SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (LIP SERVICE - 1)

main image

The American Church has formed a Type of Christianity where SHARING YOUR FAITH seems to be OPTIONAL! Was it optional for Jesus to Share His Faith? Was it optional for the Disciples to Share Their Faith? It is a Spiritual Impossibility for someone to be a Christian and NOT… TALK ABOUT JESUS CHRIST! Don’t miss this special ‘One Hit Wonder’ this week at COC called LIP SERVICE! Pastor Mat’s gonna SHARE with us some easy/simple ways that we can SHARE The Gospel!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1 – Lip Service)

 

Of ALL the PROBLEMS in the World... The BIGGEST PROBLEM is PEOPLE HAVE NOT MET JESUS!

 

It’s IMPOSSIBLE to FOLLOW JESUS and NOT CARE about the PEOPLE that JESUS CARES ABOUT!

 

Genuine SPIRITUAL MATURITY is when we ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY for REACHING THE LOST!

 

The SOLE RESPONSIBILITY of a CHRISTIAN is to GO and MAKE other CHRISTIANS... EVERYWHERE and ALL THE TIME!

 

We will NEVER come across ANY INDIVIDUAL who is NOT the OBJECT of GOD'S GREATEST LOVE and CONCERN!

 

“If only we could SEE the VALUE of ONE SOUL as GOD DOES!" (George Verwer)

Whether you’re SINGLEDIVORCED or HAPPILY MARRIED… this New Series is for YOU! Our goal is to help you explore the challenges and assumptions that are associated with DATING in the 21st Century! We want to help you avoid the difficulties that you may be experiencing in your own Dating Life and/or better prepare you with Equipping Your Kids when it comes to their Dating Lives in the future! Better yet… We want to help you avoid the PAIN you’ll experience LATER because of the DECISIONS you might be making NOW! Make plans to continue joining us this Last Week as we discover a little more about what JESUS thinks about LOVE/SEX and DATING…

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (4 – If I Were You…)

 

PROMISES are not a substitute for PREPARATION!

 

When you become ACCOUNTABLE to something you are INCAPABLE of doing... you become MISERABLE!

 

PROMISES don't matter if a person hasn't PREPARED! You've got to PREPARE before you PROMISE!

 

A "PRUDENT" Person pays attention not to Commitments or Promises... they pay attention to PAST Ways/Patterns and Trends!

 

WORDS are MEANING-LESS! PROMISES are PURPOSE-LESS! The PAST is always a better indicator than a PROMISE!

 

If you are COMMITTED to BECOMING the PERSON you are LOOKING FOR is LOOKING FOR... then COMMIT NOW to BECOMING someone who can KEEP their COMMITMENTS LATER!
