Christ calls us to live in community with others … but because of our i-world culture we live in isolation hiding behind a manufactured façade. We are to see people as fully human and love them as such.

One of the most profound parts of the Word of God is that the struggles people experienced are not hidden. The story of Thomas is a clear picture that Jesus understands our doubts and actually shows the most affection and affirmation when people are struggling or at their worst. Being transparent and honest is taught in the word and should be practiced in the community of believers.

God called Moses to lay-down what had become his identity and security. When he let go of the staff it became the medium to display God’s power; it became God’s instrument. But first, he had to let it go. The challenge is to look beyond our own self-sufficiency and learn utter dependence upon God.

If we are not ready to die to ourselves, we are not ready to really live. Jesus’ death on the cross opened the door for the Holy Spirit to work in our hearts. If we ask, the Lord live in and through us.

Our primary calling is to acknowledge God as Father and Jesus Christ as savior. Our secondary calling is uniquely designed and found where your deep gladness and the worlds deep hunger meets. Discovery of the secondary calling comes through the Word, prayer, practical assessment, and counsel from others.

The talents parable reveals a marked difference between the recipients of the five and two talents from the servant that only received one talent. The difference is seen in the focus, drive and passion apparent in the ones that received more, and a lack of passion and priority in the life of the servant that received only one. Christianity is not about being good, it is about aligning our passions and priorities and following His plan for our lives.

God calls us to be goers or senders in regard to the mission field. A goer has the promise of His presence, and ability is not the important element … availability is what matters. A sender prays, gives, and mobilizes others for action.

The creed of faith must be rooted in the truth that God is in control of our lives and He can be trusted. He wants us to be tenacious in pursuing excellence through His calling on our lives, but there are times when we have to depend upon Him to lift us over obstacles to achieve these God shaped plans.

We can trust the process of our lives as they unfold even when things do not seem to be turning out the way we think they should. We can trust the process, because we can trust the person – Jesus Christ – who is the orchestrator of the process.

The world creates three false identities manifested through pleasure and possessions, performance, and pain. Being children of God is our true identity as He blesses us with every spiritual blessing, calls us His beloved, and is well pleased in us. Our heavenly Father wants us to stand beneath the waterfall of His love and receive our identity and purpose in Him. He calls us out from the distractions of the world, helps us understand who we really are in Him, and prepares us for service to Him.

The cross defines the Christian message, and has in it the present power of that past event. It is in the death and resurrection of Jesus that we find the spiritual power to live for Him. The cross of Jesus calls us not to die – but to live for Him. The cross, by its very nature, demands from us a decision. It reminds us that God loves us and His grace is sufficient.

Our greatest need is not to find an answer, but to take and eat what life brings knowing that the miracle isn’t in the gift, but the One who gives it. Faith is not believing all the right answers, it is committing to wrestle with the right questions for the rest of our lives.

There are no moral requirements to receive divine grace and ordinary places are often sacred spaces. One of the requirements for a fresh encounter with God is mere openness. The God who created us is better than the God we’ve created.

Our responsibility as people created in God’s image is not just to fill up this world with truth and goodness, but also to fill it with beauty. Beauty is the mark of true worship, is the foundation of social justice, and is an indispensable quality that gives hope. When we cultivate beauty we give a glimpse to the world of that which is yet to come.

A Christian response to our culture is typically an Exodus model or Exile model both predicated on fear and self-preservation. A different model of engagement is an Incarnational model as seen in Jesus’ life and rooted in genuine concern for others.. Incarnational living is a choice, based on service of others, and seeks the flourishing of the world … not just getting by.

The issue of racialization affects the church. “All too often the church holds up a mirror reflecting back the society around it, rather than a window revealing a different way.” (Yancy, 1987) One of the ways we punch holes in the walls that divide us is by creating windows in these walls through conversation with each other. A group of ethnically diverse students modeled a conversation about this topic around the table with a goal of discovering differences and commonalities.

The story of Hagar’s plight reminds us that He knows our name … even when the world may try to objectify us in order to justify behavior. We serve a God that sees and a God that hears. As followers of Christ, we must guard against this behavior and seek to replicate our heavenly Father’s love and compassion for each individual person He brings along our path. He knows our name and the people we cross paths with have a name, too.

An accurate translation of the great commission is to make disciples “as you go.” With the time God has given us on earth, we are challenged to make the most of every moment. Is our avocation following Jesus and making disciples as we go about our daily lives?

We are called to live in relationship with everyone as modeled by Jesus Christ …. Creating grace-filled safe places where God’s spirit can redeem and restore. The church must balance grace and truth in both the attitudes and behavior toward all sin. The current sexual ethic has been more about justification and validation rather than being aligned with holiness and finding our identity in Christ.

A poignant testimony of the journey from a gay and drug filled lifestyle back to God; and the powerful testimony of a mother’s faithfulness to intercede for her lost son. Unconditional love is not the same as unconditional approval. The opposite of a homosexual life style is not a heterosexual one … it is one of holiness.

The Kingdom of God is not a place … it is a reign rather than an realm. Kingdom living begins by putting first things first, and is not in step with our current culture in any way. Being like Jesus is at the foundation of Kingdom living.
