Making Room for the Greater Things, Part 2
In Christian circles, we tend to throw the word “blessing” around a lot. And it’s true that every good gift is from God! But even non-believers enjoy the “common grace” of everyday blessings. There’s a big difference between good things happening to us, and God actively moving in a miraculous way. As he continues our series called, Something Greater, Pastor J.D. explains how we can experience God’s miraculous, mountain-moving power in our own lives. It might not be how you expect!
Making Room for the Greater Things
What do you think a “blessed life” looks like? Wealth? Health? A happy family? Pastor J.D. describes what it looks like to be blessed by God, and explains how we can make room for him to move in our lives! It’s part of our study of the prophet Elisha titled, Something Greater.
Burn the Plows: The Call of Elisha, Part 2
Most decisions in life are reversible. Take choosing a college, for example. If you don’t like it after a semester or two, you can always transfer! And the same goes for your major, your career, and where you choose to live. But as he continues our series called, Something Greater, Pastor J.D. describes one decision that needs to be all in, no holds barred, and no going back!
Burn the Plows: The Call of Elisha
Most of us would say we want to be used by God. But Pastor J.D. is challenging us to consider whether or not we’re really willing to take up our cross and follow wherever God leads. As we wrap up First Kings, we’re shifting our focus from the prophet Elijah to his protégé, Elisha. It’s the first message in the second half of our two-part series called, Something Better | Something Greater.
When Godly People Get Depressed, Part 2
First Kings Chapter 18 records a definite high point in the life of the prophet Elijah, when he faced off against the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel. God came through for Elijah in an awesome way, and the people repented and turned back to the One True God! It was an amazing victory. But then, things seemed to go downhill. Pastor J.D. picks up the story as Elijah is on the run for his life and is dealing with some heavy emotions. We’re looking at the biblical response to depression as we continue our series called, Something Better.
When Godly People Get Depressed
Depression is stigmatized in a lot of Christian circles. We either avoid the topic entirely, or we talk about it in hushed, shameful tones. We act as if believers are just supposed to be happy-go-lucky all the time. But Pastor J.D. reveals that reality isn’t that simple! We’re discovering the biblical response for when Christians go through depression. It’s part of our study of the Prophet Elijah called, Something Better. We’re picking up the story after Elijah’s victory over the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel.
