Certainty... In A World of Doubt
Luke 11:37-54 Doing the minimum required by law does not make you just, nor do outward appearances that gain you attention make you loving. The pure sacrifice of Christ on the cross provided an unattainable justice for the unjust and unconditional love for the unlovable.
Luke 11:14-32 One of the biggest obstacles to people coming to Christianity is that they think that they already know what it is all about. Non-Christians will typically hear gospel presentations as appeals to moralism unless we show them the stunning difference. Christianity isn’t a morally restrained will (moralism) but a supernaturally transformed heart (Gospel).
Luke 10:38-11:13 Does your life portray the love, joy and peace that you proclaim anyone can experience through the Gospel? There are plenty of good reasons in our modern world to be anxious, but as a Christian you have even better reasons not to be anxious.
Luke 10:25-37 You are more flawed than you think & the world is more fallen than most want to admit but God’s Grace is greater than we deserve or could ever dream. We celebrate the intoxicating joy of God’s Irresistible Grace most fully when we grieve our sin and the brokenness of this world most deeply.
Luke 10:1-24 Is your love for Jesus contagious? To the degree you live in the reality of His love for you, is to the degree your love for Him will be contagious (1John4:19; 1Pet2:9). Your contagious love for Him is the best way to put on display His amazing love for you (Matt5:16).
Luke 9:28-50 We believe that full devotion to Christ (Living for God’s Glory) and fullness of life (Our Satisfaction) are one in the same pursuit (John10:10b; Luke9:23-25). We were created by God, for God, to give glory to God (Rom11:36). God’s glory is best displayed in lives that are fully satisfied in Him (Phil1:20-21).
Luke 9:18-27, 51-62 Desert Breeze exists to help upchurched people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that full devotion to Christ (God’s Glory) and fullness of life (Our Satisfaction) are one in the same pursuit (John10:10b, 17:3). There is a quantity and quality of life that is found in Christ that cannot be found anywhere else!
Luke 9:1-17 The Kingdom of God had arrived in Jesus Christ who was proclaiming it to everyone and authenticating it through miracles.

Luke 8:40-56 How do you hold onto your faith when God doesn’t make sense? What do you do when life doesn’t go as you had hoped it would? What do you do when circumstances seem to contradict God’s love, wisdom, & power?
Luke 8:22-39 In our fallen and broken world internal and external storms are inevitable. To the degree you are able to overcome your internal storms (questions/doubts/fears) is to the degree you will be able to overcome your external storms (people/things/circumstances).
