Trouble

Chosen Words Series Gfx_ThumbWhat do betrayal, failure, and peace have to do with one another? In one way or another, they all relate to trouble.

We continued our series,”Chosen Words,” this past weekend at Eastbrook Church looking at the trouble of Jesus, His disciples, and in our lives. I took us into John 13:18-14:4, exploring Jesus’ encounter with Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s failure. This highlights our own need to be watchful of our temptation to betray Jesus or deny Jesus when trouble comes down upon us.

You can view a video of the message and the accompanying outline below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here. You can join in with the “Chosen Words” devotional online.

Servant

Chosen Words Series Gfx_ThumbWe began a new series entitled “Chosen Words” this weekend at Eastbrook Church. This series tracks through John, chapters 13-17, and includes a 40-day devotional journey that you do not want to miss. This week, I started us off with a look at Jesus’ powerful display of and teaching on service from John 13:1-17. As you can find out by watching the message, sometimes actions speak louder than words.

One element that I didn’t include in my outline that was really important was the three characteristics of true service we see in Jesus’ life. Those are:

  1. Seeing things the way they really are
  2. Stepping inside of a situation
  3. Sacrificial love

Chosen Words

Chosen Words Series Gfx_Web Header

Beginning this weekend at Eastbrook we kick off a new series entitled “Chosen Words.” Jesus’ teaching from the upper room and immediately afterwards, found in John 13-17, is the longest sequence of teaching in John’s gospel and unique in its intimacy in comparison with the gospels. Here, Jesus offers His followers some of the most intense teaching at what it means to be His people, speaking words that illuminate His life and ministry, as well as ours as His followers.

Along with the weekend messages, we are inviting the entire congregation of Eastbrook, as well as any others who would like to join us, on a 40-day devotional journey. You can find out how to join the Chosen Words daily devotional here.

The Real Gospel

Free Series Gfx_FacebookThis weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our series “Free,” in which we are walking through the book of Galatians, by looking at the real gospel that Paul outlines in Galatians 2:1-21. In my message, I contrasted the real gospel with the pale imitations of legalism and libertinism. I referenced fasting as a helpful spiritual practice, and you can read more about fasting here.

You can view a video of the message and the accompanying outline below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here. Mark Lynch did a great job starting off the series last week, so if you haven’t viewed his message, I’d encourage you to take a look here.You will be able to view all the messages from the “Free” series here as the series unfolds.
