Show Notes

Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 13:1-5 ESV
This message keys in on a part of this passage, 1 Corinthians 13:5, which says "Love is not easily angered." Let’s pay attention to the fact that it doesn't say 'love never gets angry' because there are sometimes that love does get angry. Sometimes the loving thing to do is to get angry. It says that "Love is not easilybangered". Anger comes in many ways. Sometimes anger expresses itself in explosions but sometimes it just simmers below the surface until some choice moment. Sometimes it ignores. Sometimes it complains and gripes. Sometimes it withdraws into bitterness. No matter how you express your anger, so many relationships go down the tubes because one or both didn’t control it. Learning how to control our anger may be one of the most important things we can do in improving our love for others.

God’s Image Being Restored

Chris Wall • Colossians 3:9-11When redemption takes place in the life of a believer, God begins the life-long process of progressively recovering more of His image. The amazing promise of the New Testament is the shift of moving from being like Adam to becoming more like Christ. The full measure of our creation in the image of God is not complete all at once. But God is progressively creating His image in us as we grow up in our faith. Jesus is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15), and in Jesus, we are being conformed into His likeness. (Romans 8:29; 1 Corinthians 15:49) ...

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 ...
