God’s To-Do List for Depression
When we’re depressed, sometimes we naively think that if we just go to church, just sing the right song, or just say the right prayer, our depression will go away. But God’s to-do list for depression isn’t something he’s commanding us to do; it’s something he himself is getting done. Pastor Mike looks to a 3,000-year-old psalm to find how God is helping.
Go and Tell
Jesus told his followers to “Go” and share the good news. But what if you don’t feel qualified? What if you think you have made too many mistakes? Well, if you think you’re really messed up, then you might just be the perfect person to go and tell the world about Jesus.
Evolution of Faith: To Inexpressible Joy
It’s tempting to think that we just need to wait out this broken world until Jesus comes back, to think that joy only begins with heaven. But the apostle Peter tells us that right now, even during our struggles and challenges, an inexpressible joy is possible.
Evolution of Faith: From Fear to Peace
What happens if something gets in between you and the promise of heaven? At first glance, the Bible’s answer may sound contradictory. But as Pastor Mike digs into the apostle Peter’s letter that he wrote to friends who were being persecuted, we see why we can turn our fear into peace.
Evolution of Faith: From Apathy to Praise
Sometimes we feel stuck in our relationship with God. There’s pain, suffering, frustration in our lives. Maybe we’re just lukewarm about our faith. So how do we get closer to God? Pastor Mike says to start with writing a eulogy—about God.
The Power of “And”: Divide and Unite
What do we do with people? In a world where some people pull us away from God and others encourage us toward him, how do we determine which people to allow into our lives? The apostle Paul’s wisdom is as needed as ever, wisdom that forces us to think of the best “And.”
The Power of “And”: Knowing It and Living It
Some Christians talk all about grace and not much about works. Others focus on obedience after breezing past Jesus on the cross. The apostle Paul picks a middle ground and focuses on something else.
The Power of “And”: Grace and More Grace
This world is filled with so many temptations that leave us looking for more self-control. How do we say no to worldly passions that would make us feel so good in the moment? God already gave us the greatest power source to do this. Pastor Mike reveals the number-one way God motivates us to change.
The Power of “And”: My Good and God’s Glory
Doing good things in life is hard, even though the Bible gives us so many reasons to do good. Digging into the book of Titus, Pastor Mike talks about the most important reason to do good, a reason that many of us often forget.
The Power of “And”: Confront and Comfort
We must share that God is here with us right now. And we must know when to say, “Stop it,” when others deviate from God’s Word. Pastor Mike teaches how we can know when people try to add man-made rules to God’s Word and when they subtract truth from it.
The Power of “And”: Spiritual and Religious
Those who lead the church have a high and holy calling. They can bring many people to Jesus or damage those whom God loves dearly. Therefore, the apostle Paul gives Titus–and us–high standards for our message and personal lifestyle.
The Power of “And”: Me and God
Life can change drastically when we listen beyond just one part of the story. Add an “and” and listen to all of it. Pastor Mike digs into the book of Titus to show how this word, “and,” can make a difference by seeing where God is in life.
