Are You In The Fight?

Are You In The Fight?

2022-05-2427:29

When it comes to following the Lord, we can be tempted to let ourselves off easy sometimes. We don’t want to put in the work, and we get lazy. In the Old Testament, this even happened to King David. But when we decide to take a “day off” from following God, it can lead to disaster for ourselves and for our families. So Victor and I sat down today to talk about why we need to stay in the fight. In this episode you’ll learn: - How to stay committed to your prayer life. - What happens when you decide to give yourself a “break” from following God. - What Scripture says about staying in the fight. - And more!

Let’s be real; sin is really hard to root out, and we can’t do it alone. But if we aren’t going to Confession regularly, then we’re missing a crucial way to change our lives for the better. So this week, Victor and I discuss our own experiences when it comes to confessing our sins. In this episode you’ll learn:  - Why regular Confession makes you a better man.  - What Scripture has to say about confessing our sins.  - Why it’s important to talk to a priest about our struggles.  - And more!

Let’s be real: Following God is hard. Even after we have decided to commit our lives to Jesus, we often find ourselves going back to the things that enslave us. We can’t keep doing that; God wants to forgive us and free us of our sins, but we have to be willing to leave it all behind. It’s not just a question of wanting it; it’s a question of our willingness to fight our past. In this episode you’ll learn: - Why we need to abandon everything from our past life to follow the Lord. - What we can learn from Scripture about making our conversion authentic. - How to stay committed to the changes in our life. - And more!

There’s a story where a father tells his son that there are two wolves fighting inside him, one fighting for good and one for evil. The son asks “which one will win?” The answer is “whichever one you feed.” I think we are usually torn between doing our own will and doing the Lord’s, and trying to decide whether we will work for our own glory or God’s. Fortunately, the Scriptures have some things to say about that. Victor and I talked about a great example from the Old Testament: King David and King Saul.

When we decide to follow God, it’s super important that we begin to foster a disgust of sin. But sometimes it’s easier to be disgusted at others’ sins rather than our own, and that causes us to not take our own sins seriously. That’s why Victor and I sat down to talk about getting real in our fight against sin, and not giving ourselves a pass when we fall to temptation. In this episode you’ll learn:  - Why we can’t just ignore our own sins.  - How treating confession as a “car wash” really hurts our relationship with God.  - What we should do to foster repentance in our lives.  - And more!

Lent is over! As we start celebrating Easter, it can be a challenge to keep the progress we made during Lent while keeping in mind that we can celebrate what Jesus did for us. So Victor and I decided to talk about how to humbly and obediently move forward from Lent without losing our growth. In this episode you’ll learn: - What comes next when Lent is finished. - How to keep the humility and obedience we learned from Lent. - What we can learn from Jesus’ obedience to His Father. - How to surrender our lives to God. - And more!

Sometimes, after we’ve decided to follow Christ, our past mistakes still haunt us. We beat ourselves up, hold on to past wounds, and won’t forgive ourselves for our sins. So Victor and I sat down this week to talk about moving forward from our past. In this episode you’ll learn: - Why you need to confront your wounds. - How to move forward after being forgiven. - Why you shouldn’t try to punish yourself for your sins. - And more!

Have you ever felt like you’ve "made it" as a Christian? Like you’ve done the work and that you’re all good? That attitude is a real temptation when you’ve decided to become a follower of Jesus, but it actually leads to a complacency that can be really bad for your faith. In this episode, Victor and I sit down to talk about complacency, and how we can fight it in our own lives. In this episode you’ll learn: - Why you’re never finished doing the work of following Jesus. - Why complacency will kill your faith. - What to do to fight feeling like you’ve got it “figured out.” - And more!

Facing Our Wounds

Facing Our Wounds

2022-03-2927:29

One of the things we, as guys, hate to talk about is past wounds. But we all carry pain from our past, and if we don’t deal with it we’re going to hurt other people. Victor and I talked this week about some of the wounds I have in my own life, and what I’m doing to heal from them.

The Heart Of A Slave

The Heart Of A Slave

2022-03-2227:29

We all have sins we struggle with, and most of us have addictions we just can’t seem to get rid of. Lent can be a good time to cleanse our lives, but we first need to realize that we are slaves to these sins. And when you’re a slave to something, it’s really hard to get away from it. That’s why Victor and I decided to talk this week about dealing with the fact that we often have the heart of a slave towards our own sin.

What's Your One Thing?

What's Your One Thing?

2022-03-0827:29

Sometimes it can feel like we just need to get through Lent as easily as we can. But if we succumb to the temptation to take the easy route, we are losing an opportunity to become a better man and a better Christian. That’s why Victor and I sat down to talk about how to make this Lent really worth your time and sacrifice by finding the “one thing” that is most harmful to your relationship with the Lord. Once you know what is standing between you and God, you can get rid of it. That’s what Lent is for. In this episode you’ll learn: - What Lent is really about, and why we give things up. - Why we need to suffer during Lent. - How to pick something that’s really going to make you a better man. - How Jesus helps us in our sufferings. - And more!

Have you ever found yourself in a situation in life where you just don’t know where to go next? I’ve found myself in that situation again and again since I decided to follow the Lord, and the Bible shows us that it’s a constant experience for those who choose to do God’s will. That’s why Victor and I decided to talk about how to deal with uncertainty, and the reasons God allows it. In this episode, we'll talk about:  - What Scripture teaches us about dealing with uncertainty.  - How to keep from letting uncertainty rule our lives through fear.  - What to do when it feels like you’re walking in the dark.  - Why you shouldn’t grasp for control when you feel lost.  - And more!

The Struggle With Hope

The Struggle With Hope

2022-02-2227:29

It isn’t a surprise to anyone that life comes with a lot of challenges. In fact, there are a lot of reasons men feel tempted to give up hope, whether it’s struggling with habitual sin, difficulty in their marriage, or financial problems. That’s why I invited Deacon Jeff into the studio this week to talk about hope! In this episode, you’ll learn:  - How to put your hope in Jesus Christ rather than in other things like money or security.  - How to LIVE a life of hope in Jesus Christ, instead of just saying you have hope in Him.  - How to fight despair when troubles come your way.  - How hope can only come when you are also living with faith and love.  - And more!

This week we finish the three-part series on discipleship with the third step: Follow.
