    Destination: Spiritual Maturity
    Spiritual maturity is an inner condition that produces external results.  Jesus used the image of a tree bearing fruit in discussing spiritual maturity.  In John 15, we see a daily “direction” that will lead us toward our desired destination.

    Destination: Healthy Relationships

    If we are going to reach our “destination” of having healthy relationships, we must consider who we are and what we contribute to our relationships – not just thinking about what the other person is or isn’t doing but looking at our own responsibilities.

    Destination: Financial Freedom
    In considering a destination that most people consider desirable, we must recognize that our heart’s direction will determine whether or not we experience financial freedom.

    Direction Determines Destination
    As we begin a new series, we look to the basic principle in life that direction determines destination. We may have great intentions, but direction doesn't always match intention. Therefore, we must pay close attention to the steps we are taking because steps become a path that goes in a particular direction.

    King Herod felt that his power was threatened when he heard of Jesus’ birth, and he resorted to extraordinary measures.  We may not go to such extremes, but we often cling to control in our own lives as well.  Principles in Matthew help us learn how we can surrender and be free.

    Son of the Most High
    Through the events leading to Jesus’ birth in Luke 1:26-38, we see God’s power at work in the lives of real people regardless of circumstances, and in Mary, we see an example of how to respond to God’s power at work in our own life.

    “Thankful in All Circumstances”

    Thankful for People

    Obstacles that are Too Big
    Series: Obstacles
    As we conclude the OBSTACLES series, we face the reality that God will actually give us more than we can handle.  That’s right.  Despite what you may have heard, God will give us more than we can handle.  And that’s a good thing!  When we face more than we can handle, we are driven to trust only in God.  (2 Corinthians 1:9 “But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.”)  Sometimes in life, we face obstacles that are too big for us.
  • Oct 13, 2013Obstacles: “Me”

    Obstacles: “Me”
    Series: Obstacles
    In Mark 9, we see the “following” roller coaster that was common for the disciples – and for us as well.  One of their major obstacles seems to be themselves – just as we are often our own obstacle.  In John 13, Jesus shows us the way forward – serving with humility.

    Obstacles: Everyday Things
    Series: Obstacles
    Jesus told the “rich young ruler” to sell everything and then to come and follow him.  In the same way, we are called to daily set aside the every day things of life than can be obstacles for us so that we may fully follow God.
