How would you live if you were guaranteed a resurrection? Pastor Kim McManus leads us through the book of John to discover what a life fully surrendered to Jesus looks like – and how it ultimately frees us completely from the fear of death.
Delivered in the context of a teacher to a student, Pastor Kim breaks down the struggle of Jesus against the religious men of his era as if we are talmid, or one of Jesus’s disciples. Through a lens of love, Pastor Kim shows us the intent behind Jesus’s message, his story, and his call to eternal life.

In his message ‘Escape Room,’ Pastor Erwin McManus delivers a powerful message that illuminates how Jesus is the ‘escape’ from the rooms built by negative forces in our lives. Whether it be mistakes from our past, feelings of shame or inadequacy, or fear of the future, all of us have an escape room from which only Jesus can set us free.
Pastor Erwin draws from a story in John 8:2-11, where Jesus is found in a crowd of people accusing a woman who has been caught in adultery. The religious elite are intent on trapping the woman in her worst moment, but Jesus offers her freedom and a path to a better future.
“If you want to find your way out of the escape room, you need to let Jesus be your defense.”

What alienates us from the presence of God? How do we not succumb to fear of failure, but have faith in a better future? Pastor Erwin McManus brings a compelling message that reminds us where the real battle of our lives is won or lost: the battle of our inner world.
In 1 Kings 19:1-19 Elijah was afraid of a threat of death from Jezebel and ran for his life. After a great moment of courage where God provided for him, his faith was corrupted by fear. Fear is the negative expression of our faith, founded in a belief that the worst will happen to us. Pastor Erwin teaches us that whatever informs us, forms us; we must listen and pay close attention to the inner voices that shape our choices.
Our future is not destined to be a replica of our past. God empowers each of us to face our fears and run into our freedom. Though we can be tempted like Elijah to run away from our fears, God reminds us over and over in the scriptures that He will meet us in our fear and use it to make us stronger. God wants to shape our inner world in the midst of our biggest battle. It is through the mastery of our inner worlds that we will find peace.
“The warriors aren’t ready for battle until they come to know peace.”
“Inner Peace” message by Erwin McManus, previously recorded at Hillsong Colour Conference 2019.
