What is disciple-making? How do we take steps towards building those kind of relationships? In part one of our series on Practical Disciplemaking, we explore Jesus' invitations and instructions about these first steps.
Why did the angel appears to the shepherds and what good news is there for us today? As Advent starts, we begin our series of walking through each line in Psalm 23 and addressing the shepherding theme in the OT and within Jesus' ministry.
What should we say when we come to the Lord in prayer? This foundational question is essential for any disciple of Jesus who wants to grow into a rich prayer life. To answer it, we dig into John 11, Luke 22 and Luke 10 to understand Jesus' prayer life and how to apply his parable from Luke 18 to our daily lives.
What does it mean to 'delight' in Scripture - as Psalm 119:47 describes? Likewise, how do believer's know if they are delighting in Scripture? What fruit does it produce in our desires? We look at these questions by studying the posture of Jesus as a 12 year-old and as He entered full-time ministry.
Jesus invites his disciples to 'always pray' but how realistic is that? As this series continues, we take some time to better understand how to live a life of prayerfulness - and how God can use that for His glory.
What are Christians instructed to do with the 90% of our income, after we give our firstfruits back to the Lord? Does God have any expectations in regards to our money management? We dig into these very practical questions and look at the nuts and bolts of creating a simple budget.
What led up to Peter denying Jesus and what does his answer have to do with you? Jesus' character, his words, and his response during his arrest reveal how the Kingdom of God is established in our day. The problem is that many of us find it foolish or even offensive. Put yourself back in Peter's shoes as we study Jesus' unarmed dependence upon God's will.
Is salvation from Hell limited to only those who trust in Jesus? Are there multiple paths to God? We explore the answers to these important questions - arriving at answers that many would perceive as 'narrow-minded.'
What currency does the church offer which can be found nowhere else? The answer is forgiveness. But the deeper challenge is that Jesus associates forgiveness with financial language. Is it possible to forgive even if it affects our bank accounts? Explore Jesus' hard teachings about forgiveness.
What kind of leader does God use for His kingdom? God's answer is radically different that the world's answer. We'll look at the qualifications of Levi (Matthew) and consider what it means to lead like Jesus.
