Scripture Reference: 1 Peter 4:7-11

Peter lays out the foundation for a life of service for God’s people with a simple premise: we serve because we have been served. That means a unique gifting for all of God’s people to be hospitable to the strangers around them. This is where real healing starts.

Sermon Points: 

  • When Do We Serve?
  • Who Is To Serve?
  • How Do We Serve?

Biblical Transformation

Scripture Reference: John 15:4-5

There are few greater questions that a Christian can get answered than the question of “How do I change?” The world offers many paths to transformation, but Christianity is unique when it says that we only change when we abide in Christ. What does that mean?

Sermon Points: 

  • Understanding the Importance of Knowing “You”
  • Owning the Disaster that is “You”
  • Uncovering the Allegiances that Dominate “You”
  • Starving the Distractions that Try to Define “You”
  • Drilling Down the Features of the New “You”
  • Clothing Yourself in the Glory of the One Who Knows “You”


Scripture Reference: Titus 2:11-14

Paul makes an assumption that Titus and the people he leads need to be “trained” to renounce ungodliness and live upright lives. But the whole project has to be powerfully rooted in the grace of God that has appeared in my past and will appear again in my future!

Sermon Points:

  • The Nature of Training
  • The Motivation in Training
  • The Regimen of Training


Scripture Reference: 1 John 1:3-7

When John starts to unpack the reason for his letter, he uses a power packed word that we (weakly) translate as “fellowship.” But he’s talking about so much more. He’s talking about a powerful connection that exists among God’s people.

Sermon Points:

  • The Theology of Connection
  • The Nature of Connection
  • The Experience of Connection


Scripture Reference: Hebrews 10:19-25

The writer of Hebrews makes a dramatic statement about how essential it is that we be aware and commit to being together in public worship. Truth is: we take on the attributes of our Tribe. Why that’s the case is the topic for this week’s discussion.

Scripture Points:

  • Entering In
  • Gathering Together
  • Encouraging One Another
