You cannot tune in to certain voices or things for a long period of time and not have them impact the way you live your life. We think we can listen to anyone and anything and it won’t affect what we do or what we become. But the truth is, who and what you listen to over a consistent basis will eventually begin to influence the decisions you make. Our focus should be to listen to what Jesus would listen to.

The ball will go where your eyes are looking – whether it’s basketball, football, baseball, or bowling. When you learned to drive a car you found out you can’t look down at the road, you’ve got to look up and ahead to where you are going. The missed shots, the bad throws, the swerves on the road, they’re usually due to us looking in the wrong direction, or taking our focus of the target momentarily. It’s just a physical principle. It’s a spiritual principle as well. What we view and see often determines the direction of our lives.

Do you idolize your body, or do you ignore it? Body idolizers may take a lot of vitamins and supplements, spend a lot of money on health and nutrition, workout equipment, etc. Body ignorers don’t eat right, drink too much, smoke too much, and have a poor idea of exercise. The Bible has so much to say about the body – an incredible amount. And the Bible addresses those who tend to be idolizers and it addresses those who tend to be ignorers. In both extremes there is a self-centeredness that basically says “it’s all about me”. It should be all about Jesus.

Passage: Hebrews 12:1
Series: General
A faith that endures is a faith that sees the finish line, the completion of the promise. It is a faith that hopes amid uncertainty and sees as reality the fulfilled promise. Enduring faith runs with patience through the challenges of life.

Somewhere along the way you will be presented with an opportunity to jump ahead, to take a shortcut, to move closer to that goal you are chasing. And the only catch is that you will have to temporarily abandon your values. So what do you do? It turns out that Jesus was made just such an offer in His third temptation. Examining His response will prepare you for when your moment of truth comes.

Every day people fall into the temptation of presuming on God. You see it in the young couple that spends irresponsibly and then asks God to bail them out financially. The young single who says, "I'll marry him, then pray for him." But what's wrong with that? Hasn't God promised to take care of us? In this message we will explore the second of Jesus' three temptations in the desert and what it teaches us about presuming on God.

It is tempting to feel that God is in no hurry to take care of your needs - like the direction your marriage is headed, the fact that you are still single, or the speed at which your career is advancing. Jesus, too, was tempted to take things into His own hands and His response reveals a lot about what is really at stake when we are tempted to act independently from God.

Jesus promises that he is coming back for you and me. He is coming back in all his glory, lovesick for those who have been brought into his fold by faith. You see, he’s coming back for you because he loves you. He longs for the day when you can be with him, face to face, held back by nothing.

Imagine a cruel parent, who always threatened his or her child with, “If you do that again, I’m going to disown you as my child! That kind of cruel threat undermines any kind of close relationship. Every loving parent wants his child to feel secure in his love. That assurance of steadfast love undergirds strong parent-child relationships. Even so, the loving heavenly Father wants all of His children to feel secure in His steadfast love. After all, before we even existed, He chose us in Christ and determined that we would be adopted into His family.

In this closing message we will learn why the Gospel is so important in the mission of the church.
