We have been talking about the fact that although there is not a redo button in life, there is a transformation for us in this life through the work of Jesus.   Romans 12:1-2 says: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. The life o ..read more

I have been thinking a lot about the journey that God has had us on the past 7 years as a church. All the moments I didn’t see coming, all the twists, turns, and changes that come with building a church. And I was reminded of a passage of scripture in Isaiah 43:18-19 that says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” This is what we are going to focus on this week, walking in the NEW thing. We have to chose not to live weighed down by the old ..read more

What I Sees VS. What He Sees “How to live the life of the Kingdom of Heaven into every corner of the human existence.”  Dallas Willard   Our vision at Antioch Austin is only as big as what we collectively commit to. Our hope is that the Gospel grows in you, so that it can grow through you, and impact our city and our world. The great commission of Jesus is to “go and make disciples”, which means we first have to become disciples ourselves.   Jesus called us to be a disciple, a student, an apprentice of who he was. Romans 12:1-2, tells us:   “Therefore, I urge you, br ..read more

This is the first in a series on Fresh Starts, and we will be using Romans 12:1-2 to guide us through. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” To follow Jesus means that all of who we are is affected by the God we serve. In today’s w ..read more

New Life   Our culture naturally associates work with worth. We must work for what we have and to have worth, and anything that goes against this notion is hard for us to receive. The idea of receiving something without having to earn it or be worthy of it is so hard to comprehend because our culture and this world are designed on the idea that “the harder you work the more your worth”, and “If I do the right thing, good things will come to me”. These worldly ideas sound great until you find yourself in the position where you make a mistake. Then these ideas tell you: “you have to work yo ..read more

Worship Belongs to Jesus Palm Sunday is the day where we look to Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.  This was the beginning of the last days of Jesus life on the earth.  This was the start of what Jesus had made clear to his disciples about what was going to happen to him, and in-turn in us.  In Mark 16:21 it says: “From that time on, Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day  ..read more

“Don’t walk into a fight naked” During this series we are learning about spiritual warfare and the importance of understanding how to prepare ourselves accordingly. Spiritual warefare is a real thing. The hope for everyone is that we would grow in our awareness that there are battles going on constantly, both seen and unseen. We know this to be true because of what the Bible tells us. Ephesians 6 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, bu ..read more

Sexualization of Society It is often daunting and glaringly apparent how sexualized our society in the West has become in recent decades. It seems like a battle to simply go into any public space, or engage in any number of avenues for entertainment, without having to traverse the subjective and sexual nature of the content or environment. Why is it that every environment and source of engagement in our society is so saturated with some element of sexualization?   It begins with which voice is being leaned into and given ear to. In the early pages of Genesis there is peaceful communion ..read more
