The Bible In Color: The Lord's Sampler
In our series finale for The Bible In Color, we explore how the original church experienced the Lord’s Supper and how today, what American churches observe seems to be more like the Lord’s Sampler than the Lord’s Supper.

The Bible In Color: The Other Great Commission - David Creek (Luke 10:25-37)
Jesus' parable of The Good Samaritan is one of His most known teachings. And yet, it's also one of the least understood and the most seldom practiced. This isn't doing a good deed for the year. What Jesus is inviting us to is LAVISH, EXTRAVAGANT COMPASSION - and just wait until you hear who He wants us to give it to...

The Bible in Color: "Don't Forsake the Assembly" - David Creek

Light My Fire - David Creek (Jeremiah 20:7-18)
Jesus has breathed life and light into our souls. But sometimes, all we feel is death and darkness. He's brought heaven to our world. But there are seasons when our worlds feel like the lowest rung of hell. And yet, even there, there is a flame blazing in the night.

Doubt - David Creek (Luke 7:16-23)
There is the type of doubt that results in distrusting unbelief. And yet, there is another doubt - a necessary doubt that happens when our perception of God and His kingdom are in the growing pains process of blossoming into a deeper, more vivid comprehension of who He and His kingdom truly are.

The Cancer of Complaining - David Creek (Philippians 2:14-15)
To complain is human. Complaining is an entitled, ungrateful foretaste of hell. But contentment sits mesmerized at what matters and confirms our Christianity in the process.

Christians That Worry - David Creek
Worry is a strangulation device of the heart. It's a parasite of the soul. It is the restless and demented theatre of the mind. Meanwhile, an angelic disposition is available to those who place their reliance upon the One who says "I've got you. I'm with you. And I'm not going anywhere."

This One's For the Broken Hearted - David Creek (Romans 8:12-17)
Though an occasion warm to many, to countless others, Father's Day is not a pleasant day at all. When someone feels unimportant, unwanted and unloved, that can linger for a lifetime. But to a universe of chronically unlovable sinners, the father of all Fathers loved us and welcomed us in as His children - to be led by the flesh no more.

What Is That In Your Hand - David Creek (Exodus 4:2)
God could have liberated His people from Egyptian slavery any way He wished to. But He chose the most unlikely person to act as His spokesperson with what lied in his hand. But what if this isn't just Moses? What if this is the way it is with God and His people, from then all the way to us?

A 65 A.D. Love - David Creek (Revelation 2:3-5)
In our Missing Ingredients series finale, we note that the model church of Scripture who once epitomized love lost that love 30 years later. Why did this happen? How does this happen? And how can we be a church whose love does not rust away?

Open The Box - David Creek (John 14:16-18)
As the Missing Ingredients series continues, we see the most devout and dynamic men we read about in the New Testament lacked what we possess - yet strangely, what we also do not know or invite to possess our hearts. His name is The Holy Spirit.

The Upbeat of the 75th Measure - David Creek (2 Timothy 4:1-5)
We love Paul's Great Commission in 2 Timothy 4. But often in our haste to carry out that task, we gloss right over what all of these things must be done with - patience. Well, the utmost patience at that. How we can live with patience in a society that hates to wait - and what an 18th century Austrian composer can teach us about how to possess it.

The Wish Conversion - David Creek (Acts 2:42)
There are a litany of misconceptions and misunderstandings of what prayer actually is. What it truly is might just surprise you - and breathe unspeakable life into you.

The Church That Parties Together... - David Creek (Acts 2:42)
In a world of social and cafeteria seclusion, the table of the Church is where unlovable outcasts find their worth and their belonging regardless of who they are, no matter their social status and despite their past.

Koinonia - David Creek (Acts 2:42)
In a world of "ME FIRST!" and "THAT'S MINE," the Christian way of life is the emptying of ourselves to freely share and draw near to Christ by remaining close to each others side.

Never Stop Growing Up - David Creek (Acts 2:42)

April Fool's (And The Empty Tomb) - David Creek
