We’re Alive!

You don’t want to miss this weekend at 217church! This weekend concludes our Worship: All or Nothing series. We know that worship is our response to a God who is first pursuing us.

Because God has given us His all in Jesus, we as Christ followers can respond to His pursuit with all WE have! We’ve pursued God on how we worship Him with in our plans, prayers, fears, suffering, and this weekend we will talk about responding to God with our FAITH.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved- Ephesians 2:4-5

 Jesus changes EVERYTHING. We were once dead and now we are ALIVE! When we pursue Him in our plans, He provides; in our prayers,  He answers;  in our fears, He assures; in our suffering, He pulls us through; and, in our faith, He moves mountains! At the end of this passage in Ephesians 2:10 it says 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

So what are we doing with our life in Christ? What does life look like when living out a faith that moves mountains? God has given us everything we need to live out a life with bold faith. Here are 3 evidences of a life lived by faith.

Passion

Jesus led with passion. The apostles preached and prayed with passion. There is excitement in living out God’s calling on our lives! When we meet Jesus we are given the gift of expectancy simply because God is always ready to do something amazing! This leaves us with an energy, a sense of urgency and excitement about what God is doing in our lives and in the lives of others.

Purpose

We know who we belong to, where we are going, and what we are here to do. Every morning we wake up, we know we exist to bring God glory in everything we do. God desires all His children to know Him and receive His gift of salvation through His son and we as Christ followers are here to play a part in that process!

Power

We have the Holy Spirit! The same power that conquered the grave lives in us! If God is for us who can be against us? Once you are alive in Christ and live by the power of the Holy Spirit, nothing can stop you! Sure, life will bring it’s challenges, but a life lived by faith in Jesus is more powerful than any circumstance we could ever be faced with.

We are ALIVE! Do you feel the passion? Do you know your purpose? Are you tapping into the power? Don’t miss this weekend at 217church!
