Being Merciful is not usually a natural thing for us. Yet, it's part of our identity as a Christian. Romans 12:1-2 teaches us that because God is merciful, we need to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice. In this sermon we discuss how Paul challenges the church in Rome to live out their faith in view of God's mercy. It means being a living sacrifice. The problem is, the word "sacrifice" itself indicates death. Yet being a living sacrifice is holy and pleasing to God. Join us as we seek to better understand God through this important passage.

What would motivate someone to break out in to spontaneous praise? In this sermon from Romans 9-11 we examine what makes us a people of praise. When we understand MERCY we want to PRAISE. The Jews and the Gentiles in Paul's day were both recipients of mercy. In fact, neither had a right to say they did anything to be saved. Mercy should spark a change in us. An attitude change. A perspective change. A heart change. And it should bring us to a point of praise. Is praise our default? Find out in this sermon.

"For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them." (Matthew 18:20) No doubt we've heard the worship leader say this at some big event. For good reason! It's great to know God is with us! O ne problem. What if this verse isn't about worship at all? In this sermon, Dylan unpacks what this verse is actually about. Hint: Next time the worship leader quotes this verse ask yourself, "Who's getting kicked out of church today?"

Series: Together For The World
This sermon from Acts 3 shows the importance of worshipping together. Worship is a lifestyle. Worship is about sharing Jesus everywhere we go with everyone we come in contact with. Peter and John worshipped by sharing Jesus and watching the Holy Spirit heal a paralytic. Then, in front of the same people who killed Jesus, they boldly proclaimed Christ. Finally, they REPORTED on the things God had done when they arrived with the other believers. Together, they prayed for boldness, to continue proclaiming Christ even in the face of persecution.

Series: Simply Jesus
What are we willing to give Jesus? And that's really the point of our end times study. If it takes us any place else than humility and any other place than loving Jesus, I think we're in the wrong place."
