Why should Jesus' sacrifice on the cross be a big deal to us? Why did he need to die? In this Good Friday message, we will hear how the intensity of God’s love for us is revealed through what Jesus endured on the cross.
In life new beginnings often make way for more new beginnings. A seed becomes a tree that creates more seeds. It’s the same with our relationship with Jesus. Going public with our faith creates an opportunity for somebody else to have a new beginning too.
God want's to lead us into tailor made experiences with Him. Every experience in His presence strengthens out faith and increases our confidence in who He is! Jesus led His disciples into private encounters that gave them the boldness to take Him public, and He's doing the same for us!
Small, new beginnings don't always appear to be successful at first glance , they can be hard, they can seem unimportant in the eyes of man, and it's easy to despise them. We can't always see the future with 100% clarity, but God knows that new beginnings are a setup to a significant future.
At the threshold to New Beginnings is the call to obedience. Sometimes obedience doesn’t make sense, it can even seem irrational. But when God calls us to step into something new, we can be sure that He’s up to something significant in our lives. Find out why God uses our obedience to Him, as part of the journey into New Beginnings.
God is excited about the New Beginnings He has planned for us, so much so that He makes a point of giving us glimpses of what’s coming before they arrive. He want’s us to see what’s up ahead, but sometimes we’re not looking. Be encouraged through this message to keep the eyes of your heart open, ready to see what God is already working on for your life.
To be able to access and to move into what God has destined for us we have to walk through the door. A lot of times the door is open for us but we don’t walk through it. Jesus said that he was the open door. He said ‘I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture’.
God never grows weary or tired and He's always ready to do something fresh and new in our lives! 2018 is an incredible opportunity for New Beginnings in families, marriages, careers and ministry. Yesterday is over and God is ready to do something new and powerful in your life! Get ready for a year of New Beginnings!
One thing we’re all sure to deal with in 2018 is money. Getting it, spending it, saving it and making it stretch will be on all of our radars, but God wants to put something on our radar that will take our experience with money to the next level.
God has created us for community and relationships. Busy lives can often leave little time for the people that matter most, but we need quality relationships more than we sometimes realise. These relationships don’t flourish automatically, they need time invested to make them grow. Find out how you can be strengthened by investing into your relationships in 2018.
