What is ordinary? And what makes it spectacular? Dave takes another look at Joseph in the Bible – who began to catch the eye of key people because he was doing the ordinary very well. There’s a particular power when we serve God and excel in our ordinary. But how do we do that? Listen in as Dave shares the keys to living a spectacularly normal life.
God is spectacular – yet He’s right in your normal. Often, God “marks” us in the spectacular but “makes” us in the ordinary. So how can we be our very best at being ordinary? Dave looks at how God “marked” and “made” Joseph in the Bible – and how that can apply to us in the 21st century.
How can you turn a problem into a promise? Ben takes a look at an uneducated, underprivileged fisherman called Peter with all his problems, and how Jesus chose him and turned him into a powerful person with amazing promises – and then shows us how God also chooses us and moves us from a problem to a promise.
What does God say you are? To enjoy the best of the Christian life, we need to see ourselves correctly. And the world needs people who are what God says we are. Steve digs into an aspect what God says you are – a steward – and what it means to live that life.
Belief and faith are not the same. Belief is an ingredient of faith. Jesus doesn’t do deals – because he’s a Covenant God. To help us get to grips with this, Dave compares contract with covenant, and takes the example of the marriage covenant to help us understand why and how it can help us with faith.
Anyone who is serious about their “followship” of Jesus has mountains to conquer. But there is a mountain-moving faith within us. Dave takes a look at Elijah’s mountain-experience with the wind, earthquake and fire – when breakthrough didn’t happen. It took a whisper – a “still small voice” – to reveal the presence of God where the power was.
