  1. I think it’s a great ministry that you all are doing. I’m sure that its a blessing to all of those kids listening out there.

    PTL that God’s using you for this! I hope that God will move in a mighty way through this podcast!

  2. Dear SC Crew,

    When I first heard this podcast I told everybody that it was trashy and that God would not work through a bunch of kids that didn’t know how to preach at all. But then I listened to Episode 003 and I found how great God works through empty vessels that are completely submitted to His will. I grabbed a stack of my brothers Sharpening Character business cards and started handing them out to everybody I knew.

    Please continue to spread the gospel each week through this minstry!

  3. Really enjoyed this 🙂 Great advice here from Dr Martin. …and plan to go look at his website ! Really enjoyed his encouragement for young men !! Thank you !

  4. You guys are doing wonderful, thank you for taking the time to put these together each week and aid with the daily readings!

    True story- as Dr. Martin was talking about handing out tracts in episode 23, possibly to an individual working in a toll booth, I was literally listening to the podcast while handing money to the toll booth operator!! I could not believe it.

    I believe that by listening to the SC podcast God used the message and immediate circumstances to get my attention in an area that I’m lacking, witnessing to others. What a blessing, keep up the great ministry!

    • Thank you Corey, for the encouragement with what you said about the toll booth! Praise the Lord for using circumstances in that way!

  5. Hi guys, I just finished listening to this episode and then sat down to eat my cereal and read my Bible. The second verse I read was “The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.” This seemed to fit so well with what Dr. Martin said about the creatures that evolutionists don’t mention in books and articles. These great works are an embarrassment to them because they don’t have pleasure in God and His fascinating designs. Conversely, those of us who love God DO have pleasure in admiring what our heavenly Father has designed. If we seek them out, we will draw closer to Him by understanding how great He is and we will want to share the fascinating information with others. Sometimes even other believers need to have their faith bolstered. There was a sort of mini revival at our church a couple of years ago when one young man realized that he wasn’t really saved and so he repented of his sins and was baptized as a public telling of his new relationship with Christ. Over the next seven weeks or so, other young people examined their hearts and followed his example. One mother even came forward also. So don’t hesitate to constantly share the works of the Lord with your friends; they may be brought to Christ!

  6. One other thought: God isn’t just a master designer. He is a master General with a grand plan to conquer the world through kindness. Sadly, some will reject His kindness and even say it is unkind. But we can be absolutely sure down to the soles of our feet that He is real and deserving of our service in His army because He has a master plan which is in need of soldiers. If you are truly trusting Him, He will supply the courage and direction. As Wes said, we have to learn to stay under authority. Those who have gone before in the battles of life have experience to recognize the Devil’s traps. They are God’s captains and we need to recognize those whom the Lord has commissioned to guide the new recruits. When we humbly work with each other, we can carry out the Lord’s plan. His plan is as beautifully designed as the animals and plants we can see with our eyes.
