Episode #068 – In Pursuit of Godly Truth – Interview with Professor William Wagner - Part 1
Thank you for entrusting and investing your precious time with me to grow in Jesus together. I am blessed and thrilled to be back with you today to discuss more ways to live with eternal perspective.
Colossians 1:10 says, “So that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.”
As I have been obedient in producing this podcast, God has been faithful, going ahead of me in every way. One of the stirrings He has placed in my heart is the desire to enable others to want and know Him more so that we may all deepen and mature our walk with Jesus, striving to live a life worthy of the gift God offers us through Jesus. In order to please according to His ways, we must live with an eternal perspective that draws us to follow Him moment by moment. I believe God has blessed us today with an interview that will shift perspectives of those listening or spur us into more action so that we may each hear and show Him more clearly.
Whether you are living in the United States, or as some of my listeners, in other countries, what ties us together is our bond in Christ, the author and definer of truth. As you listen to this interview with Professor William Wagner, the President of Salt and Light Global, an international ministry preserving and shining truth in the culture, pray for God to expose areas of your life in which you can allow God more freedom to complete His good work in and through you. It takes each of us to stand firmly for the salt and light only Jesus offers. He loves each person, each country, and each soul in our world. He will not forsake us, yet we cannot ignore Him or the work He calls us to allow Him to complete through us.

Professor Wagner knows what he is discussing, but most of all, loves the Lord and strives to honor, obey, and please Him. I pray you hear God’s voice speaking to you as you listen.
_____________________ Interview with Professor Wagner _________________
Have you enjoyed the interview so far? I respect the passion and determination God has gifted to Professor Wagner. I split this conversation with Professor Wagner into two episodes because the material is bold and relevant to the culture our world is facing. I pray each of us ponder what was heard today and allow God to stir areas of our hearts where we may be clinging to selfishness or ignorance and prayerfully ask God to expose where we need to shift into action for Him.
Are we walking worthy of the manner to which we have been called?
Father God, you alone are holy. You are worthy. Please humble our hearts to allow Your work in and through us. You are in Your holy temple, seated on Your holy throne, yet Your eyes roam the earth, they watch us closely as You examine us, the sons of men. I know we are far from You and Your desires for us. May we seek You more humbly and serve You with greater passion as we allow what we learn in Your word, through prayer time with You and through conversations such as the one we have heard today and will complete next week. Show each of us where we need to change and what we need to do to allow our world to be holy as You are holy, and worthy as You desire us to be. Enable us to step out in faith, regardless of fear, and help us to be obedient in every way You call for us. Keep our eyes, heart, and mind centered on You. In Your holy and precious name we humbly pray. Amen.
Thank you for listening to this podcast. I encourage you to listen to the podcast next week as I finish my conversation with Professor Wagner. I pray this podcast draws you nearer to God and helps you cling to Him, despite any circumstances in your life. Until next week, keep looking Up while focusing on ways to Live With Eternal Perspective.
