Chapter 8: Be the Real You, You Don’t Have to Prove Anything

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Be the Real You, You Don’t Have to Prove Anything” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday February 19, 2017.

This week Bobby reassures us that, whatever we do, when we do something out of love rather than fear, it will be blessed by God. Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and open might be difficult, but by doing so out of love, nothing but joy will result from such actions. You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not simply because you’re craving acceptance. The most honest acceptance stems from being your true, whole self. You are loved!

Chapter 7: Of Course You’re Angry, but Let it Go.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Of Course You’re Angry, but Let it Go” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday February 12, 2017.

In this message, Bobby takes a moment to address an emotion that has the immediate ability to completely consume us: anger. Like pain, anger means that something is wrong. But how do we best approach this emotion?

It is not anger that brings sin upon us. Rather, it is the words we say while we are trapped in this negative mindset; we cannot get them back once said aloud. Because of the impact of our words, we are encouraged to use our words more constructively. Speak the truth, and speak it kindly.

Chapter 6: Dealing with Criticism and Competition

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Dealing with Criticism and Competition” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday February 5, 2017.

In this message, Bobby harkens upon the Golden Rule of “love thy neighbor” to introduce a new idea: love your critics, love your competitors. By choosing to be merciful, you are proving that you entrust your life in Jesus. Very often, critics can be the best thing in your life, because they keep you grounded. Life is too good to hold a grudge, so love your enemies.

Chapter 2: Do less. Be more. Connect with others.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How to be Alive” with his message “Do less. Be more. Connect with others” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday January 8, 2017.

In this message, Bobby fixates on our ability to inherit heaven on earth. As we reflect on our sins, mistakes, and regrets, it becomes clear that these negative elements have ultimately been rooted in our lack of connecting with others, or a fear of not belonging. Bobby stresses the spectacular importance of this one truth: the greatest human need is to connect deeply with others. You are enough; you don’t need to earn anything. You deserve to make love a priority.

The Gift of Winter

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series entitled “Hope in Your Winter” on the forth Sunday of Advent with the message “The Gift of Winter” at Shepherd’s Grove on December 18, 2016.

During the holiday season, it is easy to get carried away with stress. Society is incredibly hurried, and Christians in particular harbor a lot of guilt that stems from always trying to set things right. Bobby reminds us that we do not have the all-encompassing power to change the world. God will gently call you to people and places according to His timing. You do not have to prove anything to anybody, because you are enough, and God is proud of you. Take the time you’re given off from work this holiday season and rest, be with the people you love, and just take this time to enjoy your life–you deserve it.

Receive God’s Gift for You

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series entitled “Hope in Your Winter” on the third Sunday of Advent with the message “Receive God’s Gift for You” at Shepherd’s Grove on December 11, 2016.

In this series, Bobby stresses the importance of facing our fears. Especially for those of us who worry on a regular basis, this is our time to open our eyes and heart to receive good things; stop always looking for the bad. Bobby alludes to multiple stories such as Aladdin, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars to accentuate the theme of the main character going through challenging obstacles to come out victorious. He mentions these spectacular journeys to emphasize that doing things that scare you train fear out of your life. You will beat your monster, and your monster will make you better.

Anything is Possible in the Kingdom of God

Pastor Bobby Schuller begins his series entitled “Hope in Your Winter” on the first Sunday of Advent with the message “Anything is Possible in the Kingdom of God” at Shepherd’s Grove on November 27, 2016.

In this series, Bobby strays away from a dark standpoint on the Christmas season and focuses on the unlimited possibilities that are offered to us during this time. He reminds us that, while we may be faced with suffering, we must respond to seemingly impossible situations with faith. Winter is the season for starting over, and good things are always coming.
