Our Church Is About To Let You Down...

Let us not pursue the truth of our imperfections (everyone’s already found that truth) but rather focus on the truth and implications of Christ’s resurrection. It is the latter truth that is the remedy to the former....Keep Reading

Philadelphia, Brotherly Love?

These letters are a chance for us to look in the mirror as a church. We should aspire to that which the churches are commended for, hold fast to the ways in which they are encouraged and search ourselves as we examine each rebuke. The bottom line is that we want a church that pleases Jesus. Rather than be a church that is pronounced "dead" as in Sardis for neglecting the ways of God, may we be diligent to pursue holiness and sound doctrine to the glory of King Jesus. ...Keep Reading

Smyrna, things are going to get worse...

We're continuing our study of Revelation this Sunday with a look at the church in Smyrna. Christians in this church were living in extreme persecution. With their lives on the line each and every day, Christians in Smyrna desperately needed encouragement and power to persevere in their faith amongst a hostile culture. ...Keep Reading

John's first vision in Revelation this weekend!

Now is great time to start coming to The Journey! We're currently studying one of the most talked about books of the Bible, Revelation. Last week we discussed the purpose behind this Apocalypse and this Sunday we'll get into John's first vision (Revelation 1:9-20). This particular passage brought so much hope to the persecuted Christians of the 1st century. That same hope is made available to us through God's word here in this fascinating book!...Keep Reading

2 Sundays left in John!

Questions we'll discuss in this Sunday's sermon: 1. Why were these disciples fishing and not evangelizing? 2. Could this account be a parallel to Luke 5:1-11? 3. What's the significance of 153 fish? 4. Is John telling us this historical event so that we would allegorize this passage and discover eschatological significance?...Keep Reading

Why Teach Through Revelation?

Everybody wants to know what the deal is with Revelation but few take the time to examine it from different angles. Everybody wants to talk about Revelation but be careful, if you talk about it too much you'll be labeled a nut. Many say it is the most requested book of the Bible to be preached but the least preached on from the pulpit. Despite all of the preconceived ideas on this book, the various interpretive avenues Christians debate over and the mysteries of some of it's content I believe this is TOTALLY worth our while. ...Keep Reading

Christ's Prophetic Plans, MacArthur & Mayhue

Roughly 9 months ago in preparation for our study over the book of Revelation I started reading books regarding various Christian views on Scriptures dealing with the end-times. Over that span of time I've blogged book reviews in an effort to be able to promote/recommend worthwhile readings for those who may want to dig a little deeper while we're in Revelation. With that said, this is the last end-time review before the Revelation series begins this March. However, at some point after the series kicks off I'll blog about my primary commentary & teaching resources that I'll be using while teaching through Revelation. ...Keep Reading

Celebrating Fruition, Hope #4

Church plants and planters can often be stereotyped as just angst young people who want to do things different, look cool while they’re doing it and rage against the proverbial “machine” (or typical church experience in this case). Church planters probably all think they’re the ones that will get “church” right unlike their piers in the surrounding communities, right? Church planters want to be revered as trendsetters or as more relevant than any inferior ministry near by, right?...Keep Reading
