PARABLES #6 | The Rich Fool | August 7, 2022

PARABLES #6 | The Rich Fool | August 7, 2022 Brian Van Eps | Teaching Pastor Luke 12:13-21 (NIV) Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?” Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’ “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.” A guiding question: How much is enough? The problem: We are the rich fool Two Reflective Questions: 1) How big are my barns? 2) Who is benefitting from my crop? The antidote to foolishness: Generosity Reflection Questions: 1) How much is enough for you? 2) How are you like the rich fool? 3) How big are your barns? 4) Who is benefitting from your crop? 5) What have you done with what you’ve been given? 6) How can you practice ‘Uncommon Generosity’ today?

PARABLES #5 | The Lost Sons: How to Find Your Way Home | July 31, 2022

PARABLES #5 | The Lost Sons: How to Find Your Way Home | July 31, 2022 Jim Keena | Guest Speaker When you’ve lost your way, how do you find your way home? Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” Then Jesus told them this parable... Luke 15:1-3 (NIV) When you lose something valuable, you search for it, and when you find it, you rejoice! THE LOST YOUNGER SON Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.” Luke 15:11-12 (NIV) THE LOST OLDER SON “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him.” Luke 15:28 (NIV) In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:2–3 (KJV) Reflection Questions: 1) Describe a time, either past or present, in which you’ve felt lost. 2) Which of the two lost sons do you most identify with? Do you see yourself reflected in the younger or the older son? 3) Would you say that you’ve found your way home? If so, how did you find your way home, spiritually speaking? 4) In the parable of the Lost Sons, what is the most important lesson you’ve learned from it?

PARABLES #3 | The Four Soils | July 17, 2022

PARABLES #3 | The Four Soils | July 17, 2022 Brian Van Eps | Teaching Pastor A cultivating question: How is the soil of your soul today? After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means. While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.” When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” Luke 8:1-8 (NIV) The Seed: The Word of God His disciples asked him what this parable meant. He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, “‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.’ “This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.” Luke 8:9-11 (NIV) The First Soil: Deceived Donna Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. Luke 8:12 (NIV) The Second Soil: No Root Rocky Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. Luke 8:13 (NIV) The Third Seed: Choked Out Carla The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. Luke 8:14 (NIV) The Fourth Seed: Good Heart Greg But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. Luke 8:15 (NIV) A Lesson to Remember: Sow Generously and Respond Faithfully Reflection Questions: 1) How is the soil of your soul today? 2) How have you received God’s word in your life? 3) Who do you most relate with of the types of soil? Why? 4) Who do you least relate with? Why? 5) How can you sow generously this week? 6) How can you respond faithfully this week?

PARABLES #2 | Buy the Field | July 10, 2022

PARABLES | Buy the Field | July 10, 2022 Alex Erlenbush | Revival Church Lead Pastor Revival isn’t just a random sovereign move of God. Revival has always been God’s sovereign response to hunger. And Revival has always been initiated by prayer. “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” Matthew 13:44 (NIV) But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33 (ESV) When you seek first the Kingdom of God you can’t lose. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 (NIV) Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Philippians 3:12 (NIV) Reflection Questions: 1) What is God speaking to you through this text? 2) What is God asking of you through this text? 3) What is keeping you from “buying the field”? 4) Today, what is one way you can seek the Kingdom of Heaven?

PARABLES #1 | I Have Something To Tell You | July 3, 2022

PARABLES #1 | I Have Something To Tell You | July 3, 2022 Logan Holloman | NextGen Pastor When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.” Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.” “Tell me, teacher,” he said. “Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he forgave the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?” Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt forgiven.” “You have judged correctly,” Jesus said. Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Luke 7:36-50 (NIV) When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” His disciples asked him what this parable meant. He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, “‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.’” Luke 8:8b-10 (NIV) What is a parable? Parables show us who Jesus is, what’s he’s up to, and how God’s kingdom works. Why parables? Who Jesus is… What Jesus is up to… Does your life acknowledge what Jesus has done for you? Reflection Questions: 1) Are there any story tellers in your life? Friends, family? What makes them great storytellers? 2) What is your experience with the parables of Jesus? Do they seem daunting, confusing, comforting, etc? Explain. 3) Who do you relate with the most in this story; the pharisee or the woman? 4) What are the dangers of not recognizing the depth of God’s forgiveness towards us?

