Rediscovering God's Freedom


In this episode, Matt interviews Father Dave Pivonka, TOR, President of Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, who speaks forthrightly about seeing God's freedom at work in the students and really all of God's people.

In the context of discussing freedom in Christ, Fr. Dave tells the story that led Franciscan University to offer new students free tuition for a semester. He and Matt discuss how unexpected ideas from the Lord require discernment and stepping out in faith!

We learn that freedom is a constant theme throughout the scriptures and how God always invites us back, even after we have compromised that freedom.

Fr. Dave teaches how “freedom from” something leads to “freedom for” a new future. He describes what freedom looks like, his inspiration by students who come from difficult situations into beautiful faith, and gives poignant examples of people allowing their suffering to count for the kingdom.

Be drawn into deeper freedom in your own life, and learn to walk in  the spirit through a more personal encounter with the Lord, reclaiming the kingdom of God in your heart.
