- #182 - Servant Leadership
Jesus demonstrated the most extreme level of servant leadership... He didn't come to be served but to serve and later His life down for the sake of the world. He demonstrated servant leadership and then called on His disciples to do the same. This kind of selflessness and humility is so needed in our world today. In fact, creation is desperately longing for the people of God to recognize their authority and to use that authority not to exalt themselves but to serve like Jesus. Jesus didn't teach us to condemn the world. He taught us to love so well that people will ask, "What must I do to be saved?"

- #181 - Leaning Into God's Discipline (featuring Denisse Lamastra)
In this episode, Duke and Denisse Lamastra tackle issues like walking in forgiveness, responding to the Lord in obedience, and enduring correction. It isn't always easy or pleasant but every single time God requires something from us or calls us to a new level of faith, obedience, etc, it is because He wants us to grow and move into a greater level of freedom. There is something extremely freeing about inviting correction from the Lord... when we don't reject or fight against His discipline but actually lean into it.

- #180 - He Gets Us
If you watched the SuperBowl this weekend you probably saw the commercial "He Gets Us". The ad sparked a ton of controversy. Many Christians are opposed to the idea of presenting Jesus in the light of someone who "Gets everyone" and would go out of His way to wash the feet of sinners and broken people. In this episode we'll consider the different viewpoints and examine the heart behind the campaign from a biblical perspective.

- #178 - Intrusive Thoughts
Do you ever struggle with Intrusive thoughts? You know... those thoughts that seem to come from out of nowhere that you can't seem to get rid of? It happens to EVERYONE. The problem many people face is they don't recognize that just because those thoughts entered their mind does NOT mean those thoughts belong there! As a child of God, you have been given authority over every negative, Intrusive, destructive thought that comes into your mind. You don't have to put up with those Intrusive thoughts any longer!
In this episode we are delving into some scripture passages that map out our authority as believers over our thought life. The most important conversation you'll have today is the one between your own ears, and in this episode I'm sharing Biblically how to engage in self-talk (meditation) that empowers and brings life.

Yesterday (October 31st) on The Joe Rogan Experience, Elon Musk discussed his concerns related to the developing snd programming of Artificial Intelligence networks by individuals who don't have a value for human life.

It's been a few weeks since I've been able to release an episode, so two things are happening:
- I wanted to share some thoughts on the war that broke out in Israel stemming from the terrorists attacks of October 7th and discuss why it is imperative that we pray for the nation of Israel.
- I am also going to share out of a personal encounter I had with the Lord recently. He spoke some things to me that helped me move into a greater level of freedom in my walk with Him. Maybe it will do the same for you.
