We need to start thinking post-resurrection instead of pre-resurrection. Today, Jeff explains a shift in thinking that will not only change our life, but will change our relationship with Christ for the better.

Meet Your Host: Jeff Cavins
Jeff Cavins is passionate about helping people understand Scripture and become disciples of Jesus Christ. Though he was born Catholic, Jeff went to Bible school and served as a protestant minister for twelve years before reverting to the Catholic Faith. Jeff then received his MA in Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. Since then, he has become a leading Catholic evangelist and author.
Jeff created The Bible Timeline learning system, which revolutionized Catholic Bible Study for millions of Catholics. Since its introduction, Jeff has developed The Great Adventure series of Bible studies to help people better understand Sacred Scripture and its meaning for their lives.
I loved the podcast and agree with it, however, i think we have to always remember that Jesus also said in John 5:19 “ the son can do nothing of his own accord but only what he sees the Father doing: for whatever he does , the Son does likewise.” We need to have the discernment and wisdom to see what the Father is doing.
This lesson was so good to follow & live in Jesus
I would love to have the scrip of this lesson for our Bible study in our church ladies group.
