Battle Belongs to the Lord
1 Corinthians 2 : 1 - 5
The Kingdom of God is worth fighting for, but the ways of war are rooted in humility, love, and ultimately sacrifice. It’s through the power of Jesus Christ and His Crucifixion and Resurrection that we, in Him, are victorious over the enemy, our sin, and this world!
Ezekiel 37 : 1 - 14
Ezekiel’s vision shares the heart of God’s mission; which is to make people who were dead, alive in Christ. Our call as a Church it to fulfill the mission of God, breathing life into their dry bones and bring them back to Garden Living. This is what Kingdom movement is all about and what we dedicate our lives and this dirt to today!
John 3 : 1 - 21
What does it mean to be born again and why would it matter? Jesus spells this out for a curious pharisee named Nicodemus in the middle of the night. Faith in Jesus alone is the means by which we are born again, our lives are made new, to the end that we can now stand before God unashamed. This is the reason Jesus came to this world and the good news we bring to others as we seek to live as proof.
March 17 | TESTify
Acts 27 : 39 – 28 : 16 As believers we are called to TESTify—to literally be the living proof of a loving God. Our witness and lives serve as evidence and often is the most powerful in the trying times of our lives. God wastes nothing, and the clinging to Christ in the pain produces Kingdom Movement.
March 10 | God Is Good All The Time
Acts 27 : 1 - 38
Our Aim: To see Jesus—high and lifted up because I am convinced when we do—we find hope; which is not available in his creation but from Him as creator. Circumstances are tough, but God is good #allthetime and is with us in them so that others might see Him in us.
March 3 | A Call For All
Discipleship is a call for all who follow Jesus. Matthew 28 : 18 - 20 clearly lays this out as the mission of the people of God. When it comes to discipling the next generation, it is wise to approach discipleship in a developmentally appropriate way. Matthew 22 : 34 - 40 shows us what the content of that discipleship is meant to be, teaching people to love God and love their neighbor. Our role is to make disciples, by being the living proof of our loving God and asking the question, "What is the most loving thing to do?" as a way of guiding our actions and affections.
Feb 24 | God is Good!

Feb 17 | Embracing Inevitable Tensions

God wastes nothing and is using all things for His Glory and Our good. Luke shows us this in the life and (pre) death of Paul; who although is not perfect, God’s will is.
Feb 10 | Gospel Confidence
Acts 24 : 1 - 27
How wide and deep is our confidence in the gospel of Jesus Christ?
Feb 3 | Aroma of Christ

Paul's desire in life and death is to be a fragrant aroma of Christ. This is seen in his journey of suffering to, and throughout his time in Jerusalem; for the Glory of God.
Jan 20 | Gospel Dream for EDH
Acts 19 : 1 - 41
The power of Jesus is on display in Ephesus from handkerchiefs to healings. The entire region of Asia hears the Gospel - this is our dream and prayer for EDH and every city around.
Jan 13 | Guardians of the Galaxy
Acts 18 : 1 - 23
As Christians, we’ve been called as a team, to combat the evil of this world and literally bring heaven to earth. God gives and uses each of our strengths and our weaknesses to form this beautiful collective of desperate & dependent ‘guardians of the galaxy’ for His Glory and the world’s good.
Jan 6 | Next play
Acts 17 : 16 - 34
January is the beginning of our “Next play”. If we can share in Paul’s mentality by praying, watching & stepping into 2019 prepared and ready to proclaim, then Kingdom movement will advance and darkness will be destroyed!
Gospel-Fuel for 2019
Acts 17 : 1 - 15
When Paul and Silas proclaim the Gospel of Jesus (His life, death and resurrection) in Thessalonica, the religiously-sure Jews become ticked-off and bring persecution, while many Gentiles (outsiders) are persuaded by the teaching. The relentless persecution pushes them to Berea where curious Jews receive the Gospel with eagerness.
Christmas Eve at Vintage Grace
Colossians 4 : 2 - 6
As Paul wraps up his letter, he leaves the disciples with specific tools to help them express their faith so that the world would experience the JOY of walking with Jesus.
Better than Sweaters
As the object of our HOPE, Jesus puts us in the context of #communitas to not only protect hope, but to also provide more of it in our every day living. We do this as a team, taking off the things that distract us from Him and putting on the things that are of Him.
