What if we prayed differently? What if we no longer assumed that God wants us to live a safe life? What if we actually believed that God wanted to use our gifts in ways that we have never been used before? What if we believed he wanted to deal with things in us that we weren’t willing to deal with before? What if we asked him to show us where to go even if we didn’t know where that was? What if we prayed dangerous prayers? What would happen? Come and find out.
The apostle Paul’s circumstances were tough when he wrote the book of Philippians. Yet somehow he had an ability to reframe every situation and see the good that could come out of it. His wise words show us how it is possible to experience REAL joy in all circumstances. As we study the book of Philippians, we’ll take a look at some of the things we chase after to find happiness... only to find emptiness. We'll learn how to stop worrying and instead trust in what God has planned for us.
Along the way, we'll discover the secret to... JOY.
Jesus was dead. You could see it on the faces of his followers. Mary wore the face of uncertainty. The disciples wore the face of fear. Thomas wore the face of doubt. Peter wore the face of failure. But then something happened: They came face to face with the resurrected Jesus, and their faces changed. Jesus wants to do the same for you. Will you come face to face with Him this Easter?
Here’s the reality: We all have a tendency to drift away from the life God created us to live, so we need to become ROOTED in our Creator. God roots us so that He can then use us in a big way. We are to be RELEASED to the adventure of following Him! Explore how to become more like Jesus, and step into a life that you never knew existed.
