Purpose 116: Jack Deere Even In Our Darkness


In this week’s episode of Are You Real Purpose we hear from Jack Deere. Jack has spent years in ministry working in many different capacities including church plants, being a professor, speaker, teacher, and the list goes on. Jack shares his inspiring story of how he grew up in a traumatic home environment, got saved at 17, went on to do ministry until his life was forever changed when his son took his own life the age of 22 due to drug addiction. Jack goes on to share that the beginning years of his ministry were spent seeing God and teaching God as an obligation, and that there were principles that needed to be followed. Jack says when we major in obligations it can lead us to endure God rather than to enjoy God. He says he now realizes that the love of God and experiencing the character of God allows us to have true enjoyment in Him. Jack says, we need to feel His affection, and know Him as friend. This is a truly powerful testimony of how God can transform our lives, and use even the most tragic situations to draw us closer and know Him more deeply.

WOW … this interview with Jack Deere is the BEST one and MOST real with Jon Fuller as the host … I have been listening to Are You Real podcast for six months “commencing and catching up” with episode #70 from last year (when by “happens-chance” I discovered Are You Real six months ago)

PS … my favorite series is the government with Dubb Alexander
