The gospel of Jesus Christ is the source of our life, a deep well of grace that transforms us and propels us into the world. Join Pastor J.D. Greear each weekday to learn how the gospel can bring new life in you and through you.
Unity > Uniformity
What do you think would happen if the church made unity in the gospel more important than divisions over debatable things? In this message, Pastor J.D. teaches from Romans 14 and 15 about how to handle conflicts in the church over matters that are more about preferences than those essential for salvation. When we learn how to prioritize healthy family fellowship over uniformity, then we will become the kind of church our communities need.
#NotMyKingdom, Part 2
Jesus once told the Pharisees to “give to Caesar what is Caesar’s but to God what is God’s.” In today’s message, Pastor J.D. continues to look at Romans 13 and its instructions on how to honor and obey those in government. We learn that, while we should submit to authority, we are also under God’s greater claim. When the government fails us, we can trust in God’s good plan, because our hope lies in him, not politicians.
For the first century church and the worldwide church today, one of the most difficult places to overcome evil with good is in its relationship with the government. In this message, Pastor J.D. gleans Paul’s wisdom from Romans 13 and shows us why, even when we don’t approve of certain political leaders or endorse what they stand for, we must still honor them. We submit from our hearts, but never in a way that disobeys God.
Loving Your Enemies, Part 2
When you’re fighting evil in the world, you’re facing two battlefronts: the evil in another person but also the evil that wants to grow in you in response to what someone has done to you. In today’s message, Pastor J.D. continues to show us how to overcome evil with good. When you learn to love not by trying harder but by experiencing it through Jesus, then you have the power to conquer evil and love more like him.
Loving Your Enemies
How do you normally respond when someone treats you unfairly or disappoints you? We can all probably quote verses from the Bible about what gospel love looks like, but it’s often difficult to show that kind of love to our enemies. In this message, Pastor J.D. looks to Romans 12 to give us four ways to overcome evil with good and how remembering how Jesus has loved you will help you do the same for others.
Loving Your Friends, Part 2
Can you imagine a church that didn’t need great musicians or special events to attract people because of the way that it loved each other and the world? We don’t have to wonder if or how that’s possible. Pastor J.D. continues in this message from Romans 12 to show us how Romans 12 teaches what gospel-shaped love looks like and how, when it is on display in the church, it will transform the world.
