Let’s Go Barefoot – Loren Cunningham

Loren CunninghamThis episode of the YWAM Teaching Podcast presents us with a classic and timeless teaching from Loren Cunningham. Loren speaks on the importance of submission and relinquishing our “rights”. He calls us to lay down the things we cling to so that we can experience complete freedom in our relationship with God and be fully available to serve Him.

Joshua 1: 3 (NIV)

I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.

Exodus 3: 5 (NIV)

“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”

Joshua 14: 9 (NIV)

“So on that day Moses swore to me, ‘The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children forever, because you have followed the Lord my God wholeheartedly.’”.

Ruth 4: 7 – 8 (NIV)

(Now in earlier times in Israel, for the redemption and transfer of property to become final, one party took off his sandal and gave it to the other. This was the method of legalizing transactions in Israel.) So the guardian-redeemer said to Boaz, “Buy it yourself.” And he removed his sandal.

Mark 8: 34 – 35 (NIV)

Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.

Responsibility – Rights = Reward of Relationship with God

    Hey!  I remember that!  If that is the one I think it is, I listened to it more than 20 years ago!
    I’m listening again right now.


    By the way, someone who knows Loren Cunningham needs to tell him his website is broken.  All I see is the index of his WordPress folders!
