7 Days to Revitalize Your Life: Eternity
Society seems to be growing out of the idea of life after death. But can we really attend a funeral and not give a thought to whether this is all life is about? When you're around death, you're close to eternity, and the veil parts a little bit and life seems very translucent.

7 Days to Revitalize Your Life: Fulfillment, Part 2
There is a high motivation for us to deny ourselves for Jesus, because when we choose what Jesus says in His Word, we can bear the fruit of a true Christian. While denying ourselves does not come naturally, we need to lean into this counterintuitive and paradoxical way to find real life.

7 Days to Revitalize Your Life: Fulfillment, Part 1
What do you really want? We could offer to help you construct a dream around your desires, but that's a cruel thing to do. Instead, as we elevate the cross, that's the real way to find fulfillment. You must lose your life to save it.

7 Days to Revitalize Your Life: Mercy, Part 2
God desires to see mercy, love, and faithfulness in us, and not sacrifice. He doesn't want religious ritual. Today we tend to focus on our morality over grace. In reality, it is Christ who saves us and then empowers us to obedience.

I was taught to define mercy like this: Grace is God giving us what we don't deserve; mercy is God not giving us what we do deserve. In this story, the tax collectors and the Pharisees energize the story as Jesus teaches about mercy.

If you're thinking to yourself, "I can't keep on going," that's not the issue. The issue is that God will keep on going. "He who called you is faithful; he will surely do it."

The End of the Journey
Often we start off on some path in life, and in the end we have a sense that it was not as good as we had hoped it would be. Even the best of human journeys ends with a sense of mild disappointment. But we have a lot to look forward to in the future in God's purpose being fulfilled in us.

The Coming of the Lord: Encourage One Another, Part 1
Our mortality is real, but Christians do not die in the sense that they will not be separated from God. We may become physically dead, but we're spiritually alive. Pastor Josh teaches how Christians can approach their physical death in a very different way.

The Coming of the Lord: A Life That Pleases God
Some people spend their whole lives looking for a church that fits their preferencesbut that's not the point of church! When we love people who are very different from us, it says to the world that these are Jesus' disciples, because the only reason we'd do so is because God is teaching us to.

Life to the Full: Globally, Part 2
Perhaps there is something in your life right now that you do not understand. Maybe it's something intellectual like a doctrine, or a place of suffering and you aren't sure why God would allow it. It is only through the lens of the cross and the resurrection, and ultimately heaven, through which everything can be understood.

Life to the Full: Globally, Part 1
Church stuff, like the music or the building or the good works people do, is not what church is meant to be about. Jesus is real and present by his spirit, and church is about Him. You can meet him and know Him.

Life to the Full: Killing Jesus
There is a great distance to be travelled between the head and the heart. How do we make that connection? There needs to be an intellectual grasp of the truth, but in order to really know God, you have to taste and see that He is good.

Life to the Full: The Resurrection and the Life, Part 2
The power of the resurrection is not intended to only give you hope for your deathbed. It is intended to free you so you no longer live in the shadowlands of death. You have this resurrection power beginning to be at work in you now. We are in Christ now and are on the path to glory.

God’s Answer to Atheism “God Is an Awesome God,” Part 2
So many people are turned off from religion because it's too commercial or manipulative, but they do believe in God. When the church attempts to squeeze itself into the mold of what it thinks are the expectations of society, it becomes just what people are not looking for.
