Following Jesus Into Transformation

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 Play this file. Play View Comments Comments (0)
As we walk with Jesus, it is His plan and purpose that we be transformed. And truly, if we are walking with Him, that will be a natural part of following Him. This week, we look at how that process works according to 1 Corinthians 5:16-21.

Counting the Cost

Although Jesus paid the price for our salvation and salvation and eternal life are free, there is still a cost to following Jesus. Being a follower of Jesus means that there are commitments we are called to, choices that we are required to make as part of our journey. John 15 shows us some aspects of this.

Following Jesus to Emotional Health

Week 4 of Walking With Jesus - This Week, we look one particular aspect of Jesus' humanity - His emotions. In the gospels, Jesus expressed a wide range of emotions, including joy, anger, compassion, and grief. This message helps us see how Jesus gave free expression to His emotions while never sinning - and how we can live as emotionally healthy followers of Jesus.

Following Jesus to Hurting People

As we continue our journey of 40 Days of Walking With Jesus, one of the important facets of Jesus' life was how He interacted with people. He treated everyone with love, compassion, and respect - even those who were very different from Him. Today, we look at how we can do the same by observing Jesus' interaction with a well-known character - Zacchaeus.

Following Jesus Wherever He Leads

Jesus showed up in a number of places - many of which were a shock to those religious people who were around Him. Following Jesus means that we've got to be willing to go places that may seem to us to be less than ideal, out of our comfort zone, or even dangerous. Mark 5:1-20 is our text.

God promises to hear and to answer our prayers. Sometimes, though, His answers look very different from what we want or expect. And when that happens, it can be difficult to find joy. In this concluding message of our Advent series, Pastor Don points us to the example of the shepherds, who found themselves confronted by angels in the sky and a Messiah in a manger - completely unexpected events.

We all find times in our lives when we feel like we're all alone - when it can feel like even God isn't close to us. As we continue our series on Finding Joy at Christmas, we look at John the Baptist as a baby, and we discover that even when we feel like we're all alone, we can find joy.

This message is the conclusion of the "Deep Valleys, Dark Shadows" series. Revelation 21 & 22 describe for us a day that is coming - a day when there will be no more valley experiences, but instead, we will live forever in God's Presence. There will be no more sickness, sadness, tears, or death - and that hope can sustain us through the valleys we endure right now.

One of the most familiar valley images in the Old Testament is Ezekiel's "valley of the dry bones." The outstanding message of the valley of dry bones is that with God, there are no hopeless situations - and, in fact, even when we feel completely helpless, God gives us opportunities to impact the world around us. The history of Israel's rise, fall, and resurrection as a nation demonstrates this clearly for us.

Sometimes God brings us to a place where others around us are in a valley place - and we have an opportunity to enter the valley with them. This can result in great victory - but it takes great courage to "run to the battle." The familiar story of David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17 helps us understand how this can happen.

 When we are going through "valley seasons" in our lives, there may be a lot of things that we cannot control. However, one of the most powerful things that we can control is our attitude. In Psalm 84, we discover just how powerful our attitudes can be, and how to make sure that even in difficult times, our attitude is pleasing to God.

Why Would God Do That

Tuesday, September 01, 2015 Play this file. Play View Comments Comments (0)
Sometimes, we experience things in life that cause us to wonder, "why would God do that?" Sometimes people approach us with that same questions. It can seem like God does things that are contrary to His character, or that don't agree with what we understand to be true of Him. In Acts 5, the story of Ananias and Sapphira is one that seems to contradict the grace and mercy that are such an important part of the new covenant. In this message, we look at what happens when we don't understand God's actions.

Powerless

Tuesday, September 01, 2015 Play this file. Play View Comments Comments (0)
In Acts 4, the apostles began to suffer resistance and even persecution. In a worldly sense, they probably felt powerless - there was little that they could do to change their circumstances. But the truth is that because of God, they were far from powerless - and this story shows us that even when we feel powerless, we actually aren't. We have some pretty important choices and opportunities that are available to us - that no one and no situation can rob us of.

The Perfect Church

As we continue our series in Acts, we look at Acts 2:42-47, which is a summary of the Church in the time period following the Day of Pentecost. This is a description of a Church that was truly on fire for Jesus. It wasn't a perfect church; but it was the kind of church that we can become, if our values and priorities are the same as theirs were.

 After Peter preached his world-changing sermon on the Day of Pentecost, the people who heard it wanted to respond. When they asked Peter what they should do, he told them to repent and to be baptized - two very important responses that are valid but often neglected today when we proclaim the Good News. In this message, Pastor Don outlines why both repentance and baptism are important, and how neither one contradicts the message of salvation by grace alone.

In a sin-infected world life can simply feel unfair. Pastor Jeff connects his personal life with the man born lame from birth in Acts 3.

After spending about 3 years following Jesus, and another 40 days after His resurrection listening to Him teach about the Kingdom, the disciples though they knew what needed to happen next. But they got it wrong. They wanted the Kingdom restores to Israel; Jesus knew that God's plan was different. This message centers on waiting to hear God's plan before we jump ahead with our own ideas.

Part 2 of Pastor Don's sermon series on Acts. This week, we look at Acts 1:6-9, where the disciples want Jesus to restore the kingdom to Israel - a plea for national revival. But Jesus had bigger plans - Kingdom plans for the world. There are some important lessons in this for us today as we consider the impact of the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage. What should our response be as followers of Jesus? How does this affect us as a church, as a part of the C&MA, and as individual followers of Jesus? What does the Bible teach about homosexuality, and how do we balance grace and truth?

 Divorce and remarriage is a difficult subject - one that is emotionally charged, that affects all of us (whether we have personally divorced or not, we all know or are related to people who have gone through divorce), and that brings with it the potential for great wounding, guilt, and shame.
