DTLC Radio 063 – WAIT, Why Are You Talking? - DTLC Radio

W.A.I.T. - Why Am I Talking? Wait...wait for what? Wait to see if your talking is productive and edifying. Taking the time to evaluate your own desire to talk - to add input to a conversation - can go a long way in producing positive results. Resolving conflict has a lot to do with thinking about what you are saying and how you are saying it. This week's episode of DTLC Radio is an addendum to last week's podcast on Biblical Communication and Conflict Resolution. Self-Evaluation Too often...


DTLC Radio 062 – Biblical Communication & Conflict Resolution - DTLC Radio

The skill of communication and effectively resolving conflicts - in marriage, business, or any relationship - is paramount to successful living. From the beginning, communication has been presented as THE component in healthy relationships. God first communicated to us - condescending and transcending Himself into our world - illustrating the critical nature of communication. He did so both generally and specifically, that we might know Him and be known by Him. This is also the goal of...


DTLC Radio 061 – Completely Content Totally Dissatisfied - DTLC Radio

The difference between contentment and satisfaction is one of perspective. Contentment is a state of your spirit. Contentment is about conviction and knowing - with assurance - who you are, whose you are, and your purpose in life. It's an issue of knowing you have what you need Philippians 4:11-12) . Remember how our Lord taught us to pray? Our Father...give us this day our daily bread... (Matthew 6:9-13). Contentment is rooted in belonging to the Lord by faith - justification....


DTLC Radio 060 – Christmas in July – Who is Jesus? - DTLC Radio

A. W. Tozer once wrote, "What comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us." Your concept of God - and its consistency with the Bible's revelation of Him - affects every aspect of your life. In turn, who you believe and understand Jesus to be affects you in the same way, and more so. The Message of Christmas in July Christmas in July is not an uncommon "celebration" in our culture. Sales abound this time of year using the phrase and drawing us into stores to...


DTLC Radio 059 – The Sufficiency of Scripture – Psalm 19 - DTLC Radio

The sufficiency of Scripture - that the Bible is the very Word of God and able to accomplish all He desires in and through your life - is a lost truth in many pulpits. After reading an article by Barry Thornton on the ills of the "Emergent church", published by The Christian Restoration Association and available here, I felt provoked to respond. I was not provoked in a negative way but in full agreement with the content of Mr. Thornton's article. I agree that the Bible needs to be brought...


DTLC Radio 058 – Happiness…The Worst Value You Can Have - DTLC Radio

SAY WHAT?! What do you mean, "happiness is the worst value you can have"? Nothing Happy About Happiness You read that right. There is nothing happy about happiness...as a priority in your life. And yes, happiness is the worst value you can have. Why? Because happiness is a result and entirely circumstantial. True, happiness might result from experiencing good things. But what about those times when you experience bad things? Are you happy then? Typically not. And therein lies the problem....


DTLC Radio 057 – Setting Your EQ…Emotional Quotient - DTLC Radio

Remember those "old school" equalizers that were key components of home stereo systems? Recall how you would adjust each individual frequency just right to achieve the optimum in listening enjoyment? I miss my old Mitsubishi rack with 15" woofer cabinets, EQ, automatic 8-cassette tape changer, turntable, tuner, and CD-player. My freshman year at Ball State University (1986), that stereo won the award for "Loudest Stereo in the Dorm"! Man, that thing could rock! Fine Tuning One of the...


DTLC Radio 056 – Freedom In Setting Boundaries - DTLC Radio

Boundaries are all about self-control. A fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). They allow you to take ownership, be responsible, and experience the freedom of living the life God has prepared for you. In fact, boundaries were originally God's idea and He expects us to set them clearly in our lives. When you fail to set boundaries in your relationships, you risk the break down of that relationship. The truth is, your relationships - especially your marriage - cannot develop or grow...


DTLC Radio 055 – Personal Discipline for Holiness - DTLC Radio

In this sixth episode of our series on pursuing personal holiness, we discuss the role of personal discipline. We understand and accept the personal responsibility that comes from our desire to get in shape physically. Likewise, we must embrace our responsibility in growing in holiness. This simply means we are accountable for developing our own personal holiness - growing in spiritual maturity - we play a role in conforming ourselves to the image of Christ. We Learn To Be Holy Becoming...


DTLC Radio 054 – Personal Holiness Equals Obedience - DTLC Radio

For far too long, in our pursuit to ensure that people understand salvation is by grace through faith, we have neglected teaching Christians to obey. 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the...


