Watch this video teaching by Juli entitled Fully God, Fully Man*
The Bible tells us that Jesus is the very image of the invisible God. If we want to know what God is like, we look at Jesus. The Creator of the world became a human baby so that we would not be afraid to to approach him, to know him, to learn from him and to worship him. When Jesus came, He came fully God and fully man, but this is such a hard, hard idea for us to grasp. This is tension we see lived out in Jesus’ life, and it is a tension we have to hold on to as we relate to Jesus. As fully human, he knows our weaknesses, he understands our temptations, so he is approachable. As fully God, he is sovereign over his own birth, his own life, and his own death, as well as over the manner in which he had to cover our sin and shame with his own life.

In the parable of the Sower of the Seed, Jesus explains how the Kingdom of God works, using the illustration of a farmer sowing seed. He shows how the Kingdom operates on the principle of seeds, with the Word of God being the seed that needs planted. Then tells how different reactions to this seed determines the outcome of the harvest in our lives. This parable is an essential truth in unlocking the scriptures and understanding how the Kingdom of God works.

Watch this video teaching by Juli entitled The Race—Ask & Receive*
So many times we ask for something in prayer and we don’t receive an answer, or the answer we are looking for even though Jesus says, everyone who asks, receives. This is confusing!
Many times, we stop asking or we develop a mindset that God selectively answers prayer. However, in Jesus' famous words of the Sermon on the Mount, He explains truths to know about God before asking of Him. Listen as Juli explains what these are so that we can ask expectantly of God in faith.

Watch this video teaching by Juli entitled I.dol.eyes—Greed*
Idols are dangerous and demanding, while continually over-promising and under-delivering. Just as idols are good things turned into ultimate things, so the desires they generate become paralyzing and overwhelming. If unchecked, these beliefs magnify ordinary disappointments and failures into life-shattering experiences.
In this teaching, Juli examines the deep idol of greed by showing how the love of money displaces God from His rightful place of worship. Juli unravels the account of Jesus’s temptation by Satan in the desert and explains how He overcame the idol of greed and then revealed to us the one thing that could topple the idols in our lives.
