ARISE with Confidence
ARISE With Confidence – Ken Wetmore We live in a time when it’s a real challenge to know what or whom to believe. We regularly make presumptions based on our personal biases. However, when we have doubts and questions, there is one constant, and that is the life of Jesus. Even when the way of Jesus seems unreasonable, difficult, or even impossible, he calls us to ARISE and believe that, in him, all things are possible. Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: What things create confidence in you? What causes you to lack confidence in Jesus? How well do you know Jesus?  What would it take to know Him better? What reflection(s) resonated with you most this week?  Let us know by using the information below: ■ Text/Voicemail:  407-965-1607 ■ Email:  podcast@wholelife.church SUBSCRIBE NOW:  This Is Whole Life - https://this-is-whole-life.captivate.fm/listen (https://this-is-whole-life.captivate.fm/listen)  Our companion podcast, This Is WholeLife, is where we dive deeper into the message and topic at hand with Pastor Ken and Pastor Jeff along with host Randy Magray.  It’s the perfect midweek commute podcast to stay in touch with what’s being talked about at WholeLife Church and we encourage your questions, comments, and feedback which we will share on the next episode!   Thank you for listening!  Our show is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, and anywhere you listen to podcasts!  If you’ve enjoyed this episode, please share it with your family, friends, and on social media at the following links and while you’re there, say ‘hello’!   Twitter:  https://twitter.com/wholelifeorl (https://twitter.com/wholelifeorl)  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wholelifeorlando (https://www.facebook.com/wholelifeorlando) Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/wholelifeorlando (https://www.instagram.com/wholelifeorlando)  NEXT WEEK 1/29/22:  ’’ARISE with God’s Spirit’ by Ken Wetmore To learn more about WholeLife Church visit our website:  http://www.WholeLife.Church (www.WholeLife.Church) The theme music for Speaking of Grace was written, produced, and performed by WholeLife Church’s own, Phillip Burks - https://www.phillipburks.com/ (https://www.phillipburks.com/).

ARISE With Peace
ARISE With Peace – Jeff Cinquemani It’s impossible for us to see into the future, and that’s probably a good thing. However, sometimes we find ourselves desperate to understand our current situation. We are called to trust, and we are invited to find freedom in God’s sovereignty. In the midst of our darkest storms or our brightest mornings, Jesus asks us to ARISE and find peace in his presence.  Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: 1. As you reflect back on times in your life where you were truly at peace, who or what do you think helped to foster that peace? 2. In the sermon we talked about four areas where Jesus provides avenues of strength and comfort in our pursuit of peace. They were:  A. Jesus knows, experiences, and understands our sorrow and grief.       B. Jesus is invested and involved in working out of our best interests.      C. Jesus knows the bigger picture; he sees the roadmap and has already been down that path.      D. Jesus has the power to change our present internal and external reality. Which of these areas provides the most strength and comfort? 3. In looking at D in question number 2, how can we see that differently through understanding A, B, and C? 4. In your past experience with suffering, what have you had to let go of or walk away from for you to start understanding peace? What reflection(s) resonated with you most this week?  Let us know by using the information below: ■ Text/Voicemail:  407-965-1607 ■ Email:  podcast@wholelife.church SUBSCRIBE NOW:  This Is Whole Life - https://this-is-whole-life.captivate.fm/listen (https://this-is-whole-life.captivate.fm/listen)  Our companion podcast, This Is WholeLife, is where we dive deeper into the message and topic at hand with Pastor Ken and Pastor Jeff along with host Randy Magray.  It’s the perfect midweek commute podcast to stay in touch with what’s being talked about at WholeLife Church and we encourage your questions, comments, and feedback which we will share on the next episode!   Thank you for listening!  Our show is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, and anywhere you listen to podcasts!  If you’ve enjoyed this episode, please share it with your family, friends, and on social media at the following links and while you’re there, say ‘hello’!   Twitter:  https://twitter.com/wholelifeorl (https://twitter.com/wholelifeorl)  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wholelifeorlando (https://www.facebook.com/wholelifeorlando) Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/wholelifeorlando (https://www.instagram.com/wholelifeorlando)  NEXT WEEK 1/22/22:  ’’ARISE with Confidence’ by Ken Wetmore To learn more about WholeLife Church visit our website:  http://www.WholeLife.Church (www.WholeLife.Church) The theme music for Speaking of Grace was written, produced, and performed by WholeLife Church’s own, Phillip Burks - https://www.phillipburks.com/ (https://www.phillipburks.com/).

