Recently, I was on a flight from Chicago. Shortly after takeoff, we reached our cruising altitude. The pilot warned us about some possible turbulence. "No big deal," I thought. Suddenly, the plane dropped. A lot. It probably lasted barely two seconds. The oxygen masks didn't even fall from the ceiling. But there was an audible gasp from the passengers as our stomachs seemed to fly upward. The guy next to me turned a ghastly white. Up till that moment, I had felt a bit sleepy, but the rush of adrenaline canceled my nap. I was reminded of the adrenaline-filled incident in Mark 4 when the disciples and Jesus are traveling by boat across the Sea of Galilee. A sudden storm erupts, and the disciples, many of them experienced fishermen, panic when water begins to gather in the boat. Unlike my brief adrenaline rush, I'm sure the disciples worked feverishly to right the small boat. They rowed hard against the storm, but they seemed to be losing. And Jesus? Mark tells us Jesus was asleep on a cushion in the boat. That may seem hard to believe, but I'm sure He was exhausted after days of teaching, healing, and traveling. Besides, we fear what we cannot control. Thus, Jesus had no fear. No aspect of creation fell outside His dominion—sickness and death, all aspects of nature, demonic powers—all of them are subject to Jesus's power. Colossians 1:16 tells us that “in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth.” The next verse adds, “in him all things hold together.” Whether it's airplane turbulence or the turbulence of our own lives, we fear the unknown. But the cross of Christ can overcome that fear. I can't control the events of life, but I know the One who can. I can panic at the waves or turn to the One who overcame death and secured my salvation. Trust Him with your life, and He will secure it as surely as He calmed the waves and settled the storm. • Mike Hurley • We all have times when we feel afraid (Psalm 56:3). In these times, God invites us to rely on His sure love for us (1 John 4:13-19). How might knowing that Jesus is greater than everything help us to have courage even when things feel out of control? For in him [Jesus] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Colossians 1:16-17 (NIV)
Sabbath Lounge takes a look at Colossians 2. What Does it mean to be "nailed to the cross." Is the law nailed to the cross? Is the law still valid and in place today? In Torah apologetics we often hear that Colossians 2 is proof text that the law has been done away with, and the words typically used are that the law was "nailed to the cross." (see. Matthew 15:3) "You transgress Yahweh's commandments by your traditions." And then in Matthew 15:9, "But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” Take a listen, read the passage and think for yourself. Don't take another man's word on this, study it out for yourself. Introduction to a 4 part series. For more information see: www.sabbathlounge.com Find us on iTunes, Spotify, TikTok, and Podbean.

Today on Bold Steps, we're continuing a lesson on the importance of knowledge and how what we think about God makes a big difference in how we live. It's part of our current series called … First Things First … Theology for Everyday Life. We're going deeper into the book of Colossians and learning how to prioritize our lives in a way that glorifies God. And to do that, we've got to make sure our thoughts line up with God's truth. So, do you know Jesus? Or has some of your thinking been affected by worldly sources? To get our thoughts our straight, join Pastor Mark Jobe for part two of a message titled What Are You Thinking?

The magazine I was writing for felt “important,” so I struggled to present the best possible article I could for the high-ranking editor. Feeling pressure to meet her standards, I kept rewriting my thoughts and ideas. But what was my problem? Was it my controversial topic? Or was my real worry personal: Would the editor approve of me and not just my words? For answers to our job worries, Paul gives trustworthy instruction. In a letter to the Colossian church, Paul urged believers to work not for approval of people, but for God. As the apostle said, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3:23–24). Reflecting on Paul’s wisdom, we can stop struggling to look good in the eyes of our earthly bosses. For certain, we honor them as people and seek to give them our best. But if we work “as for the Lord”—asking Him to lead and anoint our work for Him—He’ll shine a light on our efforts. Our reward? Our job pressures ease and our assignments are completed. Even more, we’ll one day hear Him say, “Well done!”

Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. “Because I live, you also will live.”—If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. “And a Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who turn from transgression,” declares the Lord.—We have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace.—You were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.

