Scriptures used: Mark 10:45; Ephesians 4:7; Philippians 2:3; Hebrews 6:10-12; Matthew 6:3; Philippians 2:7; Matthew 5:16; 25:40; 23:11-12

  • Greatness in the Kingdom of God is having a servant's heart. 

  • Serving must be a lifestyle not an isolated event. It's the difference between a lifestyle of honor versus simply completing a task.

  • “There is a difference between choosing to serve and choosing to be a servant. When I choose to serve I retain control about who I serve and when I serve. But when I choose to be a servant I give over my rights and all control about who and when, I just serve.” Richard Foster

  • “Our lives will never be about Jesus if we keep making everything about ourselves.” Bob Goff

  • If we were on trial for having a servant’s heart would there be enough evidence to prove us guilty of blessing others?

  • “Planning to love people is more difficult than just loving people. It’s easier to make plans than to make time.” Bob Goff

  • “I am a pencil in the hand of God writing a love letter to His children.” Mother Teresa

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • When you think of servanthood, what comes to mind? Who comes to mind? 

  • How do you think you are when it comes to serving? 

  • What ways can you get better at serving?

Scriptures used: Romans 8:14-17; John 12:49; Matthew 19:16-26; Acts 7:55-60, 8:1-3; Romans 8:35-39; 2 Timothy 4:7

  • Humans have an innate desire to reach out for a parent. We are looking for someone who loves us, can take care of us, and can comfort us. Our spirit yearns for a father. 

  • The greatest challenge/impossibility we have ever faced in mankind is that we were hopelessly separated from God. 

  • Anything we believe brings us satisfaction, security and meaning outside of Christ can cause us to miss the true fulfillment of following Him. 

  • It brought Jesus joy to tear down the impossible hopeless separation that stood between man and God and offer man the hope of salvation. 

  • By the blood of Jesus we are released from the penalty of sin and we are released from the power of sin by the power of His Spirit. 

  • Jesus was forsaken so we could be forgiven. He was pushed away so that we could draw close. 

  • The greatest impossibility we ever faced, the hopeless separation from God, has been done away with because of Jesus Christ and now NOTHING separates us from the love of God!

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • When you think of God as a father, what images come to your mind? 

  • What things did your dad tell you growing up that have stuck with you and helped you? 

  • How have God's promises helped you through difficult times? How can you rely on them even more?

What if God could send you a message to assure you that he’s got everything in your under control? He has! God has sent you messages of hope in his Word to help you combat even the biggest of life’s challenges. As we read, declare, and pray these promises, we understand more deeply that he loves us, he is with us, and he will never leave us.

  • The message we read from Peter in Act 2, that he spoke to a crowd of people is the same message we should still speak today. The gospel changes lives.

  • Are we living out our faith in our own might and strength or are we living in the power of the Holy Spirit? 

  • Life with the Holy Spirit is a limitless life. It's an adventure. 

  • We shouldn't be trying to lead the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spiit should be leading us. 

  • The Holy Spirit will always point people to the saving grace and love of Jesus.

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • How have I limited God and his Holy Spirit?

  • How have I misused the purpose of the Holy Spirit? 

  • What does it mean to be filled with the Spirit?

Here's the church.png

Scriptures used: Colossians 2:6-8; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Matthew 7:17-20; Galatians 5:19-23; Ephesians 2:19-20; Colossians 1:5-6

  • Living a mature Christian walk will never happen accidentally. For us to grow in Christ we must be intentional about what we do.

  • Studying scripture helps us grow in our faith. Scripture is not just words on a page, it's food for the soul. 

  • We grow in Christ through our worship, our service, our giving, our times in community with others and when we share our faith. All of these things take focus off ourselves and put them where Jesus called us to - God and others. 

  • We are called to be rooted in Christ and rooting takes time, nourishment, and fertilizer. 

  • As we grow in Christ and make Him our foundation, He builds us up and strengthens our faith. 

  • What if we were intentional about our faith and were purposeful about our call in Christ? 

  • Don't let your visions of the past overplay the visions of the future Christ has for you.

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • How have I seen growth in my faith journey? 

  • Where can I challenge myself to see more growth? (Bible study, worship, serving, giving, community, sharing my faith)

  • Am I growing in thankfulness? What can I do to produce more gratitude?

