Heart Check Volume 2
Why Are You Persecuting Me?
September 27, 2020 • Pastor Paul Herriott
This message we'll be hearing from Pastor Paul and the College Ministry. We will be picking our Questions of Jesus series up for one last sermon in honor of the college students, and focusing on the pivotal question asked of Saul, at a pivotal moment, in his pivotal life. Saul, known now by many as Paul, was asked by Jesus as to why he was 'persecuting him?' This question deserves our attention as it brings to the forefront the unique union between Christ and his people, the church. Please read Acts 9:3-5 for this message
Lord Is It Time To Restore Our Kingdom?
August 2, 2020 • Dr. Agam Iheanyi-Igwe
Last sermon we got to hear from Pastor Matt about the rich young man who was challenged by Jesus, asking him the question, "Why do you ask me about what is good?" This sermon we'll be hearing from a special quest speaker, Dr. Agam Iheanyi-Igwe. Dr. Agam is the Associate Dean of Bible and World Christianity at Bushnell University, speaking about the question the disciples asked the Lord before he ascended into heaven: "Lord, is it time to restore our kingdom?" Read Acts 1:1-9 for this message
Why Do You Ask Me About What Is Good?
July 26, 2020 • Pastor Matt Erdmann
Last sermon we had an awesome opportunity to be challenged by Pastor Danielle, from Matthew 26:6-13. Danielle talked about the value of "costly love" and asked a fantastic question... "Am I willing to love Jesus with what is most valuable to me?" This sermon we get the chance to look at a question Jesus asked in response to a question that was asked of him. A young man asked... "What good deed must I do to have eternal life?" And Jesus responds with... "Why ask me about what is good?" Jesus was seeking to define terms, create clarity, and help this guy realize what really matters most in the big scheme of life. Check out Matthew 19:16-30 and let's discover together the answer to this man's question and find out what "good" is all about.
Why Do You Trouble The Woman?
July 19, 2020 • Pastor Danielle Henry
Last message, Dan talked to us about Jesus' heart question to Martha, "Do you believe this?" This message, we are continuing our study of the heart searching questions of Jesus by looking at a moment from Martha's sister, Mary, and how she acted on her belief in Jesus. In the midst of a dinner, Mary expressed her love and worship of Jesus with an act of devotion that was criticized by the disciples. Jesus asks them a heart searching question about their response. Mary's example, the response of the disciples, and Jesus' words hold lessons and truths for all of us. Read Matthew 26:6-13 to get ready for this sermon.
Do You Believe This?
July 12, 2020 • Pastor Dan Collins
Last sermon we looked at Martha's question to Jesus, "Lord, don't you care?" Jesus addressed worry as a symptom and rest that leads to worship. This week we come to part two of the story with Jesus and Martha. Jesus gets right at the heart with a single question "Do you believe this?" We see Jesus as human and divine, filled with love and life-giving power. We also see Jesus break down and weep. Pretty significant. Read John 11:17-37 for this sermon.
Lord, Don't You Care?
July 5, 2020 • Pastor Dan Collins
This sermon, we’ll look at a question that Martha actually asked to Jesus: Lord, don’t you care??? Martha’s question is one many of us have probably wondered at different points in life. God, do you care? Some of us may even be wondering this right now. As applicable as Martha’s question is, Jesus’ response is absolutely stunning. Jesus goes right to the heart and addresses the real issue — worry. In this passage, we’ll see how Jesus disarms worry and teaches us how to live a life free from worry because of the confidence we have in him. Read Luke 10:38-42
Who Do You Say I Am?
June 28, 2020 • Pastor Ben Cross
Last sermon, we finished our series on the book of Philippians. As we get into Summer, we’ll continue a series we began last summer on the heart searching questions of Jesus. Jesus is a master teacher and communicator, and some of his most personal and convicting lessons came from the direct questions he asked. We’re going to start this sermon with a question Jesus asked his disciples: Who do you say I am? As we’ll see this message, how you and I answer that question has a huge impact on the way we live. Read Matthew 16:13-17 for this message
