Simply Christmas: One Gift Fits All?
Christmas is a time when families gather, for better or worse. Tense relationships are revealed. Sins come front and center. Which is what makes Luke 2 so incredible. The shepherds are God’s first audience for Christmas. Angels bring good news of great joy to take away their fear and welcome them (and us) to the family of God.
Simply Christmas: A Virgin REALLY Gave Birth
Many people view Christmas as a season of wishes, dreams, and heartwarming tales. But the book of Luke in the Bible gives us the real people, real places, and real hope that we find in a real, historical Jesus. This message reminds us that Jesus’ birth actually happened, which is heartwarming news!
Sexpectations: Sex Is Unnecessary
Jesus proves that sex is not required for a satisfying life, which is thrilling news for singles, divorcés, widows, and couples struggling with their sex lives. Having a joyful connection to God makes sex a good, but unnecessary, gift from God.
Sexpectations: Sex Is Fiery
Like fire, sex must be treated with a healthy fear. Mess around with one flame and you might get hurt. Mess around with one night and you might get hurt worse. This message explores the Bible’s warnings about sex, showing Gods’ fatherly heart when he restricts sexual pleasure to the commitment of marriage.
Sexpectations: Sex Is Work
Too many people expect sex to be easy, just like it is in the movies. But that expectation leads to pressure, frustration, and disillusionment with others. God, on the other hand, expects sex to be the result of a process of love and respect.
Sexpectations: Sex Is Good
Sex was invented by God himself! In the beginning, when everything was very good, there was sex. God’s idea. God’s gift to husband and wife. In a world where too many of us have been victims of sexual sin or of an anti-sex church culture, we need the reminder that sex, by God’s design, is still very good.
Death to Selfie: THE Reason to Be Unreasonable
Follow Jesus and the world might not approve. “You’re wasting time. Wasting money. Wasting energy. Wasting your life.” But Jesus defends those who love him. His approval is what matters the most, since it lasts forever.
Death to Selfie: Get Comfortable With Discomfort
Jesus’ “pep talk” about the end of the age was less than comforting. Wars. Earthquakes. Flogging. Arrest. Hatred. Are we willing to walk with Jesus during the end times? Be hated? Die for him? If you know his promise of salvation and election, the answer is easy—Yes!
Death to Selfie: Serve Like a Ninja
The rich gave massive offerings on a particular day in the temple. But Jesus noticed and praised the poorest widow who quietly gave the “smallest offering.” In our day of public recognition, what would Jesus say? He would ignore those who praise themselves and praise those who serve God in secret.
Roots and Fruit: Go and Tell
Sharing the good news about Jesus is an obvious way to produce joy in other people’s hearts. But it’s a key to producing joy in our own hearts as well. Being active in sharing your faith helps you grasp all the good things you have through Jesus.
Roots and Fruit: Give Generously
The apostle Paul was unashamed to say that being financially generous is a key to joy, blessing, and so much more. In the same way, many Christians have learned that it is more blessed to give than to receive!
Roots and Fruit: Grow Closer to Jesus
How does a person have any peace in a world where everything seems so uncertain? Grow! Although the Bible is a hard book to read, it produces knowledge to keep you secure in your faith until Jesus returns.
