The world is calling us to:
- Do whatever makes you happy
- Take the path of least resistance
- Follow your heart

The problem is that we know how those things work out. We end up with burnout, without clarity of purpose, and a deep-rooted feeling of isolation. The cleverness of this lie given to us by the world is that it calls us to these traits only to blame us when we fail them. The blame sets in, we wallow in guilt, and then we pick ourselves up to once again white-knuckle our way into a false sense of security and happiness to only have all of the it happen again. It’s an endless feedback loop of insanity and weariness.

What if Jesus really does know the answers to life? What if He really does know what will fulfill us? What if this isn’t about rules and more about true freedom?

What if, in denial of our sinful urges, we find our true selves?

What if, in hardship and sacrifice, we find peace and fulfillment?

What if, in Jesus, we find rest?

One of the main themes of Jesus’ teachings that was seemingly simple, yet difficult to achieve, was the idea of service. Although Jesus emphasized serving those around us, the concept is completely counterintuitive. Matthew 20:20-28 is an excellent example of this.

This passage tells of when the mother of James and John request that Jesus give them the thrones at his right and left in the Kingdom of Heaven. This sparks a feud between the disciples about which of them was the greatest, and it is here that Jesus sees a need to correct their thinking.

As followers of Christ we are to be different than the world, and instead of competing for authority and honor we should be performing acts of service and humility.

Jesus gives Himself as the example and standard, who, as the Son of God, had every reason to exercise His authority over people, yet He was the one who performed the ultimate act of service and sacrificed his life for us. As followers of Jesus, we are obligated to follow in His footsteps by becoming each other’s servants and placing ourselves last. When we have mastered the art of humility and putting other’s needs ahead of our own, then we will be considered great in the Kingdom of Heaven. So let us step into the ever-present opportunities to serve others in humility, so that the Holy Spirit can continue to transform our minds and hearts into that of Jesus Christ.

People often ask me, “What does it mean to live by God’s power rather than my own?” This is a good question. Let’s consider 2 Corinthians 12:9-10.

The apostle Paul seemed to have an uncanny ability to endure even the most difficult trials with joy. Through trials like sickness, imprisonment, and beatings, Paul managed a level of perseverance that seems difficult to attain. Not only was Paul able to endure his suffering, but he was able to delight in it. In this passage he reveals two reasons for being able to transform even the most difficult circumstances into things that make him strong: God’s grace and God’s glory.

First, God’s grace is sufficient. God in His grace is all-powerful and able to meet any of our needs. If God is mighty enough to remove our trials from us, but doesn’t, then there must be some reason why God doesn’t deliver us immediately. Luckily, Paul lets us in on the secret of this reason - God, in His grace, gives us trials as a gift! So, instead of looking at difficulties as setbacks, we should see them as God-given opportunities to witness His power firsthand!

Second, God’s glory is what transforms our circumstances. Notice who receives the credit and honor in this passage: God. It is God’s power that is showcased in verse 9 and it is for Christ’s sake that Paul suffers in verse 10.

It seems that in order to access God’s power in our lives to help us persevere, we must do two things. First, we should trust that the situation is an opportunity given to us by God for our good. Second, we should humble ourselves and look for ways to glorify God in our circumstances. This is how we live by Christ’s power, not our own!

Yesterday we celebrated stepping into a new space for our college ministry at the church. The move is more than just getting a place to hang that is from this century, it’s about investing more in what we already have and what we are always striving for: Community.

We, as brothers and sisters in Christ, belong to one another. When we gather, it is the resemblance of our Risen Savior. We love, we give, and we serve one another.

In Ephesians 4, Paul encourages the church in Ephesus toward unity and diversity in their gatherings - saying for them to be humble, gentle, patient, and bearing with one another in love. This is a great standard to hold ourselves to and exist within.

I look forward to this year and the many that will follow. I look forward to seeing God move through each of us as we strive to see His will be done in Dallas as it is in Heaven. I look forward to seeing each of you grow in Christ and in your bonds with one another. And I look forward to seeing how you, following the example of Paul, will be humble, gentle, patient, and bear with one another in Christlike love!

Directions to our new space!

We can’t wait to see you this Sunday morning! Here’s a quick instructional video on how to find us in our new space!

01/11/2021

Let’s be honest, during this season of life it’s hard to be content. Our 20s are all about the grind (or so people say). Grind school. Grind work. Make networks. Build reputation. Go. Go. Go.

It’s exhausting. On top of that, while running the never-ending treadmill of tasks, we watch other people’s social medias as they live their lives in more spectacular ways and be given greater achievements and accolades that we can only dream of finding for ourselves.

First, can I tell you that social media isn’t a true depiction of life?
Second, can I tell you that even if social media is true, why does it matter so much to you?

At end of Hebrews, the author gives various encouragements to his readers, and one of those is that we need to be satisfied with what we have in our lives. What is the reason the author gives for our satisfaction? - God promised he would never leave or forsake us.

The grind, the classes, the job, the achievements, the recognition on social media, or whatever else you are wanting for yourself is a bottomless pit. It will eat you alive and not think twice about doing so. Contentment in what God has given you today, Himself and the blessings He has given you, is the only cure for rising above the envy and cynicism surrounding us today.

So what do you have? Think about it! Write it down! Meditate on it. Remember it. Pray thankfulness over it. And then, go live your life of contentment and gratitude. When we are finally content in what God has given us, only then are we free to live our lives generously and freely.

01/02/2021

We are back in person tomorrow morning at 9:15am! This week we’re tackling the question of whether or not we have free will or if everything in our lives has already been planned out. Can’t wait to discuss it with you!

| New Year, Same God

2021 is here! I think we can all look back at this time last year when we were dreaming of how great 2020 could be for us... well we saw how that went!

But, indeed, we have returned to the place of dreaming. For some of us, however, maybe 2020 left us afraid to dream, to hope. Maybe we become jaded, cynical, and have resorted to just getting by for another year.

The author of Hebrews closes his letter with final encouragements to his readers. It is here we find a comforting reality: Jesus hasn’t and won’t change. Our world has changed. Our culture has changed. We have changed. Jesus hasn’t. Jesus won’t.

I don’t know what 2021 is going to bring us, but I know the character and heart of the one who will guide us through it. Jesus, our gentle and generous savior, will walk with us as we dream in this new year and remind us He is constant and in control. If our dreams don’t pan out the way we want them to, so be it to the glory of God - for we know He will repurpose them into something more beautiful.

So, for today, let’s look forward. Let’s get excited. Let’s celebrate within our hearts. Let’s dream. It’s a new year with the same God reigning over it all.
