Socioeconomic Diversity


Date: Mar 17, 2019

Speaker: Jaron Scott

Because God, who is rich, became poor in order to save us, the church should be full of people from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Barriers of income, class, and social status that divide people outside the church have been broken down in Christ. Jaron gives us some practical tips for things we can do to help our relationships reflect this reality.

Ephesians 3:17, Malachi 4:5-6

God is pursuing people from every generation, ethnic group, and social class. He's saving people who commit every kind of sin.

In today's talk, Tim Chambers and Jaron Scott help us understand God's heart for a multi-generational church and offer some tips for how people from different generations can build relationships that cross those boundaries.

Lead Us Not Into Temptation


Date: Feb 24, 2019

Speaker: Tim Chambers

Matthew 6:13

Jesus taught his disciples to pray that we would not be led into temptation but would be delivered from the evil one. That probably involves agreeing with God on the front end about the nature of sin and our own vulnerability to it. Because he was tempted but never sinned, Jesus knows how to resist temptation. He's sympathetic to our battle, qualified to help us, and promises a way of escape from every temptation we encounter.

Forgiveness


Date: Feb 17, 2019

Speaker: Tim Chambers

Matthew 6:12

Jesus says that when we pray, we should ask God to forgive our sins. Because we sin often, we’ll need to ask often. Rather than leading us into increasingly deeper introspection, though, Jesus wants to lead us into a deeper awareness of his grace and mercy toward us. Recognizing the size of our debt and the fullness of our pardon will help us pray the second part of this prayer, forgiving those who’ve also sinned against us.

Daily Bread


Date: Feb 10, 2019

Speaker: Jaron Scott

Matthew 6:11

In the middle of the prayer Jesus taught his disciples, he includes a request for daily provision. This request reminds us that we are dependent on God for everything, which frees us from the stress of self-sufficiency. God intends to meet all our needs, physical and spiritual, and this prayer acknowledges him as the one who knows our needs and is able to meet them.

Hallowed, Kingdom, Will


Date: Feb 3, 2019

Speaker: Tim Chambers

Matthew 6:9-10

We learn some of what it means to ask for God’s name to be hallowed. And some of what it means to pray for his kingdom to come and for his will to be done on earth as in heaven. We see that these petitions are as personal as the recesses of each individual heart and as broad as the created universe – stated simply or used headings under which many other prayers are offered.
