Pressure & Perspective

Jesus was a master at living under pressure with a sense of peace inside. If you read his biography, it's amazing because he is always under incredible pressure that would crush most of us. He has people pulling at him all the time. There are constant interruptions with very little personal privacy or personal space. He has to get into a boat and row out in the water just to keep from people pushing on him. He's ridiculed and criticized at every turn, but he lives out of this quiet center in his soul. He refused to be pressured into being somebody that he wasn't. We all know about pressure. The question is, "How do you find peace in the midst of pressure?"

Finish the Work: In This Together

It's nearly impossible to read the Bible without seeing how much the Scripture speaks about money and possessions. Well over two-thousand verses deal with it. Jesus talked about money and possessions more than He did about anything except The Kingdom of God. He gave thirty-eight parables; nineteen of them had some kind of economic context. So, you have to ask the question, of all the things that God could have put in the Bible and spoken about, why did He choose to speak about money and possessions more than just about anything? Well obviously, it’s really important to God. And a lot of us need help in this area. Money has a tremendous potential for good, as well as a tremendous potential for evil. Ultimately, money has a way of capturing our hearts. Pastor Sam Shaw walks us through II Corinthians 8:10 through 9:5, showing how you can summarize everything the Bible says about money and possessions down to two things.

Finish the Work: By His Poverty We Became Rich

It's human nature to start something and not finish it. As the two-year anniversary of the Reach 901 launch quickly approaches, we're briefly interrupting our series on 1 Peter to remind ourselves that we have one year left between now and next April to meet our goal. Lead Pastor Sam Shaw dives into II Corinthians 8:1-11; a passage where the apostle Paul spoke to the church about finishing what they had started. Paul writes to them and says, let me show you what generosity looks like, and what giving joyfully, sacrificially, voluntarily, enthusiastically, and personally really means.

Good Friday: The Cross

There is nothing about the cross that says "winning", "victory", or "happiness". It was designed as the most painful and longest suffering way to die. So why did the early Christians adopt the cross as their symbol, eventually becoming the most recognizable symbol in the world? Lead Pastor Sam Shaw walks us through seven truths about a cross-centered life.
