Knowing and Enjoying God: An Interview with Tim Challies

Rainer on Leadership

Knowing and enjoying God should be integral to the Christian life. However, many of us struggle to grow in the means of grace and develop a deeper relationship with God. On today’s episode of Rainer on Leadership Thom and Sam talk with Tim Challies about the daily spiritual disciplines that help Christians know and enjoy God more fully. Tim Challies is a Christian, a husband to Aileen, and a father to two girls in their teens and one son who is waiting for him in heaven. He worships and serves as an elder at Grace Fellowship Church in Toronto, Canada. He is a blogger and book reviewer and has written a number of popular books. His latest book is Knowing and Enjoying God (Harvest House, September 2021). 1. What was your inspiration for writing a devotional book? 2. How can a small message grow someone’s faith in a big way? 3. In Knowing and Enjoying God, you challenge readers to cultivate consistent means of grace – also referred to as spiritual disciplines. What means of grace are you seeing the church in the most need of right now? 4. A great majority of your book falls into the habits of reading the bible, of praying, and of participating in the local church. Why a strong emphasis on these three?

5LQ Episode 470: Tim Challies

5 Leadership Questions Podcast on Church Leadership with Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy

In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Ben Mandrell are joined by Tim Challies. Challies is a pastor, blogger, and book reviewer. He is also the author of Knowing and Enjoying God. They discuss learning how sorrow is a ministry and the decision to not pursue a large ministry.BEST QUOTES"God equips us for ministry in different ways and one of the ministries of the church is the ministry of sorrow.""If we can understand the hand of providence in it - whether God does things or whether God permits things - somehow God is involved in all the circumstances of our lives.""This is an assignment from God, I don't need to get hung up on the why it happened. I can just say this is what did happen and now I am going to take it as a gift of His grace, an assignment from His hand.""In the Christian world, there is intense pressure to grow.""I really want to be encouraging to people, to be able to continue to bring truth that will shore people up to face another day in a difficult world and help them commit more and more to dutifully serving the Lord.""Envy never does anybody any good, it primarily hurts the one who is envious, because it is a sin in which you are always comparing yourself to others. If you win the comparison you become prideful, if you lose the comparison you become despairing and you turn on God.""Godliness doesn't run in the family, but when you have three generations there is something that builds over time.""We can become very full of ourselves and think far too highly of ourselves and lose that awareness of how sinful we are and what our family tolerates.""As leaders, it is good to get a better assessment from time to time of our own leadership failures and then be willing to bear with our family as they put up with us.""When you are at your best, prepare for your worst.""Your most important leadership moments are probably going to come when you are in great difficulty."RECOMMENDED RESOURCESLifeway Leadership Podcast NetworkChallies.comKnowing and Enjoying God by Tim ChalliesThis Episode's Sponsor:Downline Ministries' mission is to encourage a restoration of biblical discipleship in and through the local church by equipping men and women to know God's Word and make disciples. The primary way we partner with churches is through the Downline Institute, a 9 month biblical discipleship training program that walks students through the Bible (Genesis-Revelation), biblical manhood/womanhood, and key discipleship lessons.
