Jesus: Future Resurrection (Mark 12:18, Part 1)

Believing in God does not mean you have a relationship with God. Because someone believes God exists, makes good decisions, supports good causes, attends church, and is a good citizen does not indicate they are follower of Jesus or have a home in heaven. In 2 Timothy 3, Paul reminds us there are people who “will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly” (v.5, NLT). As you follow Jesus, you will encounter people like all the time. You find them at church, in your family, and your community. They are religious, talk about God, moral, and are committed to their church, but they are dangerous. Their religion is about them, not Jesus. Jesus shows us today, how to respond to them.

Lord’s Supper: Suffering (Luke 22:14-19; 1 Peter 2:21-25)

Today, we are going to observe the Lord’s Supper. There are a lot of important themes, subjects, and lessons that come from the Lord’s Supper. Lessons that address sacrifice, forgiveness, self-examination, the Lord’s return, evangelism and outreach, thankfulness, community, the blood of Christ, the sinless life of Christ, and unity to name a few. This morning we are going to focus on the theme of suffering. We are going to think about and remember what Jesus suffered for you and me and what it means to suffer for Jesus as well.

Jesus: Mountain Moving Faith (Mark 11:22-25, Part 3)

When you are going through life you are going to face many mountains. Your mountain may come in the form of a difficult marriage or divorce, financial mountain of debt that you had no control over, mountain of concerns for your children, mountain of resistance due to your faith in Christ, mountain of anxiety, fear, or depression. Mountains can take many forms. They seem permanent and immovable. You feel so small and helpless because of them. But you do not compare the size of the mountain to your size, you compare the size of the mountain to the size of God. Every mountain seems small and easy when compared to the greatness of God and the power of God. Continue reading

Jesus: Mountain Moving Faith (Mark 11:22-26, Part 2)

I want to talk to you about speaking to your mountains. There are some obstacles in life that God will give you His authority and command you to use that authority to remove a mountain in your life.

In the Bible God uses mountains to represent those things in life that are too big for us to handle alone. As you follow the Lord, you will come up against some mountains in your life but some of those mountains God will remove. Continue reading
