The Story With Suffering | Pastor Keira Smallcombe | VIVE Church
If God is so good, why do you suffer? Why do bad things happen to you?
Anything of value has a process of suffering and suffering can shrink your perspective. In the second installment of the series, All Ways All Good, Pastor Keira delivers a powerful message entitled, The Story with Suffering. God is with you in every situation and every circumstance but God doesn’t work in prevention, He works in providence. God doesn’t cause you to suffer, but He doesn’t waste suffering. You can’t deal with suffering alone, stop suffering in your suffering, surrender your suffering to God!
All Ways All Good | Pastor Adam Smallcombe | VIVE Church
What weaknesses are you working with? If God is so good why are you so weak?
Reality is that things aren’t always good but God can work all things in ALL WAYS for your good! Pastor Adam Smallcombe kicks off a new series with a sermon entitled, All Ways All Good. God has mysterious ways that He works in your lives, and weakness is one of those ways. You must see yourself through the grace lens NOT the weak lens. Mercy covers what we’ve done but Grace is what we’re called to become. Grace is your guide post, a revealer of direction. Your desires are not the problem, it is your direction. So while your desires drive you, it has to be your grace that guides you. He has CALLED you, He has GRACED you!
Grow in the Grace | Pastor Keira Smallcombe | VIVE Church
Grace is unmerited favor and unconditional love, so how do you get this Grace? How do you grow in this Grace? How do you give this Grace?
On the heels of truth, there is always a counterfeit. In the final installment of the series, Strong in the Grace, Pastor Keira delivers a powerful message entitled, Grow in the Grace. You must know the truth and interrogate the misinformer. You must marry Grace and Knowledge to create an intimate relationship with Jesus, so that you will know His nature. In the Christian faith what you feed, you grow, so we must feed on the truth! Being exposed to the truth is essential for unity. Grace is from Heaven, but Grace has been grounded in us. So you grow Grace by being grounded in Community such that Grace moves towards people.
Gospel of Grace | Pastor Vance Roush | VIVE Church
Has shame forced you into isolation? How do you fully receive the gospel of grace if you are stuck in the cycle of shame?
The gospel of grace is not just the good news- it is the “too good to be true” news. The enemy uses shame to stall and stop you from what God has for you. When you live in a community with incredible authenticity shame will lose its power over you. Pastor Vance Roush shares a powerful word and gives three tools that grace is built on that will allow you to overcome shame. There is nothing you can do to earn grace, it is God who makes you right in His sight.
High Calling | Pastor Michelle Stewart | VIVE Church
What does it mean to forget the past and move forward? Have we neglected our future to care for our past? In the second installment of this series, Strong in the Grace, Pastor Michelle Stewart delivers a message entitled, High Calling. In this Christian life, we are called to, there is one outcome we are called to achieve: To KNOW Christ. Forget everything that hinders your faith and obedience, and remember everything that serves your faith and obedience. High calling is not about what you’re called to do, but who you’re called to know. Choose to press forward in the grace of God, and the resurrection power of Jesus.
Moving Forward | Pastor Adam Smallcombe | VIVE Church
Have you been stuck in a cycle that you can’t seem to break free from? Is the need to understand everything keeping you from moving forward?
Pastor Adam Smallcombe delivers a powerful word on Easter Sunday to help you move forward in resurrection power. Evidence without explanation means you are stuck, but evidence beyond explanation is what allows you to move forward. Instead of struggling to figure out the how, get to know God and know that when you step out, He will meet you there. It is the resurrection power that can break a cycle of defeat, and gives us the power to move forward.
A Weekly Must
I’m stunned this podcast doesn’t have more ratings! The impact of Pastor Adam’s vision for the Bay Area and the globe has impacted my life profoundly and he and his wife Pastor Keira have built such an incredible community of believers that have become my family in the Bay Area! Pastor Adam and all the others that preach at Vive Church consistently open my eyes to a new revelation that helps me recognize and surrender to God’s plan for my life. I listen as soon as it comes out to refresh and remember and pick up things I might have missed on Sunday and it’s so easy to share with loved ones out of town. If you’re in the Bay Area come check it out in person ASAP. There’s hope here.
Vive is our Family
Having recently moved to the Bay Area we had been church shopping for a couple of months and just couldn’t find anything that felt like home. When we finally found Vive it was a family member that had recently started pastoring a C3 global church. The moment we walked into Vive we knew that we had found what we were looking for. We found family.
