A while ago I sat down with Pastor Jeff Figgs for the Expositors Collective Podcast. Jeff and I both host the Calvary Live call-in show on GraceFM (which also podcasts its episodes).
Jeff grew up with a speech impediment, and in this episode we talked about the power of ministering out of weakness, and how doing so causes us to depend on the power of God.
In 2 Corinthians, Paul was defending himself against accusations that his many weaknesses and hardships with proof that he wasn’t really spiritual. In response to this, Paul said that God spoke to him, telling him: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:8). Paul concluded: Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

Here’s an excerpt of the discussion I had with Pastor Jeff Figgs. You can listen to the entire episode here on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
The radio outreach of White Fields Community Church, “Life in the Field”, will be expanding starting this Friday, May 1st, to every weekday at 2:30 pm MST on 89.7 GraceFM.
Our Sunday morning broadcasts at 10 am will continue to air as well.
We are excited to see how God will use this broadcast to reach people along the Front Range with Gospel-centered Bible teaching, and we ask that you pray that God uses it in a great way for His glory and the good of people in this community.
Let your friends and family know about the broadcast, so they can tune in!
GraceFM can be heard on 89.7 FM from Cheyenne, WY to Castle Rock, CO. In and around Colorado Springs it can be heard on 101.7 – and you can also tune in online at 897gracefm.com.
Starting this week, you can hear me on the radio here on Colorado’s Front Range, on 89.7 Grace FM.
White Fields is doing a series of 1-minute devotional messages called “Word from the Field”. Our thought was that instead of just airing our sermons, we could do something a little bit unique, that would also run multiple times per day at different times. This way we can stand out from the crowd and reach people who listen to the radio at different times of the day and week.
We are also uploading these recordings to SoundCloud, so that people can keep up with them online and share them through social media. You can follow us on SoundCloud here, and below you can listen to the messages we’ve recorded so far.
