Sermons about Potential
Ephesians 5:15-17 (NIV) If we are going to live lives of significance we need to ... 1. Be intentional about how we live ~ We don't have the necessary safeguards in place. ~ We're good at deceiving ourselves 2. Learn to ask the question what's the WISE thing to do. Q1 Is there anything wrong with it? Q2 How close can I get to the line between right and wrong without actually doing something wrong? ~ How close can I get to the sin without actually sinning. Q3 How far over the line can I go without experiencing consequences? Q4 How did I get myself in this mess? 3. Maximize our God given potential 4. Pursue God's will. Significance comes from a life centered in God and His will.
Apostle Bob shares about knowing where we come from, and who we are, and where we are going. It's not who you think you are that is holding you back, it's who you think you are not that keeps holding you back.
This sermon looks at the power, poison and potential that is the tongue.
God created and it was good. God created people and it was great. As we follow Jesus grow and go we need to do what we were created to do, make disciple makers live in community with others. We celebrate, grow, dig deep and engage. This opens our eyes and to the focused impact we can have in our community. The Holy Spirit fuels the creativity and opens our eyes to the kingdom community that is all around us. Pain comes with gain, but what we once could not see now become clear. God will bless us along the way.
Potential is a very powerful thing. It is safe to say that most people never reach their full potential because they cannot pass the tests. To reach our potential may require that we go through a series of tests to prepare us for what God is going to do in the future. To reach our potential, like Joseph, we simply must be obedient and grow where God wants us to grow.
Pastor David speaks of Jesus example of the mustard seed faith as the way God wants our faith to grow based on His Word.
This weekend Ashwin Ramani speaks to us about how the power of encouragement can change lives. Encouraging people see the potential in people and help them see it for themselves. Who has God placed in your life that you can be an encouragement to?
