THE DOOR to MORE

THE DOOR to MORE

God created you for MORE than you could imagine!

Ephesians 3:16-20
16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

  • MORE
    • God created you for MORE than you could imagine!
    • God doesn’t measure you through the lens of your failures or your limitations, rather, he sees you through the SCOPE of your POTENTIAL!

Ephesians 2:10
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Psalm 139:16-18
16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. 17How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! 18 I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!

Ephesians 1:4
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.

    • GOD LOVED YOU BEFORE…
    • MADE FOR MORE… YET I HAVE SO MUCH LESS
      • I KNOW THERE’S A PERSON I’M DESIGNED TO BE, BUT I MISS IT
      • HOW DO I FIND THAT RHYTHM???
  • My SIN shuts the DOOR to my God-given potential
    • IT PULLS US AWAY

Romans 3:23
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

Ephesians 2:4
But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead.

    • IT PULLS US AWAY
    • We are made in HIS IMAGE
      • We are MADE to exist in perfect relationship with HIM
    • When we RUN / IGNORE / REJECT / MOCK God, his ways, his design for life
      • We are running from our own happiness
      • We are establishing LIDS for our lives that are profound

John 14:6
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

John 10:10
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
