Abundant Life of the Body
The Well Church Edmond
by Rob Carmack
15h ago
For lots of us, we have been handed a divided way of seeing reality: "Physical vs. Spiritual." This has perhaps caused us to split all physical aspects of life – including our relationship to our own bodies – away from our understanding of spirituality. But what we actually see in scripture is that we are fully integrated beings. We cannot pull our spiritual and physical things apart without doing damage to our whole selves. Our spirit, the intangible essence of ourselves, is completely entangled with our physicality. Our flesh and blood and bones are part of our spiritual selves ..read more

Mind

The lives of our minds are important to Jesus. He designed our minds to govern our emotions, and our actions, interpret how we see the world, and to store our memories. Sometimes our minds fool us into thinking things are worse than they are. They forget the goodness that’s all around us. They are easily distracted and influenced by false realities, And sometimes they need healing. Jesus instructs us to love him with our minds. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. - Matthew 22:37, NIV Loving God with all our minds looks like a "superabundanc ..read more

A Super Abundance of Life
The Well Church Edmond
by Ashley Engle
1w ago
The abundant life doesn’t just happen. It requires intentionality. It requires an awareness that what is going on in the world does not get the final say on what happens in your mind, body, and soul. Most people will not live the abundant life. Because they won’t seek it. They won’t listen for the Good Shepherd’s Voice. We’ve only got this one life. And we were created to be alive in this time and place. What will we do with these lives we have been given? What will we do with these minds? These bodies? These souls? Commit to being honest. Commit to listening to voice of the Good Shepherd as h ..read more

Missional Culture
The Well Church Edmond

Jesus commanded his disciples to live lives that are guided by his teachings. Our mission should reflect what God sent him to do: Proclaim good news to the poor, Proclaim freedom for the prisoners, Restore sight to the blind, and Set the oppressed free. As a church- we are praying that we will continue to go back to Jesus’ mission as the model for our mission. May his mission be our lens for setting our missional culture here- both locally and globally.

Hospitality

Why is hospitality important? It was the way that Jesus lived, it was the way the early church operated. Embracing the other, opening up a seat at our tables. Jesus knew the power of hospitality to heal the hurting, so we do as he did ..read more

Discipleship
The Well Church Edmond

Discipleship is an important part of God's vision for The Well Church. It's the process by which we are transformed more into the likeness of Jesus. Through Discipleship, we acquire head knowledge about Jesus, we do what he says, we imitate him, and we disciple other people. The church is where this happens in relationship with Jesus and with other people. We pray that we will be a church that continues to make discipleship a priority as we move into the next season ..read more

I Was Blind But Now I See
The Well Church Edmond
by Ashley Engle
1M ago
In John 4:43-54, we see a Roman official beg Jesus to heal his son. Despite the shallow faith of the people of Galilee, Jesus healed him at the right time in the right place. From this story we see that miracles can inspire our faith, but our faith shouldn’t depend on miracles. This second miracle in the book of John also communicates deep truths about Jesus to the battered and bruised people of God. He is the tender and merciful one who created all things, redeems us, and paid the price for us. He wants to heal us, and he will answer when we cry out to him ..read more

Do Not Be Afraid
The Well Church Edmond

In John chapter 6 we see the miracle of Jesus walking on water, and we reviewed the juxtaposition of the Exodus story from Jewish tradition. What we learn from this miracle is more about trusting God to have full control, especially in overwhelming situations, emphasizing the importance of naming the storm, recognizing its temporality, and finding solace in moments of silence and reflection ..read more

Do You Want To Get Well?
The Well Church Edmond
by Matt Toney
2M ago
In John chapter 5 we see Jesus heal a man who had been paralyzed for 38 years. He asks the man, “Do you want to get well?” Jesus isn’t asking him truly if he wants to get better, but instead is speaking to the reality that sometimes it’s easier to resign ourselves to live with our issues than to heal from them. It may be easier to find comfort in what is familiar –from mental & physical conditions to our spiritual beliefs & applications– than it is to accept Jesus' consistent challenge of getting better. If we hold so tightly to the same old things we may miss the new things Jesus is d ..read more
