Summer Jams: Inadequacy

We typically see the worst of ourselves. We filter our lives through our worst qualities. We doubt our abilities and it steals our freedom in life. When God sees us as able, our resistance is not a lack of ability, it is a lack of obedience. God sees us as forgiven not filtered. Exodus 3-4.

Scattered Hope: In the Middle of Worry

Worry and anxiety are a battle in our world now more than ever. Satan captures our mind and convinces us of the worst when God always wants what is best. He is walking with us through the battles of life, we just have to trust and humble ourselves in His power. Humility is the cure […]

Scattered Hope: Looking To The Future

As Jesus people, it is essential for us to look to the future and not get lost in the difficulties of today. How we spend our time shows what we value in the world. Our future with Jesus far outweighs our present difficulty right now. 1 Peter 4:1-6.

Scattered Hope: In Our Response

Our response to the hope of Jesus is what people will see. Others will understand Jesus by the way we respond to confrontation. We can choose to respond in a way that points to Jesus or drives people away. Our response is only as good as our reputation. 1 Peter 3:13-22.

Scattered Hope: Who We Are

Jesus changes not just what we do, but who we are. We are a new people, set a part from the world. When we remember who we are we don’t get stuck in what we want. We are worshipers not wanters. 1 Peter 2:1-10.

Scattered Hope: Hope No Matter What

When the church is scattered everywhere, God does amazing things. When we follow Jesus, we are given a distinct characteristic that defines our lives outside of the circumstances of the world. That characteristic is hope. The hope beyond us should shape the way we see the world around us. 1 Peter 1:1-12.

Jesus, Why? – Why Does This Still Matter?

Why does the message of Easter still matter today? Why do we still celebrate what Jesus did 2000 years later? The fact that Jesus walked out of a tomb, still changes us today. It redefines our futures. In Jesus, freedom always defines tomorrow! Luke 24:45-49.

Jesus, Why? – Why Do You Love Me?

It’s hard to understand why Jesus could possibly love us. We know how screwed up we are and we know how screwed up the world is around us, but because of some incredible reason, Jesus still chose to love us. It is because His love was built on Him, not us. Luke 23:32-43.

Jesus, Why? – Why Do I Give?

We all have questions about Jesus. One of the biggest is why we should follow Him. Especially when we see what it costs us in this world. But we can’t look at the cost without recognizing the reward. The reward that Jesus brings to our lives reaches into eternity. We follow Jesus because of the […]
