Aug 17 Loving People / Matthew 22:37-40

Brad Bell

Following the command to love God completely is the second command to love people. Jesus forces a spiritual love of God to express itself in the world around us. Filled with grit, covered by the stench of this world, with calloused hands and a humble heart, our love of God should be expressed in our… More

Aug 10 Loving God / Matthew 22:34-40

Shea Sumlin

Jesus tells us that the most important commandment in the entire Bible is to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind. But what exactly does that mean? What does that look like? And how are we to go about cultivating a relationship with God when our affections are so prone to drifting toward… More

Aug 3 The Unlikely God / 1 Corinthians 1:26-31

Shea Sumlin

In this series we have studied unlikely people and how God used them in unlikely ways to bring about deliverance for the nation of Israel. Hopefully we have also been able to see ourselves in these stories as unlikely individuals who God can redeem, restore and use for His glory. But more than… More

Jul 27 The Unlikely: Gideon / Judges 6:1-8:35

Brad Bell

Faithless and doubting. These terms describe the next unlikely, Gideon, a man who was terrified by circumstances and doubted God’s ability to deliver. Test after test ensued as Gideon tried to ensure that God was with him. Even in faithless duty God used Gideon and delivered the people of God from… More

Jul 20 The Unlikely: Deborah, Barak and Jael / Judges 4:1-5:31

PJ Lewis

We continue our series with a look at an unlikely trio (a prophet, a military leader, and a foreigner's housewife) that God used in tandem to deliver Israel. Of these three, the most unlikely is Jael, and yet she is the heroine. In her, we see someone who didn't allow a lack of training, experience… More

Jul 13 The Unlikely: Samson / Judges 13:1-16:31

Brad Bell

Driven by his flesh and motivated by his passions Samson is a true Unlikely. Taught for years in Sunday School classes as a hero of the faith, he is immortalized in the text as a man of unbridled lust. Though exposed to the things of God, Samson’s life is defined by poor decisions, rash judgments… More

Jul 6 The Unlikely: Jephthah / Judges 11:1-12:7

Shea Sumlin

Jephthah was the illegitimate son of a prostitute mother and adulterous father. He was despised and rejected by his half-brothers, stripped from his rightful inheritance, and forced out of his home and onto the streets, where he would eventually join a gang and commit to a life of crime and… More

Jun 29 The Unlikely: Ehud / Judges 3:12-30

PJ Lewis

Ehud was a judge who was "left-handed." The Hebrew phrase for this is "weak or restricted in the right hand," which seems to communicate what Ehud couldn't do well rather than what God was able to do with him. He was physically different than most people and possibly disabled. This week we take a… More

Jun 22 The Unlikely: Othniel / Judges 3:7-11

Brad Bell

Othniel, whose name means “Lion of God,” was the only Judge with no inherent flaws spoken about him, and he was at least 60 years old when God raised him up to be a Judge. Though he was an unlikely Judge due to his age, he had seen God’s faithfulness over the years. Through his short story, we learn… More

Jun 15 The Unlikely: The Cycle / Judges 1:1-3:6

Brad Bell

After 430 years immersed in the paganism of Egypt, the people of God were finally delivered from their bondage. It was relatively easy getting the people out of Egypt; the hard work would be getting Egypt out of the people. For nearly four decades they wandered through the deserts of the Sinai… More
