Duration: 43 mins 51 secs
We spend too much of our lives working not to enjoy the spoils of our labor. Unfortunately, much of our work feels like toil; much of our rest devolves into leisure. We fail to delight daily in our labor because no play, low pay, and lack of personality bleed from our work its meaning. The good news is this: God works in and through us; we must learn to seize each day.

Pleasure: the word speaks for itself. God created us as pleasure-seeking creatures. Unfortunately, we have not learned how to align discipleship with desire. We keep following Jesus as a matter of intellect and maintain low-grade guilt for enjoying much of the world. Pleasure for its own sake, says Q in Ecclesiastes, is an idol and dead end. Pleasure as a pointer to God, however, is a guiltless good. So desire God and enjoy life.

We live in the information age. Media channels endless streams of data in our direction--some meaningful, some useless. The author Ecclesiastes noted how wearisome earthly wisdom and knowledge could be. However, when knowledge is applied and points to Jesus, it proves valuable.

So what? Who cares? Why bother? What's the point? If you've ever asked these questions, and felt the futility of life weighing on you, then Ecclesiastes will speak to you. This introductory sermon implores us to resume the search for eternal worth, rather than striving after the wind.

Good parents set boundaries, show love, model good behaviors, and teach lessons. Godly parents do all that AND take their kids to church. Actually, there is quite a bit more involved when looking at Deuteronomy 6. Ultimately, godly parents leave a legacy of love.

Passage: James 1:19-27
Duration: 55 mins 33 secs
Faith is practice, not simply principle. One of the greatest ways to learn theology is to live it. The book of James reflects a "Just Live It" theology. This sermon takes an in depth look at James 1:19-27.

All endings lead to new beginnings. The final chapter of the Bible is no different. Only this ending, this "happily ever after" goes on for eternity. God balances the scales, cleans the slates, vanquishes sins, and sets shalom to reign. The new heavens and new earth are the glorious destination of our earthly pilgrimmage. God gives us glimpses here and now, and calls us to enjoy the journey.

The word "church" surfaces many emotional reactions. Some consider it boring, others a benign social gather, and a growing segment views church as bad for society. In God's Big Story, however, church comprises the fifth chapter and describes God's Christ-like, mission-driven, spirit-empowered, diverse, virtuous, and imperfect people. For the church to excel in her vocation, she must reawaken to the work of the Holy Spirit within her.

Jesus Christ came as the hero of God's Big story. The Son of God perfected the task Israel failed to do: live as a light among the nations. He also died as a perfect sacrifice, and won a crushing victory over death, sin, and Satan. His finished work should inspire the ongoing work of his followers.

Chapter 3 of God's Big Story tells of God's long-suffering relationship with His people, Israel. Covenant is the official term for the way God related, a friendship he initiated, sustained, and refined. The first half of the message summarizes the Old Testament. The second half teases out implications, especially the role God's people play in reflecting him.
