Sermons on Discipleship
Call On His Name
During a season of waiting, the first believers receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Out of this moment the nations are invited respond to the message of Jesus and receive the gift as well. Part 2 from Acts 2:1-41
Just The Beginning
The resurrection of Jesus wasn’t the end of the story, but just the beginning. Luke lets us know this movement is getting ready to expand to the ends of the earth. Part 1 from Acts 1:1-11
Seeking Bread. Finding Jesus.
Jesus does a big free food giveaway and the crowd grows. But it won’t be free food that keeps them following. A transformation must take place to keep following him. From John 6.
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.
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.
The God Who Knows Me
Being known is both wonderful and frightening. Will others still love me if they knew what was on the inside? Psalm 139 celebrates a God who knows us and still loves us.
When My Soul Feels Dry
There are times when our soul feels parched. What do you do to find relief and hope again? Psalm 42 offers us guidance.
Choose Your Path Wisely
The path you choose leads you to a destination. Choose wisely. Thoughts from Psalm 1.
Finding Healing For Our Brokenness
Jesus desires his church to be healthy. Sometimes it knows it is sick and needs help. Other times it thinks it is healthy and in reality it is sick. In these letters to the last 4 churches, Jesus has both a diagnosis and prescription. For a deeper discussion on Revelation 3:10, we encourage you to visit our blog and share your perspective.
