The Radical Truth
The purpose of The Radical Truth podcast is simple: we want to search out the radical nature of the truth as revealed in God’s Word, the Bible, and learn about Jesus our wonderful, loving Savior. We also want to learn on how to live out this radical faith that Jesus created. Each podcast is roughly 30 minutes and features the fiery teaching of Glenn Meldrum. At times he will debut a song written and performed by young Christian musicians. Subscribe to this podcast so you won’t miss a single episode.
In Ephesians 5:1-2 Paul told us how we are to live, which is to imitate Christ. Verses three and four from the fifth chapter of Ephesians will define this lesson. These two verses are about what Christians should not do and how they must not live. We need to know both how to live and how not to live if we want to be authentic followers of Jesus.
Ephesians 5:1-2 is the portion of Scripture we are examining in this lesson. The subject is on love, but not as the world thinks of love. This is a divine love that the Lord made a way for it to work in and through those who truly follow Jesus. This lesson will challenge and encourage you.
Forgiveness is the topic of this study that comes out of Ephesians 4:32. It deals both with our need of forgiveness and our need to forgive and how these two are tied into each other. This is a powerful and relevant lesson that we all need to understand and apply to our lives.
Ephesians 4:30-32 are the verses we will study in this lesson. In verse 30 Paul commands us to not grieve the Holy Spirit. In verse 31 he teaches how we need to put off sin. Then in verse 32 the apostle tells us what to put on in its place. This is a challenging and practical teaching on how to walk with Jesus.
In verses 25-29 of the fourth chapter of Ephesians we will examine a power principle about living the victorious Christian life. This Biblical principle is simply described as putting off our old nature, then having our way of thinking transformed and finally putting on the new man that is all about Christlikeness. This is a powerful and practical message, so don’t miss it.
In verses 20-24 of Ephesians chapter four we will look at the powerful truths that Paul gave us on how to live the victorious Christian life. What he taught in these verses really work when applied to the life. You need to hear this message and to put it into practice.
In this lesson from Ephesians 4:14-19 Paul gives some straight talk about growing up in the faith. He also makes a strong contrast between those who are mature in the faith and those who have given themselves over to sin. This message that Paul gave us nearly 2000 years ago speaks into our present situation so don’t miss it.
This is the final lesson on Ephesians 4:11that is about the fivefold ministry gifts. In this lesson we will look at the calling of a pastor and teacher. Then in verses 12-13 we will learn why God gave these ministry gifts to the church.
In this lesson we will continue studying Ephesians 4:11 and look at the ministry calling of a prophet and evangelist. This is a challenging study that is digging into a difficult and controversial subject. Don’t miss it.
Verses nine through eleven of the forth chapter of Ephesians are three very challenging verses. They focus upon two subjects. First, what did Paul mean that Jesus descended and then ascended. Second, what is the fivefold ministry? If you haven’t subscribed to this weekly podcast then you can do it for free through iTunes, Google Play Music, Blubrry, Spotify, Stitcher and Tunein.

Ephesians 4:4-8 are the verses we will concentrate on in this lesson. In verses 4-6 Paul states that there is only one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord and one faith. We will learn what Paul meant by these “one” statements. Then in verses 7-8 we will study the grace that is given to Christ’s disciples and what Paul is talking about when he speaks of Christ descending and ascending. This is a very interesting lesson.
In this lesson we will study the first three verses of Ephesians chapter four. At the heart of these verses is the call to live a life worthy of being a follower of Jesus. Verses two and three give some practical application to this very important message.
Love is the subject of this study on Ephesians 3:18-21. The profound truths Paul gave us in these verses when understood and applied to the life produce supernatural results. This is a soul-stirring message you don’t want to miss.
Our lesson today comes from Ephesians 3:17-18. In these two verses Paul teaches on how we need the divine power of the Holy Spirit to be rooted and established in God’s love. The Lord wants us to know how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. This is an awesome portion of Scripture to study.
In Ephesians 3:16-17 we will study such topics as the glorious riches of Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit that’s made available to us and what it means for Christ to dwell in our hearts through faith. This encouraging message will boost you faith.
The great theme of Ephesians 3:12-15 is that all true followers of Jesus are given access to God’s throne through prayer. Faith is the means by which we can approach God and be pleasing to Him. It’s this same faith that takes children of the world that are separated from God to become adopted children of God. This message will stir your soul.
In verses 10-12 of the third chapter of Ephesians we will study the intent of God and what that means. Then move on to what God intends and to whom He intends and this may not be who you were expecting. This is an encouraging message.
This lesson focuses upon Eph.3:8-9. The first half of the message digs into what Paul wrote in verse eight on the unsearchable riches of Christ. This is a glorious topic. The second half of this lesson examines verse 9 that presents some wonderful truths that are very important in our day and age.
Ephesians 3:6-8 is about the mystery that it’s God’s will to save the lost and bring them together to form one spiritual body. The Lord revealed to Paul this mystery and called him to preach the unsearchable riches Christ.
In the first five verses of Ephesians chapter three Paul writes on his call to be an apostle to the Gentile world, or non-Jewish world. This is actually very radical. A Jew bent on persecuting Christians gets radically saved and the Lord sends him to reach a pagan world. This lesson is soul-stirring.
In this lesson we will finish studying the second chapter of Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians. Two of the primary subjects we will examine in verses 20-22 are the historical roots of our faith and that all true followers of Jesus are interwoven with Christ and each other to make a spiritual house where the Spirit of God dwells. This message will encourage you.
Ephesians 2:14-19 is the focus of this lesson. Though there are a few different subjects addressed in these verses, an overarching one is that Jesus destroyed the dividing wall of hostility. You will have to listen to the podcast to learn what that means.
In this Christmas devotional we will look at Isaiah 9:6 and learn who was given and to whom He was given. Merry Christmas!!!
In this lesson from Eph. 2:13 we will study what Paul meant that we have been brought near through the blood of Christ. This is all about the atonement and the benefits that come to those who are true followers of Jesus.
Ephesians 2:10-12 is the focus of this lesson. Though a few different topics come out in this portion of Scripture there are two I want to mention. The first is that we are God’s workmanship that was created to do good works and the second is our great need to rightly remember what we were before coming to Christ. This lesson will be a real encouragement to you.
