Often we find ourselves serving others or wanting to help, but under the caveat that if that help is first asked for. But what about if the shoe is on the other foot and you are the one approached by someone wanting to help or serve you? How do you normally react? Do turn it down right away and say maybe next time or do we accept the help? Why is it important to know what our normal response would be? Listen as preaching team member Kim shares her insight into how God calls us to respond and how we should go forth and ask how we can help.

The disciples are living in their nightmare. Jesus has been dead for 3 days. Verse 19 says that it is evening, it is dark, and they are huddled together, in secret, behind locked doors, afraid - afraid because the people who hold all the power in their city are hunting them down. Those evil people just brutalized Jesus, tortured him, mocked him, and crucified him. So what happens next?

The suffering [we] suffer is an important discussion to have because of the unique water we swim in as Americans. We are born and raised in comfortable idolatry. We have no idea how unique and obsessed we are with getting rid of pain and living in comfort. We actually believe this notion that I should be able to find a life that does not have any kind of suffering. There is nothing inherently wrong with not wanting to live a life of suffering - it is natural to desire a life with comfort. But there is a type of suffering that we are called to as Christians if we are to stay in the vine. Listen as Pastor Chris shares what it means to purposefully reject a life of comfortable idolatry and why we are called to live this way.
