    December 15th, 2019  |  Season 21  |  22 mins 15 secs

    As we continue through the family tree of Jesus, we spend a morning looking at Ruth. She's an outsider -- a Moabitess -- who is honored amongst the women of Israel. We find out just how and why that comes to be.

    December 8th, 2019  |  Season 21  |  20 mins 2 secs
    advent, outsider to insider, past, rahab

    The past is impossible to escape. But the past can be redeemed. This week, as we continue through the family tree of Jesus, we look at how the outsider Rahab becomes an example of faith to all of us.

  • From Outsider to Insider, Tamar

    December 1st, 2019  |  Season 21  |  20 mins 53 secs
    advent, judah, outsider to insider, tamar

    Every name has a story, but those stories are easy to overlook. This Advent, we're reading through the lineage of Jesus and learning the stories of four names -- four outsiders -- who become insiders enough to make it into the family tree of God's Son. This week, we learn about Tamar to hear what God would teach us about outsiders and insiders.

    jesus, live for god, peter

    In our final week in our series, "God doesn't need you, but he wants you", we look at what it means to follow Christ with our life. Listen in as we follow alongside Peter during the arrest of Jesus and the moments after.

  • Pressure or Presence?

    November 10th, 2019  |  Season 19  |  20 mins 1 sec
    disciple, follow me, jesus, presence

    Why do Christians do "Christian" things? Jesus calls us to follow him, and many people have responded to the call. But do we respond to the person of Christ, or do we respond to a pressure of obligation, society, or culture? This week, we look at Peter and his responses to Jesus when he is first called by him.

  • Sitting Before the Lord

    November 3rd, 2019  |  Season 19  |  19 mins 16 secs
    1 chronicles, david, prayer

    Prayer is a foundational piece of the Christian faith. Why is it important? Why does it matter? This week, we look at David's prayer in 1 Chronicles 17 as a response to God's blessing upon him and his family.

  • God's House

    October 27th, 2019  |  Season 19  |  20 mins 41 secs
    blessing, david, house

    Do we need to build a house so that God can be present with us? David tries as much as a way to honor and bless God, but things don't go as he had planned. This week, we're in 1 Chronicles 17 with David and his desire to build a temple for God.

  • God Wants Humility, not Strength

    October 20th, 2019  |  Season 19  |  28 mins
    ark of god, david, humility, uzzah, worship

    A key ingredient of worship is the presence of God. But as a result, a second key ingredient to worship is how we respond to the presence of God. This week, we look at2 Samuel and David, Uzzah, and the bringing of the ark of God into Jerusalem.

    abraham, isaac, obedience, sacrifice, want

    Sacrifices are never easy. The "heroes" of the Bible didn't have an easy time with them, either. This week, we dive into what God requires of us and how he provides for us as we look at Abraham and the unimaginable request from God to give up his beloved son Isaac.

  • The Sin and the Sinner

    September 22nd, 2019  |  Season 19  |  19 mins 25 secs
