If you understand the math behind compounding, you realize the most important question is no, 'How can I earn the highest returns?' It's 'What are the best returns I can sustain for the longest period of time?' Little change compounded for a long time creates extraordinary change. Today's sermon isn't a conversation about compounding interest, it's…

We started this year with what has been basic introductory material on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. As we come to the end of the “introduction” and prepare to move into a deeper conversation on the “fruit of the Spirit," we're going to let this one simple statement guide this message: The Holy Spirit is a divine person who helps us.…

To the early church, the Holy Spirit and God were one and the same. It wasn't hard for them to think of the Father as God or the Son as God, but many view the Holy Spirit as some Jr. deity, some lower-ranking, impersonal force not equal to the Father and Son. One of the reasons people fall into this theological trap is because the Holy Spirit, by n…

We have more books written on prayer, more podcasts, videos and teaching tools on prayer than any generation in the history of the world. If our heart really wanted to engage in a meaningful relationship with God through prayer, we would. It's not a matter of "know-how"--it's a matter of "want-to." The Lord wants us to sense and see what is possibl…

No one in Scripture has been more misunderstood, misaligned, forgotten, or ignored than the Holy Spirit. There are all kinds of theological extremes surrounding the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and it's usually the extremes that get all the attention. Throughout the year, we will address the extremes and wade through the scripture to get a b…

Pastor Bryan discusses ways to prepare our hearts for Northplace's 21-Day fast. In the next 21 days and throughout 2024... our prayer is that the Holy Spirit would move so powerfully that: 1. You become the you, God destined you to be. 2. You are empowered by the Spirit to love people when they least expect it and least deserve it.…

Merry Christmas Northplace Family All month long, we set out to answer the 4 big questions on the timeline of human history: 1. How did it all begin? (Creation) 2. What went wrong? (The Fall) 3. How is God going to make it right? (Redemption) 4. How will it all turn out in the end? (Restoration) Technically, the first in-breaking of God into human …

Each week, we’ve been looking at lesser-known, more obscure Christmas passages that don’t tell us the details of what happened (shepherds, wise men, mangers), but they tell us the meaning of what happened. Today's sermon helps answer this question: How does Christmas connect with God’s plan to make everything right in the world?…

The whole story of the bible can broken into these four chapters: Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration. Last week, we looked at how it all began. This week, we’re going to be looking at what went wrong. Without truly understanding what went wrong with the human race, you’ll never understand why Jesus HAD to become human, and you’ll never see…

As we begin the Advent and Christmas season and end this year-long bible engagement journey, we want to finish it the way we started it: by pointing you back to the bigger story. And as we do, it not only helps you understand the whole bible more clearly, but you’re going to understand and appreciate the meaning of Christmas in a way you never have…

Aristotle, immersed in the pantheon of Greek gods, thought it was totally absurd to think that a human being could be a friend of the gods. Aristotle said friendship was an impossibility because humans and the divine share absolutely nothing in common. Is it absurd to think that man could be a friend of God? Yes. But is it possible? According to sc…

What does it look like to live a spirit-filled life? If we are truly empowered by the Spirit, shouldn’t that be noticeable in our work life, in our relationships, in our witness? If so, how? Far too many of us live lives that are too much like our friends and neighbors who don’t follow Christ. We’re living an everyday life when a supernatural life …

Over the last several weeks, we’ve been looking into various aspects that define the “church”, not just a particular local church but the Lord’s church globally (and eternally). In the Great Commission, you see an underlying principle recurring throughout the bible. Once we realize the depth of God’s grace that has been given to us, gratitude will …

Over the last few weeks, we've been discussing the reawakening of our love for the church. Not the building, not a denomination, not a certain ministry, but the beautiful, complex, diverse, global, and eternal family of God. His Church. This week, Pastor Bryan brings clarity to misconceptions about heaven in order to come to a true, biblical unders…

Will you prepare your heart and your life to be a place where God dwells? There is something unique, powerful...even holy, and supernatural about the collective worship of God’s people when we gather. In week 2 of The Church Defined series, we will discover how worship is defined and lived out in the context of The Church.…

The church has been chosen by God the Father, purchased by Christ the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. The church is a sacred family that should be cherished and recognized as “dear” by all who call her home. But referring to something as “dear” is not all that common in our culture...especially, when thinking about the church. The goal of th…

