Our tv program airs globally via various outlets, but you can also search topics and watch the program right here. Each episode is a 30-minute study of God’s Word with Pastor Mike Novotny and teach us that thanks to Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, we have full access to God—right now!
Gather, Seek, Serve
There are many temptations that keep us from church, and so many distractions that keep us from worshiping if we get there. This message reminds us why we gather every week in Jesus’ name.
Jesus’ Love, My Life: Let My Love Do the Talking
Why doesn’t God just take his kids out of this broken world? Answer: Because God wants more people to believe and be saved. This is how Jesus closed his epic prayer in John chapter 17, a fact that reminds every Christian of the incredible calling we have to share our Savior with the world.
Jesus’ Love, My Life: Expect Pushback
Jesus never promised a warm and fuzzy Christian life. Rather, he was honest about hatred, persecution, and even death. Yet Christian persecution is proof of our connection to Christ. So don’t go astray! Let the Holy Spirit remind you of Jesus, whose eternal blessings are worth a lifetime of suffering.
God’s Got This!
In challenging and scary times, know that God is here with you, right now, and he has everything under control.
Jesus’ Love, My Life: Love Leads to Action
God wants us all to be “fruitful,” to do good things according to his will. How? By staying connected to Jesus, trusting in God’s “pruning” work, and remembering the love we have received from the Father and the Son.
Jesus’ Love, My Life: Holy Spirit, HELP!
The Holy Spirit often sparks questions and confusion among Christians today. But Jesus’ words, though deep, are clear. The Spirit is our counselor, our teacher, our “reminder,” and our source of peace. This message teaches us to rely on one of Jesus’ greatest gifts, the Holy Spirit.
Jesus’ Love, My Life: I Can Be Fearless
Fear filled the hearts of Jesus’ friends the night before he died. But that made Jesus’ promise all the sweeter. He was going to prepare a place for us. He would be the way to get to the Father. We could trust in him when our hearts are troubled. That’s the peace we need when we realize the sinfulness of our hearts.
Leave No One Behind: Even When Church Hurts
Many kids get disconnected from church because they or their parents get hurt by someone at church. The pastor. The church council. A fellow member. Without the right reaction, these sins/hurts can uproot entire families for generations to come. This message is meant to prepare people for the next time church hurts. What do you do? What do you say? When do you go?
Leave No One Behind: Embrace Your Role
Pastors, teachers, church members, godparents, older siblings, friends, aunts/uncles, grandparents, etc. all have a role in training the next generation. Singles and non-parents have a role too because they are people who, like Paul himself, may not produce the next generation, but absolutely want to see them in heaven with Jesus.
Leave No One Behind: Start Young
This message reminds parents of what matters most—the training up of their children. What you do when they are young will probably shape what they believe when they are older. So, what should you do? God gave Moses the answer. Seek God with a personal passion, based off his unbeatable promises, and then talk about that God as often as you can.
Leave No One Behind: The Next Generation
In Matthew 18 Jesus told a story about a desperate shepherd who was not willing that even a single lamb be lost. Application—While it’s easy to stereotype and look down on other generations (in both directions!), our Father has a massive heart for each generation of people!
A Fresh Start: For Your Emotions
Our thoughts might be true or false, healthy or destructive, demonic or Holy Spiritual, which means we need to think carefully about our thoughts! The apostle Paul made the same point to his friends in Corinth, urging them to take their thoughts captive and make them obedient to Christ. By that same practice, we put our frantic minds at ease and fix our thoughts on Jesus.
