One of the things about God’s nature that you’ll see in Scripture is He loves to fill empty things. From empty jars to empty stomachs to empty hearts, Jesus was about filling what was empty. The way we deal with emptiness in our culture is by living in a constant state of consumption. We are constantly consuming. And we love to get online and shop and buy things. We love to think about what we don’t have but what we’re going to get. And once we get whatever we wanted, we need something more. In this message Jesus turns it all upside down by helping us realize He can only fill us when we are empty.

For those who are consumed with getting to the top of the ladder, with reaching a certain status, with being successful, Jesus has a lot to say. In this message He’s going to redefine what all that means, because it turns out that the way up is down. We will discover greatness is not something that you ascend to; it’s something that you descend to.

Brokenness is a word that we don’t use much these days. It is not something we aspire to. You don’t want to write “broken” on your resume. We live in a culture that’s been termed “a throwaway culture.” When things break we throw them away. We don’t value repairing and fixing, making things new. In this message Jesus gives us a new lens with which to see broken things. For when Jesus looks at something broken, He sees something valuable.

When we live our lives from the standpoint of I must be in control of all things and all events and all people around me, our agenda is going to clash with God’s agenda. That take on life opens you up to unbearable anxiety and fear. It will wreak havoc with your ability to make decisions because your ability to make decisions will be clouded by your fear of losing control. In this final message, we will learn how to avoid a clash of kings and kingdoms by giving up control of the throne.

He began as a newborn king, but King Herod wanted Him dead. Years later, they would call Him the King of the Jews, but the religious leaders wanted Him dead. On the cross, He became the dead King. Then three days later, He became the Risen King. People are still threatened by this King who wants to sit on the throne of every heart. But believing in a Risen King can change your life forever.

One of the greatest kings in Israel’s history was King David. He was also one of the wealthiest kings. But David understood there was one King whose status and reign was above his own. He knew that all he had in power and possessions came from a higher throne than the one on which he sat. We will discover in this message how our wealth – our money and possessions – is subject to a higher King who wants to use it for eternal reasons. We will bring a special offering to the Chest of Joash this Sunday.

Because we are part of a democracy rather than a monarchy we really don’t understand the concept of thrones. We talk about the throne of God but because we are not accustomed to honoring a king, serving a king, or answering to a king in our society then we struggle to appreciate the importance of enthroning someone as king. In this opening message, a game we played as children will challenge us to see God in a different way – as the King He really is.

Overloaded people live in deficit —emotional deficit, relational deficit, and spiritual deficit. If you have ever overdrawn your checking account, you know the immediate stress and pressure that comes. You immediately want to find a way to cover it, but where do you find money when you are completely out? It is just as possible to get overdrawn in life. When you are overwhelmed, you find yourself living in deficit. You get overdrawn in your marriage, overdrawn with your kids, and you just plain run out of the spiritual, mental, relational, and emotional currency that it takes to really enjoy life. Join us for this final message as we learn from Jesus how to find rest in Him.

Stress is the #1 cause of health problems —mentally and physically. And there are few things that stress us out on a consistent basis like work does, especially when it takes away from all of the other things that life has to offer. This message will show us the areas of our life we need to address in order to experience rest from the stress.
