John continues our series “A Way of LIfe that Actually Works”.
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.
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.
How can a good God allow suffering in the world? Is suffering evidence against God? What should our response to suffering be as Christians? John helps us answer these hard questions about the tension of suffering.
What does the Bible say about our suffering in this life? Is God pro-pain? Do only bad people suffer? John answers these questions and shares on how our lives can be journeys that hurt so good.
This world guarantees us that we’ll have some sort of trouble. We need God to teach us the secret to contentment, and how in Jesus we can have peace in a troubled world. What’s the secret? It has nothing to do with delusional thinking, blaming others or running away and more to do with just being still and trusting God will come through.
