Messy Grace: Love Like Jesus

There is not a place in our culture where grace and truth collide than in the definition of human sexuality. How the church treats and responds to the LGBT community displays the love of Jesus more than our words ever will. It’s not easy to stand in the tension of grace and truth, but it […]

Redeem The Screen: Hurtful People

Difference in the kingdom of Jesus is beautiful. Division is ugly. To eliminate division we have to humble ourselves and take on the character of Jesus for those who are different, disagree, and do evil against us. Jesus calls His disciples to a kingdom of non-retaliation. We love because of how Jesus loves us. Our […]

Redeem The Screen: Constant and Consistent

Why should we choose to use the gifts God gives us? What’s the point? Love is the foundation of what God does in our lives. For others to see how God is transforming our lives, love must be in every area of our life. Love must be constant and consistent for others to see Christ. […]

Redeem The Screen: Design

As Jesus people when we live just trying to fit into the world, we miss God’s unique design for each of us. We are not designed to be like everyone else. Comparison tarnishes God’s design in us, while the Cross restores us.

Redeem the Screen: Influence

Screens are everywhere around us. The truth is, what is around us shapes what’s in us and what is in us shapes who we are. Screens can either make us more or less like Jesus. As followers, because of everything Jesus has done for us, we are called to bring everything we have to him. […]

Rhythm: Rest

Tired? Exhausted? Worn out? Chances are we are missing the rhythm of rest. Rest has been the design of God since the very beginning, but many times is last on our list. The rhythm of rest is the antidote for our ragged soul. Matthew 11:28-30, Matthew 12:1-14.

Rhythm: Generosity

The rhythm that Jesus lived with the greatest detail is giving. Living in such a way that everything we have is His, is a distinct characteristic of a Jesus follower. It’s not about the value, but the willingness to let go. Generosity is the rhythm of getting God’s resources where God wants them to go. […]

Rhythm: Fasting

In a world that says consume more, the rhythm of fasting seems like a foreign language. Fasting is the sacrificing of what is common, to connect with God in an uncommon way. We see this rhythm embodied by Jesus as He desired to know more of His Father. As we practice this rhythm in our […]

Rhythm: God’s Word

Rhythms are unique nuances of life that create who we are. As Jesus people, our rhythms should be built around Jesus. When we look at His life, we find that Jesus had rhythms that kept Him focused on the Father. This first for Him and us is to build our lives on scripture. If God’s […]

Summer Jams: God With Us

God always wants to be with His people. Sin made that difficult because a Holy God cannot reside with sinful people. He created a strategy in the Old Testament to dwell among His people and then changed the strategy through Jesus. Our freedom is no longer tied to an intricate set up and tear down, […]
