What You Didn’t Know About Love

I’m sure it’s not news to you that Jesus wants us to love one another. It’s the one command upon which all others are built. But just because it’s foundational doesn’t mean we know everything God wants us to know about love. We are going to learn new dimensions of love from a very old…

The Salvation Test

Knowing what it takes to become a Christian is pretty simple, but knowing for sure whether you are one can be tricky to discern. And knowing whether those who influence you spiritually are true Christians can be harder still. Thankfully, the apostle John eliminated a lot of confusion when he wrote the letter we call…

Staying Saved

If the gospel can be symbolized by a seed, and our hearts by soil, there are, in the church, some whose soil is too rocky for the seed to take root. They believe, but briefly. How can you make sure your soil is such that the gospel, once implanted, remains rooted? How can you make…

Do You Love Him?

When what God did for us through His Son Jesus really sinks in, we cannot help but love Him for it. But how do we say to God, “I love You”? With words and worship, yes. But, more powerfully, with actions. It is how we live that best communicates our love (or lack of love)…

Traits Of A True Christian

The language we use to describe salvation is varied-knowing God, being a Christian, having eternal life-but at the core of all that spiritual terminology is the critical question: Are you going to heaven? You may think you know the answer to that question, but how can you be certain? We will be studying 1 John…

No Reason To Hide

Imagine if an archeologist unearthed a letter from Jesus’ best friend, written to people who didn’t know Christ personally about how to get close to Him. How valuable would that letter be to you? How carefully would you want to read it? We have the letter. It’s called 1 John, and it’s in the Bible.…

The Misfit

There are those who are used greatly by God, and then there are those who are, well, like you. Whether it’s because of your wiring, your priorities or your track record, you know that you’re not the kind of person that Jesus would ever call on to do anything significant for Him. Which is why…

The Sinner

Most of us convince ourselves that we are good people right up to the point that we are caught doing something undeniably bad. That’s when everything crumbles, including our confidence that we will be able to stand before Jesus unashamed. But there is a story in the Bible that tells us how He responds when…

The Outcast

You have tried everything you know to quench your soul’s thirst. Education. Recreation. Work. Sex. Wealth. Travel. Adventure. Volunteerism. Maybe even religion. But nothing satisfies, at least not for long. What would Jesus say to someone who still hasn’t found what they’re looking for? What would He say to someone who has found it, but…

The Seeker

Frederich Buechner described Jesus as “that fathomless, elusive, unpredictable, haunting, and finally unknowable figure who moves though the [gospels] like a figure in an old newsreel.” But any time an individual comes face-to-face with Jesus, whether it’s a character in the Bible or a 21st-century person like you or me, that encounter transforms Jesus from…
