Transformed #288: God Is Able!

Date April 3, 2016

God is Able 2

Welcome to the Transformed Podcast. Today we start a new chapter in the podcast as Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, begins his relationship with Woodland Drive Baptist Church in Visalia, CA (Visalia – first I is long – sounds like “eye”) … which culminated in a call to be their Lead Pastor beginning February 1 of this year.

In his introduction message there, Pastor Matt speaks on the bedrock issue of faith: God is Able! Drawing from the life of Abraham, this stirring message calls all of us to trust God when there is no visible reason to. Let’s open our Bibles to Genesis 15 and prepare ourselves for a faith lift!

About Today’s Lesson

You have been listening to Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, lead pastor at Woodland Drive Baptist Church in Visalia, CA.

As God’s people, we are seeking to become a multi-generational, multi-ethnic church that reflects the demographic of our neighborhood, our community, our county, and our state while holding firmly to the teachings of the Bible and adhering to the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message.

We are seeking to grow – not only numerically but also spiritually.

We are seeking to reach people with the Word of God.

We are seeking to become the church that Christ has called us to be and which will bring Glory to the name of our Lord and Savior.

We encourage you to consider checking out our ministry at our website – that’s www.woodlanddrivebaptist.org. Of course, we would love to have you worship with us any weekend. Times and address are on our website.

Today’s episode was recorded live and edited by Melodee Smith in Visalia, 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!

What are you reading this Spring? 

If you would like to see the power of God work in real life difficulties, we suggest you read Hope Enabler, written by Dr. Smith’s wife, Melodee, this summer.

Hope Enabler is the real life story of one Christian parent’s struggle with a runaway child and the hope that God enabled her to have during the darkest moments of that struggle. Through God’s word and her own personal testimony Melodee Smith shows how her relationship with God was strengthened despite the perils she faced.

Melodee Joy Smith is a pastor’s wife ministering in Southern California. Alongside her husband, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith she’s counseled families, spoke at conferences and trained Christian leaders. She hopes this book can be a comfort to other Christians who are struggling with seemingly impossible situations.
