Big Idea: "There is a low chance anyone on a Sunday morning will become a false prophet, but we all have a good chance of following a false prophet.

The Big Idea:Following Jesus means loving people, and that gets messy quick.Take Away:We’ve often said at Grace Church that the Kingdom of God is people and things as they should be.

Excuse the blip at the beginning of the sermon, our livestream cut out so that part is audio only.Jesus gives us a new and radically different definition of what it means to be “great”Being great in the Kingdom of God is not like being great in the world. It involves using the power we have for those who don’t, making room for others by giving up o…

“Light” is given to us for the benefit of all. True understanding comes from obedience. Enlightenment without action is toxic.We all have more “truth” than we know what to do with.

Love is a person, love is a verb (thanks, DC Talk), love in an action, characteristic, posture, and lens through which we see the world. When we only talk about it as a feeling or emotion we miss the bigger picture, so let’s expand our understanding.Loving from the center of who we are takes intentionality and work, but it allows us to follow what …

Growing up in a Christian culture has big advantages, and none at all.Having access to the Good News, hearing the Gospel and growing up in a culture where there are all kinds of churches, and Young Life and K-Life and Cru and Kanakuk is a tremendous gift.
