TD Fri. – “Food For Thought ’18” is Over – Now What?

2018 FFT

Hey TD!

Last Saturday night, high schoolers came to Food For Thought ’18 from all over the SGV to have a great time over great food and to engage in great open, honest, and safe dialogue that was spurred on by a great talk given by Daniel. Conversations were vibrant and alive as people stayed well past the designated finish time to continue discussing things of significance. But now what do we do, now that FFT is over?

Listen to FFT ’18 message here: “Identified – FFT ’18” – Daniel (mp3 message)

This Friday night at TD, we’ll learn how to continue the conversations meaningfully and respectfully, yet effectively in His Name.  We’ll work on next steps to take to not only continue the conversations with your friends, but to do so in a way that leaves everyone feeling refreshed and challenged at the same time.

See you Friday!

Passion Week Podcasts: Good Friday – “The Cross: An Excruciating Glory”

Hey TD!

Well, today marks our final Passion Week podcast.  It’s the one Daniel saved for the culmination of this series.  It’s a life-altering piece of teaching that should leave you in a good and healthy place.

We pray that you will really take this weekend to give your ALL to the Lord – all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength – in heart-rending surrender and worship.

Perhaps you can take protracted times of Bible study, prayer, singing, learning, podcast listening :), and serving Him.  Whatever it takes to get your soul set on Him, do it … and enjoy! – Arthur

Passion Week Podcasts: Day 4 – “The Cross: A Father’s Love”

Hey TD!

Today’s podcast is personal as I share some of my testimony of how I came to Christ … through the love of my late father.  It’s the love of a father that we will focus on today, specifically, the love the Heavenly Father has for His Son.  Today’s teaching may shock you a bit, but the truth of it needs to be heard and known, for it puts everyone in their rightful place.

As usual, after listening, I encourage you to spend time in heartfelt prayer to the Lord, surrendering your life to the One who surrendered His Son for you. – Arthur

Passion Week Podcasts: Day 3 – “The Meaning of the Atonement”

(“The Meaning of the Atonement” – mp3)

Hey TD!

I can’t think of a better thing to do during Passion Week than to focus on the cross and learn about what really happened there.  If Jesus went to the cross, endured that for us, and secured for us what we could not secure on our own, the very least we can do is to spend time and effort to learn and appreciate what He’s done for us.  That’s what these 10 minute podcasts are designed to help you do.

In today’s podcast, “The Meaning of the Atonement,” we’ll go “under the hood” and explain the transactions that took place on the cross – propitiation, expiation, and reconciliation.  After listening, please spend time in prayer and thanksgiving for the specific crimes he propitiated, expiated, and reconciled you from. – Arthur

Passion Week Podcasts: Day 2 – “Why the Atonement?”

(“Why the Atonement?” – mp3)

Hey TD!

The word “holy” means to be set apart.  That’s what holidays are; they are “holy days,” days set apart from the others.  Passion week is often referred to as Holy Week. We’re excited that you’ve joined us in making this week separate from the other weeks in our lives by focusing on what it is that Jesus really accomplished on the cross through these Passion Week podcasts.

Today’s teaching, “Why the Atonement?” is especially rich and helpful in explaining why an atonement was necessary.  Philippians 2:12 charges us to “work out our salvation with fear and treambling.”  This will help you do just that. Again, spend some time in appreciative prayer after listening.  Until tomorrow! – Arthur

Passion Week Podcasts: Day 1 – “God Himself Will Provide”

(“God Himself Will Provide” – mp3)

Hey TD’ers!

It’s Passion Week, a week to set apart from all other weeks in the year to focus on and remember Christ in a special way.  Can you offer the Lord 10 minutes a day this week as an act of worship to learn and really appreciate the Him? All week, we’ll be posting 10 minute podcasts highlighting some pertinent and powerful teaching from the series “The Cross: His Glory, Our Hope,” one of the most important series I’ve ever taught (perhaps my favorite).

A few years ago, Daniel wanted to do something for the Lord for Passion Week that would honor Him and build you guys up.  So, he decided to produce these podcasts as his gift to us.  Thanks Daniel!  Today’s podcast is, “God Himself Will Provide”

10 minutes a day.  That’s all it takes.  Will you listen?  After listening, please take some time to chew on it and pray over it.  Will you join us in being extra intentional and proactive about focusing on our Savior this week? – Arthur
