Walking WIth Jesus – Sinking
Matthew 14:22-36 - Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. After dismissing the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. Well into the night, he was there alone. Meanwhile, the boat was already some distance from land, battered by the waves, because the wind was against them. Jesus came toward them walking on the sea very early in the morning. When the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost!” they said, and they cried out in fear. Immediately Jesus spoke to them. “Have courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter answered him, “command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” And climbing out of the boat, Peter started walking on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the strength of the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand, caught hold of him, and said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those in the boat worshiped him and said, “Truly you are the Son of God.” When they had crossed over, they came to shore at Gennesaret. When the men of that place recognized him, they alerted the whole vicinity and brought to him all who were sick. They begged him that they might only touch the end of his robe, and as many as touched it were healed.

    Walking With Jesus – Surrender
    This week we are beginning a new series titled, “Walking with Jesus.” We will be following the life of Peter as he walked with Him. You may say, “Why Peter, he was an imperfect man?” But that is exactly why! Peter lived a life of “ups and downs” for God just as we do. Peter had successes for God, but he also had failures. As we study what Peter learned from Jesus as he walked with Him, I pray that we would also walk with Jesus and allow Him to teach us through His word.

    Not Like Man
    Series: general
    Numbers 23:19 - God is not a man, that he might lie, or a son of man, that he might change his mind. Does he speak and not act, or promise and not fulfill?
     
    James 1:16-18 - Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. By his own choice, he gave us birth by the word of truth so that we would be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

    Who Do You Say I Am: Mary Magdalene
    Mary Magdalene never got over her encounters with Jesus. From the first moment Jesus rescued her from the seven demons who lived inside her and tormented her, to those six hours being near Jesus as He suffered and died on the cross, to the moment on the first Easter Sunday morning when Jesus spoke to her after He rose from the dead: Mary Magdalene’s life was changed forever by Jesus. Once a person encounters Jesus, that person’s life is never the same again. And the question we are left with, that Jesus, Himself asks, is “Who do you say that I am?”

    Who Do You Say I Am: Claudia
    Only one solitary verse in all the Bible mentions the wife of Pontius Pilate. Within those few words, her name is not even stated. Matthew’s gospel records her cited cameo in the crucial moments of Jesus’ trial that soon would determine his fate. Court is officially in session when an interruption breaks the concentration of the Roman governor, Pilate. Matthew 27:19 says, “While he was sitting on the judge’s bench, his wife sent word to him, ‘Have nothing to do with that righteous man, for today I’ve suffered terribly in a dream because of him.”’” That’s it. Nothing more is ever mentioned in all the pages of the Bible about Pilate’s wife.
    Who was this Claudia? What happened to her because of her dream? What was the source of her dream and how did she suffer from it? What did Claudia believe about Jesus? Who did she say Jesus was? No one truly knows the answers to these questions with certainty. What we do know is she had a dream, which so disturbed her emotionally and mentally, she had to do something even if it meant sacrificing her future.

    Who Do You Say I Am: Bartimaeus
    Bartimaeus and his blind friend most certainly had heard the news of Jesus’ healings. While they could not see, their other senses were keen to know what was happening around them. They could hear the commotion and the chatter from the crowd as Jesus made His way closer and closer toward them. At that moment they made a choice that would forever change their lives. They did all they could to be noticed by Jesus.

    Who Do You Say I Am: The Disciple
    In Matthew 16:15,  Jesus asked His disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" That is the most important question ever to be posed for all of humanity. Never will there be another question that rivals its gravity and consequence. Although we will face other questions of significance, no human being will ever be faced with a more poignant question with such eternal ramifications. Join us today as we unpack the significance of Jesus' exchange with His disciples at this time and at this particular location.

    Demolishing Strongholds
    Series: general
    The Apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, " For although we live in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh, since the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but are powerful through God for the demolition of strongholds. We demolish arguments and every proud thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to obey Christ." In this message we examine the context as well as the application of these words to our lives.
