Sermon: You're accepted!
Today's episode is a sermon Peter preached on Exodus 32:1-14.  We talked about the importance of learning to love and life with people as they are - not as you want them to be.  We  said that this was true of every relationship, especially our relationship with God.  As we learn to accept God as He is, we see that He is exactly what we need.  We also find in God our true and fullest acceptance as God's beloved children.

Faith or Works
In today’s episode we are going to be reminded of the tendency we all have to dissect or pick apart our faith as we divide it up from its original united whole. James is calling us today to have a united faith, one that both trusts and rests in Jesus, but also one that works and does great acts of service for the Lord. Our focus will be on James 2:14-16 learn more at www.pwilliamb.com

Romans 16:1-16. In today’s episode we take a look at what it means to be a part of the church, and what life looks like together as a church.

Slaves to all
Mark 10:32-45 All of us are striving for greatness. No one dreams of becoming a "meh" mechanic or unexceptional author. No one aspires to be an ok lawyer or ordinary astronaut. We are all looking for greatness. And, Jesus dreams of greatness for you too. He has great aspirations for you. But, what does greatness look like in God's kingdom? It looks like being a servant and slave to all. It looks like humility. It looks like a life of service and sacrifice. It looks like Jesus. Jesus didn't come to this world to be served - but to serve, and to lay down His own life for His people. Jesus came to serve you by giving all of Himself so that you could be set free. That's greatness.
13:41
March 20, 2018
You are loved
John 3:14-21 You are loved. Someone loves you. God loves you. Love is crucial. None of us can live long without it. At the very least, life without love is not a life worth living. Praise God that He loves us. And we are sure of that because of what He did on the cross. Jesus stretched out His arms to say, "I love you." You can be sure of God's love because He proved it - not with flowers or a card, but with a crucifixion and sacrifice. There is no doubt about it. You are loved. Someone loves you. God loves you.
14:17
March 20, 2018
Empty
John 2:13-22. Jesus walks into a very full temple in John 2. It was full of people. Full of tables. Full of money and coins. Full of animals and sacrifices. Full of pride, selfishness, and materialism. And because the temple was so full, Jesus did what He needed to do. He emptied it. We need Jesus to do to our lives what He did to that temple. We need to be emptied too - of our pride, of our selfishness, of all our sin. But, Jesus doesn't want us to stay empty. No, He wants to fill us with all of His good gifts of love and grace, mercy and forgiveness, and of life!
11:44
March 6, 2018
Re-orientated
Mark 8:27-38. We all have some misconceptions and misperceptions when it comes to Jesus. We think we know who He is and what He came to do. We expect Him to work on our time, give us what we want, and work in ways we want Him to. We all need to be re-orientated to who Jesus actually is and what Jesus actually came to to. Jesus isn't always who we think He is - He is far, far greater. He is the savior we desperately need!
