A Simple Guide to Walking on Water

By Pastor Bobby Schuller

Do you trust God? I mean, do you really trust God? If you’re like me, learning to trust and rely on God in a deep way is a constant process. This July, I invite you to join us as we explore what it looks like to truly walk in faith with our new series, “A Simple Guide to Walking on Water.”

Together, we will learn how to trust God in a deeper and more assured way as we step out in faith into the world around us. I hope you’ll join!

Here are some highlights of what we’ll be covering each week:

July 3: Trust not Clarity
(Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-12, 17-19)

God doesn’t give us clarity. He gives us faith (trust). The weirdest thing about walking by faith is we don’t know where we are walking.

July 10: God is for You
(Luke 13:10-17)

Religious people may be against us, but God is for us. John 10:10b says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

July 17: Risk
(Matthew 14:25-32)

We can do everything God has called us to do. We should dream to do bigger things so that God gets the glory. We, the disciples, are supposed to do everything the rabbi does, and he has called us because he believes we are good enough.

July 24: Endurance
(James 1:2-4, Philippians 1:6)

Faith is about patience. Don’t quit because God will finish what he’s started in us. This sermon will focus on the story of Hagar, and how Abraham and Sarah tried to rush the process with God.

July 31: Words of Faith
(James 2-4, 9-12)

If we want succeed in life, we must succeed first in our words. Our world has made words cheap, so the less we speak the more people will listen to us. The more we listen, the more people will be willing to take our advice.

August 7: Vulnerability
(2 Corinthians 12:7b-10)

Being vulnerable is an act of faith that makes God strong in our weakness.

August 14: From Pride to Humility
Pastor Chad will preach the seventh message in this series about faith, trust, pride, and humility.

Chapter 10: Don’t Worry-It Will Be Okay

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Don’t Worry-It Will Be Okay” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday March 5, 2017.

It’s easy to become swept up in the anxieties of our every day, but Bobby reminds us this week to slow down, let our anxieties go, and give them to God. Training your eyes to see what’s good, and not dwelling on the negative things that may happen can be tricky. But simply by walking in the strength of faith, anything is possible. Life is too beautiful to worry about the little things. Let go, trust, and live in the easy rhythms of grace. That is a good life.

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.
