Michael shares on how the presence of God is available to us through Jesus and the Holy Spirit, and how we can access the power of God today.
Worship is how we respond to our knowledge and experience of God. We often find it easier to worship God when times are good than when hardships and tragedy occur. Yet (spoiler alert) God is sovereign in both the good times and the hard times. Michael explores the sovereignty of God, challenging us to rest in his sovereign nature.
When we talk about Jesus, how can we be both True to Jesus and Culturally Relevant at the same time? In this talk, we see that we just need to keep pointing people to Jesus. And, in pointing them to Jesus, we can tell people that they’ll love Jesus (he’s amazing), (yet in some ways) they’ll hate Jesus, and (like it or not) they need Jesus.
A healthy biblical community throws their time and effort into both friendship and mission. Michael shows us a case study in this tension from the book of Acts, the story of the beginning of the early church.
When we start following Jesus, there is some combination of “Show and Tell” involved. It’s actually a mandatory activity for us. Hear John share on waht this means and how we can start to participate.
One of Jesus’ final prayers was that his followers would be one just as Jesus is one with the Father. This weekend, Brian shares about how being engaged in diverse community helps us grow in unity with one another.
