Beyond Belief – Rev. Larry Trotter
Main Idea: The time to move from believing in Jesus to following Jesus is now. Topic: Matthew was a hated tax collector. Jesus called him to become a disciple while Matthew was still sitting at his tax booth. Matthew immediately got up and followed him. Many times we wait until we get our act to together to try to follow Jesus and become involved in church. This is backwards. If we have any hope of moving beyond just believing in Jesus to following him, we have to start following while our lives are still messed up in order to experience the transformation Jesus desires to bring.

    Beyond Belief: Beyond Control – Rev. Mike Stallings
    Text: Matthew 14:22-33
    Main Idea: We don’t learn to trust God and then surrender control of our lives. We learn to trust God by surrendering control of our lives to God and finding God to be faithful.
    Topic: Many of us who believe in God have never trusted God enough to surrender control of our lives to God. Step 3 of the 12 steps states “We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over the care of God as we understood Him.” When Peter stepped out the boat to walk on the water he was trusting Christ enough to turn his life over to him. The rest of the disciples stood and watched. And when the waves got big enough even Peter doubted. If we are going to allow God to answer our prayers for healing we will need to surrender control of our lives to God and allow God to heal in God’s way by God’s means in God’s time.

    Beyond Belief: Beyond The Great Lie – Rev. Wil Cantrell
    Text: Psalm 50:15, Matthew 7:7-11
    Main Idea: God has the power to heal and redeem.
    Topic: Though we say we believe God is all good and all powerful, we often live as if it was all up to us. Subconsciously we accept the lie that God really isn’t powerful enough to heal and deliver us. This keeps us in the insane habit of doing the same things and expecting a different outcome. This week we will look at the difference it makes us when we finally start placing our hope in God rather than our own best efforts.

    Beyond Belief: Beyond My Power – Rev. Wil Cantrell
    Text: Psalm 34:18-22
    Main Idea: There is a power higher than you.
    Topic: Life is more than any of us can handle on our own. Step 2 of the 12 steps states “We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.” Many times we lives as if our only hope can be found in our own willpower and best thinking. This way of living eventually leads to anxiety and despair. Hope is found in acknowledging that we were never meant to live by our own power and coming to believe that we have a loving all powerful God who wants to bless us.

    Beyond Belief: Beyond My Pride – Rev. Larry Trotter
    Text: James 4:10
    Main Idea: Acknowledge you can’t do it all on your own.
    Topic: God has structured our lives in such a way that the more we try to prove we can don’t need God’s help or anyone else’s, the more miserable we become – even if we are outwardly successful. Acknowledging our need of God and others opens us to the blessings God wants to provide.
