Jul 3 2016 Hymns / Psalm 121

Brad Bell

In Psalm 121, the psalmist asks and answers the question, “Where does my help come from?” Where do you look for help? Do you lift your eyes up to the Lord? Or do you look toward lesser things? These eight short verses talk about God’s covenantal love for His people, and they’re meant to be a… More

Jun 26 2016 Lament / Psalm 64

Dave Hawes

When pain and fear come crashing into our world, we tend to run in one of three directions: away from God, at God or to God. The power of lament is that it gives us the freedom to run to God with questions in the midst of our confusion, looking for help in the midst of our helplessness. Lament… More

Jun 19 2016 Praise / Psalm 138

Josh Hawley

Life is hard, but God is with us in every circumstance. Praising Him for who He is and what He has done for us doesn't necessarily mean our circumstances will change, but as we trust in Him, He will change us from the inside out for His glory. I can learn to praise God with all that’s happening in… More

Jun 12 2016 Intro to the Psalms / Psalm 91

Brad Bell

In the midst of difficult times, have you ever asked yourself, “Where is God?” The psalmists have. The author of Psalm 91 begins the journey of understanding circumstances by first getting an understanding of who God is. The psalmist cries out to God, longing for His deliverance, longing for His… More

Jun 5 2016 Power in Celebration / 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Brad Bell

As we experience celebrations and moments in life, let’s pause and take intentionality in them, allowing the Holy Spirit to move and work, rather than letting the moments slip by. And may we learn to raise our sights to see opportunities of marked moments, regardless of our circumstances and the… More

May 29 2016 Why We Submit to the Scriptures / 2 Peter 3:11-18

Brad Bell

In some ways, 2 Peter ends on a hard note. It’s a picture of what’s to come in the end, and Peter challenges his readers and us today to live with that end in mind. The patience and relenting nature of God should create a sense of urgency, not apathy, and that urgency should create a desire to share… More

May 22 2016 Patience for All to Repent / 2 Peter 3:1-10

PJ Lewis

It is the relentless love God has for people that brings out another of His characteristics: His relentless nature to punish. This may not be talked about often, but the Bible paints a picture over and over again of a God who patiently waits for the ungodly to repent. Perhaps the challenge for us is… More

May 15 2016 The Importance of the Scriptures / 2 Peter 2:10-22

Brad Bell

The Scriptures are so important that Peter continues to speak on the Word of God by way of reminder. He paints a picture of what the lives of people look like when they are not in His Word, of people who experience salvation but then end up back in their old life, enslaved by their old ways of life… More

May 8 2016 Why Read the Bible? / 2 Peter 1:20-2:10

PJ Lewis

The Bible. Almost all of us have at least one. But do we really know what we have? The words of God. The Bible is the source of direction and authority from God for life and for living, but there are people who disagree and believe there are other sources of truth and/or the Bible is untrue. The… More

May 1 2016 A Promise Made Sure / 2 Peter 1:12-19

Shea Sumlin

After spending the first 11 verses of this letter explaining the beauty and power of the gospel to save us, sustain us and sanctify us, Peter takes the time to explain why he's been so diligent to remind us of these promises over and over again. As he was an eyewitness of the full manifestation of… More
