Christians believe that when Jesus returns he will establish his Kingdom on earth in a glorious new age free from pain and every form of oppression.

Pastor Luke preaches from Hebrews 3:1–19 in “Heaven in the Real World,” part 3 of his 5-part series “Bigger.”

Jesus Slept – Part 5 of Margins

We’ve seen how our lives are better when we have margin in the areas of time and finance, but really, margin is a great idea wherever we apply it. For example, when we have emotional margin, we aren’t anxious or angry or stressed-out. Margin is equally useful in areas of our physical existence like diet or exercise. But another area many of us could use margin is in the area of sleep.

Pastor Luke teaches from Mark 4 in “Jesus Slept,” the concluding message in his series “Margins.”
