The Valley of Opposition calls us to pray bold, faith-soaked, creative prayers that are rooted in a theology of the greatness of God, a record of the goodness of God, and a practice of the presence of God. If we want to see a move of God today, we have to put a magnifying glass on the miracles He did yesterday. If we want to stand on the promises o…
 
God is in the business of healing broken hearts. Heartbreak is incredibly painful, but it has a pruning effect in our lives. It unseats the idols in our lives, and helps us empathize with others. There is no hurt that God cannot heal, in time or eternity. In fact, He can turn the Valley of Heartbreak into the Door of Hope.…
 
The Valley of Dry Bones is the place where God’s resurrection power is revealed. It’s the place where we discover our authority as Christ-followers. There comes a moment when you need to stop talking to God about your problems, and start talking to your problems about God. You have to prophesy to the mountain, prophesy to the storm, prophesy to the…
 
Have you ever gone through a season of life that has broken you? A season that drained your energy, that tested your resolve, that wore you out? Today, we want to talk about a place called “Baka.” It literally means weeping. It was a point on the journey of pilgrimage to Jerusalem in the ancient middle east. We’ll unpack Psalm 84:5-7 to learn how t…
 
If you want to REPEAT HISTORY, keep doing it the way it’s always been done. If you want to CHANGE HISTORY, dare to be different. What you perceive to be your biggest disadvantage may prove to be your greatest advantage. In Christ, you are nobody’s underdog! Your brave is someone else’s breakthrough.By National Community Church
 
The Valley of Crisis is where we discover who we are, and more importantly, who God is. It’s the place where faith is forged, vision is birthed, and character is cultivated. How do you get to the other side? You’ve got to PRAY YOUR WAY THROUGH and WORSHIP YOUR WAY OUT of the crisis.By National Community Church
 
Like the disciples two thousand years ago, we find ourselves sheltered-in-place this Easter. Fear is in the air. Uncertainty is everywhere. The good news? The tomb is still empty! When Jesus walked out of the tomb, death was no longer undefeated. When it seems like all is lost, we go back to the empty tomb. That is where our faith is found. That is…
 
We find ourselves in a season of isolation, chaos, frustration, grief, readjustment. We are adjusting to a completely new normal all the while facing weeks and months of new pressures and challenges. In our text today, Jesus found himself facing pressure, pain, and challenge in the moments before He would face the cross. As He entered the garden, H…
 
The table is one of the most ubiquitous yet overlooked settings in the Scripture. Throughout the Old Testament, the table is where people encountered the power, provision, promise, and presence of God. In the New Testament, the table is where the powerful were confronted, the oppressed were uplifted, the outcasts were invited, the self-righteous we…
 
In a season of social isolation and anxiety, this weekend we’re taking a team approach to our message. You’ll see a show of unity in isolation with all seven of our Campus Pastors taking a part in the sermon via ted talk. On a daily basis we find ourselves inundated with new data and further pushed into isolation from one another. Questions are con…
 
Success and outcomes seem to constantly dominate our focus. All of our decisions seem to hinge on them. Jesus was also concerned about success and outcomes for his disciples. But in John 15, he uses the metaphor of the vine to explain to them that their success (or rather fulfillment of their purpose as his disciples) hinged upon one particular inp…
 
As we explore The Jesus Way, today’s passage leads us to Jesus turning the social structure of the day upside down in the way he leads. Jesus lays down his position and instead picks up a towel. It wasn’t a singular commendation of service or an isolated call to humility…it was the combination of both. We’ll spend our time today unpacking this beau…
 
Seeking God with greater consistency, greater intentionality, and greater priority is the solution to a thousand problems. You don’t FIND time. You have to MAKE time. How? You’ve got to pitch a tent like Moses. You need a TIME and a PLACE where you get off the grid and get with God. The only ceiling on your intimacy with God and impact on the world…
 
