Rank #1: How Ya Feeling?: I'm Tired

Podcast cover
Read more
Labor Day was formed as a tribute and celebration of the contributions and achievements of women and men in the workforce. Every year on this weekend, we as a country celebrate the productivity and results of the American workforce. Although this day has great intentions, it has also instilled in us some unhealthy tendencies. While we’ve never been more productive, we’ve also never been more tired. And in an effort to celebrate work ethic, we have begun to find identity in what we do rather than in who God has said we are. We willingly stretch ourselves to the point of exhaustion over and over again, believing the lie that our value is proved in busyness. When “I’m Tired” becomes the anthem of our lives, we must ask ourselves what or who we are following, because God has promised us rest from the exhaustion of the world. Hiding beneath the surface of tired lives and souls is a lack of trust in the One who promised a freedom from lack. No time-management, three-hour nap, amount of caffeine or intentional planning can in and of itself bring us to a place of rest. In a culture that rushes like river rapids, we must follow the God of quiet waters. In a culture that grasps for control, we trust in the Good Shepherd to guide our way. In a culture that strives to rise, we embrace that He makes us lie down and rest. In a culture of exhaustion, we trust that He is the only one who makes an empty cup overflow. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Rank #2: Redeem the Screen: Screen Time

Podcast cover
Read more
In a culture with screens on every corner and in the palm of every hand, we need to have an honest conversation about what it actually means to live in, but not of the ever-changing world of technology. Make no mistake about it, the way we spend our screen time is a clear indicator of what we are following. So rather than copying the behaviors of the world, we want to utilize our screen time in a way that intentionally transforms our minds and lives to look more like Jesus. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

As we conclude this series, our prayer is that through technology we rally around this truth: “don’t let evil conquer us, but overcome evil by doing good.” As a church, we recognize the amazing influence technology can have not only through reaching people for Christ but also in equipping them in their faith. We can confidently shut doors that cause us to fall into the world’s patterns, and eagerly set guardrails around our lives not just to limit our use of technology, but to intentionally utilize it in ways that will bear fruit in this world.

Podcast cover

Social media was created with a genuine desire to connect the world but it has slowly become a carefully curated illusion of status and importance. When the world places a high value on followers and influencers, we as a Church must remember that we belong to each other. We won’t fall prey to the smokescreen of social media, we won’t waste our time building a temporary empire or chasing momentary affirmation, instead we engage every platform in our lives with great transparency and intentionality, knowing that God’s best work is seen through our everyday ordinary lives.

Rank #8: How Ya Feeling?: I've Had Enough

Podcast cover
Read more
In conclusion to this series, we choose to commit to being honest about the fact that everyday frustrations will continue to meet us in this journey of life. As a church, we will not save face with an “it’s all good” mentality that avoids the valleys of life. Nor will we choose to make our home in the valleys. But, we will commit to authentically recognizing and responding to the frustrations of life in a way that honors God. We do this by looking to Psalm 107 as a template of restoration. This Psalm is the story of a broken humanity pursuing a redemptive God. It is the anthem of the person longing to live in the Spirit but still battling the flesh. This is the Psalm for the person walking through a season that seems fruitless and wondering what good could come from it. It is a word of encouragement for the one stuck in patterns they feel will never be broken. It is hope for the person who feels the waves of life are breaking them and redemption for the rebellious living at arms-reach from God. This is the Psalm for saints and sinners, the faithless and faithful, this is a Psalm for you. Most of all, this Psalm reminds us that we are only ever one action away from imitating Christ through our emotions- crying out to God. As believers, we share our stories of celebration and struggle to remember that no frustration can frustrate the plans of God- even when we’ve had enough, He will still be enough.

Rank #9: How Ya Feeling?: Not That Great

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s the answer we give when we can’t fully put a finger on what is going on. It is the response we riddle off to an acquaintance when what we desperately need is a friend. Within these three simple words is a mixture of sadness, loneliness and confusion reduced to the phrase “Not That Great.” When emotions are too great to fully comprehend it can seem like nobody understands or cares. This often leads us to a place of utter loneliness and despair. Psalm 142 reminds us that even when we don’t know what is going on within us, the Spirit can express to God the depths of our soul and rescue us from the pit. Where the flesh allows emotions to hold us captive, but the Spirit helps us live captivated by the goodness of God regardless of the circumstances. For those who need a word of hope, this Psalm reminds you that you have a friend in the Spirit that will utter the words you cannot express, but for those of you who stand on the other side of the prison gates, your testimony can become a battle cry of hope for others.

