what and why?
OCTOBER 9, 2016

 

In this inaugural message of the series, let's answers 3 questions: 

• What is character? 
• What is power? 
• Why does this matter?

 

impartation
OCTOBER 23, 2016

 

Continuing in the series "stand", let's lay a foundation necessary for understanding and embracing the biblical concept of "impartation". Highlighting Old and New Testament passages, let's shed light on the necessity to freely give away what we have freely received. I hope this practical and inspirational message will help you as you walk along with Christ.

 

the work of grace
OCTOBER 30, 2016

 

When Paul writes in Ephesians 6 about standing it's because we are in the middle of a spiritual war. We didn't ask for it, but we are in it. The devil is after the soul of your life, but so is God. Therefore, it's important that we look at Romans 5:1-5 and learn from the progression of survival (suffering) to stability (perseverance) to prosperity (character & hope). We stand in grace, and in doing so, we rejoice in life, knowing that we are hope carriers. 

 

live, love, lead like Jesus
NOVEMBER 13, 2016

 

People are hurting. People feel violated and the "system" is against them. In Matthew 9:35 Jesus saw the hurting, the diseased, the sick and he preached the Kingdom of God, demonstrating it's relevance with the power to heal. We are called to engage the world and it's pain with the gospel of the Kingdom. Let's looks at the ancient story of Nehemiah and extracts what it looks like to engage the "lost exiles" and help them live the redeemed life.

 

Christ formation. Christ demonstration.
NOVEMBER 20, 2016

 

Christ shares a staggering parable in Matthew 13, Mark 4 and Luke 8 called, "The Parable of the Sower." It's amazing because Jesus said it's a key to understanding all the parables (Mark 4:13). In this moment Jesus is teaching us the power of God's word and how significant it is to Christ formation (Character) and Christ demonstration (Power). 

 

open heart. open hands.
NOVEMBER 27, 2016

 

2 Corinthians 9 and talks about the joy, need and power of giving because we have an open heart and open hands. God provides the seed and wants us to have an appetite for more and for greatness. 

 

standing tall for the long haul
DECEMBER 4, 2016

 

Standing with the character of Jesus and in the power of Jesus is developed as you listen to the words of Jesus and put them into practice. Jesus concluded his sermon on the mount (Matthew 5-7) with a story about a wise and foolish builder. One home stood tall for the long haul and one did not. In this message we answer 3 questions, helping us learn how to "Stand Tall for the Long Haul."

 

Christ sees you... and that should make you happy.
DECEMBER 18, 2016

 

In this final message in the "Stand" series, let's celebrate the fact that God sees us because He means He will meet us where we are and will lead us into a loving, secure life that makes a difference in the lives of others.
