    XXII - The Satisfied Life (Week 2)

    24/07/2020

    XXII - The Satisfied Life (Week 2)In a culture that prizes self-sufficiency and rugged individualism, embracing our identity as God's sheep doesn't come naturally. However much we may value our personal agency, no amount of savvy can measure up against the kindest, wisest, most loving Being in the universe. Psalm 23:2 depicts the Shepherd God leading us, his sheep, to green pastures, quiet waters, and soul refreshment. That is the picture of the spiritual life - it is the ongoing process of allowing God to be our Shepherd. As we embrace our identity as God’s sheep and learn to recognize and follow our Shepherd God's voice, we will be led to the deep soul refreshment and rest that only God can give.

  • A World of Trouble: Good Grief (Lament)

    A World of Trouble: Good Grief (Lament)

    08/06/2020

    A World of Trouble: Good Grief (Lament)Join pastors Matt Hammett and Damean Easter as we continue our message series, "A World of Trouble: Life in the Midst of Anxiety". As Scripture famously says, Jesus wept. However, most of us don't know how to practice good grief. We avoid grief because we’re afraid of the pain it will cause, but the truth is that good grieving can actually heal that pain and bring us more in touch with the pain of the world and the joy of the Lord. This message from Pastor Matt is about how we learn to lament like Jesus. Access the Lament Worksheet here: https://diveintoflood.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Lament-Worksheet.pdf

    28/05/2020

    A World of Trouble - Grace for PerfectionistsToday we're continuing our series called A World of Trouble: Life in the Midst of Anxiety. There’s a level of anxiety in our world today, so much that is unknown and uncertain about the future, our health, finances, jobs, kids, and loved ones, that many of us can’t help but feel stressed and anxious. Jesus tells us in John 16 that in this world there will be trouble, but he also offers us hope, and a way of life and relationship with him that isn’t dominated by worry. This series is about the life Jesus offers us - a life marked by God’s peace and non-anxious presence. A life that is grounded in the unshakeable kingdom of God.

    EASTER | Strength for Today Bright Hope for Tomorrow

    30/04/2020

    EASTER | Strength for Today Bright Hope for TomorrowIn the moments in-between - after the death but before the resurrection of Jesus. In many ways, it’s like being in the eye of a storm - a moment of calm in the midst of turmoil.  I imagine this was a day of immense sorrow and disorientation for the first disciples, freshly grieving the loss of their friend and Lord, Jesus. You see, they didn’t know what you and I know. They didn’t know that there was a new day dawning. They didn’t know Easter Sunday was coming.

  • Still Small: Stepping Out

    Still Small: Stepping Out

    25/02/2020

    Still Small: Stepping OutAs we grow older, we become more risk-averse. We try to avoid being hurt or making mistakes. But the rule of risk and reward still applies - it is only through taking risks and trying something new that we learn just what we’re capable of. In the spiritual life, this means listening closely to God, discerning where we think he might be leading us, and then taking the leap. We may be right, we may be wrong, but we’ll never know if we don’t dive in.This Sunday we conclude our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life by looking at what God is inviting us to step into next.

  • Still Small: Indifference

    Still Small: Indifference

    18/02/2020

    Still Small: IndifferenceCulture tells us that only those who remain relentlessly driven and laser-focused achieve their dreams. We believe that we can get what we want by gripping tight to our goals and never letting go. But God beckons us into another way of being, a way that requires surrender, and a willingness to relinquish even our deepest wants and desires for the sake of what God desires for us. This is counter-intuitive, confounding even, but it is the only path toward truly discerningand doing God’s will.This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, by looking at how we learn to embrace the freedom that comes with letting go.

    Still Small: One Track MindFor followers of Jesus seeking to discern and do God’s will, we need to pay close attention to when, how, and how often we’re turning to our own logic, reason, and intellect to make decisions. Since God has given us this incomparable tool, we also ought to trust God to guide us in how to use it for our good and God’s glory.This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, by looking at how to use our heads in the practice of discernment.

  • Still Small: Wise Council

    Still Small: Wise Council

    03/02/2020

    Still Small: Wise CouncilWhen it comes to making decisions in our own lives, it’s essential to surround ourselves with people who will listen to us, but who will also listen to God on our behalf - and then tell us the truth in love, even if it’s not what we want to hear. The same is true for being a voice in the lives of others; we need to listen well to them and to God for them, without personal agenda or ulterior motive. In the church, this is communal discernment, and it’s one of the fundamental pillars of discerning God’s presence and activity in the world.This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, exploring how we practice being a community who discerns.
