The Podcast

Welcome to my brand new podcast: Live Like It’s True!

Please join my guests and me as we talk about our favorite jaw-dropping stories of the Bible, and the God who invites us all to live like the story is true.  

In this first season, we’re discussing the stories of Jesus. What will we learn as we encounter the man who fed five thousand with one lunch, who forgave a paralyzed man’s sins, and who called Lazareth out of the tomb? What overarching story about God is being told? And what difference does it make if that story is true?

Come join us for conversations devoted to helping you know the story, share the story and live the story.  

The Podcast

Join my guests and me as we talk about our favorite jaw-dropping stories of the Bible, and the God who invites us all to live like the story is true.  

In this first season, we’re discussing the Stories of Jesus. What difference does it make that Jesus forgave the sins of the paralyzed man first? What does it mean that Jesus had the longest recorded theological conversation wtih—not only a woman, but an outcast? How does it change things to know that a man named Lazarus walked out of his tomb? 

Do you know these stories? Do you live like they’re true? 

Come join me for a series of conversations at Live Like It’s True, devoted to helping you know the story, share the story and live the story!  

I had planned to be in Arkansas this weekend, but God had other plans. I’m sad to have missed what sounds like an amazing women’s conference at East Union Church in Hensley, AR! (Rain check? I was soooo looking forward to it!)

But I’m grateful to be feeling so much better after a week of Covid. Nice to be sitting in the living room with my guys—and with the fireplace on for the first time this year. 🍁

“We had a situation where way more kids came than we knew would come and we were coming down to the bottom of the pot. I could not imagine sending those kids home without food, so we laid our hands over the pot of beans and rice which barely had anything left and prayed…”⁠⠀

Stuck in traffic, on my way to speak at a retreat this weekend. Reminding myself that even though I forgot to paint my nails, I’m going to be late, I worry that what I’m planning to say won’t be riveting enough… God is enough! Thanks for this reminder, at @ericawiggenhorn !

What difference does it make to know that Jesus told the paralyzed man that his sins were forgiven FIRST? Why does it matter that Jesus had the longest recorded theological conversation with—not only a woman, but an outcast? What does it mean for you and me to know that Lazarus walked out of his tomb?⠀

“And I remember praying.. God I don't believe that praying for her is enough. I don't believe it's enough. Carrying this to you, just me and you in prayer doesn't feel good enough. He exposed in me that I really didn't value intercessory prayer.”@kellyneedham⁠⠀

Would you be willing to carry your friend up onto a roof, to get her to Jesus? What if praying for your friend is the equivalent of bringing her—on a stretcher—to Jesus? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In Episode 1 of Live Like It’s True Podcast (woo hoo!), we’re focusing on the True Stories of Jesus. In this episode, I'm joined by Kelly Needham to discuss the True Story on The Roof! It's the story of the paralytic, whose four friends carried him on a stretcher and dug up a roof to lower him down to Jesus.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Whether writing or speaking, Kelly’s aim is to convince as many people as possible that nothing compares to knowing Jesus. Kelly is married to singer/songwriter and speaker Jimmy Needham, and is the author of Friendish: Reclaiming Real Friendship in a Culture of Confusion.