Scriptures used: Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 4:1, 11-16; Hebrews 10:25; Ephesians 1:22-23; John 13:34-35; 1 John 3:18; 4:11

  • Christianity is something to be “lived” out. When we live out our faith we are playing a part in the calling of the church. 

  • Jesus is not casual about His church. He died for the church and He rose again so the church could have resurrection life. The church is His bride. 

  • Church is not just about going to a place, that’s religion. Church is about giving our lives in love.

  • Jesus' church is at it's best when it loves radically. 

  • The church should be striving to reflect Jesus.

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • What does it mean to you to be a part of God's church? 

  • What does it mean to love like Christ loved us? 

  • How difficult is it to love like Christ? What can we do to grow in our ability to love like Christ?

Confusion about who owns the church and who should be in charge is crippling some congregations in America. The key to a healthy local church is to recognize Christ as the Owner and Head of the Church. This series is based on the book The Church That Works, by Rick Dubose and Mel Surface. It was mainly written for pastors and leaders, to motivate them to be such a church.

  • From where do we allow thoughts to fill our mind? News media? Tradition? Self? God’s thoughts and truths can be found for us in Scripture. 

  • The Bible is how an infinite God who is above our understanding accommodates Himself to us.

  • Our desire is not to revise the truth of God's word but to live the truth so that we can live in God’s love, freedom, and power.

  • The Bible is the story of a promise God made to a nation, that became a salvation and hope God gave to humanity in the person and deity of Jesus Christ.

  • The Word of God reveals the love of God and the truth of God because it reveals Jesus.

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • What has been your viewpoint of Scripture? 

  • How open are you when you read God's word? 

  • How has scripture challenged you and changed you?

juxtaposed.png

Scriptures used: Ecclesiastes 4:4; Psalm 34:5; Matthew 27:18; James 3:16-18; James 2:8; Romans 12:15

  • If you compare and compete, you'll live in defeat. 

  • Too often we determine where we are based on where everyone else is, but if we always compare ourselves to others, we will never be good enough.

  • It can be so much easier to listen to the voice that tells us we are not good enough, but when we doubt ourselves, we are doubting our creator. So take those thoughts that tell you you aren’t good enough and hold them captive.

  • If we look to others, we will feel insufficient and that can make us feel ashamed, but when we look to Christ, we are reminded that He is sufficient, so we don’t have to be.

  • When we understand how much God loves us and how much He values us, then how we compare to others doesn’t really matter.

  • Our responsibility is to use what God has given us for His glory. What are you doing with what God has given you? 

  • We’re actually to consider ourselves less than others, instead of trying to live up to or out do what we see in others. 

  • If we begin to celebrate instead of compare we’ll find peace instead of envy.

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • In what ways do you struggle with comparison? 

  • Have you fully realized your value to Christ? 

  • In what ways has God gifted you, or entrusted you with influence? What are you doing with that opportunity? 

  • How can you better celebrate others successes?

  • Every action begins with a thought. We have to protect our mind to avoid deception and destruction. 

  • We will face lies about God and lies about ourselves. These lies try to manipulate us, but truth is found in Christ. 

  • We need more than a "right mind." We need a new mind, a righteous mind, in Christ Jesus. 

  • We don't need a conformed mind, we need a transformed mind. That only comes in Christ. 

  • When our thoughts seem hopeless, salvation always reminds us that there is hope, and that hope guards our mind in Jesus.

Reflect or meet with someone to discuss:

  • In what ways do you struggle with your thoughts? 

  • Are the thoughts you struggle with more lies about God or lies about yourself? 

  • How are those thoughts different than the truth we find in Christ?

It Began With a Sacrifice

began with sacrifice.png

  • Something that is precious to you is valuable to you. God valued His Son Jesus and He valued you enough for Jesus to give His life for you.

  • At the cross, when Jesus shed His blood, He was saying to you - I am forgiving you, pardoning you, canceling out your sin, if you will believe in and follow me.

  • When Jesus was on the cross He wasn't guilty of anything, He was dying for the guilty.

  • You can't offer God enough goodness or good works to cover your sin. The only thing that can cover our sin is the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross. Our response to that is what matters.

