    Sermon Highlights

    When you see Him, you're going to long for Him.

    The Holy Spirit and the church are going to come into line with one another.

    An unbelieving world will believe.

    Shame-based religion will break off the church.

    God is going to use great PRESENCE and PRESSURE that will produce great PRAYER.

    God wants to take us on a guided tour of the Holy Spirit.

    The Holy Spirit wants more of your attention.

    The anointing of the spirit of prayer is falling on the church.

    When in the Word, take phrases that jump off the page and whisper them back to Him.

    The Holy Spirit gets stirred when we read the Word.

    Week Three - All Fall Down

    Week Three - All Fall Down

    Stronger is a brand new series that will look at the book of Daniel as the prototype for how to live our lives in the middle of deeply influenced culture.

    In week three, Pastor Lee Cummings brings a powerful word from Daniel 3. We learn about where the source of our boldness and strength comes from: Jesus.

    Focus Scripture // Daniel 3:1-18
    “King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits and its breadth six cubits. He set it up on the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. 2 Then King Nebuchadnezzar sent to gather the satraps, the prefects, and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the justices, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces to come to the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up. 3 Then the satraps, the prefects, and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the justices, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces gathered for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up. And they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. 4 And the herald proclaimed aloud, “You are commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages, 5 that when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, you are to fall down and worship the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6 And whoever does not fall down and worship shall immediately be cast into a burning fiery furnace.” 7 Therefore, as soon as all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, all the peoples, nations, and languages fell down and worshiped the golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
    8 Therefore at that time certain Chaldeans came forward and maliciously accused the Jews. 9 They declared to King Nebuchadnezzar, “O king, live forever! 10 You, O king, have made a decree, that every man who hears the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, shall fall down and worship the golden image. 11 And whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast into a burning fiery furnace. 12 There are certain Jews whom you have appointed over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These men, O king, pay no attention to you; they do not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”
    13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in furious rage commanded that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego be brought. So they brought these men before the king. 14 Nebuchadnezzar answered and said to them, “Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the golden image that I have set up? 15 Now if you are ready when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, to fall down and worship the image that I have made, well and good. But if you do not worship, you shall immediately be cast into a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you out of my hands?”
    16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. 18 But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”

    Sermon Highlights

    Babylon is not just a historical empire, but a counterfeit kingdom.

    Nebuchadnezzar's image is the epitome of this counterfeit kingdom.

    The spirit of Babylon wants to dominate every sphere of culture.

    Is the conviction in you stronger than the culture around you?

    Boldness and strength come from the presence of Jesus.

    God does everything with great intention.

    The fires of trials are temporary. Eternity is worth it.

    Check out this new sermon from Pastor David Perkins called Worthy Of It All from Seek!

    Sermon Highlights

    What does it look like to give Jesus your all in this season?

    Go before the Father like a child.

    When you encounter Jesus, it doesn't give you an excuse to back off - it's your license for you to surrender it all to Him.

    What would it look like if you came before the Lord and gave it all to Him?

    You are invited to MORE.

    There's gonna be a moment where you're be faced with a choice.

    I don't follow Jesus to get the good life - I follow Jesus to get Jesus.

    If you give it all, you'll never regret giving it all.

    You get new life when you go to the Father.

    Week Two - Poised for Influence

    Week Two - Poised for Influence

    Stronger is a brand new series that will look at the book of Daniel as the prototype for how to live our lives in the middle of deeply influenced culture.

    In week two of Stronger, Pastor Lee Cummings focuses on Daniel 2 and reveals five ways that you can become a Kingdom influencer.

    Focus Scripture // Daniel 2:1-10 (ESV)
    “In the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; his spirit was troubled, and his sleep left him. 2 Then the king commanded that the magicians, the enchanters, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans be summoned to tell the king his dreams. So they came in and stood before the king. 3 And the king said to them, “I had a dream, and my spirit is troubled to know the dream.” 4 Then the Chaldeans said to the king in Aramaic,[a] “O king, live forever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation.” 5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, “The word from me is firm: if you do not make known to me the dream and its interpretation, you shall be torn limb from limb, and your houses shall be laid in ruins. 6 But if you show the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts and rewards and great honor. Therefore show me the dream and its interpretation.” 7 They answered a second time and said, “Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will show its interpretation.” 8 The king answered and said, “I know with certainty that you are trying to gain time, because you see that the word from me is firm— 9 if you do not make the dream known to me, there is but one sentence for you. You have agreed to speak lying and corrupt words before me till the times change. Therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can show me its interpretation.” 10 The Chaldeans answered the king and said, “There is not a man on earth who can meet the king's demand, for no great and powerful king has asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or Chaldean.”

    Sermon Highlights

    Influence is the capacity or power to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior, opinions of others.

    How to become a Kingdom influencer:

    Build a history with God before you need it.

    Train in obscurity so you can reign in adversity.

    Embrace the place you've been assigned.

    Who are you called to bring light to?

    See divine opportunity where others see dead ends.

    Walking with people during the most difficult seasons of their lives is often where we can make the biggest difference.

    Reframe the narrative.

    Shoot straight and point it back to God.

    Guard your influences.

    You're only as strong as what/who you allow to influence you.

    Don't allow yourself to become under the influence by the things of this world.

    Genesis 22:1-19 (ESV)
    “After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 2 He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” 3 So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. 4 On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. 5 Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy[a] will go over there and worship and come again to
    you.” 6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both of them together. 7 And Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” 8 Abraham said, “God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they went both of them together. 9 When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. 11 But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 12 He said, “Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” 13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called the name of that place, “The Lord will provide”;[b] as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided.” 15 And the angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven 16 and said, “By myself I have sworn, declares the Lord, because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and as
    Radiant Church | Lee Cummings the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of his[d] enemies, 18 and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” 19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beersheba. And Abraham lived at Beersheba.”

    James 2:23 (ESV)
    “23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God.”

    Matthew 7:7-11 (ESV)
    “7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”
