In just three verses in Matthew 11, Jesus gives you everything you need to know about reducing the pressures in your life. If you pay close attention to this weeks message and will put into practice Jesus’ advice, you can put away all your seminar CDs, all your self-help books, and all your motivational stuff and find the rest you so desperately want. Everything you need to know about reducing the pressures in your life is found in Matthew 11:28-30.
We don’t often like to think about what happens to those who oppose God. We are taught to love all whom God has created, and we are taught by God not to wish for the misfortune of others. While those are good and true, the prophet Obadiah reveals that God protects His children and will punish those who abuse His people. When people stand against God’s people, they are standing against God himself, and that is the height of arrogance. The Bible tells us that God lifts up the humble but opposes the proud (Ps 147:6, Pr. 29:23). As God’s children, we should take comfort in knowing that our Father is a passionate, protective father to us. And as we live in humble obedience toward Him, He will lift us up and strengthen our faith even in difficult circumstances. In this message we will explore what it means to live humble lives toward God and what it means for the humble to trust God. God has the back of the Humble.
The prophets show us who God is and what He wants from His people. The truth about God’s word, when we approach it humbly, is that it challenges us....all of us. Inevitably, God will open our eyes to things we have come to believe and live that are out of step with who He is and what His purposes are. Amos brought God’s word to people and they were very angry because they felt he was incorrect in his estimation of who God is and his judgement of their beliefs and behavior. (They were so angry, in fact, that they killed him.) The truth was that Amos wasn’t saying anything new about God, it’s just that the people had, over time, come to think of God differently. Amos is as likely to offend our sensibilities about how we believe and live as he did the people in his day. There are parts of God that we might have forgotten about over the years, which Amos brings to light. May we be receptive to God’s word brought to us through the prophet Amos.
Have you ever found yourself so caught up in the present that you forgot where you were headed in life? Sometimes we see this in our finances, present needs cause us to forget our larger life goals. Losing our vision for the future can also happen to us spiritually. This lost picture of God and the future God had for his people is what the prophet Joel was passionate about. The prophet Joel is convinced that part of being effective in the present is a clear picture of and hope for the future. This is a tremendous challenge to followers of Jesus, reminding us that taking our eyes off of our future hope leads to failure and lostness in the present. An effective life involves prepping for our future, which is what we will be talking about in this message.
This Sunday, we begin a series examining some of the prophets in the Old Testament. These prophets were folks who God used to issue a wakeup call to His people who were moving through life like spiritual zombies. The prophets saw a new reality for the people of God and pleaded with them to live in this reality. Hosea was one such prophet. From him we hear the voice of God calling His people to trust Him again.
This message comes from Genesis chapter 4 where we find the story of Cain and Able. It is an excellent reminder that humility and repentance before the Lord is the path to grace and forgiveness. 
A message by Cory Detweiler in the Growing Young series entitled: "The Mission of Discipleship and Growing Young".
Churches who are growing young are churches who care about the neighborhoods they live in. This message will draw from the story of the Good Samaritan and examine how we become the kind of church that actively cares about our communities. The message may be challenging because there are various ways in which we are called to be good neighbors that get under our skin and cause us discomfort.
In years past, many churches have assumed that if they can create a concert like atmosphere that gives off a super trendy vibe, young people will be attracted to the church and begin to follow Jesus. This Sunday we begin with the scriptures in which we examine the results of the Spirit’s movement among people. The New Testament reveals that when God’s Spirit dwells among a people, there is warmth and care for each other (Shocking!). Moreover, research indicates that young people crave this reality far more than the attractional model of church life so many churches have chased over the last several decades. This is good news, because this is the kind of community we often are and can consistently become. For young people today, “Warm” is the new cool.
This message is about the “message” effective churches are instilling in their young people. In this message we will examine the importance of a Jesus centered message and its effect on young people’s faith. We will also examine a few popular “messages” in churches that do not help young people develop a mature faith.
