Ep. 30 – Christians Can’t Not Forgive Others

Forgiveness should be a mark on the life and mind of every Christian. No Christian forgives perfectly, but we should strive to be known as forgiving people. On this episode, we are highlighting Brandon Hanson’s article for 1517, titled, “Out of Ammo.”

Ep. 28 – Discovering and Guarding Our Purpose

A plethora of content exists today regarding purpose. Discovering one’s purpose in life can take time and requires a sacrificial amount of searching. As Christ followers, we know our purpose is to glorify God, but how focused are we really on glorifying God at all times? On this episode, we are taking a look at an article by John MacArthur, titled, “How Do I Glorify God in the Gray Areas?,” found on Grace to You.

Ep. 26 – Loving Your Neighbor Through Politics

Another season of political discussions is here with the help of the 2020 Democratic primaries. Many Christians stay far away from politics in America; however, politics may be a useful means to bring God’s Kingdom to earth. David Closson composed an excellent article for ERLC, titled, “4 Reasons Christians Should Care About Politics,” and it’s worth unpacking together.

Ep. 25 – Are Christians Allowed to Be Financially Rich?

The Bible says a lot about money, but it’s difficult for people to give their finances over to God. Christians today should have a proper understanding of how to handle money and worship God with it. Bible Gateway published a helpful post, titled, “What Does the Bible Say about Wealth and Prosperity?,” adapted from a book by Costi W. Hinn. Let’s walk through the post together and seek the truth. 

Ep. 24 – The Core of the Saving Gospel

Our discussion today centered around a tweet sent by Mark Dever. The Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church wrote, “I recently heard someone say ‘The core of the Gospel is God’s commitment to protect the vulnerable.’ What do you think?” What is at the core of the gospel message? What exactly is meant by the term vulnerable? Watch the episode and let’s seek the truth together.

Ep. 23 – Helpful Thoughts on Prayer

On this episode, we walked through three sections of a great post found on Focus on the Family, titled, “Seeking God in Prayer.”  If you’re new to praying, this episode will give you a great starting point. If you know someone who is new to praying, this can be a beneficial resource to share with them. If you’re already a prayer warrior, you’ll find great reminders here.

Ep. 22 – What Happened to Convincing One Another?

In order to move forward together, we need to create a healthier environment for dialogue. We shouldn’t retreat to those who agree with us and shame those who disagree. We should seek to convince and persuade everyone. Blake Long composed a new article on his blog — Theology & Life — titled, “The New Intolerance,” where he explains how the Left is redefining intolerance and how Christians ought to respond.

Ep. 21 – Humbly Examine Your Calling

A discussion about God’s “calling” can provide beneficial guidance for us as we seek to follow Christ. Many look to pillars of the faith, such as the Apostle Paul, and wonder when their own special calling from God is going to come. Is Paul’s calling experience the standard? Greg Handley composed an article for IMB, titled, “Let’s Rethink Our Language of ‘Calling’,” where he provides wise counsel about God’s calling. 

Ep. 20 – Seeking Truth in a ‘Post-Truth’ Culture

The culture and Christ seem to collide often. Many today operate with a postmodern mindset. Do we get to determine what truth is? Can something be true for me, yet false for others? Owen Strachan wrote an article for Reformanda Ministries, titled, “Why So Sensitive? Ministry in a Post-Truth Culture,” and it provides much insight regarding a “post-truth” culture.

Ep. 19 – The Whole Trinity Saves

Salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone is not a work accomplished by the Son of God alone — the entire Trinity is involved in every salvation. On this episode, we are learning from an article by Ryan McGraw, published on Tabletalk magazine, titled, “For Whom Did Christ Die.”

Ep. 16 – Concerns with Roman Catholicism

Doctrines within the Roman Catholic Church have sparked numerous conversations through the centuries, which are still very much alive today. Can devout Roman Catholics be genuine Christians? That is the type of question John Piper fielded from a listener on Desiring God. On this episode, we are taking a look at an interview with John Piper on Desiring God, titled, “Can a Devout Roman Catholic Be Genuinely Born Again?,” and discussing important concerns with Roman Catholicism. Let’s seek the truth together.

Ep. 8 – Responsible Disciples Don’t Skip Church

Faithful disciples of Christ should not regularly skip church for a number of important reasons. On this episode of Discern Daily, we took a look at an article written by Nathan Rose, titled, “5 Spiritual Dangers of Skipping Church,” published on For The Church. Let’s take a look at the piece and seek the truth.

Ep. 7 – Seek Unity, Not Diversity

On this episode of Discern Daily, we walked through Shai Linne’s new article for The Gospel Coalition, titled, “6 Ways to Show Your Child God’s Design for Ethnic Diversity.” Discussions about race and skin color flood social media.