  • We don't have to live in shame over our sin and our mistakes. The blood of Jesus not only covered our sin, it covers our shame as well.

Reflect:

  • Do you try to make things right with God through good deeds? How so?

  • How does shame get to you?

  • What keeps you from completely accepting what Christ has done for you and what steps can you take to allow Christ to take your shame?

  • Jesus transformed a cross into a place of salvation. He transformed a tomb into a place of hope and a place of life. He can transform your life.

  • No matter where you come from, no matter what you are facing, if you are in Jesus there is always Hope.

  • Jesus can meet us in our darkest place and shine His light in our darkness. 

  • Jesus will replace your fear with faith and you can have peace in Him. 

  • Jesus is not afraid of your doubt. If you seek Him you will find Him. 

  • Jesus promises life and life more abundant. He promises to give our life purpose. Jesus can bring resurrection life into your grief, your fear, and your doubt. You can find hope in Him.

Reflect:

  • Are there thoughts of hopelessness that you struggle with? Express those thoughts to Jesus. 

  • What fears do you face and need Jesus to give you faith to confront them? 

  • What kind of doubts do you wrestle with? 

  • Begin to pray that God will help you in these areas of grief, fear and doubt.

  • Trust in God is not about trusting that everything will happen like we want. Faith is trusting in God no matter our circumstances.

  • We can trust that God is in control when we are not. 

  • No matter what happens around you, you can't forget this truth - Jesus loves you. 

  • We should trust the one who knows the entire story from beginning to end.

Reflect:

  • Do you consider yourself a trusting person or is it hard for you to trust? Why do you answer the way you do? 

  • Is it easy or hard for you to trust God? 

  • Do you have a hard time believing that Jesus loves you? 

  • Who can you talk to and what can you do to help build trust in God?

Scriptures used: Matthew 543-48; Romans 6:23; Luke 14:12-14; Romans 2:11; James 2:9; Matthew 5:1-5, 15-20

  • Contentment is not found in our situations being perfect. Contentment is found in Jesus Christ. 

  • Jesus is not just one in a line of great teachers and philosophers. In Jesus is salvation, hope, and eternal life for all who believe. 

  • Jesus was willing to pursue the outcast, the unwanted and the weak. He came for all and longs for all to experience His love and be restored to dignity. 

  • In Jesus we are called and challenged to love others and put others ahead of ourself. 

  • When Jesus has done something in your life you never know the impact your story can make on someone else.

Reflect:

  • Do you ever find yourself living as if others are beneath you? What could you do to change that mindset? 

  • Who is someone you struggle to love? What can you do to learn to let the love of Christ express itself in that relationship?

  • We will live in a place of un-fulfillment if we make anything other than Jesus the center of our life. 

  • Jesus came and gave His life so that you would be offered an invitation to find life through Him. 

  • The fulfillment you're looking for is found in Jesus. 

  • Jesus' kingdom is upside down to this world - enemies are loved, persecutors are prayed for, others are put over self, giving is greater than receiving. 

  • Jesus wants to transform our life. Our first step is to follow Him.

Reflect:

  • When do you find yourself most disappointed? 

  • In what things are you trying to find fulfillment? Is Jesus truly center of your life or does someone or something else creep into that spot? 

  • Is there something you need Jesus to change and are you willing for things to be turned upside down if they need to be?

  • Jesus chose you and died for you to choose Him. 

  • We are born in sin but we can be born again to a new life in Christ. 

  • In Christ you can indeed change, not in your own strength or might, but in His power.

  • When you want to define yourself by your past, remember the old has gone and the new has come in Christ. 

  • Jesus chose you when He went to the cross.

Reflect:

  • In what ways do you allow yourself to be identified? 

  • Do these identities line up with who you are in Christ? 

  • What do you think it means to abide in Christ? 

  • What do you do to keep yourself in Christ?

  • The enemy wants to destroy our heart. He wants to effect the life flow of our lives to keep us from walking in the victorious life Jesus has for us.

  • Jesus never said follow your heart. He said follow Him. 

  • Go on a discovery journey to see what the Bible says about our hearts: Jer. 17:9; Psalm 18:45, 73:21, 73:26, 51:10; Matt. 6:21, 5:8, 9:4, 15:8, 15:19; Mark 10:5; John 14:1; I Cor. 4:1-2; Rom. 1:21, 24; II Thess. 3:5; Eph. 3:17; Rom. 10:10; Col. 3:1.

