The apostle Paul knew something of God's compassion. It shaped his past, empowered his present ministry, and reached all people. When he describes God's compassion (i.e., mercy, kindness) to Paul, he assumes Timothy, too, will take it and pay it forward. And so should we.

Passage: Job 38:1-42:6
Series: God 101
Duration: 41 mins 56 secs
As children we learn to sing "Our God is so big. Our God is so mighty. There's nothing our God cannot do." Then we grow up and face suffering. Suddenly God seems small, impotent, uncaring. The story of Job reminds us of how big God is even in the face of our suffering.

Our struggles reveal our need for salvation. In some form or another, we all want freedom, release, salvation. While we cannot secure it for ourselves, we can turn to God, our Redeemer. The exodus story not only shows his redeeming power but establishes his people as his prized possession

Passage: John 8:12-59
Series: God 101
Duration: 43 mins 25 secs
God is our Father. Jesus knew Him intimately and eternally as such. Thus we allow him to define the terms of fatherhood. While this is hard for those who have distant, abusive, or deceased fathers, we cannot avoid the metaphor. And when we understand all that is wrapped into the fatherhood of God, we cannot help but feel cared for by Him.

The churches in Revelation dealt with timeless problems. The church of Sardis struggled with an identity crisis. God sees through their religious act; He knows their spirits need renewal. As do ours. This message encourages us to find our true name in God.

One of life's hardest lessons is giving up our goals, letting go of our expectations, releasing our grip on our dreams. Our ways will not always come to pass. God's way will. And when our will collides with God, his will win. The prayer of concession helps us deny ourselves and submit to Him. Fortunately, His way is better.

Passage: Ezra 9:1-15
Duration: 42 mins 19 secs
Confession feels like a dirty word. And, in a way, it is because it admits the guilt we bear for our wrongful deeds and attitudes. Ezra the priest made confession for the people who returned from exile (454 BC). He lamented the mixed marriages of his people, knowing their religious devotion would likely suffer as it had in the past. Ezra's confession teaches about God's compassion and our culpability. It encourages us to take time to lay bare our souls before God.

Praise comes naturally when we talk about things we love. We praise our kids, spouses, and sports teams. We praise our company, accomplishments, and delicious foods. We praise what we love because we want to share the joy with others. Do we do this in prayer? Do we do this with God? Hear how David teaches prayer as celebration; you'll want to join him!

Solomon dedicated the Temple (a twenty-year building project) with a prayer. And he wanted the Temple to serve as a House of Prayer. It was a place where God's people and foreigners could recommit themselves to God. Prayers of commitment, whether big decisions or daily choices, mark our path and fuel our progress as God's people.

Prayer is a two-way conversation. Us and God. God and us. We talk and listen. We share and hear. Except, too often we approach prayer as a monologue and laundry list for our Father in Heaven. Abraham serves as a model for prayer as conversation, teaching us that awareness, honesty, and asking matters.
