Craving strong spiritual leadership? Many Indiana pastors have a common goal: to introduce a broken and hurting community to the Savior Jesus Christ! Kelli and Steve are interviewing pastors within our Moody Radio listening area, the men and women behind the pulpits, to discover the hearts of humble leadership, and bring unity to the body of Christ.
Today we spotlight Senior Pastor of Crossroads Community Church, Lyndon Hopkins.
ABC News 8 (WMTW) of Maine exposed the freedom of darkness within the University of Maine in Southern Portland. A student desecrated the Holy Bible, by labeling it, "The Unholy Bible," painting it with hellish flames and satanic goatheads and symbols. Kelli and Steve discuss the controversy. The student's reaction is more emotionally disturbing than his creation, "It's just very freeing to be able to have that kind of ability to just see what you're not supposed to do --- and then just do it."
Do rough patches in life ever catch you by surpise? Despite our best intentions, we all have blind spots, bad releational habits that are keeping us from enjoying our relationships fully. Relationships stand at the center of all we do, and Laurel Shafer helps women first find their identity in Jesus Christ, and then resets their realtional patterns.
Every day, Kelli and Steve share our Scripture of the Day, and share the Word of God with you! Today we will focus on Proverbs 2:1-5. "My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God."
