The Hassle of Love

Nobody is impressed when you love your friends. How can the people of Jesus be a beacon of hope in a hurting world full of hassle? By loving our enemies. As we continue in our series through the Sermon on the Mount, Pastor Ben brings a call to action for us as the Church to change the city and the world by our love. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

Fashion of the Faithful - Ben Stuart

“Spirituality always works itself out in the context of community.” Continuing in our series, Live Again, Pastor Ben Stuart teaches us how Colossians 3:12-17 lays a framework for Christian community. "Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." - Colossians 3:12-17—Give towards what God is doing through Passion City Church: https://passioncitychurch.com/give-online—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p!

Conflict in the Culture - Ben Stuart

Continuing in our series, Live Again, Pastor Ben Stuart walks us through Colossians 3:7-11 and helps us understand how to navigate the tensions and conflict in the world today. How does the reality of the resurrection of Jesus change how we are supposed to live in difficult times? "In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all." - Colossians 3:7-11—Give towards what God is doing through Passion City Church: https://passioncitychurch.com/give-online—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p!

Radical Grace

“Humility is birthed at the foot of the cross."—In the second week of our series ANCHOR, Pastor Ben Stuart brings a timely and important message about the radical grace of God. We are not only reconciled with God through the cross; the cross also restores relationships with each other. The gospel is not worth preaching if it does not have the power to break down the wall dividing ethnic groups. The grace of God is so radical that it makes enemies not just into friends but into a family.—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p + 5p + 8p!

Glory of God

“He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30This is a powerful statement from someone who understood what mattered most to God, and therefore what should matter most to us. But it’s hard, it’s difficult to wrap our minds why we have to decrease, and what that really means. Pastor Brad Jones kicks off a new series, ANCHOR, with a look at the life of John the Baptist, and what we can learn from this famous exchange between him and his followers to help us see not only what matters most to God, but what matters most to us as well.—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p + 5p + 8p!

Life is Hard — God is Good

Almost nothing is guaranteed, except for two things:Life is Hard. God is Good.That’s it; those are the two guarantees we’re walking away with today. The first one, life is hard, no one ever really had to teach us. The second one is a whole different story.God is good… all the time.So what happens when that truth faces off against real life? What happens when we are confronted with the truth that the story of Jesus-followers is a story of hardship? How do we reconcile the mountain of victory we’re standing on with the hardship the story of our spiritual lineage holds?We embrace it and we look at the life of Paul.—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p + 5p + 8p!

It's Okay to Freak Out

Even the heroes of our faith, men and women who walked with God for decades, had moments where they felt like they couldn’t go on. Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. Psalm 61:1-3 David knew what it felt like to experience moments of desperation. If the man who conquered Goliath (with the help of God) as a small child found his heart growing faint at times, maybe we can say to ourselves: It's okay to freak out.—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p + 5p + 8p!

How Will We Make It?

These days are hard. They aren’t what we planned, and there’s no end in sight. So how are we supposed to not only live through these days but to live well in the midst of them?The answer can be found in the book of Hebrews.But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, (you came out of the blocks strong!) sometimes being publicly exposed to reproach and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one. Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.Hebrews 10:32-36Endurance, we need endurance.Here’s the good news. You can have it.So how do we gain the endurance we are going to need in order not only to endure the days ahead but to excel in them?—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p + 5p + 8p, as well as learn more about Passion City Church, our beliefs, leadership and culture by joining us for Welcome to Church!

Where is God?

Where is God?It's a valid question and one that no one should feel shame about asking. One of the wonderful attributes of God is that He isn't afraid of our questions. Our searching for God gives Him another chance to put His Glory and His overarching story on display.Besides, this is hardly a new question.Overwhelming? Yes.Original? No.It's the very same question that has bounced around the minds of believers and skeptics for thousands of years.—With Passion City Online you can join us every Sunday for gatherings at 10a + 1p + 5p + 8p, as well as learn more about Passion City Church, our beliefs, leadership and culture by joining us for Welcome to Church!

