August 21st, 2019

As people who have been changed by the Gospel, we are called to give the Gospel away — and the first way we do this is by living the Gospel. By how we live our lives we show the world we’ve come from death to life in Jesus. We have to live the Gospel so we can give the Gospel.

A Simple Plan Pt 2 - A Gospel Letter

August 21st, 2019

The Bible tells us that Jesus has written a letter directly onto our hearts. What does it say? Some may think it's a letter condemning us because of our sin. But it's just the opposite! It's a letter of life-changing good news — the very Gospel itself: Jesus has given us freedom from death, guilt and shame! And this letter is what others should be reading when they read the stories of our lives.

The Devil’s Trap Pt 2 - You’re Not Enough

June 30th, 2019

If the devil can't trap us in shame, convincing us that we're not enough, he'll work to get us pointing angry fingers of shame at others, believing that God's grace is not sufficient for them. Jesus gets to the heart of this issue in a story he told at a dinner party. What he said undoubtedly shocked those who heard him. But will we allow God to use us in shocking ways to extend his grace to the world around us?

June 9th, 2019

To live a faithful and fruitful life in Jesus, we're called to live in purity. That's a huge challenge because of our own sinful nature and the complexities of living in a broken world.

Building My Destiny Pt 5 - Faith

June 5th, 2019

To discover what our faith has to do with our fruitfulness, we look back at the Israelites who were stuck in unbelief and weren't able to enter their destiny.
