She Never Had a Warm Meal
Series: Standalone
For this year's Mother's Day message, Troy explains how great moms demonstrate the agape love that’s not an emotion, but a decision. It’s the deliberate love that we choose to show, no matter what, and it’s demonstrated through action. It’s choosing to disregard ourselves purely for the benefit of others. He also encourages each one of us to obey God and follow the example of great moms by growing in the areas of love, grace, acceptance, and forgiveness.

    Real Love is Meaning What You Say
    Continuing in our 1 John series, Troy shares what the Bible tells us, that if we say we know Jesus, but do not obey Him, we are liars and the truth is not in us. On the other hand, when we do obey Jesus, we can be sure that we know Him, and have fellowship with Him. It's not that the more we obey, the more God loves us; however, our love for God and our willingness to do what He asks of us go hand-in-hand.

    Proof of Light in the Darkness
    To kick off our new series through 1 John, Troy reminds us that we need to love other people who follow Jesus, but we also need to know that our love for one another is our best witness to people in the world. Troy also reassures us that there was proof that Jesus really became a man, because John and others experienced Him with their senses, including their sight, hearing, and touch. In addition, John shows us that God is light, not the light, or a light, but light itself.

    Keep Going (We’re Almost There)
    Series: Standalone
    In this standalone message, Troy encourages us not to give up on our faith (or anything that's important to us). When we're discouraged, and even feeling as though we're in a pit of despair, it's worth it to continue on because our faith affects other people, our standing with God, and our story.

    A Wasted Life: When Hope is Not Enough
    For this year's Resurrection Sunday message, Troy encourages us with the fact that even though we may need to experience what it’s like to have little or no hope, we can also discover that Easter is about more hope than we can handle. The power that rose Jesus from the dead not only changes our lives right now, but also gives us an incredible hope beyond the grave, where eternity is far beyond anything we can imagine.

    Tapping into the Power of Prayer
    In the final installment of our series through James, Troy reminds us that although God can certainly do whatever He wants (He is God after all), He chooses to involve us and partner with us. And as we share our praises, needs, and requests with Him, we should keep in mind that prayer is not about us, but about the object of our faith, which is God.

    Trusting God When You Can’t Do It Yourself
    Series: Standalone
    In this week's standalone message, Troy talks about the fact that God has made thousands of promises to us, and it’s impossible for Him not to keep His promises. This means we can trust that He will do just that; in fact, that’s really what faith is all about: it’s believing that God is going to keep His Word.

    A Bad Investment: It’s Not All Yours
    In this week's message from our series through James, Troy reminds us of what we learn from the first five verses of Chapter 5, that riches can become a problem depending on the manner in which wealth is acquired, the spirit that wealth can potentially produce in the heart, and the way in which the wealth is used. Through this message, we are challenged to do something practical to love our neighbors and be known as the people who love the ones that Jesus loves.

    Don’t Treat Plan A Like It’s Plan B
    Continuing in our series through the letter from James, Troy explains that while there's nothing wrong with making plans, there is a right way and a wrong way to plan. We should set goals, make commitments, work hard, and never give up, but we don’t want to do those things in a way that leaves God out of it.

    The Problem with Looking Out for Number One
    For this week's installment in our series through James, Troy shares the biblical truth that our conflicts take place when our self-interests become our number one priority. This means that to resolve conflicts, we must repent of our sinful selfishness and humble ourselves before God and others.
