S2 E17: Redemptive Suffering

Sat Sep 22 2018 (01:11:46)

Special Guest Derek Shore

Suffering can serve a purpose if we seek the purpose in our suffering. The Lord doesn't waste pain, he uses it. Redemptive suffering is the idea that God will use the hard times, the trials, the pains in our lives to bring about redemption, growth and maturity in Christ. Suffering produces, it's not useless.

Ecology, Discipline, Creation, Nature, and more.

"One must realize that a work of art says exponentially more about the creator than the creation." We know the heart and character of God fully through his Word become flesh. We are also gifted with a natural world revealing God's creativity, wonder, beauty, and power. As we study the natural world, its systems and functions, it teaches us things about the spiritual life. It teaches us things about who we are and how we are designed. To become more like Christ and to be formed in His image, ther ...

S2 E15: Humility

Sat Aug 25 2018 (57:08)

A Prerequisite to Maturity.

No one can say he or she knows all things about all things. We all are constantly growing, learning, and maturing. In order for growth to occur, we have to admit that we do not know it all, nor do we have it all figured out. Casey and Jason are sans-guest for the first time since early in Season 1. They hash out some thoughts on humility.Thank you for your continued support of the Salty Dogs Podcast!

S2 E13 : Living As Sons Of God

Sat Jul 28 2018 (01:04:06)

Slaves & Orphans VS. Sons Mentality

We're SONS OF GOD! The Christian life is a glorious, freedom-filled life we get to live in our true identity as sons in a deep, love relationship with the Father. Unfortunately, it is possible to continue to live in slavery as Christians, and many do live this way. The way we think and act has a lot to say about what we believe about who God is, and who we are as Christians. Christine Smith is back from Season 1, and Jason's wife Kimberly Villanueva jumps on as first time guest!Download the reso ...

S2 E12 : The Father's Heart

Sat Jul 14 2018 (01:02:01)

Knowing the Heart & Mind of God

See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! 1 John 3:1aThere is much to know about how the Father sees us and loves us as his children.

The Father's heart for us is so vast! James & Stephanie Weishaar join us and share some of their experience and wisdom on this topi ...

What's the fullness of the purpose of the Sunday morning gathering?

The Sunday morning gathering is often seen as a central piece of the Christian life. While important, and serving a very important function, it can potentially become the main thing while other facets of the Christian life and community can be minimized and even neglected.

Salty Dogs Meaning & Purpose

"Salty Dog" refers to those who've been at sea for a long time. It means there are those who've been through the storm, the rough waters, the voyage seemingly without end. These are the ones we can learn from the most. When you stop learning, you stop growing. Our goal is to glean from the wisdom and experience from others as we continue to grow in our faith and mission in Jesus Christ. The Salty Dogs podcast comes out of Wichita, KS and is a ministry of TheSourceWichita.com. Support us on Patr ...
