Certainty... In A World of Doubt

Why Jesus Died

Luke 22:1-34 To restore the loss of what is good, in a way that does not allow evil to win and provides complete satisfaction, not only for the loss, but for those who have suffered the loss, true forgiveness must include; the death of what is evil, the restoration of life and goodness through a sacrifice greater than that evil. The true currency of forgiveness is…

When Hell Breaks Loose

Luke 21:1-38 The Bible couldn’t be clearer that the events leading up to the end of the world and the Second Coming of Christ will be quite catastrophic. However, there are four primary views on how the end times (eschatological) events will unfold that we can debate but shouldn’t divide over: blueletterbible.org/faq/mill.cfm In this study we will focus on What We Know…

Who’s the Boss?

Luke 20:1-47 Everyone has to live for something or someone. Whatever that something or someone is becomes the Boss (Lord) of your life, whether you want to admit it or not.

It happens when something you fundamentally trust, love, are living for, or hope in is threatened, blocked or lost.…

Mustard Seed Faith

Luke 17:1-37 Saving faith is truth about the person and work of Christ entering the head (content), igniting the heart (conviction), and outworking through the hands (commitment). Faith is not a feeling, a force or a formula, but fellowship (relationship) with God. It is a relationship where God becomes your ultimate security, significance and satisfaction in life and…

Home

Luke 14:1-35 Desert Breeze is a place where strangers become friends and friends become family (Home). What is home? Home is not just a structure but a shelter from the stormy blast of life. It’s a place of love, laughter and learning. It’s a place where you can truly just be yourself and feel you belong. This world is cold, draining and stressful but home is warm,…
