Jesus said we ought to love God with our minds. That means the Christian needs to exert some mental energy in an effort to grab hold of Christian doctrine. So for an entire summer, we're delving into the "ologys" of the Christian faith as we seek to add understanding to our faith.
Aliens Among Us
Late in his life, the Apostle Peter wrote a letter to Christians who were feeling marginalized by the rest of society. And his message was clear: though this world pushes you away, God pulls you close. In this sermon series through 1 Peter we will be reminded that we are but aliens and strangers, sojourning though a world in which we don't really belong. And we will be challenged to live as such.
What would compel God to send His One and Only Son to die in our place? In this Easter sermon we dig into a story that Jesus told one time … a story that answers the question.
Little Ol' Me
It’s a great big world. Or is it? In truth, the earth is just a small part of a small solar system tucked inside a galaxy that spans 100,000 light years. And this galaxy, enormous as it seems, is just one of about a billion other galaxies that inhabit our universe. Created space is so big we can’t really grasp it. And behind it is a Creator who measures it all with the palm of His hand. We have a tendency to act like the world starts and ends with us. But we’d be fools to live like this. In this series of sermons we consider the greatness of God, and how we can live in such a way that He becomes greater in the eyes of those who watch us live our lives.
Life On Mission
From Day 1, the early church had an obsession: spreading the Good News of Jesus to every person in Jerusalem, all Judea & Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. They were determined. They were creative. They were on a mission. In this critical series for Dayspring, we talk through initiatives and practices that will push us further into the mission of Jesus.
