    I Still Need a Nap (with Noel Heikkinen)

    I Still Need a Nap (with Noel Heikkinen)

    Jason talks with Noel about his message from 2 Corinthians 7:2-10, and how Godly grief leads us to change not just the way we behave, but the way we think--and live.
    Listen to Noel's message
    Make room for us in your hearts. We have wronged no one, corrupted no one, taken advantage of no one. I don’t say this to condemn you, since I have already said that you are in our hearts, to die together and to live together. I am very frank with you; I have great pride in you. I am filled with encouragement; I am overflowing with joy in all our afflictions.In fact, when we came into Macedonia, we had no rest. Instead, we were troubled in every way: conflicts on the outside, fears within. But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the arrival of Titus, and not only by his arrival but also by the comfort he received from you. He told us about your deep longing, your sorrow, and your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced even more. For even if I grieved you with my letter, I don’t regret it. And if I regretted it — since I saw that the letter grieved you, yet only for a while — I now rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because your grief led to repentance. For you were grieved as God willed, so that you didn’t experience any loss from us. For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, but worldly grief produces death.

    Maybe I'll Go to Chick-fil-A (with James Granger)

    Maybe I'll Go to Chick-fil-A (with James Granger)

    Jason talks to Pastor James about his message from 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1 and the two talk about James' ministry story, where he got a 125-year-old yoke, and whether Christians should only eat at Chick-fil-A (no, but that sounds delicious).
    Listen to James' messageListen to Tony's message
    Do not be yoked together with those who do not believe. For what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? And what agreement does the temple of God have with idols? For we are the temple of the living God, as God said:I will dwelland walk among them,and I will be their God,and they will be my people.Therefore, come out from among themand be separate, says the Lord;do not touch any unclean thing,and I will welcome you.And I will be a Father to you,and you will be sons and daughters to me,says the Lord Almighty.So then, dear friends, since we have these promises, let us cleanse ourselves from every impurity of the flesh and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.

    Stumbling But Not a Stumbling Block (with Noel Heikkinen)

    Stumbling But Not a Stumbling Block (with Noel Heikkinen)

    Jason and Noel talk about Noel's message from 2 Corinthians 6:3-13, and touch on Riv's mission statement, the priesthood of all believers, and how to stumble together without being a stumbling block.
    Listen to Noel's Message
    We are not giving anyone an occasion for offense, so that the ministry will not be blamed. Instead, as God’s ministers, we commend ourselves in everything: by great endurance, by afflictions, by hardships, by difficulties, by beatings, by imprisonments, by riots, by labors, by sleepless nights, by times of hunger, by purity, by knowledge, by patience, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God; through weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left, through glory and dishonor, through slander and good report; regarded as deceivers, yet true; as unknown, yet recognized; as dying, yet see — we live; as being disciplined, yet not killed; as grieving, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet enriching many; as having nothing, yet possessing everything. We have spoken openly to you, Corinthians; our heart has been opened wide. We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us. I speak as to my children; as a proper response, open your heart to us.

    Is Oatmeal a Soup? (with Noel Heikkinen, Tony Pyle, and Justin Detmers)

    Is Oatmeal a Soup? (with Noel Heikkinen, Tony Pyle, and Justin Detmers)

    Jason talks with Noel, Tony, and Justin about their Easter messages from 2 Corinthians 5:16-6:2, and uncovers some important truths about reconciliation, our role as ambassadors, and the nature of soup. It'll all make sense, we promise.
    Listen to Noel's MessageListen to Tony's MessageListen to Justin's Message
    From now on, then, we do not know anyone from a worldly perspective. Even if we have known Christ from a worldly perspective, yet now we no longer know him in this way. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come! Everything is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. That is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and he has committed the message of reconciliation to us.Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God.” He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.Working together with him, we also appeal to you, “Don’t receive the grace of God in vain.” For he says:At an acceptable time I listened to you,and in the day of salvation I helped you.See, now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation!

    Congratulations, You're an Evangelical (with Noel Heikkinen)

    Congratulations, You're an Evangelical (with Noel Heikkinen)

    This week, Jason and Noel talk about Noel's message from 2 Corinthians 5:11-15. Noel also gives us an overview of Riv's stance on Baptism, and we explore what it looks like to be an evangelistic church.
    Listen to Noel's Message
    Therefore, since we know the fear of the Lord, we try to persuade people. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your consciences. We are not commending ourselves to you again, but giving you an opportunity to be proud of us, so that you may have a reply for those who take pride in outward appearance rather than in the heart. For if we are out of our mind, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For the love of Christ compels us, since we have reached this conclusion, that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the one who died for them and was raised.

    Sufficient but not Exhaustive with Tony Pyle and Hezekiah Trevino

    Sufficient but not Exhaustive with Tony Pyle and Hezekiah Trevino

    Jason talks with Tony Pyle, our Westside Venue Director, and Hezekiah Trevino, our Pastoral Resident, about their messages from 2 Corinthians 5:1-10. They also talk about what on earth Paul means by "the judgment seat of Christ," and why Bible translations change over time.
    Listen to Tony's message.Listen to Hezekiah's message.Listen to Brad Kidder's message from the Holt Venue.
    "For we know that if our earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal dwelling in the heavens, not made with hands. Indeed, we groan in this tent, desiring to put on our heavenly dwelling, since, when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. Indeed, we groan while we are in this tent, burdened as we are, because we do not want to be unclothed but clothed, so that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave us the Spirit as a down payment.So we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. In fact, we are confident, and we would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. Therefore, whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to be pleasing to him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may be repaid for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil."
