Summer in the Psalms, Part 4 – “Who Gets To Be With God?”
Psalm 15
 
Psalm 15 asks what may be the most important question we could ever ask: Who can live in the presence of God? What does it require? The answer reminds us that there really is a great gulf between humanity and God, and we're led to see in a new way how much we need to hear and respond to the gospel.

    Summer in the Psalms, Part 3 – “On The Run and Unafraid”
    Psalm 4
     
    We all know what it’s like to be anxious about something. But the deepest anxiety of all is whether or not we are accepted by God or not. When something happens, some bad news comes our way, some tragedy occurs, and we can’t help but wonder, “Is God angry at me? Have I done something? Is this punishment for some sin? Has God abandoned me?” That’s the fear David is experiencing. Yet David brings to God all that he can at that moment, trusting that his security is in the Lord.

    Summer in the Psalms, Part 1 – “Two Ways of Living”
    Psalm 1
     
    When it seems like the selfish and wicked people of the world are getting ahead and there is no reward or advantage to being faithful to God, Psalm 1 reminds us that ultimately, there are really only two ways of living, and ultimately faithfulness and righteousness pay off for us.

    1 Thessalonians 2:8
     
    The Christian life is not primarily about knowing the right things. It is about living in Christ. In fact, many Christians know far more than they practice. So growing in discipleship is more like an apprenticeship to Jesus than it is about mastering a body of knowledge. The gift of small groups that focus on transformation is that they give us an environment where we can grow in trust and focus on supporting each other in our efforts to become increasingly faithful Christians who are growing in love of God and neighbor.

    God uses our relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ to grow our faith in Him. Through those relationships, we encourage one another and see God at work in each other's lives. This is why small group communities are so important in our faith.

    John 4:23, Genesis 4:1-16; Hebrews 11:4, 6
     
    Worshipping God is something that is an expression of our faith in Him, and when our worship is healthy and rightly focused, it not only springs from our faith in Jesus, it strengthens our faith in Him.

    Romans 1:17, Mark 4:35-41 Mark 6:1-6, Matthew 8:5-10
     
    In the bible, spiritual maturity is the same as strong or mature faith. In fact, the only times that Jesus is recorded as being amazed, it was because of someone's faith, or because of someone's lack of it. So when we talk about growing people in discipleship, we're talking about growing their faith in Jesus.
