Take Courage | Week 2

Don't do life alone.
You are seen. You are heard.
You are more loved and valued than you can imagine.
You matter more than you know.
There is a place for you.
Take Courage.

A move of the Spirit is happening in our church.
March 4-18 we're dedicating all services at both campuses to learning, inspiring, battling, praying, seeking, and surrendering to ignite a breakthrough - a revival - for the Next Generation.

In the Name of Jesus, we rebuke the evil one and cancel his plans to kill, steal, and destroy the lives of the next generation! We declare that he will not cheat them out of the rich and satisfying life that you purposed for them! We believe that you will restore to them the joy of your salvation!

There's a place for you in this world.
There's a role for you in this revolution.
Take Courage.

Message Notes

About that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?”

Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me. But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.

What sorrow awaits the world, because it tempts people to sin. Temptations are inevitable, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting…Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones; for I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father.”

Matthew 18:1-7, 10

 

Where do the darkness and despair come from?

How do we “welcome” the children?

In the family

Outside the family

Break the cocoon syndrome

You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
I Peter 2:9
