SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (AVOIDING ELECTION INFECTION - 1)

main image

POLITICS is not an Emotionally Neutral Topic! It has the power to Divide Us instead of Bring Us Together! I wonder… What would it look like if Christians filtered their POLITICS through their FAITH rather than filtering their FAITH through their POLITICS? Don’t Miss this coming Sunday at COC as we take a special week before our upcoming elections for a One-Hit Wonder called… AVOIDING ELECTION INFECTION!

 

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk1) AVOIDING ELECTION INFECTION

 

We can DISAGREE on what’s BEST for PEOPLEBUT we cannot DISAGREE that what’s BEST for PEOPLE is what’s BEST!

 

John 13:35… By THISEVERYONE will KNOW that YOU are MY DISCIPLES… if you LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

 

Matthew 22:37-40… LOVE the Lord Your God with ALL your heart and with ALL your soul and with ALL your mind. This is the First and Greatest Commandment! AND the Second is like it… LOVE your NEIGHBOR as yourself! ALL the Law and the Prophets HANG on these TWO COMMANDMENTS!

 

The Greatest Question you could ever ASK YOURSELF when it comes to putting Your Faith ahead of Your Politics is... WHAT DOES LOVE REQUIRE OF ME?

 

Our REACHING PEOPLE who are FAR FROM JESUS… is NOT in a VOTE or WHAT/HOW we BELIEVE… it’s in HOW we BEHAVE!

 

Our LOVE for OTHERS... is our GREATEST LEVERAGE in SOCIETY as CHRIST FOLLOWERS… it's ALL WE HAVE to REACH PEOPLE FAR FROM JESUS!

 

 

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

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (CHOICES - 4)

main image

We are the RESULT of our Past/Present DECISIONS and CHOICES that we make! While we may agonize over little things like what to wear and what to eat… are we glossing over the bigger CHOICES? There actually might be more on the line than you thought when you make the CHOICES that you make! Don’t miss COC this next week as we finish taking a closer look at one more of those Bigger Decisions in Life as we wrap up our Series called CHOICES!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk4) IMPORTANT over URGENT

 

If you CHOOSE what’s most IMPORTANT… you probably won't have to deal with as many things that apparently seem so URGENT!

 

Luke 10:38-40a… As Jesus and his disciples were on their way… He came to a village where a woman named MARTHA opened her home to Him. She had a sister called MARY… who sat at the Lord's feet… listening to what He said. But MARTHA was DISTRACTED by all the PREPARATIONS that HAD TO BE MADE!

 

WHAT is the MOST IMPORTANT THING in your life right now… that you've been DISTRACTED from PURSUING… because of something that seems more URGENT?

 

The Best Leaders (Moms/Dads/People) in life don’t DO MORE… they DO what MATTERS MOST!

 

Matthew 6:33… But SEEK FIRST His Kingdom and His Righteousness... and ALL THESE THINGS (Everything Else) will be given to you as well.

 

You can keep making EXCUSES… or you can make PROGRESS! -- YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE BOTH!

 

 

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