May 13 Tethered to the Truth / 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

Shea Sumlin

The Thessalonians were starting to believe lies about the return of Christ, thinking maybe He had already come and they had missed it, or their suffering was the wrath that was prophesied to precede His coming. Paul corrects them, explaining that the world would see two major things happen before… More

May 6 Encouraged to Endure / 2 Thessalonians 1:1-12

Brad Bell

Paul’s heart comes through in this letter as he cares for the church at Thessalonica and encourages the people in the midst of their suffering. He speaks to their faith and love that is evidenced in them and that can help them endure the persecution they were experiencing, because they knew their… More

Apr 29 Created for Good Works / Ephesians 2:8-10

Josh Hawley

First God works in us. Then He works through us, because we were created for good works. Believers are in for a lifetime of servanthood, and Jesus was our ultimate example of that. More

Apr 22 The City of God Among the City of Man / Jeremiah 29:1-7

Shea Sumlin

The ancient church father, Augustine, once asked, "What does it mean for the city of God to dwell amidst the city of man?" For much of church history, we've been asking the same question. For us, the line between "in this world" and not "of this world" gets blurry sometimes. In this message, we'll… More

Apr 15 The Great Commandment / Matthew 22:36-40

Mike Slayden

Loving our neighbor is part of loving God. The two concepts are not mutually exclusive; they are inseparable. People can see our love of God by how we love others. Jesus modeled that for us by how He loved everyone, regardless of their stature, ethnicity, gender, ideology or theology, and we are… More

Apr 1 Eternity in Our Hearts / John 3:16-17

Brad Bell

We all have a void inside us, and we all look for a way to fill it. Some try to fill it with relationships, pornography, drugs or something else, but those things will never be enough. God put eternity in our hearts so we would come to realize the good news: He loved us so much that He sent His Son… More

Mar 25 Live in Light of Who You Are / 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28

Mike Slayden

In this text, the parenting side of Paul comes out as he calls the Thessalonians to live in light of who they are. He gives 17 imperative commands, and while on a bad day it can seem like moralism, what he’s trying to do is help them learn to walk in the Spirit as they allow the Spirit to transform… More

Mar 18 Hope in Death, Sobriety in Life / 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11

Shea Sumlin

Due to a lack of understanding in their eschatology, the Thessalonians were discouraged and possibly even immobilized in their faith as additional grief set in after the death of one or more of their members. Paul educates them on the mission of believers who are still on earth as well as the… More

Mar 11 God’s Will for Your Life / 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12

Josh Hawley

Many of us often ask, "What is God's will for my life?" This passage lays out God's will for us very clearly: that we become more like Christ in our attitudes and actions through a lifetime process of growth called sanctification. More
