SC 205: Adventures in Creation Evangelism – Dr. Jobe Martin

When we think about sharing God’s love with others, we probably think about evangelism. But does science have a place in evangelism, and sharing the gospel?

This week on the podcast, we’ve got a special interview with Dr. Jobe Martin, a dentist-turned-evangelist, sharing about his “adventures in creation evangelism,” and how the Creation around us attests to the power of God. All that and more, on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

SC 202: Gratitude & Glory

Have you ever thought about *why* we should be thankful in the first place? After all, it’s something we’re told is “good” and “right” to do—and even that the Bible commands it. But what’s the “why” behind it? There’s a simple answer, but perhaps not what you’re thinking…

This week on the podcast, join Andrew as he looks at a couple of very interesting passages regarding gratitude and thankfulness. We’ll also be announcing a way for you to get involved in our upcoming Anniversary Special, a hint about something special coming in December, and a whole lot more.

SC 201: Waist Deep in Quail

Have you ever been around someone who seems to do nothing but complain about things, even if there’s nothing actually wrong? How would you describe that person? Annoying? Unappreciative? What about Prideful? Have you ever been that person at times?

This week on the podcast, we’re going to take a look at perhaps one of the most humorous–and humbling–accounts in all of the Bible; the story of the Israelites getting “buried in quail” in the wilderness. Along the way, we’ll look at some lessons to learn about thankfulness, contentment, and how important it is to make sure we’re being humble and thankful before God for what He’s done in our lives. That’s all on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

SC 198: Be Still and Know, Pt. 2: Trusting Through the Darkroom

“Be Still and Know.” We probably all love that phrase–we memorize it, paint it on walls, put it in church bulletins, and so forth, all as reminders to trust God. But have we ever stopped to think about what that verse *really* means?

This week on the podcast, we’re going to take a deep dive in Psalm 46 and perhaps one of the most familiar phrases in all of God’s Word. Join Andrew as he examines “…Know,” and continuing our look at the crucially important commands this passage entails for our relationships with God.