ARISE With Trust
ARISE With Trust – Ken Wetmore If nothing else, 2021 taught us we are not in control. Finding ourselves in a third year of shut downs and restrictions caused frustration and a desperate need for autonomy. As we consider the Mission and Vision of WholeLife Church, what can we learn from this past year about the fragility of human solutions and the need to trust the One who invites us to ARISE, pick up our “mats” and walk? (John 5:1-8) Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: What do you have in common with “Ben,” the man who Jesus healed after being sick for 38 years? When Jesus asks you if you want to be whole, what are your excuses about why wholeness can’t happen?  How is Jesus calling you to “Arise” in 2022? Will you?  What reflection(s) resonated with you most this week?  Let us know by using the information below: ■ Text/Voicemail:  407-965-1607 ■ Email:  podcast@wholelife.church SUBSCRIBE NOW:  This Is Whole Life - https://this-is-whole-life.captivate.fm/listen (https://this-is-whole-life.captivate.fm/listen)  Our companion podcast, This Is WholeLife, is where we dive deeper into the message and topic at hand with Pastor Ken and Pastor Jeff along with host Randy Magray.  It’s the perfect midweek commute podcast to stay in touch with what’s being talked about at WholeLife Church and we encourage your questions, comments, and feedback which we will share on the next episode!   Thank you for listening!  Our show is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, and anywhere you listen to podcasts!  If you’ve enjoyed this episode, please share it with your family, friends, and on social media at the following links and while you’re there, say ‘hello’!   Twitter:  https://twitter.com/wholelifeorl (https://twitter.com/wholelifeorl)  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wholelifeorlando (https://www.facebook.com/wholelifeorlando) Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/wholelifeorlando (https://www.instagram.com/wholelifeorlando)  NEXT WEEK 1/15/22:  ’ARISE with Peace’ by Jeff Cinquemani To learn more about WholeLife Church visit our website:  http://www.WholeLife.Church (www.WholeLife.Church) The theme music for Speaking of Grace was written, produced, and performed by WholeLife Church’s own, Phillip Burks - https://www.phillipburks.com/ (https://www.phillipburks.com/).

Simply Christmas:  Simple Peace
Simply Christmas: Simple Peace – Ken Wetmore John 14:27 (NLT) “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” This Christmas it’s simple: Jesus has gifted you with peace. Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: Take time this week to reflect on Jesus’ birth. Put yourself there. Imagine you are Joseph, Mary, the shepherds, the angels, or the wise men. What emotions do you feel? Reflect on times you have felt hurt, pain, and suffering. Did you/Do you feel peace during that/those time(s)? If peace is a fruit of the Spirit, how often are you asking God for that gift? Which of the reflections resonated with you this week?

Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: What does friendship with God look like to you? If God is your friend, how has God transformed your life?

Simply Grateful
Simply Grateful – Ken Wetmore Thanksgiving and Jonah: it may seem like an unlikely pair. With that said, Jonah has a lot to teach us about gratitude. We often express more gratitude for the material comforts that God gives us than the relationships he has also given us. This Thanksgiving, remember to thank God for ALL the people who have been placed in your path. Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: Make a list of the things for which you are grateful. Why are you grateful for the things you listed? If the things on your list were taken away, would you still feel gratitude to God? Take a moment to bask in the knowledge that God feels delirious joy in your life. Which of the reflections or sermon snippets resonated with you this week?

Love Is...Faithful, Hopeful, and Enduring

Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: Reflection Question 1: Which aspect of love found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 do you find most challenging. Which aspect comes the most naturally? Reflection Question 2: What’s your biggest takeaway from the “Love is” series?

Love Is…All About Truth & Justice
Love Is…All About Truth & Justice – Ken Wetmore It isn’t just Superman who put Truth and Justice together. In 1 Corinthians 13:7, Paul writes that love never rejoices about injustice but instead rejoices when the truth wins. If we are to love like Jesus, we can never be happy--or worse--apathetic when we see injustice. God’s people are to fight for truth and justice in this world, even if it may never fully come about until Jesus returns.  Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: How much does the news impact your moods? Do you find yourself enjoying the misfortune you see there when it belongs to a person or political party with whom you disagree? Do you enjoy it when someone for whom you don’t care, like an ex, boss or antagonist, suffers misfortune? Do you think Jesus enjoys their misfortune? If you do, re-read the Gospels, and think deeply about this question as you read. What does it look like for you to rejoice with Jesus when he wins out?

Love Is...Not A Grudge Holder
Love Is…Not A Grudge Holder – Ken Wetmore When Jesus told his disciples to forgive others 70 times 7, he wasn’t suggesting we keep a tally board. He was suggesting we are to forgive so much that we can’t keep track of how much we have forgiven. The happiest people are those who are able to let go of the scoreboard and hold onto God’s love.. Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: Do you hold grudges and keep track of how you have been wronged? How often do you think about how you have been hurt by others in the past? Who has the largest “debt account” in your mind? If you aren’t sure if you hold grudges, one way of knowing is thinking about how often your response to someone else’s complaint about you is, “Yeah but you . . .” What would it look like if you eliminated the phrase, “Yeah, but you . . .”?

