At Calvary – Episode 66a – Jesus Gets to Be Lord

Who gets to be God anyway? When we think about salvation and the good news of Jesus, it is easy to forget that a key reason we need Jesus to save us is because we treat God like His opinion is irrelevant. Paul shows us in his life what it looks like to follow Jesus as Lord. Continue reading

At Calvary – Episode 59 – Adoring a Great God

The Greatest of all possible beings. Sounds impressive, right? Yet, often the response to the greatest of all possible beings seems off. Either we shrug our shoulders like it barely matters, or we are so intimidated by the thought that we don’t really approach Him. Is that what God’s faithful people do in the Bible? Is that the way it’s supposed to be? Continue reading
