The Hidden Kingdom - Pt 10: “People of Peace”
In this week’s sermon, we discuss Matthew chapter 10 when Jesus sends out the 12 disciples to share the good news of the kingdom. Jesus gives them some very practical instructions on how to be intentional in sharing the gospel that we would do well to learn from. Jesus calls us to be carriers of the gospel of peace and to spend time investing in those whose lives are open to us. May we learn to be safe and wise as we pour into the lives of others.
The Hidden Kingdom - Pt. 9: “Bearing Fruit”
In this week’s message, we explore the parable of the soils that Jesus told in Matthew 13. Jesus describes several ways that we can be ripped off from truly understanding the life-giving words of His kingdom, Instead, He offers a way forward that will produce a fruitful life if we purpose to truly integrate His words into our lives. May we all gain a true understanding of His Kingdom’s power and availability to set us free from the empty kingdoms of this world.
Easter Sunrise - 2021
It’s Resurrection Sunday! In this week’s sermon, we consider the risen Jesus through the eyes of Simon Peter. After a long night of fishing with nothing to show for it, Jesus calls out to him from the shore of the Sea of Galilee, the same place where Peter was first called to follow him, where Jesus calmed the deadly storm, and where Peter joined his Master for a walk on the water. May we have eyes to see our risen savior Jesus, and faith to take the plunge as he calls us into resurrection life.
The Hidden Kingdom - Pt 8: “Be Ready”
In this week's sermon, we focus on one of Jesus primary concerns between Palm Sunday and Good Friday. Jesus spent time with his followers emphasizing the need for them to be ready - ready for his second coming, ready for the challenges they would face while they waited, and ultimately the call to be ready to minister to a world in need. May we all be ready to participate in Jesus present activity while we receive strength and patience from him as we await his victorious return!
The Hidden Kingdom - Part 7: “Kingdom Curiosity”
As we continue our journey exploring the hidden nature of God’s Kingdom, we spend time focusing on how important it is to develop a healthy sense of curiosity in our relationship with Jesus. The biggest difference between Jesus' disciples, and all the other folks who witnessed His life, miracles, and teachings - was that Jesus' followers were hungry to understand what he was all about. Many people had good news right in front of them but missed it because they were unable to truly understand what Jesus had to offer. It wasn’t about their level of intelligence or even their spiritual acumen - it just boiled down to where they focused their attention. Will we purpose to behold Jesus and discover the riches of His kingdom?
The Hidden Kingdom - Pt 6. "Thy Kingdom Come"
In today’s sermon, we explore the important role that prayer plays in helping us to participate in God’s Hidden Kingdom. Jesus lived his life fully grasping the purpose of prayer and therefore giving it a high place in his daily life. Thankfully we can learn from his example, and receive the wonderful gift he has given us so that we can experience the power of a life connected with God.
I have been a member of the Grace Chapel Liepers Fork family for years. I love the teaching and biblical truth Pastor Steve brings each week live. However, I started listening to Pastor Jake via Podcast since the pandemic started. I enjoy listening to his soft, calming, reassuring voice. As I walk my dogs at 5:00am my ear is not only filled with this calm reassurance, I am filled with biblical truth in a way that is easily understood and applicable to my daily life.
Thank you Pastor Jake for your wisdom and Spirit-filled teaching.
Love this church!
Great teaching and great church body!
