Prayer

Prayer

2021-01-1735:18

Do you believe in the power of prayer? Is it something that you do once a day, a few times a day, or is it something you only do on a rare occasion? In Luke 11:9-10, Jesus says, “And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”Because of the words of Jesus, we know that we can pray boldly to Him, because He listens. Will you choose to ask and seek from Him with confidence today?Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Scripture

Scripture

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work."The Bible is God's very own words to us. It's supernatural, transformational, and purposeful for every part of life. But if we're honest with ourselves, we often set aside His words and allow other voices to grab a hold of our attention and hearts. Are you listening to His voice in the scriptures today?Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)

When looking at the story of Jesus' birth, we often times only think of the good and miss When we look at the story of Jesus' birth, we often only think of the good and we miss seeing how dark, broken, and scary it truly was for Mary and Joseph. Imagine the unknown and the uncertainty. Imagine how it could weigh them down and bind them in fear and worry.However, in Luke 1:46-55 we see Mary's incredible response while being in the dark. She chooses to lift a song of praise and magnify the Lord in the midst of the uncertainty and waiting. This poses a question for us: How will we respond? Will we choose to complain and worry, or will we lift up song of praise and worship our God in the middle of the darkness?Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Immanuel

Immanuel

2020-12-0639:37

"She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us)." Matthew 1:21-23 God with us.  Many times we are faced with unexpected situations in life we never think we'd face. Mary and Joseph's lives were changed when they were chosen to be the parents of the Son of God, Jesus. What did they feel? What did they think? Through the hardest and most unknown seasons, through the darkness moments, God is with us. He is Immanuel, the one who never has left nor will abandon us in the journey. Love came down to dwell among us. To walk among us. To be  Immanuel—God with us. Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
A Royal Priesthood

A Royal Priesthood

2020-11-2939:03

1 Peter 2:9 says, "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." Most times, when we think of the word "priesthood", the last thing that comes to mind is ourselves. However, the Word of God teaches us that as followers of Christ, that's exactly what we are. But what makes us "a royal priesthood" and why are we all considered a priest?Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)

Ambassador

2 Corinthians 5:17-18 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." It's hard to imagine ourselves as "new" when we have so many things we hold onto from our past. But if Jesus came to make all things "new"—including us—what does that say about who we are and how we should live? Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Free

Free

2020-11-1639:40

Are you set free? It sounds like a simple question, but the funny thing about freedom is that it’s something we chase and chase from one degree to the next. It’s exhausting. And somehow, it always feels like we can look to something else and say, “That would give me more freedom.” Christians, freedom is part of our identity. The fight for our truest freedom has been won. So why are we still fighting? Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
It's no question that, as humans, we like to find our identity in things we were never meant to identify with. This year especially, as our lives as we knew them were shaken up, we realized how much we found ourselves in our jobs, our relationships, our finances, our political parties... and the list can go on. But the Bible has something else to say. "Adopted" is one of our truest identities in Christ, and that relationship we have with God cannot be changed, no matter the circumstances we find ourselves in. How does that shape the way we live? Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Let's call it like it is: November 3rd, 2020 will be chaos. The presidential race will reach its final days, and America will wait in anticipation to see just where the country is headed and with what leader at the forefront. Where should Christians fall in the midst of it? How do we engage in politics? Do we vote Republican, or do we vote Democrat? Do we vote at all? This is an important message for Christians before Election Day. Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Set the Table

Set the Table

2020-10-2633:46

Love earnestly. Not moderately. Not when you "feel like it." Not only when it's easy. To love earnestly is a sacrifice, but it's one of our greatest callings—to love people in a way that requires setting aside our differences, our circumstances, and our comfort so that they can feel an earnest love like Jesus'. If you can set a table and open your door, you can be the most powerful version of the church. Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Wreck the Roof

Wreck the Roof

2020-10-1941:47

Read the story of Mark 2. Think about the friends of the paralytic. When they couldn't get through the crowd to get to Jesus, they wrecked the roof—literally. It was risky and dangerous… but they saw what Jesus could do and wanted that for their friends too. The beauty of what Christ did for the paralytic was that he went beyond meeting an immediate physical need—he first healed him spiritually. A question to ask this week: Who is a friend that you'd wreck the roof for if it meant they'd know Jesus? Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Abiding in Jesus

Abiding in Jesus

2020-10-1238:23

a·bide (verb): to dwell in; to make one’s home in. What does this mean in our relationship with God—to truly abide and rest in Christ? If you’re living a life that feels too busy to even live… this is for you. Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)

Walk the Line

Walk the Line

2020-09-2837:35

Are you on the edge of something big, or feeling like God is calling you to a new thing... but you're just not sure? Or maybe you're in the middle of uncertain times and you just want to "jump ship"... but the water seems rocky and it would take a big step of faith to do that. Here's a reminder: Sometimes, to see what Jesus wants to do in our lives, we have to step out of our comfort zones—out of the certainty of the boat and into the choppiness of the water—to see our faith come to life.  Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Between God's promises and His payoff is a process, and when we try to do things on our time, we end up with short-term payoff... but long-term pain. Why is there a waiting season, we ask? It's because all fruit has a season. A waiting season is never a wasted season. What is God trying to do in you while He's asking you to wait? "It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord." Lamentations 3:26Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Don't Keep The Change

Don't Keep The Change

2020-09-1337:59

God has reconciled us to be reconcilers. When we experience the life-changing grace of Jesus, it's not just for us to keep to ourselves. We have been given a ministry to be like the friends of the paralytic, who each took a corner of the mat where the paralyzed man lay and brought him closer to Jesus for healing. Are you keeping the change to yourself? Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)

The things we feel about ourselves—that we aren't good enough, smart enough, worthy enough—may be real, but that doesn't make them true. Here is some good news: God does not measure us by how much we resemble Christ, but instead by how much we are in Christ. "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Living Out Who You Are

Living Out Who You Are

2020-08-3034:29

The Christian life means living out who you are in Christ. Sin says you’re stuck where you are, but grace says Jesus comes to you. How would you live differently if you lived in this truth? Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
Framework For Change

Framework For Change

2020-08-2439:22

We are the living stones being stacked together into a house where the Spirit dwells, and there’s a degree of the presence of God that we'll never experience unless we take the living stones of our lives and cement them together in gospel community. Peter's message to us is that our faith can be personal, but it's not designed to be private. Being in community is the framework for change in our lives. Support the show (http://bit.ly/2NZkdrC)
