Do you need love, attention, acceptance, or security but you feel unlovable? Do you need meaning, purpose, significance, and success but you feel like a failure? God loves you and has a purpose for you. God will transform you when you come to believe and obey Him. This message presents how God’s gracious gifts make disciples of Christ more than conquerors. Nothing in creation can separate the faithful from the love of God. However, selfish sins can separate you from God. Coveting the acceptance of others and protecting your self-importance separates people from God. God has seen you at your worst, yet He loves you. This message presents how God’s grace provides a purpose for your life.

Words are powerful. James described the tongue as a deadly poison. When the Holy Spirit fills hearts, there is no room for insults and profanity. This message presents the faults of the tongue. Christians can change their words to build up and give grace. Jesus revealed, “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matt 12:35). On the other hand, how should Christians respond to those who insult, abuse, and persecute them with words? Christ taught, “Love your enemies.” Listen and consider how the Scriptures guide believers in the use of their words.

The Bible is the source of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection in the Gospels. How does the Bible attest to its reliability? This message considers come critical points about trusting the Bible many centuries after its origin. Believers find that the Bible is perfect in harmony without any contradiction. The Bible is only as infallible as Jesus is sinless and His words are without error.

After healing a lame man, Peter proclaimed the Gospel revealing that one must listen to Jesus or be destroyed. The Christian faith is exclusive to Christ. Salvation belongs to Jesus. Jesus declared that He is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to Father except by Him. The Christian faith is not politically correct. There is no other way to “the good place.” Jesus revealed that the way is narrow and hard that leads to life, and the way to destruction is wide and easy. This message encourages the Christian not to compromise the Truth.

Most people follow their hearts. The heart is the center of emotional actions to decisions that people face. The Bible describes the heart as the place of thought and emotion. God warned in the Bible about following the heart. However, Jesus revealed that the pure of heart are blessed. Christians are to have pure hearts. This message will uncover conflicts within the heart and ways to change the heart according to the Scriptures.

Christ prayed that the church be one — united. The apostle Paul appealed and commanded unity. If God commands Christian unity, then Christians can unite. This is with exclusion of false teachers. The key to Christian unity is love and faith. A core faith is essential and love for one another. This message addresses the specifics of the faith and love necessary for Christian unity.

To complete our series on “The Compelling Christ”, the resurrection of Christ is one of most compelling actions and qualities about Christ. Jesus’s resurrection is the center of Christian theology and the beginning of the Christian’s eternal hope. Saved and blessed are those who believe and confess that Jesus is Lord and that He rose from the dead. Jesus predicted His resurrection, and even His Jewish enemies confirmed this in their accusations and mockery of Jesus. Jesus’s resurrection was a sign for that wicked generation. Through Jesus’s resurrection, the church began. This message will explore Jesus’s declarations of His coming resurrection setting the basis for the Christian faith.

People follow a cause for results. Jesus's leadership produced results. Jesus came not to be served but to serve. A person can see one's leadership by what one washes of others. Jesus washed the feet of His disciples and set a model for Christian leadership. If the Christian's Lord and Teacher served, Christians should too. God had given a gift of Jesus's example. This message will help you contemplate His model.

Why do people follow others — admiration, love, fear? Jesus revealed that those who love Him will keep His words. Many people are seeking more — purpose and meaning. Each person hungers and thirsts for more, and only Jesus can satisfy every spiritual desire. Jesus’s words are spirit and life, and there is no spiritual life without His words. This message examines Jesus’s words that compelled so many and yet offended many others. However, Peter confessed, "You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God."

The Gospels depict crowds coming to a Jewish carpenter for His compassion. What could a carpenter give that crowds would follow him? The Gospels present Jesus as this carpenter doing wondrous works for those who suffered. For love, the Word is God and came in the flesh to dwell among men. When Jesus saw the people as sheep without a shepherd, He had compassion on them. For this reason, He taught them many things. Jesus expressed His compassion in the Truth that He preached. He did not compromise the truth in order not to offend others. However, many were not offended having seen the compassion of Jesus in His great works. Others mocked Jesus through His suffering and death. Depending on a person’s guilt and sensitivity of conscience, some heard blasphemy and others heard the greatest message the world has ever known. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
