If you know anything about Stephanie, you know she is a huge The Chosen fan! So what a joy to welcome Lara Silva to Gospel Spice! Lara plays Eden, who is the feisty, faith-filled, big-dream wife of Simon-Peter in the show. Lara tells us about how her own personality influences the character of Eden, and how her own personal life experiences have prepared her for this role (Lara even gets emotional when sharing such deep intimate details!). She tells us about her faith, her spiritual routine, and how Jesus has truly transformed her life, giving her a purpose and a passion. She seeks to glorify Him and delight in Him, and that makes her a true Gospel Spice girl!

Lara invites us to obey and follow Jesus all the way, letting Him come near to transform us. She looks back at who she used to be, and looks forward to the person God is shaping her to become. 

Lara shares about her favorite spice, of course, and how her Brazilian roots and culture are so much a part of her daily experience of Scripture.

Binge more exclusive The Chosen | Gospel Spice content! In the past Stephanie has welcomed Dallas and Amanda Jenkins (episode 88 | listen here) as well as Chad Gundersen and Chris Juen, who are the executive producers for the show (episode 123 | listen here). 

GOD'S GLORY, OUR DELIGHT | THE GOSPEL SPICE SERIES

Delighting in the glory of God. Does this concept strike you as reserved for spiritual contemplatives? What if, instead, it proved the highly practical, deeply foundational perspective you need right now?

Why does God’s glory even matter in our day and age? How can we learn from Jesus to make His glory our true North and lifelong quest? What keeps us from fully stepping into this God-ordained purpose for our life? How do we kindle delight for God on a daily basis? And, once we have embraced God’s glory as our heart’s true delight, how can we then come alongside others?

Join us to cultivate a sincere delight for God’s glory, rooted in an honest, hard look at the depth of our need, and in the much deeper Reality of His grace. Trace the glory of God through Scripture and in your own life. Behold the exact radiance of God’s glory, revealed in Jesus. Learn to see yourself as Christ does—through the lens of the Father’s love at the cross. Jesus offers to overwhelm our deadly self-centeredness with His resurrection power. He carries us every step of the way, even as He calls us to true humility on the path to glory.

Who has time to cultivate the delight that comes from pondering the glory of God? And yet, nothing could be more urgent today. Marthas and Marys, Peters and Johns—we are all invited to dare to dream of a lifestyle of God-centered delight. Nothing could be more practical.
