THE DEPOT PODCAST: Are You Ready to Die?

In this episode, Erin Olson recounts a recent experience where she had to ask herself this question, “Are you ready to die?” Death is inevitable, and it is all around us. We can’t avoid it, but we must address it.

THE DEPOT PODCAST: Saved by the Sandbar (Acts 27)

Paul, under the supervision of a centurion and aided by a couple of his friends, is put on a ship to Rome. Along the way, the ship encounters a horrible Nor’easter and is battered and broken. Miraculously, everyone survives. Paul received a message from the Lord during the storm about the preservation of life.

THE DEPOT PODCAST: Obedience Can Lead to Pain and Suffering

In chapters 21 and 22, we see Paul heading to Jerusalem against the advice of the disciples. Paul wasn’t being disobedient to the Holy Spirit nor was he being disrespectful to the disciples. Paul simply knew the Holy Spirit wanted him to go to Jerusalem despite the fact he would endure pain and suffering.

THE DEPOT PODCAST: Is All That You Do Worth It? (Acts 14)

Facing persecution, including harassment and stoning, was something the early disciples experienced. Yet, they didn’t let any of it stop them from sharing the Good News. They persevered at all costs because everything they did for the Gospel was worth it. Every life, every healing, every miracle, every new church birthed…all of it was worth it because they knew it was what they were called to do.

THE DEPOT PODCAST: Never Stop Praying and Believing God Will Move (Acts 12)

We sometimes wrongly believe that the outcome is always reliant upon our prayers. This just isn’t true. Our prayers matter to God, yes, but whether He answers them the way we want them answered or not, He gets to decide the outcome. Be an active, prayerful participant. You just never know how God is going to move.

THE DEPOT PODCAST: Confident Obedience Defends Itself (Acts 11)

Sometimes fellow believers will come at you because of something you have done that they don’t like. Instead of arguing with them, especially if it is something you feel God has called you to do and you were acting out of obedience, simply replay the entire situation for them. Let your words and the Spirit work in their hearts. You never know what might happen.

THE DEPOT PODCAST: If God Has No Favorites, Neither Should You (Acts 10)

“Is God softening your heart toward a certain person or people, and most importantly, are you listening? This week’s episode discusses a pivotal moment in church history…the birth of the Gentile church because two men allowed the Holy Spirit to do a work in their hearts and obeyed when they were told to do something.”
