Why Love Matters Most
In this week's message from our John series, Troy discusses sections of chapter 13, with an emphasis on the "new" command from Jesus to love one another. As we discover , the command to love each other is not new, in and of itself; what appears to be new is the way we are to love, namely, as Jesus has loved us.

    That’s All I Know (and That’s Enough)
    As we discover from the story of Jesus healing a man who was born blind in John chapter 9, you cannot argue with the genuine, significant change that God produces in peoples’ lives. It’s like going from blindness to sight, and it’s no less miraculous.

    A Faith from Here to Eternity
    In today's passage from our 1 John series, where Jesus emphasizes the necessity of being "born again," we discover that to see Jesus and His truth means more than observing what He did or hearing what He said; it means a change of identity. And our new birth changes everything. Our old lives are gone and we learn to walk in a new life. NOTE: The last few minutes of sermon audio are lost due to a technical difficulty.

    The Only One Who Knows Our Hearts
    Continuing in our series through the Gospel of John, Troy explains that although Jesus knows every single one of our thoughts, words, and actions, He died on the cross for us anyway. He took the punishment that we deserved and put it on Himself. And it’s critical that we understand the love and grace that God has shown us, despite our brokenness, because we need to show love and grace to other people, despite their brokenness.

    Give Me a Break (or Help Me Escape)
    Series: Standalone
    Sometimes, we need physical rest and the chance to focus on God and gain spiritual strength. Other times, there's a mental or emotional rest that we need just as much, if not more, than physical rest. And that's when we need to get out of our own heads and just do something.
