Growing in Friendship

To be wise is to understand how to choose friends, cultivate your friendships and understand where the power of friendship comes from. In fact, you won’t live a wise life and you won’t make it in life if you’re not skilled in choosing, seeing and cultivating friendships. Solomon, in Proverbs, even goes so far to […]

Being Set Apart By The King

In Matthew 28:16-20, we come to the end of a journey with Jesus – birth, life, death, burial and resurrection. These five verses are called the Great Commission. What does it mean to be great? Great seems to be a shallow word because it’s used so regularly. Great game, great food, great wedding, great product. […]

Jesus Is Our Great High Priest

Jesus is our great high priest who offers Himself for our atonement, which means He steps in on our behalf and pays the penalty and consequence for our sin. As our great high priest we 1) hold fast our confession of Jesus as the prophet, priest and king and 2) we draw near to Him. […]

Don’t Trust In Yourself

Prayer is a window into our soul → prayer lays bare the human heart and Jesus time-and-time-again tells us He’s concerned with the heart. This parable tells us many things – one undeniable truth is that “God knows the difference between a parade of righteousness and the intention of the heart.” -James Edwards Scripture: Luke […]

Prayer Points: December

What is prayer? My bride and I routinely remind our kids that prayer (among many things) is simply having a conversation with God. So how do we have a conversation with God? May I recommend to you talking to God using His Word? Try praying through Psalm 24 – let me give you several prompts. […]

The Great Reversal

The main point of this passage → It’s not that poor people go to heaven while rich people go to hell. The point is that people who live, love and trust in the things of this world will find that heaven is not their destiny, while those who live, love and trust in heavenly things, […]

From Pink Slip to Promotion

Far too many people only plan and prepare for their immediate future rather than where they will spend eternity. Here in Luke 16, Jesus presses home the truth that we need to plan and prepare for the future not just the here and now.

Keep Your Eyes On The Road

We continue in our series, The Power of Stories, as Pastor Nate Millican takes us through Luke 15:11-32. Listen to hear how, as believers, we are to not check out, but to be intrigued and in awe of the amazing, redemptive love God has for us and all lost souls, and to keep our eyes […]

Leading Your Family and Remembering the Lost

It doesn’t matter your season of life to feel the truth of the statement “life is busy.” At times that busyness clouds my perception of truths or pursuits that really matter. One such truth is the reality of lostness around the world. One such pursuit is getting the good news of Jesus to people around […]

Don’t Take the Best Seat in the House

Jesus heals a man whose physical ailment is symptomatic of the religious leader’s spiritual ailment and he does so to confront the thinking the religious leader’s had regarding who God’s Kingdom belonged to. Jesus wants them to know that it belongs to the King and to whomever He gives admittance to. And the King gives […]
