Andy Stanley – “Jesus ignored certain religious protocols. He claimed to have authority to forgive sin. He was uncomfortably comfortable with unrepentant sinners. In this message, we hear about three encounters that showed Jesus came to reverse the order of things.”
Andy Stanley – “We often read the Bible for application, inspiration, or direction. However, there are times when the author wants to simply point the reader to a big idea—an idea that fits with God’s grand story. In the Gospel of Mark, we read about Peter’s experience with Jesus that led Peter to believe in one big idea: the kingdom of God is near, and everyone is invited to participate.”
Tim Keller shares with us the psalmists painful prayer to a God he feels has abandoned him.
Tim Keller | Psalm 88
All spiritual gifts come to us by the Holy Spirit, and all are given for the same reason: to serve the body of Christ in love. These gifts are at work today, but so many of us have either never heard of the gifts or seen them twisted for a glory other than God’s. But God has gifted, called and empowered each of us with gifts for the building up of His Church. In this series, we’ll explore the gifts together and help one another discover what our gifts are.
God has designed the body of Christ as an interdependent system with each part playing its own role in the mission of making disciples.
SCRIPTURE: 1 CORINTHIANS 12:12-31
