Today we dive deep with John Mark Comer, author of "Practicing the Way," exploring transformative insights that bridge the gap between our financial lives and our journey with Jesus.

Why You Should Listen:

  • Why “Christian” Doesn’t Mean What You Thought & the Invitation Jesus is Really Offering

  • This one thing heals wounds better than church, Bible study, and therapy

  • The mistake most Christians make when praying

  • Why following Jesus requires you to accept that you will have many unlived lives

  • And a lot more...

🔍 Key Highlights:

  • The Apprentice vs. the Christian: We unpack the powerful idea that the term "Christian" might not fully capture the depth of following Jesus. Instead, we explore the concept of being an apprentice to Jesus, embracing learning and growth in a way that transforms our entire life.

  • The Misuse of the Word "Christian": John Mark Comer sheds light on how the term "Christian" has been diluted in modern Western culture, often disconnected from the disciple-making Jesus envisioned.

  • The Power of God's Love: We discuss how meditating on God's love can profoundly change us, more than decades of striving to be more loving could ever achieve.

  • The Role of Spiritual Practices: The conversation takes a dive into practical steps and spiritual practices that can help us access the grace and power of God in our lives, moving beyond knowledge to a lived experience of God's love.

  • The Importance of Prayer: We challenge the common approach to prayer as a one-sided conversation, encouraging a deeper, contemplative engagement with God that transcends words.

  • The Concept of Renunciation: A thought-provoking discussion on the necessity of renunciation in our lives, especially in the context of discipleship, vocation, and family, highlighting the need to live in alignment with our deepest values.

  • Choosing the Way of Jesus: An exploration of how embracing the way of Jesus involves making tough choices about how we live, work, and relate to others, prioritizing what truly matters over societal expectations.
