    The Way of Self-Denial

    The Way of Self-Denial

    Have you ever made huge sacrifices to get something? What would make you give up everything, surrender your own will, and make tremendous sacrifices daily? What we find in the pages of Scripture is that Jesus is worthy of losing everything. Discipleship to Jesus always comes with the cost of daily surrender. But what we gain in the process is infinitely better than what we give up. Listen to this message as we walk through a theology of self-denial.

    Biblical Fasting

    Biblical Fasting

    Do you ever go to make a decision and aren't sure that you're doing the right thing? Do you want to be more reliant on God and less hungry for worldly things? Have you ever considered fasting for spiritual reasons, but don't know where to start? All through Scripture you see God lead and desire our growth toward Him through fasting and prayer. But do you understand why, how, and when to do it?

    God is seeking you. If you take time to purpose yourself through fasting you will find that you are more deeply connected to Him and relying on Him for something that sustains you far better than food — a rich relationship with God, the Creator. Listen in this week as Scott leads through Matthew 4, the story of Jesus fasting for 40 days and nights as he is lead into the wilderness before being tempted, and see how God is leading to full reliance on Him.

    Living at a Purposeful Pace

    Living at a Purposeful Pace

    Opportunity isn't something we are lacking these days. Everywhere you turn there is something or someone pitching the latest idea, trying to get on your schedule, and vying to put their priority at the top of your list. God called us to live life abundantly, but how do you live life with abundance without getting caught up in the hurry? How did Jesus model living life to the fullest — a life that included plenty of time in quiet, solitude, prayer, and margin.

    This week, Pastor Jason unpacks Luke 4 on how to identify your most impactful priorities, and live a life that you can look back on without regrets— a life lived at a purposeful pace. Listen in for practical truths to prioritize your life based on the life of Christ.

    Sabbath as a Rhythm of Rest

    Sabbath as a Rhythm of Rest

    In a technology-driven world that runs on non-stop work, the Scriptures offer an ancient and counter-cultural idea: Sabbath rest. Sabbath is the Hebrew word meaning “to stop” and carries the connotation of delighting in the finished work.

    For people in a world of overwork and exhaustion, the Scriptures invite us into a weekly rhythm of rest. The deep longing of our hearts is to experience true and perfect peace—a peace that's found in Jesus alone, and one we live out on purpose through Sabbath. Listen to this message to learn more.

    Living the Way of Jesus

    Living the Way of Jesus

    Does life feel like running a marathon? You're running and running, but never stop to rest? Is your soul tired and weak from never getting the nourishment from pausing, reflecting, and breathing?

    Jesus walked the perfect life. He ran hard after people that needed healing, redemption, and a peace that only He offered. But after He ministered, He rested, but not like we understand rest. Join in this week as Pastor Jason talks us through the Gospels to show us the rhythm of Jesus' life and ministry, and the one thing He always made time for.
