-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word about… Remembering…. what God has done for you

-it’s about looking back into our lives and seeing God’s work in our lives and our relationships

I am reminded of Psalm 103:2 where it says:  “Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.” 

Here, King David commands his own soul to remember all the benefits that God has given him.

-you know it’s so easy to have a critical and complaining heart

-to look our lives and our relationships and only see what is missing

-and even get frustrated by what you don’t have

-or to look at your spouse and only see what your spouse is lacking

-but it’s really important to take time and give thanks for all that God has given to you

-and that includes things you did not earn….things just given to you without you asking

-so, take a look at your life today

-now…this is a faith exercise

-so, through your eye of faith, take a look at your life and see the hand of God in all the areas of your life and marriage and family

-take time to give thanks for your life

-take time to reflect on the good things in your spouse and family

-take a break from asking for more

-and give thanks for what God has already given you

-in fact, David in this psalm is in the act of worship

-so, make it your personal worship, your personal devotion to REMEMBER what God has done for you…..and give thanks for your life and marriage

-and you’ll be surprised how much that perspective changes your attitude and approach to your life and marriage

….that’s today’s Word on the go

Episode 7  Your godly anger

Cotg 007 doc

Episode description

It’s about your godly anger.  It’s about being angry about all the things gone wrong.   And so, it’s about caring enough to be angry about the problems in your life and relationships and doing something about it.  If you need counseling, contact me and tell me your story.  I will listen.  Text 714-696-1963 ; email PastorTaeShin@gmail.com ; www.PastorTae.com ; www.Titus2Ministry.org

 

-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word about… your godly anger

-now, today’s word on the go… might be a surprise!

After all, anger generally has a bad reputation.  But let’s consider today that anger is not entirely bad. In fact, there is a good kind of anger that God actually created and wants you to have.

Ephesians 4:26 says, “In your anger do not sin.”

-so, the truth is…that you can get angry without sinning.

In fact, there are many things that should make you very angry.

-social injustices, community crimes, church problems, family dysfunction, marriage breakdown

-these things should really stir a sense of righteous indignation

-so if it’s ok to be angry about these things….then maybe the real problem is that we don’t get angry enough

-maybe we are not bother enough

-maybe we are too tolerant about all the bad things and relationship breakdowns around us

-maybe we don’t care enough about the right thing and God’s holy standards

-how much do you really care about your life and relationships?  Enough to get angry?

 

Consider today how you can be angry and even more angry but in a righteous kind of way as you take a fresh look at your relationships, your community, your friends, your church, your marriage, and your own life.

….that’s today’s Word on the go

-gotta go!

 

Episode 6  Restraining Your Words

Cotg 006 doc

Episode description

It’s about retraining your words.  It’s about not saying everything that is on your mind.   And so, it’s about carefully weighing your words and exercising wisdom before you choose to speak.  If you need counseling, contact me and tell me your story.  I will listen.  Text 714-696-1963 ; email PastorTaeShin@gmail.com ; www.PastorTae.com ; www.Titus2Ministry.org

 

-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word about….retraining your words

-you don’t have to say that

-but one woman said to me:  “Pastor, when I get mad, it just comes out.  I can’t help it.”

-One guy said…”Well, what can I say, I’m brutally honest.”

-actually, let me be brutally honest:  your words can break relationships

In Proverbs 15:28:  “The heart of the righteous wei999ghs its answers, but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil.”  The image here is of a geyser that suddenly erupts.

“Old Faithful,” suddenly erupting.
However, the righteous is described as weighing his answers.  The word “weigh” in the original Hebrew is a business term that involves a scale that carefully weights things during business transactions.

In the same way, the believer, in his verbal transactions, is to carefully weigh his answers before he speaks.

 

Proverbs 17:27 says, “A man of knowledge uses words with restraint.”  There’s the word of the day (!), restraint, .  You need to put a restraining order on your tongue!

People who say, “I can’t help it,” are not being truthful.  Consider this example:  What if you are in an argument with your spouse; you are yelling and screaming, saying everything on your mind.