IT'S COMPLICATED | Marriage | June 26, 2022

IT'S COMPLICATED | Marriage | June 26, 2022, 2022 Sam Knight | Guest Speaker Ephesians 5:21-33 (ESV) Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. “Wives submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.” 1) Acknowledging a divine order 2) Recognition of spiritual leadership 3) Voluntary sacrifice “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” 1) Unmerited 2) Intensely 3) Intentionally 4) Unending 5) Selflessly 6) Manifestly 7) Sacrificially It’s even more complicated without Christ at the center of everything! Reflection Questions: 1) The New Testament has several passages that call for people to be submitted. How do these passages help qualify Paul’s intention in this passage from Ephesians 5? 2) What does the Bible teach about how authority is to be exercised? How should this affect the way you treat those over whom you have authority? 3) Why is Paul’s argument for the husband’s headship within marriage so important? Where have you seen this practiced well and when have you seen this abused? 4) What is the nature of the wife’s submission? What is it not? What examples can you think about that help you understand this command Paul gives? 5) Paul writes that husbands are to love their wives “as Christ loved the church” (5:25). How does what he says about the relationship between Christ and the church apply to husbands and wives? 6) He goes on to assert that husbands are to love their wives “as their own bodies” (5:28). Why does he add this? 7) What difference do these commands make to the way we share the gospel?

IT'S COMPLICATED #4 | Parenting | June 19, 2022

Brian Van Eps | Teaching Pastor   The truth every parent knows: Parenting is Complicated   CHRISTIAN PARENTS SHOULD CULTIVATE AN “IMPRESSIVE FAITH” Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (NIV)   THREE IDEAS FOR CULTIVATING AN “IMPRESSIVE FAITH”: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Deuteronomy 6:5 (NIV) “Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” Deuteronomy 5:16 (NIV)   ONE ORDINARY PIECE OF FURNITURE THAT CAN TRANSFORM YOUR FAMILY: THE TABLE     Reflection Questions: 1) Why do you think that parenting is complicated? 2) Do you have an “Impressive Faith”? 3) What is one tangible way that you can honor your parents? 4) How could The Table in your home help cultivate “Impressive Faith”? 5) What is your plan for this week to gather around The Table with those in your home?   For Parents: 1) How “Impressive” is your faith to your children? 2) How can you delight in your daughters and strengthen your sons this week? 3) What is your plan to use The Table with your kids this week?   Next Steps:  Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give Download our app: https://journeyweb.net/app  Notes Page: https://journeyweb.net/sermons/notes/2022.06.19.pdf

IT'S COMPLICATED #3 | Friendships | June 12, 2022

IT'S COMPLICATED | Friendships | June 12, 2022 Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor https://www.journeyweb.net/gather/   Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness…” Genesis 1:26 (NIV) The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18 (NIV)   One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 (NIV)   TIME: A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. Proverbs 17:17 (NIV)   TRANSPARENCY: Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. Proverbs 28:13 (NIV)   TRUTH: Whoever rebukes a person will in the end gain favor rather than one who has a flattering tongue. Proverbs 28:23 (NIV) Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. Proverbs 27:5-6 (NIV)   TENACITY:  As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 (NIV)   A true friend ALWAYS lets you in, NEVER lets you down.   My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:12-15 (NIV)   Reflection Questions: 1) Who is your 2 AM phone call? Do you have people that you can call at any hour and they will be there for you? 2) What has been your greatest challenge when it comes to developing deep and lasting friendships with people? Explain. 3) Do you have a regular rhythm of getting time with others that follow Jesus? Why or why not? 4) How well do you speak truth and/or receive truth from your friends? What makes this challenging for you? How could you grow in this? 5) What prevents us from being totally transparent with our friends? What does lack of transparency cost us in friendships? What is the perceived “risk” of being transparent with our lives? 6) Why do we often fear and/or shy away from conflict in relationships? How can conflict handled well be a catalyst for deeper friendships? Share an example of this in your life. 7) What is your next step in building a meaningful relationship with someone in God’s family? Is there someone you feel nudged to move towards? Is there a relationship you should rekindle that has grown distan

