Resilient: Focused on Compassion

Psalm 41:1-2

Scripture is filled with references on helping the poor. God promises to be there for us when we are there for the poor. Plus, when we see how difficult it is for some people, it can help to put our own struggles into perspective and give us the encouragement to carry on. Jesus showed compassion to us when we were spiritual destitute and in poverty. He made us rich through His grace.

Resilient: Immersed In Community

Exodus 17:8-16

This is the account of Aaron and Hur holding up Moses' arms so that the Israelites could experience victory. The idea here is that there are times, especially during difficulties, when we can't handle things on our own. Jesus has called us to live in community. We need each other. Sometimes, we are the ones who need support and sometimes we are the ones giving the support. We must continue to connect with others even in the midst of pandemic. This will help us be resilient people.

Resilient: Anchored In Christ

Hebrews 12:1-3

There is not greater example than out Lord Jesus Christ when it comes to resilience. We are to fix our eyes on Him. He is our model. He is our indwelling strength.

Love Your Neighbour: The Lips

What are we willing to say about Jesus? - John 4:1-26

Jesus meets the woman where she is at. He is willing to step outside His comfort zone (or at least a Jewish man's comfort zone) to connect with her. He starts where she is at but He skillfully moves her into deep spiritual conversation and ultimately to Himself. How can we model that kind of connection? It is very important that we show Christ to the people that we meet, but there is also the need to speak about the Christ that we love. What keeps us from doing that? How can we overcome obstacles so that we can talk about Jesus?

Love Your Neighbour: The Hands

What actions are we willing to take to reach out to our neighbours? - Luke 5:27-31

It is not enough to just hope that our friends and neighbours will come to Jesus. We need to make contact with them. They need to know that we are there for them and are people that could be their friends. That may mean going to them and that may mean inviting them to come to us. Matthew had just started following Jesus when he had a party and many of his tax collecting friends came. He simply threw the party and brought Jesus with him. This is what we are to do now. Throw parties or make connections but bring Jesus with you. He live in you, be aware that He is along for the enjoyment as well. What are some creative ways that we can connect with our neighbours?

Love Your Neighbour: The Heart

How should we feel about those who are far away from Jesus? - Luke 15:1-31

When you read the parables of the three lost items there are some things that stand out:
- The importance of the lost thing to the owner
- The focus and intesity of trying to find the lost ting
- The incredible joy when the lost thing is discovered

First and foremost, our relationships with our neighbours need to begin from a place of deep love and care. How does Jesus feel about our neighbours? How interested is He in building a relationship with them?

Love Your Neighbour: The Head - What do we believe God wants us to do?

The great commission found in Matthew 28 is for all Christ-followers. Maybe another way of describing it is the Everyday Commission. We need to get passed the frenetic, activity-oriented lifestyle and lean into a calm, purpose driven lifestyle that is focused on loving the people that God has placed in our lives. What if each Christ-follower at ACC could invest in 5-10 neighbors, showing loving kindness and being available to share the love with Jesus?

Love Your Neighbour: Who is the Neighbour?

Break Every Chain: Freedom from Loneliness

Ecclesiastes 4:8-12
Two are better than one
Love your spouse
Respect the authorities
Jesus says love one another

Break Every Chain: Freedom in Discontentment

Ecclesiastes 1:16-2:11; Matthew 6:33
Wisdom doesn't satisfy
Sex doesn't satisfy
Pleasure doesn't satisfy
Jesus offers true satisfaction!

Break Every Chain: Freedom in Mortality

We are all going to die
We are all going to be forgotten
What should be our legacy?
Jesus offers eternity

The Road: The Road to Emmaus

Luke 24:13-35

Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him.

He asked them, What are you discussing together as you walk along?

They stood still, their faces downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?

What things? he asked.

About Jesus of Nazareth, they replied. He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning but didnt find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.

He said to them, How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory? And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over. So he went in to stay with them.

When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?

They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon. Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.

The Road: The Road to Jerusalem

Matthew 16:21-26

From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. Never, Lord! he said. This shall never happen to you!
Jesus turned and said to Peter, Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.

Then Jesus said to his disciples, Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
