About Circuit Riders Podcast
Zach Nash begins a new series on the character of Jesus and teaches about our ultimate privilege, knowing Jesus and being known by Him. He brings us into Matthew 7:21-23 to show us God is not interested in our works, but rather a deep personal relationship of knowing who we are. This is important because our ability to discern the presence of the Lord wherever we are is based out of our ability to know his voice.
Nick Brennt finishes the series on the fruit of the Holy Spirit on self-control and self-mastery. He emphasizes that mastery over yourself is one of the most important fruits of the Holy Spirit that we get to receive and teaches us that the worldly value of self-control is different from a follower of Jesus, which can only come from beholding the Father and surrendering ourselves to Jesus. Nick challenges the modern believer to let go of striving for self-control by ourselves, and to receive the love of Jesus and let him be your master.
Chloe Mack continues the series on the fruit of the Holy Spirit, with a message on peace. She gives a report of our generation, which has been plagued by mental illness and the extreme views surrounding it, and she brings us into the many ways Jesus has healed her of anxiety in her own life. She calls us to the only solution to the issue of our generation, Jesus, and invites us to take bold steps to break the stronghold of anxiety over our generation.

Zach Nash continues on the series on the fruit of the Holy Spirit with a message of God's kindness. He shares a quote from Tim Keller and he challenges us to ponder our perspective of God's kindness, and he challenges the religious forms we use to "earn" God's kindness. He brings us into the Word to show us the truth behind God's grace and mercy that brings true freedom and releases every burden from us.
Derek Mack continues the series on the fruits of the Holy Spirit by talking about Godly kindness vs worldly niceness. He provokes us with Amy Carmichaels life as a missionary to Hindu prostitutes to ask ourselves if we carry worldly niceness, which is surrounded by our own selves, or whether we carry the kindness of the kingdom, which is all about other people. It's a challenge for the listener to be willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of loving others like Jesus calls believers to love others.
Derek Mack summarizes the history of the original Circuit Riders, and all the information we have about their history to this point. From the shores of England to the frontiers of America the Circuit Riders have a long history of pioneering America and seeing revival.
Derek continues the series on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ponders on the significance of Jesus' background as a carpenter and reminds us of his faith in the disciples. It's a call to faith for the modern believer to reflect Jesus' faith in our redemption, and the fruit of our lives.
Zach Nash brings a message from 1 Timothy 1:11 teaching us that our source of joy must come from Jesus. He breaks down our propensity as believers to seek and carry joy, comes from our desire to become more like Jesus. It reflects the joy the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have always shared with one another, and still share with one another, that we have access to. It emphasizes the importance for the modern believer to recognize that our feelings and situation doesn't define us, our revelation of Jesus does.
Michael Pierces brings us a message from Nehemiah 6, titled "A Vision That Keeps You on the Wall". We are challenged to examine the long-term vision we have for our lives and how our daily activities align with that vision. Michael gives us a definition of vision and how a lack of vision can negatively impacts us. We are encouraged to spend time with God and seek out a vision that will sustain us in our day-to-day.
Derek Mack closes out our series on 1 Corinthians 13. He poses the question to us, "does your love have a limit?" Derek challenges us to look for where our love begins to grow cold and exhorts us to depend more deeply on Jesus to empower us to love. Derek then gives four practical questions for us to ask ourselves in order to walk deeper into love.
Zach Nash continues our series on 1 Corinthians 13. He challenges us with the story of the Prodigal Son in John 15, connecting our ability to give God's love with our ability to first receive God's love. Zach walks us through four hindrances to receiving God's love: entitlements, self-righteousness, religious obligation, and earning. He exhorts us to receive the Father's smile in preparation for the coming revival.
