Rank #1: Normal Christian Life
What is normal for us to experience as followers of Jesus? In this weekend’s message from Acts 18, Brian highlights five key items that were normal for 1st century Christians and outlines how we can live into those realities in our own journey of following Jesus today.
Rank #2: Do I have to love them?…because they really annoy me
Brenda digs into what God has to say about dealing with those people in our lives and workplaces that can be really hard to love.
The post Do I have to love them?…because they really annoy me appeared first on The Vineyard Church.
Rank #3: Don’t Quit Bringing Good News: The Gospel is for the Religious, the Oppressed, and the Indifferent
The Gospel message is always the same truth, but the ways we bring it to others can vary. Brenda shares from Acts 16 about the different ways the gospel affected a businesswoman, a slave girl, and a Roman jailer. Acts 16:11-40
Rank #4: Embodying the Kingdom in Everyday Life
Rank #5: Our Vocation, Loving Christ by Loving the World
We’ve often read the parable of the sheep and the goals from Matthew 25 as only referring to special acts of giving and serving the poor, but what if Jesus seems is relating our entire eternal destiny to how we serve others through our work.
Rank #7: What are You Doing with What You’ve Been Given?
As we explore Jesus’ words in the parable of the talents, Brian encourages us to consider the implications of this parable to our work. What has God entrusted to you in your vocation? What does it look like to be faithful with what God has entrusted to you? Matthew 25:14-30
Rank #8: A Case Study of the “Good News”
Everyone is unique so we each experience the gospel of Christ quite differently. Michael walks us through Paul’s journey in Acts chapter 17 as he proclaims the good news in different ways to different people, all the while encouraging us to do the same.
Rank #9: Advent: Humble King
Rank #10: Work: Vocation and Calling
Rank #11: The Humble King of Joy

Rank #13: The Humble King of Peace
Rank #14: Embodying the Kingdom of God in Everyday Life
Jesus invites us saying “Come, follow me, and I will make you…”. So what is God making you? Michael explores this passage in Matthew 4 and explains how God has created us with unique gifts which, if we follow Him, will be used to fulfill our innermost desires.
Rank #16: How to Deal with Bad Bosses
Rank #17: Working for the Money…to Give Away
Rank #18: Whatever Happened to Hard Work?
Our culture likes to celebrate overnight success stories. We want to think we can all get rich quick or win the lottery. But what about hard work? John helps us take a look at what the Bible says about our work in Proverbs.
Rank #19: Created to Minister
God is often described as a potter and we are His creation. As a potter himself, Dave Blakeslee demonstrates how each step in throwing a pot is analogous to God not only working in our lives but more importantly how much He deeply loves us.
