The Applause Of Heaven

Watch "The Applause Of Heaven" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church April 15, 2018





When God thinks of you, does He smile?
 
If the face of Jesus is any indication, the answer is: It depends. How God feels about you is not unrelated to your behavior.
 
So what kind of behavior pleases God? And what might we do to displease Him? We'll find out in our study of Mark 12:35-44.

Lopsided Spirituality

Watch "Lopsided Spirituality" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church April 8, 2018






If you've ever flipped through the pages of a Bible or listened to a sermon series or seen the bookshelf in a pastor's office, it may surprise you to hear that all of God's expectations can be condensed to a single tweet.

It only took Jesus 140 characters to tell a man who was buried in religious rules and regulations what matters most to God. We'll let His simple teaching in Mark 12:28-34 show us how we can become more of what He created us to be.

A Love Story

Watch "A Love Story " By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church March 25, 2018







 
 
 
 
You know God loves the world collectively, but how can you be sure He loves you personally? 
 
It's not by interpreting your circumstances, because they are always changing, sometimes arguing for God's love, sometimes arguing against it. No, there has to be something more reliable, more unchanging.
 
There is.

Why People Reject Jesus

Watch "Why People reject Jesus" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church March 18, 2018








Some people say "I can't" when what they really mean is "I won't."
 
They say that what is keeping them from Jesus is an unconvinced mind, but the real issue is an unwilling heart.
 
In our study of Mark 11:27--12:27, we are going to see through the intellectual objections of Christ's critics into the motives of their hearts ... and perhaps discover what lies beneath our own reluctance to go all in.

Jesus Under Pressure

Watch "Jesus Under Pressure" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church March 11, 2018







"True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure. The greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation."
 
It was Robert McKee who wrote that, and we know it's true, because we have seen it in our own lives and in the lives of others.  Pressure reveals character.


In our study of Mark 10:46--11:25, we will see what character traits Jesus displayed when He was under pressure. I think it will increase both your reverence for Him and your desire to be more like Him.

Descending Into Greatness

Watch "Descending Into Greatness" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church March 4, 2018




"We are built for significance," wrote Joe Stowell. "Our problem is not that we search for it, but that we search for it in all the wrong places."

OK, then, what's the right place?


In Mark 10:32-45, Jesus gives us a clear and unforgettable answer to that question. If you want to be a truly significant person--dare I say, a great person--don't miss church this Sunday.