DTLC Radio 053 – Three Things To Remember In Your Pursuit of Holiness - DTLC Radio

Three Things to Remember In your pursuit of personal holiness, remembering these three things will help you stay focused and overcome setbacks. Perspective is everything! How you see yourself, the world, and your relationship to God affects and effects every aspect of your life. This is true relative to your pursuit for personal holiness as well. You will discover - if you have not already - that the path of holiness is difficult and challenging. Don't give up or fall back to your old ways...


DTLC Radio 052 – Personal Holiness Is Not Optional - DTLC Radio

Holiness is not optional! To think you can live the Christian life apart from obedience is to be self-deceived. Antinomianism is the theological term for the false perception that grace does not require a life of obedience. Antinomianism is clearly a false doctrine. Hebrews 12:14 says, "Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord." Christians are to "strive for holiness" - it's the evidence of a redeemed life - without which, salvation can be...


DTLC Radio 051 – Personal Holiness Is Rooted in God’s Holiness - DTLC Radio

The single biggest reason for pursuing holiness is because God is Holy. The call to live a holy life - a call on every Christian - is based the fact that God Himself is Holy. Because He is holy, He requires you to be holy. "...but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, 'YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY'.” - 1 Peter 1:15. Obedience Commanded Many people adhere to antinomianism - the heresy of taking the principle of salvation...


DTLC Radio 050 – Pursuit of a Lifetime - DTLC Radio

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We're all aware of these great words written in our Declaration of Independence. They are words we take to heart and fight to the death to protect. But have you ever wondered where happiness is to be found? I suggest it won't be found in the places you're most likely to be looking. Pursue Holiness Holiness is the thing about God that makes Him most "God". It is the attribute of His character that we are commanded to be - YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I...


DTLC Radio 049 – Spring Cleaning for Your Soul - DTLC Radio

Spring is a great time of year! Longer days, warmer temperatures, and brighter days. Opening our doors and windows to let in the light and sun often reveals the dirt we've accumulated over a long, dark winter. Every year at this time people take days or even weekends to go room-by-room and clean. Not only does this look and smell better but it feels better, too. A clean house is a welcoming space where you can relax and unwind. Don't Neglect Your Soul What's good for your home is equally...


DTLC Radio 048 – What Is Christian Coaching? - DTLC Radio

What does a Christian Coach do? How is coaching different from counseling? What can a coach do for me that I cannot do for myself? These questions and others are the topic of this week's podcast. I've recently been asked this question and overheard a similar inquiry by another person and thought now would be a good time to provide an answer. As the description mentions, this is a refresher from a previous podcast. Often, people are confused by the term "life coach" or have heard a variety...


DTLC Radio 047 – Sharing the Gospel With Those Closest To You - DTLC Radio

Sharing the faith and the gospel with those closest to you can be a formidable challenge. It is a misnomer that witnessing to strangers is more difficult. Also, the idea that you have to have an established relationship (i.e. relationship evangelism) before you can share the gospel is equally misleading. The truth is, as Christians, realizing our potential and living a transformed life includes sharing the gospel with everyone. This is especially true for our closest family members and...


DTLC Radio 046 – Watch Your Mouth! (and your posts!) - DTLC Radio

Your language reflects, not just yourself, but the God you claim to serve! Your Language Matters The words you choose and the language you use matters. Part of realizing your true potential and transforming your life is finding consistency. What you say and how you say it must reflect what you claim to believe. In this episode, I admittedly go on a bit of a personal rant. Quite honestly, I'm tired of reading posts, seeing images, and hearing "Christians" use profane, vulgar, and...


DTLC Radio 045 – Eight Keys to Successful Living - DTLC Radio

Foundational to your success is how you define it. Depending on your definition, you may or may not achieve success. The Bible defines success and successful living in dramatically different terms than the world. It is important for your definition to be consistent with God's views of a successful life. The Base While your definition of success must correspond to God's, so your spiritual development must be built on your relationship to Him. Nurturing your spiritual life is imperative to...


DTLC Radio 044 – Keeping Your Word - DTLC Radio

Integrity is a matter of honesty and being a person who keeps their word. It's a matter of dependability. Are you someone others can depend on? This trait is valuable in literally every single relationship you have or will ever have. When you make a promise or otherwise fail to live up to your word, you jeopardize that relationship and let others down. Keeping your word and being a person of integrity builds trust and strengthens the relationship. It Is A Matter of Integrity Many people...
