Episode 4 of “By the Waters of Babylon” podcast is now available: “Work that Serves Christ”
I have posted episode 4 of my new podcast, “By the Waters of Babylon.” You can listen here.
In this episode, I discuss the New Testament’s teaching regarding Christian vocation, stressing that Christians can and should serve the Lord Christ in whatever calling God has placed them.
I’ve added a new segment in this episode: Hymn recommendation. I highlight one of my favorite hymns by Isaac Watts, albeit a lesser-known one, “How Sad our State,” with the tune by Joan Pinkston, SASHA.
Finally, I recommend a little booklet that discusses the issue of Christian calling, What Is Vocation? by Stephen J. Nichols (P&R, 2010).
I pray that this episode will be a help and an encouragement to you. Please subscribe to the podcast, and if you find it helpful, please rate it on iTunes.
