The Grid – One Moment

So far we’ve learned that everyone has a worldview, and that Jesus invites us to adopt his grid if we want to experience freedom and joy in this life. A biblical worldview is all about being in proper relationship, first with God and then with others. But adopting a biblical worldview is more than an…

The Grid – Upside Down

Everyone has a grid – a way of seeing and living in the world. Many people put themselves at the center of that grid, doing what makes them happy and promoting their personal opinions. It’s the default tendency of every human heart, and while it seems innocent enough, the Bible teaches that a “me first”…

The Grid – Dangerous Ideas

Everyone has a grid, a worldview – the set of basic beliefs and assumptions through which they see the world. But that grid is not perfect. There are gaps in everyone’s understanding, misconceptions and blind spots that can come back to bite you someday if you’re not careful. Broken relationships, money problems, wayward children, addictions…

What are you working for?

Everyone works. Whether you are an executive, a student, a plumber, or a stay-at-home mom, everyone spends their lives working for something. But have you ever asked yourself, what am I building with my life? Chances are that many of us are spending our lives building the wrong thing. This is the central truth of…

You Will Become What You Worship

Isaiah 6:9-10 (MSG) He said, “Go and tell this people: “’Listen hard, but you aren’t going to get it; look hard, but you won’t catch on.’ Make these people blockheads, with fingers in their ears and blindfolds on their eyes, So they won’t see a thing, won’t hear a word, So they won’t have a…

Have you ever considered the fact that even a good thing can become an idol? The reality is that even a good thing can become a bad thing when it becomes the ultimate thing. You see, when anything or anyone becomes more important than God, even if it is a good thing, it will eventually…

The Heart Wants What It Wants

What if I told you that idol worship is as prevalent today as it was in ancient times? And what if I told you that we all have a tendency to worship idols today? If we are not careful, we will end up replacing God with a poor substitute, and that great mistake will bring damage…

When God is Silent

(I must apologize, the audio podcast was lost for this message. – Micheal) Sometimes, as Christians, we pray for God’s help and it feels like our prayers bounce off the ceiling. God seems preoccupied elsewhere. Psalm 13 helps us understand how to respond when God doesn’t seem present or active. Even mature Christians go through…

All About Walking by the Spirit

Writing to the young Galatian church, the Apostle Paul taught several foundational truths to the early Christians there. He started with the facts of the gospel: that we are all broken and in need of a savior, and Jesus went to the cross to make a way for us to become right with God. Having…
