M2: Making Good Work | Colossians 3:22-4:1
In Colossians 3:22-4:1, the Apostle Paul instructs slaves and masters on how they should perform their work. The Bible makes clear that work matters to God, because He uses it to bless the world, and He is ultimately everyone’s master. This reality changes our perspective. God should matter to our work, since when we do it well, we are actually helping to fulfill the commandment to love our neighbor. But how can we do this, especially if we feel like slaves…
God’s Cosmic Plan | Genesis 13:1-14:24
Old Testament stories like Abram and Lot separating or the battle of the 9 kings in the plain of Jordan are interesting and exciting, but what are we as Christians supposed to get from them? This week’s message explains how these stories and the mysterious King Melkizedek from Genesis 13:1-14:24 set up a plot line that takes 2000 years to be fully revealed to us. It’s all part of God’s eternal cosmic plan that centers on Jesus, our King, our Priest.

What hope is there for followers of Jesus,…
Multiply Jesus Followers | Luke 10:1-20
On June 6, 1944, General Eisenhower issued his “Order of the Day” for the troops under his command. This order launched the Allied invasion of Normandy and the liberation of Europe from Nazi control in World War II. In Luke 10:1-20, Commander Jesus issues his order for the 72 disciples that are sent to go out before him. Jesus’ instructions are for all followers of Jesus, and while the mission may seem dangerous, the good news is that nothing can…
