We were all created for RELATIONSHIP! (But let’s face it…) Sometimes (Often Times) RELATIONSHIPS can get MESSY! They can create tension and difficulty in many areas of our lives! (They can literally SUCK THE LIFE out of us at times!) So if that’s the case… HOW IN THE WORLD DO WE WORK TOWARDS MAKING THEM RIGHT?  (Well…) We’re gonna take one last look at how to do that… as we wrap up our Current Series here at COC called HOW TO HUG A VAMPIRE! This series could literally be LIFE-CHANGING and RELATIONSHIP-CHANGING for YOU! Please consider joining us…

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (3) SUCK PROOF YOUR SOUL

 

Lesson #1 of Suck-Proofing Your Soul... NOBODY CAN TAKE WHAT YOU'VE ALREADY GIVEN AWAY FREELY! (Thieves Don't Break Into Empty Houses!)

 

If you can have a FUNERAL for the EXPECTATIONS that others can never meet… then GOD will give you a RESURRECTION that will exceed any EXPECTATION that you will ever have!

 

Lesson #2 of Suck-Proofing Your Soul... NEVER WRITE ANYBODY OFF - BUT ALWAYS WATCH YOUR BALANCE SHEET! (Know your Boundaries because BOUNDARIES ARE BIBLICAL!)

 

Gordon MacDonald… You have to have enough people around you that IRRIGATE your life…  to offset the people who IRRITATE you in life!

 

Lesson #3 of Suck-Proofing Your Soul... REAL LOVE DOESN’T LEAK - IT OVERFLOWS!

 

Jesus KNEW that the only place that He could GET what He NEEDED to GIVE TO OTHER PEOPLE… was only found in the PRESENCE OF HIS FATHER! (A lot of us think that we’re LOVING PEOPLE… but what we’re really doing is LEAKING!)

 

 

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

Sunday Snapshot… (2) THE CONTINUUM OF FORGIVENESS

 

Ephesians 4:27…  ...and do not give the devil a foothold. (Satan Loves A Bitter Believer!)

 

BITTERNESS... It usually has LESS TO DO with the MAGNITUDE of the OFFENSE and MORE TO DO with the PROXIMITY of the OFFENDER!

 

If you're carrying around BITTERNESS in your heart towards someone... (Always Remember...) HURT PEOPLE - HURT PEOPLE!

 

If you don't choose FORGIVENESS… you’rechoosing BITTERNESS! (Those are the only two choices!)

 

The way you DIG UP THE ROOT OF BITTERNESS… is with the SHOVEL OF FORGIVENESS! (Ephesians 4:31a)

 

If you appreciate God's FORGIVENESS given to YOU - you should extend the same FORGIVENESS to anyone who has hurt you! (Forgiveness isn't always for the one who has hurt you - it's for YOU!)
