Prepare For Impact – Part 5: Live Wisely

We know that how we live makes more of an impression and impact than what we say. How do we avoid the mine fields that are part of life and become an example of what it means to live like no one else? Ephesians 5:15-21; Proverbs 11:12

Prepare For Impact – Part 4: Be Generous

One of the practical demonstrations of ultimate faith in God is found in our ability to be generous. We not only benefit others when we are generous, but we also touch the heart of God as well. 2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Prepare for Impact – Part 1: Stand Firm

“Unless you stand for something you will fall for everything,” is a well-known adage. How do we stand firm when it seems the entire world is on a mission to discredit faith? Matthew 7:24-27; Colossians 2:8-10

Part 3: Power-Play

Behind our acts of worship is the acknowledgment of power, something greater that deserves our reverence. Whoever we bow down to, must be who we believe has ultimate authority. Matthew 4:8-11

Part 2: The Presumption Trap

Temptations come with certain presumptions that can appear to be rational at first, but dig a little deeper, and the potential for greater damage is quickly exposed. Matthew 4:5-7

Part 1: I Need This

Temptations come in mamy forms, but the most lethal are the ones that come in the guise of fulfilling a legitimate need. Matthew 4:1-4

Part 7: The House that Jesus Built

The church, as an institution, has been the object of attack, both from the outside world and within its very ranks for centuries. Why should believers care about the way in which “the church’ is treated and portrayed? Matthew 5:13-16; Acts 20:28-31; 1 Corinthians 3:10-11; 1 Peter 2:9-12

Part 6: The Greater Blessing

We all know what happens when we close our minds. We stop growing and the older we get; the bleaker life becomes. the same is true when we close our hearts, we miss out on experienceing the greater blessings God has in store for us. Proverbs 18:13, 15; Luke 16:10-12; Matthew 13:14-15; 2 Timothy 3:1-5

Part 5: Beyond My Front Door

Relationships can be tricky, especially when tribalism is governing the rules of engagement. But for God, relationships are more than just finding others like us. John 13:34-35; Phillippians 2:3-5; 1 John 3:17-18; Galatians 6:2-3

Part 4: My Personal Temple

Personal well-being has become a major cultural focus of late, especially after the fallout of a drawn-out pandemic. But God has always been concerned about our personal overall health, long before it became popular. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 12:1-2; Psalm 139:13-14; Ephesians 2:9-10
