You can listen to this message right now by clicking here

Momentum = mass x speed x direction (the art of movement)
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” -Albert Einstein

In What Areas Of Your Life Do You Need Momentum Today?
-Physical  -Financial  -Career  -Relational  -Spiritual

Momentum is all about movement. Most people have lost momentum in the key arenas of life. Easter is a celebration of the holy momentum that Jesus brings to our lives. Whatever you may have lost in your life, it's time to get it back!

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
“The Son of God came for this purpose: to destroy the devil's work.” 1 John 3:8

Momentum Begins When You Do Something NEW.
"... (God) said, “...Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”  Revelation 21:5 (NLT)
"Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life, and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven." 1 Peter 1:3–4 (MSG)

The apostle Peter says several things happen once you give your life to Jesus:

• You open up your life to God and get to know him. 
• You’re given a brand new life, which gives you everything to live for.
• You get a future in heaven. 

“Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 1:30 (MSG).
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”  2 Corinthians 5:17

Momentum That Brings Real Change Begins With God’s POWER, not your WILLPOWER.
“Can... a leopard take away his spots?  Nor can you who are so used to doing evil now start being good.”  Jeremiah 13:23 (LB)
“You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.” Colossians 2:13-14 (NLT)

Maintain Positive Momentum By PUSHING forward, Not By PULLING back. 
"So give yourselves completely to God. Stand against the devil, and the devil will run from you.8 Come near to God, and God will come near to you. You sinners, clean sin out of your lives. You who are trying to follow God and the world at the same time, make your thinking pure."  James 4:7-8 (NCV)
"The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you."  Romans 6:4 (NLT) *see also Romans 6:4, Zechariah 6:4

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