  • Jesus' heart for us led Him to the cross where He took our sin, our pain, and our sorrow. He forgave everything we have done, and he healed everything that has been done to us.

  • “Righteousness is the application of the truth of Jesus in everyday life." Tony Evans

  • God has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit to instruct and empower us in our journey.

  • When we are in Christ, we must guard our heart and protect it from unrighteousness.

Reflect:

  • How has your heart led you astray before? 

  • What steps can you take to love God with all your heart?

Scriptures used: Revelation 3:14-22; Revelation 7:14; Colossians 1:18-20

  • If Jesus says that there is something that makes Him sick enough to vomit, we should probably pay attention to what that is. 

  • If we are a follower of Christ, there must be something about us that stands out and makes us different from the culture around us. 

  • Earthly riches can't fix a broken soul. 

  • Our faith cannot be in our own ability to obtain. Our faith must be in God as our provider.

  • Our lives should shout the worthiness of God!

  • "If today's church does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authenticity, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the twentieth century." Martin Luther King Jr.

  • We may be lukewarm in our faith if:

    We crave acceptance from people more than God.

    We rarely share our faith.

    We rationalize our sin.

    We value life on Earth more than eternity in Heaven.

    We only turn to God if we need something. 

    We only give when it's convenient.

    We're not much different from the culture we live in. 

  • "We don't hate sin; we hate the thought of going to hell." Francis Chan

Reflect:

  • As a follower of Christ, have I simply tried to infuse faith into my life, or have I given everything over to Christ? 

  • In what ways have I allowed the culture to infuse my faith and walk with Christ? 

  • Are there any of the characteristics of a lukewarm Christian mentioned in the message that may be evident in my life?

We often find ourselves caught up in the culture of this age and trusting too much in money, material things, status, and sex. The thing is, trust like that leads to misery and isolation and death. But turning, and trusting God instead, leads to joy and connection and life. (Note: This plan is geared toward men, but can be applied to anyone.)

Scriptures used: Ephesians 6:10-18; Romans 8:37-39; Joshua 24:15; 2 Corinthians 4:4; 2 Corinthians 11:14; John 8:44; 2 Timothy 4:3-4

  • There is an enemy and there is a battle to be fought, but we must never forget that we fight from a place of victory. 

  • Serving Jesus is our life, our foundation, and not a Sunday morning religious exercise. 

  • Our faith in Christ shouldn't be something we put on and put off. Our enemy is always in attack mode, we must always be ready. 

  • God has empowered us with the Holy Spirit to stand in the pressure of life.

  • His love compels us to want to live according to the TRUTH, because we know In Jesus there is freedom, peace, joy and hope.

Reflect:

  • What can you do to stand in truth against the lies of culture? 

  • How can you guard yourself from fighting and arguing against people while still standing for Christ's truth? 

  • What can you do everyday to make sure you are protected by the armor of God?

Based on Abdu Murray's book Saving Truth. It provides arguments from a Christian perspective for the foundations of truth and how those foundations apply to sexuality, identity, morality, and spirituality. For those enmeshed in the culture of confusion, the book offers a way to untangle oneself and find hope in the clarity that Christ offers.

  • In Christ you are seen as a winner. You are more than an overcomer. 

  • There are times where we go through struggles and difficulties, but in those times we hold on to the hope we have in Christ. 

  • Darkness doesn’t leave because the light shouts at it. It leaves because the light shines in it.

  • When you begin to get weary you need to begin to worship. 

  • Scripture is clear there is an enemy, an accuser, and a deceiver, but Jesus is our friend, Jesus is our advocate, and Jesus is truth. That's why in Christ we have victory! 

  • In this life we will face battles, and in these battles we are more than conquerors in Christ who loves us.

  • If you are tired, your strength is not found in anything in this life, your strength comes from the Lord. Find yourself In Christ.

Reflect:

  • What causes you to feel defeated, to feel worn out? 

  • How do you face moments in life that feel overwhelming?

  • Create a list of verses you can reflect on that remind you how in Christ you can overcome. Create a playlist of worship songs that help you remember the victory you have in Christ.
