    We Are … People of the Book
    Series: We Are ...
    Whatever you are filled up with comes out whenever real life hits you in the face. Our culture says we should be true to ourselves, but being true to ourselves is at the root of every act of sin and evil in the world. It’s not Christian. What we need is to be true to Jesus, not ourselves. That means being people of the Book!

    Growing to Love People … Even THOSE People
    So much of our world works on a spite cycle. If you hurt me, I’m going to hurt you back. It’s a vicious cycle that never ends. But Jesus’ way is the way out of the spite cycle. Living by His Law of Love will always change us and will often change the world around us too.

    What it Means to Really Love God
    It’s easy to justify your actions. We’ve all seen it. We’ve all done it. We’re all good at it. But what does it mean to love God when we are so good at justifying our sin? Loving God means obeying Him even when it’s hard.

    People of Extravagant Love
    Our world says love is basically a transaction of self-fulfillment. You stay in a love relationship as long as both sides profit from it. However, when the costs outweigh the benefits, you just cut your losses and move on. But that is not Christian love. In Christ, we know that all life-changing love is substitutionary sacrifice. That is what Jesus did for us on the cross and that is what He gives us the power to do when we are in Him.

    When Love Orders Our Steps
    Series: Simple Faith
    Love that is superficial and reserved for people I like and who are on my team is normal. Anybody can do that. But chain-breaking, slave-embracing, oppression-defeating kind of love is supernatural. Only Jesus can love like that. That kind of love can change your life! Not only that, that kind of love can change your family . . . your workplace . . . your school . . . our community . . . our country . . . and even the world.
