Sermon messages from Pastor J.D. Greear and the pastoral team of The Summit Church. The Summit is one church that meets in many locations around Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
Take Up Your Cross
As we continue our “In Step” series through the Gospel of Luke, Pastor J.D. asks us to count the cost of truly following Jesus. When Jesus called his first disciples, he warned them that it was going to cost them everything. The path of discipleship hasn’t changed. Are we willing to count the cost, laying aside what we value most for what he offers us?
The Holiness of God
As we continue our “In Step” series through the Gospel of Luke, Pastor Raudel calls us to stand in awe before God’s perfect, otherworldly, mind-blowing holiness. If we saw God for who he truly was—in all his holiness—we would either die of fear or die of pleasure. Thankfully, in Christ, we can meet the gaze of this holy God, not in condemnation, but in overwhelming compassion.
As we continue our “In Step” series through the Gospel of Luke, Pastor J.D. invites us to view Jesus the way his original disciples did: with overwhelming awe at his radical love. Because when we see the radical love of Jesus for us, we will respond with radical surrender to him. Our lives—and the world—will never be the same.
Open Eyes, Open Hearts
As we continue our “In Step” series through the Gospel of Luke, guest pastor Clayton King walks us down the Emmaus road of Luke 24, showing us a picture of God’s grace that pursues us, often in unseen ways. God’s grace opens our eyes to see the resurrected Jesus and opens our hearts to the astounding love of God.
A Sinner, a Savior, and Surrender
As we continue our “In Step” series through the Gospel of Luke, Pastor Curtis teaches about a wee little man we all know—Zacchaeus. What changed Zacchaeus? Not biblical principles. Not personal devotion. Not religious duties and deeds. No, what changed Zacchaeus is what changes us—a glimpse of God in the flesh.
Bring the Little Children to Me: A Plea for Life
As we continue our “In Step” series through the Gospel of Luke, Pastor J.D. teaches about a defining feature of those who follow Jesus: They care for the vulnerable, the weak, the helpless, and the forgotten. Followers of Jesus care for the vulnerable and the helpless because, before God, we are vulnerable and helpless, too.
