Touchy Subjects - Reno Campus

Whether the issue of the day on Social Media, in the coffee shops or on cable news is about sexuality, political squabbles or some argument about faith and science, we often line up for a battle. What often happens is that we just end up farther apart and angrier than ever. Jesus taught there is a better way. It is possible to hold fast to God’s truth and still love others with humility. It is possible to be people of integrity and serve those who disagree with us. In this series, we will address some of the “touchy subjects” that often divide and seek to help us take a different perspective on how we deal with them and love those who agree and disagree with us.

Reflect - Reno Campus

From the tree in the garden to the guy or girl with the cute smile to cutting corners for the business deal to the pull of the pornography and the desire for more, we all face temptation. But why is it so difficult to just walk away-to just say no? We will take a close look at the temptations Jesus faced in the desert in order to identify some of the driving forces behind the temptations we face every day. Once we realize what is behind temptation, and what is going on when we’re tempted, we may be able to find the confidence to respond as Jesus did and learn to say no.

Roots - Reno Campus

False teachers were trying to chip away at the deity and authority of Christ, seeking to convince the church at Colossae that Christ wasn’t sufficient for their lives-they needed more. Paul wrote the book of Colossians, giving us concentrated teaching on the theology of “Christ.” Jesus is the answer to everything. He is supreme. He is sufficient. He is the one who has saved us from sin and changed us into new, living creatures. We have a new life because of Him. We need these truths today to give us a clear view of who Jesus is that can lead us to heartfelt obedience to Christ, greater confidence in Christ and larger influence in our community and ultimately the world for His glory.

What can we learn from how he responds to the setbacks that come his way?
