MORE… I Want MORE Than I’ve Got Right Now!

CELEBRATORS… What can I say to get you here for the Worship Services this weekend…? Nothing I could say – but something that JESUS COULD DO – which HE DID – just over 2000+ years ago… it started on a CROSS then ended with an EMPTY TOMB! Do whatever you can to BRING SOMEONE WITH YOU to COC – for any one of the three RESURRECTION WEEKEND SERVICESSAT/5P (PATHWAY) – SUN/9A or 11A (MUSD PAC) – Easter Egg Hunts following each service! Just think about it this way… The ONLY thing that may be standing in the way of your Friend or Family Member from being introduced to JESUS is… may be YOU!!! Don’t wait any longer – get out today… INVITE and BRING somebody!!

Below is a sneak-peak into a few of the ideas for MORE

Regardless what you THINK... There is NOTHING on THIS PLANET that could EVER fully SATISFY you with what you WANT… "MORE" of!

We were obviously CREATED for something "MORE!"

And... There's a GOD who wants "MORE" for YOU than what you're experiencing or living now!

We ALL have a PROBLEM - it's called SIN!

And... If your life is falling apart right now - it's not because you followed JESUS there!

When we mess up in life... It's not a MISTAKE - it's SIN!

We're not MISTAKERS - we're SINNERS... and that's a PROBLEM that needs to be fixed!

RELIGION says… “I'm a good person because of the good things I've done!"

CHRISTIANITY says... "I'm a good person ONLY because I've accepted Jesus and accepted the WORK He's done IN ME!"

Why Did Jesus Have To Die?

He DIED for MY SIN - MY PROBLEM!

And now... I can experience "MORE" to this life than I've experienced so far!

Because of the BLOOD from an INNOCENT LAMB (Jesus) that was shed - those who were MARKED FOR DEATH (You and Me) - can now walk away in FREEDOM!

See You THIS WEEKEND… Celebrators!!

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (Hokey Pokey)

HOKEY POKEY… It’s Time To Turn Yourself Around!

CELEBRATORS… You DO NOT want to MISS this coming week’s MESSAGE! I’ve already got a snapshot of it that I’ll share below – but I know that Pastor Mat is gonna BRING IT! “REPENT… The Kingdom Of Heaven Is Near!” REPENTANCE and SOUL-WINNING – all together in one! WOW! 

Below is a sneak-peak into a few of the ideas for HOKEY POKEY

Does your life reflect the reality that “God’s Kingdom Is Near?”

People build THEIR kingdom - Christians build GOD’S kingdom 

Although God loves YOU and ME - His plan is not whole until it's WE! The Gospel is never just about YOU or ME - it's about WE!

Our Problem... It's much easier for us to take what we want FROM the Gospel without doing our part IN the Gospel! Reaching The Lost! 

God is APPEALING therefore we should be IMPLORING those who are far from God to come to Jesus to be saved!

If HIS KINGDOM is about OTHERS - I should always be about KINGDOM BUSINESS!

Matthew 25:18Buried Treasure was only cool for Pirates... NOT FOLLOWERS OF JESUS!

 

See You THIS WEEKEND… Celebrators!!
