When all the people woke up on the first Sunday after Jesus’ death & burial, what do you think their expectations for that day were? What are your expectations for today? Many of us little to no expectations, not because we do not believe, but because there are other things in the way. These things make us feel “stuck”. This morning we are going to be reminded that the Resurrection of Jesus overcomes our lowest expectations and empowers us to move forward with our lives

The earthy life of Jesus is hemmed in by scandal. From a human point of view, his birth was scandalous and so was his death. The Apostle Paul tells us that the Cross of Jesus is a “stumbling block” an “offense” or a “scandal” to those who hear about it. Today, the cross is still a scandal that reveals God’s love, forgiveness, and path to salvation.

All of us came this morning seeking something to help us with a need. A need to contend with worry, a need to have a better marriage, a need for a stronger faith. While most of our needs vary person-to-person, there is one need that we share. It is a need that shows no distinction, it is a need that does not care who we are, where we have come from, or where we are going. This morning God is going to use His word to remind of us our need to deal with sin and to encourage us to seek out His forgiveness.

What does faith need to thrive? the Bible? God, Jesus, and the HS? Others? The answer to the previous questions is ‘Yes’ to all the above. There is another essential element that is needed for faith to thrive and be great and it has everything to do with attitude. This morning we are going to learn from the Canaanite Woman that ‘faith needs steadfastness’ to be great.God, Jesus, Faith, Great, Steadfast, Bold, Persistence, Firmness, Determination

Many times throughout his ministry, the Gospels records that people were ‘amazed’ at Jesus. Have you ever wondered what it would take to amaze Jesus? This morning a surprising individual from Capernaum, a nameless Centurion, will teach us about a great faith that amazes even Jesus.

As we continue our quest of building an Unwavering Faith, our attention turns to Jesus and what He says about faith. This morning Jesus will remind us that if we have faith “nothing is beyond the power of God through Jesus”. Also Jesus will tell us that an unwavering faith is not equal to a perfect faith.

God challenged Isaiah to preach His word to the Jews at a critical point in history. Similarly God challenges Christians to be involved and be fruitful. However, sometimes poor attitude, a lack of recognition of opportunities, matters of convenience and lack of preparation can keep Christians from being productive. This morning we will explore our acceptance of God’s challenge.
