4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Changing seems easy, but in reality, it's easier said than done.

We all have goals in terms of how we want to grow and improve, but there’s often a seemingly infinite gap between our intentions and our actions. In this four-part series, Pastor Levi Lusko provides Biblical advice and practical tools to help us create the right changes in our lives and to ensure our progress sticks.

God’s Calendar

2/2 Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

2/9 Psalm 90:12 Teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should.

2/16 Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone

2/23 Exodus 12:2

“This month shall be for you the head of months, the first of the months of the year”

Under God

What dominates the headlines doesn't have to dominate our hearts. There’s only one name that can bring the world together, and you won’t find it on a ballot. Are you ready to discover the hope and freedom we’ve been given Under God?

Instead of focusing on politics, this series will ask what it really means for Christians around the world to be under God. Below you'll find message resources and art for this series.
