Who's Your One?

Imagine if every believer could answer that question with the name of a person who is far from God – a person for whom they’re praying and with whom seeking to share the gospel. That’s the intention behind Who’s Your One. We believe God’s people don’t merely need another method for evangelism – what they need is a sincere passion to see people who are far from God experience the new life He offers through Jesus Christ.

Follow God’s Plan

June 23, 2019

Surely we, both as individuals and as a church, must take Christ’s commission to take the Good News to the nations seriously, and we do. But sometimes focusing on the many can cause us to overlook the importance of going after the one! Yet, God never overlooks the one.

Luke the physician wrote Acts as a historical record of the early church. This first century church was marked by God’s presence and power in such a vital way that they literally turned the world upside down for Christ. What was their secret? They followed God’s plan. In Luke’s book of Acts, he recorded how the early church followed God’s plan to be His witnesses.

Put Your Yes on the Table

We can find so many reasons to say "No". You might be in rebellion against God. You might not think you have what it takes. Maybe you're not seeing the results you wanted to see and you are weary. Or maybe you feel like a failure and you've been disqualified. In this series, we are learning how our lives can be radically transformed when we put our "Yes" on the table with God.

The Restored Yes

June 16, 2019

What if you had your yes on the table–even a radical yes that you had once given God–but then you made mistakes that led you to taking your yes off the table and now you feel distant from God? Maybe you have other relationships that have either become distant or severed because you can’t forgive them or they can’t forgive you?

We can give God our “Restored Yes”, whereby we accept the gift of grace He offers to us to heal our broken past with Him and to take steps towards restoration. As we give God our restored yes, we can pray for restoration in every relationship in our lives. It is only through His grace and power that we can experience this kind of restoration.

The Relentless Yes

June 9, 2019

What if we’ve taken the step to put our yes on the table but then life got difficult and we took it back off? What if we had our yes on the table and were waiting on God to move but He never did, so we took our yes back off? What if our yes is still on the table this morning but we’re exhausted, burning out, and we’re very close to taking our yes back off the table? Today we will learn how to give God our “Relentless Yes,” whereby we keep our yes on the table, no matter what life throws at us; no matter how long we have to wait; no matter how tired we get.

In the book of Joshua, the writer recorded how Joshua trusted God with his relentless yes in defeating the city of Jericho. We can trust God with our relentless yes to whatever He asks us to do.

The Reluctant Yes

June 2, 2019

What if we’re warming up to the idea of trusting God Himself—not just His plan—with our lives, but then He calls us to do something that we feel unequipped for? Something we don’t feel worthy to do? Something we outright don’t want to do? Many of us hear that calling and get stopped in our tracks, thinking of a million reasons why we can’t do something, so time passes and we don’t give God our yes; we reluctantly say no with our actions. In the book of Exodus, Moses wrote how he reluctantly gave God his yes when God called him to free the people of Egypt. We can give God our yes even when we feel reluctant.

The Repentant Yes

May 26, 2019

What do we do if we’ve said no to God? Many of us find ourselves in this difficult place. We have said no to Jesus by putting off saying yes to salvation in Christ. Perhaps we fear what God might do in our lives if we receive Him. In the book of Jonah, Jonah wrote how he finally gave God his yes when God brought him to repentance in the depths of the sea. We can give God our repentant yes and turn from our mistakes, no matter how much we’ve said no to Him in the past.

Got Questions?

Doubts and questions are not inherently bad—questioning can actually lead to a solid faith. In fact, the opposite of faith is not an unending list of questions, but rather a lack of trust in God. The followers of Jesus were full of doubts and questions that first Easter and for the weeks that followed His resurrection, yet they found reasons to believe. The truth has nothing to fear—so what are your questions?

Why Suffering?

May 12, 2019

For most who pose the question of why God allows suffering, it is neither a philosophical, nor a theological one. For most, it is a personal question. What’s your story today? How are you dealing with the problem of suffering and evil in our world?

God inspired the apostle Paul to consider the problem of suffering and to write to encourage the believers in Rome. He revealed that there’s definitely more to the story! In Paul’s letter to the Romans, he explained why there is suffering in God’s creation, encouraging them to compare it against the weight of God’s glory that awaits those who believe. We can understand why there is suffering in God’s creation, knowing that a greater glory awaits those of us who believe.

Why Science?

May 5, 2019

Paul knew that faith and knowledge are not mutually exclusive, but indeed, they are mutually beneficial. An examined faith, where doubts are addressed and facts considered, is better than a faith that is held blindly. Paul’s purpose for writing the new believers in the city of Colossae was to help them add a growing knowledge of Christ to the faith they had already expressed by trusting in Him.

He wrote to encourage them to grow in their knowledge of Christ as the supreme explanation for all things, so that their faith in Him might also increase. We can grow in our knowledge of Christ as the supreme explanation for all things, so that our faith is increased.

Why Hypocrites?

April 28, 2019

If you talk to a few non-believers, it won’t take you very long to hear something like this: “I don’t go to church because the church is full of hypocrites.” In the apostle John’s first letter, he warned against the hypocrisy of claiming to be a Christ-follower without living according to His teachings. We can heed this warning against hypocrisy as Christ-followers.

Why Jesus?

April 21, 2019

How can we tell what’s true? What’s real? Should we just deny our doubts and take a blind leap of faith? No. The disciples certainly didn’t. They thought the resurrection was an “idle tale,” not the truth. Even when Jesus appeared to them, Jesus asked them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?” Even his disciples doubted before they believed.

In the gospel according to Luke, he wrote an orderly account of Jesus’ resurrection, so that his readers might be certain of the truth that He is the Messiah, the Son of God. We can be certain that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God. How can we be certain? The text gives four reasons why Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God.

Palm Sunday

On this day, we remember the day of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the first day of Passion Week, so named because it was the week that ended with Christ’s suffering and death on the cross. Passion Week began with Christ’s triumphal entry on Sunday and ended with His terrible exit on Friday.

Recognizing Christ’s Visitation

April 14, 2019

When Jesus visited Jerusalem on that day, it was the first day of Passover Week. Great numbers of Jews had traveled from all over the Roman Empire to celebrate this annual Jewish festival. A great crowd greeted Jesus as he entered Jerusalem responding to him with chanting, throwing their cloaks on the ground before him and waving of palm branches. They greeted him in a manner befitting a king, but before the week was out, the crowd would curse him as a criminal.
Jesus called his visit to Jerusalem that day a “visitation.” In the Greek, it has the sense of a formal visit or inspection by a dignitary. In English, the word “visitation” has the same meaning. On Palm Sunday we remember the visitation of the Son of God to Jerusalem.

In the gospel according to Luke, Jesus expressed His desire that the people of Jerusalem would have recognized His visitation to them as the Messiah, the Christ, the Son of God. We can recognize Christ’s visitation to us.
