Episode 10: Knowing God Part One: "I Want to Know Him"

Loving God begins with knowing God. This was the Apostle Paul’s “purpose” statement: “I want to know Him,” but it is not a head knowledge, it’s a HEART knowledge. To know him so intimately from the power of His resurrection to the sharing of His suffering…

Philippians 3:10

Episode 9: Brokenness #3: At the End of Self…is Jesus

This podcast looks at the four stages of brokenness in the Apostle Paul’s life: 1) As Saul prior to Damascus, where he knew scriptures, but didn’t know God. 2) At Damascus, where he received some revelation. 3) Romans 7 :24-25 when he cries, “Wretched Man that I am”. And 4) In Galatians 2:20 when Paul says, “I am crucified with Christ, but nevertheless I live.” In brokenness he found life.

Galatians 2:20

Episode 7: Brokenness #1: Victory in Brokenness

When God, the Father, asks, “Where is My dwelling place? Where is my rest?”, the answer is: “In you.”  In this podcast we look how brokenness leads us to a place where we are at peace with God, a place of rest for God. Brokenness is God’s work, but we must allow it to happen.

Isaiah 66:1-3

Episode 6: Taking on the Nature of a Servant

Servanthood is not only doing what is right and good, but also doing it in the power of the Holy Spirit. Being a servant is more than what you do, it’s why you do it and how you do it. It’s not just the obedience, it’s also carrying out the act of service in the Spirit, establishing both the heart and motives of God in how we serve.

Isaiah 42:1

Episode 5: Praying for the Persecuted Church

SageTalk pauses to consider and pray for believers worldwide who are being persecuted for their faith. Al and Paul share numerous stories of friends and co-laborers around the world who have been denied access to property and education, who have been beaten, even martyred for their faith. When one  suffers, the body of Christ suffers.

Hebrews 13:3

Episode 2: Transformation: Conforming to the Image of Jesus

We long for greater degrees of experiencing spiritual transformation, but we are often anxious when we don’t see more. Al and Paul discuss God’s desire for us to be conformed to the image of His Son, and how God has graciously given His provision which makes this possible.
