Christmas Light: When Your Debt Is Deep (Week 2)

12/9/2018
More
When Mary hears that she will be the mother of the promised Messiah, she bursts into song. In her song, she sings specifically about the special place God has in His heart toward those who are poor and lowly. In a Christmas that is marked by consumerism, how can a simple poverty reflect and reveal God’s glory?

Christmas Light: When Your Calendar Is Crazy (Week 1)

12/3/2018
More
Between holiday parties and kids programs and lots of shopping and visiting relatives, Christmas calendars can get jam packed. What’s more, just one unexpected thing can turn your calendar upside down and add to the stress of the season. The first Christmas turned Mary’s calendar upside down. Yet, out of a stressful situation came the world’s greatest gift. How can God use your stressful situations?

Willpower: Worry (Week 4)

11/25/2018
More
Worry is one of the most besetting sins of our age. From whether we will get a raise to how our kids will turn out to what the weather will bring, worry infiltrates every part and portion of our lives. Jesus calls us, instead of trying to control tomorrow, to trust in God.

Willpower: Laziness (Week 3)

11/18/2018
More
Most people would never call themselves “lazy.” But we are lazier than we think. We simply call our laziness “distraction.” How much time do we spend surfing websites or checking sports scores or just, generally, wasting time? The command against laziness is a call to focus our efforts on what actually truly matters.

Willpower: Lust (Week 2)

11/11/2018
More
There is no mistaking it: we are a culture that is sexually confused. But before we point our fingers out the sexual confusion “out there” in the world, we must take an honest look at the sexual temptation “in here” – in our hearts. God’s boundaries for human sexuality are not meant to be restricting, but loving. They allow us to model God’s love in our relationships.

Willpower: Anger (Week 1)

11/4/2018
More
With an election only two days away, tensions are high! As Christians, rather than getting angry at others, we are called to be forgiving of others. Instead of exacting vengeance, we wait for God’s justice.

Duration:00:32:25

Receipts: What I Get (Week 3)

10/28/2018
More
The riches we have received, ultimately, have nothing to do with our goodness, but with God’s grace. When was the last time we truly took stock of just how recklessly God has blessed us and just how freely God forgives us?

Duration:00:36:14

Receipts: What I Give (Week 2)

10/21/2018
More
The Christian churches in Macedonia were impoverished. But that did not stop them from being generous. So often, we create excuses not to be generous. But if we truly took stock of what we had, we might just find that we can give in ways we never imagined!

Duration:00:31:24

Receipts: What I Spend (Week 1)

10/14/2018
More
Jesus tells a story where three men receive lavish amounts of money – years’ worth of wages – from their master. Two invest the money wisely and joyously. The third is fearful and foolish. We have been lavishly blessed by God! When we spend our money, are we wise and joyful, or fearful and foolish?

Duration:00:35:59

Thoughts and Prayers: The Priority of Prayer (Week 5)

10/7/2018
More
It can be tempting to fall into a pattern of praying only in church and, perhaps, before a meal. But prayer is not an occasional activity. It is a whole way of life! When we “pray constantly,” we begin to see life differently – through God’s eyes.

Duration:00:31:03

Thoughts and Prayers: The Problem of Prayer (Week 4)

9/30/2018
More
We have all probably had a moment where we prayed for something and God said, “No.” We sometimes call these prayers “unanswered prayers.” But these are really “transforming prayers.” Even when God says, “No,” He uses His “no” to strengthen us and draw us closer to Him.

Duration:00:38:51

Thoughts and Prayers: The Path of Prayer (Week 3)

9/23/2018
More
There are ways not to pray. James discusses some of these ways in James 4:1-3. But in the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus gives us a model for all prayer. Praying for things like God’s glory, God’s provision, and God’s forgiveness are vital to prayer. Praying for these things also orients us around what matters most.

Thoughts and Prayers: The Power of Prayer (Week 2)

9/16/2018
More
The power of prayer is on its receiving end. When God receives our prayer, He answers it according to His will. Turning to God for help and guidance, then, is powerful. When we spend time in prayer, we begin to see how God has worked through prayer, which grows our faith in Him.

Thoughts and Prayers: The Privilege of Prayer (Week 1)

9/9/2018
More
The thought that the God of the universe would be interested in conversing with us can seem improbable to some. Doesn’t God have better things to do? Hebrews 4 reminds us that the proof of God’s care for us in Christ. If God has come for us in His Son, we can come to Him through His Son.

Exodus: The Face (Week 12)

9/2/2018
More
When Moses spoke with God, his face glowed. But that glow faded. We need a face that will not just temporarily shine on us, but eternally shine on us (Numbers 6:25).

Duration:00:33:08

Exodus: The Calf (Week 11)

8/26/2018
More
At the same time God is giving Moses a command to worship only Him as part of the Ten Commandments, the rest of the Israelites are building and worshipping a false God because Moses has been conversing with God for so long. At those times where God’s presence seems absent and His word and will seem distant, we must not fall into the temptation to look for another god.

Duration:00:35:00

Exodus: The Presence (Week 10)

8/19/2018
More
God promises to be with His people, enthroned on the Ark of the Covenant. At the center of the Ark is a mercy seat, which covers the Ten Commandments kept inside the Ark. When we break God’s commandments, mercy covers us!

Duration:00:35:49

Exodus: The Commandments (Week 9)

8/12/2018
More
God gives His people Ten Commandments not to burden them, but to free them by guiding them. When God gives commands, He does so with our best interest at heart. Divine commandments not only reveal God’s will, but His tender heart toward us.

Duration:00:36:49

Exodus: The Water (Week 8)

8/5/2018
More
The Israelites just faced too much water as they stared down the Red Sea. Now they face the danger of too little water as they swelter in a desert. God provides water from a rock, which Paul says is nothing less than Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4).

Duration:00:29:23

Exodus: The Provision (Week 7)

7/29/2018
More
God has provided for Israel through rescuing Israel from their slavery. But no matter what God does for the Israelites, they always seem to want more. In Exodus 16, God provides bread from heaven, which prefigures God’s provision in Christ as the Bread from heaven (cf. John 6:51).