IT'S COMPLICATED #2 | Dating | June 5, 2022

Logan Holloman | NextGen Pastor   Romans 12:1-16 (NIV)   Our Heavenly Father cares deeply about how we engage and support one another in the context of dating.    Deal Breakers: Are they a committed follower of Jesus? What fruits of the Spirit are evident in their lives? Are they living out Romans 12? Could this person be my best friend?   Leave people better than you found them (Numbers 6:24-26; Matthew 22:34-38; 1 John 4:19-21)   Dating isn’t meant to fill a void (Matthew 11:28-29; Psalms 23)   You don’t deserve to be anyone’s second choice (Romans 5:8; Zephaniah 3:17)   Who’s supporting you? (Romans 12:9-16; Hebrews 10:24)   Does this lead to flourishing? (Genesis 1:26-28; Proverbs 13:20; Ephesians 4:2-3)   Reflection Questions: 1) Take time to reflect on the different ethical norms of dating between what the bible says and what society/culture says. What stands out to you? 2) What were you taught about dating and how has that influenced you today? Do you wish it would have been talked about differently and how so? 3) How can you commit to leaving people better than you found them, whether it be in the context of dating or not? 4) Who is someone in your circle that you can support?   Next Steps:  Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give   Notes Page: https://journeyweb.net/sermons/notes/2022.06.05.pdf

IT'S COMPLICATED #1 | You're Complicated | May 29, 2022 Brian Van Eps | Teaching Pastor   A hard question: Why are relationships complicated?   What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. James 4:1-3 (NIV)    When “I’m So Complicated” meets “I’m So Complicated” things get more Complicated     The key to helping our relationships: A humble story   “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” James 4:10 (NIV)   Reflection Questions:   1) Why do you think relationships are so complicated?   2) What are some of the most complicated relationships in your life right now?    3) Do you believe that you are complicated? Why or why not?    4) What in your story makes you complicated?    5) Why is humility the key to helping our relationships?    6) What is one practical way that you can practice humility this week in a relationship?       Next Steps:    Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give Download our app: https://journeyweb.net/app  Join our Facebook Group to stay connected throughout the week: https://facebook.com/groups/JourneyChurchBozeman Subscribe to our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/JourneyChurchBozeman Notes Page: https://journeyweb.net/sermons/notes/2022.05.29.pdf

WHISPER #4 | Pain | May 22, 2022 | Journey Church

WHISPER #4 | Pain | May 22, 2022 Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor 1) I am with you in your pain… The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all... Psalm 34:18-19 (NIV) C.S. Lewis – The Problem of Pain We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world. 2) I understand your pain… During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered… Hebrews 5:7-8 (NIV) 3) I will redeem your pain… Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV) C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither. 4) Praise me in your pain… At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.” In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing. Job 1:20-22 (NIV) Listen to my words, Lord; consider my sighing. Psalm 5:1 (NIV) Reflection Questions: 1) What have been some of the most challenging seasons of pain in your life? 2) How have seasons of pain and darkness impacted your relationship with God? Positively and/or Negatively? 3) Were you able to hear God’s whispers in those seasons? Explain. 4) How has God used pain to speak to you and shape your life? 5) What are some lies that we believe in the midst of our pain that can make the pain even more challenging? What truths from God do we need lean on in the midst of our pain? 6) How does knowing that Jesus lived a life of pain and suffering change the way we view our own suffering? 7) Read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 and the C.S. Lewis quote… Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither. Do you agree or disagree with Lewis’ observation? Explain 8) What are some tangible ways we can focus on Jesus and eternity and not just our circumstances in the midst of pain?

WHISPER #2 | People | May 1, 2022

WHISPER | People | May 1, 2022 Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor   So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. Ephesians 4:11-16 (NIV)  Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 3:16 (NIV)   Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. James 5:16 (NIV)   Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. Proverbs 27:6 (NIV)  But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort. 1 Corinthians 14:3 (NIV)   The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 1 Corinthians 2:10B-12 (NIV)   Reflection Questions: Read Ephesians 4:11-16  1) How have you seen God speak through another person into your life? How has God used you to speak into the life of another person?   2) Who are people in your life that you love and trust to be able to speak the truth in love? Who are those you can share your hidden self with? What about their life makes you trust them?   3) What does it take to develop those kind of “truth in love” relationships? Do you have a regular rhythm of meeting with people who you talk about what God is speaking to them about?    4) Why is it important to bring our hidden self (hopes, dreams, struggles, fears, sin, etc.) into the open with other people? What is the cost of failing to engage with people around our hidden self?   5) Have you had a time where someone was able to speak to an issue in your life and they did it really well? Or really poorly? What made it positive or negative?   6) Why is it important and helpful to give people permission to speak into your life (i.e. inviting feedback)?

