In a culture that tells us in a million different ways to give yourself whatever you want, do whatever you want, and be whatever you want, the message of the kingdom of God, from the lips of Jesus, is to deny yourself and take up a lifestyle of suffering and sacrifice.

Prayer is hard. Prayer feels obscure. And if we're being honest, we don't like to pray. And because we don't like to pray, we try to make life work without it. Jeff Norris looks at various scriptures, in his message "Rooted in Prayer," from the series "Rooted: A Lifestyle in Radical Dependence."

In this life and in these human bodies, both of which are marred by sin, we will never be able to "do it right" as it were. Not if we're left unto ourselves, at least. We are a people who long to get it right. To get it right, so to speak, is to find delight in radical dependence upon the Lord, trusting Him to do what only He can do in our lives. Jeff Norris begins his new series, Rooted: A Lifestyle of Radical Dependence, with his message Radical Dependence (An Introduction) from Psalm 121 and Mark 2:1-5 (ESV).
