Pentecost & Persecution

The Holy Spirit empowered the disciples on Pentecost, but they required persecution to move them out of Jerusalem. God uses varied catalysts to send His people out on mission.

The Light of the World

John 8:12-20 โ€“ In a world full of darkness, Jesus claimed to be the light that each of us needs. His illumination provides insight into who He is and clarity about where we should go.

The Next Right Thing

Each of us lives with regrets from previous mistakes, but we can become dangerously apathetic and immobile afterward. Even if you recently messed up and are suffering from its consequences, do what you can while you can.

I’m a disciple of Jesus who attempts to share whatever I’m learning with others as I follow Him.

SERMONS

The Bread of Life

John 6:22-40 โ€“ For people who desired another heavenly handout, Jesus offered Himself as the only thing to sustain us. Only through Christ can you be truly satisfied.

The Resurrection and the Life

John 11:17-44 โ€“ Outside of Lazarusโ€™ tomb, it appeared as if death had claimed another victim. Jesus proved His power over death through resurrection and now invites us to come alive.

The Good Shepherd

John 10:11-18 โ€“ Jesus refused to flee when our endangered souls were in dire need. We marvel at the Good Shepherd who laid His life down for us on the cross to save us from our sinful wanderings.

Experiencing Abundant Peace

Psalm 119:161-176 โ€“ We cannot avoid trouble in this life, but we can experience abundant peace through every trial. Keep a diligent desire to follow Godโ€™s instructions through hard times so you can endure.

Why We Need a Shepherd

When you consider the lack of formidable qualities of sheep, you might feel offended that Scripture regularly compares us to such creatures. But with such a helpless designation, we realize how reliable our Shepherd is.

Resurrection & Commission

Without the empty tomb, the Christian faith is an empty religion devoid of any hope. Jesus rose triumphantly from the grave and commissioned us clearly to the world.ย 

Intentional Staff Meetings

Many employees believe in a cause but get discouraged in the process when working with a directionless leader and misaligned coworkers. With a few adjustments, you can experience significant changes by coordinated efforts.

God Doesn’t Need You

We often think God is desperately recruiting volunteers to get His work done, but that isn’t the case. The fact that God doesn’t need us makes His invitation all the more glorious.

Recovering After Failure

It may not sound encouraging to anticipate failure as we follow Jesus, but none of us will always get it right. We should not wonder if we will fail, but we should consider how Jesus desires us to respond when the unavoidable happens.
