It's Not About Religion!

If someone you love has lost their way in their journey with Jesus, it’s not at all time for giving up! Erica, a Perry and Shawna Mornings listener shares about her awakening to Jesus, her falling away, and how Jesus brought her back. Then, the Lord wants us to know him intimately, he wants to reveal the depths of his heart and love and plan to us. He wants us to know him experientially because he’s a living God. It’s not at all about religion! Then, Perry wants to be less defensive, Scott, less afraid of conflict, and Shawna, more assertive. Can these three ragamuffins ever change??? : ) Finally, if you’re a follower of Jesus, you may not see yourself this way, but you’re a pastor! We make the case, see what you think.

God's Faithful Love

Today’s show starts off with a conversation about God’s faithful love for us and His longing to be in a covenant relationship with us. Shawna shares how her daughters upcoming wedding day and marriage itself reminds her of the picture marriage is meant to be of the together forever, covenant love of God.  Next, Scott shares concerning statistics about many of our pastors worldview. We’re challenged by these staggering statistics to keep our hearts and our minds humble before God when we’re studying His Word. Then Shawna shares what God revealed to her about peace.  Even good things, like peace, can become idols when they cause us to sin against God.  Lastly, Scott and Shawna discuss how human wisdom pales in comparison to The Truth of God’s Word.

Sins of the Fathers

It’s been a deep wound in Brian’s life. His grandfather disowning him. Turning his back on him when he was a boy. And Brian never knew why. So five years ago Brian started a journey to find out why. It’s been a brutal and beautiful journey. And now he invites you into his story with his new podcast, The Grandfather Effect, that starts this Thursday.

With each unfolding episode you’ll journey with Brian into the pain, into the darkness, into perhaps an unexpected awakening to the extravagant love of the wounded Jesus and the perfect love of Abba Father.  Brian Dahlen is cohost of Brian and Jannelle Mornings on Moody Radio Cleveland and he joins our team today to open up about the scars and the beauty of his journey.

First, Brian’s discovering that every family is broken and needs the gospel. That he’s capable of doing just what his grandfather did. He’s learning how to forgive a dead man. That his grandfather’s sin left him feeling like he had to earn love and attention. He’s learning to forgive those who aren’t asking for it because he’s been so unconditionally loved and forgiven by the Beautiful One. But why did his grandfather disown him? Well that’s for the last episode.

"Trust Me in the Dark"

Perry’s friend thinks that God has fatalistically determined him to be outside God’s family forever. A conversation about why that could never be true!  Then, Perry’s been working on a new song for a year, it’s been a long, painful process as its message of rejecting the idols of culture has been pressed into his heart. And now as it’s ready to be released it may be that God is showing him not to release it. It’s a hard but really good realization.

Next, Shawna admits she always feels behind everyone else, that she should be doing more for the Lord as she looks around at what others are doing. Then, Perry believed a lie for a long time, and it was destroying him. It was this, “If I don’t feel forgiven, then I’m not forgiven.” Finally, if we’re committed to walking with someone who’s really hurting, it can be hard to say “no,” when they call. It’s a conversation about the line between being a helper and thinking we need to be the messiah.

Heart Wrenchingly Beautiful Love

God tells a guy to marry a prostitute who then goes back to selling her body. She becomes a slave and God tells him to buy her out of slavery and bring her back home. It’s a book in the bible! And it’s a painfully beautiful picture of God’s love for us. Then, sometimes life can be like looking up a 100 foot cliff that we have to scale. And we so often shrink back in fear because we so easily forget that we have the Spirit of God in us. That’s the story of MercyMe’s “Say I Won’t,” the song inspired by the courage and faith of Gary Miracle. Next, God’s unconditional, loyal, furious, unbreakable, extravagant love. The Hebrew language describes in in one word: Hesed. Finally, we take a swim in the bottomless ocean of the glory and brilliance of Jesus!
