Gospel of John
Genuine Worship & Offense
Part 7 • March 31, 2019 • Mark Ivey
Worship is much more than a song (that is an expression of worship). It is a way of life to live and love others the best of our ability at all times. Living free of offense and choosing to quickly forgive and pursue connection with those we'd rather ignore, is one way we develop genuine worship within our hearts.
The Holy Spirit
Part 5 • March 17, 2019 • Mark Ivey
The Holy Spirit is simply a part of God's presence that lives within a believer. Holy Spirit helps us walk through life, love well, and grow maturely as we draw nearer to God's heart, and positively impact the world around us Heaven is established on earth.
Part 4 • March 3, 2019 • Mark Ivey
Jesus wasn't a casual timid person who shied away from declaring truth. He gave tremendous grace and truth from the position of love in all He did and said. His love is not only measured through His forgiveness, but also through His discipline in showing us how to live as He lived. When He is tough on the disciples, they do not consider it offensive because they were following from a position of love for God. The Pharisees took what Jesus said as offensive, because their hearts were far from God. When we follow Jesus out of love, His truth grows us more into His likeness.
Are You Willing?
Part 3 • February 24, 2019 • Mark Ivey
In this story, Jesus heals a man at the pool of Bethesda. It's important to pay close attention to why Jesus did not acknowledge the pool that was known to have healing waters. In everything we do, following Jesus and what He says is how His Kingdom is made known in the earth.
Married to God
Part 2 • February 17, 2019 • Mark Ivey
Without understanding God's word, it can sound kind of weird to "be married to Christ." Marriage is the union and partnership of two people who choose to give their hearts and trust to one another for the rest of their life. In the same way, believers are the bride of Christ and we are to grow our trust and commitment to Him: this is for our benefit and the world we live in. In this message, Mark Ivey shares how this picture of marriage is relevant and crucial to believers.
The Light of Christ
Part 1 • February 10, 2019 • Lj Johnson
In this message Lj Johnson begins our series "The Gospel of John." Before all of mankind, there was light. That light is God Himself, and it's important we as believers understand God is light in every place of our life. God takes our hearts out of darkness, and into fellowship with Him.
