Pastor Jim Buske sets our hearts at ease as he opens up Matthew 6:25-34 and teaches us, from Jesus' own words, to live with confidence because we know where we'll land.
If you aren't sure if God loves you, you need to read this section of Scripture. If you aren't sure if God is on your side, you need to read this section of Scripture. If God feels more like a fiend than a friend, you need to read this section. If you feel like God isn't good and you're growing bitter, you need to know this section of Scripture. Paul demonstrates to us the truth that God does in fact love us. Romans 5:6-11
As we’ve walked through this ONE series, we’ve seen repeatedly that there is only ONE. Through faith we’re part of the ONE body of Christ. We’re part of the ONE church of Jesus. We’re part of the ONE family of God. And we’ve been sent forth on ONE mission, to make the name of God great in all the world. We’ve focused largely on the often hidden and invisible reality that we are truly ONE body, ONE church, with ONE mission. Today, as we wrap up this series we’re going to listen to Paul as he teaches the Corinthians about how to work on the visible and the seen. He’s going to teach us to work for a greater and deeper external unity. We are a unified church. Paul is teaching us work at this unity. He is teaching us to work hard to preserve and keep unity in the body both doctrinally (in our teachings), practically (in the things that we do), and in all of our relationships with each other. There is a very real unity. And in these words of farewell Paul teaches us to work for greater and deeper unity. 2 Corinthians 13:11-14
Good Friday has a major impact on us and leaves an impression on us. The death of Jesus left an impression on a Centurion. He simply confessed, "Surely this man was the Son of God." Mark 15:39
Everyone has their price. That was the contention of Ted Dibiase, aka the “Million Dollar Man.” He went out and proved it. He’s right. We’re all chasing something and will pay almost any price to get it and keep it. Jesus had something on his mind and he was willing to do whatever it took to get it. Whenever everyone else fled away from the fight, Jesus rose up to meet it and embraced it because embracing it meant he could embrace you. Mark 14:42-52.
Who's your enemy? It's a more difficult question to answer than you might expect. The command that prompts the question is even higher and more difficult to follow than you might expect as a result. Listen in below to know the heart of God's will for your life, but also the heart of his gospel that's for you too. Matthew 5:38-48.
