Episode Date
Radical Grace
00:41:58

“Humility is birthed at the foot of the cross."

In the second week of our series ANCHOR, Pastor Ben Stuart brings a timely and important message about the radical grace of God. We are not only reconciled with God through the cross; the cross also restores relationships with each other. The gospel is not worth preaching if it does not have the power to break down the wall dividing ethnic groups. The grace of God is so radical that it makes enemies not just into friends but into a family.

At Passion City Church, we believe that because God has displayed the ultimate sacrifice in Jesus, our response to that in worship must be extravagant. It is our privilege, and our created purpose, to reflect God’s Glory to Him through our praise, our sacrifice, and our song.

What Matters Most to God
00:44:21

“He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30

This is a powerful statement from someone who understood what mattered most to God, and therefore what should matter most to us. But it’s hard, it’s difficult to wrap our minds why we have to decrease, and what that really means. Pastor Brad Jones kicks off a new series, ANCHOR, with a look at the life of John the Baptist, and what we can learn from this famous exchange between him and his followers to help us see not only what matters most to God, but what matters most to us as well.

Life is Hard — God is Good
00:39:40

Almost nothing is guaranteed, except for two things:

Life is Hard. God is Good.

That’s it; those are the two guarantees we’re walking away with today. The first one, life is hard, no one ever really had to teach us. The second one is a whole different story.

God is good… all the time.

So what happens when that truth faces off against real life? What happens when we are confronted with the truth that the story of Jesus-followers is a story of hardship? How do we reconcile the mountain of victory we’re standing on with the hardship the story of our spiritual lineage holds?

We embrace it and we look at the life of Paul.

Pain + Possibility
00:35:43

How we handle hardship could be the heroic thing inside of all of us. Just look at the life of King David:

David was anointed by God as a teenager, told he would be king in time. He played the harp for the king, killed the giant Goliath, became the head of the military and married the king’s daughter. David was the most famous person in the whole kingdom and beloved by everyone around him

Everyone except the king.

Join Pastor Ben Stuart as he breaks down how each of us can learn from the life of David how we can handle hard times in a way that leads us to a heroic life.With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p + 5p + 8p! Join us at https://passioncitychurch.com/online

What Now?
00:40:58

This probably isn't how you imagined your year would look. Chances are you didn't anticipate a global pandemic, a shelter-in-place order or having to spend each day wondering when things would return to the way they were. There was no plan for postponing your dream wedding, celebrating your grandson's birthday through a video call or mourning the loss of a loved one with far fewer people than they deserved.

You didn't ask for your situation, but you can turn the page on it.

Passion Daily: Psalm 23:1
00:04:31

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

Thanks for joining us for today’s Passion Daily. We hope these short Scripture reflections will lead you into a deeper relationship with Jesus. Leading us today through the book of PSALMS is our Washington D.C. City Pastor, Ben Stuart.

It's Okay to Freak Out
00:37:56

Even the heroes of our faith, men and women who walked with God for decades, had moments where they felt like they couldn’t go on. 

Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. Psalm 61:1-3 

David knew what it felt like to experience moments of desperation. If the man who conquered Goliath (with the help of God) as a small child found his heart growing faint at times, maybe we can say to ourselves: It's okay to freak out.

How Will We Make It?
00:34:58

These days are hard. They aren’t what we planned, and there’s no end in sight. So how are we supposed to not only live through these days but to live well in the midst of them?

The answer can be found in the book of Hebrews.

But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, (you came out of the blocks strong!) sometimes being publicly exposed to reproach and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one. Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.

Hebrews 10:32-36

Endurance, we need endurance.

Here’s the good news. You can have it.

So how do we gain the endurance we are going to need in order not only to endure the days ahead but to excel in them?

Where is God?
00:39:44

Where is God?

It's a valid question and one that no one should feel shame about asking. One of the wonderful attributes of God is that He isn't afraid of our questions. Our searching for God gives Him another chance to put His Glory and His overarching story on display.

Besides, this is hardly a new question.

Overwhelming? Yes.

Original? No.

It's the very same question that has bounced around the minds of believers and skeptics for thousands of years.

20 Inches to Mercy
00:41:19

What the world needs most today, what our cities and communities need most today, what we all need most today is a spiritual awakening. Here’s the good news.

