Some stories shouldn’t be unpacked too soon. They need time to mature and mellow before they are opened up and experienced again. God mercifully allows us to forget certain things or experiences until we’re ready… until He’s prepared us… to unpack them. In His endless mercy and wisdom, He knows that some stories can’t bear to be retold until the road stretches far enough behind us for wounds to be healed, and our hindsight is clear enough to bring appreciation and understanding. The amazing thing is, He never writes any stories that end in brokenness. Nothing that happens to us is void of purpose or opportunity. Jesus gave His life to assure us of this timeless and powerful truth. He is the culmination of God’s story for all humans, and you are no exception. If you want to be encouraged that everything broken can be made beautiful in God’s time and by His power, then listen now as we explore the unending love of God and its power to transform anything for His glory.

Jesus taught the disciples to operate on a micro-scale, creating a ripple effect powered by the Holy Spirit that eventually changed the lives of countless people throughout the ages. Today, more and more Christians are being duped into believing that God is calling them to serve Him on a macro-scale, creating an impersonal wave of information that reaches millions but changes no one. Our culture pushes us to desire the praise of many for being different, yet we yearn to display our uniqueness and offer our precious talents from the safety of a distant place. We don’t actually want to get in the ordinary trenches of others’ lives and help them walk through the pain, the need, and the despair. Through the exchange of His life for ours, Jesus forever altered the meaning of what it means to be truly adored, satisfied, and beautifully stunning in midst of everything the world views as mundane and commonplace. So if you want to live an extraordinary life, then listen now to explore Jesus’ plan for transforming ordinary people.

When the Holy Spirit begins the work of emptying your heart or your life of things that are getting in the way of holy transformation, it can feel like a crushing blow. We often assume that God’s calling on our lives should include the use of what we’re good at or have the skills to do. But a story from the Gospel of Luke about the apostle Peter reveals that God often asks us to lay aside the very talents and experiences we thought were so valuable in order to prepare for something even better. Peter learns that being emptied by Jesus is just as much of a miracle as being filled by Him, and so can we. You're invited to explore what it means to let Jesus empty your net and why it will likely happen many times throughout your life.

If you grew up being told that you had to achieve certain objectives or obey a list of rules to be a Christian, your sense of duty or obligation to God may eclipse your desire for Him… just to be with Him, just to know Him. I know, because I’ve been in that place too. Rather than hungering for Him, in the past, I have denied myself to please Him. Being a true follower of Jesus is not about obligations, burdensome disciplines, or formulas, but rather living each day with an aim of finding satisfaction in Him and pleasure in His presence. After struggling with legalism for years and even walking away from God for a season, I found freedom in choosing desire over duty. It has been 33 years since John Piper first released his groundbreaking book Desiring God, and like so many other believers, that book has changed the trajectory of my life and helped me find freedom from the chains of legalism. So whether you’re in a season of deep satisfaction or wandering in a passionless desert right now, I think there’s something in this message for everyone because we can never get too close to Jesus. We can never exhaust our hunger for Him. So I invite you to listen now as we explore what it means to desire God, how to cultivate our desire even when we don’t feel it, and why it is more important than anything else in life.

One of the most difficult and least practiced things God asks every believer to do is to love each other completely. Fully. Not just a half-way, happy, feel-good, social love. Gritty, down-in-the-trenches love is what Jesus practiced, and He wants us to go there with Him. Even when it’s uncomfortable. Complete love requires us to put ourselves, our pride, and our own comfort in jeopardy for the sake of helping another become what God has created him or her to be in His Kingdom. Listen now to explore the need for -- and the keys to -- offering and receiving Godly criticism.

Whether you secretly struggle with envy or simply cannot be still while waiting on God to bring about a much-needed change, discontentment can lurk in every corner of your heart. Yet, Jesus calls us to be at peace — in other words, to be satisfied — in Him in all situations and seasons of life. But how do we cultivate that kind of trust in His timing to bring His best, when our own evaluation of our situation screams for so much more, right now and not in the distant unknown? Fortunately, we have both Scripture and the wisdom of brave believers who have come before us to give us some practical ways to experience more contentment in our hearts. Listen now to discover 10 keys to cultivating a soul-level satisfaction in Jesus.

Nothing about us or what we do is small to God. It all matters to Him. But the great news is Jesus will take care of sweating the small stuff for us. Only He can do it the right way. However, we have to stop using excuses to prevent His Spirit from penetrating, revealing, and dealing with any little things that get in the way of being fully used for His glory. So if you’re ready to discover what the Bible has to say about sweating the small stuff and how transformative the answers could be in your life, then listen now to explore one of the most helpful, yet most often misused expressions in our culture today… even among followers of Jesus.

Desperation of some sort lurks within all of us. We just sometimes cover it up with our own resources, remedies, talents, skills, ambition, and even our dreams. But healing comes when we finally learn to grab ahold of our eternal identity in Christ, versus who and what we are suffering from right now. No matter what you kind of healing you long for, listen now to explore God’s plan for your healing and why your hope for it should never fade.

Turning to God in our moments of need is often comprised of spiritual disciplines that feel comfortable in our solitude. Prayer is powerful. Meditating on the Word is life-changing. But we often miss out on one of the most immediately effective weapons in our arsenal — singing praise to God. Contrary to what many of us think, praise is not the icing on the cake following a good sermon. It’s not only a reaction to God’s blessings. And it’s definitely not meant to be a routine on Sundays or mere background music to our lives. Praise is a no-kidding, get-serious weapon to fight a myriad of spiritual problems within our hearts, in the world around us, and against the very forces of evil that want to destroy our souls. If you typically reserve out-loud singing for Sundays or would never dream of bursting into song all by yourself, then listen now to enter a whole new realm of spiritual reality. Once you go there, you’ll never want to live without it again.

Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” When Jesus told the disciples that they needed to become like little children, He was implying far more than having humility and surrendering to God’s authority. We have to be willing to yield the canvas of our lives to the Master Artist Himself to fulfill the promise of Ephesians 2:10, which says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” With childlike faith, our spiritual eyes also become new again, allowing us to see the unseen… and giving us the ability to see the masterpiece He is making of our lives. If you want to draw closer to God, using your imagination in these three ways can help.
