Zealous and Consumed

 

Gary Wilkerson

October 26, 2014

In this fourth installment of our sermon series from the Gospel of John, Pastor Gary Wilkerson looks at the passages about Jesus cleansing the temple. Christ is consumed with zeal for his house. God doesn't want his house to be a place of consumerism—focused all on ourselves. He wants to remove things that clutter and distract us from walking in holiness. As he empties us, he wants to fill us with more zeal for him and his kingdom purposes.

Coming to Jesus in Your Darkest Night

 

Gary Wilkerson

November 1, 2014

Pastor Gary Wilkerson continues our sermon series in the Gospel of John, looking at the life of Nicodemus. We can sometimes put on the outer appearance of everything being okay. The busyness and clamor of the day can even keep us distracted, but in the quiet of night our deep hurts and confusion come to the surface. Only Jesus can heal these deep wounds. Come to him!

You Keep Looking in the Wrong Direction

 

Michael Petillo

November 9, 2014

It is easy to get concerned about the future, especially if you are in the middle of hard or uncertain times. We look forward for a sign that the future will be okay, but we should be looking back to Christ's completed covenant. Your assurance for the future comes when you look back to God's past faithfulness.

What's Between Ask and Receive?

 

Tim Dilena

November 30, 2014

If you have been a Christian for any amount of time, then you are probably familiar with Jesus' words, "Ask, and you will receive..." If we are honest, a lot of the time when we ask we don't receive the answer in the time we expected. What happened?! God may have some areas in your life where he needs to bring growth before he brings the answer; or he may have many things to coordinate in order to answer your prayer.

The Sower, the Son and the Sick Man

 

Gary Wilkerson

February 7, 2014

Pastor Gary Wilkerson continues our sermon series from the Gospel of John, looking at three vignettes in the life of Jesus. In each we see critical situations desperately needing a move of God. "The Sower" shows us that we reap and receive that for which we did not labor. "The Son" demonstrates that Jesus does not require conditions or coordination. And in "The Sick Man" we see that hope lost over time can be restored in a moment.

Restoring Derailed Lives

 

Gary Wilkerson

December 14, 2014

It isn't uncommon to get off to a great start full of faith and excitement only to get derailed when difficulties come along. Like Philip we look at our resources and realize we don't have enough—money, faith, skill, etc. Fortunately we know one who makes all the resources of heaven available to us. Rather than fixating on the crisis, look to the one who can resolve your crisis. With dependent confidence draw near to Jesus in prayer, the Bible and community.

Reaching Unimaginable Destinations

 

Gary Wilkerson

January 4, 2015

Pastor Gary Wilkerson continues our sermon series in the Gospel of John, sharing about how God wants to do unimaginable things in our lives. In John 6:16–21, we see that God intends each of us to have a destination, drive and delight. He wants to bring children closer to God and bring healing in our lives. The destination is the vision and calling that he has given to each one of us. We can move forward with passion and eagerness when this calling in clear. Just as Jesus got in the boat with his disciples, it is a place of joy when Jesus is walking with you and leading you in this calling.

The Holy Spirit at Work

 

Nicky Cruz

January 11, 2015

Guest speaker and one of the overseers of The Springs Church, Nicky Cruz shares about the power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Peter, Paul and even his own life. There is power that comes from the Holy Spirit that enables us to go to the ends of the earth telling people about Jesus. When the Holy Spirit is at work, chains fall to the ground and prison doors swing open. Our greatest weapons are faith and prayer. We must pray and believe that Jesus can and will deliver and save.

The 7-11 Vision

 

Gary Wilkerson

February 1, 2015

How is the church to respond when the world around us seems to be coming apart? Pastor Gary Wilkerson draws the answer from 1 Peter 4:7–11 in what he calls "The 7-11 Vision." In these verses, Peter encourages Christians to continue loving deeply, to have disciplined and earnest prayer, to host friends as well as strangers, and to use our spiritual gifts to serve others.

Partway Prodigals

 

Gary Wilkerson

February 8, 2015

Pastor Gary Wilkerson kicks off our Freeway sermon series talking about prodigals. In Luke 15, we see an all-out prodigal who blew his entire inheritance on wild living. Partway prodigals are more common though. They maintain a form of right behavior, while self-managing "small" sin that no one knows about. Whether an all-out prodigal or a partway prodigal, the remedy is the same; come into the house and celebrate the Father's love.
