Prophet
Lead Where You Are: Prophet During this pandemic, leadership is needed now more than ever. No matter who you are, someone is looking to you to help them through. Christ’s ministry consisted of three ways He led us – as a prophet (someone who proclaimed God’s Word), as a priest (someone who sacrificed on our behalf), and as a king (someone who rules according to God’s ways). Christ, in turn, gives to us what He has done. He is a prophet who calls us to speak His Word as His witnesses. … It can be tempting to grumble and argue during a time like this. Yet, we are called to hold on to and hold out God’s Word of life to a world that needs it. This is what Paul did for the Philippians and this is what we are called to do for our world. My Next Step(s): - I will seek to reduce my grumbling, complaining and arguing. - I will reflect before I speak, recognizing that sometimes I lead by what I do NOT say. - I will be intentional about what I DO say - such that I hold forth the Word of Life. - I will seek to leave a legacy that brings glory to God on the Day Jesus returns.

    Get Started
    Series: (All)
    We can never finish the things we never start. Sometimes, we spend so much time thinking about how to start something that we never actually start it. In this message we look at how Moses had a few excuses when God told him to go back to Egypt and free the Israelites. But for every excuse, God will always be with us and equip us when we step out in faith. Questions: - What do you want the end of your life to look like? - How will you do what you can to get started this week? - What’s something mundane in your everyday life—like Moses’ staff—that you’ll allow God to use mightily this year? - How will you experience Jesus’ presence “with you” this week? Action: - Decide today to “know who you’re with.” Invite the Holy Spirit to embolden you with His presence daily. - Stop worrying about “mile marker 20” - just start with step one and trust God with the journey.

    Scripture Alone
    Series: Sola
    When it comes to understanding God, it can be all too tempting to trust ourselves rather than God’s Word. We try to trust our consciences, our culture, or our comprehension. But going beyond God’s Word either allows us to create a God in our own image (Mark 7:1-13) or saddles us with burdens we cannot bear (Matthew 23:4). My Next Step(s): - I will not subtract from the Word of God, or ignore it. - I will not add to the Word of God—rules, regulations, traditions or otherwise. - I will not make God in my image, rather I will conform my life to the Word of God. - I will find a time, place and pattern (tools) to daily experience the Word of God!

    Faith Alone
    Series: Sola
    Faith Alone The way in which we receive God’s grace is through faith. We trust that God wants to forgive and save us. If we seek to work for what God has given, we are saying that God’s work is not enough. Do we trust God’s work so completely that we do not try to add to it or augment it? My Next Step(s): - I will check sources to verify the truth of something before sharing it. - I will not lie or “move the mark” in order to justify myself! - I will not justify my sinfulness by comparing myself to others. God is my standard. - I will examine the Scriptures to “test” what they say about me, and about God. - I will find true peace through Faith Alone in Christ Alone by Grace Alone.

    Grace Alone
    Series: Sola
    Grace Alone - Grace is when God gives us what we do not deserve. In a culture that works on merit, that can be difficult for us to accept! Yet, even if grace goes against our cultural senses, it is a deep spiritual need – for each and every one of us. My Next Step(s): - I will thank God that I am released from my burden of performance. - I will receive with gratitude God’s underserved and free gift of Grace! - I will not be jealous or otherwise begrudge others of receiving God’s grace. - I will strive to be gracious to those who are indebted to me.

    Christ Alone - It is tempting to exalt ourselves over Christ. John the Baptist, however, knew that things work the way they should only when we decrease and Christ increases. In what ways are you trying to add your boasting to Christ’s work? How does that lessen your hope? My Next Step(s): - I will find my hope and place the confidence of my salvation in Christ alone! - I will point to Jesus by my attitude of humility. - I will point to Jesus by my loving service of others. - I will point to Jesus by speaking of what He has done for me, and His love for us.

    Cross Alone
    Series: Sola
    Reformation - Cross Alone Today, we celebrate a moment in time when a man with a message changed the world. In 1517, Martin Luther gave voice to concerns by posting his 95 Theses (against indulgences) on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg on October 31. His intention was to bring to light the fact that the people were being led into false belief in a practice called indulgences. What happened changed the world in profound ways. My Next Step(s): - I will bring my suffering to Jesus—He shares in my suffering. - I will bring my sin to Jesus—He forgives my sin. - I will not fear death—Jesus has conquered death on the cross! - I will find hope in the cross of Christ—for through it I have eternal life.
