Posted On October 15, 2018

On today’s Equipping You in Grace Episode, Dave Jenkins and Scott Redd discuss the importance of the Christian’s identity in Christ, what it means to truly delight in the Lord and His Word, along with his book, The Wholeness Imperative: How Christ Unifies our Desires, Identity and Impact in the World (Christian Focus, 2018).

  • Why it’s important to understand how biblical simplicity springs from the heart of God.
  • Why it’s so important that the Christian’s delight in the Word be heartful, joyful, and satisfying.
  • The dangers of an over-intellectualized faith.
  • The five diagnostic principles that highlight pious talismans in the Christian life.
  • How the Apostle John’s teaching helps Christians understand the nature of true confession and repentance in the Christian life.
  • Why it’s vital that Christians both build the Kingdom and populate it.
