Ep. 96: What Does it Mean to Forgive?

Jesus warned us about three specific offenses that we should send away, and refuse to carry with us throughout life. What does sending away an offense really look like? Most of us have a warped definition of what forgiveness is, and therefore find it difficult to walk in freedom from offenses. Jim, Bob and Audrey get practical when it comes to sending away the “feeling” you get from that action, and establishing boundaries to protect you from further harm.

Ep. 95: The Seed of Forgiveness

Understanding what forgiveness really is brings us to core decision we make throughout our day: Will we choose life or death? Join Jim, Bob and Audrey as they help you enjoy life to it’s fullest. You have the authority and choice to decide the quality of your day, your hour and even your moment. You are continuously planting seeds based on what you are thinking about, listening to, and what you are giving your attention to.

Ep. 93: What Offends You Reveals You

When you feel justified to carry an offense against another, eventually you create a pathway to being a bitter person and become an offense magnet – you attract more and more offenses! Wise questions to ask yourself are: Who do I want to be when someone wrongs me? Who do I want to be in stressful situations? Make the decision to be the disciple of Jesus who is filled with righteousness peace and joy. The character traits and nature of God are yours, and you are free to truly walk in love!

Ep. 92: How Offenses Happen

Because of Christ in us, we have all the power necessary to send away offenses, and live free of resentment and bitterness. What a beautiful life of freedom that is! Even though it feels like the offense is a result of what another person did or said, it is actually our own judgement that creates it. Waiting for that person to admit their wrong, apologize and feel remorse rarely happens to the degree you hope it would, and creates misery and frustration. Join Bob, Audrey and Jim as they help you stop the recurring pain that is hurting your heart.

Ep. 91: Yielding to the Influence

As we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we are completely submerged. There is nothing left to “get” from the Lord. The common question then arises: If there’s nothing left to get, then why am I not healed? Why am I not experiencing daily joy and peace? Living under the influence of the Holy Spirit is harmonizing with what you already have. Join Bob, Audrey and Jim as they discuss life with the Holy Spirit, doing things beyond your own strength.

Ep. 90: Humility and the Holy Spirit

Most people presume:  If I get new and deep knowledge, then I will experience a new level with God.  In actuality, when we experience God first, the knowledge follows.  Humility is the beginning of being led by the Holy Spirit. We make the decision to follow Him, not self-serving, but trusting His leading.  Then we are empowered, we experience His presence and we are being continually taught of the Lord.  This is God invading our hearts.  

Ep. 88: Valuing a Dependency on God

Being at home with God, enjoying friendship with Him, continuing a life of daily surrender, it is those very things that keep us in a state of “Abiding” in the Kingdom of God.  In this episode Bob, Jim and Audrey talk about the destructive cycle of receiving freedom, getting too comfortable, and then forgetting about the value of dependency on God and making Him first choice and first response. 

Ep. 87: Entering the Kingdom

Living in the Promised Land isn’t just attainable while here on earth, but our inheritance!  Join Bob, Audrey and Jim as they unravel the question of: Why did God wait so long for God to deliver Israel out of captivity?  And then: What prepared Moses to face the most powerful man on earth and lead God’s people to freedom?  When we have the character of heart and the courage to truly trust God, we will cross the Jordan into Canaan, representing our Promise Land.  

Ep. 86: The Path of Wisdom

The path of wisdom starts at the tree of life.  Jim, Bob and Audrey discuss the dangers of feeding on the tree of knowledge.  Knowledge tells us what the problem is and what to do, but is unable to tell us how to do it, or why to do it. Starting at the tree of life is investing in intimacy and connection with God and receiving daily life from Him where love is always the motivation.  Then wisdom becomes the path… a way of living, not just individual actions.  As we live each day, God’s truth is continually written on our hearts, and we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.  This podcast brings richness to what Jesus often said: “Follow Me!” 

Ep. 85: Trusting God on a Heart Level

Most of the time, motivation towards a goal or dream has a starting place of thinking “this is what I want”…something tangible that will bring us pleasure.  If this is the starting place, you won’t likely find yourself walking in wisdom.  In this episode, Jim, Bob and Audrey unpack the verse: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Walking along the path of wisdom, experiencing intimacy with God, making it our highest goal to know Him…this results in Him being our first choice, our first response and our first love. 

Ep. 84: Being the Wisdom of God, Part 2

The Hebrews call it the closed MEM. MEM is a letter in the Hebrew alphabet that represents the mysteries of water. It is the knowledge that occurs when one plunges into the water and goes below the surface. Wisdom isn’t an intellectual exploration; it is a passing of knowledge that reveals what you need in your life at that moment and how to do it: it is the wisdom of God!  Join Bob, Audrey and Jim as they explore the wonder of BEING the Wisdom of God, rather than just acquiring it.

Ep. 83: Being the Wisdom of God, Part 1

Ep. 82: Journey Into Truth, Part 2

Our number one mission as believers is to see, recognize and enjoy what God has given us!  Enjoying life starts with knowing wisdom, and we can’t have wisdom apart from truth.   Join Jim, Bob and Audrey as we make the journey to discover more and more truth.  The test for knowing if something is true, is asking: Does this truth reflect God’s character as represented through Jesus? Is there good fruit as a result of this truth?  We are called to be the “connectors” between heaven and earth.  Our degree of influence is directly correlated with how we are living the “kingdom life” every single day.  Living in the kingdom is when the truth is in influencing us so much - we love life to the point where we can hardly contain ourselves!

Ep. 80: Doing Comes from Knowing

Many believers contemplate and may even stress over “what should I do?”  Jim, Bob and, Audrey discuss that when we truly know God, the “doing” isn’t based on the willpower of massive efforts or cognitive and mental awareness with intention.  Instead, the question changes: “How much do I really want to know God? The person that reaches that place and truly asks God to “search my heart” discovers that “doing” comes from “knowing”.  And following the path of life becomes effortless and saturated with peace.

Ep. 79: Less Information, More Transformation

The more information you gather that is not changing your life, the heavier and despair you feel. In this, episode Jim shares his personal remedy for feeling “off track” and how he identifies and tunes in to the moment when He stopped listening to God. After hearing any message, the only part you remember is what you are truly willing to put in your heart. If you are ready to apply a revelation to your life, the light will turn on to the truth that will set you free.

Ep. 78: The Big Deception

The big deception is: I need to find a way to have a great life apart from God. The truth lies clearly in front of us: The treasures of the Kingdom are found in Jesus alone.  When Jesus ascended to heaven after being resurrected, He opened the door for us to receive the realm of resources that are part of our inheritance.  Jim, Bob and Audrey discuss the real question that lies before us:  Will we really believe what Jesus accomplished?  Do we truly know the resources available to us?  

Ep. 77: The Pollution of Religion

Religion with relationship has polluted mindsets to believe that a person just needs a “special key” or a formula or method in order to get their needs met. Most people are searching for a nugget that requires nothing on their part. Dr. Jim, Bob and Audrey explore the Lordship of Jesus, which is highly relational and daily surrendering to His ways, His promises, His character and His thoughts. When we understand who we are, with Him as our Lord, then every decision we make will be aligned to His Kingdom Treasures, and the inheritance He has provided for us.
