World-Changing OBEDIENCE

This week's message was the finale in the World-Changers series and it was my personal favorite.  It's a message I believe in very deeply and is at the fundamental core of who I am and why I do what I do.  And that message is this...


I don't know about you, but I want to be blessed by God.  And I believe God wants to bless me even more than I want to blessed.  So finding His blessing and finding His peace and finding His joy isn't a game of hide and seek.  And most of the time, I'd say He wants to give it to me even more than I want to receive it.

But the means by which that blessing will come is OBEDIENCE.  God gives us forks in the road every day and what we do at those forks will determine whether or not we find blessing.

BLESSED Part 2 - The Blessed Test

"He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.  Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?"  (Luke 16:10-11)

Did you know that right now God is testing you? He's testing you to see if you are ready for more blessing. He wants to bless you and bless your life, but He can't/won't unless you pass the test.

What's the test? That's the topic of Part 2 in the BLESSED.  In it, we talk about a verse from Luke 16 which explains why we might not be living with as much blessing as we'd like.

BLESSED Part 1 - The Life That's Blessed

Who wants to be blessed?  Be honest. Raise your hands/mouses. How often do you pray “please God bless my life” or “bless my career” or “bless my family” or just even plain old “BLESS ME!" We all want to be blessed but the problem is that the path to get there is often a mystery.

That's why we started a new series called BLESSED.  The goal is to figure out how to live a life that's full of blessing.
