SMALL THINGS BIG DIFFERENCE—3 WORDS

Freedom

October 23, 2018

The worldly view of freedom tries to convince us that we must look out for ourselves and no one else.  Freedom is dangerous in the hands of those who don’t know how to use it. 

You can know if your belief is real: you are now my true disciples if you go on abiding in my word.

Listen to this amazing word about God’s wrath in John 3:36: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”

Expect Great Things…

August 17, 2018

The Unstoppable Church in Acts Chapter 2. that church was unstoppable because it was filled with power – power to impact people, power to change lives, power to set the captives free – And it says, ‘the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved’.

This was an infant church, this was a baby church, it was only hours old yet already it was making an incredible impact and people were being saved and lives were being changed. You know I would love to see this church filled to overflowing.

And the growth I want to see is new growth – I’m not interested in attracting Andover hopers and shoppers. I’m not interested in stealing people from other churches – and there’s an awful lot of that goes on.

I want Acts 2:47 to be true of us here at CenterPoint – ‘The Lord added to their number daily– he added to their number daily - those who were being saved’.

Necessary Sin - Pride

August 13, 2018

 “God humbles the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

If you become prideful, God will humble you. In pride, you can either humble yourself or God will do it for you. But if God does it, it’s much more painful., “Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and in due time, He will lift you up.”

This theme winds its way through the Scriptures. Jesus said, “The first shall be last and the last shall be first” and “the truly great among you will humble themselves.” We find this throughout the Scriptures when a king will get prideful and God humbles him. You can either humble yourself or let God do it for you.
