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.

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.

Jesus Goes Where No One Goes

(Mark 5:1-20) Jesus was not afraid to go into situations where no one else would venture. He did not avoid the difficult situations, including when he and his disciples were confronted with a demon possessed man who claimed his name was Legion. Jesus set this man free from his affliction and at the same time demonstrated his power over the evil one.

Renew-Part 4: ReLinquish

(Psalm 131) We often have difficulty knowing where the boundaries are between God's role and ours in our daily lives. We like to have things our way in almost all areas in our life except when it's obvious that we need God's help in some aspect of our life. Maybe instead of saying "God, I love you... but could you just do this for me...", we should just try saying "God, I love you..."

Renew-Part 1: ReNew

(Psalm 23) We're all familiar with the words, "The Lord is my shepherd." But what does life under the care of a shepherd look like? As you'll hear in this message, you choose a life of contentment instead of worry, a life of rest instead of frantic activity, a life of reflection instead of noisy distraction, and a life of connectedness instead of wandering.

The Prodigal God - Part 3: The Heart of the Father & the Older Son

(Luke 15:1-3, 11-32) We often see the parable of the prodigal son through the eyes of the father and often don't take the time to examine the heart of the oldest son in the story. There is much we can learn about our own heart and the way we see others who have lost their way. This message examines the return of a lost son from both perspectives; a loving father who has waited for a very long time for his son's return and a selfish older son who sees nothing but frustration when his brother finally returns.
