I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to o ...…
 
MESSY-ER Every mess comes with some bad options. David continued to succeed in everything he did, for the Lord was with him. When Saul recognized this, he became even more afraid of him.

Christians believe: the mess that brings us together is the mess that brought God near. Christians believe: the mess is a lens through which we discover God. Obviously, the law applies to those to whom it ...…
 
Why Worry? We worry because we can't control the future. When Ahab got home, he told Jezebel everything Elijah had done, including the way he had killed all the prophets of Baal. So Jezebel sent this message to Elijah: “May the gods strike me and even kill me if by this time tomorrow I have not killed you just as you killed them.” Elijah was af ...…
 
John 11:1-44 1. Do you like to be in control? Why? 2. In what circumstances are you most likely to assume control? 3. Have you ever been disappointed with God? Is it hard to voice that disappointment, especially in church culture? So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. John 11:6 ESV You will ...…

Don't Just Sit There Tension - What's God's role? - What's your role? Tension - Does faith lead to apathy? - Is action a lack of trust? Tension - God is in control, - but you have a role.

What do you want to be known for? What do you do when you don't measure up to you? The moment we start pretending we stop growing. If people don't know what you're really like, they don't really like you. We want to be known for something. We need to be known by someone. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be ...…
 
SO WHAT? There are a lot of things you know to be true that make no difference in your life. What if the ultimate question isn't, "So what if it's true?" What if the ultimate question is, "So what are you going to do?" Knowledge without application has zero value. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] his one and only Son, so that ev ...…
 
JUDGEMENT DAY How do you end up in heaven? What role do your deeds play? For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are m ...…
 
The Highlight of Heaven Will the highlights of heaven be anything like our highlights on earth? So what’s the highlight of heaven?

He will live with them, and they ...…
 
Love You (to the moon & back) What about the people you love? Matthew 22:23-33 “Teacher, Moses said, ‘If a man dies without children, his brother should marry the widow and have a child who will carry on the brother’s name.’ Well, suppose there were seven brothers. The oldest one married and then died without children, so his brother married th ...…
 
EVERYTHING NEW What happens after you die? So what is heaven like? What you can see on earth foreshadows the beauty of what you can’t yet see in heaven.

And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of ...…

ACCEPTED BY GRACE People who were nothing like Jesus, liked Jesus. Jesus liked people who were nothing like him. "Follow Me" The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 NLT Some people brought to him a paralyzed man ...…
 
IN THE BEGINNING, GRACE Why did God create anything? God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to produce offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. Gen. 1:25 NLT Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, ...…
 
THE ENCOURAGEMENT APP There is a ratio in your conversations. The problem with encouragement is that it is't urgent. Three circles of conversation: - Inner - Influence - Life A conversation is an opportunity. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. Proverbs 11:24 NLT The generous will prosper; those who refresh other ...…
 
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud. 1 Cor. 13:4 NLT Or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 1 Cor. 13:5 NLT It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 1 Cor. 13:6 NLT Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always ...…
 
Trying to outsmart God is a sin. We belief the primary purpose of confession is conscience relief Genuine confession serves as the first step towards repentance and reconciliation Genuine confession leads to genuine change Then the Lord said to Moses, “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel: If any of the people—men or women—be ...…
 
THE REST APP Is life robbing you of the joy of life? Push back / Fight back There's no neutrality When Ahab got home, he told Jezebel everything Elijah had done, including the way he had killed all the prophets of Baal.

THE FORGIVENESS APP God stands ready to help you release the grip of the grudge Forgiveness works better than grudge holding Start with the cross What Rome knew is that once you experienced someone dying on a cross, you’ll never ever forget it. What God knew is that once you come face-to-face with the Savior of the world crucified, you will nev ...…
 
Application is Everything Application makes all the difference. The New Testament authors assumed a relationship with God. The New Testament says that insiders are not supposed to judge outsiders. If you are a Jesus follower, you really need to pay attention. If you're not, you get a free pass. It's what you do that matters. Believing without b ...…
 
YOUR CHURCH Our non-negotiable: to draw people to Jesus When they had finished, James stood and said, “Brothers, listen to me.” Acts 15:13 NLT And so my judgment is that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God.

