Rank #1: How Ya Feeling?: Okay. Fine. Good.

Podcast cover
Read more
Our tendency to avoid emotions is never more realized than when we respond with “Okay.” “Fine.” and “Good.” The vagueness with which we respond may not be intentional, in fact, it could be the answer we were taught to give. But what if we were missing out on one of the very things God wired within our soul to help us truly live? We are given snapshots throughout Jesus’ entire life of how he navigated emotions, but in the Garden of Gethsemane before Jesus goes to the cross we see him recognize and respond to a variety of emotions as He navigates how to willingly step into what God is asking of Him. In Jesus, we see that leaning into emotions is not synonymous with living in them. We can embrace emotions in a healthy way and in turn learn to give them to God in faith that He will redeem them for His good. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Rank #2: Lamentations: I Say to Myself

Podcast cover
Read more
There is something really powerful about what you say to yourself. What we say to ourselves is often what we have decided is truth in our lives. For the writer of Lamentations, the profound sense of loss carried with it the opportunity to either consume or clarify what truly mattered in this life. Circumstances can consume us with everything we don’t have, or clarify that in God we have everything we need to be thankful. Here we see the writer pen these words, “I say to myself, the Lord is my portion therefore I will wait for Him.” This profound statement becomes a bedrock of gratitude for the rest of the chapter. Although much seems lost, the writer has not lost God. Although the timeline doesn’t make sense, God continues to be the author of time. Although portions that were once appreciated are no longer, the only portion needed still stands. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Rank #3: Mantra: Grip the Plow

Podcast cover
Read more
In this passage, Jesus doesn’t mince words about the radical demands of living faith. As He walks along the road (Luke 9:57), he addresses three potential followers. When the third wants to go and bid his family farewell, Jesus says, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God” (vv. 61-62). These words are hard to hear, but they’re honest. Jesus says, if you’re with me, then you’re with me. There’s no lukewarm faith allowed here, there’s too much at stake to play it safe. Grip the plow, get your hands dirty in the fields, get to work and don’t give up. It’s not hard to imagine why so many people wanted to follow Jesus and learn from Him. What is hard to grasp, though, is how hard He made it for them to come and follow: give up your house, skip your father’s funeral, leave home without saying goodbye. It can seem harsh, but Jesus knew that the high cost was worth the reward. We are called to grip the plow with both hands and not look back. As a Church, we do not want to be content with simply attending a church, we want to engage in a community that is committed to working in the fields and completely the mission. A follower is not someone who simply attends, a follower is personally engaged. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Rank #4: Lamentations: I Call to Mind

Podcast cover
Read more
What do you do with the reality that many situations in this life leave us feeling anything but thankful? As the world threatens to fill our minds with everything broken in this world, how do we live with honest awareness and great hope? Healthy starts with honesty- the writer of Lamentations does not gloss over grief, but dives straight into a passionate expression of the pain that has ravaged not only individual lives, but a nation. While the world focuses in on the great chaos and confusion, the writer instead chooses to call to mind the love, compassion, mercy and faithfulness of God within the darkest moments of a people. The writer calls to mind who God is, using that as the lens by which they see the broken world- not the other way around. In the midst of your own circumstances what will you call to mind? Because what you call to mind will shape how you live. What if you viewed your circumstances as an opportunity for others to see the difference Jesus makes? Imagine what might happen if your life served as a tangible representation of these few verses of hope surrounded by a world of darkness. Speaker: Matt Reagan

Rank #5: Mantra: Empty the Jar

Podcast cover
Read more
When the sinful woman emptied her jar on Jesus’ feet, she embodied the true worship that He had come to find. The beauty of Jesus is only visible to those who’ve seen the ugliness of their rebellion against God. Unlike Simon, the woman in this story knew she was unworthy to come into Jesus’ presence. Even so, Jesus didn’t just receive her gift; He affirmed it as an act of worship more precious to him than whatever Simon may have laid out on his table. Like her, the love of Christ compels us to become informal, expressive, and extravagant in the way we demonstrate our love for Him—even if it means offending a few religious people along the way. In our worship and service, Jesus is calling us to break open and empty out our metaphorical jars upon His feet. It’s not so much that He needs our gifts; He wants them. The gifts we bring don’t just glorify Him; they transform us. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

Rank #6: Christmas Interrupted: Intentional Interruptions

Podcast cover
Read more
At the news of Jesus’ birth, the Magi took intentional time to go to this newborn baby and give the best of themselves to Him. The journey took preparation, it carried with it obstacles and uncertainty, but their intentionality at the news of Jesus moved them to do whatever they needed to- regardless of inconveniences. Culture’s current interpretation of Christmas is one that centers on us- on what we want to receive and what we feel will satisfy us. But instead, we as believers choose to follow the example set through the Magi, of intentionally coming to a baby Jesus regardless of the cost. As they kneeled in worship to Him, they worshipped not because of what He could do for them as a helpless babe, but simply for who He is: the only one who can satisfy the deepest longings of our soul.