It’s possible.

Right now, God is closer to you than you think.

How close?
 

Twenty inches. Twenty inches is all that separates you from, “then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

 

It’s the twenty inches between your knees and the ground. It’s assuming a position of kneeling before the mighty God and admitting that you need help. Twenty inches to go from death to life. Twenty inches that change your story from, “I was a victim of circumstance,” to, “I found Jesus, and He stood me up victorious.”

 

God is closer than you imagine today, and He’s calling you. Will you answer?

Why Christianity is Not a Crutch
00:30:20

This week Global Pastor Louie Giglio continues our VICTORY series with a message that is timely to the days we are living in. Teaching out of Mark 2:1-12 Pastor Louie reminds us of a few critical things:

 1. Our faith can move the heart of God and impact the eternal destiny of someone around us. 

2. The paralyzed man's problem was bigger than he thought. 

3. Jesus didn't offer a crutch. He healed him.

God’s Love For Strangers
00:34:11

Why does our love for God become service to a stranger? For the believer, why do we show love to those around us? Continuing the series, “Great Whys”, Pastor Ben Stuart challenges us with this: “He loves them. I love him. So I love them.” 

The simplicity is a “That We May” mindset — we move towards others in love, because God loves them, and we love God.

Like a sailor on turbulent seas, we need to look up and see the North Star: the fixed points in the sky whereby we might navigate the objective realities in life. We need the skill-set to know how to journey through life and how to select the right people to journey alongside. In this book we will chart a course through the four relational phases that the vast majority of human beings on the planet will pass through in their twenties: singleness, dating, engaged and married. In each of these phases, we will look at what eternal purposes should be pursued in each stage, and how to pursue them.

Like a sailor on turbulent seas, we need to look up and see the North Star: the fixed points in the sky whereby we might navigate the objective realities in life. We need the skill-set to know how to journey through life and how to select the right people to journey alongside. In this book we will chart a course through the four relational phases that the vast majority of human beings on the planet will pass through in their twenties: singleness, dating, engaged and married. In each of these phases, we will look at what eternal purposes should be pursued in each stage, and how to pursue them.

Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems
00:38:30

According to James Chapter 5, rich people should be sad -- but why? This week, Pastor Ben Stuart explains what James really means when he cautions the wealthy to watch where we place our value. The more we love money, the less we love people. At the end of the day, the issue isn’t about money at all, but about our hearts. When we see and experience the generosity of God, it changes our priorities and our posture to extend that generosity to others.

The Problem with Plans
00:42:54

Pastor Ben Stuart challenges us with James’ words on making plans for the future. When we know God, we should make plans from a place of humility and gratitude, viewing our future from the perspective of God’s grace!

 

Godly wisdom brings order out of chaos, and wisdom is shown in good conduct and humility. This week, Pastor Ben continues our study through the book of James by contrasting the pursuit of selfish ambition with the humble pursuit of Christ.

Faith and Works
00:49:36

Are we justified by faith alone? How do works fit into the picture? Is faith complete without works? What does Scripture say about it? Pastor Ben Stuart continues our series This Changes Everything with a helpful explanation of how to understand the tension in how faith and works relate to each other!

Oct 29, 2019
Faith and Favoritism
00:46:25

This week Pastor Ben Stuart continues our series This Changes Everything and walks us through what James has to say about partiality and favoritism in the church. For followers of Jesus, God has changed us from the inside out, and it changes how we treat people!

The Lie That Launches a Million Sins
00:45:40

How do we deal with temptation? Where does it come from? How does it work? How should we respond? All trials bring temptations, and part of persevering through trials is learning how to respond to them. Continuing the “This Changes Everything” series, Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us that while there are no perfect people, there is a perfect God, and He delights in us!

The Purpose of Pain
00:44:43

Pain is part of the human story. We all experience trials and suffering throughout our lives. Looking at James 1, Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us that even in the midst of trial and pain, we can look to Jesus for hope and purpose!

This Changes Everything
00:43:25

Kicking off a new series in the book of James, Pastor Ben Stuart encourages us with the truth that our identity determines our activity. It’s important to consider both the reality of Jesus rising from the dead and the reason for his resurrection. The reality confronts our minds, but the reason changes our hearts!