20 Inches to Mercy

What the world needs most today, what our cities and communities need most today, what we all need most today is a spiritual awakening. Here’s the good news.It’s possible.Right now, God is closer to you than you think.How close? Twenty inches. Twenty inches is all that separates you from, “then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” It’s the twenty inches between your knees and the ground. It’s assuming a position of kneeling before the mighty God and admitting that you need help. Twenty inches to go from death to life. Twenty inches that change your story from, “I was a victim of circumstance,” to, “I found Jesus, and He stood me up victorious.” God is closer than you imagine today, and He’s calling you.

Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems

According to James Chapter 5, rich people should be sad -- but why? This week, Pastor Ben Stuart explains what James really means when he cautions the wealthy to watch where we place our value. The more we love money, the less we love people. At the end of the day, the issue isn’t about money at all, but about our hearts. When we see and experience the generosity of God, it changes our priorities and our posture to extend that generosity to others. Subscribe to our channel to see more messages from Louie Giglio and Passion City Church: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqWqFGjRBFAU7Bv4Y0CijjQ Like a sailor on turbulent seas, we need to look up and see the North Star: the fixed points in the sky whereby we might navigate the objective realities in life.

Who to Date

“Singleness is for devotion; dating is for evaluation.” Pastor Ben Stuart continues our series on relationships this week with a message about dating. It is not a status we sit in — it is a process we walk through! Dating exists for the purpose of evaluating whether or not you are supposed to run alongside a person for the rest of your life. In the process of evaluation, Pastor Ben challenges us to consider how we view dating: do we look at it with a consumer mentality or a companion mentality?

Kicking off our new series, Single, Dating, Engaged, Married, Pastor Ben Stuart dives into what the Scriptures have to say about singleness. We see that there is a purpose in the season of singleness, and we have to get a relationship with God right before we can get a relationship with a guy or girl right. Pastor Ben reminds us not to miss the benefits of the season we are in because we are pining away for the benefits of another season. “God has ordained a season of singleness not for us to fill it with distractions or career ambitions, but to pursue an undistracted devotion to Him.”

When we understand Christ’s forgiveness of us, that allows us to forgive others. The cross comforts us in the justice of God, and compels us in His love!

Releasing Anxiety

“For many of you, your biggest problem is not your problems, it’s your anxiety about your problems.” Jesus presents anxiety as one of the biggest impediments to seeking the Kingdom of God. For many of us, worries and anxiety in life keep us from all we are meant to be under God. This week, Pastor Ben Stuart reminds us that there is an invitation to cast our cares on Him. Our anxieties are not too heavy for God — He is there waiting for us to release them.

Being Good vs. Being God’s

This week, Pastor Ben Stuart continues the Home Team series in Philippians. We see that Paul is concerned about the people who reduce spirituality to a list of rituals instead of a pursuit of intimacy. This is the type of spirituality that looks like the real thing but isn’t. If you buy into it, it will not only fail you but it will destroy your life. True spirituality is a powerful intimacy — it is not about a list. It’s not about being good, it’s about being God’s!

The way we live sends a powerful message, and as followers of Jesus, we want our activity to promote the message of Jesus. Everything we do should be a response to the work that God has done in us, and this changes the way we live! How do you shine in the midst of the world? Stop complaining. Don’t be a cry-cry!

It is to care about us! True spirituality always expresses itself in unity, and the key to unity is humility!

Whatever

"Why am I here? What is my purpose? This week, Pastor Louie Giglio helps us reframe the way we think about our purpose in life. God’s will isn’t necessarily about figuring out the right job to pursue, the right place to move, or even the right thing to do. Instead, it is to make Him known as you pursue whatever passion He has put in your life and to do that to the best of your ability. This is our true purpose for being alive!"

“A whole universe of meaning and joy opens when we live according to our Creator’s intent.” Meaning and joy aren’t things to be aimed at; they are byproducts of a life surrendered to the purposes of God.

Continuing The Fight series, Director of Community and Formation, Mike Distefano, comes around the importance of community. — Looking in Matthew 6, we see that Jesus commands us to seek first the Kingdom of God for it is the only thing in life that satisfies, and the only thing in our world that is truly permanent. The thing is, we are meant to be in the pursuit with other people. We are a people made for community; hardwired to stand with others as we run after the Kingdom of God together, never fighting the good fight alone.

