We were honored to have Ps. Chris Hodges with us for our last LEAD Night of 2017. This message focuses on Daniel and how he stood out among all those around him because he "so distinguished himself" with exceptional qualities. Ps. Chris combines this story of Daniel along with the four faces used to describe God in Revelation, and attributes them to 4 main character traits that we as leaders and christians should have!
We are meant to be in the world; it's when the world gets inside of us that there becomes a problem. In this timely message, Ps. Leanne touches on four points that include: Preach the Word, Keep your Head in All Situations, Endure Hardship, and Do the Work of an Evangelist.
In the Bible, Paul says, life is a race. To run a race well, we must get rid of anything that holds us down. Un-forgiveness, regret and negative nostalgia are some of the main things the devil uses to get us to slow down and focus on the wrong things. This message highlights how we can maneuver life by helping us realize what we are holding onto, how to drop them and how move on.
An individual cannot serve two masters - God and mammon (the love of money) at the same time, one must rule over the other. The enemy wants us to associate wealth with evil, he does this to create a heart of poverty, which in-turn affects other areas our lives. This message realigns us to the truth of how money and wealth in general should be viewed - through the lens of God’s word.
Friendship has been clouded by competition. We need to re-evaluate what it looks like to be someone's friend. This message illustrates how one can be a good friend by studying the relationship between Sarai and Hagar.
The Devil is the slanderer, the maligner. He comes to steal, kill and destroy and he does it a lot of the time by making us believe lies about God. The message illustrates the methods the enemy uses to get a hold in our lives.