WHISPER #1 | Promptings | April 24, 2022

WHISPER | Promptings | April 24, 2022 Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor   1 Kings 19:11-13 (NIV) The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”  1) Why does God whisper?   Oswald Chambers: “The checks of the Spirit come in the most extraordinarily gentle ways, and if you are not sensitive enough to detect His voice you will quench it, and your personal spiritual life will be impaired. His checks always come as a still small voice…”   2) What makes God’s whispers hard to hear?   2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (NIV) The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.  3) How do we respond to whispers?   Hebrews 3:15; 4:7; Psalm 95:7-8 (NIV) “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”    Reflection Questions: 1) Describe a time when you had trouble hearing someone (poor sound quality at an event, loud conversation over lunch, soft spoken co-worker in a meeting, etc.). How do you feel when you can’t hear someone well?  2) How well would you say you hear the voice of God? Why do you  think that is?   3) What things in our life can make it difficult to hear God’s voice?   4) When have you heard the voice of God most clearly in your life?     5) What sorts of lies keep us from hearing God’s voice? What have those lies been in your life?   6) What are some unique ways that God spoke to people in the Bible? What are some unique ways God has communicated with you? How did that experience affect your relationship with God?   7) How does God speak to us through engaging the Bible? How have you learned to hear God’s voice from the Bible? What does that process look like for you? &nbsp

The one who believes in me will live, even though they die..."  John 11:43-44 (NIV) When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

ENOUGH #6 | Best Trade Ever | April 10, 2022 | Journey Church | Bozeman, Montana

Alex Erlenbush | Downtown & Digital Engagement Pastor   Are you trading what you want most for what you want now? As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’” “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.” Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” Mark 10:17-23 (NIV)  Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:1-10 (NIV)  Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38 (NLT) Is anything worth more than your soul?   Reflection Questions: 1) Are you trading what you want most for what you want now?  2) What do you want most? What do you want now? 3) What does your life indicate you currently want now in life? 4) Do you more resemble the Rich Young Ruler or Zacchaeus?  5) What can you change in your life today to pursue eternity over the world?   Next Steps:

ENOUGH #5 | Are You Enough? | April 3, 2022 | Journey Church | Bozeman, Montana

ENOUGH | Are You Enough? Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor   Mark 6:30-44 (NIV) And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power. 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (NIV)   After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.” Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself. John 6:14-15 (NIV)   Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves…  Mark 6:41A (NIV)  While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take it; this is my body.” Mark 14:22 (NIV)   Reflection Questions: 1) Have you ever been in a situation where you wondered if you had what it takes? Where you wondered if you were enough? Share that experience. How did you respond? 2) Have you ever sensed God leading you in a direction where you questioned if you were enough? How did you respond to that circumstance? 3) Why can it be easier to see the horizontal view (life and circumstances and challenges) and not the vertical view (an opportunity for Jesus to grow our faith)? 4) Jesus came to start a revolution but not a military or political revolution. What are the characteristics of Jesus’ revolution? 5) Jesus responded to the needs of the people with bread. The bread of the Word (he began to teach) AND physical bread. What does this example mean for us? Are peoples’ “felt needs” sometimes different from what they really need? How can you determine what are the real needs of the people to whom you shepherd?  6) How have you observed Jesus stretching you in your faith recently? How did you respond or how will you respond?  7) Have you ever known of a situation where the resources and manpower were clearly inadequate to complete the ministry task that God had unquestionably assigned? What happened?   Next Steps:   • Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard  • Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give

ENOUGH | Lord of the Sabbath | March 27, 2022 Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor   Mark 2:23-3:6 (NIV) … Mark 3:5A (NIV) Mark 3:6 (NIV) John 14:15 (NIV)  John 13:34-35 (NIV) Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)   Reflection Questions: 1) Do you have more of a tendency to find faults in other people or to find ways to commend and encourage them?  2) Is there any situation where it is our right and our duty to find fault in others?  3) What rules do you find yourself using to judge the spirituality of yourself and others? 4) What is God’s heart for us in providing a Sabbath? If Sabbath means to “cease”, where are places in your life that you need to “cease” striving and rest in God? 5) With regard to God’s commandments, why is it helpful to ask how God wants to protect and provide for us and others through this command?  6) What kinds of people make you angry? How do you relate to people who are caught up in a cycle of self-destructive sin? How do you relate to people who claim to be righteous but who flout the ways of God? 7) How does answering the question, “What does love require of me?” help us with making moral, ethical, relational, and spiritual decisions? Is this more or less demanding than simply keeping commandments? 8) Give some examples of how applying the question, “What does love require of me?” change the way you live and make decisions.   Next Steps:   • Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard  • Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give  • Download our app: https://journeyweb.net/app   • Join our Facebook Group to stay connected throughout the week: https://facebook.com/groups/JourneyChurchBozeman  • Get your children connected to our children's ministry, Base Camp: https://journeyweb.net/children  • Our Student Ministry is for High School and Middle School students: http