Why God Complicates Your Life
00:34:14
Have you ever wondered why your life doesn’t look the way you thought it would? Have you ever felt like you’re like the Israelites, wandering around in the desert with no apparent path to a destination? This week, Pastor Ben Stuart gives us three reasons why God doesn’t always give us what we want as we look in Exodus at the journey of the Israelites through the desert.

Engaged: How To Know That You Know
00:44:39
How do you know that you’ve met the person you’re supposed to spend your life with? What are things we should see in a relationship that give us this confidence? This week, continuing our Single, Dating, Engaged, Married series, Pastor Ben Stuart gives us specific things to look for as you evaluate whether or not a relationship should continue on to engagement
Jul 02, 2019
How to Date
00:50:35
“Dating is a process you go through, not a status you sit in.” Continuing our series Single, Dating, Engaged, Married, Pastor Ben Stuart challenges the way dating is viewed in our culture today and gives us 7 things to consider in the dating process.
Jun 25, 2019
Who to Date
00:52:51
“Singleness is for devotion; dating is for evaluation.” Pastor Ben Stuart continues our series on relationships this week with a message about dating. It is not a status we sit in — it is a process we walk through! Dating exists for the purpose of evaluating whether or not you are supposed to run alongside a person for the rest of your life. In the process of evaluation, Pastor Ben challenges us to consider how we view dating: do we look at it with a consumer mentality or a companion mentality?
Jun 18, 2019
Single
00:43:02
Kicking off our new series, Single, Dating, Engaged, Married, Pastor Ben Stuart dives into what the Scriptures have to say about singleness. We see that there is a purpose in the season of singleness, and we have to get a relationship with God right before we can get a relationship with a guy or girl right. Pastor Ben reminds us not to miss the benefits of the season we are in because we are pining away for the benefits of another season. “God has ordained a season of singleness not for us to fill it with distractions or career ambitions, but to pursue an undistracted devotion to Him.”
Jun 11, 2019
Forgive Us As We Forgive
00:45:34
“You can’t hold anger and love in your heart at the same time” We live in a culture where un-forgiveness is common. This week, Pastor Ben Stuart closes out the Lord’s Prayer series by challenging us with the truth that we can’t grip the gospel of grace but hold on to resentment at the same time. When we understand Christ’s forgiveness of us, that allows us to forgive others. The cross comforts us in the justice of God, and compels us in His love!
Jun 04, 2019
Not Forsaken — The Blessing
00:36:49
God is not a reflection of our Earthly father; He is the perfection of him. We are loved sons and daughters of a perfect Heavenly Father. So many of us come from broken family relationships, and God steps in the gap and restores what is broken, so that you wouldn’t have to live a day in your life without knowing that you are under the love and affection of a perfect Father who says “He is mine. She matters to me.” “He is a perfect Father, and the cross tells us that His heart is good and His arms are strong.”
May 28, 2019
Lead Us
00:43:12
"We are in a fight, but we have a Father." This week we continue the Lord’s Prayer series with a powerful word from Pastor Brad Jones about temptation. When we pray, “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” we are declaring, “I can’t, but I know that You can. I am unable, but You are able.” In the struggles and challenges of life, you have a Heavenly Father who wants to help you!
May 21, 2019
Your Kingdom Come
00:42:52
Continuing the Lord’s Prayer series, Mike Distefano teaches us about the Kingdom of God, and what it means to pray “Your kingdom come.”
May 07, 2019
Our Father
00:45:23
Kicking off a new series called The Lord’s Prayer, Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us what it means to have God as our Father. We were built for proximity to God, and God wants us to be around Him! God, as our Father, shows us that He is strong, loving, and wise towards His children.
Apr 30, 2019
Here Is Love
00:28:26
This week, Pastor Ben Stuart shares a powerful message on the love God has for us as explained in 1 John 4. Those who know and believe they are loved by God live a life that is fearless and free. Pastor Ben dives into four traits that characterize love and how we see those traits demonstrated through the life of Jesus. On Easter Sunday, we remember that Jesus exited heaven and went through hell to get us back. This is love!
Apr 23, 2019
The Philippian Method of Changing the World
00:37:29
“Generous people are joy creators.” — This week, Pastor Ben Stuart closes out the Home Team series bringing a strong word about generosity. Looking at the way Paul writes to the Philippians we see 7 powerful reasons to be a generous person, and the enormous impact that generosity has. We are all given the opportunity to be a part of God’s story through the way we are generous, and in the way we steward our resources. The question is will it be by fear or by faith?