BEGINNING AGAIN We believe Jesus rose from the dead not because the Bible says so. We believe Jesus rose from the dead because of social media. Q: Do you know why Nero could persecute Christians in Rome 30 years after the resurrection? A: There were thousands of Christians who believe Jesus rose from the dead in the city of Rome and this was lo ...…
 
ERASING EASTER Would it make any difference? You erase Easter you erase… If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. 1 Corinthians 15:16-17 NLT The cross was the payment for our sins, but Easter is what completed th ...…
 
4TH QUARTER All of us have a tendency to think God thinks about us the way we think about us. God has a future for me regardless of what I’ve done. When they arrived, Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, “Surely this is the Lord’s anointed!” 1 Sam. 16:6 NLT But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have ...…
 
A WORD FROM THE COACH How do I know that's God? Have I put myself in a position to listen? Three Questions: 1. Is this decision consistent with the Bible? 2. Is this decision consistent with God's thumbprints on me? Rehoboam went to Shechem, where all Israel had gathered to make him king. 1 Kings 12:1 NLT When Jeroboam heard of this, he returne ...…
 
TRADED God often directs through new opportunities that are connected to current opportunities. Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23 NLT Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. Colossians 3:24 ...…
 
THE PLAYBOOK God's thumbprints on you are clues about His plan for you. What did you do with the talents and gifts I gave you?

Throw yourself ...…
 
CALLING AN AUDIBLE The 3 Elements of God's Will: *Providential will of God *Moral will of God *Personal Will of God The more familiar you are with the providential and moral will of God, the easier it will be for you to discern the personal will of God.

IT TAKES 3 The key and goal is to empty the expectation box. What do you do with all this stuff in the desire box? Options for dealing with unsatisfied desires: *Ignore them *Stay bus *Find someone else In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one ...…
 
PUTING YOUR "I" OUT When desires are translated into expectations we create a debt/debtor relationship. What does your spouse owe you? Nothing! How do you keep the expectation box empty? Don't throw Bible darts. The answer to the "I" marriage is that you invite in a third party. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21 ...…
 
KEEPING MY "I" ON YOU We don't want to work on it, we just want it to work. Once the big "I's" collide there are just a few options: *leave *conquer *conform *compromise Marriage moves from covenant mode to contract mode. When desires are translated into expectations we create a debt/debtor relationship. Behind these expectations are legitimate ...…
 
REDEFINING TERMS * Structure - The church is a body, it is not a kingdom. All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it. 1 Corinthians 12:27 NLT Temple model = consume Jesus model = engage * Authority is to be exercised for the benefit of the led, not the leaders. You know that the rulers in this world lord it over thei ...…
 
What Love Requires If you ever felt guiltier about missing church than mistreating someone at work... If you've ever sat around trying to figure out how close you could get to sin without actually sinning... If you believe there's some ritual that makes you right with God and removes your responsibility to make restitution to someone you've har ...…
 
RECYCLED Our consciences determine religious realities whether they reflect reality or not. What is important is faith expressing itself in love. Gal. 5:6 NLT Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So yo ...…
 
APOPLECTIC The Temple Model: *was built around a standard that only the elite could meet *required followers to come there to make peace with God *were nation specific Our consciences determine religious realities whether they reflect reality or not. They attempted to assimilate the Jesus model into the temple model. Judaizers - Jewish Christia ...…
 
We still hold onto things that hold us back. Most of the things you resist about church are the things the church should also resist. The Church = a community of people following the teaching of a man sent from God, to explain God and to clear the path to God. Three Applications: 1. Love God 2. Love one another 3. Love your enemy Who doesn't wa ...…
