A Love Story

Listen to "A Love Story" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 3-25-18

You know God loves the world collectively, but how can you be sure He loves you personally? 

It's not by interpreting your circumstances, because they are always changing, sometimes arguing for God's love, sometimes arguing against it. No, there has to be something more reliable, more unchanging.

There is. We'll focus on it this Sunday at White Pine.

Why People Reject Jesus

Listen to "Why People Reject Jesus" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 3-18-18

Some people say "I can't" when what they really mean is "I won't."

They say that what is keeping them from Jesus is an unconvinced mind, but the real issue is an unwilling heart.

This Sunday at White Pine, in our study of Mark 11:27--12:27, we are going to see through the intellectual objections of Christ's critics into the motives of their hearts ... and perhaps discover what lies beneath our own reluctance to go all in.

Jesus Under Pressure

Listen to "Jesus Under Pressure" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 3-11-18

"True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure. The greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation."

It was Robert McKee who wrote that, and we know it's true, because we have seen it in our own lives and in the lives of others.  Pressure reveals character.

This Sunday at White Pine, in our study of Mark 10:46--11:25, we will see what character traits Jesus displayed when He was under pressure. I think it will increase both your reverence for Him and your desire to be more like Him.

Descending Into Graeatness

Listen to "Descending Into Greatness" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 3-4-18

"We are built for significance," wrote Joe Stowell. "Our problem is not that we search for it, but that we search for it in all the wrong places."

OK, then, what's the right place?

In Mark 10:32-45, Jesus gives us a clear and unforgettable answer to that question. If you want to be a truly significant person--dare I say, a great person--don't miss this Sunday's service.