Then suddenly, the phone rings and you clear your throat, quickly gather yourself and answer the phone politely and with a friendly voice you say, “hello.”

-of course you can control yourself

-do that today and ask God for strength for self control

OUTRO

-that’s it for today

Episode 5  Bad Relationships 

Cotg 005 doc

Episode description

It’s about the bad relationships in your life.  It’s about how these bad relationships destroy your life and lead to a “downward spiral.”   And so, you need to make a decision to detach yourself from them.  If you need counseling, contact me and tell me your story.  I will listen.  Text 714-696-1963 ; email PastorTaeShin@gmail.com ; www.PastorTae.com ; www.Titus2Ministry.org

 

-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word about….bad relationships

-I’m not talking about marriage but the people in your life that are dragging you down

-let me ask you, how do your friends and associates influence you?  Positively or negatively?

-this quick word is about the negative impact

Psalm 1:1 says, “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.”

This psalm celebrates the life of a blessed man. “Blessed” in the original Hebrew means happy or fulfilled, but notice how this happy life is immediately described by a string of negatives as what he does NOT do.

The emphasis is that #1 he does NOT walk in the counsel of the wicked, that #2 he does NOT stand in the way of sinners, and that #3 he does NOT sit in the seat of mockers;

-notice the 3 verbs:  walk, stand, sit

Notice the progression. The man is walking, but then he stops and stands as if to consider more deeply and then he finally sits down as if has made a serious commitment

-so the blessed man…or woman who does NOT do that

-think about the people in your life that are dragging you down

-it’s good to remain cordial but it’s time to detach any kind of commitment that involves sitting down with them

-because it’s highly possible that such associations will lead to your life going in the wrong direction

-Counselors call this a “downward spiral.” In fact, people speak about their lives as spiraling out of control. The idea is that one bad thing leads to another.

-you might need to make a decision today to detach yourself

-that’s it for today

-if you want to know more about this, you can visit Titus2Ministry.org and PastorTae.com

-if you are an influencer and want to expand your reach, tell me your vision and I will listen.

-and if you need counseling, contact me for a free conversation.  Tell me your story.  And I will listen

-gotta go!

 

Episode 4  The power of sin

Cotg 004 doc

Episode description

It’s about the power of sin.  It’s about how sin grows and takes over and destroys your life and relationship.  And so, you must not delay in dealing with the sins in your life and relationship.  If you need counseling, contact me and tell me your story.  I will listen.  Text 714-696-1963 ; email PastorTaeShin@gmail.com ; www.PastorTae.com ; www.Titus2Ministry.org

 

-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word about….the power of sin

The brutal reality is that sin is alive and well inside you.

-let’s confirm – that Jesus saves you from the penalty of sin

-But, the power of sin is still alive

-and so, Galatians 5 speaks of an ongoing conflict inside you involving your sin nature

-and there….sin is described has having a desire!

-and that word “desire” in the original Greek is lust….an intense desire for all the wrong things

-and if that sin is lusting….that sin is growing

-and if that sin is growing, that sin is trying to take over

-and that’s why your life….marriage…and situation always gets worse…if you leave it alone

-you know how people look at bad situations….like a bad marriage and say…. well, let’s wait and see what happens….

-bad idea….the more you wait, the more the sin intensifies

-but studies show that people wait up to 6 years before they do something about their problems

-today’s quick word is about acting quickly to stop the growth of sin in your life and relationships

-sin’s gonna grow, but you must stop it

-that’s it for today

-if you want to know more about this, you can visit Titus2Ministry.org and PastorTae.com

-if you are an influencer and want to expand your reach, tell me your vision and I will listen.

-and if you need counseling, contact me for a free conversation.  Tell me your story.  And I will listen

Episode 3:  Persistence

Cotg 003 doc

Episode description

It’s about persistence.  It’s about not giving up and going after what you want.   It’s about being stubborn and asking God for what you want.  What do you want in your life and relationships?  If you need counseling, contact me and tell me your story.  I will listen.  Text 714-696-1963 ; email PastorTaeShin@gmail.com ; www.PastorTae.com ; www.Titus2Ministry.org

 

-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word about persistence

-it’s about not giving up but going after what you want

-what do you want in your life, career, marriage, and family?

