Transform: Poor In Spirit Business People

Transform Square

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3) “Poor in spirit” and “business success” don’t seem to fit together But Jesus said that the poor in spirit would actually be blessed. Granted, that’s not necessarily financial or physical blessing that He’s promising, but at the very least we can say that you’ll be better off in the end if you’re blessed, than if you are not. And being “poor in spirit” is the way to receive that blessing. In today’s business … [Read more...]

An Examined Life with Jeff Allen: Sex Addiction with T.C. Ryan


[display_podcast] Joining our show this week is someone whom I have admired from afar for quite some time now. Author of “Ashamed No More: A Pastor’s Journey Through Sex Addiction” – an extremely powerful book that I have read three times - Thomas “TC” Ryan and I worked at a conference together recently and I couldn’t be more excited to talk about life with him!

[display_podcast] They say that confession is good for the soul. So here goes: I confess that I'm feeling terribly conflicted about the passage we discuss in this PODCAST. On the one hand, this is as sober and serious as it gets, Jesus' climax to His signature sermon. Yet on the other hand, I find myself strangely comforted by His words. Comforted because they explain SO MUCH of what we see done today in Jesus' name. You see, Jesus said this at the end of His Sermon on the Mount: 21 “Not eve … [Read more...]

They shared the same concern.The identically same concern that Jesus addressed rather pointedly here in this PODCAST. Matthew 7:15-2015 Watch out for false prophets! They dress up like sheep, but inside they are wolves who have come to attack you. 16 You can tell what they are by what they do. No one picks grapes or figs from thornbushes. 17 A good tree produces good fruit, a … [Read more...]
