SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (IN THE FIRE - 1)

main image

Life is Full of Battles... and often times - those Battles are just trying to block your Progress! (So…) We’re gonna take the next three weeks here at COC and talk a little bit about how to handle those challenges in life through the Power of God… in a brand new series we’re calling IN THE FIRE! We’re gonna show you a few Biblical Approaches on how you can face those Defining Moments in life that are often Tough/Difficult and sometimes feel Overwhelming! We hope you’ll take time to visit us and learn how to face the HEATIN THE FIRE!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1) THERE AIN’T NO EASY WAY OUT

 

DO NOT FEAR! (It's not a Suggestion from Scripture - it's a COMMAND!) The Bible actually tells us "DO NOT FEAR" in some form - over 365 times! (I don't think that's coincidental!)

 

WHO/WHAT you FEAR MOST is ultimately WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO WORSHIP!

 

Shadrach/Meshach and Abednego had to make a call “IN THE FIRE” of a Defining MomentON THE GOD WHO IS ABLE or ON THE KING WHO THOUGHT HE WAS! (Are you making the right call in your FIREY MOMENTSof life?)

 

GOD'S PRESENCE IS ALWAYS GREATER THAN YOUR PROBLEM!

 

YOU DON’T RUIN YOUR LIFE ALL AT ONCE… YOU RUIN IT ONE STEP AT A TIME!

 

FAITH IS LIVING IN ADVANCE… BY WHAT WE UNDERSTAND IN REVERSE!

GOD IS WITH YOU (IMMANUEL) through the pain! He comforts you in the waiting! When you’re anxious about your future - He gives you courage! In every moment of life... we have GOD WITH US! (And...) He sent His Only Son (Jesus) to suffer/die to BE WITH YOU! (So...) What have you done to make room for Him? Please consider joining us this Christmas Eve (Dec 24th / 3p or 5p) at the MHS Performing Arts Center - as we talk a little bit about WHATGod has done through His Son Jesus Christ to BE WITH YOU!

 

 

Christmas Eve Snapshot… IMMANUEL (GOD WITH US)

 

Matthew 1:18-23… This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name JESUS, because He will save His people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him IMMANUEL (which means “GOD WITH US”).

 

The INCARNATION is when GOD BECAME FLESH… in the PERSON of HIS SONJESUS CHRIST!

 

IMMANUEL (GOD WITH US) means…

-HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU!

-HE WILL NEVER FORSAKE YOU!
-HE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU!
-HIS SPIRIT WILL ALWAYS LIVE INSIDE OF YOU!

 

JUST… KEEP… LOVING…
