Jesus Under Pressure

“True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure. The greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation.” It was Robert McKee who wrote that, and we know it’s true, because we have seen it in our own lives and in the lives of others. Pressure reveals character. In our study of…

Descending Into Greatness

“We are built for significance,” wrote Joe Stowell. “Our problem is not that we search for it, but that we search for it in all the wrong places.” OK, then, what’s the right place? In Mark 10:32-45, Jesus gives us a clear and unforgettable answer to that question. If you want to be a truly…

Young At Heart

We expect kids to learn from their elders, but the most important lesson in life is something they can teach us.

What do kids know that we adults don’t? And why do we have such a hard time learning what comes so naturally to them?

We’ll learn from the way Jesus interacts with both children and adults (in Mark 10:13-31) how to be young at heart when it comes to that which matters most.

Jesus On Divorce & Remarriage

Divorce has wounded more people per square mile than almost any other relational tragedy. No wonder we’re reluctant to subject ourselves to a sermon about it!

But one thing we can count on when Jesus is doing the teaching is that we will both hear truth and feel grace. I hope you will take the risk of joining us as we study Mark 10:1-12, because only good can come from sitting at the feet of Jesus.

Teachable Moments

Imagine looking back on February 4, 2018 as one of the most memorable days of your life–not because that was the day the Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl, but because that was the day God spoke to you so personally and so powerfully that your life was never the same. It is remarkable to…

Power Surge

We live in an age of medical “miracles”. So much of what used to be incurable is now treated with remarkable success. But what should we do when we are told that “there is nothing more we can do”? That may be a hypothetical question for you right now, or it might be an urgent one.

I believe Mark 9:14-29 provides answers that are as relevant today as they were in the ancient world. From this passage we are going to learn how to access the healing power of God when it’s all we have left.

And if you happen to need that power right now, we’ll do everything we can to help you get it.

The Dot & The Line

Is following Jesus all it’s cracked up to be? Honestly, has your Christian life turned out to be what you thought it would be when you opted in? If not–if you have experienced disappointment or disillusionment as a disciple–you have probably heard the tempting whisper, “Why not opt out?” The passage we will study together…

Stranger Than Fiction

How do you turn a man, great as he may be, into a god?

You start with facts, but then you mix in some fiction. A miracle here, a claim to deity there. You Photoshop your hero until he becomes superhuman.

This is what many people believe Christians have done to Jesus. We have mythologized him into a Messiah–the kind of God we want and need.

But do historical documents support that theory, or do they have a compelling ring of truth?

We’re going to examine Mark 7:24 – 8:30 to see if the Jesus of the Bible is a man-made myth or the God-sent Messiah.

Majoring On The Minors

A character in a Jodi Picoult novel said: “You can fool yourself, you know. You’d think it’s impossible, but it turns out it’s the easiest thing of all.” Easy, yes, but harmless? No. We are accountable to a God who sees us as we really are. How merciful of Him to purge us of self-deception…
