Tuesday, August 31, 2010Let It Go: Come Home From YOur Guilt Trip Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

God's people are lugging around a tremendous amount of unwarranted guilt and inferiority. Christians everywhere beat themselves up over sins that their heavenly Father has long since forgiven. They torture themselves-pining over bad choices, lost opportunities, dismal failures-and in many cases even question their salvation. "Let It Go," (Standard, ISBN # 0-7847-2364-7), says pastor Mark Atteberry. With his customary mix of humor and heart, Atteberry shows you the way to let go of inferiority, criticism, and shame, and offers a lifeline for emotionally defeated Christians to claim-or perhaps reclaim-the joy of their salvation.

Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true, but many are false. James Bryan Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. In fact, Smith declares during Monday's encore "Mid-Morning", the most important thing about a person is what they think about God. In "The Good and Beautiful God" (InterVarsity, ISBSN # 0-8308-3531-8), Smith invites you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Then he'll lead you through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in your body and soul as well as your mind.
