This Sunday, we wrap up our series, Uncommon Grit, where we have learned from the life of Joseph what deep character and deep faith look like in action. We have one more test to watch Joseph take, and that is the test of what do you do when you finally get what you deserve. I truly believe this is the crux moment of Joseph’s entire life and what actually earned him the respect and admiration of each of us. To get and keep what Joseph had, we must follow his example.
This Sunday, I’m looking forward to continuing our Uncommon Grit series with you. We’ve been looking at the life of Joseph in the book of Genesis, and we pick up our story this weekend while Joseph is… still in jail! But, finally his moment comes, and he is released- not only released but promoted to second in command over all of Egypt. As we unpack this story, I want us to look at what makes Jospeh’s grit truly uncommon.
This Sunday, we follow Joseph’s saga of Grittiness into his undeserved prison stint. Once again, he will not disappoint us with his Uncommon Grit as he allows God to work through him in even this circumstance. A question that comes to mind is, “What motivates Joseph?” Why does he continue to fight for good even in these worst of situations? The answers will help us learn to live our lives with the Uncommon Grit Joseph has displayed and will lead us to living lives blessed by God with an incredible impact on our worlds.
Sunday, we continue our series called Uncommon Grit, where we are learning how to have deep character and deep faith from one of the grittiest young men in the Bible. The world threw everything it had at him, but his faith in God and God’s way of living life never seemed to falter a bit. This week, we talk about one of the greatest enemies of deep character and deep faith…something that can easily lead to our greatest regrets and shame.
We start a brand new series called “Uncommon Grit” where we’ll look at the life of Old Testament Joseph. Grit has become a popular word to denote strength of character and strength of will, both of which Joseph had in spades. Joseph’s life wasn’t easy and certainly wasn’t fair; yet, he lived out what it meant to stand for what you believe and to live it out faithfully, no matter the situations in his life. In a world where we have no control over our circumstances, Joseph teaches us so much about how we do have complete control of how we respond.
This Sunday, we wrap up our series called The Art of Racing in the Rain. It’s been a great series to help us look at God’s plan for us to live life well even in the midst of the craziness in our world over which we have no power. This week, I want us to talk about an attitude of the heart that is so essential to living life this way that it has been adopted all over our world. Who knew it came from God? That shouldn’t be surprising at all!
Sunday, we continue our series, The Art of Racing in the Rain, where we are trying to learn the skills necessary to win the race of life even when life is not a bed of roses. This week, we will find the answer to this great and important question, “How do you know what you don’t know?” This is so key because, more than likely, it’s the stuff you don’t know that is going to keep you from the life God dreamed up for you!
This Sunday, we continue the series we started last week called “The Art Of Racing In The Rain.” We learned that we need a God-strategy for how to win the race of life and how that strategy is even more important when life is raining down on you. This week, we take it a step further and start talking about some of the specific components of how to win. We will talk about what it means to use your brakes!