The Fight

The pursuit of spirituality happens in the context of adversity. We are in a fight to cultivate intimacy with our Creator, and in this fight, there are things we flee from and there are things we pursue. In fact, there are things we need to say no to, in order to say yes to something better! This week Pastor Ben Stuart encourages us with the truth that though we struggle, we have the ability to struggle well, and overcome in Jesus’ name. What do you need to say no to, in order to give something else your yes? “What you think about is what you care about, and what you care about is what you chase.”

Dr. Bock explains three things that help us understand the gap: orality, memory, and eye-witnesses.

Money can give you food on a table but it can’t give you fellowship.” In this week’s message, Pastor Ben Stuart takes a look at what the book of Proverbs has to say about money. It has power, and can be used to build up or tear down. Proverbs helps us to see money as a gift from God and gives us wisdom about how to handle it well.

True Friendship

Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20 — As humans, we’re all hardwired for community. Isolation as a whole is not good for the human machine. That’s why a form of torture is solitary confinement - being completely separated from human interaction. The question, however, is what kind of community are we surrounding ourselves with? — In this week’s message, Pastor Ben Stuart guides us through what the book of Proverbs has to say about friendships. The truth is, the people we walk with determine our path. Are those within your community pointing you toward a life of flourishing or a life of destruction?

Millennial Narcissism?

Pastor Ben Stuart // There is a deep desire in the hearts of humanity to be known, valued, and recognized. In today’s culture, we are encouraged in this idea that it’s all about us, our fame, and making our name known. But what happens when the follower count isn’t enough? What do we do when we seek fame and are left feeling empty? The truth is, we will never find satisfaction in self-absorption, but we will find it in radical self donation. In this game-changing message, Pastor Ben Stuart poses a challenging question to each of us: Are you building a tower for your own glory, or are you using your life as an altar for His?

True Spirituality

The Wind Returns

Pastor Ben Stuart // We all want to be connected to something that takes us further than we’d go on our own. We all want to be a part of something greater, something spiritual. But what is true spirituality? — This week Pastor Ben Stuart walks us through the meaning of spirituality. To truly be spiritual is to be rightly related to the Spirit of God, and the beautiful thing is that God wants that for us. That’s why He sent His son to die on the cross. Not just so that we’d be forgiven, but so that the barrier of sin could be moved out of the way and we could return to intimacy with Him. — Will you join us ask we ask the Spirit to hoist the sails of our lives and guide us through the days ahead?

We are Making a Place for You

Pastor Louie Giglio // Jesus is the ultimate place-maker. Through Him everything around us was created, and by His sacrifice, a place for us was made in His Father’s House. — As followers of Jesus, we are called to be place-makers in our own right. To set the table for the people of our city to sit at and experience all God has for them. This is how we step into a broken and wandering world, with open hands and a place made ready; but in order to do that, we will need to be willing to go above and beyond where we’ve ever been before.

Out With The Old, In With The New

Pastor Ben Stuart // As we continue our journey through the book of Ephesians, Pastor Ben Stuart walks us through the new way of life described in Ephesians chapter 4. — When God gets ahold of our hearts, our way of life changes. Our new identity in Christ brings new activities in our lives. The way we speak changes. The way we treat people changes. These new ways of life don’t come from a place of striving to earn acceptance, but from a place of already being accepted. — When we are adopted into the family of God, we join the mission of being a fountain of life for the world. How are you bringing life to the world around you?

A House United

Pastor Ben Stuart // The spirit of God is all about unity. In Ephesians Chapter 4, we are called to bear with one another in love. When we love each other, we love God. This is the heart of unity. — In a culture with increasing individuality, we may start to think that unity means uniformity, but this is not the case. In this week’s message, Pastor Ben Stuart explains how unity and diversity go hand in hand. When we link arms with those who are different than us, we’re stepping into a greater God-story.

The Necessity of Being Settled Down & Filled Up

DEATH --- LIFE

Pastor Ben Stuart // “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:8-10 — New identities bring new activities. When we accept the gift of grace and are raised with Christ, our lives begin to take on new activities. It is not because of our actions we are saved. Rather, it is because we are saved that our lives begin to look different!

