SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (HIDDEN IDENTITIES - 1)

main image

Is there a side of you that EVERYONE ELSE SEES - but you and only you know WHO the REAL YOU is? Maybe you're tired of playing the game and you're desperately desiring to BE WHO GOD CREATED YOU TO BE!? Maybe it's time to TAKE OFF YOUR MASK and stop HIDING YOUR REAL IDENTITY? If this is YOU... then please don't miss our Brand New Series we're starting this week at COCthat we're calling "HIDDEN IDENTITIES!" Praying you'll join us...

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1) HIDING FROM GOD

 

Genesis 2:24-25… For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. Adam and his wife were both NAKED and they felt NO SHAME! (Point...) BEFORE SIN THERE WAS NO SHAME! (SIN = HIDING)

 

When we SIN we begin to believe that the only way TO BE SAFE is to HIDE! It's time to stop connecting WHAT WE'VE DONE or WHAT'S BEEN DONE TO US with our REAL IDENTITY! You are a Child of God nonetheless so there’s no need to HIDE! Find your FREEDOM in Confession/Repentance!

 

Genesis 3:9… But the Lord God called to the man… WHERE ARE YOU? -- You think God didn't know where Adam was? (NO!) He asked… so Adam would recognize where he was!

 

Genesis 3:21… The Lord God MADE GARMENTS OF SKIN for Adam and his wife and CLOTHED THEM! -- God made a "COVERING" for them! He's waiting for YOU to come out of HIDING and TAKE OFF YOUR MASK!

 

WHERE ARE YOU WITH GOD RIGHT NOW? (HIDING?) TAKE OFF THE MASK! (Because...) The SOONER you can FIND THE FREEDOM / GRACE and FORGIVENESS (THE REAL YOU!) that GOD HAS WAITING FOR YOU - the better you will be!

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (NO WAY THAT JUST HAPPENED!? - 4)

main image

Do you believe in MIRACLES? Are you PRAYING for the IMPOSSIBLE to HAPPEN? You can chalk it up to coincidence or luck if you want… but we think there’s SOMETHING BIGGER GOING ON when the IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENS! We believe it so much that we’ve started talking about the WONDER and JOY of when JESUS SHOWS UP AND SHOWS OFF – with a series we’ve been calling “NO WAY THAT JUST HAPPENED?!” It’s all centered around APPRECIATING the FANTASTIC / CRAZY and OUTLANDISH MIRACLES that REALLY DO HAPPEN… and how we can learn how we can better RECOGNIZE the MIRACULOUS WORK of JESUS in our lives! I hope you’ll consider joining us for the last week…

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (4) MIRACLES OF PROVISION

 

First Things First... God Promises to Meet Your NEEDS - He Never Promises to Meet Your WANTS!

 

First Thing we know about God's Miracles of Provision... WHEN GOD GUIDES… HE ALWAYS PROVIDES! (Isaiah 58:11)

 

Could it be possible that GOD HAS… “PROVIDED” FOR YOUR NEEDS… yet YOU TOOK the PROVISION and SPENT IT ON YOUR WANTS?

 

One of the things that we struggle with the most is not being FIXED on GOD... but rather being FIXATED on WHAT WE LACK!

 

Second Thing we know about God's Miracles of Provision... GOD MIRACULOUSLY MULTIPLIES WHAT IS GIVEN! (Note... You have to GIVE first!)

 

Third Thing we know about God's Miracles of Provision... YOU MIGHT BE A PART OF GOD'S MIRACULOUS PROVISION! (Sometimes... He invites YOU to be a part of Someone Else's Miracle! How cool is that!?)
