    Finding common ground

    Have you ever gotten caught in a dispute between two friends? It’s tough to be in the middle, and hard to avoid the pressure to take a side. But as we’ll see today on Discover the Word, when the apostle Paul was stuck in the middle of a situation like that, he focused on common […]

    A letter from Paul

    Don’t you love getting mail from a friend? When you see a loved one’s name on the return address, or in your e-mail inbox, you’re filled with joy and anticipation. And today on Discover the Word, we’ll hear about a personal letter the apostle Paul wrote to Philemon—from one friend to another. But it was […]

    We are not meant to go it alone

    The wisdom of Ecclesiastes tells us that “a cord of three strands is not easily broken,” and that “two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” We were never meant to live life without others. And today on Discover the Word, we’ll see that not even the apostle Paul could go […]

    The message of Philemon

    Odds are your Bible never just flips open to the book of Philemon. It’s only one chapter and at most a page long. But as we’ll see today on Discover the Word, it’s a little book that packs a big message. Join us on Discover the Word to learn more about the compelling story behind […]

    Overcoming the barriers to knowing Jesus

    We all know someone who we would really like to see come to Christ. Today on Discover the Word, we address the three most common barriers that people erect against accepting Jesus. Whether it’s emotional, intellectual, or volitional, people have their reasons. Overcoming barriers that keep us from “Carrying Our Friends to Christ.” Join the group […]

    There’s only one path to God, but there are many paths to Jesus

    “There’s only one path to God, and that’s Jesus. But there are many paths to Jesus.” Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss how “Carrying Our Friends to Christ” involves coming alongside them in ways that are meaningful to them. And as we’ll see in the story of a paralyzed man in Mark chapter […]

    Bringing others to Christ is a team effort

    Have you ever felt that a loved one’s faith in Christ was all up to you? And then felt guilty when you grew weary of praying about it day after day? Today on Discover the Word, we begin a new series in Mark chapter 2. Just as the paralyzed man had to be physically carried […]

    “What’s love got to do with it?”

    What’s love got to do with it? Well, according to the Bible, everything, but only if it’s real. Counterfeit love will never do.  Today on Discover the Word, the team, and guest Adele Calhoun, explores 1 Corinthians 13 and God’s big invitation for us to love as Jesus loved. An enlightening conversation in their series on […]

    Sharing the ministry of Jesus with others

    Is God more interested in what He’s doing through you or what He’s doing in you? Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss the symbiotic relationship between Jesus’s personal ministry to us and our willingness to share the fruits of that work with others, even when our hearts aren’t always in it!

    Being ready when Jesus shows up

    Everyone has tasks they don’t like. And there’s usually not much to marvel at in the mundane. Or is there? Today on Discover the Word, we examine the idea that even in boring, everyday activities, like Peter cleaning his fishing nets, Jesus shows up. We may not know when or how but we need to be ready! Learn how […]

    A fresh revelation

    What, or who, is in your boat? Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss how Jesus commandeered Peter’s fishing boat to deliver a message to people hungry to hear a word from God. Could God use something in your everyday life to bring a fresh revelation of His love? Because when Jesus is on board, […]

    God longs to hear from us

    We all want to hear from God, especially when we feel like we need answers! But is it possible that God wants, make that longs, to hear from us? Today on Discover the Word, we start our study in Luke chapter five, a passage that reveals people’s deep hunger to hear a word from God. And Jesus, […]
