Turning Our Will Over to God - Deep in Christ, Episode 36

September 30, 2021

JonMarc Grodi and Brother Rex Anthony Norris continue their discussion of the spirituality of 12 Step recovery programs with step #3: “We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.”

They discuss the ways in which we so easily compartmentalize our lives and allow Jesus only limited access, and how radical honesty can be the grounds for a deeper relationship with Christ, even for seasoned Christians.

JonMarc Grodi and Brother Rex Anthony Norris continue their discussion of the spirituality of 12 Step recovery programs.

Even for Christians who have been walking with the Lord for many years may discover that because they have never fully come to grips with their own fundamental woundedness (Step #1), they have not also fully embraced their need for God as the “higher power” that can “restore us to sanity” (Step #2).

The radical self-honesty of Step #1 leads to the possibility of a deeper relationship with and need for Jesus as savior and healer that is bound up with Step #2.

Admitting Our Powerlessness Over Sin - Episode 34

September 16, 2021

JonMarc Grodi and Br. Rex Anthony Norris embark on an exploration of the spirituality of “12 Step” recovery programs popularized over the past century, examining the ways these programs reflect aspects of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Step One is to "admit powerlessness” over one's destructive habits, and JonMarc and Brother Rex discuss how important it is to realize that it is ultimately Christ, and not our own willpower, that brings victory over sin.

We are all sinners, and apart from Him we can do nothing, but He pours out grace and healing to those who come to Him in radical honesty and humility.

Using Money Well - Deep in Christ, Episode 32

September 2, 2021

In this second of a two-part discussion with guest Jacob Imam of NewPolity.com, we continue to dig into the virtues, more specifically those virtues that relate to our use of money and material goods.

Examining these virtues (and their opposing vices) very quickly shows us the ways in which we have all allowed the cares and values of the world creep into and divide our hearts with regards to money.

But this also gives us the remedy: trusting in our Lord Jesus and specifically practicing the virtues that break down worldly attachment and build up our creative ability to use (God’s) money well.
