Suffering and Glory (Romans 8:12-28)

It is hard many times to see that suffering and glory have strong relationship in our lives. Biblically, there is a beautiful relationship. Today, Paul reminds us that the victory Jesus won was not over suffering, but rather through suffering.

No Condemnation (Romans 8:1-11)

Romans 8 is one the greatest single chapters in our Bibles. Paul is beginning to fulling develop his statements in chapter 8. We, the people of God, are to be people no longer in dwelt by sin, but rather the Spirit.

The Dimensions of Salvation (Romans 6:22-23)

John Wesley saw three dimensions of salvation in Romans 6:22. 1) Freed from sin 2) Freed from the plague of sin (sanctification) 3) Eschatologically free from all evidence of sin (eternal life).

United with Christ (Romans 6:1-11)

Paul draws from his understanding of the Old Testament as he writes to the Romans. The Exodus is a central story in the lives of the people of God. God set his people free from the slavery of Egypt. Through Christ, God set his people free from the slavery of sin. Today, we explore these parallels.

Because of God's Love (Romans 5:1-5)

Romans 5 reminds us to "rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope..."

Righteousness of God (Romans 3:21-31)

We are in darkness and we desperately need the light.

The Exchange of Truth (Romans 1:25)

One of the core issues in our lives is summed up in a statement in Romans 1:25. "...they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator..." How have we, as people created by our Father, worshipped and served the creature rather than our Father?

Not Ashamed (Romans 1:16-17)

We began a new series today on the most theologically rich books in the Bible- Romans. The beauty of Romans is unbelievably deep and complex. Join us this summer as we journey in Radical Grace.

"I have seen the Lord" (John 20:1-18)

It is Easter Sunday and a time to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. Join us this morning as we remember the resurrection through the baptism of a new believer.

Joining the Celebration (Luke 19:28-40)

The tragedy of the day is that the people are half right. He did come as God’s Messiah. But was He the Messiah they wanted? Or, is He the Messiah you wanted?

"When he came to his senses..." (Luke 15:11-32)

The Prodigal Son is a great parable. Many times, we overlook the importance of the other son. He is not one that we usually identify with, but digger a little deeper into the story reminds us that sometimes we have to choose between being right and being in relationship.

Short-Roping (Psalm 125)

Just as Zion cannot be shaken because of its relation to the Lord, so the righteous will not be shaken because of their relation to the Lord. Are we tying ourselves to the Lord?

Alert to the Master's Commands (Psalm 123)

ALN TNT- Rev. Shawna Songer Gaines

Today, we are joined by Trevecca Nazarene University's Chaplin, Shawna Songer Gaines.

Where Does our Help Come From? (Psalm 121)

We begin a new series for the new year with the Songs of Ascents (Psalm 120-135). Today we ask the question, "Where does our help come from?"

The Promise of the Arrival (Matthew 2:13-23)

The nativity on your mantle portrays the coming of our Savior in the perfect setting. The beauty of Christmas is the reminder that the story doesn't end at the nativity. Jesus entered a world that was lost and hopeless and become our light and hope.
