    God's Work of Sanctification with Gavin Ortlund

    52:47

    Today we get to hear from Gavin Ortlund on the topic of sanctification. Gavin is a husband, father, pastor, and writer. We talked about how the Lord uses the seasons and challenges of life to encourage us to turn to the Word, to pray, and to be actively involved in our local churches - all things that the Lord uses to bring about holiness in us. We pray this episode encourages you as you continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, knowing that it is God who works in you for his good pleasure.    FULL SHOW NOTES   DISCUSSION QUESTIONS What means has the Lord used to grow you in the grace and knowledge of Christ throughout your life? How does rooting your sanctification in your justification allow you to rest in God’s work? How might you shift your prayer life to increase your reliance on the role of the Holy Spirit in your sanctification? Sanctification is a (sometimes slow) process. How does knowing that bring you encouragement as you see the ways God is gradually growing you?

    Why Did Jesus Have to Die? with Yannick Christos-Wahab

    52:51

    Today we get to hear from Yannick Christos-Wahab about why Jesus came to die. This episode was inspired by a conversation I personally shared with a friend who asked, “Why did it have to be Jesus? How can Jesus actually pay the debt I owe because of my sin?” This is such an important question for us to really know and understand, and Yannick is going to help answer it. So you’ll know a bit more about him, Yannick is from Nigeria, and was born and raised in London, where he is now a pastor at Stockwell Baptist Church. He is a husband and father, and he also co-authored a book called The Cross in Four Words published by The Good Book Company. We pray this episode encourages you to linger long on the cross of Christ! FULL SHOW NOTES   DISCUSSION QUESTIONS What does it mean to you that Jesus came to die for the sins of humanity on a cross? How might dwelling on your sin lead you to marvel more at the cross? What Scriptures lead you to a deeper understanding of what Christ has done on the cross? Perhaps consider memorizing one of those passages. How might you, even today, spend time marveling at what Christ has done on the cross on your behalf? What are you going to do or implement as a result of what you’ve learned this week?   SPONSORS SEBTS offers GO Certificates, which allows you to get equipped with affordable and quality theological education that is self-paced and totally-online, allowing you to remain deeply invested in your local ministry roles.

    1:05:37

    Today we have the joy of learning from Dr. David Filson on one of the most beautiful aspects of Old Testament literature - the covenants. Dr. Filson is a father and a pastor. He has been in pastoral ministry for over thirty years, and has served at his current church in Nashville for the last decade. We pray this conversation will truly help you see Jesus in all of Scripture and that it serves to remind you of God’s steadfast, unshakable covenantal love for his people.      FULL SHOW NOTES   DISCUSSION QUESTIONS How does God relate to man? What role does Christ play in the covenant relationship between us and God? How does the covenant story (from Adam to Christ) help you better understand your salvation?

    The Reality of Our Rebellion with Dr. Rebecca DeYoung

    48:34

    Last week, we discussed creation and the rebellion of man, and today we’re digging deeper into the reality of our rebellion with Dr. Rebecca DeYoung. Rebecca DeYoung has extensively researched the topic of sin, and while sin and rebellion might not seem like the most encouraging topics, we hope you’ll see in this conversation that as we grow in awareness of our brokenness, we only grow in our recognition and awe of God’s grace to us despite our sin! We pray that as you listen to this conversation you come to a deeper understanding of what God has rescued us from.   FULL SHOW NOTES   DISCUSSION QUESTIONS How might better understanding your sin be a help to you and spur you on towards Christlikeness? Are there patterns of thought or rhythms of desire you’ve fallen into that are thwarting the good life God intends for you? How does Christ having paid the penalty for your sin change how you now live and fight your sin? How does remembering how much God loved you, even in your sin, change how you move towards and engage those around you in love? What are you going to do or implement as a result of what you’ve learned this week?   SPONSORS Kaleidoscope retells every book of the Bible in beautifully-designed single volumes with elementary-aged kids in mind.
