My Kingdom Come

Most are familiar with the Lord's Prayer in Matthew's gospel account where the disciples ask Jesus to teach them how to pray. After beginning with his exaltation of God, Jesus says, "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Jesus clearly taught that God's intention is to bring the kingdom of heaven to earth. Even though God's intentions are clearly stated in the Bible the concept of heaven on earth is not easily embraced. We tend to default to thinking of heaven as the place we go to escape from earth rather than a place we build on earth. If that's your default - we want to help you reset it and inspire you with a better understanding of what God's kingdom on earth looks like!

Only Human

This series takes a practical and philosophical look at what many categorize as "being human". In the course of our lives we have all felt the burden of guilt over some wrong we have committed or some good thing we should've done but didn't. Most of us have found some relief from our burden in uttering or hearing words like "Well I'm only human". This series aims to give you a fuller understanding of God's solution for realizing victory over sin so that simply admitting that it's a human quality isn't cause to feel better about it, but a driving motivation to conquer it.
