May 9 2012 Thoughts from the Study - 1 Cor 9:19-27 - All Things to All Men

Jerrod Rumley

What does it mean to surrender our rights and become "all things to all men"? Paul brings clarity to our rights and freedoms in how we interact with a lost world, and he pushes believers to remember the race we are in and why we run in it the first place. This life is not about us and we need to set… More

May 3 2012 Serving as a Lifestyle, Not an Event

PJ Lewis

My wife Sheri and I moved here the fall of last year, so this is my first experience with Serve Dei at the Well. As a Campus Pastor, I was able to see the Serve Dei packet a few days before they went out at services at North AM. Before I went and told someone they misspelled "Serve Day" on the cover… More

Brad Bell

Paul gives a personal example of how he sets aside his rights for the sake of greater influence to those around him. He demonstrates the importance of considering others as more important than ourselves and of setting our sights on the movement of the gospel and not our own personal comfort. More

Apr 25 2012 Thoughts from the Study - 1 Cor 8 - Letting Love Outweigh My Rights

PJ Lewis

Our relationship with God is based on love, and how we display this love to others matters. We know we have freedom in Christ, but our love for Him and others needs to trump this knowledge. Sometimes we need to lay down our rights to help others in their relationships with Christ. Whether we want to… More

Apr 24 2012 Discipleship

Jason Shields

Discipleship. That “thing” Christ told us all to do after He came back from the dead. Most Christians respond to Discipleship like Micah (the 3-year old boy my wife babysits) responds to cake. He likes cake, he knows cake is good, but he has no clue how cake comes to his plate or even what it is… More

Apr 19 2012 Humble Pie

Sarah Welles

Lately I’ve been eating a lot of “humble pie.” I haven’t been asking for any, nor wanting seconds or thirds, yet I’ve been finding myself being forced to eat it! Whether it is through hard conversations, getting my feelings hurt, or someone calling me out, I’ve seen more of my flesh lately than I… More
