Welcome to the Transformed podcast.
In a day when people say they don’t need “organized religion,” our final study today shows us that the true disciple of Jesus simply cannot exist apart from the support group God has given them: the local church!
As we open our Bibles to John 15, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California explains that if we are to love and be loved by our spiritual family with the care and compassion of Jesus, we will need to reach around them with these four daily practices.
And with that final prayer, Dr. Smith calls us to love the people in our faith community just as Jesus loves us.
Perhaps you would you consider sharing this message with a friend? God longs to release the captives of our culture into the freedom of faith. Thank you!
If you would like to explore how to enjoy a deeper life with God, one that God is pleased with, Dr. Smith has written a daily devotional book that will help you do just that!
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.
You can order a copy of In His Presence from Amazon by clicking the link on the side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.
Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.
And now, until next time, we are praying that 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!
