SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (I’D LIKE YOU MORE IF YOU WERE MORE LIKE ME - 5)

“I’d Like You More If You Were More Like Me!” (Admit it… We have all thought that a time or two in life!) It’s because we ALL want meaningful relationships in our lives with people who are similar to us… don’t we? (But…) Sometimes we struggle to find those life giving relationships that other people seem to always have! (SPOILER ALERT) The Solution to finding those Deep/Meaningful and Life Changing type of RELATIONSHIPS – is NOT found in trying to make other people more like you! The answer is actually found in allowing God to use the people in your life to shape YOU into the better version of the YOU that He created you to be! (The bottom-line is…) WE WERE MADE FOR RELATIONSHIP! (So…) Because this idea is so vital to our existence – we’ve been talking about it the last Four Weeks here at COC and we’ll be wrapping it up This Week! Our Goal has been to maybe help you go a little deeper in your Current Relationships  and possibly help you find a few more that you never knew were available! Please consider joining us the Last Week of our Current Series called… I’D LIKE YOU MORE IF YOU WERE MORE LIKE ME!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (5) THE DEEP DOWN DARK

 

We are all made for COMMUNITY and we SUFFER GREATLY without it!

 

We were CREATED for COMMUNITY... (Therefore…) COMMUNITY is NON-OPTIONAL! (Your life's not gonna work right without it!)

 

Food For Thought… Christian Community doesn’t mean we always get to be with people who are easy to be with!

 

The Real Power that’s feeding our LONELINESS is coming from our inability or lack of being VULNERABLE and HONEST!

 

The final breakthrough to True/AuthenticFellowship/Community will never occur without TRANSPERANCY and HONESTY!

 

It’s only when you’re FULLY KNOWN that you can be FULLY LOVED! (That's what BiblicalCommunity does!)

 

 

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

Sunday Snapshot… (3) COMMITMENT (Ben Gores)

 

Commitment is the Foundation of RELATIONSHIP… without Commitment – there is No Trust!

 

The man who makes a vow makes an appointment with himself at some distantpoint in the future! (G.K. Chesterton)

 

If I Commit to the Outcome but not the Process… I sabotage BOTH! (Mel Schwartz)

 

Sometimes you have to LET GO of what you HAVE so that you can TAKE HOLD of SOMETHING BETTER!

 

Commitment to the Right Thing is a GREATCommitment to the Wrong Thing is DEVESTATING! (Count The Cost Before You Commit!)

 

Focus on what you can CONTROL and Trust God to take care of what you CAN’T CONTROL!
