Rage Against Beige reflects on the crucification of mediocrity. God hates sin but loves the sinner. "Something happens after people get saved, we go from painting the town red to being "beige", we come into agreement with the spirit of boring-old-religion". As a matter of fact we are all supposed to be extraordinarily-interesting people of God who attract the world to us by what we carry, not drive them away with our beige-ness. Being a Christian isn't blowing out that unique spark God has put in each of us, it is fanning that spark until its a raging inferno!
We as being part of a Church must always be ready to bring Heaven to Earth. No matter what happens to the walls of the church we must be steadfast and secure in our beliefs. We must strengthen our hearts and minds with the Word of God against the attacks of the enemy and when it is our time we can make it rain on the enemy's parade! Volunteer in Church and make yourself ready to be on the front lines of the battle, your purpose is unlocked when you serve.
Every great team has one. Every great player has been on one. Found in a small strip of no man's land between the fields of endevour and the Grandstand of compromise lies THE BENCH. It's the place for recovery, reinvention and the rookie -- waiting for his number to be called. It's the bit between seasons and it's the bit that says everything about the real you. This message illuminates what Pastor Dave thinks is the greatest mistake of his ministry life -- the absence of THE BENCH. From now on, THE BENCH IS BACK IN TOWN.
Captivating Contours outlines the story of Abraham, the 'Father of the Faith' as he appoints one of his men to find a wife for his son, Isaac. The story that unfolds is an old testament foreshadowing for the Helper, the Holy Spirit and the Bride of Christ. The woman the man finds, Rachel, possesses the character that we as the Bride of Christ must aspire toward. The message also illustrates the power in names and the meanings behind them.
We are a direct result of what we either allow or don’t allow into our life. In this message, Dr. Matt peels back the curtain on things we put up with day in and day out.
The church was meant to empower us to live a purpose-filled life. We weren't made to be ordinary, signs and wonders were meant to follow us. We are called to live by faith (not by sight). Jesus calls us to overcome, to do the impossible!
