The Missing Ingredient

Publishers keep sending me their new books on discipleship.

Alas, I’ve yet to find one that goes into the essential element of being a disciple of Jesus: How to live by the indwelling life of Christ.

This is why I released my 10-audio online discipleship course, LIVING BY THE INDWELLING LIFE OF CHRIST.

Today, I’m featuring the very first message in that course.

At the time of this writing, it’s been listened to 27,000+ times.

You can also listen to it on iTunes. It’s the podcast episode from 10/4/10.

    I bumped into you when you first spoke in Canada (2008 or 09). I hadn’t planned on attending the conference of ‘that fellow who wrote so polemically about the institutional church’ (Pagan Christianity) but God thought otherwise, and He got me there—to my surprise.

    I was humbled, blessed, and corrected (in my premature and incorrect assumptions about you) and have been visiting your writings, blog, etc., off & on since then. Recently, thanks to your on-line course, and podcasts, more ‘on’.
    Last week, my husband & I listened to our first podcast together, and he’s now on a listening roll.

    Just wanted to THANK YOU for the many materials, venues, and, avenues you are pursuing in sharing the GREAT GOOD NEWS God has revealed, released, and implanted in you, for His Bride’s sake.

    We are blessed, needy, thirsting, and DRINKING!

    Praise God.
    Love you, brother,

    Nom / Toronto, Canada

    AS always Frank your insight is thought provoking. Appreciate the many challenges to my own strongly held beliefs. I’ve grown much since being introduced to your teaching, books and blog. THANKS

    Enjoying and benefiting from the message. Appreciate the diligence and exactness in your approach to scripture. “It’s no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” … fascinating understanding of Christ as the Tree of Life within. Much to ponder on here.

    I know I’ve bugged you about this before, but the RSS link you shared in the post above ( ) does not work. The last episode that shows in my podcast app on my Android phone is titled Who Else Wants a Shot of Spiritual Adrenaline, from April 10th.

    You are using Podbean, and paying for it I assume, I would figure out a way to make it possible for Android users to subscribe also.

    Sorry to bother you about this, but this is a real pet peeve of mine. Podbean, blog talk radio and many other services make it so easy to get podcasts up and going, but fall short when it comes to features and service, and they generally cost to much.

      I am not technical, but it looks like it must be on your end. Maybe you need to clear out the cache on your phone. The feed looks fine on my end and is up to date.

      If clearing out your phone’s cache doesn’t fix it, I’d encourage you to subscribe in iTunes then. for the link. Most of our subscribers do it via iTunes.
