How To Make Jesus Smile

Listen to, "How To Make Jesus Smile" by Greg Sidders, Sunday 09-29-13

Do think Jesus ever smiles?

More importantly, do you think He smiles when He thinks of you? I think that depends on whether you are living for the dot or for the line. 

But what does living for the line look like? What specific things can we do to put a smile on Jesus' face, both now and when we stand before Him on Judgment Day? We'll find out this message that I think is one of the most encouraging messages in our series on Revelation.

Notes and Discussion Questions: Jesus Unveiled: Revelation 1:9-20

Notes and Discussion Questions: Jesus Unveiled: Revelation 1:9-20

Jesus Unveiled: Revelation 1:9-20

Listen to, "Jesus Unveiled: Revelation 1:9-20" by Greg Sidders, from Sunday 09-22-13

Someday, everyone (including you) will come face-to-face with Jesus Christ. How does that thought strike you?
Your answer to that question is no doubt influenced by your mental picture of Jesus. It's how you see Him now that impacts how you feel about seeing Him later.

But what if you don't see Him as He really is? Better to have your vision corrected now than to be shocked later, right?

In this message, we will study together Revelation 1:9-20, a passage that shows us a current portrait of Jesus--one that will prepare us for our upcoming face-to-face encounter.

Outline and Discussion Qestions / Live For The Line: Revelation 1:1-9

PDF Outline and Discussion Notes, Live for the Line: Revelation 1:1-9

Live For The Line: Revelation 1:1-9

Listen to, "Live For The Line: Revelation 1:1-9"

On the timeline of eternity, your earthly life is only a dot. Are you living for the dot, or for the line?

I realize that a question like that is no casual one, and that it may surface other questions, like Why should I live for the line? and Who says I can't do both? and What does living for the line look like?

Would you believe that the clearest answers to questions like those come from what for many of us is the most confusing book of the Bible?  It's when we read Revelation as it was meant to be read that the fog clears. Join us as we venture into this mind-blowing and life-changing book.

Notes and Discussion Questions: Silent No More

PDF notes and discussion questions for, "Silent No More" by Greg Sidders

Silent No More

Listen to, "Silent No More" by Greg Sidders, Sunday 09-08-13

Isn't it ironic that we say the least about what matters most? Our faith in Jesus has changed our life and our destiny, and we ache for others to get in on this outpouring of God's grace, yet we can't muster the courage to tell them about it. 

How do we get what is in our heart to come out of our mouth? There are answers to that question in the Bible, none of which relies on guilt motivation or human willpower. In this message Greg is excited to share ideas that can make this the year that God uses you to help others live forever.

Why You Exist

"Oh I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
Hi-dee-ho, here I go,
Lookin' for my missin' piece."

So sings the almost round character in Shel Silverstein's children's story, beloved by adults because we are familiar with the search for whomever or whatever it is that we know would makes us whole, if only we could find him, her or it.

Have you found your missing piece yet? I think we'll all find what we've been looking for in Greg's message.
