SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (SAMSON - 1)
Do you ever go through your life and FEEL INVINCIBLE at times? You feel STRONGER than anything and that you could DEFEAT just about everything? (And then…) Like Out of Nowhere– you get THUMPED! You get BEAT DOWN… by something from your Past/Present… and you’re very quickly reminded of HOW WEAK you really might be? (Well if we’re being honest with ourselves…) The Truth is… even our best intentions can falter when we face TEMPTATIONS and DISTRACTIONS! (If that’s you…) COC WANTS TO HELP! We’re gonna take the next few weeks and walk through the Story of Samson and hopefully teach you a few things about STANDING STRONG against the Forces of Darkness that are just waiting/lurking to TAKE YOU OUT! It’s gonna be a FANTASTIC SERIES for what I believe MANY OF US NEED TO HEAR about STANDING STRONG in the FACE of ADVERSITY! See you soon Celebrators!
Sunday Snapshot… (1) WHEN STRONG MEN ARE WEAK!
DL Moodyonce said that God is Looking for THIS kind of a MAN- one who's wiling to say...
"I WILL BE THAT MAN! If God is looking for a MAN of INTEGRITY… HONOR… COURAGE… and FAITHFULNESS… I WILL BE SUCH A MAN!”
SAMSON was an Incredibly Strong Man with a Dangerously Weak Will!
ThreeSpecificAttitudesthat will always MAKEASTRONGMANWEAK...
1) LUST 2) ENTITLEMENT 3) PRIDE
LUST… is basically when a MANSEESSOMETHINGthat HEDESIRES… (And He Says To Himself…) “I WANT IT… I GOTTA HAVE IT… (So...) I’M GOING TO GET IT!"
If LUST means… "I WANT IT" - then ENTITLEMENTmeans over time you'll justify your LUST and eventually say... "I DESERVE IT!"
PRIDE gives birth from Lust/Entitlement- and it leads you to eventually say... "I CAN HANDLE IT!" (But...) The Truth is... "YOU CAN'T HANDLE ANYTHING!"
See You Sunday Celebrators… (9:00A / 10:45A)
