In this sermon based on a series by Mars Hill Church in Seattle Darryl shares the story of Ruth. In the first chapter of Ruth the Noami learns what it means to truth God even when you don't understand what He is doing.
Today is the fourth message in the series Recovery Road (a series by NorthPoint Church). Today Darryl talks about how when you are on the road to the recovery sometimes you have to take care of your debt. The borrower is slave to the lender and sometimes when you are a borrower you don't have the freedom you need in order to recover. In this lesson Darryl gives the inspiration needed to get out of debt.
In this 3rd installment of the series Recovery Road Darryl discusses how we can begin on our road to recovery. None of us like to depend on anyone else to handle our problems, but recovery begins by making a declaration of dependence. (This series is based on a sermon series by NorthPoint Church)
In this sermon Jay Estes continues the series that Darryl introduced - "Recovery Road". Recovery begins by taking a hard, fearless look in the mirror. Each of us have to be honest with ourselves if we want to be able to move forward.
(Please excuse the poor sound quality of this recording) In this second message in the series "Wrecked" Darryl shares more about the idea that when we have contact with Jesus He will change us forever. This week Darryl uses the story of Zaccheaus to point out that when Jesus wrecks us that means there will be repentance for our lives.
In this message Darryl pauses to thank his church for their work this year. Thanksgiving is a time to stop and remember what we have been given. The church in Ann Arbor has been a blessing to all who meet her - especially those who are a part of her.
In this second lesson of the series Habits of Happiness (based on a series by Saddleback Church) Darryl discusses the connection between being humble and being happy. God is on the side of the humble and when we are humble there is less conflict in our lives - with less conflict there is often more happiness.
In this lesson Darryl borrows material from the North Point Church. This lesson is about learning to put personal boundaries in place in order to avoid regret in the area of our friendships. Take a listen and then take action.
In this lesson Darryl borrows from North Point Church in Georgia to present a message about avoiding regret in our lives. This message is the first in a series of six that will explore the idea of giving boundaries to ourselves so that we will avoid driving our lives off the cliff. When we are driving guardrails are meant to protect us from driving into areas that could be harmful. In our lives Guardrails are meant to be a personal decision that becomes a matter of conscience for us. Guardrails are boundaries meant to keep us from doing things that we might not recover from. Darryl encourages us to develop our own Guardrails in our lives so that we might be protected from harm.
Guest speaker Steve Pylkas continues the theme of purity by opening up the gospel of Matthew and sharing some perspective from one of the greatest teachings of Jesus.
