Long Walk Home — Play The Long Game — Earl McClellan
You may find yourself in a distant place and unsure of how to get back home. Many times we haven’t lost our way, but rather think we are too far to return.
As we continue the collection “Play the Long Game,” Pastor Earl McClellan talks on a “Long Walk Home,” reminding us that we are never too far away.
Wherever we may find ourselves God’s loving arms are always waiting to run towards us. Once he embraces us and restores us we should never forget that people along our path helped us get back. Let us never grow so comfortable as to not leave our homes and help others that are on their way. God is ridiculously generous toward us. Let us be the same towards others.
Gradual Gains — Play The Long Game — Rich Wilkerson Jr.
Without clear markers it’s impossible to see your progress. The result isn’t always readily apparent because sometimes it’s small. But God is working inch by inch.
In the continuation of the “Play the Long Game” collection, Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. challenges us to appreciate the “Gradual Gains.” It’s the small marks that God is creating daily that come together to tell the ultimate work of his grace.
Slowly but surely, God prunes and sharpens us for more. As his grander plan for our lives is measured in seasons rather than seconds.
A Just Cause — Vision Sunday — Rich Wilkerson Jr.
Know that when it comes to God’s preparation, design, and plan for your life, it is never rushed and never delayed. It is done with excellence. Sometimes, this timing is longer than what you had planned. In a culture that glorifies instant gratification, it can seem painful and counterintuitive to accept.
Kicking off the new series and vision for 2021, “Play the Long Game”, Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. shares “A Just Cause”, which lays out a safety net for enduring the setbacks and hardships in reaching goals and growth throughout life.
Enduring the hardship requires commitment to our Godly calling. Further, when we prepare for the battle, manage the monotony, and continue to clarify our calling, we can be confident that we will not just endure, but be more than conquerors stepping in to our future.
Loud But Little — Endure — Rich Wilkerson Jr.
Our present suffering can push us to wonder, “Are we there yet?” It’s a question full of anxious expectation.
In the encouraging message, “Loud, but Little” from the “Endure” collection of talks, Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. shares that God’s loving response to our question is, “In a little while.”
Jesus tells his followers that the enemy is like a roaring lion seeking to devour our very lives. But while Satan can talk a big game, he doesn’t have the power to overtake us - Jesus has already won the battle for us.
So, let’s not be distracted by the intimidating roars coming from our temporary oppressions, for in a little while, God will bring the restoration we have been seeking.
Humility Looks Good On You — Endure — Manouchka Charles
The world often teaches us to chase after recognition, to be top in our class and chase after fancy titles. But Jesus, the greatest man in history, had none of the above, but still gave his all.
In a convicting installment of the Endure collection, Pastor Manouchka Charles prompts us to check our hearts in the message “Humility Looks Good on You.”
Humility looks the best on us when we decide to firmly put our pride to the side. When we choose to make God our number one, his glory is on full display in us. We tend to look and act differently when we clothe ourselves with humility! We quickly realize that God can move through us when we mark our lives with humbleness. So when deciding on what to wear, let’s dress for success, clothing ourselves in the promises of God with an extra layer of humility!
