Passing Time Devotional

Christian Talk >

Passing Time Devotional was born out of the desire to connect with the students of Shawn and Connor’s youth ministry. Recognizing that faith grows the more we encounter Jesus, the pair began recording small devotional lessons for students to access throughout the week. Each episode is short, originally intended to be listened to during the passing time in between high school classes, hence the name “Passing Time Devotional.” The podcast has since grown and expanded to not just be meant for students, but as a resource for anyone looking to connect with Christ and spend time engaged in His word.

Anger – The Feels – [ep. 49]

1/8/2019
More
Have you, or someone you know ever been prone to "flying off the handle?" How are we as Christians suppose to handle anger when we encounter it in our lives? On one hand we're told to be meek and mild, to be slow to anger and to watch our tongue. But throughout scripture we can see examples of God showing his anger, and Jesus doing things like overturning the money changers tables in the temple. Whats a believer to do when we feel anger in our lives?

Joy – The Feels – [ep. 48]

1/1/2019
More
Joy is a crucial part of the Christian experience, and sometimes it can be overlooked. It can often be easy to fixate on our own brokenness and our desire to have God fix it and restore us. But that ends up putting all of the focus on us, and not God. Joy is evidence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and is something that should be central to our state of being.

Apathy – The Feels – [ep.47]

12/25/2018
More
Apathy is easy, it's indifference and doesn't require much from the person. No need to take a stand or put your neck out on the line. It's also toxic for our faith. We'll turn to Jesus' word in Revelation where he rebukes a church for their apathy. But if we find ourselves in a place of apathy how do we fight it? Where do we turn and how can we break the cycle?

Frustration – The Feels – [ep. 45]

12/11/2018
More
Have you ever been frustrated with yourself or even God? It might be safe to say that all of us have been there, and we're not alone. At some point in our faith walk we might find ourselves sort of spinning our tires, stuck somewhere, or just not getting the answers or discernment we feel that we need. In 2nd Corinthians Paul pleads with God three times to remove what He described as a "thorn in his side" - but God doesn't respond in the way Paul asks. So how should we respond to frustration...

Father Abraham – Back To Sunday School – [ep. 44]

12/4/2018
More
Father Abraham had many sons, many sons had Father Abraham. But for a good portion of His life that didn't seem to be the case. God made a promise with Abraham and then seemingly took his sweet time to deliver. How do you respond when you become impatient with God? Despite Abraham's short comings God was still faithful to him, and followed through on His promise. We might not be a person of the same magnitude as an Abraham, or any of these "big time" biblical people. But God's character is...

Zacchaeus The Wee Little Man – Back To Sunday School – [ep. 37]

10/16/2018
More
A wee little man was he, climbed a sycamore tree to see what he could see. The story of Zacchaeus is one that tends to remain in the world of "sunday school story". It's got a cute song, and some comedic flair with the stature of the small chief tax collector. But the interaction between Zacchaeus and Jesus is profound and deep. It can challenges us not only to check our priorities, but to also reflect on our, and t he churches reaction to broken an lost people; like Zaccaeus in our lives.

More
We're headed back to Sunday School! The book of Jonah is often taught in Sunday School class rooms with a lot of focus placed on the whale. But what are we missing? Though it's a short book in the bible, Jonah is a very deep piece of scripture. We'll dive into the themes, the mind of Jonah, and some history behind the story.

10/2/2018
More
We're going old school (kind of). We've come a long way since the contemporary revival of the 70's and 80's. To close out our series "That's My Jam" we're taking a look at the Matt Redmond Song "The Heart Of Worship". Worship isn't about us, even though we can often treat it that way. Sometimes it can morph into a consumer experience, instead of being what God wants it to be. The Heart Of Worship challenges us to check our heart and our priorities when we come to God in worship.

You Loved Me Anyway – That’s My Jam – [ep. 32]

9/11/2018
More
God loved us even when we were still sinners. Even when we considered him our enemy, he loved us. You Loved Me Anyway, written by Sidewalk Prophets explores God's amazing, undeserving love for us. Some may not want to turn to God because they feel the need to "clean themselves us first", or that "God can't love me after the things I've done." But as this song expresses not only does God love us at our very worst, there is simply nothing we can do that can separate his love from us.

9/4/2018

Today we're discussing a song that has shot up the Christian song charts since it's Debut. Reckless Love, written by Cory Asbury is a powerful song of the lengths God is willing to go to show his love for mankind. There has been some kickback as to weather the word "reckless" should be used to describe anything about God, and some congregations will not play the song in worship services.
