SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (#RELATIONSHIPGOALS - 1)

main image

The #PerfectMarriage isn’t always as easy as it looks! People often look at happy images of marriages on social media and say… “I WANT THAT!” - but they don’t really know what “THAT” is!? The real secret to a Great Marriage goes far deeper than just a simple#HASHTAG! (With that being said…) We’re gonna talk a little more in depth here at COC the next few weeks about what type of #GOALS you should actually strive for in YOUR MARRIAGE or YOUR FUTURE MARRIAGE! We hope you’ll consider joining us as we talk a little bit about #RELATIONSHIPGOALS!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1) CHRIST-CENTERED

 

The First Question you should ask yourself with any Relationship/Marriage is "WHAT IS YOUR LIFE CENTERED AROUND?" (If it's not JESUS CHRIST - you're already behind in the game!)

 

Being CHRIST-CENTERED is a lot different than just Calling Yourself a CHRISTIAN!

 

Whatever goes IN the “CENTER” of Your LifeALWAYS INFLUENCES YOU! It INFLUENCES Your Values/Beliefs/Actions/Decisions - which ultimately INFLUENCES Your IMPACT and "INFLUENCE" in this life!

 

MARRIAGE is more about a JOURNEY as opposed to a DESTINATION! (It takes some serious INTENTIONALITY!)

 

Any time you're doing your "Own Thing" and CHRIST isn't the CENTER OF YOUR LIFE... it's called SIN! You can't build a Life of Righteousness in the Future on a Foundation of Sin Today!

 

Want a Christ-Centered Marriage? PRAY WITH YOUR SPOUSE! Keep it Short/Consistent and Simple! (JUST PRAY!)

2020 Survival Guide: How Would Jesus Live In A Pandemic? - 3

main image

ProtestsElections and Covid-19OH MY! This isn’t Kansas anymore Dorothy… Welcome to 2020! (And…) Here’s your SURVIVAL GUIDE! While the World around us is seemingly going CrAzY… The Apostle Paul gives us some pretty incredible insight through Romans 12 on how we are NOT to be CONFORMED or CHANGED by what we’re seeing unfold around us… but rather be TRANSFORMED by GOD through the RENEWING OF OUR MINDS! (So we might Think Differently!) Would you consider joining us this week at COC – as we head into the Last Week of a little series we’ve been calling 2020 SURVIVAL GUIDE: HOW JESUS WOULD LIVE DURING A PANDEMIC! (In this series…) We’ve showing you some practical ways on learning not just how to SURVIVE – but rather learning how to THRIVE in a World that has seriously become PLAGUED by ANXIETYDOUBT and DEPRESSION!

Sunday Snapshot… (3) FINDING HAPPINESS IN A PANDEMIC (Mat Balgaard)

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3) - These are people who embrace daily dependence on God regardless of what they have – this makes them HAPPY!

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:4) - Mourners are those who face death as a reality of life! (And...) Rather than fearing it - they embrace it knowing that the FEAR OF DYING will ROB YOU of the JOY OF LIVING!

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:5) - MEEKNESS ISN'T WEAKNESS! Being MEEK is having a proper estimation of yourself - within the broader context of God’s Kingdom Plan! That Perspective brings genuine HAPPINESS!

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:6) - Happy People are those who KNOW the RIGHT THING TO DO and have found the COURAGE to DO IT!

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:10) - YOU ARE GOING TO SUFFER IN THIS LIFE for doing what is RIGHT and/or WRONG! (But...) You will only be truly HAPPY if you SUFFER for RIGHTEOUSNESS SAKE!

HAPPINESS and UNHAPPINESS are both OUTCOMES of the WAY A LIFE IS LIVED!