Love Is...Not Irritable
Love Is…Not Irritable – Ken Wetmore Paul concludes 1 Corinthians 13:5 with a declaration that love is not irritable. Not being irritable is next to impossible. Irritation, however, is the seed from which bitterness and rage grow into a plant the crowds love. Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: How willing are you to admit you are irritable? Can you think of any times you were irritable in the last week? What steps do you take to resolve irritability? Are there more steps you need to add? If irritability is an issue in your life, ask someone you love to be your accountability partner. Have them check in with you every day to see how you are feeling and how you are dealing with irritability. If irritability has taken over your life, make an appointment to see a health professional to provide support and help. Which of the reflections or sermon snippets resonated with you this week?

Love Is...Flexible
Love Is…Flexible – Ken Wetmore Love does not demand its own way. In other words, love is flexible. It allows others to exercise freedom. This does not mean there are no consequences. It simply means that true love is an open hand, not a closed hand. Someone once said that you can hold more sand with an open hand than with a hand made into a fist.  Our #WholeLifeReflections for this week: What is the most selfless action you have personally observed? How selfless and flexible are you in your relationships? Take a few minutes each day this week to visualize Jesus’ selflessness for you as He willingly went to the cross for you.

Love Is...Not Rude
Love Is…Not Rude – Ken Wetmore There are a few jerks out there, but for the most part, we aren’t rude until we perceive someone is being rude to us. Paul reminds us that true love isn’t rude even when others are rude to us. Love compels us to ask ourselves, What is the proper way to act in this situation in spite of how the other may be treating me?

Love Is...Not Boastful
Love Is…Not Boastful – Ken Wetmore Guy Kawasaki, venture capitalist, author, and chief evangelist for Apple, once said, “If you don't toot your own horn, don't complain that there's no music.” Self-confidence carefully mixed with humility is a good thing, but without humility, self-confidence can quickly turn into arrogance, and from there into bragging that promotes one’s self at the expense of others. No wonder Paul put bragging and arrogance in the love-killer column. Find out the path to healthy self-worth without killing love in the process.

This week we’ll explore the cost of jealousy and the solution to eradicating it. #WholeLifeReflections for this week: What do you not want to share with someone else, or are you afraid of losing to someone else (jealousy)?

Love Is...Patient and Kind
Love Is…Patient and Kind – Ken Wetmore What are you willing to suffer for another person? Patience is defined as being “ able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.” Certainly, this is something we see displayed in Jesus' life. Today, Jesus is asking his family to be patient with family members who make life difficult. The Good News is this is a gift of the Holy Spirit for those who ask. #WholeLifeReflections for this week: With whom do you struggle to be patient in your life? Without placing the blame on the other person(s), why do you think you are impatient with them? How could you be kind to this person(s)? Stop and pray for the person(s) you’ve been thinking of, and ask God to help you be patient and kind in your relationship with them. Which reflection spoke to you this week?

The Messy Middle
The Messy Middle – John Monday Instead of giving answers, God places us in complex, messy, fraught relationships and tells us, “Love and trust me as I have loved and trusted you. And love and trust each other.” It’s not for us to help God achieve his goals; it’s our job and privilege to love each other, to hold one another’s hand in the pain, the joy, the confusion... in the mess. #WholeLifeReflections for this week: What are the doctrines that are so important to you that you’d be willing to break fellowship with a Christian who disagrees? What does it mean to “Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself? Has there ever been a time that you spoke on behalf of God? Are you comfortable with believing that some of your personal doctrines might be wrong? Are you okay with believing that some of your church doctrines might be wrong?

Great Question:  Does God Cause Pain and Suffering?
Great Question 4: Does God Cause Pain and Suffering? – Ken Wetmore Considering, the story of Hagar and Sarah:  In the Genesis version, there is a lot of difficult complexity - for instance, God sends Hagar back into bondage then tells Abraham to listen to Sarah and cast Hagar and Ishmael into the wilderness. Then, Paul does a REALLY horrible retelling of this story in Galatians. He makes a point we all like - that faith trumps the law - but he does it in a way that has resulted in much Inter-religious strife, gender oppression, etc. Why do all of these horrible things seem sanctioned by, or even motivated by, God? #WholeLifeReflections for this week: Have you ever made a decision that harmed someone else? If so, what did you do to make it right? Do you identify more with Hagar or Sarah and Abraham? Why? Has there ever been a time when you knew God "saw you?" Do you view the characters in the Bible like Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, and Paul as real people with all the character quirks and defects that we have, or as one-dimensional characters? Why would this matter? Does everything God does in the Bible have to make sense in order for you to believe that God is good? Which reflection spoke to you this week?
