Taste the delight and see the beauty of knowing Christ | with Tara Leigh Cobble

Taste and see that the Lord is good! | The Bible Recap

Season 8, episode 172
46 min / Published

Has reading the Bible ever felt like a chore? Have you ever wondered how to delight in God? How can love for God be your most tangible reality? How can we nurture a culture of curiosity and learning from one another, rather than be afraid of our differences? Stephanie welcomes Tara Leigh Cobble, the founder and CEO of D-Group and host of the Bible Recap podcast—and, most importantly, fellow lover of Jesus Christ! Together they weave an impromptu conversation that invites you to TASTE the delight AND SEE the beauty of knowing Christ more deeply! Their contagious passion for Scripture, their eclectic experiences of cultures, and their common excitement about knowing Jesus more will inspire you to delight in Him in fresh, spicy new ways. Tara-Leigh shares about recent archeological discoveries in Israel - including a synagogue in Magdala where Jesus most likely taught, and the very palace of King David. She shares her passion for Israel because it is a great way to fall deeper in love with Jesus!!

Tara-Leigh shares her concerns for our generation, and her perspective on how to inspire our generation to delight in God. She explains how the Bible went from boring and unpleasant, to delightful and her ultimate delight! She also draws out attention to the dangers of taking Bible verses out of context and the essential nature of placing our Bible readings within context. 

Finally, Tara-Leigh gives us a clear call to unity, humility, and curiosity. What can we learn from one another? How do cultures and personality differences enrich our lives instead of creating fear of difference?

Join them over a cup of coffee, with your Bible open and your heart ready to hear from God about how to grow your intimacy with Him today! Stephanie teared up and Tara-Leigh could not stop smiling from ear to ear—these are unmistakable pointers to God’s presence and goodness!

God's glory, our delight 



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.
