In this episode, Erin Olson recounts a recent experience where she had to ask herself this question, “Are you ready to die?” Death is inevitable, and it is all around us. We can’t avoid it, but we must address it.   Things to Think About:   Have you personally addressed the issue of your salvation? Do you have things in order? What more could you be doing in the time you have?             Verses: “None is righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10) “I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it…And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books.” (Revelation 20:11-12) “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 1:5) Website:   For more resources and to sign up to receive Erin’s weekly ministry newsletter, visit Erin Olson’s ministry website, Sandalfeet Ministries, at http://www.sandalfeet.org/.   Social media links:                         Facebook: @sandalfeet                         Instagram: @erin.olson                         Twitter: @sandal_feet   Subscribe to The Depot Podcast with Erin Olson: com: https://www.charismapodcastnetwork.com/show/thedepotpodcast Libsyn RSS:  https://thedepotpodcast.libsyn.com/rss iTunes:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-depot-podcast-with-erin-olson/id1542120541 Google Play:https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly90aGVkZXBvdHBvZGNhc3QubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1yre7eBaRyJjR0pHv9EcEK?si=iKqkTp7WTS21uJz4mLrghw YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjqVlkh5Qd8XzykvkvtVbxklwMmcUCCxZ   If you are interested in being a sponsor of The Depot Podcast with Erin Olson, please email Erin at erin@sandalfeet.org for more information.

Our goal as Christians is not to build our name or fortunes, but to share His name with those who need Him. This last chapter of Acts reminds us that our lives are not about us, but all about Him.

In this episode, Erin Olson continues her series in the book of Acts. In chapter 27, Paul, under the supervision of a centurion and aided by a couple of his friends, is put on a ship to Rome. Along the way, the ship encounters a horrible Nor’easter and is battered and broken. Miraculously, everyone survives. Paul received a message from the Lord during the storm about the preservation of life. It encouraged him and he used the word to encourage the others. Things to Think About: Think of a time you found yourself in a storm. How did you feel during it? What did you do? If you’ve survived a storm, how did it change you? Did it change your relationship with the Lord?             FREE DOWNLOAD: 30 Days of Prayer for America prayer guide https://sandalfeet.org/prayer.

In this episode, Erin Olson continues her series in the book of Acts. In chapters 24, 25, and 26 Paul stands trial first before the governor, Felix and then in front of Festus. His case was then also heard in front of King Herod Agrippa II (the last of the Herod dynasty). None of them could find that Paul was guilty of anything and would have turned him loose except for the fact they wanted to find favor with the Jews (Felix was a political hack and was looking for a bribe) and Paul had requested to be heard by Caesar. Given that he was kept as a prisoner, the transport to Rome as a prisoner would be the means in which God got Paul to Rome. The continual sharing of the Gospel and the conviction brought on those who weren’t Christians by the Holy Spirit, brought a range of emotions to Paul’s listeners. Some were angered, some were frustrated, some were fearful, and some were callous. Each time Paul spoke, the people who were listening had their sins exposed in some manner. As A.W. Tozer said, “Not death but sin should be our great fear.” Things to Think About: Think of a time you were “put on trial” even though there were no charges against you and/or you were not found guilty of doing anything wrong other than being a Christian. What was the outcome? If you have never been called out for your faith, why? Are you actively engaging in sharing the Gospel with people? Or, have you isolated yourself amongst other Christians? What, if anything, can you do differently going forward?             FREE DOWNLOAD: 30 Days of Prayer for America prayer guide https://sandalfeet.org/prayer.   Website:   For more resources and to sign up to receive Erin’s weekly ministry newsletter, visit Erin Olson’s ministry website, Sandalfeet Ministries, at http://www.sandalfeet.org/.   Social media links:                           Facebook: @sandalfeet                         Instagram: @erin.olson                         Twitter: @sandal_feet   Subscribe to The Depot Podcast with Erin Olson:   com: https://www.charismapodcastnetwork.com/show/thedepotpodcast Libsyn RSS:  https://thedepotpodcast.libsyn.com/rss iTunes:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-depot-podcast-with-erin-olson/id1542120541 Google Play:https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly90aGVkZXBvdHBvZGNhc3QubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1yre7eBaRyJjR0pHv9EcEK?si=iKqkTp7WTS21uJz4mLrghw YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjqVlkh5Qd8XzykvkvtVbxklwMmcUCCxZ   If you are interested in being a sponsor of The Depot Podcast with Erin Olson, please email Erin at erin@sandalfeet.org for more information.

