Loving God through Simple Obedience
For this week's message from our 1 John series, Bud discusses the fact that our love for people is demonstrated by our love for God and our obedience to His commands. Sometimes we're even convicted by Scripture to do something we really don't want to do, but God always blesses us when we decide to follow Him no matter what.

    Words Matter: The Inside is the Outside
    In this week's message from our series through James, Real Faith in the Real World, Bud reminds us how important our words are and why we must control our tongues and use them only to encourage and build up others. Since people are made in the image of God, we should treat them (and speak to them) in ways that honor the One who created us.

    We’re In This Together (How Can I Help)?
    As Bud explains through this message from our Hanging on to Hope series, when the community of Jesus' followers is operating the way He dreamed it could work, there's nothing like it in the world. The church has incredible power and beauty when it works the way Jesus intended.

    Earning a Glowing Report Card
    Continuing in our series through Paul's letters to the Thessalonians, Bud reminds us how much reports matter. They can encourage or discourage. Sometimes they mean life or death. Most importantly, a good report can lead to opportunities for sharing the gospel and helping to influence where someone spends eternity.

    Keeping People at Arm’s Length
    For the second message in our series, Getting Rid of the Gorilla, Bud talks about those times when we need to create geographical and/or emotional distance from the people who have hurt us. However, he also encourages us not to keep people at arm's length forever, especially if our choices are stemming from an unforgiving heart.

    Learning From the Hall of Faith
    As part of our message series through the book of Hebrews, Bud shares some lessons we can learn from chapter 11, which is often called the "Hall of Faith." Even as we live our lives in this world today, we can put into practice the type of faith that has led so many people to trust God and follow Him. We can do this because "faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."

    Don’t Be a Baby! (Onward to Maturity)
    Continuing in our series through the book of Hebrews, Bud covers chapter 5 and draws a comparison between biological and spiritual maturity. When children are treated like children, it makes perfect sense, but when grown-ups still need to be dealt with as though they were children, there's something very wrong. In the same way, all of us who follow Jesus need to grow spiritually to the point that others need not treat us as infants in the faith.

    A Second Chance for Everyone
    Series: Standalone
    For our New Year’s message, Bud shares about some situations in life when we do (and don’t) get a second chance. One of these circumstances involves our forgiveness of other people who hurt us. Bud encourages us not only to forgive others, but also to consider what additional “second chance” opportunities we might have in the coming year.

    Do You Know About God, or Do You Know God?
    Series: All In
    Continuing in our All In series, Bud asks the question, “Do You Know About God, or Do You Know God?” Have you ever seen something secondhand instead of experiencing it firsthand? This happens in our relationship with God, too. Using the example of hiking the Grand Canyon, Bud encourages us to consider where in our lives we are “hugging the rim” when we should be heading down into the canyon.

    Tough Stuff: What God Has Called Men to Do