ENOUGH #3 | HOW HEALTHY IS YOUR SOUL? |  MARCH 20, 2022 Brian Van Eps | Teaching Pastor   MARK 2:13-17 (NIV) Once again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to him, and he began to teach them. As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him. While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” HOW HEALTHY IS YOUR SOUL? A HEALTHY SOUL TEST: How much love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are evident in your life? When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” v. 16 BEING GOOD ISN'T ENOUGH THE ENEMY OF JESUS MEETING YOUR NEEDS: PRIDE On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” v. 17 WHEN WE THINK THAT WE ARE ENOUGH, WE DON’T LEAVE ROOM FOR JESUS TO BE ENOUGH. REFLECTION QUESTIONS: 1) How healthy is your soul…really? 2) How much love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control are evident in your life? 3) How would other people who know you answer that question? 4) Why is pride the enemy of Jesus meeting our need? 5) Respond to this statement: When we think we are enough, we don’t leave room for Jesus to be enough. 6) How specifically do you need Jesus to be enough for your sick soul right now?   NEXT STEPS:   • Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard  • Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give  • Download our app: https://journeyweb.net/app   • Join our Fa

How do you need to see Jesus heal you of areas of sin in your life? Take time to pray over these with Jesus and others. 4) Why can it be difficult to see spiritual needs in others when the circumstances of their life appear to be going really well? 5) The four friends had faith that Jesus could observe – it took action. How can we observe faith in others? How can people observe your faith? 6) Who in your sphere of influence has spiritual needs? Who needs the healing of forgiveness found in Jesus?

STRONG #7 | The Race Marked For Us | February 27, 2022 | Journey Church | Bozeman, Montana

STRONG | The Race Marked For Us | February 27, 2022 Logan Holloman | NextGen Pastor    2 Timothy 4:1-22(NIV) Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. 1 Timothy 4:16 (NIV) I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:23-24 (NIV) I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 1 Corinthians 9:23-25 (NIV)  Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12:1-3 (NIV)  What are the stories people share about you?  Practice what you preach “Running the race” How do we run the race marked out for us?  • Run your race  • Champion others along the way  • Keep the faith, no matter the cost   Reflection Questions: 1) Who is a Paul in your life? Timothy? 2) How confident are you in “the race marked out for you”?  3) Hebrews 12 encourages us to “throw off everything that hinders and sin that entangles”, what might that be in your life? Perhaps pray for the Holy Spirit to reveal potential areas. 4) How can your Journey community help you fight the good fight, finish the race, and keep the faith?   Next Steps:   • Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard  • Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give  • Download our app:

STRONG #5 | Noble Lives and Terrible Times | February 13, 2022 | Journey Church | Bozeman, Montana

Brian Van Eps | Teaching Pastor WE ARE IN TERRIBLE TIMES "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone." 2 Timothy 3:1-9 (NIV)   WHAT SHOULD WE DO IN TERRIBLE TIMES?   FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT: LIVE NOBLE LIVES IN TERRIBLE TIMES "You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived." 2 Timothy 3:10-13 (NIV) REFLECTION QUESTIONS: 1) What is your reaction to the statement: We live in terrible times? 2) Where do you see terrible times in the world right now? 3) Are you surrounding yourself with noble or terrible purposes/people? 4) What areas of your life are terrible right now and need to change? 5) What would living a noble life look like for you? 6) What practical steps do you need to take to begin living a more noble life?   Next Steps:   • Complete the Connect Card to receive more information, have us pray for you, or to ask us any question: http://journeyweb.net/connectcard  • Want to worship through giving and support the ministry of Journey Church: https://journeyweb.net/give  • Download our app: https://churchcenter.com/install  • Join our Facebook Group to stay connected throughout the week: https://facebook.com/groups/JourneyChurchBozeman  • Get your children connected to our children's
