Speaker: Jon Kopp - Due to technical difficulties, only part of this sermon was recorded. "Let us be courageous and rejoice always, believing that we are safe. Let us consider that the Lord is with us, who broke evil’s power. Let us consider and lay to heart that while the Lord is with us, our foes can do us no hurt…If they see us rejoicing in the Lord, contemplating the bliss of the future, mindful of the Lord, deeming all things in His hand, and that no evil spirit has any strength against the Christian, nor any power at all over us— they are discomfited and turned backwards. Thus, if we are wishful to despise the enemy, let us ponder over the things of the Lord, and let the soul ever rejoice in hope." (Athanasius) Big idea: In Jesus, we have courageous joy. Because, in Jesus, 1. sorrow is transformed, 2. Prayer is answered, 3. Victory is secure. #1 In Jesus, Sorrow is Transformed. a. Sorrow is inevitable b. Sorrow is productive #2 In Jesus, Prayer is Answered. a. When we pray in Jesus’ name. b. Because the Father Himself loves us. #3 In Jesus, Victory is secure. a. Not secure in ourselves. b. Secure in Jesus - the overcomer.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Imagine a beloved family member looking at you and saying, "Trust me, it would be better for you if I go away forever." How would you feel? Confused? Abandoned? Rejected? Afraid? All these feelings and more the disciples felt as Jesus told them he was going to his Father in heaven. But he left something for them, something far better than the typical inheritance we might think about when someone is passing away. he promises them the inheritance of the Helper. He will be what they need and more than what they expect. He will love them, leave them, guide them, teach them. he will glorify Jesus and will convict the world. How will you respond to the work of the Helper in your life?

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - “Life is filled with choices and every choice has consequences. In grammar school, a student who befriends an unpopular boy or girl will lose friends and be made fun of. In high school, a student who refuses to give up his or her virginity will lose dates and be laughed at. In the workplace, if you live a life of integrity you’ll be passed over for a promotion. In the senior years, if you invest your time and money in the church you’ll miss out on various memories and material possessions. In the political realm, if you’re vocal about your favorite candidate, there will be those who disagree with you. In the spiritual realm, if you follow Jesus Christ, you will be hated. That’s right: HATED! Whether you like it or not, the Bible is clear that Christians will be hated and rejected by the world.” - Keith Krell

Speaker: Jon Kopp - Our sin is a destructive introspection that turns away from God and in on ourselves. In Biblical change, God creates in us a fundamental extrospection that causes us to look outside ourselves to relate to God and others rightly.

Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - Today we continue reading the farewell disclosure of Jesus, to his disciples. We hit a very familiar passage to many Christian, John 15. We find the last of Christ’s “I AM” statements in this passage. “I AM THE TRUE VINE”. The passage is steeped in the metaphor of the vine and its branches. Join us as we take a look, and what it means for Christ to be the Vine, and for us to be its branches. As we do that we will explore what it means to abide in Christ. The term abide is occurs eleven times in this passage. We will see what it look at the truly spectacular privilege of what it means to be a fruit bearing member of God’s vine.

Speaker: Jon Kopp - In the the heat of circumstances, we can become disoriented. Our goal today is to orient ourselves both to where we are at and to where we are headed, because we don’t measure biblical change by end destinations alone. The Living God meets us as we acknowledge where we are (Location) and turn our hearts towards Him (Direction).

Speaker: Josh MacAvoy - In John 14:15-31, we step right back into the farewell discourse of Jesus Christ. The Passover meal is finished, but instead of quiet conversation and close fellowship, the scene is marked by turmoil, troubled hearts, and a fearful future. Betrayal and denial is close at hand. The master is leaving, to go somewhere, but the disciples cannot follow. Everything familiar and stable is falling apart. It is in this context of troubled hearts and fearful futures that Jesus gives the gift of grace, the gift of the Helper, and the gift of love

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Today, if your heart is troubled and you’re feeling confused, concerned, and overwhelmed, you’re in good company. In John 14, Jesus’ disciples felt the very same way. At the ripe young age of thirty-three, their Lord was leaving them. The disciples were not expecting this. They were counting on Jesus being around for a very long time. They were anticipating Jesus to set them free from Roman oppression, and they were preparing to rule and reign with Him. Now it finally begins to dawn on them that Jesus is going to die, and their hearts are heavy and deeply troubled. Fortunately, Jesus addresses His disciples’ heart trouble with some heart-to-heart words. He says to them and to us: “Believing leads to seeing.” (Keith Krell)

Speaker: Jon Kopp - Martin Luther summarized our growth in the Christian life this way, "This life, therefore, is not righteousness but growth in righteousness, not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it; the process is not yet finished but it is going on; this is not the end but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.” In this first of four lessons, we look at both the final destination God's process of change and the circumstances we face along the way.
