Using My Past To Improve My Future

Series Introduction

Our past mistakes can take control of our lives and define us. If we dwell on the past and give up, there is no hope for positive change. But, the good news is that Jesus offers us forgiveness, hope and power – genuine power - to change! We don’t have to be defined by our past. Instead, we can learn from it and move forward with purpose and hope, and in the process, make a real difference in the world.

Some of us grew up experiencing prayer in a more formal, ritualistic way. The truth is, God wants us to stay in regular communication with Him, and that means talking to Him as you would a trusted family member or friend. Jesus gave us an example of how to pray that was meant to help us grow into a more personal dialogue with the One who loves us the most.

Don’t Go It Alone

Week 4 Message • January 26, 2020 • Rusty Coram

We are on an epic journey – one that requires endurance, strength and integrity. Even Jesus (who was perfect) knew He needed to surround himself with a team of committed followers to fulfill His purpose. Being connected with others who are heading in the same direction is a powerful resource in making lasting positive changes.
