    The Power of Words

    The Power of Words

    Have you experienced the lasting impact that words can have on your life? In Lead Pastor Erwin McManus’ new message “The Power of Words,” he explores the unique power of language and how God harnesses it to create life.

    From the very beginning in Genesis chapter 1, God uses language to create light and life out of nothing. He creates, he blesses, and proceeds to call His creation, “Good.” Here, we learn that God always creates what is good, beautiful, and true. In contrast, the voice of darkness enters the script in Genesis chapter 3.

    The voice of doubt is introduced as a snake speaks to Eve and contradicts God’s voice. This voice always tears man, God, and creation apart from one another. Pastor Erwin reminds us that our soul is in the wrong conversation when we’re not in a conversation with the one who created us.

    Pastor Erwin encourages us that even if we feel as though we’ve lost touch with the frequency of God’s voice, we can always tune back into it when we decide to listen for it again. Our lives are either shaped by the words of darkness or the words of light and God is longing to illuminate our lives with light when we give his voice precedence.

    If you've lost touch with God's voice in your life, this message will help you reconnect with the only voice that can shape your life into something beautiful, good, and true.

    Eternal

    Eternal

    In Lead Pastor Erwin McManus’ captivating Easter message “Eternal,” he brings us into the monumental moment when time and eternity collided as Jesus died on the cross.

    In Matthew chapter 27, a wide array of astonishing events come to pass at the moment of Jesus’ death. Not only did the veil in the Jewish temple tear in two, but bodies were raised from their graves and began to walk around the city.

    Moments before Jesus died, he cried out to God,  “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Pastor Erwin highlights that God wanted us to know that Jesus could relate to the darkest moments in our story because of what he endured on the cross. But what do we make of the supernatural occurrences after Jesus’ death?

    Pastor Erwin compares the moment of Jesus' death to a black hole colliding with a white hole; the totality of light consuming all darkness. The veil being torn represented the ripping apart of the separation between God and man. The walking dead show us that our eternal bodies are only graves waiting to be resurrected to life through Jesus.

    If you’ve wrestled with feeling empty or searching for an answer to your soul’s longing for life, this message will invite you to surrender your life to Jesus - the only one who can raise you out of the darkness.

    The Living | From The Archives

    The Living | From The Archives

    For Easter Sunday, Lead Pastor Erwin McManus brings us into a powerful conversation on the life of Jesus and his desire to wrestle us free from the things that are stealing life from us.In Luke chapter 24 we learn that two women ran to Jesus' tomb after he had resurrected, searching for his body. They were met by two men that were beaming with light. The women were asked "Why are you looking for the living among the dead?" Pastor Erwin emphasizes that cemeteries are the most predictable place in the world. But Jesus was an outlier to monotonous this narrative.Many of us ask God for a lot of things while neglecting to ask for the one thing that could change everything. We ask for a house, a car, or a spouse. Meanwhile, Jesus desires to give us life from the inside-out, not just decorations for our bodies. Similar to the angels asking the two women at Jesus' tomb what they were looking for, Jesus asks us the same question.Pastor Erwin shares that Jesus is consistently working to bring us to a crossroads in our lives-choosing between life or death. Often, we think we either have to choose between life or death and then add God to the equation. But Pastor Erwin states that the words "life" and "God" are synonymous, just like the word death is synonymous with a life absent of God's presence. Death looks like jealousy, greed, and violence ruling our lives. Life is the existence God wants us to experience when we live deeply connected to Jesus.If you've been living a life that is decorated with things but absent of true life, this message will empower you to leave death behind and take Jesus at his word as he offers you abundant life.

Freedom to grow in Jesus

This last message that I listened to was a life changer for me, because it really hit home. I have been struggling with frustration, guilt, failure, acceptance and the idea that I was not good enough and was unable to do better. I tried day after day unmercifully to be what I thought Jesus wanted me to be through what I have learned in “religion”. Always trying to make myself different, be different and be the “good “ person that Jesus wanted me to be, but day after day always missing the mark. Hearing that I can be me, with the personality that God gave me and the attributes that he placed in me so that he can flow through me, has given me a overall sense of freedom and joy. It relieves me of the burden of changing myself and allows me to let Christ flow through me and let me be at peace with who I am through Christ instead of always being upset and disappointed with myself, because I could never seem to fit in and become some of the things I was being told I needed to do and to be a “good Christian”.Thank you for this beautiful, inspiring, Christ centered message and we may we all learn to fly like a falcon as Jesus flows through us!

Words that bless and enrich the soul

I rave about Erwin McManus because I was hooked 7 years ago when I read The Artisan Soul. He is a great representation of Jesus and expresses Him so well. These are messages that ignite and make you want to live out your God-given purpose.
