Search Me

Dangerous Prayers • October 13, 2019 • Matt Paddack

INTRODUCTION: Prayer has the potential to radically transform our lives, but too often we choose to pray safe prayers. We scratch our heads wondering why nothing in our lives are changing even though we are praying. Doesn’t God hear us? During this sermon series, we will discover how to courageously pray in a dangerous way that requires us to continually invite God into our lives. MAIN POINT: Becoming all that God created me to be requires continually inviting Him to “search me”. KEY VERSE: “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”– Psalm 139:23-24 CHALLENGE QUESTION: When was the last time you asked God to “search me”? ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: Jeremiah 17:9 (NLT)

Emptiness

Didn't See It Coming • September 29, 2019 • Ronnie Rothe

SUMMARY So many people are surprised by something that generation after generation of successful people encounter: success is emptier than they ever dreamed. Even when all your dreams come true, you may feel grateful. But feeling grateful doesn’t leave you full. Only God can produce the fullness in our lives that we are seeking. MAIN POINT There’s no end to the emptiness of making you the center of your life. KEY VERSE “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.” – Jeremiah 2:13 CHALLENGE QUESTION (1) Are you the center of your life? (2) What step can you take today to make Jesus the center of it all? ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURE REFERENCES Ecclesiastes 1:2,8, Jeremiah 2:13, Matthew 6:33-34, Matthew 16:25
