The biblical account of Moses and his father-in-law Jethro can teach a Christian many lessons about the qualities of a good leader. Christ warns us that we are responsible to discern between those leaders who truly serve God and those who claim to serve the Lord but are really serving themselves. Jeff Patton challenges you to consider God’s qualifications for leadership.

After leaving Egypt, but before arriving at Sinai to confirm their covenant with God, the Isrealites were faced with a major battle and an opportunity to engage in spiritual warfare on behalf of Christ, the Rock, the Lord of Hosts. Jeff Patton provides the Christian “Minority Report” on the millennia old struggle in the Middle-East, and its implications for Christians who are called to engage in spiritual battle with the weapons provided by God.

“Social proof” is a very powerful motivating force in society. It is just so natural for us to get our cues for behaviour from those in our social group. We do not want to be out of step with those around us. But relying on “social proof” can be very detrimental to our spiritual welfare. Jeff Patton looks into the scriptures to ascertain God’s perspective and discover whether God is putting us to the test, or are we testing God? You need to know!

God’s Providence.
How does God work in our lives? Many people are currently facing severe difficulties this spring due to the flooding in Manitoba and along the Mississippi River. Yet, when we who believe in God’s providence face such challenges, we can have confidence that God will work for our good. Jeff Patton reflects on God’s personal interest in us and our welfare and how he works in our lives for our good.

God’s wish for all of us is that it “may be well with us” and that we should prosper and be in good health. From modern science we have learned much in the past century about the mind-body connection. But really, what science offers is perhaps only a confirmation of insights that our Creator provided thousands of years ago in His instruction manual for living. Jeff Patton delves deeper into the biblical instructions that God provides for our mental and physical well-being.

God our Healer

In the Christian’s journey from Passover to Pentecost there are fundamental lessons about God’s nature and the Christian life that we can rehearse. The journey of the Israelites in the wilderness during this season millennia ago provides us foundational lessons in living. Jeff Patton reminds us that God is our healer. But there is a big “IF” attached to God’s healing promise. God sets conditions and offers opportunities for us to reap the benefits of His teaching. Will we heed God’s advice, instructions in healthy living that the Egyptians did not know, and as a result, suffer “none of these diseases” that the Egyptians experienced?

Who is Your Rock from cogwebcast on Vimeo.

In Japan, siesmologists and engineers were astounded by the amount of destruction caused by “liquefaction” in areas where buildings were built on fill or sandy soils. In the gospels Christ reiterates this spiritual message that building on sand leads to destruction. Jeff Patton asks you to consider, “What is the rock that you, as a Christian should build your life on, so you have a sure foundation?” The answer will present some surprises to those who adhere to traditional teaching, rather than sola scriptura.