Jesus teaches us to love our enemies. It’s counter-cultural but is entirely freeing. Henri Nouwen states, “Loving our enemies is the way of becoming free of our enemies.” To close this series, we are praying for new eyes - to see people the way God sees them and to be more for them than we are against them.…
 
When we hear “turn the other cheek” or “go the second mile”, what we usually translate that to is “just let them win” or “roll over and play dead”. But what Jesus of Nazareth is telling us in this passage is actually quite provocative. He’s not actually telling us to fight back with violence or take a passive stance. Rather, Jesus is offering us a …
 
Deep down we all want to be able to trust each other's character and not be tricked, fooled, or played. But it is hard to trust because regularly people do not keep it real. This was an issue with the Pharisees that Jesus addresses in Matthew 5 (as part of the Sermon on the Mount). They had the tendency to make vows with loopholes so they could not…
 
The teachings of Jesus are disorienting. They are disorienting because some of them are difficult to understand and all of them are difficult to apply. Jesus points us to a Creator who designed sexuality to reflect the eternal joys and mysteries of heaven, and he teaches us to walk in relationships with one another in a way that reflects his perfec…
 
In Matthew 5:21-24, Jesus unpacks the true meaning behind the sixth commandment. The pharisees focused on the act of murder, but Jesus said, the anger in our hearts has the same judgment before God. Have you ever taken time to look under the hood of the anger in your life? Anger is a secondary emotion. When we dig beneath the surface, we find anger…
 
Half of spiritual growth is learning. The other half is unlearning. Jesus didn’t do an orientation with his disciples. He did a disorientation. Six times in the Sermon on the Mount He says, “You have heard that it was said, but I tell you.” Jesus was uninstalling Old Testament paradigms and reinstalling New Covenant principles.…
 
We often have plans, goals, and things that we are pursuing. That is not a bad thing. But what happens when the plans we’ve made go left or don’t materialize? How do we respond to that? In the life of Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus, we see how to move forward when God has a different plan.By National Community Church
 
During the most wonderful time of the year, as dubbed by the popular Christmas song, many people don’t have the same sentiment. And there are many reasons for that. But the proclamation of Jesus’ birth, was not related to gift giving, holiday cheer, or decorations. It was all about joy found in the ultimate gift of Jesus.…
 
4 simple words exploding with meaning - "peace be with you". Jesus' first words after being raised from the dead are loaded with cultural and historical meaning. There is much more than meets the eye and more relevant to our culture in crisis than ever.By National Community Church
 
Too many believers are following Christ, but at a distance. We’re close enough to see God’s power, but too far to experience his fellowship. In Matthew 5, the scripture inspires us to be peacemakers, but also exhorts us that there will be persecution that comes in following Christ. What we learn though is that challenges actually lead to purpose. T…
 
In a pluralistic culture, we’ve got to get better at agreeing to disagree. This week’s podcast unpacks five practices, five principles. Check Your Ego At The Door Identify Least Common Denominators Let your Conscience be your Guide Don’t be Dogmatic about Disputable Matters Love people when they least expect…
 
Jesus said in what is known as the Beatitudes, "blessed are the peacemakers." In this series, we have been focused on how to be peacemakers. One of the ways we can be effective peacemakers is by addressing our own bias and perspectives. Later on in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus outlines how we are to do this. He says, do not judge. Instead, have a…
 
Our speaker, Latasha Morrison, is a leading advocate for racial reconciliation in our society. Latasha is the Founder and President of Be the Bridge. Be the Bridge is an organization whose mission is to “empower people and cultures towards racial healing, equity, and reconciliation.”By National Community Church
 
Something has gone wrong with the world, God has a plan to set it right, and his people are challenged to play a role in the restoration. Jesus said “blessed are the peacemakers.” Peacemakers go out of the way to make peace, love their enemies to make peace, and leverage their power to serve to make peace. In this series, we will endeavor to be on …
 
