Jordan Raynor: Redeeming Your Time

On this episode the By His Grace podcast, I sit down with best-selling author Jordan Raynor to discuss his new book Redeeming Your Time: 7 Biblical Principles for Being Purposeful, Present, and Wildly Productive.This power-packed episode is filled with wisdom to not just to manage your time, or talk about productivity, but to redeem your time to partner with God to accomplish Kingdom work.

Jordan shares that the gospel biographies show Jesus facing many of the same challenges we face today as we seek to steward our limited time. And because he was infallible God, we can assume that Jesus managed his time perfectly, providing us with the ideal model to follow.

Key Takeaways

“The 7 Principles, they’re not just Biblical, I believe you can see them in the gospel modeled in the life of Jesus Christ”

“I’ve  never once read one, where accounted for the author time, God Himself of course, managed His time when He came to earth in the incarnation, in a human being named Jesus Christ”

“Jesus prioritized time with the Father above food, sleep, time with disciples above everything, we gotta do the same.”

“Before we set BIG goals for our life, we gotta be faithful with what’s in our hands right now”

“Jesus spent a phenomal amount of time in lonely places, sometimes the gospels translate that to solitary places, we have to do the same if we want to be creative, if we want to think clearly, if we want to listen to God’s voice”

“Jesus throughout the gospels was crazy busy, but remarkably unhurried.”

“We should be setting the biggest goals on the planet”

“God doesn’t need us to be productive, we can rest and the world is going to keep on spinning”

“My friends curate the news for me”

“We gotta recognize that quiet places are not places of weakness, there are places of great strength.”

7 Timeless Principles to Redeem our Time

  1. Start with The Word
  2. Jesus commanded our Yes, be Yes
  3. Dissent from the Kingdom of Noise
  4. Prioritize Your Yeses
  5. Accept Your Uni-presence
  6. Embrace Productive Rest
  7. Eliminate Hurry

3 Rhythms of Rest

  1. Bi-hourly breaks

Jordan’s favorite Practice – Taking control of when you check your messages

  1. Choice ahead of time, when you are going to check your messages
  2. Build a list of VIP’s that you want to have access to you at anytime
  3. Go to the VIP’s and set clear expectations of when you will check messages

We discuss his response to the recent mandates, and his OpEd in The Stream. Intercessors for America President and CEO Dave Kubal explains why every Christian must stand against this right now. He asserts, regardless of our personal views, all Christians must stand together right now to protect religious freedom.The governments positioning itself to be the sole arbiter of deciding whether Americans’ personal religious beliefs are valid or not. This is a dangerous precedent that will only grow if not challenged.

Equipping Christians to engage and speak truth into the important cultural debates of our day, Kubal is a nationally recognized faith leader. With over 35 years of national ministry experience, Kubal is a seminary-trained ordained pastor and former Vice President with Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He is author of Inspired Prayers and Fasting and has been a featured speaker at national conferences and events, including NFL Chapels.

Colossians 2:8  ESV “See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits[a] of the world, and not according to Christ.”

Key Takeaways 

“News, Prayers, and Action”

“People are saying this is a time of great division in our nation, but I actually think it is a great time of isolation.”

Kristin Bonin: Dream Defenders

Kristin Bonin: Dream Defenders

On this episode of By His Grace, I interview my friend Kristin Bonin. We discuss the importance of community, being a dream defender, finding community, mentoring, speaking affirmation into the lives of others, and being cheerleaders for others. Kristin Bonin is a speaker and author based in Houston, TX. She writes and speaks from her own personal challenges, struggles and lessons the Lord is teaching her along the way. She’s just a girl who has fallen in love with the idea of making God famous and has decided to chase hard after Him in hopes that others will too.

Key Takeaways 

  • “Be wise with your words.” 
  • “Not everybody needs to know your dreams.” 
  • “The Lord has shown me to have eyes to see, ears to hear, and some thick skin.”
  • “We need to have truth-tellers in our lives.” 
  • “My yes is a yes.” 
  • “We all need a Paul and we all need a Timothy.” 
  • “The enemy is going to try to snuff us out.”