In the first chapter of Luke we can see clearly that our plans and timelines differ drastically from God’s.

Because of this truth we can welcome what we least expected in trust of something better than we imagined. No story is quite as unexpected as the birth of Jesus, but Mary’s willingness to embrace the unexpected not only transforms her life, but impacts generations and cultures throughout history.

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

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.

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

Rank #17: How Ya Feeling?: Kinda Stressed

Podcast cover
Read more
This emotion floods the heart and overwhelms the mind. It stops your feet dead in their tracks at the sight of both the crowds and the few. It convinces you to run from relationship, responsibility, and reason. Its name is anxiety. Psalm 55 unveils the various anxieties that fill this life- from the battles in our mind to the battles that surround us. Because there is sin in this world, the anxieties of life continue to meet us at our doorstep. The question is not if, but when. When they meet us there, will we let them in or will we cast them onto the only One who can handle them? Verse 22 is an often-quoted section of Psalm 55, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you.” Notice it is Him that sustains. We open the door to stress and anxiety when we look solely to ourselves or something outside of God for the sustenance that only He can give. But if God becomes our sustainer and carrier of our load than even the heaviest seasons cannot break His shoulders. 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.

One at a Time: One Conversation At A Time

Podcast cover
Read more
We have them every single day of our lives: conversations. And within each conversation we carry the opportunity to press deeper into the heart of the person in front of us. For Jesus, merely interacting with the woman in John 4 was a conversation in itself, but He took it one step further. He saw her, He acknowleged her, and He pressed in even when she stepped back. Jesus took the conversation as an opportunity to invite her into a life she didn’t even know was an option. We don’t know much about her life after this conversation, but we know that it caused her to go back and invite others to experience it for themselves. We can never now how fully God can use one conversation to bring someone to greater understanding of Him. And when the world steps back from these kinds of conversations, we want to commit this year to being people who press in for the sake of helping others experience this true life.

One at a Time: One Dollar At A Time

In God’s economy, the most generous are the ones who truly recognize and respond in faith to the One who owns it all to begin with. These are the ones who see that money may give lifestyles, but it does not give life. While this is easy to say, it is hard to live. This week as we look at the story of a poor widow who gave her all, we want to take an honest assessment of whether or not our lives reflect her example. For her, the offering spoke of the way she lived her life- sacrificially. Everything she did- from her words to her finances reflected true faith in the God who provides it all. Imagine what would happen if we looked at each dollar as a name and gave it over with great faith? Offerings that not only cost us, but that force us into faith in a God who provides it all.

One at a Time: One Decision At A Time

Podcast cover
Read more
One decision has the power to transform someone’s life forever. This is clearly seen in the story of a brother who decided to tell his brother about Jesus. Andrew learns of this man named Jesus who has come to bring true life and a kingdom that never ends and the text says that “the first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ (that is, the Christ).” Andrew’s decision to not only follow Jesus, but to find his brother, became the bedrock by which his brother’s ministry began. Andrew’s decision propelled him to bring Simon Peter to Jesus. And Jesus used this introduction to invite Peter into a life where he would be used by God to establish the Church. This one decision of Andrew still carries a ripple effect that is felt even now. What might the world look like if we chose to look at every decision as one that either brings someone closer to Jesus or pushes them away from Him? Speaker: Kyle Idleman

One at a Time: One Day At A Time

Podcast cover

It’s easy to look at someone making an impact and wonder how they got there. We often assume impact is instant, but more often it comes from the small daily decisions we make where we get about the Father’s business. We begin to experience true and lasting fruit in our lives when we take life one day at a time, and Jesus is our greatest example of this. Each day of his life built upon the other with focused purpose. His great impact came from his great intentionality in all things. In Luke 2 we want to specifically look at Jesus’ example for us as a young boy when he boldly states to his frazzled and distracted family that He had to be about His Father’s business. In this moment, we see how Jesus brought every mundane routine of life to a place of eternal value. He embraced every day as an opportunity to grow in wisdom and stature, and because he did we stand transformed by His intentionality. Speaker: Kyle Idleman
