PODCAST: Fearless Living

Presented on 1/31/2016 by Pastor Steve Shields at Curwensville Alliance

This is one fearless guy.

Few of us would be brave enough (or insane enough) to run that course. And while it’s good to have a well-reasoned fear of events like this, it is a bad thing to make your life-decisions from the platform of fear.

Faith – it’s an important concept in our relationship with God, right?

For years, I believe the opposite of faith was doubt. But these days, I feel the opposite of faith is fear. Fear and mistrust go hand in hand. So if I am afraid, I probably am struggling to trust — maybe even to trust God.

Think of the places you are most afraid. I am afraid when I drive in the snow. Not because of myself. I trust my own driving. I am afraid because I don’t trust other drivers. If I trusted them, I’d have little fear. Lack of trust plays a major role in the life marked by fear.

The Bible teaches that perfect love casts out all fear. Why? Because love creates trust.

And when we trust, we can be fearless.

This podcast speaks about living fearlessly.

PODCAST: What Do Your Prayers Say?

Presented on 1/24/2016 at Curwensville Alliance by Pastor Steve Shields

 

I go to the doctor every year for a physical examination. She runs tests, pokes me, asks a lot of questions, gives me a report, and sends me on my way. It’s a good thing to do, because we are concerned about our physical well-being.

What would it be like to go in for a spiritual examination? What would it be like to have someone run tests, poke you, ask you spiritually probing questions, and give you a report? You can do that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, for yourself.

This podcast tells you a way to give yourself a spiritual examination.

PODCAST: The Journey of a Christ-follower

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 1/17/2016 by Pastor Steve Shields

Life is a journey, right? You hear that, from time to time, along your journey. People say that for a number of reasons; one being that we often forget to notice what’s around us as we focus on the end goal.

Your spiritual life is a journey. It has an goal — a prize, according to Paul. But there are things along the way that you must not overlook as you pursue the prize.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve looks at a couple essentials Christ-followers need to focus upon as they journey with Jesus.
