You are…So Be…So That…
What an object is often clues us in to what it does. Jesus uses that same truth when teaching us about being his disciples. He says, "You are salt" and "You are light." So what does that tell us we should be and do? And even more importantly, why? For what purpose? Discipleship for Christ comes down to understanding the three factors: Form, function, and purpose. Today, Jesus tells us, "You are...So Be...So That..."

    “Backwards” Blessedness
    What does it look like to live a "blessed" life? The world has one perspective, but what Jesus shares in the Beatitudes about who is blessed might seem a little "backwards!"

    Look, the Lamb of God!
    Why do people refer to Jesus as the Lamb of God? If Jesus is the Son of God and the Savior of the world, doesn't it seem like he should have a title based on an animal that's a little more wise, swift, or powerful than cute, wooly, little lambs? Watch Pastor Troy's sermon, "Look, the Lamb of God!" to see why that title for Jesus is so meaningful for our lives, and our eternity!

    Asking God “Why?”
    It seems almost out of place. After all the heartwarming accounts of Christmas joy, to so quickly read an absolutely heartbreaking account of state-sponsored infanticide. Why does this event happen? And maybe more pressingly, why doesn't God seem to do anything to stop it? Whether you've asked God "Why?" about the account often called The Slaughter of the Holy Innocents, there are probably other things in your life that have caused you to ask God "Why?" Watch Pastor Troy's sermon to learn more about the "why" of God in this account, and how we can apply those truths to every circumstance of life that leaves us asking God, "Why?"

    A Savior Is Born to You (Christmas Eve)
    There are many people in history that have "changed the world" in some way or another. But on Christmas Eve, we rejoice in the birth of a child who truly did come to change the world! Watch Pastor Troy's Christmas Eve sermon to see how Jesus has truly changed the world--and more importantly, how he's changed your eternity!

    Are You the One?
    Christmas is a season of great expectations. But if those expectations go unmet, they can lead to great disappointment! And great disappointment over unmet expectations can easily lead to doubt. That's true about our faith in Jesus as well. It happened to John the Baptist, and it can happen to us as well! So we look to the example of John the Baptist, as he takes his doubts to Jesus, and sees why we have no reason to doubt our Messiah!

    Rejoice to Meet the Judge
    A message of impending judgment hardly seems like the sentiment we'd want to hear during the Christmas season. But maybe it's the message we need to hear! Because Advent isn't just about preparing to meet Jesus, baby born in Bethlehem. It's also about preparing to meet Jesus, the Judge of all! The message of John the Baptist helps us see how we can be prepared to meet the Judge, not with fear, but with joyful, eager anticipation!

    Trust in the Promise
    How do you get ready for Christmas? Everyone's answer is probably a little different. But what's interesting is how often the things we do to get ready for Christmas, can often distract us from getting our hearts ready for what Christmas is really all about--the birth of our Savior. We'll look to Luke chapter 1, and the way God helped prepare one family for the first Christmas, so that we can get our hearts ready to meet our Lord when he comes--at Christmas, and at the Last Day, by doing 3 important things: 1.) Turn Your Heart 2.) Trust in the Promise 3.) Share the Knowledge of Salvation

    See, Your King Comes to You!
    Why would we focus on the events of Palm Sunday, when we're starting the season of Advent? Why focus on Jesus' riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, when our attention is on Jesus coming into the world as a little baby? Because in many ways, Palm Sunday and Advent focus our hearts on the same thing: Jesus Coming as King! Watch Pastor Troy's sermon to find the beautiful connections between Palm Sunday and the season of Advent!
