Description: Where are you in life? Is everything going according to plan? Or have you experienced some whiplash moments that changed everything?
And hey - never mind your whole life, what about this year, this month, this week, today? Have you already experienced some surprises that came straight out of left field?
If so, you can identify with Mary and John. As they stood at the foot of the cross, overcome with grief, Jesus gave his mom to John...and John to his mom. Not only did they leave that day in mourning because of the death of Jesus, but they walked home to an entirely different living arrangement!
In this, our third message on the 7 Sayings of Jesus on the cross, we go to God's Word to discover what we can learn to prepare us for life's blockbuster surprises!
Description: In this message we continue our Lenten series: "The 7 Sayings of Jesus on the Cross" -
"…today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)
Can you imagine how hearing that made this man feel? He was being executed as a condemned criminal! We'll explore why Jesus would make such a stunning, undeserved promise to this man who had cursed him only hours before.
But there's more to those amazing words Jesus spoke on the cross. There's power in TODAY!
As we go to God's Word, ask Him to unleash that power in your life.
Description: Though He was in excruciating agony, Jesus cried out from the cross -
"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing!"
They didn't have a clue.
But they're not the only ones, are they? To what extent do Jesus' words apply to those around us...to our society at large...to you and me? And what does He want us to do about it?
This fascinating, life-changing Lenten study of the 7 sayings of Jesus on the cross begins today.
Description: You've seen trans men and women on the news, on social media, appearing in some of your favorite TV shows.
Perhaps it's closer than that - when a friend, coworker or family member prefers a gender different from the one they were assigned at birth.
Our society's laws, language and customs are changing to accommodate this growing social phenomenon that is part of the expanding LGBT movement.
What does the Bible say? How can we honor God with our response?
Description: Sometimes this is how you and I feel, isn't it? Going nowhere fast…sometimes detouring into sin...appearing aimless.
Life can become so DAILY! Whatever progress you and I make feels glacially slow.
But in this message, I have some awesome news from God's Word for those of us traveling at snail-speed. I can't wait to share it with you!
Description: "WHICH GENERATION IS BEST?"
Do you have an opinion? Is it your generation? Someone else's?
We're going to God's Word to answer that question in this audio message! The answer may surprise you...but it will also challenge and inspire you.
There are 6 generations on planet earth today. We intend to examine each of them. You'll see yourself in one of them, for sure!
Description: At first glance, this seems an absurd message subject. EVERYBODY knows how to be themselves, don't they?
Well, no. To a greater or lesser degree, you may unknowingly be attempting to live up to the expectations of your parents, spouse, friends, children, boss, customers, society. The problem with that is that the expectations of others don't agree...and somewhere along the line you're left confused, conflicted, unsure of who you really are.
If you're going to have the kind of 2020 you long for, you've got to get that fixed! In this message, we go to God's Word to help us do just that.
Description: It's SO HARD to wait!
What's more, there are times when you should...other times when you absolutely should not.
But how can you tell when waiting is a virtue...and when it's merely procrastination?
Well...wait for it...you go to God's Word!
And that's exactly what we do in this message, which contains more than a few surprises.
Description: What would it be like to be a king? Most of us will never know.
Or will we?
Actually, if you're a follower of Jesus, you WILL be a king...for a day.
Next question: How long does that day last? Hint: Longer than 24 hours!
Description: There is one Name that is above every other name on earth or the cosmos.
In this 1on1 Church message, we explore, celebrate, wonder in awe and worship the One who bears that Name.
If that is your desire, this day is for you...1on1 with Him.
Description: How do you love a God you can't see?
Perhaps that's why down through the ages there has been so much idol worship. Desperate to see their god...people have made one up.
Aren't you glad nobody worships idols anymore...or do they?
Is it possible that Satan is attempting to push off one or more modern-day idols on you? How can you successfully push back...and truly worship the only true God, invisible though He may be?
Description: Have you ever wondered what you'll look like in heaven? Will your imperfections disappear? If so, will you be recognizable? LOL
But seriously, if we're all a perfect version of ourselves in heaven, what will that look like? What age will you be? And what about the people you've never met? How will you recognize them?
We'll examine the rock-solid descriptions based on Scripture. Then we'll take a look at some of the theories out there, loosely based on Scripture. I may even share with you mine. ;-)
So what's the point of all this? Would it surprise you to learn Jesus wants you to be eager to see what you'll look like? After all...that's just one of the things you have to look forward to, that helps keep you focused on what truly matters.
If you're not already eager to experience your new body in heaven, after hearing this 1on1 audio message, you will be!
Description: At the end of this earth as we know it…
“This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more SHAKE the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will SHAKE all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty.” (Haggai 2:6-7)
But does that mean we'll be SHAKELESS until then?
The word, "SHAKE" appears in the Bible 72 times - and most of the time it isn't referring to what God has planned for the Great Tribulation.
So will YOU be shaken? If so, how? If not, why not?
You're going to be encouraged by this message from God's Word!
