Be Renewed

OPEN: As strange as this may sound, LIFE has a way of sucking the LIFE out of us.

If you have faced any one (or more) of these situations in the past twelve months, it is quite possible (even likely) that you need to be renewed:

 Lost a loved one in the past 12 months



 Dealt with a recurring, nagging injury or illness

 Got fired from a job

 Got demoted

 Got promoted (but feel

overwhelmed)

 Had a setback in your finances

 Became dissatisfied with your

spiritual life

 Went through a divorce

 Started a new company

 Got a bad job review

 You’ve been unable to sleep at night

 You were betrayed by a close friend

 Felt withdrawn or isolated

 Been lied about and made fun of

 Had feelings of hopelessness about

the future

 You and your boyfriend (or girlfriend)

broke things off

 Have creditors calling left and right

 Have been unemployed for a lengthy

period of time

 Sustained problems with stress

 You and your spouse separated

 You can’t seem to find the right

person to date

 One of your kids had a severe injury

or sickness

 Bills have piled up with no clue how

you’re going to pay them

 Feeling low in energy, as if your

strength is zapped

 Your life has had so much pain that

you don’t even want to talk about it

 Eating issues (like anorexia, bulimia,

binging or purging)

 Just lacking the joy and enthusiasm

about life that you once had

If any (or several ) of these apply to you, then I am here today, not in my own power, but in the Power of God to offer you hope.

TITLE: Two weeks ago we started a new series. The first week was “Be the Bigger Person”, last week was “Be Thankful”, but today, I believe I am bringing the most important message of this series. Today’s message is entitled:

“Be Renewed”

EXPLAIN HOW TODAY’S SERVICE

WILL BE DIFFERENT

TEXT: I want us to look at two KEY scriptures today; then ask the power and presence of God to be present in this place today!

And my speech and my preaching were

not with persuasive words of human

wisdom, but in demonstration of the

Spirit and of power 1 Corinthians 2:4

The Message Bible says it this way ( 1 cor. 2:4):

I was unsure of how to go about this,

and felt totally inadequate—I was

scared to death, if you want the truth of

it—and so nothing I said could have

impressed you or anyone else. But the

Message came through anyway. God’s

Spirit and God’s power did it, which

made it clear that your life of faith is a

response to God’s power, not to some

fancy mental or emotional footwork by

me or anyone else.

In other words, if we are going to be renewed, it MUST be God that does it!!!
