Open Handed Thieves

Merry Christmas!  We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas. We have a special treat for you today. We would like to introduce you to the Two Thieves. These are two guys near St. Louis who started a Podcast a few months ago. We recorded a show together where we discussed a few open handed issues, like what is Reformed Theology, how we started podcasting, and past guests. We hope you enjoy this show, and go check out the Thieves at www.twothievespodcast.com

Today’s coffee is a secret. Kemp threw a wrench in the mix and played a game with us. As it turns out, Wes is the only one who gets it right.

Again, Merry Christmas, everyone. We believe that Christ came on this very special day, or at least its what we celebrate on this day. When he came, he came as God, laid in a manger, fully God and fully man all in one package. We believe in the Virgin Birth, and the perfection of his life. Without those facts, his death would be meaningless. With it, his death means everything.

It is always our hope to get the Gospel out to as many people as possible and you can help us by sharing the show. Word of mouth is the greatest way we will get the show out to the masses. Thank you.

Please pray for us, as we are praying for you.

Kemp, Shaun, Wes and Bob

 


What Matters Most

At some point most Christians will read or hear Luke 2 be read. It is the traditional Christmas story that is performed in every Christmas play. But what does it really say? We are told to not be like the innkeeper, but is there an innkeeper? There are so many times in Christmas we forget what really matters. We focus on the three wisemen, and the angels, and the shepherds, but what about the most important part? The King, the one who came to save the world, the one who thought it was nothing to be equal with God, who left a throne to be laid in a manger. As you spend time in the business of the season, spend a minute and focus on what matters most.

There is one way to the Laymen’s heart and it is to gift us Coffee! That is what Mrs. Stacey did. She gave us a gift of Branson Bean coffee from Branson, Missouri. We tried the Kenyan AA, it was a great strong coffee. Thank you so much Ms. Stacey.

We also sipped on a gift from Ole Dallas brewery. They wanted us to try a Coffee Stout. You’ll have to listen to the show to see how that was received!

Confessions

qtq80-2PJ02jPsalm 51 is one of the greatest Psalms in Scripture. David, after a stint in sin, confesses his heart to the Lord. In doing so taught us what was true confession is. This portion of scripture has blessed many hearts and we believe, when rightly viewed, will bless you, too. It was mentioned in the show that this David, he is a pretty good writer. In this Psalm he walks through the life of a disciple.

Our friend, Mccoy, brought us some local coffee from Cabbalas Coffeeshop called Monsoon Malibu. It was a great coffee. If you are in the Denver area, go check him out.

Jars of Clay

qtq80-nb0qtJ2nd Corinthians 4:7 says “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” In today’s show we walk through this passage and figure out what Paul means. Jars of clay is considered a common vessel that everyone used. You would never hide something valuable in these clays vessels. What is interesting, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the most valuable archeological find in history, were found in clay pots, much like Paul mentioned here.
