In part 1 of Jonah, we cover the first chapter, which sets up the book. There are so many themes in the Book of Jonah, but we’ll focus on the theme of God’s over-riding love and long suffering nature, especially as it relates to His call on our life to “go.”
To cap off our series, we’ll spend a little more time in our theme verses (Eph 5:15-17) and end by getting super practical in Galatians 5. If we walk in the Spirit, we won’t gratify the desires of the flesh. This series is full of conditional statements. Could it be that walking with God is […]
When we’re young, we don’t realize how fast time passes. As the years pass and we experience the harsh truths of this world, we grow more acquainted with our finiteness. We’ll zero in on Psalm 90:12, which states, “Teach us to number our days, so that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Paired with […]
We see in Proverbs that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. If that’s the case, true wisdom is found only in God. Any pursuit of wisdom from other avenues will end up being worthless. Proverbs 2 gives us a picture of how we receive that wisdom. James also reminds us that […]
In Part 2 of “How Does God Speak To Us,” we build on the foundation of part 1, where we talked about how we discern the will of God. In this message, we look at 1 Kings 19, where Elijah has a meeting with God and hears God as a “gentle whisper” or “still, small […]
This series is all about recognizing the voice of God. In week 1, we get super specific and try to discern His voice as it relates to His will for our lives. This was such a fun sermon, as we got some help from a three year old and a helpful prop to illustrate the […]
Last week, we introduced a new series called, “How Does God Speak To Us?” We were talking about some pretty heavy stuff (God’s will). So, I did what any self-respecting, Bible-preaching pastor would do. I asked my son to help me. I interviewed him about stocks, which truck to buy, the Super Bowl, and a […]
This stand-alone sermon sets up the heart for our student ministry. The prodigal son is a beautiful picture of those coming home; yet the picture of the older brother shows us how “church people” can grow cold to those who come to Jesus. We have to keep our focus!
Happy New Year! Here’s a quick snapshot of what we’re doing to kick off the new year in our student ministry!
To cap off the series, Mark tells a story about how God interrupted his life with an opportunity to step into God’s work. To sum it up, all Christians are on mission. The end of the message (and the series) comes back to the Christmas story, and why it matters for our everyday lives more […]