Lack of Courage: The Essence of having a Sanctuary Do you have a sanctuary? What's your sanctuary routine? We all need a sanctuary and a routine that works for us. A sanctuary gives us room to get vulnerable, cleansed, and refreshed. When Jesus was on earth, He always took time to retreat and soak in the presence of God. We live in a world where so many things happen, and if we do not take spare time to be in our sanctuaries, things may get so difficult, and we might end up feeling overwhelmed. When you learn to retreat, it gives you room to learn more about yourself, gets close to God, gets refreshed and arms you with the courage you need to show up to the world. As we continue our courage talks today, we will look at the essence of having a sanctuary and a consistent sanctuary routine. Listen in to learn more. Key Talking Points of the Episode: [04:04] You have to create your sanctuary [14:34] Why do we sometimes lack a sanctuary and fail to spend time in the sanctuary? [21:13] Donovan's sanctuary routine [25:21] Kevin's sanctuary routine Magical Quotes from the Episode: “Unless you have internal discernment about yourself, and that you're being honest with yourself, you won't be able to tell when it's time to come inside.” - [11:45] “In that quiet place with God, there is healing, development, alignment, and power that you're associated with. So now when you go into the valley of the shadow of death, you can fear no evil, because you've been in that quiet space with God.”- [15:34] “Spending time with God allows you to do the things that God calls you to do in the areas of life where they're not commonly done.”- [17:20] “We need that compound on interest from heaven, to be able to speak life into the world, and lead and be in our workplaces and to lead our families. If I don't have that compound interest that I'm that's dripping from the rain of heaven. How in the world am I going to salt the earth?”- [19:59] “The less shame I have about my relationship with God the more courage I will have out there in the world.”- [24:40] “Every sanctuary doesn't have to look the same.”- [25:29] “Commitment is an emotional connection to what you're called to do, so that when the challenges of life come in your leadership and your performance in your parenting, and in your workplace, you have that much more tools to fight.”- [30:48] Scriptures Mentioned in the Episode: Matthew 6:34 Proverbs 21:5 Luke 5:15-16 Mark 1:35 Colossians 3:1-2 Ephesians 4:22-24 Challenge of the Week: If you don't have a sanctuary, create your sanctuary space. Create a place where you and God meet and get aligned so that you can occupy courage. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/imaginefaithtalk/message

Bible Reading: Proverbs 17:17; Colossians 3:12-17"Look there behind you, Mom," said Evie as she and her mother picked raspberries. "Down low. There are some berries you missed.""Oh, I see them," said Mom. "They're nice ones." She bent to pick the berries. "There are more in the bush behind those," Evie told her.Mom looked toward the berries Evie was pointing out, but she shook her head. "No, those aren't ripe enough yet--but I see some hiding in the center of the bush you just finished."Evie laughed as she turned to pick the berries Mom saw. "I guess we should pick each other's bushes." After a moment, she said, "Remember when Nayori and her mom used to come and pick raspberries with us?""Yes." Mom sighed. "How is Nayori doing since her parents got divorced?"Evie frowned. "Not too good. She's always whining and saying she'd rather live with her mom than with her dad. I can't see why. After all, this way she's still in the same house and the same school--and her friends are all here.""I guess it all depends on your viewpoint," Mom replied. "It's like these berries--we miss some ripe ones and think others are ready when they're not. It depends on what direction we see them from. We need to remember that people see things in life in different ways too."Evie nodded slowly. "I guess so.""You see Nayori's problems from a distance," Mom said. "From your viewpoint, there are good reasons for her to live with her dad. But don't forget that she can see things you can't see. From her viewpoint, being with her mom may outweigh other things. I'm sure Nayori misses her a lot." "Yeah, I think she does," Evie replied. "Nayori used to say she could tell her mom anything.""I think she needs understanding more than she needs criticism," Mom said. "Perhaps Jesus can use you to help her through this. He understands exactly what she's going through, and He'll help you be a good friend and show her His love and compassion."Evie nodded thoughtfully. "I'll try to see the situation more from her viewpoint. Maybe…oops!" She pointed to a bush Mom had finished. "You missed some more, Mom," she said with a grin. -Agnes LivezeyHow About You?Do you get annoyed when your friends talk about their troubles? Do you feel like things aren't as bad as they make them out to be? Remember that you're seeing their situation from a different viewpoint. Even if you don't understand everything they're going through, Jesus does, and He'll help you be kind and understanding like He is. Trust Him to help you show compassion and offer encouragement to friends who are struggling. Today's Key Verse:Give to Your servant an understanding heart. (NKJV) (1 Kings 3:9)Today's Key Thought:Be kind and understanding

