Think Like Jesus

In Philippians 2, Paul tells Christians that we should think differently. Scientists call it neuroplasticity. Paul calls it having the same mind as Jesus. It begins with thinking of others and leads to God being glorified. 
 



A Little Faith

Four times in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus challenges his followers because of their little faith. Sometimes our faith is too small. What causes our faith to shrink, and what can we do to help it grow?
 



Four Names of God

When Moses goes to Pharaoh to seek freedom for Israel, Pharaoh responds this way in Exodus 5:2: “Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice and let Israel go?” Bob Turner from Sunset Academy of Leadership Training (SALT) is with us this week and shares how that question is best answered by four names of God in the book of Genesis.
 



Nebuchadnezzar

The monthly Area Wide Teen Gathering is at Southwest this week. Their theme for the year is “Hindsight is 2020.” Our Youth Minister, Thorin Turner, shares the ups and downs of the life of Nebuchadnezzar from the book of Daniel.
 



Live For Jesus

Philippians 1:21 might be one of the most quoted verses in the entire book. “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Paul can make that statements because of what he knows about his Lord. In the second half of chapter 1, he explains what he knows.

Missions Report

Continuing our month focused on missions, David Dirrim brings a report on some of Southwest’s mission efforts around the world.
 



Why Are We Here?




The Gospel Is For All

Jesus said that He came for the lost sheep of Israel, but He had several encounters with Gentiles. His interactions with them help illustrate how our obstacles can be overcome by the mission of God.
 



Good News or Bad News

Several years ago, Ford had the slogan, “Quality is job 1.” For Christians, the gospel is our priority. It comes above other allegiances, interests and activities. The message and its impact are too important to let other things distract from it.
 



Go

The Great Commission is a mission given to all followers of Jesus. It is up to Christians to go throughout the world and make disciples who make disciples.
