Never Settle - Be Strong and Courageous
Our church is embarking on a major renovation to fit the church we are today, and the church we want to be tomorrow. Endeavor is our collective commitment to faith, generosity, and impact. Endeavor will help carry us into our next season as a church!
Endeavor - a purposeful or industrious undertaking (especially one that requires effort or boldness)
New seasons require letting go of old seasons.
In order to become the church God is calling us to be, some things will shift and change. Change is always the companion of progress in life.
This is our time to do something great – together.
God commands Joshua three times to “be strong and courageous.”
You have to be strong and courageous in order to move into your best life. You can choose your posture: weak and fearful – or – strong and courageous.
It takes courage to try and try again. It takes courage to stand up for your convictions, to do the right thing when the wrong thing is easier. It takes courage to change and to stay the course.
It’s time for our church to decide what kind of church we want to be. Strong and courageous? Or weak and fearful?
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind.
Through Christ, we have a spirit of faith, of power, love and a sound mind. We have everything we need to be strong and courageous!
Matthew 25:25 'And I was afraid, and went away and hid your talent in the ground; see, you have what is yours.'
This man was given a talent. He was afraid, so he hid it and got no return on his investment. What would happen if we hid our God-given talents? What would the world miss out on? What would WE miss out on? Work with what God has given you!
This season is our church’s chance to do something big for the Kingdom of God. It’s not about any one person. It’s not about you or your personality. It’s about the glory of God, the will of God, and the people who need what you have to give!
Be strong. Be courageous. And begin a new chapter in your life!
