Episodes

Humbled and Forgiven - Exodus 40 - Episode 041

7/3/2019
More
The greatest feelings of dependence and humility often come through times of great suffering. Though we are brought low, God's ultimate goal is to make us whole. It is only by truly seeing the magnitude of our need and the depth of our own sin that we find true rest in God's forgiveness. As Luther wrote, "Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly, for he is victorious over sin, death, and the world" (LW 48:281-282). Thank you for listening to season 2!...

Choose Your Own God - Exodus 32 - Episode 039

6/19/2019
More
The freedom the choose. It is one of those natural rights that needs no argument in the modern day, perhaps especially in the domain of religion. But when given the choice of who or what to worship, what do we choose? In all likelihood, we pick a bigger, better version of what appears uncannily like ourselves. *Modified photo by succo from Pixabay

Created in Our Image - Exodus 32 - Episode 038

6/12/2019
More
Idolatry is more than bowing down before statues. It is the making of a god in our own image and on our own terms. An idol can be physical or, more often than not, a creation of the heart. *Modified photo by Sam Valadi

A Beautiful God

6/5/2019
More
God is a God of beauty, order, and light. The evidence for this is all around us, just there is also evidence of something dark in the world and in ourselves. But God is at work in and for his people—a holy people, called to be a light in this world.

God With Us - Exodus 25 - Episode 036

5/29/2019
More
What does it mean for God to dwell with his people? For one thing, it means that God has extended himself in relationship to us, redeeming and reorienting our lives towards the original Edenic order. Photo by just_a_cheeseburger

A Heart for Truth - Exodus 20 - Episode 035

5/22/2019
More
Truth has fallen on hard times in the modern world. Echo chambers abound, and all of us, if we're honest, love to talk more than listen. To represent God well, however, means to represent him and to represent others well. It is to care deeply for truth. Painting by Gilbert Stuart

Bearing God's Name - Exodus 20 - Episode 033

5/8/2019
More
What does it mean to take the Lord's name in vain? Is it avoiding coarse language? Perhaps, but it is so much more. For better or for worse, Christians are God's mouths and hands to one another and to a watching world. Graphic by Eviatar Bach

Whether we realize it or not, one of the most important things about ourselves, the thing that makes us who we are, is what we give ourselves to in worship. All of us worship something, but God created us to worship Him. Photo by Petr Kratochvil

The God Who Draws Near - Exodus 19 - Episode 031

4/24/2019

God can be terrifying. He is holy after all. But he is also a God of compassion. He is a God who does not leave us in our sin but comes down to us, that we might be brought to him. Painting by Benjamin West

A Consuming Fire - Exodus 19 - Episode 030

4/17/2019
More
Holy, awesome, terrifying. The image of God presented in the Bible is not always the image of God we want or imagine. Nevertheless, Scripture has made it plain that in his presence no evil, no matter how small, can or will stand. Painting by Benjamin West

Manna in the Wilderness - Exodus 16 - Episode 029

4/10/2019

God desires for us to trust and rest in him alone. It is what we were created for. It is also very difficult. Paradoxically, sometimes it takes a season of trial to begin to learn God's goodness, faithfulness, kindness, and rest. Painting by Jean-François Millet

Many of us would love a fresh start—an undo button for life. Our identities are often wrapped up in the things which cause us the deepest shame. It seems inescapable, but Jesus the Lamb of God offers us hope. Painting by Jan van Eyck.

Passed Over

Most of us go through life unable to see through the veil of history. The future is a mystery that only God knows. Sometimes, however, he gives a glimpse, and in the Bible, those glimpses often look like catastrophic judgement. This is an uncomfortable topic, but one that should lead us, ultimately, to rejoice. Painting by David Teniers the Younger.

All of us have a worship problem. "Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord,and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee," Augustine famously penned of God. We were made to worship God, and anything less will ultimately fail to satisfy.

For many people, worship conjures up the sight and sounds of incense, bells, and singing. But worship is something much bigger. Worship happens every day in every sphere of life. All of us worship something, but we were made to worship only one thing: God himself.