Jonah // Our Story Jonah 1:1a NIV1a The word of the Lord …. Jonah 1:1 NIV 1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai … Jonah's Name Ephesians 5:8 NIV8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. Matthew 5:13-16 NIV13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Colossians 3:12 NIV12 Therefore, as God's chosen people holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Jonah 1:1-2 NASB19951 The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.” Jonah 1:3-16 NASB19953 But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. 4 The Lord hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to break up. 5 Then the sailors became afraid and every man cried to his god, and they threw the cargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen sound asleep. 6 So the captain approached him and said, “How is it that you are sleeping? Get up, call on your god. Perhaps your god will be concerned about us so that we will not perish.” 7 Each man said to his mate, “Come, let us cast lots so we may learn on whose account this calamity has struck us.” So they cast lots and the lot fell on Jonah. 8 Then they said to him, “Tell us, now! On whose account has this calamity struck us? What is your occupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you?” 9 He said to them, “I am a Hebrew, and I fear the Lord God of heaven who made the sea and the dry land.” 10 Then the men became extremely frightened and they said to him, “How could you do this?” For the men knew that he was fleeing from the presence of the Lord, because he had told them. 11 So they said to him, “What should we do to you that the sea may become calm [f]for us?”—for the sea was becoming increasingly stormy. 12 He said to them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm for you, for I know that on account of me this great storm has come upon you.” 13 However, the men rowed desperately to return to land but they could not, for the sea was becoming even stormier against them. 14 Then they called on the Lord and said, “We earnestly pray, O Lord, do not let us perish on account of this man's life and do not put innocent blood on us; for You, O Lord, have done as You have pleased.” 15 So they picked up Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped its raging. 16 Then the men feared the Lord greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows.___ Jonah 1:14-16 NASB199514 Then they called on the Lord and said, “We earnestly pray, O Lord, do not let us perish on account of this man's life and do not put innocent blood on us; for You, O Lord, have done as You have pleased.” 15 So they picked up Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped its raging. 16 Then the men feared the Lord greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows.
This week we examined Colossians 1:1-14. The Apostle Paul teaches that the faith and love the Colossians have is “because of the hope reserved for you in Heaven.” We all are in need of hope. What we place our hope in affects how we live and relate to others. From this text we will see the fruit of hope and the root of hope. The Need for Hope The Fruit of Hope The Root of Hope
COLOSSIANS 1:24-2:524 Because the Head of the church joyfully suffered, we, the body, joyfully suffer on His behalf that the world might see Christ in us. SIX MARKERS OF FAITHFUL MINISTRY1) Ministry comes from God, to us, for others. 252) Ministry is making Christ fully known. 25b-263) Ministry is ordained by God for a particular time. 264) Ministry is for every nation, people, and tribe. 275) Ministry is done through proclaiming, warning, and teaching with wisdom. 28 6) The end goal of ministry is to present everyone mature in Christ. 28b Ministry is not measured by efficiency; it is measured by faithfulness.29 No amount of our toil can make dead people alive, but Christ's power through us can.TWO RESULTS OF FAITHFUL MINISTRY 1) Believers are encouraged in Christ. 2:1-2a2) Believers are grounded in Christ. 2b-5

The Power of Knowing, Part 21. We can know freedom from sin, v. 18forgiveness…freedom…fullnessEveryone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. -I John 3:4-10The problem with habitual sin biblically speaking…a) violates the law of Godb) nullifies the work of Christc) grieves the Holy Spirit“He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” -Colossians 1:13-14domain- abilityKingdom- accomplishment2. We can know a biblical worldview, v. 19Two things to notice here…a) “We are from God…” b) “…and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one."“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” -2 Corinthians 5:18-213. We can know what is true, v. 20-21“When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” -John 17:1-3 Mental worship…What do you find comforting about God?If God were to give you a one sentence warning of what you should be on guard for, what would that sentence say?Are you comfortable with God making His appeal through you? When is the last time you shared the Gospel with someone?In what area would you like God to give you understanding today?
Perspective is a funny thing — what seemed so big to us years ago barely registers as a blip on the radar these days. When we learn to focus on what matters, everything else shifts into perspective and we find ourselves ready to face what's ahead. The biggest perspective shift of all, then, is in our faith. 100 years from now, your physical health won't matter. Your friends won't matter. Your job won't matter. How you lived your life will matter, so today we're expounding on that highest of priorities: God Himself. Scriptures today: Luke 9:57-62 // Matthew 12:46-50 // Galatians 6:7 // Malachi 3:9-12 // Exodus 20:5b-6 // Matthew 16:24-27 // John 21:18 // Colossians 3:12 We're so glad you joined us for this message of encouragement!

This weekend Craig is kicking off our new sermon series, The Image of the Invisible. Seeing is believing. The breathtaking majesty of creation draws our eyes upwards in a search for its creator, but it is in Jesus we most clearly see what we've all been looking for. You won't want to miss this eye-opening journey through the book of Colossians.
Mark Booker | Colossians 2:8-23 | Walk in Him | Having exhorted them to walk in Christ, Paul next urges the Colossians not to be taken captive by lesser authorities that will diminish their life. We consider the nature of the dangers, the reality of the church in Christ, and a solution to resisting captivity.
