WAITING WHILE DESPERATE Waiting is so hard! Truth be told, we all spend a lot of time waiting, and most do not find it pleasant.

THE PROCESS OF DISCIPLESHIP

THE PROCESS OF DISCIPLESHIP 2 Timothy 2:1-2; Acts 18 What is a biblical disciple and what is a biblical disciple-maker? A disciple is one who is radically committed to learning how to follow Jesus in every dimension of life. A disciple-maker is a mature, growing Jesus-follower who is actively working to reproduce Christ-like character in the life of a few people – equipping those people to follow Jesus in every dimension of their life by means of personal investment in…

THE SUMMONS TO SURRENDER

THE SUMMONS TO SURRENDER Matthew 28:16-20 What is the summons that we are called to surrender to? There are 4 words in our focus passage that perfectly summarize the gospel message of Matthew. The 4 words are imperatives, commands … COME, SEE, GO, and TELL. The Resurrection and the Great Commission give us the power to start over – Jesus gives us the power to keep going. He gives us the power to change, to be different. The greatest day in…

O, THE WONDERFUL CROSS

O, THE WONDERFUL CROSS Matthew 27:33-54 There is no other day in history that rises to the level of the day the King of Kings was crucified.

It was infamous because He came unto His own and His own received Him not; the Creator was put to death by…

WHAT ABOUT PETER? (Part 2)

WHAT ABOUT PETER? (Part 2) Matthew 26 There’s a little bit of Peter in all of us! Peter’s life illustrates how a believer may backslide and lose his testimony. Under pressure, Peter caved to his fear and pride. Peter had the right desire, the needed determination, but he had ­the wrong dependence. Unfortunately, Peter’s dependence was an unhealthy confidence in himself. Peter learned the hard way that we must look to God for strength. So, what about Peter? We see…
