Moses and Joshua

Title: Moses and Joshua

Scripture: Ex 24:13-18, Ex 33:7-11, Nu 11:26-30, Nu 27:15-23, Jo 1:1-6

Big Idea: Mentoring, in the Christian sense, is about learning to be who God has called each of us to be; but we rarely grasp all that we need to all at once. Often it takes a long period of progression. Moses invested in Joshua when he was very young, and continued to invest in him as he grew up in age and in responsibility. As we mentor we need to build mentors who succeed us, and as we are led we need to desire to ascend to greater heights, to honor our mentors.

Paul and Timothy

Series: Has & Is

Title: Paul and Timothy

Scripture: Acts 16:1-5, 2 Cor 11:16-29

Big Idea: There’s no greater example of a mentoring relationship spanning as many years, places, and topics as the one between Paul and Timothy. But they didn’t have a lot in common. Yet, As different as they were from each other, they were united in their pursuit of the same God. When we are looking for people to be in mentoring relationships with, let’s remember that God works in a variety of ways, through people in all sorts of circumstances. We just need to keep our focus on him.

It Is For Freedom

Series: Set Free

Title: It Is For Freedom

Scripture: Galatians 5:1-12

Big Idea: How much time do we spend thinking about our lives–our stuff, our burdens, our jobs, our family and friends–compared to the time we spend living out our freedom in Christ? Christ died for freedom, to set us free from the things of the world, yet we often choose to dive right back in. Freedom in Christ doesn’t mean we won’t have burdens and obstacles, or all sorts of choices to make that require us to plan and to act. But our freedom in Christ means that we don’t have to bear the weight of those things alone.

Are You My Mother?

Series: Set Free

Title: Are You My Mother?

Scripture: Galatians 4:21-31

Big Idea: Are we under the law, or are we under the Spirit? Paul urges the Galatian people to pursue the Spirit, through faith, because the Spirit is all about freedom. If we pursue the law, we are subject to the requirements of the law, and that means that they only way to be saved by the law is through perfection. That’s impossible, which is why Paul so desperately urged the Galatian people–as well as you and me–to submit ourselves to God’s grace instead. Legalism leads to slavery, but faith in Christ leads to freedom.

I'm Not Mad, I'm Just Disappointed

Series: Set Free

Title: I’m Not Mad, I’m Just Disappointed

Scripture: Galatians 4:8-20

Big Idea: Paul has invested a lot into the Galatian people, but when they choose legalism over liberty through Christ, he isn’t mad that he’s somehow wasted his efforts. He isn’t upset that they have been disobedient, because their choices aren’t about him. But he is disappointed that they are choosing the law over faith, because unless we are perfect, the law can only condemn, and never save us. God’s Spirit, received through faith, is the only way to experience true freedom.
