12-2-18 “Walking in the Tension of Christ” – There is a culture war going on that lures us into two extreme ways of viewing the world. Many of us tend to spiritualize either “self-righteousness” or “no righteousness at all.” But the call of Christ bids us to consider a 3rd path: the tension of grace and truth. But, do you really know how to live in this tension? Find out! (John 8:5-11; Rev.2:26; Mk 12:31).
11-25-18 “Hitting the Right Target” – There is nothing more fulfilling than being in sync with heaven. Yet, it’s easy to get out of sync with God’s priorities. And one of the chief symptoms of this inalignment is constantly begging God for his provision. After all, provision always flows in abundance from good priorities. So, how do we know if we’re in sync with heaven? Simply look at the measure of your evangelism. (Luke 15; Mt. 25).

(Rev.2:14-26; Josh. 5).
“The Wise, the Fool, & the Wicked” (Part 6 in the series, Conquering Chaos)
We live in a world that’s filled with three types of people: the Wise, the Fools, and the Wicked. Of course, the Bible has a lot to say about each group. Yet, the Bible teaches, if we don’t know how to identify and deal with them separately, we’re going to experience unnecessary pain in our lives. So where are these 3 types in your life? And what are you doing to manage them? (Prov. 9:7-9; James 3:17-18; Isa. 58:9-10)
