Hello from Jacksonville, Florida and welcome to the podcast of Destiny Church of Jacksonville! If you've followed us for any length of time, you are well aware of how passionate Pastors Chris and Jodi Tomlinson are in their pursuit of everything that God has ordained for Destiny Church, it's body of believers, and ultimately for the city of Jacksonville and beyond. Today's message and our new series, "Man in the Mirror", is no exception to the expression of that passion. Knowing what we need to be about doing and choosing to disobey or even run from what God has called us to often finds us in a situation where God has our full and complete attention. Follow along today as we look at the life of Jonah and the consequences of comfort.

Words have power. It's a truth that would be very difficult to deny given our current social climate. Words, even those that aren't true, are causing tectonic shifts of change in our entertainment, political, and educational systems, where fortunes, reputations, and livelihoods are being both created and destroyed in real-time as we experience the 24-hour news cycle. Today, Pastor Chris discusses 5 crucial truths about our words, how we filter them, and the potential power that is carried in them. This timely study will help you choose to speak life into every situation you encounter!

For most of us, when faced with an uncomfortable or inconvenient situation, we'll either try to avoid it altogether or try to figure out a way to minimize our time there. But as Pastor Chris shows us in today's teaching, there are often opportunities and blessings for us and for those around us if we choose to pass through circumstances that appear to be less than ideal. God's plans for us are always best for us, even when those plans takes us through some places we'd rather not go.

Series: Easter 2018
Duration: 33 mins 48 secs
Sometimes we find ourselves in situations or circumstances where all we can see and feel is pain. Whether it's the loss of a loved one or perhaps a friendship or other close relationship that unexpectedly goes cold or even maybe the loss of a job or a dream, we often feel like no one could possibly understand what we're going through. But on this Easter Sunday, Pastor Chris shows us that Jesus is alive and well and He knows exactly what we are going through and exactly what we need to overcome. Jesus is all about the business of resurrecting and restoration, bring it all to Him and accept His love, forgiveness, and new life today!

How often have we used today's message title to pass up the opportunity to connect with others or to share a need or a hurt? One of the most common filters we use is the one that says "I'm good...I don't need a thing". The reality is that more often than not, we really could use the hand, or the prayer, or the encouragement. You may even be so out of hope that you think there's nothing that can even be done to help, but as you're going to hear today, that's not the way it has to turn out. God can change an outcome, resurrect a dead dream or even a dead relationship if you will just let Him! Can you drop your filters long enough to let God into your story?

One of our modern, "first-world" problems is how easily we can fool ourselves (and everyone else around us!). Through the miracle of technology, we can apply the filters that make us look more successful, happier, and living a life that's just picture perfect, all the while perceiving ourselves through the lenses of less-than-perfect, of little value, or even as a mistake. But God has shown us so many times through His word that, although we may come up short, He loves us no matter what! That Love is why God gave His son Jesus for us, and as guest teacher Dr. Mitch Arbelaez shows us, our status as sons and daughters of the Most High King is not up for debate. You are valuable and you are loved! Today, let His love forever change your life for the better!

In a world where social media has enabled us to present that perfect image of ourselves, it's difficult to know what's really going on in lives of those around us. Maybe you've been taken in by the temptation to only show the good stuff. The staged, filtered, and the rehearsed material that makes things look so much better than they really are. In this installment of our series "Filters", Pastor Chris gets real and asks us to do the same. We waste an incredible amount of time and energy seeking the approval of others, often times lying to ourselves in the process. If you're ready to experience freedom from the bondage of approval and perfection, this message is a great place to start. God loves you, the true and unfiltered you!

It's hard to imagine life without social media. Whether you're connected just to keep up with what your kids are doing or you're full-on posting every waking minute of every day, social media affects the way we see each other, and almost more importantly, how we see ourselves. As we dig into this new series "Filters", Pastor Chris takes some time to talk about control and how the need for affirmation or the appearance of perfection can cause some unrealistic expectations of ourselves and others. Are you wearing others out with your constant need to be affirmed? Do you struggle to let go and "Let God" fix the problems in others? This message could hold a real breakthrough for you! What control issues has God freed you from? Let us know by going to www.destinychurchjax.com and click on Testimonies.

How many times have you seen those advertisements; you know the "limited-time only", "this offer ends soon, don't delay!" ads that are designed to cause us to buy that car, refinance the house, or a myriad of other responses. While the Bible is full of promises and propositions that are open-ended and can be accessed and at any time, there are some invitations that are not. Today's guest teacher, Alex Ellis, shares a powerful word that carries such an invitation. Do you see the signs of God moving in your own life or others lives? Have you felt an urgent call of God to go deeper, to seek more of His presence in your daily life? Now is the time respond! God is wanting to do something in your life, right now...He's just waiting for your response.

Series: Upgrade
Duration: 38 mins 22 secs
We sincerely hope that our series "Upgrade" has helped you to do just that: To take those most critical areas of your life to the next level. And as always, Pastor Chris has the fitting conclusion for you today, and that's all about upgrading your prayer life. If there's one thing that we must get right, it's spending time with God. The great thing about that is that you don't need to be an expert theologian or have a Masters of Divinity to have a great prayer life. More often than not, it's just consistently taking the time to spend the time with Him. Prayer doesn't have to be complicated, but it needs to happen, and today's message will give you some encouraging strategies to do just that. So if you're a note taker, grab your Bible and a journal join us!
