This week Mike wraps up our Triumph series by challenging us with Peter’s words regarding suffering. In the midst of difficult seasons, can we maintain the same attitude as Christ? Can we rejoice through our struggles, and ultimately what does God expect us to do in light of our suffering?
What does it look like for us to submit to our governing authorities? Are we supposed to submit if we don’t agree with what we are being asked to do? Join us in week 4 of our series Triumph as we explore what the apostle Peter has to say regarding these important questions.
We believe the church is our home away from home. As long as we are here, there are certain attributes we need to maintain to help people find and follow Jesus. Listen to week 3 of Triumph to discover what they are.
When times get tough, Peter’s words remind us to be who God calls us to be. Watch this week as Mike walks us through what that looks like and helps us understand how we can reflect God in our lives, even though the most difficult seasons.
Leaning into God during seasons of suffering will change our perspective. Suffering shouldn’t paralyze us; it should mobilize us to become bearers of hope, calling people to experience the promises of Jesus, and calling people to experience life in Jesus!
Zacchaeus went looking for more only to find that what he really wanted was his all along. You and I have been looking for more, but the truth is what we really want is in the arms of God who loves us and pursued us and offers us grace, acceptance, forgiveness, and life.
You and I have parts of our lives that are shameful to us. Whether or not we should be ashamed isn’t the point, we feel the shame, and so we hide. Yet freedom is found when we come out of hiding long enough to hear Jesus say “You are forgiven. I Love you. Be at peace.” Watch this week as Mike helps us understand Jesus’ heart for us.
The tendency to blame others for our experience dates back to the Garden of Eden. One of the primary reasons we blame is the hope that freedom will come with it. Yet freedom isn’t found in blaming others, freedom is found in taking ownership for what you do with what’s been done to you. Watch this week to get a better understanding of what it looks like to find healing and to move forward free from blame.
So much of life is what happens beneath the surface. For many of us, our past and pain shapes our present reality and leaves us walking through life longing for freedom. Jesus’ wilderness experience shows us that the way toward true freedom is through him.
When we come to the father He immediately runs toward us, forgives us, and celebrates us!
