June 25 – The Serious Nature of Rebuilding

Scripture(s): Ezra 2

Too often, people who say that they want to change quit.  They don’t quit because they are weak or foolish.  They quit because they didn’t realize the commitment real change takes.

June 18 – How Does Rebuilding Start?

Scripture(s): Ezra 1

Jeremiah was given the vision of the potter.  He was told that the flaws in the clay would destroy.  However, he was also told that the Potter could do amazing things.  He could rebuild!

June 11 – What you Do Matters

Scripture(s): 1 & 2 Thessalonians

The secret to the passionate Christian life is not found in our personalities or even our gifts.  The passionate Christian life is found in the genuine belief that the One we love will use us to make a difference.

June 4 – Christianity is not a Belief

Scripture(s): Colossians 1-4

Many people treat our faith as if it is a philosophy or information.  That is so enlightenment of us: we make salvation into a set of principles to follow.  The Bible is a little more old fashioned.  Salvation is a person – Jesus.

May 28 – No Lone Ranger Christians

Scripture(s): Philippians 1-4

Lone Ranger Christians are a contradiction.  If we violate body life on purpose, there are consequences.  It hurts our relationship with God and our understanding of ourselves.

May 21 – You are Not Too Small

Scripture(s): Ephesians 1-4

Scripture is clear.  Looking powerless doesn’t matter.  Power is not found in how we look or how we feel.  True ability to affect change is found in Jesus.

May 14 – Following the Rules to Be Safe

Scripture(s): Galatians 1-4

We need to take a hard look at why we do the right things.  Reasons matter.  If we are trying to be good by doing good, it may cost us more than we know.

May 7 – Personal Fulfillment?

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 1-6

We are told that we should chase after number one.  The problem is that the world has identified the wrong number one.

April 30 – It’s never about what you know

Scripture(s): 1 Corinthians 1, 2, 3

It may surprise us, but knowledge does not make us better people.  It doesn’t make us more Godly. We want it to, but there is only one things that has always made us more Godly – walking with Christ.

April – 23 – I Am Good Enough

Scripture(s): Romans 1, 2, 3

People consistently act like Jesus is optional to life.  Why is that?  It is because we are many times under a very powerful delusion: we are good enough just the way we are.  The book of Romans was written to answer that delusion.

April 16 – Our Reason to Rejoice

Scripture(s): Ephesians 1:20-23

It is easy to get discouraged with the storms and battering of life. The greatest discouragement comes when we forget the power that is with us.  The resurrection reminds us of the power of Christ in our life.

April 9 – The Glorious Cross

Scripture(s): 1 Corinthians 1:18-24

The world feels free to criticize.  Yet, the gospel is truly glorious!  Let’s see how. Today is the day we need to embrace the glorious cross!

April 2 – Why go on Mission Trips?

Scripture(s): Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 16:9-10; Hebrews 12:1-3

In our walk with Jesus, we can start to get used to where we have already been.  Growth happens when we follow Him in a new area.  It happens when we follow in a way that way we’ve never imagined before.

March 26 – Why Share Jesus?

Scripture(s): Acts 4:1-12; Mark 9:42-48; 1 John 3:1-3

It is a valid question – What gives you the right to evangelize, proselytize, witness? Or to put it another way… Is it right to evangelize?

March 19 – Why Grace & Love?

Scripture(s): Luke 6:31-36; Matthew 7:1-5; 1 John 4:18-19

When we interact with people an unusual test of our faith occurs.  It is the test of judgment.  In other words, do we really believe that God will handle all the conviction our friends and family need?  Or, do we need to help Him a bit?

March 12 – Why Do I Give?

Scripture(s): 2 Corinthians 8-9; Luke 16:8-12

Our giving is a reflection.  It is a reflection of who we are and what we value.  We may not like the reflection, but our actions follow our character.

March 5 – Why Do I Serve?

Scripture(s): Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Peter 4:8-11; 1 Corinthians 12:27-31

Serving is not about what we have to do.  God honoring service is what we get to do.  It is what we are happy to give our family of faith.

February 26 – Why so Passionate?

  • note: the sound quality of the recording changes at the very end of the message due to a technical problem

Scripture(s): Psalm 73:25-26; Matthew 6:21; Psalm 84:2; Isaiah 26:8-9; Ephesians 5:15-21; Romans 12:10-11

The question of passion is not is God worth it.  The question of passion is can others see what God is worth to me. So, can they?

February 19 – Special Guest Ron Kallem

February 12 – Why THIS Church?

Scripture(s): 1 Corinthians 1:2-9; Matthew 15:3-9; Romans 12:9-13

We give ourselves to serve a church not because of what it does for us.  We commit to a church because of what it does right.

January 29 – Why Do I Commit to the Church?

Scripture(s):  1 Corinthians 12:12-26; Matthew 28:19-20; Hebrews 10:23-25

I am a part of several groups.  However, I am truly committed to only one: the church.  Why?

January 22 – Why Do I Trust the Bible?

Scripture(s): Psalm 19:7-14; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 12:1; Psalm 34:4-7; John 17:14-17

The Bible is unique among all types of books.  The Bible is unique in what it claims to be.  It claims to be the first and last authority to living.

January 15 – Why Do I Believe?

Scripture(s): Psalm 19:1-5; Romans 1:20, 2:14-15; 1 John 4:7-9, 3:10; 1 Peter 1:15-16; John 10:37-38, 5:31-34

I am not here today to convince you to believe.  I just want to share why I believe.  God may use it how He sees fit.

January 8 – Sheep and Goats

Sheep and Goats

Scripture(s): Matthew 25:31-46

When bad things happen almost everyone asks why.  The better question is where are God’s people! Will they do anything?

January 1 – Living Like He’s Coming

Scripture(s): Matthew 25:1-30

The call of Jesus will either be a “nice idea” or our life’s purpose and goal.  How we see His return will make all the difference.
