LOVE IS ACTION - Love Is, Part 2

Part 2 of the Love Is series and this week's topic: LOVE IS ACTION!

We all know that true love is more than words, but did you ever stop to think why you struggle so much to give that love to others?  If we all know we need to be more loving, what stops us?

The answer?  In order to love God and love others in a healthy way, I must first LOVE MYSELF in a healthy way.

What does that look like?  Check out the video above and see for yourself.  You'll hear me give my opinion of what that looks like and you'll also hear from a very dear friend of mine who courageously agreed to share her experience on the subject as well.


THE PATH TO PERFECTION - God's Ethics Part 5

“Therefore you shall be PERFECT, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”  
Matthew 5:48

Perfect?  YEAH RIGHT!  Are you kidding me?  Is that even possible?  That's the question that we discussed yesterday in the Week 5 series finale of God's Ethics: Realigning Your Moral Compass.

The key is in understanding what the word "perfect" really means.  If you define it as "sinless" or "without any blemish", then you're going to feel frustrated and discouraged.  But is that how Jesus meant it?

I say NO!  And I invite you to check out the message above to see for yourself.  You'll discover that perfection isn't at all what you think it is and that actually, it's a lot more within your reach than you realize.

I Am the Light of the World (I AM Part 3)

“I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”  John 8:12

This week's message in the I AM series is based on one of the inspirational and grace filled encounters that Jesus ever had.  The statement appears at the end of a dialogue between Jesus, some mean spirited Pharisees, and a woman caught in adultery.


Part 4 in the Crazymakers series.  This week is all about BOUNDARIES - what is my responsibility and what isn't?  Should I help every person in need?  Should I help no one in need?  Where do I draw the line? The answer to these questions might surprise you.  One of the things that I said in the message is that our goal is NOT to aim for equality - the goal isn't to treat everyone the same way.  That wasn't what Jesus did surprisingly enough.

So what should we be aiming for?  You'll have to listen to find out!
