Project Description

Series Overview

You were created with great intent and purpose by God to be agents of His Kingdom – created to do good works in our families, homes, workplaces, and the world, which so desperately need hope and healing. Yet, so many of us wind up on the couch, kept on the sideline by fear, fatigue, and busyness. And while we suffer from feeling like people without purpose, those who need “Christ in us” the most suffer as we are taken out by the enemy. Join us this Sunday as we kick off our New Year’s series on promises we should make…and keep. This week, we look at three very practical promises that are worthy of making to ourselves – promises that will help get us back in the fight for 2017.

Ever been in one of those relationships where you just can’t figure out what the other party wants from you? You bought flowers…they wanted candy. You thought Broadway tickets…they wanted a cozy night at home. At some point, perhaps in a moment of frustration, you might ask, “What is it you want from me?” Great question when it comes to our human relationships – profound question when applied to our relationship with God. This week, we discover what it is that God really wants from us.

Promises to one another undergird most families. Husbands and wives have promised “to love and to cherish, to have and to hold, until death do us part.” As we honor these underlying promises, they hold our families together. They serve to unify two individuals into one, they comfort children, and they ward off division. Promises spoken and promises kept are at the heart of every family. What about the family of God? What about the local church family? What promises should undergird our unity, comfort our children, witness to our community, and ward off division? This Sunday, in the final chapter of our New Year’s series, we look at promises that we should make to one another – promises that we should not just make, but keep.
