Josh shares from another parable in Matthew 13 today that can create a tension within us when we read it. Jesus is describing a sower who sows good seed in his field, and an enemy who comes in the night and sows weeds in that same field. We -- like the disciples, I imagine -- are tempted to get caught wondering whether we are the wheat or the weeds…
 
Josh shares about the familiar parable from Matthew 13 about the sower who casts seed on a variety of soils and what happens to the seeds sown in those soils. We have a tendency to view this parable as the "Parable of the Soils," getting caught up in identifying which soil describes our spiritual walk. But Jesus is telling the "Parable of the Sower…
 
Josh shares a message from Romans 7 where Paul is talking about how sin lies near when he tries to do good. Sin is not a word we like to discuss. We aren't comfortable with the reality that there is something at play that interferes with our lives. But if we can't name the sin in our lives -- the things that need the grace we like to talk about -- …
 
Josh shares from Jeremiah 28 about competing words from the Lord declared by the prophets Hananiah and Jeremiah. Hananiah is declaring what the people want to hear. Jeremiah is declaring a word from the Lord that is difficult to hear, but he is the picture of ongoing rootedness with God. The people are left with a question that we still must face t…
 
Josh provides an update on regathering, and Justin Boggs talks to us about praise and worship. Justin explains that worship is how we live. Praise and worship help us connect our hearts with the heart of the Father. Romans 12:1; Hebrews 13:15-16; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18; Psalm 63:1-8; Psalm 86: 9-10; Matthew 12:34; 1 Peter 2:9. Justin shared a quote …
 
Josh looks at Matthew 28 and Luke 10 considering Jesus' instruction for us to go into the world and the importance of listening to those we interact with in our neighborhoods. Instead of dictating what is needed or expecting people to come receive what we have, we can sit as a guest at the mercy of others, learn what is needed, and follow the Spiri…
 
Josh looks at the Pentecost story in Acts 2 today, and we see what can happen when we wait on God and step out in boldness when the Holy Spirit prompts us. We cannot see Acts 2 without the waiting disciples of Acts 1. The Church involves both the Spirit and the spiritual practices. The Church is about both freedom and structure. If we will wait on …
 
Josh looks at John 17 and Acts 1 today, and we see Jesus praying for the disciples to "be one" as Jesus and the Father are one. Before His ascension, Jesus tells the disciples to return to the upper room to wait. Jesus understands that the unity they must forge will come in the waiting together before the Holy Spirit comes. In the waiting, they wil…
 
Looking at John 14 and Acts 17, Jordan shares about how Paul, guided by the Holy Spirit, presented the gospel to the people of Athens. In the pluralistic society of Athens, Paul took the time to observe the people and their search for meaning in the array of ideas and philosophies they regularly discussed. Paul encouraged them that their search, if…
 
As we step into the month of May focusing on listening prayer, Josh looks at passages in 1 Peter and John 14 which illustrate who Jesus is and His invitation to us to trust Him -- even when He does not appear to be who we think Jesus is. Like the disciples, we expect Jesus to behave in a certain way and when He does not, we find ourselves in a spac…
 
Josh shares a message from John 10 where we see Jesus trying to explain how He operates. He is a shepherd -- a shepherd who draws us in to bring us into abundant life. The presence of the shepherd makes the difference in life. We need to learn the shepherd's voice. We need to recognize the shepherd's character when He speaks to us. Jesus is still s…
 
Josh looks at the story of the two disciples on the Emmaus Road from Luke 24. We see in this story how Jesus interacts with us. He asks us what we're thinking or feeling. He listens and is present with us. We often don't recognize Him. He explains things that our heart knows to be true, and when we invite Him in, our eyes are opened. And we continu…
 
Josh walks us through the second half of John 20 where Jesus appears to the disciples and Thomas. In both scenes, we see Jesus entering rooms where people are hiding out of fear. Jesus doesn't berate them for hiding; He displaces their fear by simply saying, "Peace be with you." Jesus wants to enter the rooms where we are hiding to draw us deeper i…
 
Josh walks us through the Easter story from John 20, and we are again faced with the question: "Is this story true?" We see Mary who was certain that Jesus was dead and weeping that this journey was over. Then, Jesus calls her by name, and she understands what is happening and goes to share this gospel with the disciples. John had run to the tomb a…
 
On Palm Sunday, Josh walks us through the familiar passage in Matthew of Jesus sending two disciples to retrieve a donkey and a colt for His procession into Jerusalem where the crowd shouts "Hosanna" as Jesus enters the city. We see that Jesus comes not as the king the people in the crowd expect or desire. In this time of social distancing, maybe y…
