Our Listening Confidant

Have you ever wished for someone with a good listening ear - someone who you could trust with any feeling or information with absolute confidence that your secrets would not be broadcast abroad? We all need this kind of intimacy and freedom to be vulnerable. The good news is that you have a Father in heaven who wants to be your Confidant. Once you discover the joy and the empowerment that comes through a meaningful prayer experience, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. But how should one pray? What does meaningful prayer look like? Jesus’ disciples asked Him very similar questions. This episode in the Portraits of Jesus series explores the prayer life of Jesus Himself as a case study in meaningful and effective prayer.

Our Suffering Messiah

Have you ever asked where God is in the midst of tragedy, pain, or loss? Sometimes it’s difficult to see how there could possibly be a loving God when one is confronted with the horrific scenes of human life that play themselves out on planet Earth every day. Does God really care? If so, where is He when you’re hurting? Is God in anyway affected by this world’s sin and brokenness. The answer to these questions is absolutely YES! In this episode in the Portraits of Jesus series, Ps Adrian Webster unpacks a few Biblical passages that will reveal key concepts from the last few hours of Christ’s life as He was dying on the cross. Indeed sin, suffering, death and brokenness have all affected God in a profound, personal, first-hand manner. This amazing love and grace provide the strength to carry on despite this life’s tragedies.
