This is a year- filled w/opportunities- take advantage.

Opportunity

a condition favorable for advancement/success.

God’s favor is available for us so we can accomplish God’s work here on earth.

God is calling us to be Kingdom of God builders.

Taking hold of these opportunities- involve risks

we must learn to reach forward with our faith,

to take a hold of what God is placing before us,

and bring it into the everyday world we live in.

Mtt 6:10 'Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. NASU

P Tony-talked about being commissioned/enabled.

Commission- authorization to perform certain acts.

Enabled- to provide w/means to accomplish those acts.

Prophetic Insights for COTRM

Mission statement

Encounter God, Love People, Share Life

Everything- we do/believe- anchored on God’s Word.

It is also important that we engage God regularly such that we can experience divine Encounters.

Encounter- to come upon someone, engage someone.

God speaks with and desires to interacts w/us.

This is essential for us to fulfill God’s call on our lives.

I desire for my life/COTRM- to be a force for reformation, and

a prophetic voice in our generation.

Acts 13:36 "For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his fathers and underwent decay; NASU

Served- to be subordinate, FWM- under-oarsman.

Typical Roman war ship driven by rows of oarsman (500). These oarsman had to follow the instructions of the Coxswain (picture).

They were under his authority- had to work in unison.

This is a picture of the church / the Coxswain is Jesus and

we are the under-oarsman, following His direction- to move ahead.

I want to challenge us to be proactive in developing spiritual vision, spiritual maturity, and effectiveness in service/building-Kingdom of God.

We need to be asking God to allow us to think His thoughts and

dream His dreams.

Isa 55:6-12

Solomon says this Eccl 3:1 There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven NASU

It is important that as the church we make an effort to understand and respond to the season we are in.

I solicited vision for 2010 from our Ministry Team.