-you can’t be passive about it

-even in your prayers about it, you can’t be passive

-you have to ask….and then ask again….and then…..ask again

-remember the wrestling match between Jacob and God in Genesis 32

-what an outrageous situation….to think that God would even allow a human to wrestle with him

-and just as outrageous is Jacob’s audacity and stubbornness when he said “I will NOT let you go unless you bless me.”

-and so…God allows Jacob’s stubbornness and persistence and blesses him

-…..maybe you don’t have….because you did not ask with persistence

-maybe you are not moving forward in your life and relationship, because you are not audacious and stubborn enough about what you want

-too many excuses for not move forward?

-you need to be persistent….in pursuit and in prayer

-you know… the starting point is ….your own heart…. that fire….that desire inside you ….to want more from life and relationships

-go for it…..and ask Him today and then pursue it

-well, that’s your quick word for the day

-if you want to know more about this, you can visit Titus2Ministry.org and PastorTae.com

-and if you need counseling, please contact me.  If fact, we can have a free conversation.  Tell me your story.  And I will listen.

Gotta go….

 

Episode 2:  Negative Feelings

Cotg 002 doc

Episode description

It’s about negative feelings.  It’s about not wanting to do what is right.   This is one of the most important issues to learn.  It’s about understanding the relationship between feelings and responsibility.  If you need counseling, contact me and tell me your story.  I will listen.  Text 714-696-1963 ; email PastorTaeShin@gmail.com ; www.PastorTae.com ; www.Titus2Ministry.org

 

-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word.

-it’s about….negative emotions

-what if I don’t feel like it?

-what if I don’t feel like doing the right thing?

-boy, we’ve all been there, right?  We know it’s right, but we have no desire to do it

-so, what do we do when we don’t feel like doing the right thing? Like….forgiving….

-the answer is….do it anyway

-do it, just because it’s the right thing to do

-Jesus teaches on this in Luke 17 where he gives the example of a worker…out in the field

-he works all day and then comes in and cooks the master’s dinner

-the point is that he does his job regardless of how he feels

-he does his job simply because it is his duty…

-you don’t have to feel good about it, you just have to believe it is the right thing to do and that it glorifies God when you do it

-now, isn’t this the way we really live?

-we do to work whether we feel like it or not

-we take care of our children, whether we feel like it or not

-we take out the trash whether we feel like it or not

-in fact, all the responsibilies in life, we do…simply because it’s the right thing to do

-now, some might say,…..then what about feelings?  Where do there come into play?

-it comes in….later….

-do the right thing, then the feelings will fall into place

-think about it, why should you feel good before you do it…you haven’t done anything!

-do what’s right and then the feelings will align

-obey God….then the good feelings will come

-well, that’s your quick word for the day

-if you want to know more about this, you can visit Titus2Ministry.org and PastorTae.com

-and if you need counseling, please contact me.  If fact, we can have a free conversation.  Tell me your story.  And I will listen.

Gotta go….

 


Episode 1 – Blame Shifting 

-hi, I’m Pastor Tae, founder of the Titus 2 Ministry and PastorTae.com

-and today, I want to share a quick word about the Christian life and relationships for people on the go

-here’s a quick word.

-it’s about….Blame shifting

It’s about noticing the sins of others before your own and then shifting the blame on to them.  It’s about de-emphasizing our responsibility while overemphasizing the responsibility of others.

It’s the oldest trick in the book… remember Adam shifted the blame onto the woman and even God (!) in Genesis 3:12.  Adam shifts the blame saying, “The woman you put here with me…she gave me some fruit from the tree and I ate it.

And times have not changed.  We still do that today.

So much so that Jesus says in Matthew 7:3-5, “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

And so, today’s quick word is about taking responsibility and not shifting it.  It’s about assessing your own heart.  And by doing so, you take the first steps towards fixing a relationship.  In fact, self-inventory is the beginning of conflict resolution.
