Is It Finished for Our Relationships?

By: Shari Thomas on Saturday December 20, 2014

relationships

I love Christmas in the City! That is, until I begin to think of where everyone is going to sleep. This isn’t the hardest part of apartment living though. It’s the clutter, the small spaces, the noise and lack of privacy. Combining these with the typical familial dynamics most of us experience during the holidays, it could be a recipe for disaster. My first thought goes to what I can do to eliminate stress and keep life running smoothly. But then I stop and consider how Christ’s finished work on the cross impacts my relationships, especially with my family.

Sometimes Christians need an attack of sanity. In the middle of all the religious nonsense, cliches and superficial stuff, we need to be reminded that there really is a God who loves us and bends down low to walk among his children. This message from Steve may just do it for you.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, it’s easy to focus on the baby in the manger and forget that he grew up to be the greatest man who ever lived. Watch this video series from Pete Alwinson and you’ll see that part of what made Jesus so great is that he gives his greatness to anyone who wants it. Now, that’s one heck of a Christmas present!

Do you sometimes have trouble deciding between what is important and what isn’t? I think I could make that decision if everybody would just leave me alone…but they won’t.

Dance of the Dirty, Rotten Sinners - Chad West

God forgave us so that our sin is no longer the issue. We no longer have the demand of impossible rules to earn the favor of God, it was given to us freely by Christ. So what makes us so prideful? Is it because we can’t accept that it’s all free? Is it because we feel better thinking we’ve contributed? Believing spirituality is as easy as wearing nice things to a church service.

Steve’s Devotional - Don’t Block the Light

steve's devotional

I suspect that, if the innkeeper had known the whole story, he would have made room in his inn. If he was savvy in marketing, he could have made a buck or two on it. If he really knew, he could have created a “Jesus Suite” and advertised it in the newspapers…maybe even put up a bronze plaque that read: “Jesus was born here.”

steve's sermons

The Bible can be a frustrating book, especially when the religious manipulators use the “law enforcement texts” to keep us in line. The mother of all those texts is Jesus’ parable of the talents; a favorite of fundraisers, Sunday school teachers and guilt-trippers everywhere. Well, no more. This message from Steve will set you free!

Christianity Is for the Weak

By: Erik Guzman on Thursday December 11, 2014

Christianity is for the weak. God himself took on helpless, human flesh… a baby in a barn. The creator and sustainer of all life depended on us to change his diapers. He suffered the rejection of his own people, his closest friends’ betrayal, and then he died a humiliating death at the hands of a brutal government. But that’s not the end of the story.
