Lord, Break Me (Dangerous Prayers #2)

If you’ve ever been lost, whether while hiking or driving, you know that sometimes in order to go forward, you have to first go back.

In our spiritual lives, sometimes in order to go forward in our faith, we need to go back in a sense, to allow God to break us, to remove some things in our lives, such as selfishness or sinful patterns, so that He can mold and shape us into who He sees us to be.

In this second part of our “Dangerous Prayers” series, Pastor Erin Bird shares through Jeremiah 18:1-6 as well as through his own life story, how painful the breaking process can be, but also how necessary it can be. If you are the type of person who wants to follow Jesus closely, listen in to “Lord, Break Me.”

The New Covenant (His Story #24)

In America, we are addicted to new:

  • New movies
  • New music
  • New clothes
  • New cars
  • New homes
  • New relationships

We like new. But oftentimes, we make the mistake of believing that “new” makes us better.

God wants us to experience “new” life, but rather than give us external things like clothes or cars, He wants to give us a new heart. If you want a new heart and to experience the life God has for you, listen in.

Trust Issues (Acorn Theology #2)

In Week 1 of “Acorn Theology”, Erin taught from Psalm 1:1-4. Here in Week 2, he teaches from Jeremiah 17:5-8. Two different passages, written by two different authors, most likely at two different periods in history. And yet, they have very similar imagery and truth.

Rather than skip over Jeremiah 17 because “I’ve already heard this in Psalm 1,” perhaps we should lean in with rapt attention because God is trying to say something to us. And what he wants to say to you through Jeremiah’s words has the potential to give you a peace and confidence you didn’t think possible.

So lean in. Listen to this message. And get ready to have your prayer life impacted as you connect with God and discover what it means to trust Him.
