Sermons on Discipleship

Beginnings

From the beginning, God has been forming your for life with and with others, for the good of the world around you. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Faith works

Saying yes to Jesus and helping others do the same can lead to purposeful and life-giving journeys of faith. But many of us struggle to talk about our faith or struggle to share our faith well. One of Jesus’ first disciples learned the key to sharing faith in powerful ways even in the face of opposition. And we can put that into practice for ourselves.

Wisdom for the Heart

Words are powerful. They can change people’s lives. They can change the world around us. But they also hold the keys to changing our own hearts.

Wisdom for Working it Out

If you want to know what you believe, look at what you do. We can say all kinds of things about the things we believe to be true, but the proof is in the doing. What kind of faith saves? or Does salvation come when we simply believing the right things? or Sola Fide or something more? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace…

Wisdom for Our Wants

Wisdom tells us to do whatever it takes to restore, renew, or rediscover our life with God. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Wisdom for Living

We all know that listening, reading, or hearing someone’s words is not the same thing as DOING what someone says. So why is it that so many of us in the church think that coming to church to hear the word of God is the same thing as doing the word of God? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Pray in the Crux of the Moment

What do we do in times of stress, crisis, even opportunity? Does prayer really make a difference? Isn’t prayer just religious superstition? Whether it be in the face of national tragedy or a profound personal need, in the crux of the moment where a Jesus type of miracle is needed, we must pray as Jesus did. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel…

On Becoming Butterflies

Whatever else people might want to say about Jesus, the one thing everybody seems to agree on, is that he lived a good and beautiful life. But as remarkable as Jesus’ life was, the more remarkable thing might be that he expected his followers to live equally good and beautiful lives. How is that possible? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching…

Deeper

Broken relationships can result in broken insides too. Can the same be true for someone’s relationship with God? If there was something to do to sustain it when circumstances are bad and the positive feelings are gone, what could we do? Psalm 130 may just hold the answer.

From Status to Service

We have all been through change, and while looking at the world around us we often think change is needed. But why? Why do we feel the need for change? And how do we go about working for change? However we feel about Jesus, he changed the world. Jesus was a changemaker. What can we learn from Jesus about bringing about good change that lasts? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the…

Body & Soul

Are we physical beings having a spiritual experience, or spiritual beings having a physical experience? What happens to us after we die? What does God say about sex? How do we care for our souls? We live well when we care for our bodies and our souls, because we need both to be fully human. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching…
