Finding Courage for the Unknown Road (Part 2)
The one thing that's certain in life is uncertainty. How can we maneuver through all the twists and turns, bumps and pot holes that life throws at us with confidence and courage? Listen closely today as Pastor Andrew paves the way to a life that embraces the unknown through faith in the One who knows all.
Sunday, January 13, 2019 Title: “Finding the Courage for the Unknown Road” (Part2)
God’s goal for us is Maturity.
Ephesians 4:11-13 CEV "Christ chose some of us to be apostles, prophets, missionaries, pastors, and teachers, so his people would learn to serve and his body would grow strong. This will continue until we are united by our faith and by our understanding of the Son of God. Then we will be mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him."
The maturity God is working towards in those who are His children is Christlikeness in our whole being.
Philippians 2:13 AMPC "[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight."
God works in us, but He doesn’t do the natural work for us.
Martin Luther “I pray as if everything is up to God, but I work as if everything is up to me”.
Prayer doesn’t change things, prayer changes us and we change things”.
2019 SouthGate Motto: “Pray Hard and Work Hard” to reach people with message of Christ for the Glory of God.
You know it’s your time when God connects blessing and growth in your life with spiritual warfare.
Joshua 3: 4 NKJV "Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.”
How do you find the courage to walk the unknown road?
