Transformed Episode #230: Christmas Overrides Our Politicians!

Date December 14, 2014

Who’s in charge, really?

Is it Washington, Moscow or Tehran? For thousands of years governments have functioned under the illusion that they are the authority on earth … the greater the country, the greater the power.

Welcome to the Transformed Podcast.

Into that mix two millennia ago, God revealed that He is in charge of all, even the largest, powers on Earth at any given time. As the Lord of Eternity caused the Emperor of Rome to accommodate His timing, will and purposes, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, director of Eagles In Leadership, shows us God’s awesome nature and authority as He manages and manipulates even the “greatest” officials of the 1st Century.

Join us now as we realize that Christmas, the coming of the King of kings and Lord of lords, reminds us afresh: God can do anything … no matter who stands in His way!

 

Christmas Is Right Around the Corner! 

You know, with Christmas right around the corner, you are probably doing what we, at Eagles In Leadership, are doing … planning your Christmas gift list.

This year, let us suggest giving a gift that gives EVERY day of the New Year!

Dr. Smith has written two daily devotionals that cover every day of the coming year … allowing you to give the gift that keeps on giving God’s Word and His encouragement in the lives of your family and friends.

In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.

In His Image explores God’s great love for humanity from every book of the Bible. From the creation of Genesis to the culmination in Revelation, God’s love shines through every page. Never is this ever clearer than in the times of Israel’s great betrayal of their God. His passionate pursuit of His children can be heard dripping from his voice as He calls them (and us by proxy) back to His shelter and protection.

You can order your copy In His Image or In His Presence from Amazon at the Eagles In Leadership website by clicking the appropriate link on the right hand side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.

 

Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California.

And now, until next time, we are praying you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!

Why doesn’t God answer us quickly? Isn’t He the one who told us to, Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full”? (John 16:24, ESV) Well, what’s wrong then? We’ve been asking and nothing’s been happening.

Let’s open to Luke 18 and join this final study on Overcoming Faith …

Transformed Episode #227: Forgive – When My Faith Must Grow

Date November 16, 2014

Faith-Growing-your-913x250

Welcome back to the Transformed Podcast.

Forgiveness can be one of the hardest actions in life. We sincerely know and believe the other person does not deserve the gift of forgiveness. And then, when we extend such mercy and grace, we discover that they offend us again, and seemingly without having learned anything from our previous wound.

As we listen today to Jesus explain how we are to forgive we are reminded that forgiveness is a faith issue, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, CA reminds us that the more we are called to forgive, the more our faith must grow in order to overcome.

Let’s join them in this study …

Transformed Episode #226: Fear – When My Faith is Small

Date November 9, 2014

Fear is the greatest weapon to those who would stand up against truth and justice.

Welcome to a new series of the Transformed Podcast.

Today we begin to talk about, “Overcoming Faith!” Perhaps you love these words from the old hymn,

 

Faith is the victory! Faith is the victory!


O glorious victory, that overcomes the world.

 

Unfortunately, Jesus tells us that fear is an evidence of a lack of faith.

Fear is crippling … it paralyzes your heart and soul and stops your forward advance at the moment and in life.

In today’s study, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, CA explores that all too familiar world of fear and discovers how we can shed the shaking that accompanies it. Let’s join them as we step into a life of courageous, overcoming faith!
