In life, we face hardships. Broken things happen because we live in a broken world. But God cares about every struggle we go through- in fact, He shares in it. But He loves us more than just to cure our momentary afflictions. He’s primary goal is to steer us in the direction of an eternity with Him, through every situation in our lives. In this message, Bro Aaron spends some time in 1 Peter, where we learn what it really means to be in a trial.

The Bible tells us that plans are good. But when we start obsessing over what our future holds, we forgot the One who holds it. We constantly seek and search for our next move, our meaning in life, our calling. But maybe the only thing that we need to be doing is seeking Him. In this message, we learn that there is such a thing as idolizing our future plans. Chasing shadows gets us nowhere, but chasing after the God who loves us is the kind of progress we need to be making. After all, that’s the only true reason that we’re here in the first place. To intimately know the God who loves us.

The Bible puts a strong emphasis on the importance of humility. But what does it mean to be truly humble? Contrary to popular belief, humility isn't a synonym for low self esteem. In this message, we learn that humility is the result of Jesus being exalted in our lives. We may be inadequate, but He is not. We may fail, but He never will. When you allow Jesus to sit on the throne of your heart, pride doesn't stand a chance.

What is the key to knowing God in His fulness? What keeps us in the unfulfilled, never-ending cycles of life? According to scripture, it’s a lack of Holiness. What does it mean to be Holy? That’s a big word with lots of connotations. As it turns out, the pursuit of Holiness might be more simple than you think. In this message, we discover that holiness = wholeness.
