You're Not the Boss of Me • July 7, 2019 • Andy Stanley
When we see someone we care about make bad decisions, we can either confront them about it or hope someone else does. Many times we opt for the latter, under the guise of being kind, not wanting to interfere, or waiting for them to ask for our input. But we should ask ourselves: are we really being kind, or are we letting fear, discomfort, or indifference be the boss of us?
You're Not the Boss of Me • June 30, 2019 • Andy Stanley
All of us walk through life with occasional fear. And it’s not always a bad thing. Fear is a byproduct of our ability to think about what might happen in the future, and it can protect us from harm. However, living with too much fear can cause us to be self-absorbed, distracted, and overly protective. But the good news is this: You don’t have to be afraid even when there’s something to be afraid of.
You're Not the Boss of Me • June 23, 2019 • Andy Stanley
When we feel anger, our emotions tell us it’s 100 percent someone else’s fault. But James, the brother of Jesus, has something different to say. When we take a step back and acknowledge what the problem really is, anger will no longer be the boss of us.
You're Not the Boss of Me • June 16, 2019 • Andy Stanley
Envy causes us to compare and compete with others in an unhealthy way. It brings arrogance when we’re winning and discouragement when we’re not. It robs us of contentment and causes us to feel like—as an ancient king put it—we’re chasing after the wind. But envy doesn’t have to be the boss.
You're Not the Boss of Me • June 9, 2019 • Andy Stanley
When it comes to guilt, many of us naturally lean in one of two ways: we wallow in it by reliving the past, or we deny it by making excuses. In either instance, guilt is causing us to be out of balance. The apostle Paul reminds us that, because of Jesus, guilt is not the boss of us.
Building Resilience in the Next Generation
Fight for It • May 19, 2019 • Clay Scroggins with Tim Elmore
Resilience has changed throughout the generations and as a culture, we are trending toward. The trend for parents is to protect rather than prepare the next generation for adulthood. Our greatest opportunity for leading the next generation is to model and build resiliency muscles.
Your Struggle Can Be Your Superpower
Fight for It • May 12, 2019 • Clay Scroggins
Being connected is not enough. When we respond to adversity in our lives by showing up for each other, we turn connection into community. In our greatest adversities, we receive the gift of being comforted by God, so we may then comfort others.
Building Resilience Through Rejection
Fight for It • May 5, 2019 • Clay Scroggins
Everyone faces rejection. How we handle that rejection can either cripple us or force us to become more resilient. In a critical moment during Jesus’ ministry, his heavenly Father reminded him of something that can help all of us walk through seasons where we feel rejection.
How to Build Resilience
Fight for It • April 28, 2019 • Clay Scroggins
Life is full of trials. Every trial carries with it a setback that we experience. Our ability to bounce back after experiencing a trial is called resilience. In this message, Clay teaches us how to use the smaller trials of life as the building blocks to a resilient life.
Easter: Invitation to Believe
April 21, 2019 • Andy Stanley
Following Jesus’ crucifixion, his followers expected what anyone expects after someone dies: that they would remain that way. But one of Jesus’s followers, John, gave an eyewitness account which summarized the main event surrounding Christianity: Jesus rose from the dead. In this seventh and final sign that John documents, he makes the case that Jesus is exactly who he claimed to be.
Bystander • April 14, 2019 • Andy Stanley
At different points in our lives, many of us wonder why a good God would allow bad things to happen. And without a clear response, that dilemma could cause us to question God’s existence altogether. The gospel writer John documented an occasion where Jesus not only brought his friend Lazarus back to life, but demonstrated how God can exist in the midst of a world of evil and suffering.
