2019-01-27 Message- Breaking Free

By Sermons

Life doesn’t just happen, it is the result of the choices we make every day

  • Emily Dickinson
  • If I can stop one heart from breaking,
  • I shall not live in vain;
  • If I can ease one life the aching,
  • Or cool one pain,
  • Or help one fainting robin.
  • Unto his nest again,
  • I shall not live in vain.

What’s your life’s purpose, your mission?

This week we will learn from the salmon who start and end their mission at home. More instinct and nature helps them fulfill their purpose. But we’ll also ask Carrion Crows in the Japanese city of Sendai how they have creatively learned to use new information far from their home turf to eat, using passing traffic to crack nuts for them.

Kids need a purpose in their life. Adults do, too. And so do churches.

We want to glorify God and enjoy God forever. This requires that we practice “Forgetting what lies behind… (and) press on to what lies ahead in Christ Jesus.”

Our community activities, our ministries, must fulfill our mission, the the purpose of our ministry.

What’s your mission? We must listen to Jesus.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free.”

How will we help jesus fulfill His mission in Cape May?

Let’s listen. Let’s learn. Let’s Lead.
