The church is changing, and God has called us to put new wine into new wineskins. The church’s old wineskins are about the hardening of institutional arteries and control. However, the cross of Christ has removed that leverage. Join Steve as he teaches from Matthew 9:9-17 and drink from God’s freeing fountain of unconditional love, forgiveness and contagious laughter.

grace 101 steve's sermons

Because of Jesus’ finished work, God’s totally cool with us no matter what. We’re free, really free! One of the ways we can use that freedom is to, like the Apostle Paul said, become all things to all men, serving them to free them too. But before we can be all things to all men, we have to listen and taste the salt of their tears. Here’s a short video from Steve about it.

If you are in Christ, you are not commanded to be a new creation, you are a new creation. That means that you don’t have to do a bunch of religious stuff to become what you already are. The problem is, we’ve gotten so religious we don’t know what the real thing looks like. This message from Steve will help.

grace 101 steve's sermons

When you announce to the world that you’re a Christian, you’re not saying to them, “I’m good and you can be too” or “I’m saved and you’re going to hell.” We’re announcing to the world that we’re needy and screwed-up sinners. So where did we lose the way? Watch Steve talk about the shocking nature of grace.

One of the craziest things Christians believe is that if we do it right, if we’re good and nice, and if we study the Bible and pray enough, then everything will be wonderful. We’ll join hands with Jesus and walk off into the sunset together. That’s nuts! It’s dangerous and it’s just not true. Watch this message from Steve for the real deal.

Scripture teaches that we’ll get anything we pray for… as long as we ask for things within God’s will. (You can find that divine fine print after the asterisk in 1 John 5:14-15.) Besides allowing God to ignore all those requests for Italian sports cars, that little nugget of truth begs a question: What exactly is God’s will? Watch this message from Steve to find out.
