“Our Present Faith | Our Future Hope” (Hebrews 11:1, Romans 8:24)

The best way to do that is by placing our faith in the promise from God of what our future holds. Additionally, Geoff congratulates Brent on the birth of his firstborn son, which also provides fodder for this week's "unbelievable" topic, the power that infants wield over adults.

“Guilt & Condemnation” (Romans 8:1-4)

In this episode, Brent + Geoff discuss the difference between condemnation from the enemy and conviction from the Holy Spirit. Condemnation is like a giant gorilla that weighs you down and won't set you free from your sin. Conviction however turns you from your sin. By studying Romans 8, they find solace in the fact that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 

A fan provides this week's "Unbelievable" topic, the microwavable sensations, Hot Pockets.
