"Stop Social Distancing"In this kick-off to a new series, we'll look at 5 Biblical Keys to putting the last 18 months behind us.The titles are a little cheeky... Stopping social distancing has nothing to do with keeping 6 feet apart or other wise protocols. There's another kind of social distancing going on that's been deeply destructive. We've end…
 
At NAC's outdoor service in the amphitheater at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, ON we close out our "Cabin Fever" series with the story of the friends and disciples of Jesus who had just witnessed their mentor and teacher... their hope... be murdered and laid in a dark, locked, little room called a "tomb". Now they found themselves in a locked little room…
 
Talk about "Cabin Fever"40 days without food. Alone in the desert. Vulnerable. Tempted by Satan.What can we learn about overcoming temptation from our most perfect role model? Do you secretly think that Jesus overcoming temptation isn't really much of a big deal, because He got to play the "God card"? Join us for some really practical wisdom on an …
 
Today’s service was presented in a different kind of format. As Jonathan delves into the “Cabin Fever” that the prophet Elijah experienced, he separates it into 3 sections followed by an opportunity to respond in song (which for copyright reasons we won’t be including in this podcast, but feel free to seek out these songs)Something is being formed …

Talk about "Cabin Fever"In fact, talk about hitting "rock bottom". But there are some Jonah's in our church here at NAC who have encountered the grace and saving work of God as they cried out to him from the depths...From rock bottom.Along with this message that Jonathan is excited to share, today is chock-full of good stuff including...- A very sp…

Jesus ends this most famous sermon with his application: A story where you can easily place yourself in the role of either the wise or the foolish person. On the surface at least, so much is similar about these two people. The life-altering difference was revealed only when the storm came. Everyone will face storms. The whole world faced the storm …
 
One of the last sentences from Jesus in this most famous sermon is that MANY on that final day of judgment will come to Him having done ministry and done all the "right Christian" works and said the "right Christian" things and Jesus will say "Away from me. I never knew you."Ouch!Is there a more sobering passage in Scripture? It's one thing to be d…
 
By their authentic spiritual "fruit" you will know them... not by the T-shirts they wear, the Billboards they make, the bumperstickers they put on their car. In other words, you can't tell a true follower of Christ by their external trappings. You'll need time and proximity to really discern authenticity and even then Jesus warns of being deceived …
 
Now Jesus begins His application of His sermon on the Mount and He uses the analogy of how the true follower needs to enter through the narrow gate, not the wide one. Often this has been interpreted as a whose "saved" and whose "unsaved" verse. "Heaven" vs. "Hell"... "In" the kingdom and "outside" the Kingdom. In context of what has come before it …
 
It's a statement that's actually been affirmed by almost every religion and was first spoken by Jesus over 2000 years ago. It's known as the "golden rule" but it seems it's been watered down to be understood as the "Do No Harm" rule... in other words, "DON'T treat others how you WOULDN'T want to be treated". But this is a rule worded in the Positiv…
 
So far in the sermon on the mount Jesus has been describing this "Kingdom life"... what a true Spirit-filled, God-follower can look like. He's saying: Being merciful IS POSSIBLE... loving your enemy IS POSSIBLE... not worrying IS POSSIBLE, so if that life appeals to you... if this qualities stir something up in you and make you desirous of them, th…
 
According to pollster-Research group Barna, the #1 reason non-Christians or ex-Christians are reticent to darken the doors of a church is because of a reputation Christians have garnered for being "Judgmental".Ironically, this is the very thing Jesus railed against. He saw it in the religious leaders of the day and it made him rightfully and righte…
 
Guest Rachel West knows of which she speaks.She's tackling a topic that is near and dear to her heart. A temptation that she has had to counter with better habits over the years. Could worry and anxiety (yes, there is a difference) be at epidemic proportions these days? I think that's a resounding yes. When Jesus calls us to not worry about our liv…
 
