The Power of Give

The Addition within the act of Subtraction

ForGive

Matthew 18:21-35 • January 27, 2018 • Chad Garrison

Forgiveness is a decision that releases a person from the obligation that resulted when they injured you. Forgiveness for a lot of us can be extremely difficult to walk out because we can be hurt to the point of no return and have so many questions about forgiveness, but Jesus is calling us to forgive because there is power in it. Un-forgivness brings the burden onto us, not them. We need to be willing to exercise forgiveness. With a new year beginning most of us will take the opportunity for a fresh start with new habits, diets, routines, goals, aspirations, and dreams all wrapped up in a resolution to do things better. But have you ever considered that seeing success in these areas might begin with the action of GIVING first? When we Give Way to the power of God in our lives, it changes everything, and we WILL find a way of living that is so fresh and flourishing that it exceeds any resolution we could ever come up with. But we’ve got to be willing to GIVE…

Give Back

2 Corinthians 8:1-3, 5 • January 20, 2018 • Chad Garrison

For many of us, when we hear the term generosity and giving back, we immediately think of giving the church money or tithing. However, God does not need our money. He is the creator of the universe and have given us the resources we need to live. But, his desire for us is to give back to people what we have been so freely given. It is important to see the fact that God is looking at our heart behind giving because if we are reluctant or do not want to give, it shows our true heart because everything in the world is God's. Be encouraged that it is not about giving money or resources just to give it away, but there is purpose behind giving back. With a new year beginning most of us will take the opportunity for a fresh start with new habits, diets, routines, goals, aspirations, and dreams all wrapped up in a resolution to do things better. But have you ever considered that seeing success in these areas might begin with the action of GIVING first?

Give Over

Genesis 2:1-3; Matthew 11:28 • January 13, 2018 • Brenton Hill

What is Sabbath? What does that mean for you? In order for us to understand the power of giving up, we must also give over our time and energy to God through Sabbath and taking a time of rest. Even though we might say that we are too busy or we don't have time, but through obedience which is our way of trusting God in the midst of our circumstances, we will see a heightened awareness of his presence and power in our lives! With a new year beginning most of us will take the opportunity for a fresh start with new habits, diets, routines, goals, aspirations, and dreams all wrapped up in a resolution to do things better. But have you ever considered that seeing success in these areas might begin with the action of GIVING first?

Give Up

1 Peter 5:6-11 • January 6, 2018 • Chad Garrison

In order for us to take steps forward in understanding the Power of Give, the addition within the act of subtraction, we must first understand that we have to give up control over everything and let God take control. There is so much power in recognizing our need to be humble and respond appropriately to what God has in store in order for us to fully understand what his plan for us is. With a new year beginning most of us will take the opportunity for a fresh start with new habits, diets, routines, goals, aspirations, and dreams all wrapped up in a resolution to do things better.