In this episode, Erin Olson continues her series in the book of Acts. In chapter 23, Paul stands trial before the Sanhedrin. They believe his guilt before he has a chance for a trial. They become so enraged at him, the Roman commander believes the people may tear Paul to pieces. A group of people plot to kill Paul, and God uses Paul’s nephew as a messenger of this plan to not only Paul, but also to the commander in charge. God uses the Roman army to transport Paul to Caesarea to stand before the governor, Felix.   Acts 23 exposes us to humanity, humility and hope. Key verse – verse 11: “The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, ‘Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must go and also testify in Rome.’”   Takeaways:   Trust God. Jesus is with you even if you don’t see visions or hear voices. God uses secular government to protect the peace and save lives from anarchy. Be grateful – God knows your successes and your failures.             FREE DOWNLOAD: 30 Days of Prayer for America prayer guide https://sandalfeet.org/prayer.   Website:   For more resources and to sign up to receive Erin’s weekly ministry newsletter, visit Erin Olson’s ministry website, Sandalfeet Ministries, at http://www.sandalfeet.org/.   Social media links:                           Facebook: @sandalfeet                         Instagram: @erin.olson                         Twitter: @sandal_feet   Subscribe to The Depot Podcast with Erin Olson:   com: https://www.charismapodcastnetwork.com/show/thedepotpodcast Libsyn RSS:  https://thedepotpodcast.libsyn.com/rss iTunes:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-depot-podcast-with-erin-olson/id1542120541 Google Play:https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly90aGVkZXBvdHBvZGNhc3QubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1yre7eBaRyJjR0pHv9EcEK?si=iKqkTp7WTS21uJz4mLrghw YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjqVlkh5Qd8XzykvkvtVbxklwMmcUCCxZ   If you are interested in being a sponsor of The Depot Podcast with Erin Olson, please email Erin at erin@sandalfeet.org for more information.

In this episode, Erin Olson continues her series in the book of Acts. In chapters 21 and 22, we see Paul heading to Jerusalem against the advice of the disciples. Paul wasn’t being disobedient to the Holy Spirit nor was he being disrespectful to the disciples. Paul simply knew the Holy Spirit wanted him to go to Jerusalem despite the fact he would endure pain and suffering. We can’t give in when we are scared or people are scared for us. Our purpose needs to be seen through if we want to remain obedient to the Spirit. Use the opportunity God gives to you to share the Gospel and your testimony. You never know what kind of impact this will have on people. Don’t hold back! Takeaways: Our desire to be obedient to God should overshadow our desire to avoid suffering and hardship. Find common ground with your audience. They will listen better if you do. Our testimony has power and we must share it.

In this week's episode, Erin Olson continues her teaching in the book of Acts chapter 20. Leaders and followers are not mutually exclusive but rather are dependent upon one another. Paul explains what it means to be a church leader in this chapter and provides an example to follow even still today.

In this episode, Erin Olson continues her teaching on the book of Acts. In Chapter 19, evil spirits are confronted. Sometimes, we get worried that evil spirits know who we are, but we shouldn’t. If evil spirits know who you are, it means you are doing work that penetrates the darkness.   To learn more about Erin Olson’s ministry, visit www.sandalfeet.org.

