(Luke 1:5-20, 67-80) 

We all face seasons in our faith when God seems silent. We wonder if He cares... we wonder why we even trust. In those times when our faith may be shaky we can still cling to hope.

(James 1:27, 2:14-17, 4:13-17)

One of the results of God's work in our lives is that we begin to look at people through a different set of eyes. Specifically, it changes the way we see people in need. Seeing through the eyes of Jesus means looking at people with compassion. If our faith doesn't result in acts of compassion then it hasn't fully formed in us. Every time we feel compelled to act but do nothing we become less likely to ever take action.

(Acts 15:5-20)

How can we "not make it hard" for those turning to God?

Christ told his apostles to take the Gospel message to every nation (Matt 28:19-20), but he did not mean only to the Jews in those nations. He meant that the Gospel was for everyone. But did he mean that Gentile believers were to become Jewish? This was a very serious question for the apostles because Jesus was the Messiah that God had promised to the Jews, and the early church was comprised mostly of Jews. This message looks at the key issues highlighted in this passage that deal with how the early church dealt with Gentiles who were becoming Christians in a church culture born initially out of the Jewish faith. It still applies today.

We should never be surprised at who God loves and wants to bring into His Church, or play God and decide not to talk to anyone because they are "outsiders". Instead, We need to pray for boldness and wisdom to welcome and encourage others in growing their faith in God.

In the early chapters of the book of Acts, we see the Church as a wholesome community of people following Jesus' instructions to love one another. Everything is going great... and then comes Chapter 5. What is up with this scary story of Ananias and Sapphira? Why doesn't this one get much air time in church?

The purpose of the church can be summed up in one word... Action. The book of Acts provides a history of the founding and growth of the early church. Acts is not just history, though. It also provides insight into personal experiences of conversion, redemption and growth in a Christ-following lifestyle. it is a call to action for the modern church.

(2 Timothy 1:1-14, 2:11-13, 2:20-22; Acts 1:8)

2 Timothy is the final known letter from the Apostle Paul at the end of his ministry. Paul never let his flame die down, and as a result most of the New Testiment was written by him under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. In this letter to Timothy, his young protege, we learn that if we let our lives reflect God's handiwork and reveal His divine power working through us then others will want to experience that same power in their lives too.

(Daniel 3) 

Daniel 3 describes how Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to bow down to King Bebuchadnezzars golden image since that would have compromised their faith in the one true God. They were sentenced to die for their disobedience. But in the extremely stressful situation, things did not turn out the way the King expected them to. 

When we face stressful situations in our daily life, we need to remember that others are watching us to see how we manage the stress. Do we act like everyone else might? Or do we have something more to draw on? God may not chose to remove stress from our lives, but He will always be there with us as we go through it.

(Matthew 6:25-34)

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus provided valuable insight about the cause, futility and remedy for stress (or worry). He was teaching his new followers true and practical ways to righteous life, often contrasting them with worldly or religious norms. In this passage he addressed stress as it relates to material things.

(Mark 4:35-41) 

Stress often shows itself when we lose control during certain situations. It can also be seen as the difference between what we think should happen and reality.

Mark tells us about Jesus' demonstration of divine power over nature by calming a storm on the Sea of Galilee. His disciples were in high stress and needed some calming of their own.
