The Culture of Christ: "We Love"

Randy Christian

Jesus said people would know we belong to Him because of our love for one another.  Understandable when you remember that John said the very nature of God is love.  Of course, that bets a question.  What love?  Whose definition of love?  What exactly are we commanded to do?  Whether our spouse, a neighbor, a friend or an enemy, this commands pretty much covers how we respond to everyone, so it is important for us to understand what Christians do when we say “we love”.

What's Going On? - Aftermath

Randy Christian

It’s extremely important how we behave after this election. To the Lord, to others, and to us. In fact, how we behave is either an act of worship to the Lord or an act of refusal to worship him. What’s the difference? We’ll explore that this week as we worship together and look at the “Aftermath”.

The Irrational God - Success

Stephen Ulangca

Anywhere in the world you will see people striving to be great. More money, more power, more influence, more fame—all more than others. These are the things we believe make people great. Even the greatness of churches are measured by whether they have more people, more buildings or more money than others. But Jesus said this was the world’s approach, not his. Instead, if we are to be great, we have to become the servant of everyone.

YOLO: One Trial

March 17, 2013Randy Christian

Living in a fallen world, we all have problems. In fact, many of us-maybe even most of us-have big problems. These experiences can be like a trial, showing who we are by how we respond. Making the most of life isn’t about avoiding these trials-it’s about living them! In the long run, all these experiences are the same, there is only one trial!

Una Prueba
Viviendo en un mundo caído, todos tenemos problemas. De hecho, muchos de nosotros, tal vez la mayoría de nosotros – tenemos grandes problemas. Estas experiencias pueden ser como una prueba, demostrando quienes somos por cómo respondemos. ¡Hacer lo mas de la vida no se trata de evitar estas pruebas, se trata de vivirlas! A la larga, todas experiencias son iguales, hay sólo una prueba!

To Believe And Live: Are You Leaving Too?

April 11, 2010Randy Christian

What makes people follow Jesus? What makes them turn their back on him? Sometimes the answer is Jesus himself. His teachings, his statements, his demands on our lives—all these can be reasons for people to turn away from Him. But we don’t have to be one of those people.
