by | Aug 6, 2018 | Equipping You in Grace, Featured

On the latest episode of the Equipping You in Grace Podcast, Dave Jenkins, and David Jones discuss the importance of Christians stewarding their lives in the physical world for the gospel, along with his book, Every Good Thing: An Introduction to the Material World and the Common Good for Christians (Lexham Press, 2016).

What you’ll hear in this episode

  • Why Christians should be concerned with the material world as a worldview and lifeview on issues related to economics and stewardship.
  • The four ways in which the material wealth/poverty and spiritual wealth/poverty are connected.
  • The problem of workaholism and burnout and how Christians can recover a healthy work-life
  • How Christians can be against the prosperity gospel but not against having wealth and steward wealth by giving to the local church to spread the fame of Christ to the nations.
  • How competing worldviews make it difficult for Christians to cultivate a Christian view of creation.
  • How cultivating a Christian understanding of the material world helps Christians through the grace of God live in the material world for the common good of others.
