come to serve the Lord.  Until the Lord takes him home, Lloyd Bowen will teach of His goodness and freedom.
