UPGRADE… (5) Let’s Party!

 

CELEBRATORS…

 

Ever had these thoughts/questions about your Spiritual Life

 

(1) If God wants me to be successful… then why is my life the way it is right now? 

(2) I keep struggling with the same sin(s) – why can’t I seem to get past them?


(3) I am so concerned for my friend/family member who does not seem to “Get It!”

(4) I really want the life I am living today to matter in 100 years… How can I do that?

 

These thoughts/questions are probably where many of us have been or are there now… in our Spiritual Walk with Jesus! Many of us have never really thought about/considered what it might look like to UPGRADE our walk with God… to step into the Abundant Life Jesus promised us in John 10:10! The question for you this coming series is this… Are You Interested In An UPGRADE? If you are… then this series is for you! We’re about to take each and every one of you on a journey to evaluate EIGHT Areas of your Spiritual Life… that quite frankly… could probably use an UPGRADE! Do whatever it takes to make it to this Series… I promise you… it won’t let you down!

 

 

Below is a sneak-peak of this week’s message… (5) Let’s Party!

 

LIFE and CHURCH begin to make sense when we get this UPGRADE right… IT'S NOT ABOUT ME!

 

My Vision for ALL Celebrators… To become OBSESSED with KNOWING WHO JESUS IS (And…) KNOWING WHAT HE WANTS FROM YOU!

 

THINK LIKE JESUS!

-By BRINGING those FAR FROM GOD to HIM!

-The Church isn't about Behavior Modification… it's about MEETING JESUS… He brings about the CHANGE!

 

CELEBRATE LIKE JESUS!

-The World OUT-CELEBRATES the Church with what's TEMPORARY! (That’s Wrong!)

-ETERNITY should be far more CELEBRATED Church!

 

UNDERSTAND LIKE JESUS!

-You have the RIGHT of a CHILD… but the RESPONSIBILITY of a SERVANT!

-Your RESPONSIBILITY…? DO what the MASTER says!

 

PURSUE LIKE JESUS!

-Is there a sense of URGENCY in your PURSUIT for the Lost World?

-Luke 14… Go out QUICKLY and get those who are LOST… to the PARTY!

 

UPGRADE #5IT'S NOT ABOUT ME! It's about ME… being a SERVANT… and GOING and TELLING those who are LOST… about the PARTY the Master has planned!

 

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

Below is a sneak-peak of this week’s message… (3) How To Be Successful…

 

God's PLAN for a SUCCESSFUL Life…

1. READ YOUR BIBLE… (And…) DO WHAT IT SAYS! (James 1:22)

 

God Wants You To Be Successful!

-It starts with you OWNING your OWN RELATIONSHIP with Him!

-Pick up the MEAT (Bible) and EAT!

 

SUCCESS Comes From Following…HIS INSTRUCTIONS!

-We all have Direct/Equal Access to God!

(That means… YOU CAN BE AS CLOSE TO GOD AS YOU WANNA BE!)

 

If you don't feel like you're being FED at your Church… Maybe it's because you FORGOT YOUR FORK? (Isaiah 55:11… His Word doesn't return void!)

 

Not Following His INSTRUCTION… Leads To DESTRUCTION!

-It all fell apart for Solomon because he didn't READ HIS BIBLE and DO WHAT IT SAID!

 

Solomon's Ruin… Wealth/Horses/Women

Interestingly enough… we chase the same things today… Money/Material Things/Sex (Note… This Is Not The Equation For Success Like The World Would Want You To Believe!)

 

 

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