Jesus did not come to bring peace; He came to bring the truth of God, and through that comes peace.
Throughout the bible, God shows us how we can fight our battles in grace.
When God calls on us to believe in Him, He is asking us to do more than just mentally assent to certain doctrines and decrees. He is commanding us to be so convinced of who He is that we allow the truths of His words to transform our life and mind.
The guys are back from Wyoming, and on today’s show we’re joined by another member of the trip — hip-hop artist, poet and activist Propaganda. We talk about his new book and album series, Terraform, and recap some highlights from our adventures out West. We also preview the epic summer issue of RELEVANT, and for our Quarterlife Conversation (presented by UHSM), mental health expert Dr. Peace Amadi joins us to talk about navigating anxiety with faith. Plus, Slices, RELEVANT News, Jamie’s big media moment and a lot more!
God doesn’t stop loving us when we stray from consistent, meaningful fellowship with Him, or when we don’t live up to our calling, as Paul wrote about in Ephesians 4. Instead, God waits patiently.
Look up, and remember that there is much more than this. Refresh your perspective. Our Creator is big, and our existence is greater than we know.
The simple little things that are so subtle but so beautifully wonderful are drowned out by the complex comings and goings of our modern lives. That’s why God gives us rainy mornings, times when we can sit and be amazed by the little things that happen all around us.
It is important that we see prayer as a two-way conversation, both speaking and listening to God, and to get to know His voice and be open and honest as with a friend.
On this week’s podcast, iconic worship artist David Crowder discusses his new album, “Milk and Honey.” And for this our Quarterlife segment (presented by UHSM), pastor and author Dr. Dharius Daniels shares tips on both dating and breaking up well. Plus, RELEVANT News and Slices covers everything you need to be in the know about, from songs about heartbreak from the newest teen pop sensation to Mark Zuckerberg’s sunscreen problem. You won’t want to miss this!
We listen for the voice of God, and we know He speaks in ways different from the constant noisy assault of pushy salesmen, mindless chatter and marketing schmuck. His voice is different.
It’s time we stop seeking the hand of God and start seeking His face. The Lord is in His holy temple; let all the earth be silent before Him.
Joy demands a bit of effort. It asks that I be satisfied with God‘s sovereign working in my life. It doesn’t offer the same short term emotional pay off that happiness does, but ultimately a change is near the foundational level.
Today, God seeks those within whom He can plant the seeds of His calling, and then He waits to see how each person will respond.

In response to His holiness, we as His chosen ones could live lives that resemble this righteous character. Likewise, because of the fact that He also is the savior of sinners, we respond to God’s revelation in humble living, constantly confessing our sins and living in a state of repentance toward the living Yahweh.
Instead of noticing God’s provision for us, we focus on the problem and our need to escape. God has not forgotten us, and He’ll even grow strawberries in life’s rockiest patches to prove it.
We cherish the absence of pain and do much to guard it. However, God seeks to birth in us something far more valuable than the absence of pain: the fruit of pain’s deep soul-plowing.
We need to reconnect with the romancing God whose story ignites our imagination.
In the desert, we face our weakness, but there we find his strength. We must learn to look to God as he calls out our name.
