Building a Prevailing Church, Part 3: Why Teaching Matters To Growth
by John Ortberg
You have experienced this to be true -- I know you have. Someone surprised you with an act of mercy and melted your heart. Do you remember it?

Building Bigger Hearts, Part 1: Energy Management
by Bill Hybels
'We are fearfully and wonderfully made,' Psalm 139:14 tells us. We are distinct from each other. We are all wired up a little differently from one another, and all of us have our own relational capacity, and it varies widely from person to person. All of us have a different preference for how many relationships ..
Building Bigger Hearts, Part 2: Relationship Management
You know, in this series, the last two weeks, I have been asking the question, what is causing so many of our hearts to be shrinking these days?

Building Bigger Hearts, Part 3: Soul Management
And sometimes we need to just pause, and we need to reflect on how incredible it is that Jesus Christ offers forgiveness and cleansing and reconciliation to tight-fisted people like Zacchaeus, to rebellious people like Ronnie Bronski, to hard-hearted people like me, and to people like you, too. Once ..

Do You Have What It Takes to Grow? Part 4: Developing Your Moral Inventory
The Bible puts it this way in James 5:16, "Confess your wrongdoings to each other; pray for one another and you'll be healed." Now I know that some of you feel a slight hesitation in your spirit when you're told that you probably ought to tell somebody about who you are, really, on the inside. Some ..
Do You Have What It Takes to Grow? Part 5: Telling Somebody
The scriptures tell us that Jesus didn't effect an automatic and dramatic healing. Instead, He approached the crippled man and He asked him what many, I'm sure, thought was a strange question. He looked right in the eyes of the crippled man and He said, "Do you want to be healed? Do you want to part ..
Do You Have What It Takes to Grow? Part 6: Asking God To Remove Our Shortcomings
And I can tell you from personal experience, making amends runs contrary to the very nature that we have. Doesn't it? It's a scary thought, isn't it?