Rank #10: Mantra: Catch the Wind

Podcast cover
Read more
You could have the biggest, fanciest sailboat in the harbor, but it isn’t going anywhere unless you’ve got wind. In the same way, faith doesn’t move unless the Spirit moves first. When Jesus compares the Spirit to the wind, he teaches us to value adventure and action over safety and comfort. That means we will not be held back by our plans or the comfort or the predictable. The wind blows, you can’t grab it but you can feel it, you can’t see it but you can see it’s effects. That’s the way it should be in the church and that’s the way it should be in our individual lives, the effects of the wind should be clear. So, how do we “catch the wind?” The same way a sailboat captain does it: we raise the sails. We stay so in tune with Christ that even the slightest breeze has us expectant. We get all-hands-on-deck ready and equipped by God’s word and Spirit to do this thing together. And when the wind begins to blow, we raise the sails with anticipation, knowing that the destination will be worth the journey. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Rank #12: Seeing God: In My Universe - He is in Control

Podcast cover
Read more
Is God really with us, or is that just something we tell ourselves to feel better when our world seems out of control? In the first chapter of Job, God blesses everything that Job does, then, all of the sudden, the enemy drops the bottom out from under Job’s life. Messengers come in, one after another, and say, “Job, it’s all gone. Everything…Your livelihood, your family, everything.” And one thing after another hits Job, and his life feels like it is spiraling out of control. For a while, Job tells himself again and again, “God is with me,” “God is with me,” “God is with me.” But there comes this place toward the end of the book where he starts to wonder if God really is with him. The voices of those around him questioning God’s work in his life grow louder, and Job’s uncertainty grows with it. As Job pours out questions to God, God waits and listens, and, then, rather than giving Job the answers he wants, God gives Job the answer needs—a reminder of who God really is.

Rank #13: Reverse the Curse: Graves into Gardens

Podcast cover
Read more
Although the world lives with the end in mind, in Jesus our story is not a story of ends. As believers, we live with the beginning in mind. Jesus, our King, has repurposed death into a victorious rally cry that will echo throughout eternity. The curse of sin has no claim over us, as the cross of Christ has paid the price. Death’s sting has no hold on us—the tomb is empty. As followers of the way of Jesus, our aim is heaven, our hope is tethered to this story of beginnings, and our hands are engaged in reversing the curse. Through Jesus, everything sad is coming untrue. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Romans 8:28 says that we know that in all things God works for good. The words “we know” don’t mean we hope, or we’re optimistic, or we wish. They mean absolute, unshakable confidence. As the world around us seems to be stopping, and as the curse seems more real than ever, we can trust with great confidence that, even still, God never stops working. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Rank #15: Reverse the Curse: Dust to Dust

Podcast cover
Read more
Genesis tells us that God fashioned us from the dust of the world, and it was only until He breathed His breath of life into us that we became a living being. God’s words and actions have always moved in the trajectory of life. So when sin was introduced into the world, death was invited into the story. The implications of death surround us daily- from hospitals, to headstones, to highway memorials, we are surrounded by the curse of sin. Yet Jesus came to show us a life free from the sting of death. He showed us how to live by the power of the Spirit rather than by the pain of the flesh. Although death still has a foothold in this world, reversing the curse of death begins by using the shortness of this life to leave a legacy that lasts beyond this life. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Seeing God: In My Body - He Knows

Podcast cover
Read more
Job’s main complaint against God is not His control, or His care—His main complaint is if God is truly aware of what Job is going through. Over and over again, Job makes his case before God. Job pours out his heart to God, wanting assurance that God really knows what is happening in his life. And what we find as Job does this is something that should bring us comfort when we’re hurting—that God is a Father who knows what we’re going through, who knows what we’re facing, and who has never left us in it all. Job realizes this in this final chapter as he says to God in 42:3 (NLT), “You asked, ‘Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance?’ It is I—and I was talking about things I knew nothing about, things far too wonderful for me.” And that word ‘wonderful,’ it’s a word that you don’t expect to be used in the middle of such pain and suffering. But when Job realizes what God knows is when he truly sees God. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Seeing God: In My World - He Cares

