10 Steps For The New Christian
10 Steps Further was originally created to help those who are just starting out in their Christian faith. After our first few episodes we realized that there were so many other topics we could explore to help people in all aspects of their journey. The topics below were designed specifically for those just getting started. If you have questions about how to read your bible and what prayer is all about or how God has gifted you, give these a listen. They give some great insight for those who are getting started and give some good reminders to those who’ve been around the block a couple of times.
How to Read the Bible
If you are starting this journey of faith, you’ve probably been told that you need to read the bible. Finding a bible is not hard, you probably have one sitting around your house, but where do you start? What do you read first? How can you get past all the confusing concepts? Take a moment to get some insight on how to read your bible.
There are a lot of ideas out there about prayer. Do I need to repeat myself over and over to be heard? Should I find a written prayer and just say that? Does God care about my little problems with all that’s going on in the world? If you want the basics on prayer take a moment to open the conversation.
Have you ever had this thought? “I believe in God, but do I really need to go to church? I can pray in nature and I can hear a message online. How important is church, really?” Take a moment to discover why God created the church to help you be the person God intended you to be.
When was the last time you sang with a bunch of your friends and you weren’t at a Mumford and Son’s concert? It can seem strange to wander into a church and be asked to sing, but worship is an important aspect of growing closer to God. Take a moment to answer the question, what’s with all the singing?
Sharing your Faith
If you grew up in church, you probably heard the scariest word in the bible. Drum roll please…. witness! What if I told you that what appears to be the hardest thing to do as a follower of God is what you already do most naturally. Take a moment to learn how to be on the front row when God does the amazing.
God’s Top Ten
Even if you didn’t grow up in church, you’ve heard about the ten commandments. Turns out they are not a spiritual to do list, but a way to avoid mistakes and live life to the fullest. These are so important we’ve dedicated two podcasts to them.
God has made each of us different and given us unique gifts. Finding out what your gift is and how to use it can bring purpose to your life like you never imagined. Take a moment to see how each person is among the gifted.
The book of Proverbs has some great wisdom about walking through everyday life. On this podcast we are joined by one of our favorite guests, Todd Durkin, personal trainer to the likes of LaDanian Tomlinson and Drew Brees.
One of the first questions we ask ourselves in life is this, “Am I going to be okay.” Turns out many of us never stop asking that question. Are my finances going to be okay? Are my kids going to be okay? Is my health going to be okay? Take a moment to see how God is the answer for our search for security.