Apr 16, 2019
Releasing Anxiety
00:47:00
“For many of you, your biggest problem is not your problems, it’s your anxiety about your problems.” Jesus presents anxiety as one of the biggest impediments to seeking the Kingdom of God. For many of us, worries and anxiety in life keep us from all we are meant to be under God. This week, Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us that there is an invitation to cast our cares on Him. Our anxieties are not too heavy for God — He is there waiting for us to release them.
Apr 09, 2019
Being Good vs. Being God’s
00:40:14
This week, Pastor Ben Stuart continues the Home Team series in Philippians. We see that Paul is concerned about the people who reduce spirituality to a list of rituals instead of a pursuit of intimacy. This is the type of spirituality that looks like the real thing but isn’t. If you buy into it, it will not only fail you but it will destroy your life. True spirituality is a powerful intimacy — it is not about a list. It’s not about being good, it’s about being God’s!
Apr 02, 2019
Don’t Be A Cry-Cry
00:51:57
“The people of Jesus are not just a light that stands out from other people, but a light that stands out for people.” This week, Pastor Ben Stuart continues the Home Series with the reminder that we are meant to be luminaries in the world - people who shine light into the darkness. The way we live sends a powerful message, and as followers of Jesus, we want our activity to promote the message of Jesus. Everything we do should be a response to the work that God has done in us, and this changes the way we live! How do you shine in the midst of the world? Stop complaining. Don’t be a cry-cry!
Mar 26, 2019
The Power of Humility
00:46:47
Continuing the Home Team series, Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us that humility is the path to unity. The way we treat each other is always a response to how we have been treated by God — our activity is a response to God’s activity. What then is the natural response to all that God has done? It is to care about us! True spirituality always expresses itself in unity, and the key to unity is humility!
Mar 19, 2019
Whatever
00:44:43
"Why am I here? What is my purpose? This week, Pastor Louie Giglio helps us reframe the way we think about our purpose in life. God’s will isn’t necessarily about figuring out the right job to pursue, the right place to move, or even the right thing to do. Instead, it is to make Him known as you pursue whatever passion He has put in your life and to do that to the best of your ability. This is our true purpose for being alive!"
Mar 12, 2019
Stand Together, Strive Together
00:43:52
"Spiritually is always worked out in the context of community. You will never be you without us.” Pastor Ben Stuart continues the Home Team series with the encouragement that we need an us. We can’t be who we were made to be without each other. Your human potential cannot be reached as an individual. Victory is not found alone; you need unity so you can stand. We’re not made to run alone, and we don’t have to!
Mar 05, 2019
The World in Checkmate
00:49:04
“A whole universe of meaning and joy opens when we live according to our Creator’s intent.” Meaning and joy aren’t things to be aimed at; they are byproducts of a life surrendered to the purposes of God. If you have created your own meaning, then unfortunate events can derail you — but when you have a God-given purpose, circumstances can’t shake you. Pastor Ben Stuart continues our Home Team series helping us to understand how meaning and joy come from living lives linked with the Creator.
Feb 27, 2019
Let Love Abound
00:50:14
In this week’s message, Jason Thomas continues the Home Team series, reminding us that to have the greatest impact, we need to have the deepest intimacy with the One who called us. “If you’re going to grow in abounding love, you’re going to have to minimize your distractions and maximize your devotion.”
Feb 19, 2019
We Need Us
00:40:49
“You will never be fully you without us and we will never be fully us without you.” Pastor Ben Stuart kicks off a new series, Home Team, by diving into the book of Philippians. He reminds us that no one unifies just for the sake of unity - we unite around a common purpose. We need community, and we are in a community, that has linked with the best of all causes; running with the best of all Kings!
Feb 12, 2019
The Tactics of Transformation
00:46:18
Pastor Ben Stuart closes out The Fight series by giving us five practical ways to pursue transformation in our lives. God built a structure that promotes the pursuit of intimacy with Him — a structure in which we flourish!
Feb 06, 2019
Never Fight Alone
00:42:46
