October 21 & 22 - A lot of people "like" Jesus, but they're just not ready to " devote" themselves to Him. Why? Because surrender is never easy and Jesus does ask for our all. And yet so many people devote much more to much less. Our calling is to show just how genuine and desirable life in Christ is.
October 14 & 15 - Church - to a lot of people it sounds so ,well "churchy." And why would anyone want to sit in something called a "pew"? Yet, whether it's during corporate worship, community service or the joy of fellowship, the church is what Christ died to establish, martyrs died to preserve and we live to grow. This week we learn that church IS for you.
October 14 & 15 - If God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, then why are there so many "opinions" about who He is? If God made everyone, then He must be for everyone. Could it be that we Christians send the message, "God isn't for you!"? And whose heart does that break?
October 7 & 8, 2017 - Is it possible to intentionally change to reach other people while still being genuine to who we are? The encouraging news is that this very challenge was faced by the early church - so it would seem that we're on the right track. As followers of Jesus, will we have the courage to allow the Holly Spirit to transform us more and more into who Christ has called us to be?
September 30 & October 1, 2017 - The Apostle Paul wrote, " I have become all things to all men so that some might be saved." obviously Paul was willing to go through a lot of personal change in order to reach people not like himself. How do we need to change? And how fa would we go, not only as individuals, but as a Body, in order to reach Jesus Kinda People?