Last week, we focused on the previous part of chapter 12 and saw the practical advice the writer of Hebrews gives on “how to get” or “how to build” an unshakable life. But today, we want to back up and look at the earlier parts of this passage where the author compares and contrasts the shakable life from the unshakable.…

Adversity reveals who you really are. When the earth gives way underneath you or when the storm rages around you. When the shaking starts, it’s going to expose you for who you really are. So here's the question: What will wash up on the shore of other people’s lives after the biggest storm of your life? There will be things shaken loose that scatte…

When we read this description of Jesus' lineage, and see it the way God intends us to, it becomes a literal summation of the story of grace that has unfolded throughout the Old Testament. It’s like Matthew is kicking off the New Testament with this genealogy saying to us: Here is a summation of the story so far. The Gospel isn’t a story about how t…

If there is one thing God cannot do, is change. Changing his character, His ways, His nature, is not even a possibility. God’s promise to us is that He will never do that. And the promise of God’s immutability, His unchanging nature, is where we can anchor our lives in an ever-changing world of chaos, uncertainty, and ambiguity.…

There are going to be moments in your life when the lights go out. Where you’re having to follow God in the dark. When the promises of God you read in his word (or that He’s whispered into your heart) that at one time were so clear and certain. There will come a time when they will seem like an allusion. It will all seem like an impossibility. We s…

Abraham is considered “Father Abraham”...the “Father of Our Faith” because of the radicle obedience referenced here in Hebrews 11:8. Every follower of Jesus can trace their spiritual ancestry back to this single step of faith. We’re sitting here today as followers of Jesus because Abraham made that courageous decision to honor God with irrational o…

If, like many American Christians, you see God as a divine bellhop that can be ordered around at your whim, or a genie that’s simply supposed to grant your wishes or some type of Santa Claus that’s just there to fulfill your requests, you’re going to have a hard time processing the God revealed in the scriptures today. But, if you can learn to trus…

Our culture is absolutely obsessed with appearance. There are even companies you can hire to help you manage your image. But God is not impressed by our image management. He couldn’t care less. He doesn’t judge a person by appearance, achievements, accomplishments, acquisitions, education, or wealth. He’s more concerned about the authentic internal…

Far too many people come to church on the weekends, raise their hands in worship, give, pray, even get emotional when they sense the presence of God, and yet walk out of here and be someone totally different at work, or at home, or with the girls on that night out, or with boys out on the town because they’ve compartmentalized their life to rationa…

He is the God who sees our tears, but do we see His tears for us? This week we are looking at one of God’s most forgotten aspects found in the book of Ezekiel … God as a lover. God comes and says I want to be the husband and lover of the church. God is a Smitten Lover, a Wounded Lover, and a Faithful Lover. This is why we need to understand that ou…

The writer of Hebrews makes a unique statement about the shed blood of Christ. He says the blood of Christ “speaks” better things than the blood of Abel. The blood of Jesus has a voice and it speaks mercy, grace, pardon, and forgiveness over our lives. In the same way, your tears have a voice. Your tears speak. They are a language all their own. An…

For so many people in the world and unfortunately for so many followers of Jesus, the phrases "I still haven’t found what I’m looking for," or "I still haven’t seen or experienced what I thought I should by now," or "I’ve looked everywhere and there still seems to be something missing in my work, in my family in my relationships in my emotional and…

Words create worlds. Your words create the culture in your home. Your words create the perception people have of you. Your words either strengthen or destroy your relationships. So yes...your words create the world you live in. If you want to change your life, you have to change your words.By Northplace Church

Proverbs has a lot to say about our speech patterns. And if you survey the entire book and examine everything it has to say about our words, it can be boiled down to this thesis or premise: If you want your words to reflect God’s heart, you need to know the “why”, “what” and “how” of words: 1. Why Words Have Power 2. What Differentiates Life-giving…

In week one, we saw how our relationships impact our destiny. In week two, we learned how to biblically respond to criticism and critical people. In week 3, we learned the importance of staying excited and hopeful about our future. Here’s the focus for week 4: Your attitude more than your aptitude will determine your altitude.…

In week one, we saw how the bible teaches us that our relationships determine our destinies. (For the good or the bad). The company you keep is the best indicator of your future. Last week, we learned from the lives of Moses, Hezekiah, Nehemiah, and ultimately from Jesus...on how to respond to criticism (and critical people) in an emotionally and s…
