Help Me Have More: Joy
We all strive for happiness and make decisions on what we think will bring us joy. This feat is even more challenging considering that, according to God, there are three different kinds of joy to be had. But only one of them really works. Pastor Mike takes us through the different joys and shares how to have the greatest, everlasting joy.
Help Me Have More: Kindness
Kindness. Our culture seems infatuated with it as we all preach kindness. Yet it’s often difficult to be kind because kindness comes at a cost to us. What does it take to transform our hearts into making us the kind, loving people God calls us to be? The answer, Pastor Mike says, starts with remembering this.
Skeptical Faith: Are Heaven and Hell Real?
The reality of heaven and hell is one that Jesus himself talked about. By looking at what he says about them in the Bible, we get the incredible perspective on what comes next and how we should feel about our place after we’re done on this earth.
Skeptical Faith: God Loves Science?
How do we reconcile the tension of science and religion? What are we supposed to do when we feel like we need to walk away from Jesus for the sake of hard evidence? Pastor Mike gives us five compelling ideas to remind us that, according to the Bible, we don’t need to choose between head and heart.
Skeptical Faith: Aren’t Christians Hypocrites?
Hypocrites are everywhere, pretending to be one thing when they’re really something else. What do we do when we meet one or—worse yet—when we have BEEN one? In this message, we examine our own identity and see who we are as seen through the eyes of Jesus.
Skeptical Faith: Am I Naturally Good?
Are we really born sinful? That’s a hard pill for many people to swallow. What if we asked Moses, Paul, and Jesus this question? What would they say? Take a closer look at the Bible’s teaching about the human heart, and the answer is clear.
Skeptical Faith: Can I Trust the Bible?
Is the Bible really a HOLY book? What makes it unique from all the other books of other religions? Pastor Mike lays out the reasons why we can lean heavily on the accuracy and truth of this ancient text.
Freedom in Forgiveness: I Can’t Forgive Myself
What do you do when you can’t forgive yourself? Pastor Mike shares three situations when it is especially hard to forgive our own actions—and reveals the two offensive truths about us when we think we can’t forgive ourselves.
Freedom in Forgiveness: I Forgave. Now How Do I Heal?
Does forgiving someone mean you act like their sin against you never happened? And then even if you forgive, how do you heal? The apostle Paul tells you exactly what you need to do.
Freedom in Forgiveness: When Forgiving Feels Impossible
Forgiving someone can be one of the hardest things God calls you to do. But how are you expected to do it when it seems impossible? Pastor Mike shows how our relationship with Christ is key in how we behave toward those who have wronged us.
Freedom in Forgiveness: You Must Forgive EVERY Day
Where do you start the journey of forgiveness? Is forgiveness a “one and done”? Or is it a process we need to deal with daily? What the Bible has to say about forgiveness is not only helpful and powerful; it’s shockingly offensive.
Jesus Judges Churches Too: Do We Compromise Sexual Morality?
Churches today face the temptation of believing they are faithful while subtly compromising their values, especially when it comes to biblical sexual morality. It’s an uncomfortable topic that needs to be addressed, Pastor Mike says, in order to enjoy God’s gift of sex, to understand the consequences of falling to sexual temptations, and to see how God helps us through it all.
