Looking forward at Freedom Life! SUN STAND STILL 2011

The holiday season was awesome & now I'm glad it's over & I'm pumped for 2011! It's time to get back to building holy momentum toward everything that God desires to do in & through our church family! Our theme for this year is, "Sun Stand Still." It comes from a crazy passage in the Old Testament that says, "“So the sun stood still and the moon stayed in place until the nation of Israel had defeated its enemies.” Joshua 10:13 This miracle occurred as a result of a daring prayer that was prayed by Joshua, the leader of the Israelites as they were taking the Promised Land. Senior Pastor of Elevation Church, Steven Furtick, picked up on this story & wrote an inspiring book called, "Sun Stand Still." (you can buy it in our bookstore this weekend or click here) This year we are praying big, audacious prayers to a big & powerful God! Many people are hoping for a great 2011. Hope is a desire. It's a powerful emotion. But faith is a demonstration.  Hope wants it to happen.  Faith causes it to happen and acts as if it’s already done.  The Bible teaches what faith is in Hebrews 11:6, it says, “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” This year, as a church, we are taking steps of faith & praying big, audacious prayers! we are believing to secure land for a new location for our church! We are believing for 500 people to follow Jesus! We are believing for $75,000 for our missions initiatives & for favor as we reach our community. We are believing to reach our community with the freedom & life that only Jesus has to offer!

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.

“But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.” Mark 11:25 (NLT)

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
