Shears + Shoots + Fruit – June 2012
Shears + Shoots + Fruit Week # 1: Cutting + Pruning
Israel was the vine until the vine stopped producing fruit. Somewhere along the way they forgot their purpose…then in moment just hours before his death he says it – Jesus is the true vine and his Father is the gardener. For the vine to be fruitful there is some cutting and pruning needed…
Shears + Shoots + Fruit Week # 2: Fruit
Fruit is not the goal or the hope. It is the purpose of the vine. More fruit, better fruit, sweeter fruit. The way to fruit requires honest self-reflection and measurement and then remaining connected to the vine…
Shears + Shoots + Fruit Week # 3: Love One Another (Missions)
Jesus says, “Lay down your life for your friends.” How are we to serve? Are there differences in the way of serving? And if you lay your life down, shouldn’t it count for something more than the next five minutes?
Shears + Shoots + Fruit Week # 4: Chosen and Appointed
Jesus says, “I have chosen and appointed you to bear fruit – fruit that will last…” Growing the volume and quality of fruit is what we have been appointed to do. The church is made up of lots of living branches to the vine and the branches help connect more and more branches to produce more and more fruit…
Rescue Teaching Series – Spring 2012
Rescue Week # 1: Life at the Threshold of Hell
Israel was an unfaithful lover to God just as Gomer would be an unfaithful wife to Hosea. Both found themselves at the threshold of hell. Why do we end up in these places of pain and suffering? How do we understand this in light of a God we call loving? How does God rescue us from these places?
Rescue Week # 2: The God Who Never Gives Up.
Israel was the unfaithful lover to God and yet God continually, persistently, always, never gives up. God reveals this ultimately in the unfailing expression of his love for us when his Son Jesus comes for us to rescue us…
(Worship Pastor Darrell Pittman Teaching Today)
Rescue Week # 3: Rescue at a Shoney’s Diner
Hear the story of redemption and the power of God’s love…
Rescue Week # 4: Rescue from Death Itself
Out of the worst kind of death and suffering, God promises the power of new life. The story of redemption goes beyond life and extends through death itself. Paul picks up on the promise Hosea offers to Israel through Jesus Christ…
Rescue Week # 5: A Father’s Rescue
Jesus sits down to dinner with two groups of people and tells a parable about two sons. Both need to be rescued. Both require the rescue of a Father who loves them equally and without comparison or chastisement for their sins and faults…
Rescue Week # 6: The Rescue of a Lost Son
Jesus tells a parable about a Son who walked far from home. The question is why do we settle for drowning and not humble ourselves enough to come back home?
(Youth Pastors Robin & Caleb Bupp Teaching Today for Graduates Chapel)
Rescue Week # 7: The Rescue of An Older Brother
Why is grace just so tough to receive or give away? The parable Jesus shares shows that an older brother who lived in the Father’s House and had never left home had all he could ever want or need, and yet was unable to give grace…what might we learn from this.
Tattooed Priests Teaching Series – Winter 2012
Tattooed Priests Week # 1
Holy Barbecues. We make sacrifices everyday. In the ancient world, sacrifice was a way of life. God has an entirely different idea of sacrifice: once the sacrifice is made, it’s over.
Tattooed Priests Week # 2
Big Curtains + Naked Priests. One day each year, one man in all of Israel went behind the curtain to be in God’s presence – to be in the most holy place on earth and bring the inner holy presence of God, outward to the normal and ordinary places and people. This was the practice year after year until a new high priest came and changed everything…
Tattooed Priests Week # 3
Worship. Before the ordination of the priests, they came to worship before God at the temple. What is your worship like? How do you worship? What needs to change in the way you worship? Worship Pastor Darrell Pittman teaches on worship today.
Tattooed Priests Week # 4
Tattooed Priests. In the ancient world, one could spot an Egyptian Priest from a mile away – they had tattoos all over their bodies. God’s call to us is to be a Kingdom of Priests and a holy nation. Everyone is a priest, and everyone is meant to create space in their lives and help create space in the lives of others for God. How well do your “tattoos” reveal the presence of God to those around you?
Tattooed Priests Week # 5
Whitewashed Tombs. That’s what Jesus later called them. People who have all the boxes checked on the list but the wrong kind of heart. There are two halves of the same life: the way to life through Jesus and the way of life in Jesus. The question is this: who do you follow – a list or Jesus?
Tattooed Priests Week # 6
The God of the Party. In Leviticus 23, there is an ongoing command: stop, rest, party, repeat. It happens weekly and at the three major feasts. Maybe there’s something here for us in our busy fast-paced lives today…are we batteries to be consumed and thrown away, or people, beloved and redeemed by God from the slavery of the human system?
Tattooed Priests Week # 7
Jubilee Part One: Politics + Economics. Faith and politics. The two subjects raise lots of eyebrows, suspicions, and challenges during election years. What is a priest to do with politics? How do we engage? Do we disengage? Politics tells us much about who is in charge and Israel had an entirely different way of doing life when it came to politics and economics…
Tattooed Priests Week # 8
Jubilee Part Two: Outreach + Evangelism. Evangelism. Not many like this word. It’s someone else’s spiritual gift. It’s too “in your face.” And yet, Jesus makes the proclamation at the start of his ministry that Jubilee has come. What might Jesus be asking us when his ministry starts with discipleship and ends with a Great Commission?