In this most famous message of Jesus... the sermon on the mount... He asks us to assess what we TRULY treasure. What do we most value? Is anything more important than God in your life? We often take this to be a passage strictly about money (and money or "mammon" is certainly a big part of it) but what if your treasure was even a good thing... like…
 
Apart from the new diet trend of "intermittent fasting", the concept of fasting for spiritual purposes isn't really something that fits our 21st century "Uber Eats" culture. And yet Jesus says "WHEN you fast..." Not "IF you fast..."It seems he expected this to be a normative part of the Christ followers life.We talked a few weeks ago about the wron…
 
This might be the hardest year in most of our lives. Hope seems diminished. We've come to the end of ourselves in many ways.Does this story of a resurrected Jesus make any real difference in our lives? Is it more than just a "feel-good" story... a "Phoenix rising" type metaphor?Find out how the resurrection of Jesus makes a tangible difference for …
 
The most famous prayer ever... the prayer that Jesus taught his followers to pray. So much is packed into this brevity of words. Come to the "Lord's prayer" today with fresh eyes and fresh ears and hear how Elizabeth - someone who truly practices the discipline of prayer - is living this out herselfElizabeth Stanley による
 
Today is a unique service of not just TALKING ABOUT prayer but actually DOING it! You can use and re-use this service video for your own prayer practices - a toolkit of some creative prayer ideas that may give you some new intimacy with Jesus. Pray along.Jonathan K. Gonyou による
 
Christians have to be especially careful that their acts of worship and obedience to God don't become "spiritual theatre" for the applause and approval of other people. Jesus call these folks "hypocrites". Instead of looking for the "applause of heaven" many want the affirmaiton of men and Jesus says, "If that's what you're looking for, that's all …
 
In our continuing series on the greatest sermon ever preached, Jesus now calls us to perhaps the hardest characteristic of a disciple... not just to love people who love us (that's easy) but to love people who are mean, antagonistic, working against us... in short, our enemies. As relevant in 2021 as it ever was…
 
What if Jesus was serious about being a person of truth? Once again, the so-called most religous people of the day - the Pharisees - had found a loophole to get out of their oaths and promises. Jesus says "How about instead of swearing on a Bible or your Mother's Grave or any other performative trick, just be a person whose word is rock solid".…
 
Continuing with our series on the sermon on the mount: "What if Jesus Was Serious?" and Jesus has already addressed all kinds of cultural landmines and controversial issues but this one hits close to home, perhaps because sexuality is so intrinsic to our humanity. Jesus calls out the pious who thought their sexual ethic begins and ends with obeying…
 
Have you ever seen a more angry culture? Even a time where CHRISTIANS seem more identified as angry people? Me neither.The Pharisees were deeply concerned about the external... good behavior. For instance... "Do Not Murder!"Easy-peasy, right? Well, Jesus comes along and says "Hey, could we have a conversation about your anger? You think your hiding…
 
In our continuing series on the sermon on the mount, "What if Jesus was serious?", one could make the argument that this verse (Matt. 5:17) may be the most stupendous claims of Jesus. He didn't come to abolish the law and the prophets but to FULFILL them. Understanding this verse may unlock the understanding of the entire sermon on the mount if not…
 
Jesus makes an unusual statement, calling his followers "salt and light". What does that mean?Salt adds flavour, it preserves and it heals. The light exposes and illuminates.Listen to how these analogies are a call to action for the believer to be "good news" in the world today with our very own Peter Elford…
 
The upside-down, counter-cultural, counter-intuitive wisdom of Jesus continues in this Sermon on the Mount series. Each beatitude seems to build on the other... each one a challenge to our notion of who is truly "lucky" or "blessed"So what if Jesus WAS serious?Jonathan K. Gonyou による
 
This might be the ideal season to "steap" in the words of Jesus.This Sermon on the Mount is more than the "random wisdom" or "greatest hits" of Jesus. It's more than a glorified "Ted Talk". This is the manifesto of sorts. The glorious essence of his message of what it means to be a follower. More than a message to hear or read or admire, it's a mes…
 
