SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (Grapes and Giants 3)

main image

CELEBRATORS… Often times when God makes PROMISES we don’t always realize that there will be PROBLEMS along the way as well! Just as the Israelites discovered with their PROMISED LAND… there would be GRAPES… but there would also be GIANTS! The GOAL in this series is to look a little closer at the PROMISES (Grapes) of POWERPURPOSE… and PROTECTION found within the Book of Ephesians! Our hope/prayer is that you would fully realize ALL that God has PLANNED for you and how to NAVIGATE better through the OBSTACLES (Giants) - so you can realize/reach your full POTENTIAL as a Follower of Jesus! Don’t miss WEEK THREE of this Exciting Series!

 

 

Below is a sneak-peek for this week… (3) The PROMISE of God’s PROTECTION!

 

The Christian Life isn't a PLAYGROUND… it's a BATTLEFIELD… so you need to GET DRESSED every day!

 

The Promise of God's Protection doesn't mean that He will PROTECT you FROM the Battle… it's a Promise that He will PROTECT you IN the Battle!

 

Ephesians 3:12KNOW YOUR ENEMY!

You can't DEFEAT your ENEMY… If you don't DISCERN your ENEMY!

 

Ephesians 3:14-17… There's NO ARMOR that's given to you… TO PROTECT YOU FROM BEHIND! You're supposed TO STAND… and FIGHT!

(Run AT Your Giants… Follower of Jesus!)

 

Don't be worried when Satan's messing with your life… be worried when he's NOWHERE TO BE FOUND! You gain STRENGTH from/in your STRUGGLE!

 

Ephesians 6:10-20… God's Love for YOU is RELENTLESS! There's NOTHING He won't do to PROTECT HIS INVESTMENT (YOU) -- from the Enemy!

 

Ephesians 6:10-20DID YOU GET DRESSED FOR WAR TODAY?

God has made PROVISION… for your PROTECTION!

 

 

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

Just as the Israelites discovered with their PROMISED LAND… there would be GRAPES… but there would also be GIANTS! The GOAL in this series is to look a little closer at the POWER… the PURPOSE… and the PROMISE found within the Book of Ephesians! Our hope/prayer is that you would fully realize ALL that God has PLANNED for you and how to NAVIGATE through the OBSTACLES so you can realize/reach your full POTENTIAL as a Follower of Jesus! Don’t miss WEEK TWO of this Exciting Series!

 

 

Below is a sneak-peek for this week… (2) PURPOSE… The Prequel To Power!

 

God has made the PROMISES and given the BLESSINGS... but I must TAKE POSSESSION of them!

 

Before God CALLED me to DO something special... He CHOSE me to BE something special!

 

WHO YOU ARE is more important than WHAT YOU DO!

With God... Our IDENTITY comes before our ACTIVITY!

 

Before I can FIND MY PURPOSE... I must LOSE MYSELF IN GOD'S PASSION!

 

Before it all FELL APART... God had a PLAN to PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER!

Before I chose to live FOR HIM… He chose to live IN ME!

 

Before God can GIVE YOU the LAND AS YOUR POSSESSION... You’ve got to GIVE HIM YOUR LIFE... AS HIS POSSESSION!

 

 

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