Sermon messages from Pastor J.D. Greear and the pastoral team of The Summit Church. The Summit is one church that meets in many locations around Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
Prepare The Way
In this week's message, Capital Hills Campus Pastor John Muller teaches about preparing the way for Jesus by working through Mark 1:1-8.
Preparing the Way of the Lord
Pastor Daniel Simmons shares a message from Matthew 3:1-11.
Would you describe yourself as a generous person? If not, chances are that you may be viewing the world through the wrong lens. In this week's message from Leviticus 19, Pastor J.D. shows us how seeing the world through the correct lens can propel us toward lives characterized by gratitude and generosity. Though there may not be a prescribed amount that we are to give, it is clear that God intends for us to steward what he has entrusted to us in a way that results in considerable blessing to those who are in need.
The Attack on Identity
Who are you, really? In a culture rife with comparison, the question of identity is one that tends to plague many of us. Is your identity anchored in things such as your accomplishments, your net worth, your social media presence—or in God's purpose and plan for your life? In this week's message from Matthew 3 and 4, Pastor J.D. explains common snares that Satan uses to attack our identity and how, by being grounded in the truths of Scripture, we can avoid becoming entangled in them.
The Demonic is Closer Than You Think
When you think about the realm of the demonic, perhaps your thoughts tend toward Hollywood depictions of it rather than its real influence in the world around you. As we begin a short series on spiritual warfare, Pastor J.D. takes us through the realities of demonic activity in this week's message from Luke 11. Though the attacks and accusations of Satan can often lead us to despair, there is much hope to be found in fully surrendering to Jesus, the only one who has truly conquered this unseen Enemy.
The Bird of Mercy
The book of Jonah ends in a curious manner, with a surprising cliffhanger of a question posed to Jonah. And while we are left wondering what Jonah will do, the real question for us becomes what we will do with God's invitation to extend mercy to our enemies. As we wrap up our series through the book of Jonah, Pastor Bryan walks us through chapter 4, detailing reasons why it is often so hard for us to show mercy, and how we can ultimately grow in mercy. The next move is ours—will it be one toward mercy or toward anger and bitterness?
Pastor JD - Thank you for your faithfulness to the call. I listen to your sermons each week and the other pastor’s as well. The one June 6th on Paul’s thorn was beyond timely in my life. My kids and grandkids live in Wake Forest, and I always encourage them to PLEASE visit Summit Church!! ( PS my son is also a Nicholas Cage fan )
This sermon series, this entire channel actually, has been a tremendous blessing. I was really discouraged and downtrodden and I stumbled upon this channel, looking for something to lift me up and bring me back on the right track and this helped me get back in line to where I needed to be. Please keep the sermons coming and stay strong in the Lord.
JD is legit
Great solid interesting teaching.
