When God Told Jesus “No”

The Garden of Gethsemane is loaded with many examples that we can glean from and add to our lives. In this message, I extract just a couple. It would do us all good to posture ourselves as Jesus did, in complete surrender to a will that was not His own.

When The Undesirable Remains

What do you do when something undesirable seems to persist? For weeks... for months... for years. We're not meant to just cope in our own natural abilities, nor are we to just repeat spiritual mantras about being more than conquerors as we ignore the facts. We endure, in faith.

As A Child

After spending some time with our dear friends newborn son, I've been so encouraged to go to my Father just as I am. He fully knows us as we are today. May we not in any way remain hidden but rather turn toward Him as a child in need of a perfect, loving Father.

Enduring Faith

What do we do when we rightly exercise faith in a circumstance but the results still (seemingly) lead us to what we would consider disappointment? We must become a people that endure, in faith, in all circumstances. This episode challenges us all to dig deep and endure... to the end.

Part 2: Lose Control

Part 2 of the short examination of how self-care/self-reliance/self-awareness opposes the message of Jesus and actually undermines one's spiritual growth and maturity. We are created dependent and we must remain always aware of that fact. It is for our good.

Part 1: Lose Control

The empowerment of self and discovering one's own power/abilities is increasingly infiltrating the Church. Those who desire to cling to the patterns of the Bible and teachings of Jesus must be alert and aware of it. Clearly, we're called to surrender our own strength and be a dependent people.

Author & Finisher

This episodes continues the theme of examining our faith and asking some tough questions. I would say, in order to be assured that our faith is true, we must be sure that Jesus is the author and the finisher.

Part 2: Leaving The Faith/Sound Doctrine

Part 2/Conclusion of discussing why I believe people are "leaving the faith" and what we do from here, in this age that we now live in.

Part 1: Leaving The Faith/Sound Doctrine

I decided to explore the topic of why I believe people are "leaving Christianity" as well as ask the question, "What do we do with 2 Timothy 4:3 that tells us a day is coming where people will 'no longer endure sound doctrine'?".

Asking Questions/Leaving The Faith

I intended to simply open myself to listeners questions. Then, I ended up opening the discussion about how and why people "leave the faith".
