Restart Your Life (Sermon June 19)

Restart Your Life (Getting Ready for the Rest of Your Life)   (Hebrews 11:23-27)

We see in Hebrews 11:23-27 that Moses made 4 life shaping choices. I want to do the same.

God, with your help:

  1. I refuse to be defined by others. I want to be what God made me to be. (11:24)

Who has God called me to be?
What’s the joy God has for me?
What are the gifts God has given to me?
What’s the task God has assigned me?

  1. I choose short-term pain for long-term gain.  I want to do the right thing, not the    easy thing.  (11:25)
  2. I choose God’s values for my life, not the world’s values.    (11:26)
  3. I choose to live the rest of my life as best as I know how by faith and not by fear.    (11:27)

A Bold Heart – Part 2 (Sermon June 5)

A Bold Heart – Part 2 (1 Samuel 17)

All of us would like to have a bold heart such as David displayed when confronting Goliath. We will have our own Goliath’s. You can’t just turn on boldness like a switch. It is something that is developed.

  1. It’s affected and developed by how we handle everyday challenges. (vv. 34-37)
  2. It’s affected and developed by how we handle opposition and criticism. (vv. 26- 29)
  3. It’s affected and developed by resisting the pressure to conform. (vv. 32-33)
  4. It’s affected and developed by how we handle crisis moments. (vv. 41-45)

Friends, this is not a story about David’s raw courage or David’s skill with the sling or David’s willingness to take a risk. This is a story about God. And the story of your life is not a story about your courage or your skill or your willingness to take a risk. It is, if you will let it be, a story about God and the power that God wants to unleash in your life, as you face the giants before you
