“The Way of the World”
Series: Pentecost
Anytime Jesus sent His disciples out to do the work of the Kingdom, He never pulled any punches. In these verses, Jesus lays it all out for His disciples, explaining what to expect when they encounter the world in His name. Then He goes on to explain in a parable that good and evil exist side by side in this world, that it is not for us divide and deal with the problems, but for God to take care of in the end. In both of these sets of scripture, Jesus simply tells us to do one thing: to be His disciples and live for the Kingdom...God's got the rest.
 
Matthew 10:40-42; 13:24-30

    “A Change of Heart”
    Series: Pentecost
    Everyone knows who the good Samaritan is. In Jesus' day, the Samaritans were hated by the Jewish people, and in this parable, it is the hated outsider that shows the most compassion. Jesus is responding to the question of how to receive eternal life and who, if we are to love our neighbor as our self, then is our neighbor. Jesus puts the compassion of this Samaritan against the religion of a priest and a Levite, two teachers of the Law. May our compassion go beyond religion and prejudice, that our hearts be changed to reflect the love of God.

    “Thank You Crazy Guy”
    Series: Pentecost
    You know that crazy guy...the one with the "John 3:16" sign at football games...for some people that is the only introduction to the Gospel that they get. This conversation that Jesus had with Nicodemus recorded in John's Gospel is typically the set of verses that begin to change people's lives, it certainly changed Nicodemus'. So yeah, thank you crazy guy!

    “Our Hands”
    Series: Pentecost
    What can our hands do? We can create, fix , break and destroy things with them. We can offer people comfort or use them to put people down. But if we learn what Peter knew, through the power of the Holy Spirit, our hands can heal. Our hands cannot just offer people comfort, they can help people up, show them that they are not alone; send a text of encouragement, or even be the instruments of a gracious act. God wants to use your hands for work in the Kingdom...will you let him?

    “Something to Stand On”
    Series: Pentecost
    God never promises that life will be easier if we trust in what He says, but He does promise that He will never leave us. We celebrate these promises in the good times, and lean on them in the bad. This trust is a part of what it means to live in God's Kingdom here on earth.

    “Power and Mystery” – Rev. Allan Brooks
    Series: Pentecost
    The Holy Spirit is our power source, but so often we are confused by it. We plug in a light, we flip a switch, we turn the key in our car. We may not understand how it all works, but we trust them all. Same with the Holy Spirit, the key, the switch, the power is the TRUST!

    “The Hour of Glory”
    Series: Easter
    How do we give God glory? What does it even mean to give God glory? Glorifying God is done when our actions and our being point to Him. As we look through Jesus prayer before the crucifixion, Dr. Dan takes us through what it means to glorify God.

    “3 Simply Difficult Things”
    Series: Easter
    What is it the Lord wants from us? Prayers? Attendance? Large church budgets?
    The Lord wants us to use justice as a verb, doing what is right; to be in love with mercy and kindness; and to walk with Him on a humble path, following God wherever He may lead.

    “The Broken Places”
    Series: Easter
    Sometimes there are disputes in the Church and among believers, but that does not mean the Church needs to become divided. In Acts, when Paul and Barnabas have a disagreement that cause them to go separate ways, the church does not divide and take sides, nor do Paul and Barnabas slander each other's names. Rather, they continue their missionary work to further the Gospel of Christ to the world. Regardless of the broken places, our mission still stands; to further the Gospel of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
