Taking a Spear to a Curse and Compromise

 

Gary Wilkerson

June 7, 2015

In Christ we are holy and blessed people, but that may not always be our experience. Sometimes we can feel defeated or slip into compromise. The reality is that we have an enemy who attacks us, wants to curse us and attempts to rob God’s blessing from us. We must be aware and alert, but not afraid. God has given us everything we need—the Holy Spirit, prayer, the Bible, wise counsel, etc. Jesus, our advocate, faced the same enemy and overcame. Let’s allow Christ to drive a spear through the curse and compromise in our life. Then we will truly live a blessed life that draws people to Jesus.

Deuteronomy 28:1–9; Numbers 22:1–25:3

Don't Worry About A Thing

 

Gary Wilkerson

July 12, 2015

We live in difficult and uncertain times, yet in John 14 Jesus commands us not to let our hearts be troubled. How can we do that, especially when even Jesus' own heart was troubled? Our comfort comes from knowing that he is working on our behalf—both eternally and here in this world. He invites us into relationship with himself and the Father. Jesus not only bears our sins, but also our cares.

Tension in the Upper Room

 

Gary Wilkerson

July 19, 2015

Most of us are probably familiar with the upper room in Acts, but there is another, first, upper room in the Gospel of John. The second upper room is not possible without the first. It is a place of tension where God brings conviction and correction, but he does not leave us there. Through Jesus' life, death and resurrection we now receive a helper, the Holy Spirit, through whom we can do greater works than Christ himself.

Seeing and Separating

 

Gary Wilkerson

July 26, 2015

Throughout Scripture we see that God is one who separates—light from dark, wheat from chaff, sheep from goats—yet today there is very little separation between the church and the world. Where is the call from pulpits to come out from among them and be separate? Separation isn't a matter of moral self-effort, but is something that is only possible when we have a revelation of the glory of God.

The Blade of Christ

 

Gary Wilkerson

August 16, 2015

We see in the Gospel of John that we are each branches who must abide in the true vine, Jesus—our only real source of life, joy and peace. There are weak branches that must be lifted up and encouraged in order to be fruitful. While there are also fruitful branches that must be pruned in order to produce more fruit. When the blade of Christ is pruning you, it is often a painful process, but it is only for a season and ultimately results in joy and peace.

The Lay Down Your Life on a Cross Kind of Love

 

Gary Wilkerson

August 23, 2015

Jesus commands us to love one another. It's not a natural love, but a supernatural love that is only born of the Spirit. It is a love that lays its life down for others. Flesh will war against this kind of love, but we must daily crucify our flesh. It is a love where mercy and justice are married—resulting in Spirit-birthed church unity.

Turning Your Sorrow into Joy

 

Gary Wilkerson

August 30, 2015

As Pastor Gary Wilkerson continues this series through the Gospel of John, we see Jesus warning the disciples that hard times will come. We will lament; we will weep; but Jesus will send his Holy Spirit to comfort us and keep us from falling away. He promises that our sorrow will turn to joy.

The Giving Life

 

Gary Wilkerson

September 6, 2015

This is not a sermon about tithes and offerings. It is a sermon about the core of the gospel as prayed by Jesus in John 17. It is a sermon about one of the hardest transitions you will ever go through in life—living for others rather than yourself. A selfless life is the mark of a mature follower of Christ.

Closing the Idol Factory

 

Gary Wilkerson

September 13, 2015

It is said that all of humankind has deep desires for significance, security and self-worth. As Christians, we know the world will only leave us feeling empty; and most of us would be quick to say that only Jesus can truly fulfill those desires. What if what we consider longings, God would actually call lusts? Jesus, our example, never asked God to fill his cup with significance, security or self-worth. He drank the cup the Father gave him—the cup of suffering and sacrifice.

Understanding and Fulfilling the Call of God

 

Claude Houde

October 12, 2015

We all have a call of God on our life that can only be fulfilled by us. Do you know your calling and are you fulfilling it? Like Gideon, we can often doubt ourselves or be blinded by our circumstances. Allow God to change your perspective. Activate your calling. And watch God change your storm into a story for his glory!
