    Jesus often told parables with no explanation of what they meant. Then there are the times Jesus explained what his parable meant… and we still have to dig into them to find illumination. This week we are talking soil and light.

    Birthing something new comes with risks. New isn't always better. New doesn't always last. While that is true, we choose to embrace those risks because of His great love for us. Join us as we continue journeying through Advent season and consider how we see ourselves in the Advent story.

    When the light goes from green to yellow, what is your immediate response? How about when it turns red? Do you ignore the light and rush on through the intersection as if nothing has changed? How about as you approach your Sabbath day; are you prepared to Sabbath?

    Even in challenging times, how can joy become my baseline emotion? We've heard "the joy of the Lord is our strength," but what does that mean? Can joy really be part of our experience as we engage with God?

  • Inhale Exhale: Slave to Saved

    2022, breath, exhale, inhale, mission ridge, mission ridge church, real life, rest, sabbath, sermons

    Some have said that Sabbath is an Old Testament rule that Christians don't have to keep. Is that true? And if we go with that idea...what if we are running away from the gospel?

    2021, disciple, disciple making, discipleship, jesus, mission ridge, mission ridge church, real life, relational discipleship, sermons

    You are invited! Those words sound nice, right? Except it can feel scary to be the one saying those words. "What if they say no?" "What if this makes our relationship feel weird?" How can the act of inviting actually be inviting?

  • The Great Co-Mission: Spiritual Conversations

    October 2nd, 2022  |  43 mins 4 secs
    2021, disciple, disciple making, discipleship, jesus, mission ridge, mission ridge church, real life, relational discipleship, sermons

    Why can sharing our faith feel so awkward? Oftentimes we wonder how to get started, and what to say. How Jesus engaged with Nicodemus in conversation has some answers for us.

  • The Great Co-Mission: Space for Relationship

    September 25th, 2022  |  44 mins 32 secs
    2021, disciple, disciple making, discipleship, jesus, mission ridge, mission ridge church, real life, relational discipleship, sermons

    Sometimes it seems easier to just “do all the stuff” for your relationship with Jesus than to actually BE in relationship with Him, but that ends up feeling hallow. How can you create space in your life that allows for your relationship with Jesus to flourish, and subsequently every other relationship in your life?

  • The Great Co-Mission: Relationship Required

    September 18th, 2022  |  40 mins 10 secs
    2021, disciple, disciple making, discipleship, jesus, mission ridge, mission ridge church, real life, relational discipleship, sermons

    One of the great paradoxes of life is how relationships brings about our greatest joys, but also our deepest pains. Jesus's call to be and make disciples cannot be carried out at arms length. Discipleship is designed with relationship required. For many people this is scary, but this is where we actually find healing.
