Life in Color - #5 - Easter Swagger

Life in Color.jpg

So much about our lives is frustrating and discouraging.  We sweat pulling weeds and labor against thorn and thistle.  Much of our existence is a spitting into the wind.  That’s the curse of sin.  We even feel it in our own bodies.  But God has a promise for us that who we are now is not what we’re going to be like in all eternity. We are not who we’re gonna be.   Listen in as Pastor Bourman takes to the end of 1 Corinthians 15. 

Life in Color - #4 - The Resurrection Gets you Ready

Life in Color.jpg

The resurrection changes everything about the way that we live our lives.  It changes the way that we get ready to die.  Because of Jesus resurrection we get to live completely ready to die, to meet our Lord, and to live with him forever.  It also changes the way we live until we die.  We live with purpose and victory and hope.  We live not for ourselves, but for him who lived and died and rose again.  The resurrection changes the way that we live our lives.  Listen in as Pastor Bublitz takes us further into 1 Corinthians 15. The Spirit will raise you up in your spirit.

Life in Color - #3 - Signed, Sealed and Delivered

The resurrection of Jesus is everything.  It is that on which we stake our hopes.  It is that which gives our lives meaning.  It is that which assures us that our guilt is gone and our sin is forgiven.  And the list goes on.  The resurrection of Jesus removes the if from our lives so that we can live with resurrection courage and confidence.  Listen in as Pastor Bourman takes us into 1 Corinthians 15:12-28.  The Spirit will raise you up in your spirit. 

Life in Color - #2 - First Things First

Life in Color.jpg

We all want our lives to mean something.  We want to have purpose for our lives, hope for each day, and joy as we live our lives in this world.  We all want life in color.  We’re starting a new series called: Life in Color.  In this series we’re going to stare into the tomb of Jesus and find that it’s empty.  He’s not there! He is risen, just as he said.  But that doesn’t mean the resurrection.  The resurrection is full of countless blessings.  Listen in as we dig into 1 Corinthians 15.

Best. Prayer. Ever. - #7 - Lord, rescue us!

If there was one word to describe your life, what would that word be?  If there was one word that you would choose, which one would you choose?  The one word Jesus would give us as God’s people in this world world is “warfare” and “struggle.”  We are at war and Jesus urges us to pray for help and rescue in this war.  As we wrap up the “best prayer ever” series, we learn to pray, “Lord, rescue us.”  Yet, even while we pray it, we have complete confidence that he will, in fact, rescue us. Who we have in Jesus is not a life-coach or an encourager, we have a rescuer.

Best. Prayer. Ever. - #6 - Forgive us our Sins

Best Prayer Ever Header Option 2.PNG

We live in a relationship with God and daily need his mercy and forgiveness from him.  We live in relationships with other people from whom we also need mercy and forgiveness.  We live in relationships with other people who sins against us; we daily need to give forgiveness and mercy.  This is a prayer about those relationships and about the forgiveness we desperately need to receive and share.  We’re looking at the Lord’s Prayer and today we’re studying the fifth petition: Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.

Best. Prayer. Ever. - #5 - Give us Today

Best Prayer Ever Header Option 2.PNG

We’re now in week five of a series on the Lord’s Prayer. In this series we’re drilling down and digging deep into each petition and prayer of the Lord’s Prayer. We’re studying in the Lord’s Prayer how we ought to pray. The disciples of Jesus saw Jesus praying and they wanted to learn how to pray. And so Jesus taught them. We’re learning how to pray from Jesus himself, and today we're learning to pray: Give us today our daily bread. It's not just a prayer for food, but a prayer for a heart of worship, a spirit of contentment, and an attitude of generosity.

Best. Prayer. Ever. - #4 - Thine not Mine

We’re now in week four of a series on the Lord’s Prayer. In this series we’re drilling down and digging deep into each petition and prayer of the Lord’s Prayer. We’re studying in the Lord’s Prayer how we ought to pray.  The disciples of Jesus saw Jesus praying and they wanted to learn how to pray.  And so Jesus taught them.  We’re learning how to pray from Jesus himself, but we haven’t yet asked the question: Why do we pray? Why do we take time out of our busy schedules to talk to God?  That's the question we answer as we dive into this petition: Your will be done.

Best. Prayer. Ever. - #2 - An open door to heaven.

The Lord’s Prayer.  It is a prayer known and spoken billions of times by billions of people in millions of places.  It is one of Jesus’ best gifts and one of our greatest temptations.  It is a prayer that we can pray at any time and it’s just on our lips.  It’s a prayer that people pray when they don’t know what else to pray.  It’s a prayer that people still remember and can pray even when dementia and Alzheimer’s sets in.  At the very same time, it is a prayer that we can pray without even having to think about the words coming out of our mouth and past our lips.  It’s a prayer that we can pray where our mind doesn’t catch up until we say “Amen.”  It is, as one author has said one of the greatest martyrs in Christian history.  For if wandering thoughts were knives, it would get stabbed a thousand times over in every Christian church around the planet.

But what if it was more than 60 some words of spiritual autopilot?  What if we could learn to pray the Lord’s Prayer with meaning and passion? That’s what we hope to accomplish with you as we study the Lord’s Prayer with you over the next number of weeks.  We’re going to – one petition at a time (except for one combination) – do with you.  We’re going to unpack the Lord’s Prayer with you and fill it with all the meaning that Jesus intended.

Today we’re tackling the first petition: Hallowed be your name. Listen as Pastor Bublitz teaches us on the basis of Revelation 4.
