Not Our Home

Live (Part 3)

Steward God’s Grace • March 18, 2018 • Michael McCracken

We have been given the gift of contribution.

Live (Part 2)

The End Of All Things • March 11, 2018 • Michael McCracken

If the end is near there has never been a greater need for our sobered presence in this life.

Live (Part 1)

Arm Yourselves • March 4, 2018 • Michael McCracken

Arm yourselves for the rest of your time here.

Love (Part 4)

The Exchange • February 25, 2018 • Jon Paul Dennison

The great exchange happened when righteousness was traded for unrighteousness. Jesus giving us His perfect life in exchange for our sin is the worst and best trade of all time.

Love (Part 3)

Suffering • February 18, 2018 • Michael McCracken

In order to glorify God by loving the life that He has given us we must have a category for suffering.

Love (Part 2)

Selflessness • February 11, 2018 • Michael McCracken

The good life is a selfless life.

Love (Part 1)

Husbands / Wives • February 4, 2018 • Michael McCracken

Everything in the Christian life as “elect exiles” comes down to trust in the Lord. Do we believe that Jesus is enough? Marriage is no exception.

Slaves (Part 3)

Free To Suffer • December 3, 2017 • Michael McCracken

How the gospel makes us free in suffering.

Slaves (Part 2)

The Paradoxical Kingdom • November 26, 2017 • Kyle Talbott

The unjust suffering of God’s people when endured through a heart of fear and worship of God is divine, not human in origin. Therefore, the church's high calling is to follow her Lord wherever He may take her no matter the cost!

Slaves (Part 1)

Actual Freedom • November 19, 2017 • Michael McCracken

In this sermon we will take a look at what Peter says is actual freedom and what it takes to obtain such freedom.

Set Apart (Part 6)

1 Peter 2:13-15 • November 12, 2017 • Michael McCracken

Subjection or submission is a part of life not because sin exists, but because God exists. This falls right in line with the gospel and also the very nature of God, Himself.

Set Apart (Part 5)

1 Peter 2:9-12 • November 5, 2017 • Michael McCracken

Not only were we saved from something, but we were saved for something.

Set Apart (Part 4)

1 Peter 2:4-8 • September 24, 2017 • Michael McCracken

Holiness is played out in community. What’s more is that in Christ we are priests, which could potentially change everything we ever knew about “church”.

Set Apart (Part 3)

1 Peter 1:22-2:3 • September 17, 2017 • Michael McCracken

The pursuit of holiness will lead to true community. Study Questions: 1. What things stuck out to you from this text? Is there anything in this text that challenges you? 2. When was the last time someone proclaimed the truth of the gospel to you in order to combat a lie that you were believing and living from? If it has been a while why do you think this is so? 3. Do you love people or do you need people to love you?

Set Apart (Part 2)

1 Peter 1:14-21 • September 10, 2017 • Michael McCracken

Peter helps us see the practical context for holiness. As elect exiles we live holy (set apart) lives empowered by the gospel to display the glory of God’s grace to the world around us. Study Questions: 1. What things stuck out to you from this text? Is there anything in this text that challenges you? 2. What does holiness look like in your life right now? Would the world describe you as set a part? Why or why not? 3. Do you struggle to view God as Father…to believe the He loves you and is pleased by your presence? Is it possible that you are putting your faith and hope in your holy living rather than in God? How could the gospel change your view of God? 4. Read and meditate on 2 Corinthians 6:1-13. What would it look like for you to “not receive the grace of God in vain”?
