Show Notes

Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 13:1-6 ESV

It's a fact of life that people hurt each other. Either intentionally or unintentionally we hurt each other. You're going to hurt people; they're going to hurt you. How we handle that hurt will is going to determine some of our health and happiness in life. If we don't respond correctly to hurt, it turns into resentment. If we hold on to a hurt, it becomes hate. I have had people tell me, “I don't love my husband anymore....  I don't have any feelings for my wife; it’s dead inside. What's wrong with me?” Usually what turns out to be wrong is the accumulation of resentment and bitterness. Bitterness has the ability to so eat away at the relationship that eventually they are emotionally empty. That is true about marriage, but it is also true about any relationship in our lives. The good news is that we can recover from the resentment and hurts in our life.

The Right Kind of Greatness

Chris Wall • Mark 10:32-45 In Mark 10, Jesus is boldly and bravely on His way to Calvary. Think of the weight of the moment. Jesus is confronting the reality of becoming sin for all humanity. Holy God, becoming sin. It is a statement that comes off of our lips but the magnitude of it is difficult to comprehend. In all honesty, as human beings, there is no real frame of reference to understand COMPLETE HOLINESS. One day we will see it. Jesus with intensity and intentionality revealed in this moment that he was headed to the cross. He told them in advance but for some reason when it actually happened, the disciples were completely surprised by it. This lack of expectation is curious especially when you read Mark 10:32-45. Jesus flat out told them as they were walking to Jerusalem, “I am going to die, be buried for three days and then I will rise from the dead”. He just said it, in plain English. Ok, He said it in Greek. But still, it was a clear resurrection encounter. Sadly, those closest to Jesus completely missed it. They missed the moment because their mind, focus and hearts were on self rather than on the Savior. Imagine the frustration as Jesus revealed such an important truth that was about to take place only to hear the disciples start to fight about who could sit at the right and the left of Christ. They completely missed this resurrection encounter. How often have we missed God’s resurrection encounter because our focus was elsewhere? Jesus told His disciples the truth but they were in no place to hear it. Right now, we should ...

A Purposeful Core Value

Chris Wall • Revelation 2:1-7 ESV Our church has been planted in Owasso and Tulsa to "Love All people to Christ, equipping them on their journey with God and one another." As we begin 2022, we are going to take a look at four churches in Revelation processing the Core Values of our church. Ephesus had the right doctrine, but left their love of Christ. Doctrine is important but right doctrine must be grounded in a growing love for God and one another. We will be a church that lives out a Great Commission Purpose. ...
