We are made to worship, and we all worship someone or something. Bob Dylan said, “You’re gonna have to serve somebody.” Tim Keller says: “All of our problems are problems of worship.” This series will help us understand what worship is and challenge us to examine the idols, objects that we are drawn to, and focus our worship on God Almighty as the only one worthy of our worship.
There is nothing more foundational or important than what you believe about the Bible. It’s common to hear people in our Western culture say something like, “There are many good things in the Bible, absolutely. But there are also things in the Bible that are really outdated and not true.” In this series, we will address why the Bible is trustworthy and the authority for our lives. The Bible is the story of God’s redemption through Jesus Christ and is given to us… for us… to know and follow Him.
After all that we have faced and are facing, we wonder, what do we do now? What are our next steps? How are we to live in light of all of the uncertainty in our world? Nehemiah lived in such times and was able to help bring about real change. He understood that the only way forward was by understanding God’s vision for our lives and having a destination that keeps us on track. He led others to catch hold of God’s plan for their lives and to follow it despite the challenging circumstances that came their way. We are called to do this today.
This series is based on Bob Goff’s book “Everybody Always.” This sermon series will follow along with five weeks as people go through the book and video series in their small groups. The focus of the sermons and teaching will be on how we must strive to Love like Christ as followers of Christ. With no boundaries or favoritism, as well as being willing to take risks when it comes to loving others even when it’s hard.