Continuing The Fight series, Director of Community and Formation, Mike Distefano, comes around the importance of community. — Looking in Matthew 6, we see that Jesus commands us to seek first the Kingdom of God for it is the only thing in life that satisfies, and the only thing in our world that is truly permanent. The thing is, we are meant to be in the pursuit with other people. We are a people made for community; hardwired to stand with others as we run after the Kingdom of God together, never fighting the good fight alone.
Jan 29, 2019
The Fight
00:44:07
The pursuit of spirituality happens in the context of adversity. We are in a fight to cultivate intimacy with our Creator, and in this fight, there are things we flee from and there are things we pursue. In fact, there are things we need to say no to, in order to say yes to something better! This week Pastor Ben Stuart encourages us with the truth that though we struggle, we have the ability to struggle well, and overcome in Jesus’ name. What do you need to say no to, in order to give something else your yes? “What you think about is what you care about, and what you care about is what you chase.”
Jan 22, 2019
The Stronger One is Here
00:43:17
“The greatest fighters are the ones who know that they’ve been fought for.” Kicking off the New Year with a new series, “The Fight,” Pastor Ben Stuart encourages us with the truth that we need a new identity before a new activity. The answer we are looking for is not a list of rules; it is a liberator. We have Someone who has set us free and ushers us into life with the conquering King—the Stronger One is here!
Jan 09, 2019
Seeking + Celebrating
00:21:47
Christmas Eve // Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us that God is a searching God who sent His Son to save us while we were still sinners. Why did Jesus show up in a manger? Because Jesus wants you! This holiday season, we’re remembering that compassion is the WHY behind the WHAT of Christmas.
Dec 26, 2018
Out of Egypt
00:41:42
As we approach Christmas, Pastor Ben Stuart encourages us with the truth that Jesus was born into real life - he was born into a world mixed with joy and pain. Jesus lived the human story on earth, not just the good parts but the hard ones as well. We can have confidence that Jesus understands us because he lived in the struggle. But that’s not the end of the story - we can have hope too! He joins us in the struggle so that we might join him in the victory. His liberation is for our hope!
Dec 24, 2018
Making Peace
00:44:23
"Jesus intends not just to bring peace to you, but through you.” — Closing out The Missing Peace series, Pastor Ben Stuart guides us through what it looks like to be peacemakers in a broken world. We are meant to leverage the freedom we have in Jesus to bring peace to others. — How do you be a peacemaker? By praying and by greeting. Love looks like prayer. Greeting someone initiates kindness, and communicates respect. Peacemakers extend love beyond expected boundaries.
Dec 18, 2018
Sleep in Heavenly Peace
00:45:48
If many of us know about Jesus and the peace He brings, why is it that we walk around with such a lack of it? This week, Global Pastor Louie Giglio reminds us that connecting with the peace of Jesus will require a recalibration of how we think about Him, and who He really is.
Dec 11, 2018
All As It Should Be
00:40:13
“The peace of God is not just the absence of conflict, but the presence of flourishing.” Kicking off The Missing Peace series, Pastor Ben Stuart encourages us with God’s solution to the lack of peace we often feel in our lives. We see that the solution is not a list of principles; it’s a person: the Prince of Peace. The hope we can have today is knowing that even when everything is falling apart, we have the Prince of Peace, and we can trust Him.
Dec 04, 2018
Has the Bible Been Corrupted?
00:42:18
Closing out the Trust Issues series, Pastor Ben Stuart answers this question: How can we know that the Scriptures we hold today are what was written down originally? In this message, we take a look at the history of the preservation of the Scriptures concluding that we can have confidence that they hold true and we see God’s true heart for His people. — God preserved His Word so you would know that He came for you.
Nov 27, 2018
Minding the Gap
00:48:13
Continuing our Trust Issues series, Dr. Darrell Bock from Dallas Seminary walked us through an exploration of one of the big questions that many of us struggle to reconcile: what about the gap between when events occurred and when they were written down? Can we have confidence that the Scriptures we hold today faithfully recount the life and work of Jesus? Dr. Bock explains three things that help us understand the gap: orality, memory, and eye-witnesses.
Nov 21, 2018
Dealing with our Hypocrisy
00:44:35
“Christian hypocrisy is maximized when the resurrection of Jesus is minimized.” — What if the greatest barrier to Christianity is Christians? Kicking off our new series, “Trust Issues,” our friend Timothy Ateek from Breakaway Ministries joins us this week to talk about what happens when Christians become calloused to the beautiful reality of the resurrection of Jesus. Timothy Ateek reminds us that the resurrection gives us freedom from the past, power in the present, and hope for the future!
Nov 13, 2018
The Warrior Wife

