SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (GATHER/GROW/GIVE/GO - 1)

main image

The most hopeless people in the world… are people who recognize that they have a problem… but have NO VISION from God about how to solve that problem! (So…) WHAT IS VISION ANYWAY? (Well…) VISION is a discovery of God’s Plan as it relates to our lives!
VISION is also foresight with insight! VISION also means beginning something with the end in mind! VISION is also what provides the push through the problems! (And…) VISION is what provides the energy for the effort! (All that to mean…) There is REASON as to WHY WE DOWHAT WE DO… here at COC! (And…) If you’ve ever wondered WHAT THAT IS… then you don’t want to miss this Short Little Series (Gather/Grow/Give/Go) here at COC the next couple weeks… as we talk more specifically about WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk1) ONE MORE MILE

 

Matthew 5:41… And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile - go with him TWAIN.

 

COMPEL… A Readiness and Willingness to Submit to Inconvenience… (Or…) Unreasonable Demands!

 

GATHERING is either a TOTAL TEAM EFFORT… or it’s a LIMITED EFFORT at best… when going ONE MORE MILE!

 

GROWING in Christ DEMANDSONE MORE MILE OF WALKING!

 

GIVING is the BY-PRODUCT of a LIFE that’s travelling ONE MORE MILE!

 

GOING is representative of a LIFE LIVED “IN” THE SECOND MILE!

 

 

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

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (WONDERLIFE - 5)

There are Two Questions we ALL ask ourselves in LIFE… (The First Question is…) WHO AM I? (And…) This is a Question about IDENTITY! (For Example…) Where do you find your identity? (Or…) Whose voices are you giving power to speak into your life? (Or…) What about God’s voice? (Or…) Do you know who God says you are? (And even more importantly…) Do you believe what is true about who God says you are? (The Second Question is…) WHY AM I HERE? (And…) This is a Question about PURPOSE! And the thing you need to know about Purpose is you will never find your God-Given PURPOSE until you first know your IDENTITY!! (So that leads to these Questions…) Have you tried to turn your purpose into your identity? (Or…) Are you living for Your Purpose or God’s Purpose in your life? (Or…) Is your purpose in life bringing you fulfillment? (So with that said…) If you’re Searching for Answers to those Two Questions… you don’t wanna the Last Week… as we talk specifically about HOW to FIND the Answers to those Two Questions… in our Current “WONDERLIFE” Series! (See You Soon!)

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk5) I’M FULLY PRESENT IN MY LIFE!

 

Ecclesiastes 11:4 says… Farmers who WAIT for PERFECT WEATHERNEVER PLANT

If they WATCH every CLOUD… they NEVER HARVEST!

 

It's really easy for us to become PARALYZED in our lives… if we’re always WAITING for the PERFECT SITUATION or CONDITION to happen!

 

WHAT IF… “THIS” IS THE MOMENT IN WHICH YOU WERE CREATED?

 

Your PAST is not actually Your PAST… if it’s still impacting Your PRESENT!

 

PROCRASTINATION... The FAILURE to DOWHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE... WHEN IT NEEDS TO BE DONE!

 

Ephesians 5:8-17… For you were once darkness, but NOW you are the LIGHT in the LORD. (So…) LIVE AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT! (for the Fruit of the Light consists in all Goodness, Righteousness and Truth) and find out WHAT pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But EVERYTHING exposed by the LIGHT becomes VISIBLE and EVERYTHING that is ILLUMINATED becomes a LIGHT. This is why it is said: “WAKE UP SLEEPER! RISE FROM THE DEAD AND CHRIST WILL SHINE ON YOU!” Be very careful then, HOW YOU LIVE - not as unwise but as wise, making the MOST of EVERY OPPORTUNITY, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but UNDERSTANDWHAT the LORD’S WILL is.
