We all long for something we call “peace”, but is that the peace that we find in the Bible?Learning what the peace that God promises and embodies is essential to our rightly aligning our imagination and expectations.Isaiah 9: 1-7 (NET)You can find out more about us at our website www.gracechurchnwa.org.…
 
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 …
 
Our experience of Joy, or the lack thereof, is a significant indicator of what we are giving space to in our lives.Holding space, or making room for Joy is one of the primary spiritual disciplines of the Jesus follower.Philippians 2:1-11 (NET)You can find out more about us at our website www.gracechurchnwa.org.…
 
What we hope for is guided by what we perceive to be the need. Deeply examining what it is we are hoping for reveals much about our hearts. Where is our hope centered? Who is included in our hopes and who is left out? Does what we hope for only benefit us? Does our hope cost us anything?Luke 3: 1-6 (NET)You can find out more about us at our website…
 
Being in Christ sets the threat level of our lives to absolute zero when it comes to the things that we are usually taught to fear.Living out of our being in Christ sets us free from the threats of the “the way things are” and having to live from our own resources. It reorients us to consider what is really really threatening and allows us to face …
 
Growing up in the Christian faith can sometimes lead us to miss how much more God is than anything else, including the sins that we commit.Our western, Evangelical way of thinking has placed an inordinate amount of attention on sin and our identity becomes one that is framed by our sin rather than the actual truth that we are image bearers of God, …
 
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. It is all also worthless, even damning if we think it is those things that save us.Romans 3-4Y…

We don’t earn God’s love and acceptance of us in any way shape or form. Humility towards ourselves and others is the only reasonable response to this fact.Our attitudes and postures towards those we disagree with is one of the most visible displays of what we believe about ourselves and about God. The way of Jesus is one of humility, grace and love…
 
The Kingdom of God is open for everybody. And that has some serious consequences.As followers of Jesus we must constantly be returning to our roots, to the person and ethos of Jesus the Messiah and doing this in a way that acts as a consistent critique of our practices and privileges.Romans 9:1-11:10You can find out more about us at our website www…
 
The essence of knowing is in the doing. The essence of obedience is in the acting. The essence of loving God is in loving others.In many ways, following Jesus isn’t that difficult to understand, but can seem impossible, at times, to actually do. Visible results are limited at best and immediate, miraculous changes or resolutions rare. This might be…

Choices have consequences. God is always offering us so much more than we can imagine, but never forcing or coercing us.

Prophecies enable God’s people to look at the world in the right way.

This passage gives us a divine pattern that will be repeated throughout the life and ministry of Jesus. That its the MARGINS - the marginalized, and those furthest from power, that scripture consistently points to as the people and places from which the LIGHT BREAKS FORTH. Our nature will always be drawn to the safety, stability and practicality of…

Conspiracy theories, special knowledge and supernatural sign seeking are all ways of shunning truthful encounters with the living God and the invitation to live by sacrificial faith. These things must be recognized and rejected for the dangers they present. Text: Isaiah 8 (NET)J…
 
God always shows up in surprisingly human ways. Unlike other religions and philosophies, the God encountered in the Bible refuses to be reduced to a “force”, God’s Word refuses reduction to abstract formulas, God’s presence is always “incarnate”.www.gracechurchnwa.org저자 Grace Church NWA
