SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST - 3)

main image

For many of us… the Most Wonderful Time of the Year ISN’T SO WONDERFUL! A Painful Past or Our Own Insecurities can often Overshadow the Joy we’re supposed to be feeling during Christmas! (But…) What if this year could look different? (Maybe just Maybe…) It’s time to let God finally Heal some of those Ghosts Of Christmas Past!?

 

We started a Brand New Series last week at COC that deals specifically with some of those “GHOSTS” - Painful Issues like OFFENSESSHAME… and LABELS – that we can often live with for a Lifetime!

 

Please Don’t Miss The Last WeekGHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST – I’m already praying that SOMEONE finds the ability to finally LET THOSE “GHOSTS” GO this Christmas Season!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (3) OVERCOMING LABELS

 

Many of us struggle in the PRESENT because of the "LABELS" that we've picked up from our PAST! (But Remember...) WHAT may be TRUEabout You NOWDOESN’T HAVE TO BE TRUE ABOUT YOU LATER!

 

BEN-ONI… Son of my Sorrow

BENJAMIN… Son of my Right Hand

 

Jacob REFUSED to NAME his CHILD’S DESTINY… according to a MOMENT in HIS HISTORY!

 

GOD has GIVEN YOU the RIGHT… to CALL ANY CIRCUMSTANCE… ANY NAME… ANY LABEL… a BLESSING!

 

Never Forget… (As a Child of God) YOU HAVE NAMING RIGHTS!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)

For many of us… the Most Wonderful Time of the YearISN’T SO WONDERFUL! A Painful Past or Our Own Insecurities can often Overshadow the Joy we’re supposed to be feeling during Christmas! (But…) What if this year could look different? (Maybe just Maybe…) It’s time to let God finally Heal some of those Ghosts Of Christmas Past!?

 

We started a Brand New Series last week at COC that deals specifically with some of those “GHOSTS” - Painful Issues like OFFENSESSHAME… and LABELS– that we can often live with for a Lifetime!

 

Please Don’t Miss This Second WeekGHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST– I’m already praying that SOMEONE finds the ability to finally LET THOSE “GHOSTS” GO this Christmas Season!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (2) OVERCOMING SHAME

 

Isaiah 54:4…"Fear Not! YOU WILL NO LONGER LIVE IN SHAME! Don't Be Afraid! There is no more disgrace for you! You will no longer remember the SHAME of your youth!"

 

How Do I Get Rid Of My SHAME...? (Simple... 1 John 1:9) If We Confess Our Sins- God is Faithful and Just and WILL FORGIVE US OUR SIN… (AND...) PURIFY US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (What A PROMISE!)

 

If/When You are living with SHAME... You are Still Believing that You Are Something that GOD SAYS YOU ARE NOT!

 

God isn’t looking for a Great Performance from YOU… or even a Great Past from YOUHe’s looking for YOU to EMBRACE YOUR POSITION AS HIS CHILD!

 

The ONLY WAY for You to Truly Heal from SHAME... is to Move The Focus from WHAT YOU ARE NOT to WHO CHRIST IS!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)
