The Power of Same – Week 4 #Motion

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 8.49.27 PM

Series Memory Verse: Mark 12:30, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Bible Story: A Test in the Desert, Matthew 4:1-11
Main Point: I can love Jesus with my attitude.

In our fourth week of The Power of Same, we learned how our attitudes and feelings can swing wildly in different directions but Jesus can be the constant source that keeps life in perspective. Check out the video from this week:

Just like an astronaut on a space walk, our emotions can be unsteady footing. But if we center our lives on Jesus, he can be our tether that keeps us connected to what’s most important.

This week as a family, talk about different emotions. Validate that emotions are a part of life. But reinforce that no matter what we’re feeling, we are to praise God with our life, and that often means sacrificing what we’re feeling in order to give God praise. To learn to do that shows true maturity and a Christ-follower who’s ready to take on whatever life throws at them because they’re connected to the Unchanging God!


The Power of Same – Week 3 #Motion

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 8.49.27 PM

Series Memory Verse: Mark 12:30, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Bible Story: Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 4:23-7:29
Main Point: I can love Jesus by being organized.

During The Power of Same we’ve been learning how committing to the same, good habits can help us love God better. Check out our third message from AstroHost:

Scientists organize the stars into groups called constellations. That organization powers discovery. Being organized often seems to be a factor of personality type. Even looking at your kids, you can see which ones are more prone to keeping their room clean and which ones you need to monitor more closely. But regardless of which camp you fall in, you have experienced that disorganization often leads to distraction. And when we’re distracted, living out God’s calling on our life is more difficult. We don’t all need to become neat freaks but there is a certain amount of organization that helps us lead Godly lives.

Talk with your family this week about their natural tendencies – either toward organization or away from it - and about ways that they could organize their lives and help improve their walk with God.


The Power of Same – Week 2 #Motion

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 8.49.27 PM

Series Memory Verse: Mark 12:30, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Bible Story: Through the Roof, Luke 5:17-26
Main Point: I can love Jesus in everything I do.

During our second week of The Power of Same, we learned the importance of having our lives orbit around Jesus. Take a look.

Our lives orbit around something, intentionally or not. Many things vie for our attention but only Jesus is worthy of our worship. It’s important to evaluate the patterns and habits in our lives to ensure that they reflect what we want to orbit. Initiate discussion with your family about ways you can change your patterns this year, and come back next week for the third installment of The Power of Same!


The Power of Same – Week 1 #Motion

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 8.49.27 PM

Series Memory Verse: Mark 12:30, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Bible Story: A Baby and a Bush, Exodus 1:8-14, 22; 2:1-15, 3:1-15
Main Point: Jesus is power and love

This week we kicked off 2015 with a brand new series called The Power of Same. We’re going to be talking about good habits and how there is power in doing the same things.

We’ll hear each week from AstroHost, as he tells us of the mysteries of space. Check out Episode 1:

We looked at the life of Moses and how God demonstrated both His power and love to the Israelites by taking care of them and, eventually, setting them free. It’s that same power and love that we put our faith in today.

Talk with your family about habits that you have and which ones you can add/improve in this new year. Also, visit http://beginagainchallenge.com/ to participate with the rest of the church in the Begin Again Challenge!