Podcast cover
Read more
If God is in control, then why so much hurt? Why so much suffering? Why so much pain? There are plenty of religions that just try to explain these questions away, basically saying that God is powerful, He is in control, but He doesn’t really care. This is Job’s tension. Because either God has the power to help but doesn’t care enough to do so, or He cares but lacks the power to do anything about it. Job wants to believe that God is in control, he wants to believe that God cares, but as he looks at everything that has happened to him, it just doesn’t make sense. Yet, there’s something within Job, as there is within us, that wants to believe that God is both in control AND that He cares. And in Job 39-41, God is addressing this tension for Job. In these chapters, God begins to share with Job the intricate details of this vast world. Chapter after chapter, God explains in detail the mediocre to the magnificence of it, and as God explains, it becomes clear to Job God’s knowledge and care for everything that lives and moves and has its being.

Reverse the Curse: Thorns and Thistles

Podcast cover

Genesis tells us that God created us for a purposeful, and powerful work. A work of cultivating fruit and creating life everywhere we go in a way that glorified God. In Genesis 3:17-18, God explains that the result of embracing death over life directly affects the work we do in this world. The curse brought both individual and universal implications to the way we define “work.” Sin brought exhaustion to our daily labor where there should have been enjoyment. The thorns and thistles of this world cut away at our purpose and attempt to choke out the fruit of this world. But when Jesus entered the world He shifted careers into callings, inviting fisherman to become fishers of men. He taught us how to allow the cuts of thorns to strengthen our longing for home and to steady our hands for God’s engagement in the world through us. Reversing the curse in our work begins by embracing a God who repurposes thorns and thistles and turns our mundane work into meaningful ministry. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Reverse the Curse: Conflict and Confusion

Podcast cover
Read more
Genesis tells us that when God created us as male and female, it was because “It is not good for the man to be alone.” When God says it is not good for man to be alone, he is saying that man as God intended man to be is good when there is togetherness. As God’s image bearers to the world, when men and women do life together we carry the fullness of the image of God among us. But through the curse, the distinctions meant to complement one another became dividing points to crush each other with. In the curse conflict and confusion between men and women became much more common than companionship and community. Only until God became flesh could we truly understand what relationship between one another should look like. Reversing the curse between men and women begins by looking to the example of Jesus as man as God fully intended man to be.

Reverse the Curse: Naked and Ashamed

Podcast cover
Read more
Genesis tells us that God made us in His image, and this language is so powerful because it is language of identity. Knowing ourselves begins by knowing God, and we were made to be fully secure in how God made us and to walk with Him in honesty and confidence. Yet a carefully crafted question plants a deathly idea into the Garden of Life- that God is not trustworthy.
“Did God really say?”
And this question is one that Adam and Eve allow to take root. Then, when they heard the One they used to walk with, their instinct was to hide from Him rather than confide in Him. This is what sin does to our relationship with God. And God’s response is to ask them a question we all need to answer.
“Where are you?”
From the beginning God has always been looking for those He loves. Reversing the curse of shame begins by surrendering our futile attempts to cover our shame and stepping into God’s life-giving Spirit of freedom.

Like a sailor on turbulent seas, we need to look up and see the North Star: the fixed points in the sky whereby we might navigate the objective realities in life. We need the skill-set to know how to journey through life and how to select the right people to journey alongside. The four relational phases that the vast majority of human beings on the planet will pass through are: singleness, dating, engagement and marriage. In each of these phases, there are eternal purposes to be pursued. Our desires for intimacy are powerful. This power can be constructive or destructive.

From This Day Forward: For Better or Worse

Podcast cover

Every wedding includes an exchanging of vows meant to solidify one’s commitment to the other. And while the words in the ceremony are heartfelt, their true definition is revealed through the circumstances that follow. More often than not, when the circumstances arise, the culture around us cries out for comfort and convenience rather than commitment. But in the “better and worse” of marriage, the example of Jesus is what teaches us how to increase our commitment when comfort is nowhere to be found. By God’s power vows aren’t just heartfelt exchanges for a day, but become holy commitments for life. Speaker: Kyle Idleman
