Say the Blessing
A few years ago we learned a truth about gratitude that is universal: Gratitude doesn't seem like gratitude until there is an expression or proclamation of it. In other words, you will not appear to BE grateful until you SAY you are grateful. While true, this practice is entry level gratitude. There are two additional "levels" of gratitude in which we can and should participate. So, in this week leading to Thanksgiving, if you are interested in some graduate level gratitude then you should join us at 9:30 for the third and final message in the series Reclaimed
Projection is the process of attributing our thoughts or beliefs onto another. We assume that our opinion is their opinion. We can do this regarding our relationship with God. We can assume wrongly in both directions. We can think too highly or too lowly of ourselves and assume that God thinks the same. Our seat at God's table reverses our projection as it teaches us to see ourselves, and others, as He sees.
What if there was a practice that could improve nearly every part of your life? It improves relationships, overall health and happiness, academics for children, and saves you money. If there was such a thing, would you be interested to have it? You are in luck, because today at Fusion City Church, we are beginning a new series all about that very practice, and it has not been too long ago in our American history that it was regular part of most families. It's time for us to return. Join us for week one of our new series: Reclaimed
Grieving the Holy Spirit
Receiving an incredible gift should illicit a powerful and positive response from the one who receives it. How odd would it be if the opposite were true and the response to a great gift was minimal and even offensive to the giver? That seems illogical and wrong, doesn't it? What would you do if you were the one who gave the gift? What would you do if you were the one who is breaking the heart of the giver because of your response to the gift?
The Power of the Holy Spirit
Would you say that your life is characterized as "powerful?" If not, is the opposite of powerful not powerless? Are those the only two options? What impact would it have on your life to learn that you have access to remarkable power and the only thing that limits it is some of your current perspectives and behaviors? Would you be willing to make some changes if that were the case? Well, it is true and we'll be unpacking why it is true and how to live in relationship to that kind of power today in week 3 of our series Holy Ghost.
The Help of the Holy Spirit
In John's Gospel Jesus makes a seemingly ridiculous statement to His closest followers when He said, "It is better for you that I go away..." What could be better than having Jesus in the flesh with you and around you all day, every day? What is even more astounding is that it wasn't just true for the 12 disciples, it's also true for us. It is better FOR US that Jesus went away. Today, we'll unpack why what Jesus said is true, and what we have today that is better than Jesus with us in the flesh.
