I discovered the Podcast app on my phone and for me it was like finding the Fountain of Youth. I work outside landscaping for much of the summer months and as a result I spend many hours doing mindless tasks. Mowing, multching, and raking are a few of my favorite things… NOT! But I have found a mindless job can go by much quicker when your mind isn’t mindless. Just because you are giving your body a workout doesn’t mean your mind can’t get one either. Podcasts are my cognitive and spiritual workout throughout the day. (Time flies when you are having a spiritual workout… is that how it goes?)
My latest listen has been on a past message from Josh Harris at T4G 2010. He spoke on the topics found in his book Dug Down Deep. I have read the book and I thoroughly enjoy his premise and purpose for writing it. But to hear the message of the book in his own words through the method of a powerful sermon was something else entirely. I enjoyed this and I hope you will too.
His main thrust is to take seriously your responsibility to teach others how to properly build their lives on good Christ-centered doctrine so when the winds and waves come their house will stand. He also takes a deeper look at the story of the Two Builders. It is much more than just a simple dichotomy between saved=rock and unsaved=sand.
