Jesus makes a big statement about his exclusive nature–he is the way and the truth. What happens when we compromise this truth? From John 14.
Jesus invites the world to follow him. Yet Jesus is very clear discipleship comes with a cost. In Luke 14 he provides full disclosure and calls us to have considered the implications.
Choosing Joy in Mistreatment
In Matthew 5 Jesus says people who experience mistreatment for his name are blessed. In fact, they choose joy in midst of it. How can we develop persecution-proof hearts?
Cut It Out
In Mark 9 it looks like Jesus is taking things a little too far. But he’s urgently pleading with us to take sin more seriously in our lives. Will we listen and take action?
When Burdens Are Too Heavy
All of us have or will have some heavy burdens. Living in Christian community means we help others with their burdens and we receive help with ours.
The Glue of Community
Human nature uses people to our own selfish advantages. Jesus flips our natural tendencies upside down and leads by example to show us how community should really function.
Community That Seems Incompatible
We naturally build community based on affinity. When Jesus builds his community, they seemed incompatible. Yet Jesus invited them to journey together.
Unplug To Recharge
Our technology is amazing, but it can be exhausting. If we are going to respond to Jesus’ invitation to rest, it means we will have to turn some other things off.
Rest as Delight
The Sabbath in Jesus’ day had lots of rules. God’s heart for Sabbath wasn’t rule keeping, but restoration. It was a gift pointing to a person: Jesus.
Rest As A Gift
We have an epidemic that comes from a lack of rest. But this isn’t God’s design. God created a divine rhythm that includes the gift of rest. Be sure not to miss it.
The Prayers of the Ordinary
Many of us don’t feel qualified for God hear and answer our prayers. But God uses prayers of ordinary people to change the world.
Celebrating the Prince of Peace
There is a lot to be anxious about. Yet Christmas is a reminder that the Prince of Peace has come.
