In this episode, I’m joined by Kyle George Jones to talk about how to teach the full gospel to kids. We endeavor to speak to these realities and remain true in our effort to show that Jesus is everywhere in your Bible, not just in the New Testament.
There is a beast lurking within all of us. An animal we often feed without realizing until it rears its ugly head and roars for all to hear. This beast affects us all, from Adam all the way down. The story of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar perfectly illustrates and portrays the tragedies of feeding this beast. The beast of sin is pride and the hammer that defeats it is the law.
The churchgoers that populate the pews every Sunday each come with their own backstory. For good or ill, they’ve been drawn to church.

In this episode of Ministry Minded, author and speaker Chad Bird joins the show to talk about his ministry writing and speaking on God’s radical gospel of grace. He and I dive into the deep waters of the theology of the cross and the distinction between God’s law and God’s gospel.
As with most stories, we are continually pursuant of the happy ending. We long for idealized conclusions to our favorite tales and wish there’d be a similar euphoric ending in our own life. This is why the standard fairy tale coda remains “happily ever after.”
