continual next steps with Jesus
April 10, 2022 • Pastor Jack Schull • John 6:26–69
Each one of our lives are guided by the choices and decisions we make. Tonight we peer into a conversation Jesus has with his earliest of followers where he’s asking them to choose him. We will learn a good question that can really help us, when we’re tempted to hit the unfollow button or shrink back as things get challenging following Jesus. Remember: salvation is free, it costs you nothing. It did cost Jesus everything. A life of following after Jesus will have costs to it. But not following Jesus, might just cost you everything.
Leverage Your Life
April 3, 2022 • Pastor Jack Schull • Mark 10:32–45
As we follow Jesus, we’re invited to lead like Jesus. So tonight we’re going to look at a passage where Jesus actually gives us his secret to great leadership. See Mark 10:32-45. And as we prepare for Easter, we're going to see how Jesus walks out the way he’s calling us to walk in. We're to leverage our lives for others.
Whose Will Be Done
March 27, 2022 • Pastor Lyle Thompson
There are moments in following Jesus were our personal agenda and God’s agenda will come into direct conflict with each other. How we respond in those moments will reveal much about us. What must we do then to get ourselves to the place where it’s no longer “My will be done,” but where we can honestly say, “Thy will be done!”?
Count The Cost
March 20, 2022 • Pastor Jack Schull • Mark 8:27–38
Eventually, following Jesus is going to cost you something. And you will be glad it did. Deny yourself now or lose yourself later. All relationships have a cost to them, but good ones, also have a reward. Following where Jesus leads is always for our best, but it may not be the easiest.
March 13, 2022 • Pastor Jack Schull • John 13:34–35, Colossians 3:12–14
What should a follower of Jesus wear? That may seem strange, but there’s always something that distinguishes people who are following after someone — there’s a look that identifies them…see sports fans attire. Well, Jesus tells us clearly what should distinguish us as his followers and the Apostle Paul expands it and tells us to cloth ourselves always in LOVE.
How Do I Become a Fearless Follower of Jesus?
March 6, 2022 • Pastor Lyle Thompson
Have you ever wondered what was the payoff to following Jesus? Is it becoming a better person? Is it going to Heaven? Is it a pain-free, problem-free life? When you follow Jesus you will be a better person, and you will go to Heaven! But your life will certainly have pain and problems, and that’s ok. Because the payoff in following Jesus is so much better — it’s a faith so confident in God that it overcomes any fear.
February 27, 2022 • Pastor Jack Schull • Luke 5:1–11
Today we examine the early story of Jesus calling his first followers and how they met that moment and how Jesus invited them each to trust him with their next step. Each one of us will find ourselves at one of 4 phases in this FOLLOW process Jesus is inviting us into. Each phase begins with a single next step. Step forward friend.
Next Steps with Jesus
February 20, 2022 • Pastor Jack Schull • Matthew 9:9–13
The best question we must ask ourselves is: am I following Jesus? — not what do I know, not how well do I pray, not how consistently do I attend church, not how much scripture I know, not even how obedient am I, not have I committed…but am I actively, intentionally engaged in the process of following Jesus? Jesus doesn’t invite us into following steps of religiosity, but into a relationship with him and discovery of our next steps with him.
