This is Jesus

To Roll the Stone Away

December 15, 2019 • Chris Rattay

Our instinct as people is to believe that any and all pain is bad. So when we cry out to Jesus to stop the pain, and he doesn’t, we get upset. Don’t. Instead, press into him and wait on His collateral beauty.

The Power of Jesus's Words

December 8, 2019 • Chris Rattay

We pray and things happen. The words of broken men, filled with sin, have power. But when Jesus speaks, he causes change. The same being who spoke the universe into life, speaks to men and causes a change in men’s hearts. And He doesn’t know any other way to speak. His words are not just wisdom for us to learn, but they are the power for us to be transformed.

This is Us

The church is Jesus’s warrior bride and Jesus has entrusted that heart to his believers, to us. But how should the term ‘warrior bride’ apply in a world where military terms relate differently than it did in the past?

Grace in Truth

November 24, 2019 • Chris Rattay

Sometimes it’s overwhelming how innate doing sinful acts can be. From joy to anger from generosity to greed, from peace to anxiety; the descent into sin is a path that is familiar. We often swing back and forth, trying to stay in the narrow road and then punishing ourselves for failure for returning to sin. But it doesn't have to be that way. Listen as Pastor Chris Rattay applies John 1:14-17 & John 8:2-11 and talks about how Jesus’s choice to not condemn us is more freeing than a life of self-restriction and self-judgment and how there can be grace found in truth.

When Jesus Gets Angry

November 17, 2019 • Chris Rattay

In the last two weeks, we’ve discovered the groom side of Jesus, the romantic, loving side of Jesus. This week we are talking about the side of Jesus that we do not often talk about - the revolutionary? Why is Jesus so angry? What is it that sets him off? Listen as Pastor Chris Rattay talks through Mark 11:15-18 and what makes this passage so important and how it can still apply today.

A Proposal at the Well

November 10, 2019 • Chris Rattay

Jesus has always chased us, has always wooed us, pursued us relentlessly to show us his grace upon grace. But where does it begin? What should we do to gain his love? Listen to Pastor Chris Rattay as he speaks about the woman at the well and what it means to be chosen, to be sanctified in His love and His purpose for you and the intimacy that comes with having a relationship with Him because this is Jesus.

Jesus Brings New Wine

November 3, 2019 • Chris Rattay

Jesus is the most tangible expression of God. He is our grace upon grace, especially when we run dry. Listen as Pastor Chris Rattay speaks about Jesus at the wedding of Cana and how He was invited to perform a miracle and how we can do the same.

They, Too, Know His Voice

October 27, 2019 • Chris Rattay

‘Matthew in his account uses earthquake. Luke uses the Greek for a hurricane. And all three versions of this event, Jesus was sleeping. Either way, [the disciples] thought they were done for.’ Listen as Pastor Chris Rattay talks about how Jesus calms the storm and his power that was so much more than even his disciples were willing to see.
