I'm not sure if it is the pace of my life, or something to do with forgetfulness, perhaps even modesty, but I hardly ever listen to our own materials once we've recorded them. Especially our podcasts. My loss. Because yesterday, after receiving a number of heartfelt and profound responses to our recent series, I decied to tune in myself, as a listener.
I was blown away.
Really - God has this unique ability to invade somewhere between words spoken, files edited and the listening experience. He comes, he indwells, he inhabits, taking something that seems so obvious and making it resonate with the Kingdom.
We are in the midst of a series on Leadership - which in itself is a God thing. I mean...yawn. Boring. At least to me. I would never have suggested to the gang here, "Hey - let's do a series on leadership!" But during a time of listening prayer, back in September, we asked Jesus what he wanted to bring to his people through our podcasts and he said, "talk about leadership." So we did...for ten podcasts. We've talked about good experiences and bad, talked about our longing for leaders in the church, explored why they seem so rare and what we typically substitute for godly leadership.
Most of all, we've talked about God's longing to unite his scattered people under spiritual fathers and mothers, what they look like and how to find them. It has been a very rich experience and the feedback is off the charts.
Guess Jesus struck a nerve.
If you haven't listened to the Ransomed Heart podcast in a while (or ever), I think you'll find yourself intrigued, drawn in and spoken to in very rich ways. Come and join us. You can find our podcasts on our new app, or click on the "More" tab at the top of this page, and choose "podcast."
It'll do your heart good.
