The work of Christ on the cross and His forgiveness produces a thankful heart. It also produces a generosity that is “pressed down and running over.” Darrell reminds us in this message that the person characterized by generosity and thankfulness will find his life enriched and overflowing with blessing.
Darrell exhorts us to live a generous life free of judgement and one that builds community. It is in journeying together, that we access the freedom of the cross and freedom from fear. Life together in Jesus transforms.
Darrell’s message describes the generous fruit that comes from a truly Christ-centered community. Out of their common life together, the transforming life of Jesus was seen and multiplied fruit built the Kingdom of God.
Daniel begins this message with a reference to a book entitled, Epoch, by John Eldredge. Here he underscores a theme from the Lord of the Rings where the hobbit, Sam, reflects on the great difficulties of his journey. As he does Sam asks the question, “I wonder what sort of tale we’ve fallen into?” For each of us this same question sometimes leads us to something of an identity crisis. As we reflect on the story of our lives, we might find ourselves struggling to find out who we are. In this message, Daniel takes a look at the “tale we’ve fallen into” and the life-changing, Biblical account of who we are in it.
Romans 8:38-39 tells us that nothing can separate us from the love of God. In this message, Daniel demonstrates how this unconditional love stands in stark contrast to the narrative we see played out in the world around us. The power of this kind of love sets people free and transforms lives.
When our life plan seem derailed, understand that God really is at work. Casey shares a message of hope that would encourage us in the heart breaking moments of life to have confidence that God will realize His good plan in each one of us. No matter how dark the season, “Joy comes in the morning!"
Darrell shares a message on the freedom that comes from GENEROSITY. That freedom is a journey that requires a stubborn resistance to those things that would draw us back into bondage. Are you driven by obligation or passion? Jesus says in Matthew 6 that we should not worry about our needs. Instead, He challenges us to seek God first while trusting Him to provide. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Baptism is an outward sign and picture of something that has already taken place in the life of each believer. It is a step taken once the foundation of faith in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is established. Listen in as Darrell shares how the Baptismal waters demonstrate our death, burial and resurrection with Jesus.
Fearfully and wonderfully made, God has prepared a path of good works for each of us. Darrell exhorts us to consider if we are willing to lay down our lives and live in His.
Narratives evolve from the many voices in our lives. It is these voices that shape our beliefs and our direction. In this message Darrell encourages us to resist the world’s narrative and to give ourselves to the narrative of Jesus. One that calls us to love and forgive and be set free.
Darrell poses the question, “Who do you follow?” In this message, he challenges us once again to consider that the power for change comes through the Holy Spirit. The invitation is to surrender to Jesus and His kingdom principles and so release the power of His Spirit in us, a new humanity!
Charish highlights the simplicity of Jesus’s transforming power as we surrender to Him and let Him do His work in us. In sharing a part of her own journey, she demonstrated how the richness of the scripture can inspire us to lean into the work of the Holy Spirit and make us living temples of a merciful, loving God.
Jake shares an intriguing message that demonstrates how the ways of Jesus often come into conflict with the tribal tendencies that dominate the thinking of mankind. Starting with the story of Jonah, we see how truly difficult it was then and is now to love our enemies.
In this message, Lazarus shares many scriptural exhortations to reject fear. At the same time, in the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus is troubled by fear. We see that we are not alone when it comes to fear. It is a common human experience that even Jesus experienced. The issue is how long do we stay in that fear and how do we respond to it?
Casey led a Father’s Day discussion with three fathers, Jake Ulasich, Daniel Moore and John Moore. Each one gave their perspective on fathering children at different stages of life. Listen as they share in a transparent way, the highs, the lows and the do-overs.
