This week we are happy to have an interview with Robert Watson, pastor, and newly published author! He wrote 'Upside Down Crown' which is now available on Kindle and at most major bookstores.
The premise of the book is based on the only sermon that Jesus ever preached - which is the Sermon on the Mount (found in Matthew 5-7). There are so many lessons in it, and once applied to our lives, we find that we have peace and joy, instead of anxiety and disappointment.
You may remember that Robert was also on episode 31, where he talked about porn and sex, and this topic is also covered in this book, as Jesus refers to sexual purity in his sermon. This is such an important conversation to have with your pre-teen and older kids, and spouse! We know that you guys already know that, as episode 31 is in the top 3 most-listened to episodes we have!
So, we encourage all of you to look at your heart, and not just your behavior. Do you just cheer Jesus on, but then refuse to get your hands dirty and join in on what he is calling you to? And are you doing great things for him, or for yourself?
Good Word of the Day:
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
This is another great reminder that as Christians, we are living for more than we can see here on earth. Sometimes it is too easy to trust Jesus with ALL OF ETERNITY, yet we refuse to trust him with simple things like relationships, finances, struggles, etc. God is Lord of all! And for all time. Salvation is a past, present, and future action. We are invited to receive the Lord's salvation today and every day!
You've Been Served:
- Most of our service actions involved LISTENING, and empathizing! We don't have to have the right words to say, but we do all have the right ears to listen! So let's listen to each other, hear each other, and serve one another in this simple way!
Thanks for joining us for another episode of our podcast. We hope you have an amazing week this week with your families!
