What Are You FOR?

November 3, 2019 | By: Shawn White |

John 15:12 "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” People are not impressed by our love for God, how much you pray, quote the Bible etc. What brings change to the people and the world around us is how well we love people. Too often the church is known for what it’s against rather than what it’s “FOR”. If we don’t know what we are FOR, we lose our way. Jesus demonstrated his love by being “FOR” people. He was a friend of sinners. He recognized that sin is a sign of brokenness. In the story of the prodigal son, the father’s response to sin is compassion. His love is not easy to live out, but as followers of Christ it is what we are called to do. It means releasing forgiveness to those who hurt us, loving our enemies and always asking the question “What does love require of me?” Before Christianity was called Christianity, it was called “The Way”. What was The Way? Leading the world forward in Love. We lose our credibility as the church when what we say about ourselves doesn’t line up with what the world says about us. We shouldn’t define what we are FOR by what we are against, but rather what we are against by what we are FOR. If we could close the gap between what we say about ourselves and the church verses what the world says about the church, that’s where explosive growth will take place. The way we will do this is by loving people and showing them the way forward in love.

The Golden Rule On Steroids

October 6, 2019 | By: Shawn White |

Loyalty is everything when it comes to relationships so who are you loyal to? The fact of the matter is you can't be friends with everyone but you can be a good friend to those in your own social circles. Beyond that its really about the Golden rule and treating others the way you want to be treated. But sometimes we aren't even good at treating ourselves right. In this message we look at a different perspective for how we should view and treat one another.


What Does Love Require Of Me?

September 15, 2019 | By: Shawn White | Scripture: Luke 10:25-37

Jesus came and challenged 1500 years of Jewish Culture by changing the focus of relationship with God (Vertical Focus) towards the relationship we have with those around us (Horizontal Focus). In light of the two great commandments of loving God and people; in light of the new commandment Jesus gave to love one another as Jesus has loved us; in light of how holiness is about the way we treat others and eternal life is about how we love one another and how the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love (Galatians 5:6), we need to keep an important question in mind... "What Does Love Require Of Me?


Its Horizontal

September 8, 2019 | By: Shawn White | Scripture: Matthew 22:15-40

The Second Great command (Love your neighbor) is often overlooked because we focus on the First (Love God). But Jesus said the second great command "is like" the Frist. It isn't second in importance just sequence. In a society that emphasized the importance of the vertical relationship between God and self, Jesus comes and changes everything but placing the emphasis on the relationships we have horizontally with those around us. Loving people isn't easy. Often times we would prefer to circumvent certain relationships rather than navigate through them. Jesus never said that the world would know we are His disciples by our love (vertically) for Him. He said in John 13 that the world would know we are His disciples by our love (horizontally) for one another.
