In this episode, Abidan Paul Shah will be talking with Dr. David Alan Black about his newest book "Running My Race: Reflections on Life, Loss, Aging, and Forty Years of Teaching." It's about learning to deal with the pains of life in a way that draws us closer to the heart of God. Both laypeople and scholars will benefit from this book.
This weekend I'm preaching the second message in our series "Keeping Intimacy in Marriage." In this message, we will talk about the differences between men and women. God made us different for a reason. A happy marriage is one that understands the differences in our God-given roles.
What’s amazing to me is that right after raising the bar on anger, Jesus turns towards marriage. In the Old Testament adultery was sin but Jesus declared lust to be no less than adultery! Bottom line: Marital intimacy is a sacred bond. When we share it indiscriminately outside of marriage, we sin against God.
