My Pain is Not Fruitless (Week 3)

4/15/2018
More
The prophet Jeremiah was known as “the weeping prophet” because his ministry was so difficult. Though, in our culture, we try to avoid pain as much as possible, pain can have a purpose in God’s Kingdom. If God can use the pain of His Son to save the world, He can use our pain to touch the lives of others with His truth.

My Past is Not Fatal (Week 2)

4/8/2018
More
We can be enslaved by guilt to the sin of our past. Yet, no matter how bad our sin may look to others or feel to us, the promise of the gospel is this: sin has been overcome by Christ! In John 21, Jesus walks Peter through his sin to forgive him of his sin. Jesus can do the same thing with us!

Easter Celebration! "My Death is Not Final"

4/1/2018
More
The story of Easter is amazing, but it only portends an even better story to come – the story when we will be raised to everlasting life! In a world where we see so much despair, anguish, and even death, the message of Easter is this: the life that God promises is bigger than the pain that sin brings.

Love Is... Fulfilling Promises (Week 6)

3/25/2018
More
Jesus knows He will soon die when He rides into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Yet, He goes to Jerusalem anyway. Matthew says He does so, in part, to fulfill a prophecy from Zechariah. Jesus keeps this promise in the prophecy out of His love for us.

Love Is... Truthful (Week 5)

3/18/2018
More
Achan’s lie hurts not only Achan, but the whole Israelite community. To love someone is to tell the truth, even when the truth embarrasses us, or is tough for them to hear.

Duration:00:34:06

Love Is... Not Irritable (Week 4)

3/11/2018
More
In Jesus’ parable, a judge gives a woman what she wants because she won’t stop bothering her and it irritates him! Jesus promises that, no matter how many times we “bother” God, He will never become irritated with our pleas!

Duration:00:36:26

Love Is... Not Rude (Week 3)

3/4/2018
More
It is easy to be rude when someone angers you. But rudeness only ruins relationships! When we are tempted to be rude, we should instead forgive someone for whatever it is that is tempting us toward rudeness.

Duration:00:35:06

Love Is... Not Envious (Week 2)

2/25/2018
More
It was envy that got Jesus killed. The religious leaders were jealous that Jesus was smarter than them and had a more devoted following than them. Their envy led to death. Envy always kills – it kills joy, it kills fulfillment, and, many times, it kills achievement, because it’s so busy complaining about what it doesn’t have that it forgets to grow into what it could have.

Duration:00:38:53

Love Is... Patient (Week 1)

2/18/2018
More
Saul was not patient in waiting for Samuel to make a burnt offering and give him a word from the Lord. Because of Saul’s lack of patience, Israel’s kingship was lost to his family. Impatience results in loss. This is why God is so patient with us – because He wants to keep us (cf. 2 Peter 3:9)!

Conversation Starters: Be Brave (Week 1)

2/11/2018
More
It can be scary to witness to the Christian faith! Jesus’ frank witness to who He was got Him crucified. Sometimes, we need to tell the truth, even if it is uncomfortable or frightening. Like Jesus, being brave should never mean being obnoxious. But it can mean telling the truth, even when the truth will cost us.

Duration:00:34:56

Conversation Starters: Ask a Question (Week 1)

2/4/2018
More
Jesus knows that sometimes a pointed question can be just the thing needed to open a deeper conversation. When Jesus asks the disabled man by the pool, “Do you want to get well?” He is opening up a conversation about what this man believes. Does he believe, superstitiously, that some magic pool can heal him, or is he looking for healing from the Son of God? What questions can we ask to identify people’s spiritual beliefs and needs.

Year in Review: Peace (Week 4)

1/28/2018
More
Though nations like North Korea have rattled sabers for a long time, 2017 seemed to mark an uptick in such provocations, especially from the isolated nation. And awfully, ISIS is still wreaking havoc across the world. In a world that feels dangerous and frightening, God promises peace. But His peace can only come to us when we believe that He – and not we – has everything under control.

Year in Review: Fidelity (Week 3)

1/21/2018
More
Sadly, scandals of infidelity and assault dominated many of the headlines of 2017. In a world that has divorced intimacy from commitment, Jesus reminds us that true intimacy must be bounded by and grounded in a marital covenant.

Year in Review: Creation (Week 2)

1/14/2018
More
Hurricanes, wildfires, and even a total solar eclipse. Nature made a lot of headlines in 2017! It can seem as though nature is fickle. But we must remember that with natural disasters also come natural wonders. And even in natural disasters, we can be confident that Christ is Lord over nature. So, in storms, we fix our eyes on Him.

Year in Review: Community (Week 1)

1/7/2018
More
Mass shootings in places like Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs were major headlines in 2017. But from a place of tragedy arose a stronger community. As God’s people, we have the privilege of being a part of the ultimate community – the Church. In the Church, we rejoice in the hope we have while also sharing the burdens of those caught in tragedies, understanding that God can use tragedy to strengthen His community.

The Grief that Stole Christmas (Week 4)

12/17/2017
More
As joyful as the holiday season is supposed to be, for some, this time of year brings grief, especially if they have recently lost a loved one. Jesus too knows the pain of loss. He weeps with you in your loss. But He can also overcome your loss with His promise of everlasting life.

Duration:00:39:44

The Conflict that Stole Christmas (Week 3)

12/10/2017
More
When families get together, conflict can abound. We can get frustrated with each other instead of celebrating with each other. James reminds us that, instead of fighting with others, we can trust in God to bring ultimate justice to all, even when we feel as though others have wronged us.

The Schedule that Stole Christmas (Week 2)

12/3/2017
More
During the holidays, there are parties to attend and presents to buy and relatives to visit and too many things to do! The stress of the season can steal joy from the season. It is important that, rather than overscheduling ourselves, we take time for rest and, when we need it, be willing to ask for help.

The Materialism that Stole Christmas (Week 1)

11/26/2017
More
It is easy to get so focused on the gifts of Christmas that we forget about the Gift of Christmas! Materialism is rampant not only during the holidays, but in our society, all year long. In Luke 12, Jesus tells a parable that reminds us that the earthly things we store up for ourselves are not nearly as important as the spiritual inheritance that is ours in Christ.