Mind on my Money
00:42:25
“Money can build a house, but it can’t build a home. Money can give you food on a table but it can’t give you fellowship.” In this week’s message, Pastor Ben Stuart takes a look at what the book of Proverbs has to say about money. It has power, and can be used to build up or tear down. Proverbs helps us to see money as a gift from God and gives us wisdom about how to handle it well.

How to be a Boss
00:46:05
When we look at the grand scope of our lives, we see that most of us spend the majority of our time at work. As believers, how do we navigate the work world in a way that’s glorifying to God and life-giving to others? — In this powerful message, Mike Distefano challenges us to use the power we’ve been given in the workplace for the good of those around us. In a society that often seeks self-promotion and personal success, we have the opportunity to choose a different path. By understanding our identity as children loved dearly by God, we get to enter the work world FROM and place of acceptance and not FOR it.

Proverbial Sex
00:45:28
In an overly sexualized world, we often find ourselves feeling lonely, as emotional intimacy has been separated from sexuality. In this week’s message Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us that we are not made to give our bodies without our hearts. Each of us have the opportunity to have relationships that are healthy, life-giving, and glorifying to God. In this powerful message we learn how to build relationships that flourish, trading in a consumer mentality for a covenant mentality. What kind of mentality are you approaching your relationships with?

True Friendship
00:45:47
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20 — As humans, we’re all hardwired for community. Isolation as a whole is not good for the human machine. That’s why a form of torture is solitary confinement - being completely separated from human interaction. The question, however, is what kind of community are we surrounding ourselves with? — In this week’s message, Pastor Ben Stuart guides us through what the book of Proverbs has to say about friendships. The truth is, the people we walk with determine our path. Are those within your community pointing you toward a life of flourishing or a life of destruction?

I Pity the Fool
00:46:08

Wise Moves in a Wild World
00:47:16
Pastor Ben Stuart // “What you need most in life is not a change of circumstances. We as humans are capable of messing up even the most ideal of circumstances. What we truly need most in life is the ability to flourish regardless of our circumstances.” — This week Pastor Ben Stuart kicked off our new series, Survival Skills: Wise Moves in a Wild World. The truth is, the world we live in is messy and unpredictable. But the good news is that Scripture gives us a guide to flourish regardless of what comes our way. In this new series, we’ll dig into the book of Proverbs in hopes of strengthening the muscle of wisdom in our lives.

Millennial Narcissism?
00:45:18
Pastor Ben Stuart // There is a deep desire in the hearts of humanity to be known, valued, and recognized. In today’s culture, we are encouraged in this idea that it’s all about us, our fame, and making our name known. But what happens when the follower count isn’t enough? What do we do when we seek fame and are left feeling empty? The truth is, we will never find satisfaction in self-absorption, but we will find it in radical self donation. In this game-changing message, Pastor Ben Stuart poses a challenging question to each of us: Are you building a tower for your own glory, or are you using your life as an altar for His?

True Spirituality
00:44:59
Pastor Ben Stuart // What does it look like to connect with the Spirit of God? We all have a desire for a spiritual walk, but how do we know that our lives are truly being guided by the Spirit? True spirituality is not a life free from struggle, rather, it’s constant dependence on God in the midst of pain. With the Word of God educating us, the Spirit of God empowering us, and the community of God carrying us, we have the tools we need to live lives that glorify Jesus!

We are Making a Place for You
00:52:16
Pastor Louie Giglio // Jesus is the ultimate place-maker. Through Him everything around us was created, and by His sacrifice, a place for us was made in His Father’s House. — As followers of Jesus, we are called to be place-makers in our own right. To set the table for the people of our city to sit at and experience all God has for them. This is how we step into a broken and wandering world, with open hands and a place made ready; but in order to do that, we will need to be willing to go above and beyond where we’ve ever been before.