Knowing Him = Knowing Me

Pastor Ben Stuart // The best change is not a change in circumstances but a change in perspective. — In week two of our Worthy series, Pastor Ben Stuart walks us through the second half of Ephesians 1. Here, Paul prays for the Church in Ephesus with a notable approach. Paul doesn’t ask God to do something new for His people. Instead, he asks that our eyes be opened to the beauty of who God is and what he’s done for us. — The more we know who God is, the more we know who we are. There is purpose, peace, and confidence in those who know Him. From there, true life change begins. Do you know what you have? Do you know who you are?

Our Souls + Our Screens

Pastor Ben Stuart // Because the world of information can be tapped into at any moment, it has invaded every moment. — What do we run to when we’re in pain? What do we do when we’re uncomfortable? The truth is, many of us tend to look for ways to distract ourselves from what’s really going on within us, usually through technology. — This week Pastor Ben Stuart challenges us to turn away from diversions and toward intimacy with Jesus. What if we sat with our Creator in moments of discomfort rather than numbing our pain with distraction? If we stopped to listen, we might find that God is trying to speak to us.

The Problem with Love

Pastor Ben Stuart // There’s a tendency in us to run from the leadership of God, and there’s a tendency in God to chase after us. We love that about Him when it involves us or people we like, but what about when that same grace is extended to our enemies? — In Jonah chapter 4, Jonah is angry with God for offering grace to his enemies. Jonah’s problem is with love. This week Pastor Ben Stuart challenges us with this question: Do we have a problem with love like Jonah does? Are we able to extend the same grace to others that God has extended to us? — While we were Jesus’s enemies, He died for us. Having experienced this great love, may we share the same love to everyone in our lives! After all, those who know grace show grace.

For the Love of the Lost

Pastor Ben Stuart // The grace of God is powerful enough to save anyone. The heart of God is compassionate enough to want to. — If your heart is going to beat in rhythm with God’s, you need to know what His heart is like. God never counts people out. In compassion, He moves toward the hurting. He dives into the depths and rescues the lost, and He doesn’t stop there! He uses our pain as a platform to invite us into His rescue mission. — God used Jonah’s biggest embarrassment for his biggest ministry, and He can do the same with us. We don’t have to have mountains of wisdom, we just have to need God share how His grace met us in our mess.

Grace Beneath the Waves

Pastor Ben Stuart // There’s a tendency in God to chase us and give us life, not because of something beautiful in us; because of something beautiful in Him. — That's the thing about a gift. Whether you feel worthy or not doesn’t matter. God's love is not motivated by or contingent upon your worthiness, after all, grace is when undeserving people receive an unbelievable gift from an unobligated giver. — Grace is a gift, and to honor the Giver we have to not only accept, but enjoy the gift.

Running and Chasing

Pastor Ben Stuart // Washington D.C. In 1981 Steve Callahan's 21-foot sailboat was holed beyond repair sometime in the middle of the night. For the next 76 days he drifted in nothing but a life raft. Having lost a third of his body weight, dehydrated and starving, Steve Callahan fashioned three pencils into a device that allowed him to gather his bearings from two fixed points in the sky, steer himself into a current, and survive. — Fixed points are the only things that we can really use to find our bearings, and in this message from Pastor Ben Stuart we look at the journey of Jonah to find two fixed realities that we can use to know the direction God is wanting us to head, and we must, for the storms are coming and without the proper directions we will not make it through.

The Hero

Pastor Ben Stuart // We all love stories; tales of good and evil, legends of heroes and tragedies of villains. It's why we flood into bookstores and theatres, to escape into stories we believe could never be our own. — But here's the thing, many of us will walk through life without realizing that we are actually a part of the greatest story that has ever unfolded. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus isn't isolated to scriptures and sermons, it's the moment where all of our stories went from hopeless to filled with possibility. — Afterall we are all guilty, separated from God by our sinful nature. A cursory glance around proves to you no matter what your thoughts on God that there is something broken in humanity. But Easter, Easter is the realization of the greatest Hero of all time. A Savior who took on the Cross for each of us; declaring the death of death and the beginning of Life for all who put their faith in Him.