The choices we make today will impact the Gospel going forward. Sometimes it is the big things, and sometimes it is just the everyday things we do or don't do that people take notice of.

By keeping our eyes on Jesus, we remember the Gospel is always worth fighting for because people's eternity is at stake.

Facing persecution, including harassment and stoning, was something the early disciples experienced. Yet, they didn't let any of it stop them from sharing the Good News. They persevered at all costs because everything they did for the Gospel was worth it. Every life, every healing, every miracle, every new church birthed...all of it was worth it because they knew it was what they were called to do.

Aug 13

The Holy Spirit is capable of doing many things and He often leads us to others who need to know about salvation. Being able to discern the Holy Spirit is critical as well as knowing Scripture. It is also important to know who your audience is because everyone will respond to different things.

We sometimes wrongly believe that the outcome is always reliant upon our prayers. This just isn't true. Our prayers matter to God, yes, but whether He answers them the way we want them answered or not, He gets to decide the outcome. Be an active, prayerful participant. You just never know how God is going to move.

Sometimes fellow believers will come at you because of something you have done that they don't like. Instead of arguing with them, especially if it is something you feel God has called you to do and you were acting out of obedience, simply replay the entire situation for them. Let your words and the Spirit work in their hearts. You never know what might happen.

Will be uploading show notes shortly. Description: "Is God softening your heart toward a certain person or people, and most importantly, are you listening? This week's episode discusses a pivotal moment in church history...the birth of the Gentile church because two men allowed the Holy Spirit to do a work in their hearts and obeyed when they were told to do something."

When we begin to acknowledge that all calls are important for Kingdom work, we begin to allow the Spirit to tenderize our hearts for our brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as those who need to hear the Gospel.

Adversity often pushes us to do things we might not otherwise do and see people differently. In our obedience to the Holy Spirit, our eyes and hearts can be open to people and circumstances we might not otherwise make ourselves available for.

Little issues can become big issues when they are not properly addressed within the church. By properly choosing the right people to do the right tasks, the right people will be available to do the work the Lord has asked them to do. By choosing the right people, no one falls through the cracks.

Luke demonstrated his meticulous detail in Acts 5. He carefully outlined both internal and external pressures on the early church. These were real incidents then, however, we also face these same issues today; deceit, miracles, faith, obedience, authority, and the Gospel's transmission.

We need chapters like Acts 4 to help our spiritual growth and to remind us that we are to courageously proclaim God's message, be confidently at prayer, and share with others.

May 27

51 min 5 sec

In this episode, Erin Olson discusses Acts 3. There are several key things that occurred during this chapter. Peter seized on a Holy Spirit moment, a lame man was healed, and Peter preached the Gospel. How would we respond today if we were Peter? Would we just move along because we didn’t have any money or time for the beggar or would we stop to share what we, as Christians, do have? Have you ever felt like the beggar, especially as it relates to spiritual things? Have you been moved so greatly by someone else’s faith that it caused yours to be ignited? This chapter highlights for us today that we need to make sure we are seizing opportunities to share the Gospel with those whom the Holy Spirit places in our path. Are we willing to give them what we have?

God is always intentional in delivering His promises. The Day of Pentecost was no exception.

34 min 3 sec

After Jesus’s resurrection, but before His ascension, Jesus spent forty days teaching the disciples. He commanded them to not leave Jerusalem and wait for the gift that was being sent by His father (Acts 1:4). For ten days after Jesus’s ascension, the disciples obeyed this command. They gathered together waiting and praying with one another. Unlike the three days between Jesus’s death and resurrection where the disciples were scattered, this time they stayed together.  What if they hadn’t obeyed Jesus out of fear or just plain disobedience? What if they went ahead of Jesus’s plan? How different might things have turned out. Instead, we have the book of Acts. Luke’s historical account of the account between Jesus’ resurrection, ascension and the early church (about 30 years worth of history). We can learn not only a lot about the early church in this book, but we can learn a lot about ourselves through this book. How would you have responded if you were in the disciples’ shoes?    Website:  For more resources and to sign up to receive Erin’s weekly ministry newsletter, visit Erin Olson’s ministry website, Sandalfeet Ministries, at http://www.sandalfeet.org/.   Social media links:  Facebook: @sandalfeet  Instagram: @erin.olson  Twitter: @sandal_feet

