Four Chair Discipling – Spending Time with New Believers
John 1
The Disciples of Jesus had a lot to learn if they were going to follow Jesus. This is true for all of us. Before we followed Jesus, we followed something else and learned something else. We are all disciples of something. Following Jesus results in many changes the combine to define a “new life”.

    The Bottom Line
    Colossians 1:17-23
    Believers have been given a tremendous task. Paul refers to it, somewhat cryptically, as the ministry of reconciliation. This ministry is not a gift, it is a task, a work, an effort but more importantly, it's not actually about you. The ministry of reconciliation - this task that we have been given - it begins with Christ and it ends with Christ. If we realize that reconciliation is a work of Christ, it will probably help the way our culture relentlessly, doggedly argues about everything. This Sunday we will kick off a 3-part series on the Ministry of Reconciliation.

    Four Chair: A Way of Discipleship
    Luke 6:39-40
    Several statements in scripture direct us to follow the example of Jesus and how He lived and trained His disciples. Today, people emphasize that Jesus was some sort of Social Justice Warrior (SJW). While He was concerned with social issues, He also left us an example so that you could follow in His steps.

    Building Sacred Space
    Ezra 2:68-70
    God did not command His people to build a temple. It was the conviction of David out of the gratitude of his heart. As it turned out, Solomon actually built the temple. This temple was destroyed because Israel lost track of why it was built in the first place.

    The 5 Signs of Openness To The Gospel
    Luke 19:1-10
    It might be thought that in these times, people are not open to hearing the gospel. The truth is, people are always looking for truth, for something better. The media narrative about Christianity is negative, but people are able to put that in the background if they see an accurate portrayal of the living Christ (in His people) and their openness is connected with a message of truth.

    The Man and The Man
    Genesis 4:3-10
    This, the final relationship we will explore in Genesis, is the one between us. What was Cain's problem? We almost think it's too obvious, murder; but there's more going on here than murder. Instead of helping his brother know God, or at least enjoying his brother's success, Cain was consumed with jealousy and hate, and ultimately killed Abel. When confronted by God, he dismissed the whole episode with Am I my brother's keeper? The answer, of course, is a resounding YES. We will explore this more together.

    I’m Ashamed They’re Not Ashamed
    Genesis 3:7
    You can't miss it - in Genesis, there's a lot of skin in the story. What gives? It's like the Bible goes out of the way to talk about when Adam and Eve were naked, and when they were clothed. Why does God spend so much time addressing this aspect of Genesis?

    The Man and The Creator
    Genesis 3:1-7
    There's a phrase we use, the forbidden fruit to refer to the original sin of Adam and Eve. What that sin represents is something bigger than a dinner choice. God created everything and he says that life is lived to it's fullest in a certain way, but will we believe him?

    The Man and Woman
    Genesis 2:18-23
    Last week, we took a look at the first of four relationships in the creation account: The relationship between man and creation. This week we will continue in Genesis, and look at the second keystone relationship: man and woman. This relationship has been the keystone of human civilization since before recorded history. Communities, neighborhoods, and even nations have been leveraged through fundamental relationship. Even now, as our national culture grows to resent it; the relationship between a man and woman has been a foundation of who we are as human beings. We will explore this together this morning.

    The Focus of Faith
    Hebrew 12:1-13
    The writer of Hebrews gives a crowning touch to his lofty discussion on the topic of faith. People of faith are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses who were able to keep their eyes focused on the goals of their faith. They haven’t receive the ultimate goal yet. They will receive it, when we do, if we keep our eyes on Jesus our King.