The secret to the Double Blessing is this: the way you GET IT is by GIVING IT. God doesn’t bless us to raise our standard of living. God blesses us to raise our standard of giving. Discover five steps to flipping the blessing: Take inventory Find your signature Learn their love language Little things are big things Have fun…
 
The will of God is a lot less circumstantial and a lot more attitudinal than we imagine. The circumstances we are asking God to change may be the circumstances God is using to change us. How do you cultivate the attitude of gratitude? Whatever you don’t turn into PRAISE turns into PRIDE. Your FOCUS determines your reality. Don’t let what’s WRONG WI…
 
Before original sin there was original blessing. If we get that sequence wrong, the entire algorithm is off. Why? Because it changes who we see when we look in the mirror. Because it alters the way we relate to God. Blessing is God’s most ancient instinct. It’s also our deepest longing. The good news? God wants to bless you beyond your ability to a…
 
Bit players- people who played an unsung part in God's redemption story. It only takes one small act to move the Gospel ball down the field. The unsung are often unnamed that play a pivotal role that drastically changes an outcome. This week, we talk about those unsung and unnamed heroes within Scripture through the life of a little boy (John 6:1-1…
 
Leaders aren’t intimidated by other people’s gifts and abilities; they build a platform for them. Barnabas was a minor character in the book of Acts, but his influence extends to us today. He invested in a story larger than his own, gave Paul a place to belong and a place to matter, and gave John Mark a second chance.…
 
There is a long line of women in Scripture who overcome the odds, put prejudice in its place, defy cultural conventions, and break through the glass ceiling. In the grand scheme of history, women are the unsung heroes. It’s the risks they take, the sacrifices they, and sometimes, the rules they break that change the trajectory of history.…
 
What miracle is on the other side of your bold action? What story is God waiting to write beyond your act of obedience? What revelation is ready in anticipation of your word of testimony? Our story today will challenge you in your faith and the way you walk it out. What does radical obedience look like for you? It’s one thing to live your life duti…
 
In a world that is obsessed with looking good, we often put so much effort in trying to stand out. But the Proverbs offer us wisdom on what it means to really have a “good look” life, beyond shallow facades. The pursuit of wisdom will help both our outward expressions and inward governance align, which will allow us to live good and ultimately look…
 
We continue our series in Proverbs, a book of poems and wisdom statements. But one thing we find in the book is that wisdom is more than just a collections of wise sayings, but it acts as a divine being that the scripture calls Lady wisdom. Wisdom is not found in a statement, but in a relationship with a person. We invite you to join us as we intro…
 
There is a reason that the self-help industry continues to grow each year. It is because we have an interest in growing and getting better. But according to King Solomon, the primary thing we should be trying to gain is understanding. In our attempts to get wisdom and understanding we are really accumulating information. But what God desires for us…
 
We live in a culture that values fifteen minutes of fame more than a lifetime of hard-earned, hard-learned wisdom. The book of Proverbs sets the record straight: get wisdom. How? There are a hundred ways, but we explore three of them in this podcast. One, listen to your life. Two, surround yourself with the right people. Three, ask God for supernat…
 
Many of us have had an experience or a revelation of God, whether through a church, in relationship, or out in nature. But most of us get discouraged when we don’t know where to go after that experience. So we allow it to be an isolated experience instead of seeking further, pressing into prayer, and seeking a fuller vision, revelation, and healing…
 
One of our sacred responsibilities, one of our prophetic privileges is NAMING RIGHTS. When God wants to catalyze change, He starts with names. There is power in naming things. It had the power to alter identities, the power of altering destinies. When God puts His name on us, it’s game on!By National Community Church
 
In his letter to the Christians in the province of Galatia, Paul is encouraging them to not live according to their flesh but by the Spirit. The evidence of the Spirit in our lives looks like the fruit of the Spirit. And we can only see that evidence if we walk with and are led by the Spirit.By National Community Church
