“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith…” In this 2-part mini-series, we examine these foundational words that the Apostle Paul wrote to the Ephesians. Today, we explore what the concept of "grace" is really all about, and what actually means for us today.
We wrap up the "Days of Hope" series by talking about Pentecost - the day that God sent his Holy Spirit to empower us for his purposes. Don't miss it!
One of the most important "Days of Hope" - but the one that is least understood and least talked about - is the ascension. In this message, we invite you to hear about the hope of the ascension of Jesus.
This morning - Easter morning! - we take a look at the hope that is found in the resurrection of Jesus. Don't miss it!
Looking back at 4 different Days of Hope, how does the death of Christ move us into hope? The darkness? The temple curtain? The soldier's realization? Hear about it right here.
Silence. Solitude. Jesus needed it. And so do we. In a world that is noisy and hunting for our attention, what could the value of silence be for our lives, for our direction, and for our relationship with the God whom we meet there?
If this pandemic has taught us anything, it's that we need to learn to wait: for a cure, through a quarantine, for nice weather, for things to 'back to normal'. In our waiting, we can be discouraged and distraught...or we can learn to wait in faith - with patience and with hope. We can learn how to do that from the story of Joseph.
In a world of so much distraction, one of our biggest challenges is simply being present to the people in our lives. But isn't that what people truly need? It's something Jesus was great at, and we can learn from him.
In today's message, we explore the last barrier that keeps people away from following Jesus: our own judgmentalism. It was actually something that Jesus could see coming from miles away - and he warned us about. Too bad we tend not to listen! Let's start listening today.
