A few weeks back we discussed the cultural phenomena Game of Thrones and whether it’s acceptable for followers of Jesus to be watching it. This created quite the stir and generated a ton of feedback/comments/and robust dialogue. In this week’s podcast we revisited the topic and dove deeper into some of the key issues that came up.

This episode of the Provoke and Inspire Podcast features Nashville producer/songwriter Joshua Silverberg. He shares his amazing stories of praying for people to be healed and seeing God move in power. We dig into some of the skepticism surrounding the supernatural and ask questions like “Does God desire for every person to be healed?” and “What do we say to someone who has never experienced God’s healing despite years of prayer?”
Don’t miss this critical conversation!
With literally millions of people watching and talking about Game of Thrones, the regulars felt it was important to raise the question: “Where do we, as followers of Jesus, draw the line in deciding which movies or series we shouldn't watch?” Their intense discussion revolves around the question of whether this decision simply comes down to a personal choice between an individual and God, or if adopting that mentality might be another form of relativism.
But don’t worry, it’s not all intense! David will still make you laugh (or cringe) with his latest Random Story!
Continuing in their series on how to reach the secular world, the regulars talk about the need for having God’s heart. They look at the importance of making the decision to love our neighbors and that our actions can’t just be based on whether we feel something or not. They then discuss what it really means to have God’s broken heart for the world and how without it, we are really just being religious in our attempts to reach people for Jesus.
You’ve heard the regulars talk about the importance of praying and seeking God many times on this podcast, but what does that look like? How do we seek God with a desperate heart?
Ben, Chad, David and Luke continue the discussion around this subject and why it seems to have become a dead ritual. They share their personal experiences on the matter and then give some practical examples of how you can grow in your personal prayer life.
Oh yes… and David returns to Virgin Man in his Random Story…
While in Hawaii for a Provoke&Inspire conference, David, Chad and Ben sit down with Matty (Memphis May Fire) and Brittany Mullins (Beneath The Skin) who share their stories, Matty's struggle with anxiety and panic attacks and how God has been working through their lives to tell others about Jesus.
In this week’s edition of the Provoke and Inspire Podcast, the guys turn their attention from understanding the secular culture to how to go about reaching them. They dive into the critical topic of prayer and ask the question “why is it that for so many of us prayer has become a dead ritual?” This is a crucial conversation for anyone wanting to reach the secular world for Jesus!
Oh and David relives the infamous ‘no sex tax’ kerfuffle.
Jodi and Courtney Pierce come on the podcast to talk about Rachel Hollis’ latest book, Girl Stop Apologizing. They look at some of the positives of this self-help book along with the importance of having godly ambition, while also discussing the dangers of a mentality that says: “You can do anything you want in life, if you just work hard enough.”
