Do you ever feel anxious? Worried?
Is it a sin? Is it a lack of faith?
Was it a sin when Jesus was so anxious in the Garden of Gethsemane that He sweat blood? (Of course not.)
It's not a sin to be anxious. When Jesus tells us not to worry, that's a word of comfort, not a word of law and condemnation.

Also, did Jesus tell His followers to carry a weapon?

Big questions are answered in this message.

"This is going to be a good reminder that God didn’t call any of us to follow Jesus because He thought we’d be so dang good at it."

"What does it mean that they’ll sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel?"

"It’s a lot easier to die for someone than to live for them—it’s in the little moments when our love is actually put to the test."

"Also, mom and dad, apply this at home—don’t hide your sin from your kids. Don’t pretend like everything is perfect—they will eventually find out, and it’s going to be bad if they think you’ve been lying to them. Show them what it looks like to confess and repent."

If you've ever wondered what the big deal about Communion is...

This is how Jesus saves the world with bread and wine.

"The God who spoke the universe into existence is the One who said, “This bread is my body given for you. This cup poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” Is my body, is my blood. Is means is. We take Jesus at His word. It's a miracle. It’s a mystery."

The blood of the Passover Lamb has to be applied if the person is going to be saved—this is how Jesus makes His body and blood present to save His people. 

When you eat the bread and drink the wine, Jesus has made this miracle so you also receive His body and blood. It’s how grace is given to you. It’s how forgiveness of sin is applied to you. 

'Not symbolically. It happens miraculously. It happens for real. We call it “Real Presence.” Because Jesus has spoken, it’s as real as the blood that was on the door frames of those houses in the first Passover. We make no attempt to explain how it happens. It’s not transubstantiation, it’s not consubstantiation, it’s not symbolic, not a memorial. It just is. We take Jesus at His word. Would you rather it was actual cannibalism? Of course not. Embrace the mystery.'

"The Last Supper is really four meals layered on top of each other. It’s the last Old Testament Passover meal. It’s the first New Testament Lord’s Supper. It’s what every Holy Communion celebrated throughout the church looks back to in remembrance. And it’s a glimpse of the future heavenly feast at the end of time when Christ returns in glory and we all sit down to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb."

"The gift of His body and blood—given for us on the cross, and given to us in the bread and wine."

"To partake in this meal, to accept the cup and drink it is to accept Jesus’ suffering and death as the atoning sacrifice for your sins. Not automatically, there has to be faith, has to be trust—you have to believe the promise Jesus made to you, that it’s for you. But it doesn’t take much faith—just enough to lift that bread to your mouth and the wine to your lips—the smallest amount will do."

“What’s the point of this (New)Church thing? Why does it matter?”

" I want to propose something completely nuts. Something totally off-menu.”

"Every church thinks they have the corner on the truth, like they’re the only ones who really know Jesus. Can we not be like that, please?"

"It’s so sad to me when someone says, “Nah, I already tried that Jesus thing and it didn’t work for me. I went to church for a while. Wasn’t my thing.”

"They met some church people but they didn’t meet Jesus. I don’t want that to happen here. Can we make sure that doesn’t happen here?"

"No one follows Jesus alone."

"As the church goes, so goes our culture. And for many people, church has already gone."

"Your faith doesn’t really become your own until you share it with someone else. You have to share your faith. And you have to let people share their faith with you."

"This is the vision of NewChurch. A way to worship God and love people. I hope you’re starting to see it."

"One of Jesus’ Twelve disciples is bodily possessed by Satan himself. How in the world did that happen? How can a follower of Jesus be possessed by the devil?"

"When we give in to the same temptations, doing the same sins—habitual sins—we invite demons as sure as leaving food outside attracts flies. "

"Giving in to your favorite sins is like putting handles on your soul so the devil can really get a good grip on you."

"I don’t want you to doubt your salvation. There’s a big difference between giving into temptation followed by repentance—and deliberately continuing to embrace sin. The life of a Christian is a life of being sorry for your sin and returning to grace. But it’s not trying to hide your sin, cover it up and trying to get away with it. If you confess your sin, Jesus is always faithful to forgive."

"I don’t know what your favorite sins are but I know you need to confess them, say what they are, admit to them, turn away from them, and return to the promise of God’s grace, mercy, and forgiveness. "
