    I. The Apostles met adversity (vs 17-26).

    Prayer Time….It’s the best time!
    Series: This is Us
    Nehemiah 1 - 2
     
    The Point: The Bible is full of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary tasks to the glory of God. Prayer is always a central figure in the accomplishment of extraordinary work.
     
    I. Prayer unpacked.
    II. Prayer unleashed.

    Baptism: Somebody Testify
    Series: This is Us
     
     
    Acts: 16:30-34
     
    The Point: Baptism isn't just a number that is counted for church records. It's an individual's testimony of a life that has been restored, but it is also a call for accountability from his or her church family as the new believer walks the path of discipleship.
     
    I. Baptism is deeply personal.
    II. Baptism is unashamedly public.

    Ecclesiology: If this is us, what do we do? Part 2
    Series: This is Us
     
    I Peter 2:5-9; Hebrews 4:14-16
     
    The Point: The local church is a concentrated collection of the "hands and feet" of Jesus. It is also a place for the ministry of the Holy Spirit to work. We may think we can survive without committing to it, but how can we say we're committed to Jesus when we only have passive interest in that which He loves most, His bride.
     
    So what do we do with this?
     
    I. We repent.
    II. We gather:
          A. To remember.
          B. To forget.
    III. We obey.

    Ecclesiology: The Really Is Us
    Series: This is Us
    Ephesians 2:17-22
     
    The Point: The local church is a concentrated collection of the "hands and feet" of Jesus. It is also a conduit for the ministry of the Holy Spirit to work. We may think we can survive without committing to it, but how can we say we're committed to Jesus when we only have passive interest in that which He loves most, His bride?
     
    I. Religion without relationships should feel tense (vs 17-19).
    II. Jesus creates for himself a people in whom he dwells (vs 20-22).

    Scripture: Inspired and Inerrant
    Series: This is Us
    2 Peter 1:17-21 ; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
     
    The Point: People are always looking for some nugget of truth in what God is trying to tell them. We tend to want to look everywhere but the Bible: God's inerrant, inspired Word.
     
    I. Scripture is perfect.
    II. Scripture is trustworthy.

    Broken people need a healing Savior
    Series: This is Us
    Ephesians 2:1-10
     
    The Point: We're all in the same boat. That's a good thing and a bad thing. Nobody in this room is going to Heaven based on their "goodness". We all need Jesus. So, while the road of salvation belongs to each of us individually, we can walk our paths together.
     
    I. Admit our condition (vs. 1-3).
    II. Acknowledge Jesus sacrifice (vs. 4-7).
    III. Abandon self-righteousness (vs.8-10).

    Paterology: God Is
    Series: This is Us
     
    The Point: God created us for fellowship with Him, but His desire is that we would worship Him with everything we have. We just fall short of that standard most of the time.
     
    I. God is....Just.
    II. God is....Love.
    III. God is....Holy.
    IV. God is....Sovereign.

    Series: This is Us
     
    Jeremiah 25:15-17, Luke 22:39-46, 24:1-12
     
    The Point: Jesus' resurrection is the point. But, before Jesus arose, He drank deeply from a cup. Its contents were meant for us, but Jesus drank it on our behalf.
     
    I. Jesus' death stole our defeat.
    II. Jesus' resurrection assured our victory.

    The First of Many Last Suppers
    Mark 14:22-31
     
    The point: We come in. We remember. We leave changed.
