SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (DANIEL - 1)

main image

DANIEL was a man who was FORCED to live in a very fast-changing and godless society!

He was FORCED to Face some Realistic Fears about the Future… he was also CONCERNED about his Safety on numerous occasions… and He was often DISCOURAGED about a World that seemed to be Falling Apart all around him! (And don’t ALL of those Realities sound eerily familiar to the World We Live In Today!?) There just seems to be a lot of Confusion / Heartbreak / Fear / Uncertainty… that is surrounding US (Christians) each/every day in the World we live in for sure! Which can often leave us WONDERING at times… IF GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL!? (However…) Through a tremendous amount of HOPE / HUMILITY / WISDOMDANIELwho was a man that lived thousands of years ago in a world very similar to ours… demonstrated to US TODAY some extremely valuable lessons in HOW we can not only SURVIVEbut also learn how to THRIVE in our surroundings! So we’re gonna spend a few weeks here at COC - talking about Each of those Incredible Attributes and learning HOW to Apply them to our lives… especially when it seems sometimes like we’re LIVING AMONG LIONS! Be sure to do everything possibly to NOT MISS this Powerful New Series… and bring a friend too! See you soon!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1) DANIEL’S STORY

 

God OFTEN chooses to be WITH You IN Your Trials… rather than DELIVER You FROM Your Trials!

 

GOD’S DISCIPLINE/JUDGMENT with ANYONE (Including You!) is always PERFECT in TIMING / SCOPE and REASON!

 

DANIEL ALWAYS CHOSE TO KNOW/BELIEVE THAT GOD WAS IN CONTROL OF WHO WAS IN CONTROL!

 

No matter HOW BAD things got... DANIEL always CHOSE to BELIEVE that GOD was BIGGER THAN BABYLON!

 

GOD'S DISCIPLINE/JUDGMENT always HAS and always WILL... BEGIN WITH HIS OWN PEOPLE!

 

GOD will always PREPARE us FOR BATTLE… before He SENDS us INTO BATTLE!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9:00A / 10:45A)

"Have you ever made a DUMB Decision in life?” (Well we’ve got some Good News if you have…) Did you know that God has dedicated an Entire Book of the Bible - called PROVERBS… that’s designed to specificallyANSWER the Difficult Questions of life and to Bring Insight and WISDOM to all the kinds of issues we often encounter in our daily lives – that we often tend to make Dumb Decisions with time/time again? (So here’s what we’ve decided to do here at COC…) We’ve been taking a few weeks this summer to talk a little more about HOW to Make Better DecisionsHOW to make the things we Say really matter…HOW to best Parent our Kids no matter what stage of life we’re in… HOW to Fool Proof our Entire Life… (And ultimately…) HOW to set a Course for Life that our Families can flourish in! So… Don’t Miss the Last Week of this Fun/Insightful little series we’re calling… WisDUMB!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (5) STOP… COLLABORATE and LISTEN! (Mat Balgaard)

 

Proverbs 16:9… A Man PLANS his way - but the Lord DIRECTS HIS STEPS!

 

STOP WORRYING or you’ll eventually get stuck with PARALYSIS by OVER-ANALYSIS!

 

Step-Out in FAITH and Trust God to either GIVE YOU FAVOR or CLOSE A DOOR!

 

God’s Will often becomes Clearer with Motion(Keep Moving!)

 

Between the PROMISE and the PAYOFF - there’s always a PROCESS!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9:00A / 10:45A)
