God is Gracious

Introduction We have been in a series called “God Is…” where we have looked at a lot of different verses in the Bible that help us to better understand the various aspects of God’s character. Our goal is to make sure we see God, not as we want him to be, or maybe as we have always thought him to be, but as he truly is. We only know and understand God because he has chosen to reveal himself to…

Unexpected: What You Never Saw Coming

Have you ever been around someone who has told you a story more than once. In fact, it might be that you have heard it so often that you could tell the story yourself! If the story was meant to be funny, you probably don’t laugh after you’ve heard it the first time. And if the story is moving, you might even become a little numb to the emotion of it by the third or fourth time you hear it.…

God is Jealous

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction  I’m so excited to continue our series describing who God is.  Long before we began this series, when we were only in the planning stages — I was fired up to teach you all about this character trait of God.    And the reason I wanted to teach on this topic is because it’s a hard pill for many of us to swallow.  It’s one of those character…

God is Holy

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction We are in the middle of a series of messages where we are trying to fill in the the blank, “God is                 .” Our goal is to deepen our understanding of who God is. When we deepen our understanding of who God is, this results in a response. We cannot come face to face with God and just walk away from it. God is not some benign force…

God is Sovereign

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction Have you ever stopped to think about why you are where you are and what brought that about? Was it dumb luck or was God involved somehow? To be up front, I can tell you that as an eight year old boy growing up in southwest Arkansas, I never, not once, had the thought, “You know, when I’m 40, I’d like to be pastoring a church in Iowa.”…

God is Infinite

New Series called God Is Today it is my pleasure to kick off a new message series we’re calling “God Is.”  Now I know, some of you might already be feeling a little disappointed going from such a practical series as GetFit to one you expect to be so dry and boring.   But I promise this series won’t be dry and disconnected from the life you are living…

Get Fit Recap I’m so glad to have the privilege of wrapping up this series we’re calling GetFit today.  And I’m not glad because I’m tired of it, but because it’s been such a helpful series for so many of you.   Here is a brief recap of the ways we want to help you GetFit in 2016.  We kicked off this series the first Sunday of January talking about being BodyFit. …

SpiritFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. GetFit Series Over the last four weeks we’ve been talking about how we can get fit in multiple areas of our lives. We’ve talked about being healthier, so that we can serve God and others and continue the work that Jesus started, the work of bringing God’s kingdom to earth. Our physical health impacts that. We’ve talked about our relational health: making sure our relationships are where they need…

MentalFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction Since the beginning of the new year, we have been talking about something that is usually on everyone’s mind when a new year begins — how to get fit. We have talked about the obvious things, the things people aren’t usually afraid to talk about, some that often we even joke about. We began with discussing how to become BodyFit. The important part isn’t the number on the scale or…

EmotionFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Emotional Immaturity Emotional health is often the most neglected or under-valued kind of health. We put physical health on a pedestal because we’ll die without it; however, we die internally without emotional health. We can’t have healthy relationships and we can’t have healthy spirituality without it.  It’s impossible to be relationally and spiritually mature without emotional maturity. So in what ways do we neglect our emotional health? Emotional UNHEALTH, in it’s extremes,…

RelationFit

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction We are in a series we call “GetFit – Being Whole and Holy in the New Year.” Statistics show that after the first week, already 25% of you would have given up or failed. So, way to go, quitters!  Just kidding. Even though many of us, me included, are not resolution makers, for many of us, the new year represents a fresh start, a chance to start over, to…

BodyFit

Sermon Podcast Audio  Your browser does not support the audio element. Whole and Holy in the New Year  I love New Year’s celebrations, not for the drunken debauchery or for trying and failing to stay up until midnight, but because it gives me the opportunity to consider what I want to change going into the new year.  That and New Year’s Eve is my anniversary, so that’s special too!  I’m sure I’m not the only one who uses the new year…
