OBEDIENCE! We love it in other people… just not so much for ourselves! We want our kids to OBEY we train our dogs to OBEY... but when it is OUR TURN to OBEY - our first reaction is to say… “You’re not the boss of me!” We don’t want someone else to take away our freedom! Jesus tells us that when it comes to OBEYING GOD - we don’t really lose our freedom… we actually gain His Love! (So…) If you want a deeper experience of God’s Love for You - then please consider joining us the remaining couple weeks as we continue discovering a few more things on BEcoming the Heart - Handsand Voice of Jesus – in our current series we’re calling O“BE”DIENT! We’ll see you Sunday!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (2) BE His Hands (Pastor Mat Balgaard)

 

Our Ministry is determined by our Design! What God made us to BE determines what He intends us to DO!

 

One of the Reasons the Church Exists is to Equip People to Discover God’s Purpose for Their Lives - then give them an outlet to accomplish it wherever they are!

 

Ephesians 2:10... For we are God’s Workmanship - created IN Christ Jesus to DO Good Works - which God prepared in advance for us to DO!

 

Good Works are NOT something we DO... WE ARE GOOD WORKS!

 

Spiritual Gifts are the Empowering Presenceof the Holy Spirit given to BElievers upon Salvation to be USED in the Body of Christ for Everyday Works of Service!

 

We’ve been Created-Saved-Called-Gifted-Authorized-Prepared-Accountable and Rewarded for the Ministry that God has Givento Us!

 

 

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

Sunday Snapshot… (1) BE His Heart (Pastor Ben Gores)

 

Jesus starts with LOVE then moves to OBEDIENCEnot the other way around!

 

“Discipleship is the process of becoming WHO JESUS WOULD BE if HE WERE YOU!” (Dallas Willard)

 

“It is what we THINK God is like that will determine the RELATIONSHIP we have with Him!” (James Bryan Smith)

 

When we choose to OBEY God’s Commandswe are not LOSING OUR FREEDOM - we are GAINING GOD'S LOVE!

 

When you KNOW that YOU ARE LOVED - that is when “OBEY” isn’t a “HAVE TO” it is a “WANT TO!"

 

The Branch's ONLY JOB is to STAY CONNECTED to the VINE! (Meaning...) You're ONLY JOB as a Believer is to STAY CONNECTED TO JESUS!