In this episode, Erin Olson introduces the Bible teaching series she is launching over the next several weeks. Erin will be covering the entire book of Acts because it’s where the Church began. Erin was recently reminded that not everyone who sits in church knows the Bible, including all of the terms of context included in it.    We need to be people who get back to actively reading and studying Scripture if we want to be effective in our witness. Erin hopes to honor this part of the mission of The Depot Podcast (Equip) by doing just that.  Website:  For more resources and to sign up to receive Erin’s weekly ministry newsletter, visit Erin Olson’s ministry website, Sandalfeet Ministries, at http://www.sandalfeet.org/.   Social media links:  Facebook: @sandalfeet  Instagram: @erin.olson  Twitter: @sandal_feet

Judges 8:4 says, “Gideon and his three hundred men, exhausted yet keeping up the pursuit, came to the Jordan and crossed it.” God called Gideon, a man who felt unqualified to be used by God. Gideon started out with 32,000 men, that number dwindled to 10,000, and then ultimately to 300. God did not want the Israelites to think for one minute that their strength would win the battle. God wanted to be sure that He alone got the victory. And, He did. You may be tired right now fighting the battle God has called you to, but know that if He called you to it, He will get you through it. If you are tired, ask for His strength. God is in a season of unleashing mighty miracles for battles He is fighting right now. Where some may think victory looks hopeless, God is saying, “Wait and see what I will do.” Believe it. He is faithful. Website: For more resources and to sign up to receive Erin’s weekly ministry newsletter, visit Erin Olson’s ministry website, Sandalfeet Ministries, at http://www.sandalfeet.org/.

The farther we get from the Cross, the easier it is to forget the cost. We must never forget who paid the price. Forgiveness is a gift from God. It is free to every single person who accepts it. However, this gift came at a cost. Sadly, the farther we get from the Cross, the easier it is to forget the cost. Jesus died so that those who believe in Him can live. While we can never earn the gift of salvation, our lives should be reflective of the gratefulness of His sacrifice.

The fall of mankind occurred only three chapters into Genesis. Three chapters! In a perfect setting, the slippery serpeant uttered a few words that changed the course of history, “Did God really say?” (Genesis 3:1). Those words opened up room for doubt, curiosity, and disobedience. We have felt the effects ever since. I wonder today if those same words by Satan are being whispered in some Christian’s ears, “Did God really say?” Progressive Christianity is pushing a narrative that changes what God said is good and right according to His Word. Some are even saying that the Bible itself isn’t God’s Word. They have heard the whispers of deceit by Satan, “Did God really say?” and they have taken a bite. We cannot continue to be silent about this, especially within the Church. False doctrine must be exposed. False teachers must be called to repentance. The world will not discipline those who have gone astray. Instead, they will applaud them because those who go astray, yet still claim to be “Christian,” will look more like them and less like Jesus. And we all know, the world does not like Jesus. Charles Spurgeon said, “Anything is better than the dead calm of indifference.” Don’t settle in the camp of indifference, especially if you believe the Truth. We must speak up to expose the lies.

If they were to write your name in a book, would it say, “He/she did right in the eyes of the Lord or he/she did what was evil in the eyes of the Lord?” We are all leaders leading someone. Whether we like it or not, our decisions influence others. Loving God and loving others means that we will love Him in the choices we make and the actions we take, and that we will consider others when we do these things. Throughout the Old Testament, we saw many kings who did what was evil in the eyes of the Lord. They learned their behavior from their fathers, and their father’s father. They repeated bad behavior, and there were dire consequences for their actions. We see the same thing today. Many leaders still fail to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord. Each one of us must make the decision to resist the temptation of the devil and not do what is evil. It might look enticing, comfortable, fun, or profitable, but anything not right in the eyes of the Lord has consequences for the person as well as the people they are leading. Choose to do what is right.

