July 5 – Where This Glory Takes Us


Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 4:12-18

It is hard to get our minds around how different living and thinking like Jesus is. Sure, we know about giving up sin, but thinking like Jesus is much more. God is inviting us through Paul to see how much better it is to see life as Jesus sees it.

June 28 – Who Does God Use?

Scripture(s): John 21:3-17

Jesus saw His disciples after the resurrection.  These men were hurting.  They were confused.  Some were waiting for marching orders, but were also ready to quit and go back home. They sound like us.

June 21 – The Glory of Being Clay Pots


2 Corinthians 4:5-11

The good news of Jesus is designed to be an earthquake in our lives. This good news is supposed to change everything important. If it hasn’t, then perhaps we should look deeper.

June 14 – The Glory of the Gospel in Us.

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 4:1-6

The Bible describes the gospel as glorious. If the gospel is so glorious and we know it, then how do we show it? What does the glory of the gospel make us do?

June 7 – Why We Find our Confidence in Jesus

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 3:7-18


A key theme of the scriptures is that Christians must live by a different set of standards than the rest of the world. The ability and willingness to live by these standards is called boldness. Where does this boldness come from?

May 31 – Be Real

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 2:12-3:6

Pain and struggle can make us feel unusable. We feel small or scarred or imperfect. We may be those things, but God uses people just like us everyday.

May 24 – The Motive of Forgiveness

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 2:5-11

If you have ever heard the call to forgive as simple or easy, let us dispel that right now. It’s not. We don’t forgive because it is easy. We forgive because forgiveness is the path to life.

May 17 – When Those You Love Fail

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 1:23-2:4

There is a type of struggle that too often we know intimately: arguments. The hardest of those arguments happen when those we love are walking down a path that will hurt them. The passage today is NOT giving us steps to follow. (It is not the action.) Our passage is revealing the spirit and the motive that must be behind the action if Christ-honoring healing is going to occur.

May 10 – Jesus – God’s Yes

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 1: 20-22

What does it mean when someone says something?  It tells us about the person’s attitude, personality, and character. It tells us what they care about. What does it mean when God says something? Don’t we learn the same types of things? 

May 3 – Making Us Worth Listening To


Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 1:12-19

A clean mirror is a good mirror. The same will be true of those who want to follow Christ. We reflect Jesus to others. We can either do it well or do it poorly. When we do it well, that reflection is one that people trust when the hard times come.

April 26 – Suffering and Tunnel Vision


Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 1:8-11

Our struggles do something to our vision – they turn it into tunnel vision. We only see what is in front of us. Suffering and struggles also affect another sensation – our feeling of the passing of time. We can come to think that suffering is forever. How can we know that it is not forever?

April 19 – Why Struggles?


2 Corinthians 1:1-7

The reason we struggle with suffering and how to handle it is because we don’t understand it. Why do we have to suffer? Saying that it is just the product of a fallen world is not good enough. We want to know: What is God doing with our suffering?!

April 12 – The Everyday Power of the Resurrection


Scripture(s): Romans 1-4, Ephesians 1:18-21; 1 Corinthians 15

We see how the resurrection shifted the way the early disciples saw their universe. It changed them. So, if we embrace what the resurrection means then it will surely change us.

April 5 – Another Resistant Hearer

Scripture(s): John 4:1-30

There are people who resist the gospel. The exciting thing is that the gospel reaches people like that all the time.

March 29 – Declaring God’s Faithfulness

Scripture(s):  Acts 27-28

Faithfulness is an impressive thing.  It can push back worry.  It can calm fear.  Faithfulness can give hope when hope seems impossible.

March 22 – Seeking Those Who Are Lost

Scripture(s): Mark 2:1-12

Beliefs matter. Real beliefs make us either act or not act. Our belief in Jesus and the destructiveness of sin must make us act.

March 15 – A Church that Prays

Guest speaker Warren Jernstad shares from the book of Acts how the church must be a church that prays.

March 8 – Jesus, The God Who Saves

Scripture(s): 1 John 5:20-21

Our Lord’s first name means something.  It means the God who saves. It is more than a title.  It is a statement of fact.

March 1 – There is Real Life in Christ!

Scripture(s): 1 John 5:18-19

How can we break the cycle of sin in our life?  We break it by refusing to believe the lie that everyone is basically good.  We break it when we stop believing the lies.

February 23 – The Hope and the Pain

Scripture(s): 1 John 5:16-17

God’s call for prayer in our passage is about sin.  However, it is also about the person who is sinning.  Which message do we need to hear: be fervent in prayer or consider the choice that the struggling person faces?

February 16 – Trust Leads to Confidence

Scripture(s): 1 John 5:14-15

Have you ever thought about how confident you are when you pray? Confidence in prayer comes as we grow in our trust.  Confidence comes because we know the truth.  It is time to think about what truths that trust does show us.

February 9 – Know God’s Proof

Scripture(s): 1 John 5:10-13

What reason do we have for trusting Jesus?  We do not know the future.  We do not always understand the present.  He does.  Will we trust him?

February 2 – Who Will You Believe?

Scripture(s): 1 John 5:6-9

One of the most difficult questions we will ever deal with is who we believe.  That question is the one we face as we consider our lives and our God.  Will we listen to Him, ourselves, or others?

January 26 – The Taste Test

Scripture(s): 1 John 5:1-5

Some people treat their lives like a mixture.  A little of this, a little of that.  Jesus challenges us to make Him our whole life.  That is the only way to live the good life God has designed us to live.

January 19 – The Proof of Truth

Scripture(s): 1 John 4:15-21

In our day and age it is difficult to know the truth from a lie.  We are making promises when we share Christ’s truth with others.  How do they know it is all we claim it is?

January 12 – Love Working in You

Scripture(s): 1 John 4:7-14

The world suffers from a thirst for love.  No, it doesn’t always thirst for expressions of love.  No, it doesn’t always hunger for words of love.  However, all of us hunger and thirst for real, abiding love.

January 5 – Year of Challenge

Over this past year, God has taught us through the book of Joshua, through a study of what the average Christian can do (it’s more than we sometimes think!), and we are currently in the middle of our study of 1 John.
