Disciple Up Show Notes # 153 Christian Confessions During A Crisis By Louie Marsh, 4-1-2020 1) “I CONFESS I’M DISCOURAGED” Refocus on Jesus – 1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews

The Most Terrible Psalm
By Louie Marsh, 3-4-2020
I’m reading from chapter 5 of my first book, Getting Real. This is the chapter on Psalm 22, a psalm that prophetically foretells the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus. It’s powerful and it’s terrible in how it shows us the agony that Jesus went through on the cross.
I’ll be departing from the book’s text to make comments as I go through. Any comments I think are worth noting will be written below.

Hope Against Hope
By Louie Marsh, 2-26-2020
Recent events have caused this phrase to echo through my mind quite often lately.
I hope against hope that a few meager words spoken on a Sunday morning will heal a marriage, mend a troubled mind or motivate someone to respond to the Word of God.
I hope against hope that an hour’s counsel will help someone begin to overcome a life time of running and hiding from their inner monsters.
I hope against hope that this new class or that new program or this new book will finally cause the hearts of the people in my church to catch fire for Christ.
Hope against hope.

Let Freedom Ring!
By Louie Marsh, 2-19-2020
1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 (ESV)
It’s amazing to see how often a desire for freedom appears in history. You see it over and over again. Some times it’s a misunderstanding of what freedom is, but it’s there. From the recent Arab Spring (which certainly is not about freedom the way we in the West understand it) to the Tea Party to the young people and old hippies currently “occupying” places all over America.
In the words of that old song, “people just gotta be free.” But why? Why is it that people almost everywhere seem to have a soul deep desire to be free?

Two Kinds of People
By Louie Marsh, 2-5-2020
I’ve read a lot of articles, jokes, etc that start with the line, “There are two kinds of people…” Today I’m adding my own ideas to this mix, whether it’s wanted, needed and helpful or not!
Based on my 52 years of experience, I think that there are two kinds of people in the world, those who are introspective and those who aren’t.
These two kinds of people aren’t easy to tell apart at first, and they get along well most of the time. But they look at the world, and especially themselves, in very different ways.

Death with Dignity?
By Louie Marsh, 1-29-2020
Over the course of my ministry I’ve seen more than a few people die. I remember years ago watching a friend of mine pass and that’s when I first began to ponder the phrase, “Death with Dignity.” I want to make clear that the hospice workers were great! The place was clean, very nice and had everything someone whose terminal could need.

Paul’s Prayer For You & Me, Col. 1: 9-14
By Louie Marsh, 1-15-2020
If you were asked to pray for a small, struggling group of Christians who you had heard of but never met, what would you pray for? Would you pray for revival, more warmth in their fellowship, more evangelism or that they try some new exciting program to grow? Well Paul didn’t he prayed that the Colossians – and us! – would know God’s will! Why? Lets see…

Is the Bible Reliable?
By Louie Marsh
Show Intro – Read E-mail from John Explain this was part of my Basic Bible Questions and this chapter was taken largely from Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell found here: shorturl.at/eoQ68
I have asked this question about the truth of the Bible first for good reason. Everything in Christianity hangs on how this question is answered.
If you say, “Yes, the Bible is true,” then you approach the Scriptures as the very Word of God, accept everything it says as truth revealed by God, and have a standard for truth and morality that transcends time and cultural shifts and quirks. If the Bible is true, then the Christian faith is true also, Jesus is the Son of God and Savior of the world, and everyone should believe and follow Him