A warning for people: only listen to prophecies which line up with God’s Word. Don’t fall for prophetic words confirming sin and unrighteous living. Jeremiah was a prophet who prophesied to the people of Judah for forty years. He prophesied not only to those still living in Judah, but also to those who had already been exiled to Babylon. Jeremiah came from the town of Anathoth which was known as “the city of priests.” He was called to be a prophet around the age of seventeen. People in his hometown didn’t believe his messages of repentance or destruction and wanted to kill him (Jeremiah 11:18–23). Babylon invaded Jerusalem three times before they completely destroyed it and the Temple in 586 B.C. Jeremiah was not taken captive during the early sieges. The people of Judah were being punished by God, and God chose to use the Babylonians has His weapon of choice, because they had turned away from God. He continually tried to get their attention through His spokespeople, the prophets, but the people wanted to listen to the false prophets who delivered more user-friendly prophecies.

God is constant. God is sovereign. This is true today and will be true tomorrow. God is still God whether we acknowledge Him or we don’t. God still causes the sun to rise and set regardless of whether we say His name in public or not, and regardless of whether it is allowed or not. In the book of Esther, we see the heart of a man who hated God and hated His people. Haman was an Amalekite, and Amalekites were sworn enemies of the Jews. Haman wanted nothing more to destroy a man who refused to bow down to him and seize the opportunity to take revenge on the Jewish people. Haman was consumed with power and pride. Haman’s position got him access to the king and the king issued a decree upon Haman’s urging. But God — even if He is never mentioned in the book of Esther, was at work. What looked like doom for the people of God turned into a victory that is still celebrated to this day by the Jewish people. How amazing is that?

As Christians, we need to remember our most important mission; the commission Christ gave us - share Hope. Don't hold it back and think you get to decide who gets to hear it.   Scriptures referenced: 2 Corinthians 5:17–20: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” Joshua 2 and Joshua 6 1 Corinthians 1:8–9: “On the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” Luke 15:3-7: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” Questions: When you think of the “one” who Jesus came to save, who comes to mind? If you could do one thing you deemed to be radical ministry work this year, what would it be? What, if anything, is holding you back? Do you believe the worst sinners have the same access to salvation as you do? How does your viewpoint line up with Scripture? How does it affect the way you do or don’t reach people with the Gospel?

Remembering where we came from and the grace that Christ has extended to us helps us to better reach the spiritual orphans we come into contact with everyday.   Scriptures referenced: Genesis 4:7 – “If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:12 – “You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.” Genesis 6:9 – “Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.” Genesis 12:1 – “The Lord said to Abram, ‘Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” Luke 23:34 – “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Romans 5:8 – “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” George Whitefield quote: “When you hear of a notorious sinner, instead of thinking you do well to be angry, beg of Jesus Christ to convert, and make him a monument of his free grace.”   Book: For more information about Erin Olson’s book, Spiritual Orphans: A Generation in Crisis, visit https://sandalfeet.org/spiritualorphans.

In this episode, Erin Olson discusses her book, Spiritual Orphans, and how the problems we are facing are spiritual issues manifesting themselves in the physical. We cannot experience heaven on earth with so many people disconnected from their Heavenly Father. Scriptures referenced: John 3:3, NIV: "Jesus replied, 'Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.'" Romans 5:12 NIV:“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.” Ephesians 2:8–9: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 1:4–5 :“In him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.” John 16:33: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. 1 Cor 2:14: “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.” Resources: For more information about Erin Olson’s book, Spiritual Orphans: A Generation in Crisis, visit https://sandalfeet.org/spiritualorphans.