COVID is bringing out lots of fear these days - sometimes in the form of anger.There seems to be an underlying fear of the answer to that existential question; "What happens after I die?" "Have I been good enough?" "Am I in good standing with God". Even many Christians go to bed wondering "If I should die before I wake, WILL the Lord, my soul to ta…
 
Has there ever been a time where we are more concerned with the opinions people have of us? I wonder if social media has hurt or helped that? Joseph's response to a vision could've been to do the culturally easier thing but instead, he said "yes" to God and the world was forever changed. Being obsessed with what GOD thinks of you is the quickest wa…
 
What are you afraid of? There are all kinds of legit reasons to feel fear in 2020 ... not the least of which is a global pandemic! Fears attack the most precious parts of our being and keep us from living the life meant for us. It's repeated throughout the Christmas story and God wants to help YOU overcome your darkest fears as we learn to ... FEAR…
 
This "One-Anothering" command is not part of a smorgasbord we can ignore, even if the culture has increasingly moved away from it... even if there are all kinds of reasons it makes us uncomfortable... even if there is a global pandemic! So how do we obey Jesus by keeping the spirit of this command? How do we get creative and "one-another" each othe…
 
NAC's own David Klauke, a registered psychotherapist shares from Galatians 6:2 wherein we are told to carry or "bear" each other's burdens. David quotes another therapist, Larry Crabb who says "If the church was doing it's job, we wouldn't need therapists". It will take a loving community willing to CARE, LOOK, ASK and just DO IT…
 
Most of the 59 New Testament "one-anothering" verses are commands to DO something; LOVE one another, ENCOURAGE one another, ACCEPT one another etc. But there are 5 or 6 verses that are explicitly "do NOT" verses.These are so important (do NOT judge one another, do NOT lie to one another, do NOT slander one another) because they are church KILLERS a…
 
"Pray for one another". Seems obvious, right? But we seem hampered by misconceptions and baggage and hang-ups. Every believer can do this! YOU can do this. Discover some practical and creative ways to include praying for each other as a regular and integral part of our community life.Kris Stawski による
 
As part of our "One Another" series, Steve Briggs unpacks through personal stories and even a "Joey and Ross" illustration, how our call as Christians is a lot more than just to "tolerate" other people. And guess what... you don't have to wait until you FEEL like accepting someone you don't like or agree with... you can just CHOOSE to do it because…
 
The second most repeated "One Another" verse is to "Greet each other with a holy kiss" (??)Now before you are grateful for Covid masks because "you ain't kissin' nobody, no-how at church", let's look at how this one another applies to us in 2020 and maybe even gives us insight into our cultural epidemic of disconnectedness.(oh... and Seinfeld too)…
 
In our "One anothering" series we see Jesus himself set the example, serving his disciples in a humbling and even menial way. Than lays it out clearly by saying "I'm setting the example for you. I want you to serve others the way I've modeled it for you here". And that all sounds well and good but the real test of a servant is when someone actually…
 
Truly "One-anothering" in love means a lot more than "being nice" or keeping the peace at all costs. Real love has to speak truth sometimes. Real love needs to instruct or teach or admonish. It isn't easy, but if it's done in the right spirit, with the right motive, using the right method, you will truly be "one-anothering" each other.…
 
People are made for relationships.It’s the byproduct of being created in the image of a Triune God who is in relationship.59 times in the New Testament we are given specific, applicable instruction on how to “one-another” each other… “Love one another… serve one another… honor one another…”When you become a follower of Jesus, God puts you as one of…
 
The Mark of the Beast? Revelation? The Apocolypse? The very own prophetic words of Jesus? A certain book series I wish would get "left behind" and... "Please don't take my Antichrist from me"The likely unpopular conclusion to our two part eschatology teaching.Jonathan K. Gonyou による
