Bible In A Year
What's Your Purpose?
December 26, 2021 • Todd Doxzon • Nehemiah 1—3
Have you been wondering what God's will is for your life? God's will for our lives is oftentimes connected to a problem that we are passionate about solving, as we use the gifts and talents the Lord has blessed us with. In What's Your Purpose? Pastor Todd Doxson teaches from Nehemiah 1-3. As we read about Nehemiah's life, we learn that God will also provide resources and will connect us with people who will participate in what we are doing so that we can fulfill his purpose for our lives. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Is God Even In This
December 19, 2021 • Esther
Have you been walking through a situation that has caused you to question whether or not God is with you? God has promised to never leave or forsake us, and he is always in the background, working things out for the good of those who are called according to his purposes. In Is God Even In This? Pastor Kap Chatfield teaches from the book of Esther and reminds us that God is with us and always desires to connect with us. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
December 12, 2021 • Todd Doxzon • Habakkuk 2
In 100K// Vision Sunday, Pastor Todd Doxzon shares a message that gives clarity about who Love Church is and why we exist; celebrates where we've been and what God has done; and gives clear direction about where we're going and what God is leading us into. Jesus came to change the world, and as we allow God's love to flow through us to the people around us, we can help bring about that change in our communities. Over this next week, we encourage you to pray and ask God in what ways he is inviting you to partner with what he desires to do through Love Church. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
December 5, 2021 • Todd Doxzon • Revelation 5
Have you been wondering why the world is so chaotic lately? Or perhaps you have said, "if God is good, why do bad things happen?" If you feel overwhelmed or are facing an impossible situation, the good news is that Jesus is the conquering king who has the power to transform your situation! In Worthy, Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from Revelation 5 and reminds us that Jesus has the power to redeem the earth. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
To The Church...
Ben Norvig • Revelation 2—3
In To The Church, Pastor Ben Norvig teaches from Revelation 2-3. As we read the letters that were written to the churches in these chapters, we are reminded that more than anything, Jesus desires to live in our hearts and love others through us. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
November 21, 2021 • Mike O'Connell • Psalm 138
Are you feeling surrounded by troubles in this season? At times it may be tempting to panic or have anxiety when we feel like God is not with us during our trials, but God has promised that he will never leave or forsake us. In Protected, Pastor Mike O'Connell teaches from Psalm 138 and reminds us that God is "Immanuel" which means "God with us". Though it may seem like our troubles are surrounding us, we must remember that we can surrender our fears and frustration to God, and trust that he will protect us and give us the victory. We pray you are encouraged by this message.
November 14, 2021 • Todd Doxzon • Ezekiel 34
We are all called to be leaders in our sphere of influence. And though leadership can be a challenge to navigate, as we stay connected to God through prayer and spending time in his Word, God will care for and lead his people through us. In Slackherds, Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from Ezekiel 34 and discusses the importance of selfless servant leadership. As we read God's message to his people through Ezekiel, we are reminded that Jesus will always go out of his way to find the lost, feed the lost, and fix the lost. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Protect The Rock!
November 8, 2021 • Todd Doxzon • Jude
As believers, it is important for us to have a vision of God's plans for our lives. It is equally important that we cling to our faith so that we don't "fumble the ball". In Protect The Rock, Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from the book of Jude and gives us four key things to consider as we allow God to be the quarterback in our lives. 1) God's grace is for mistakes and does not give us a license to sin. 2) The greatest leaders are also the greatest followers; leaders need to understand humility before they claim authority. 3) The people in our sphere of influence should be able to see the fruit of God's Spirit in our lives. 4) There is a lot of division in today's culture and it is important for us to be a healing balm, rather than allow our pride to continue to cause division. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
October 31, 2021 • Todd Doxzon • 1 John 4:7–21
What is your definition of love? The English language has one word for love with many definitions, which at times can make it difficult to know how to use it correctly. In Real Love, Pastor Todd Doxzon reminds us that Agape Love, the unconditional love of God for his children, is what real love is all about. As he teaches from 1 John 4:7-21, we learn that Agape Love is sacrificial and supernatural, and leaves no room for fear or hate. The more that we love God supremely and stay connected to him, the more that his love flows out of us to love others supernaturally. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Standing Against Conformity
Mike O'Connell • Daniel 1
Do you identify more like a thermometer or a thermostat? This is important to consider because when we are operating as thermometers, we ultimately are conforming to the world around us. But when we are operating as thermostats, through the power of Jesus we have the the authority to transform the world around us! In Standing Against Conformity, Pastor Mike O'Connell teaches from Daniel 1. As we learn about Daniel's life we see that, though King Nebuchadnezzar was trying to intimidate him to get him to conform, Daniel was determined not to compromise on his convictions. By standing against conformity, Daniel was given favor with the king and was able to move towards God's purpose for his life. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Watch Your Mouth
October 17, 2021 • James 3
Have you ever said something hurtful to someone you care about? In Watch Your Mouth, as Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from James 3 he challenges us to take inventory of what's coming out of our mouths. We have to Control our tongues so that they don't become Corrupt; and by keeping our Connection to God, he will help us to speak words that are encouraging. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
October 10, 2021 • Jeremiah 1
Have you ever felt intimidated by something God has called you to do? Or perhaps you're often fearful that you're going to mess things up. In I Can't, as Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from Jeremiah 1, he reminds us that we are going to have to step out of our comfort zones to answer God's call on our lives. We were created by a loving, sovereign God who pre-programmed each of us with a unique and specific purpose. Though we may feel fearful at times, we can't allow our fears to hinder us from moving forward because fear is a liar. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
October 3, 2021 • Todd Doxzon • Luke 10
In Distracted, Pastor Todd shares a principle from Luke 10 that changed everything in his own life and could do the same in yours. He gave us the key to remaining focused in a world full of distractions - dining with your Heavenly Dad daily in the scriptures. This is the one thing that is needed - one scripture at a time, one day at a time and everything begins changing. We hope you take this challenge to sit with Jesus before you serve Jesus. We pray you are encouraged by this message.
September 26, 2021 • Hosea 3
In Scandalous Love Pastor Mike O'Connell teaches from Hosea 3. As we read about Hosea's life, we get a picture of God's unconditional love for us, in the way that he instructs Hosea to love Gomer unconditionally despite the many times she turned her back on Hosea. Similarly so, we oftentimes run to other things instead of turning to Jesus to fulfill us. But God desires to have a relationship with us despite our brokenness, and the beautiful part about it is the fact that we don't have to earn his love, we just need to receive it. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Like A Bird In A Cage
September 19, 2021 • Ben Norvig • 2 Kings 18—19
In Like A Bird In A Cage Pastor Ben Norvig teaches from 2 Kings 18-19. As we read the story of Hezekiah, we can see that he was trapped and had no way to fix his circumstances. Yet despite how hopeless things seemed, Hezekiah had faith that God would help them, so he cried out to the Lord, asking for his help. Once he invited God into the situation, everything changed and God rescued the Israelites. What we learn from Hezekiah's example, is that the most important thing that we have is our faith: in what God has done; what God is doing; and what God will do. We pray you are encouraged by this message.
