The Walk

Jesus’ movement is not doing well these days. In many places where his name appears, Jesus’ people lack their founder’s passion. Where do we go to get it back? Let’s go to the source—the person of Jesus. Watch Jesus’ dazzling people skills as he loves people and makes them believe there is actually a God who knows us. Talk a walk with Jesus. Would you have followed him?

John 5:1-15

His Heart Went Out to Her

Luke 7:11-23

See Jesus’ compassion for bereaved people. His heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones in the past year.

The Walk

Luke 24:13-35

Jesus meets you in the ordinary - so ordinary that, like his own disciples, you may not recognize him. It was only when they’d sat down at the kitchen table that the disciples recognized him. Open your eyes, and things will never be the same.

Donkey Power

Matthew 21:1-11

Greatness is lifting up from underneath. Jesus says to his disciples that the gentile rulers “press down on them...” The donkey presses up from underneath. Greatness, like the donkey's, means lifting up.

Action: You Talk a Good Game

James 1:22-25; 2:14-26

During his ministry, James earned the nickname “James the Just.” James was a man of action who refused to tolerate a church that consumed the good news of Jesus but did not respond with good deeds like Jesus.

Control: Watch Your Mouth

James 3:1-12

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.”  ... Oh yes, they do. You remember some words that were said to you as a child, don’t you? And they still haunt you. James says words can set your life on fire. That’s why God cares deeply about the words we say to each other.

Mercy: A Preference for the Poor

James 2:1-13

Mercy is the kind of thing that we all want to experience-when we are merging lanes, when we have three items and the person in front of us has a cart full. But in ever deepening ways, the Bible calls us to live out mercy, not to seek it for ourselves.

Wisdom: Navigating with God

James 1:5-8, 3:13-18, 4:13-17

Today we don’t simply want advice. We say to an expert, “help me navigate this process." The more complex our lives become, the more we need navigators. Navigation is more than advice; it’s access to higher wisdom.

Perseverance: Pushing Through the Pain

James 1:1-4

Perseverance rocks. We have more clichés, mottoes and slogans about perseverance than any other virtue. Hang in there. Tough it out. And so on. Perseverance is how you go from wish to fulfillment. All it takes is stick-to-it-iveness.
