Uncomfortable

Change is hard. It can make us feel so uncomfortable that we’d rather stay where we are than seek something better. When we choose comfort over positive change, we miss out on discovering our true potential and how God will provide for us. Stepping out of our comfort zone can be intimidating, but followers of Jesus are given all the resources we need to be difference-makers. In this six-week series, we’ll explore how embracing the uncomfortable allows us to experience the true comfort found in Jesus.

Week 1 Message-  Purpose and Promises

Date- October 7th & 8th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- 2 Peter 1:3-5a and 8-10

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

If we want to live lives that are pleasing to God, we simply need to look to Jesus. He is waiting for us to get to know Him personally and intimately. It’s the best invitation we will ever receive! The more we look to Christ, the stronger we experience His promise of freedom from the sins of the world. We have work to do!

Week 2 Message-  The Heart of The Matter

Date- October 14th & 15th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- 2 Peter 5

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

God calls us into relationship with Him. We are partners in the family business! There are no requirements to join, except believing Jesus died for us on the cross. As we learn and grow in our faith, our character begins to resemble the very One who calls us to Him. We begin to change from the inside out – sometimes without even knowing it.

Week 3 Message-  Knowledge Is Power

Date- October 21st & 22nd, 2017

Key Verse(s)- 2 Peter 6

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

Knowing who God is, and understanding that we are part of His master plan, helps us to gain wisdom. Wisdom grants us the power to control our human response and wait patiently on God’s timing.

Week 4 Message-  Feed Your Focus

Date- October 28th & 29th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- 2 Peter 7

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

When we forget to wait on God’s timing, we insert human will into His heavenly plan. Suddenly, perhaps even innocently, we are subject to the influence of human sin. It takes perseverance and diligence to stay on track.

Week 5 Message-  Practice Compassion

Date- November 4th & 5th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- 2 Peter 7

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

 we grow in wisdom, patience and perseverance, we learn to see the world through God’s eyes. Strangers become brothers and sisters, and the world becomes smaller and more connected. The needs of one become the needs of all.

Week 6 Message-  Love is All You Need

Date- November 11th & 12th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- 2 Peter 7

Speaker- Rusty Coram

 

As followers of Jesus, there is one command we are called to above all else – to love one another. This love is often referred to as ‘agape love’, which is unconditional and without limit. It gives charitably and draws from the very heart of Jesus. It is the love that conquers all.
