Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Gratitude and Joy” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday March 19, 2017.

 

In this message, Bobby reminds us that a grateful heart is a magnet for miracles. By viewing each hurdle and obstacle as a blessing, you will be able to look at your life in an entirely new light. Rather than looking upon your past with regret, learn to accept each decision as a part of what makes you strengthened in the present. Because the more grateful you are, the better the future you're preparing for yourself.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Sufficiency and Generosity” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday March 12, 2017.

This week, Bobby encourages us to be generous. Generosity practiced in faith can cause anyone to feel wealthy. Do you need an opportunity in life? Transcend your problems and help others succeed. When following God, wealth is not simply defined by monetary gains. Rather it can be measured by wisdom, knowledge, character, and benevolence. Give something away to someone in need, so that you can hear the Lord say to you, "come follow me."

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.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Let Your Yes Be Yes, and Your No, No” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday February 26, 2017.

 

In this message, Bobby accentuates the importance of honesty and vulnerability by explaining the power of the words "yes" and "no". As human beings, it is not realistic for us to say yes to everything. By saying yes when you mean no, and no when you mean yes, you are lying to yourself and those around you. The reason we lie is because we're not at peace with the truth. Even if it hurts people, in the long run, the truth is always the best choice. For you, and for God.

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!

Feb 13, 2017

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. 

 

 

 

Feb 6, 2017

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. 

 

Jan 30, 2017

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message "Servant Leadership” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday January 29, 2017.

In this message, Bobby approaches the importance of servant leadership through Jesus' actions. Jesus was the greatest servant, greatest leader, and his goal was to bless people. With this, Bobby reminds us that each little action can create an enormous impact. If you focus on the deep, God will focus on the wide; if you focus on the individual, God will focus on the masses. God wants us to have this beneficial influence on others, so we are called to find a need and fill it.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message "The Golden Rule” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday January 22, 2017.

In this message, Bobby explains how The Silver Rule becomes The Golden Rule, and the importance of each. Through this explanation, we are reminded to not only love and care for others, but also to love and care for ourselves. Love is what you do; your love is Christian, and that means it's proactive, not reactive. Bobby also fixates on the significance of empathy, because a good person is a loving person, and we are all worthy of love, no matter our faults. 

 

 

Jan 17, 2017

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series "The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive" with the message "Doing Big Things with Big Faith" at Shepherd's Grove on Sunday January 15, 2017.

 

With this message, Bobby reminds us that we are offered the opportunity to get to heaven by faith. No one wants you to go to heaven more than God. Since God is rooting for you, and always looks after you, you should be confident enough in God's plan for your future without fearing the present. Faith is key; you can have faith in God because he is not holding anything over your head. Pray with faith, not with sympathy, because faith is what pleases God.

 

 

 

Jan 9, 2017

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series "The Narrow Road: How to be Alive" with his message "You Get a Fresh Start" 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.

Pastor Bobby Schuller begins his new series for the new year entitled "The Narrow Road: How to be Alive" with the message "The World Needs Someone Like You" at Shepherd's Grove on Sunday January 1, 2017. 

With this message, Pastor Schuller reminds us that we all have gifts and talents that the world needs. Just like Jesus, we have the same power by faith to bring the best out of people. If we use words to describe ourselves in a negative way, we will convince ourselves that it is true because words harbor an inconceivable amount of power. And since there is authority in our words, we should use that power to proclaim positivity over our lives and the lives of others. We are inspired to start this year off with the enlightening message: "You are the light of the world; you are the salt of the earth".

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.

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.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series entitled “Hope in Your Winter” on the second Sunday of Advent with the message “You'll Find What You're Looking For” at Shepherd’s Grove on December 4, 2016. 

Advent is a season of waiting, expectation, and desire. Many of the desires God has given you are good. In this message, Bobby stresses that if you want something, and it doesn't go against anything the Bible says, then God probably wants it for you too. He encourages us to remind ourselves, "don't lose hope; don't give up," because "He who seeks finds, he who knocks the door will be opened."

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.
