Translating between languages can be tricky. Sometimes one word just can’t encompass all of the nuances of meaning or one word contains the concepts of two words from another language. When translated into French from English, delight is one of these complicated words. In the French language and culture, you can’t separate the idea of delight from deliciousness. This means that God is both delightful and delicious! Stephanie Rousselle joins me in this episode to talk about how to taste the spice of the Gospel and so much more.
Stephanie is a fantastic Bible teacher. I think you’ll hear her passion for the Gospel in this episode. We talk about:
- Seeing the diversity in Christianity across continents and cultures
- Coming to Christ as an exchange student
- Recognizing nuances of meaning in words across languages
- Accepting the historical truth of the resurrection
- Realizing that relative truth holds no water
- Delighting in the Lord
- Tasting and seeing that the Lord is good
- The Four Grids: Who God Is, What God Has Done, Who We Are, and What We Do
I hope my conversation with Stephanie encourages you to taste the spice of the Gospel. I pray that you see who God is and find your identity in Him. Delight in the Lord!
