Jordan Raynor: The Creator in You

Jordan Raynor helps Christians respond to the radical, biblical truth that their work matters for eternity. In this episode, Misty and Jordan discuss how our work differs and shares similarities with God’s work, our ideas about why God desires for us to be co-creators with Him, and the hope that scripture holds to the young person searching for the value of his work. Lastly, we discuss Jesus’ vocation, importance, and impact on the Kingdom of Heaven.

Key Takeaways

“They are trying to distract us from the unity we have in Christ.”

“The best way to deal with the feeling of doubt that sparks deconstruction, is to take time to bring them back to the cross.”

“We are seeing the cross, the stories of God, and the Word of God diminished in favor of uplifting cultural views instead of biblical views.”

“It is ok to question God, you can ask why, just don’t get stuck in the why.”

“We need to go back to what made us fall in love with God in the first place, that will draw us back to Christ as our source.”

“This world is not our home, we cannot fix every problem in the world even though we want to and try, ultimately we know that our salvation is found in Christ.”

“Revelations talks about how people overcame by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony, we have to keep coming back to that as the source.”
