RESILIENCE

2019 – SUNDAY 24 MARCH

RESILIENCE

The generation now emerging have been called by many names – one in particular is so apt. The entitlement generation.
Sadly the church has shaped its preaching to appeal to this current mindset.

THE GRACE MESSAGE
The grace message is the most powerful truth in the Bible.
Grace must be understood and accessed to live the overcoming life.
Grace is simply – Life in Christ.
However grace when presented as freedom from all challenges and trails – and freedom from the consequences of bad choices – and easy entitlement to a great inheritance – is not the true grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

THE FAVOUR GOSPEL
I believe wholeheartedly in the favour of God toward the righteous.
However when God is preached as existing to keep you happy and free from distress – we are preaching a wrong gospel.

THE GIVE UP EASY GENERATION
When you teach health, wealth and happiness – and leave out teaching on the sacrifices and suffering of living in a broken world – you produce people who have no resilience in the tough times.
They simply divorce, change jobs or churches – give in to prevailing mindsets and contemporary values – and move on looking for a new start to a better life.

THE PASSIONATE GENERATION
This generation are smart, articulate and passionate – and looking for a genuine cause.
Millennials are exiting the church because they are bored and not challenged to lay down their lives for a noble God cause.
Churches who live to serve God and extend His Kingdom to reach lost people – are full of people willing and resilient – committed to press through for a genuine move of God in their city and nation.

RESILIENCE IS….
PRESSING THROUGH
TENACITY
DETERMINATION
HOPE & FAITH
FORGIVENESS
SACRIFICE
FASTING AND PRAYER
BOUNCE BACK SPIRIT
