Meet Me in the Pages

A study of the four gospels with a five chapter per week reading plan

Total Trust (Week 1)

January 5, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

In the Meet Me in the Pages series, we study the four Gospels with the sole intent of coming to know Jesus with increasing clarity and intimacy. Our reading plan is to read one chapter of the Gospel, starting with Matthew, each day, Monday through Friday (using Saturday and Sunday for catch up and review). As you read each chapter, make note of the verse or verses that particularly stand out to you. As you pray about the verse(s), ask, "What does God want me to know, feel, and do?" Journal your answers. This study is designed to bring you closer to Jesus, into the relationship you have always wanted with Him...and that He has always wanted with you! If you would like to use the study journal for Matthew, please click the link to download the PDF. It is a very helpful tool to use in studying the Gospel of Matthew. Look for the study journals for Mark, Luke, and John in subsequent episodes of Meet Me in the Pages.

Matthew 1-5 (Week 2)

January 12, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

A note from Senior Pastor Rick Baldwin: I hope that you’re joining with the church in reading the Gospel of Matthew. I know from emails that a number of people have experienced Jesus meeting them in the pages. I pray that has been your experience as well! Let me know if it has been. In this video, I teach from Matthew 4:12-25. Jesus had profoundly met me in those pages!! Watch this message to hear what I’ve experienced and learned!

Matthew 6-10 (Week 3)

January 19, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

We have heard story after story of how and where Jesus has met someone "In the Pages" of Matthew as they have read it and used the study journal we’ve provided. We believe God wants to encounter each of us in profound and personal ways in this series. Watch this video and catch the wave of God’s activity!

Matthew 11-15 (Week 4)

January 26, 2020 • Weston Savell

In part four of our series Meet Me in the Pages, Pastor of Revive Weston Savell charges us to use the KISS principle when it comes to our faith. Weston (substituting "Silly" for the last S, in order to keep his message friendly) urges us to "Keep It Simple Silly" when studying the Gospel of Matthew. Watch as he shares some very simple truths from Matthew 14 that could very well change how you follow Jesus. #MeetMeinthePages

Matthew 21-25 (Week 5)

February 2, 2020 • Weston Savell

In a world where we all are trying to find contentment, fulfillment, and joy, Jesus gives the answer to life's greatest question, "What is the meaning of life?" If you have ever asked yourself, "What is my purpose? Why am I here?" please watch this message. If you have ever felt unloved, unloveable, or incapable of loving, watch this message. There is so much truth and love in this one passage of Matthew. It truly may change your life. (This week, Senior Pastor Rick Baldwin was scheduled to preach from Matthew 16-20 on The Most Destructive Lie of Our Time. However, we took a little detour into Matthew chapter 22. The video explains why.)

Matthew 16-20 (Week 6)

February 9, 2020 • Tim Jirrels

In Matthew 16:13-14 Jesus asked His disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” Then in Matthew 16:15-16 He asked them, "But what about you? Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” C.S. Lewis said Jesus is either a liar, a lunatic, or He is Lord. Who do you say that Jesus is? Is He your Lord and Savior? Watch this message and ask yourself who He is to you.

Matthew 26-Mark 2 (Week 7)

February 16, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

In Week 7 of our Meet Me in the Pages reading plan, we read the last three chapters of Matthew and the first two chapters of Mark. In this message, Senior Pastor Rick Baldwin talks about how gripping chapter 28 of Matthew is. If you are reading along with us, you know just what he means! What this message to see more!

Mark 3-7 (Week 8)

February 23, 2020 • Kevin Pate

Traditions: We all have them. But maybe we have more traditions than we think, and maybe some aren't healthy. In this week's Meet Me in the Pages message, Lead Pastor Kevin Pate teaches from Mark 7, where Jesus talks to the Pharisees about some of their traditions. Watch and see how to have heart-healthy traditions in your life.

Mark 8-12 (Week 9)

March 1, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

Have you ever believed a lie someone has told you and, as a result, suffered painful consequences? We all have. It is not a good experience, to say the least. There is a lie making the rounds these days that we believe is causing more destruction than any other lie of our time. Curious? We’ll give you two clues. 1) It is bigger than life and death, and (2) you’ve come across it as you’ve read Matthew and Mark. Watch/listen to this message to see what it is. We can guarantee that you or someone you know believes this most destructive lie!!

Mark 13-Luke 1 (Week 10)

March 8, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

If your life were to end today, what would you be famous for? Or, if you’re uncomfortable with that wording, what would you be known for? Would you be famous/known for something you did, or perhaps for a distinctive character trait? Would you be pleased with what you would be famous/known for, or would you hope to change it with the time you have remaining on this earth? In this message we look at an ordinary woman in Scripture who has extraordinary and lasting fame. There is much that we can learn from her!!

Luke 7-11 (Week 11)

March 22, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

Have you ever been disappointed with God? Luke 7 provides deep and practical insight on this timely subject. (We skipped the message on Luke 2-6, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Instead, last week Tim Jirrels taught a message called "Fear". You can find it in our Stand Alone Messages.)

Luke 12-16 (Week 12)

March 29, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

Rick speaks on one of Jesus’ key teachings on “worry.” It is so easy to let worry get the best of us, but Jesus tells us not to worry. He tells us in Luke 12 to seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and He will give you everything you need. Do you trust HIm enough to believe that?

Luke 17-21 (Week 13)

April 5, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

In Luke chapter 17, Jesus does a miracle for someone that alters their life. In this message Pastor Rick teaches on that passage, believing that God can do a similar miracle, and even far more reaching, for you! And that is not said lightly at all. If God does this miracle, it will radically alter every event in your life to come. Please watch with open heart and open mind.

John 3-7 (Week 14)

April 19, 2020 • Rick Baldwin

During this time of quarantine and social distancing, sometimes it feels like one day just blends into the next. But even when we are in difficult times, we are still to wake up every morning to do the work God has assigned us. But what is that work? And how do we find the energy to do it? Watch or listen to this to see.

John 8-12 (Week 15)

April 26, 2020 • Weston Savell

Join us as Pastor of Revive Weston Savell leads us through John 9:1-7 in our Meet Me in the Pages series. At the end, Weston asked us to think about, pray about, and maybe even write down our answers to three questions: 1. How has this interruption affected me physically and emotionally? Share that with the Lord. 2. How can I be a hope giver? 3. How is God speaking to you now? Write that down.
