Sermons on Discipleship
The path you choose leads you to a destination. Choose wisely. Thoughts from Psalm 1.
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.
The gospel can bring amazing and powerful change…if we persevere to allow God to work through us.
Thomas is widely known as “doubting Thomas.” Yet his doubt was only a brief moment in his extraordinary life. How does Jesus and the other disciples respond to him? We need the same treatment in our doubts as well.
The story of Zacchaeus is taught to kids, but also challenges adults. It’s a reminder of God’s heart for lost people and the obstacles they face in seeing Jesus.
Daily distractions abound. What if those distractions were having an impact on our relationship with Jesus? Martha is a great reminder that you can be busy for Jesus and miss the friendship of Jesus.

Your life has a spiritual tempo and your tempo should match the rhythm of the redeemer. How do we practice moving at Jesus’ pace? Slow down and listen as Chaplain John Richardson brings the message this week.
The church can be equally susceptible to drifting from its God-given purpose. Listen as Pastor Wes speaks about ways we can be more eager to help the poor and avoid cynicism. Let this message encourage you to build relationships and help your default posture be “yes.”
The “I don’t care,” or apathetic outlook, especially the spiritual kind, can kill the soul and destroy the mission of the church. If you find yourself feeling this way, ask God for feeling again, seek out those with a spiritual zeal and/or find one way to strengthen your serve muscle for the glory of God. Ask God to awaken your heart and let go of that numb feeling.
