2017-12-31

(Isaiah 43) But forget the former – it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new, See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

(Proverbs 15:24) --- The way of life winds upward for the wise…

(Matthew 9:17) --- And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. The old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins. That way both the wine and the wineskins are preserved. NLT

Circle #1— Have God Time.

Proverbs 8:34 “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.”

We speak God’s love language.

Psalm 1 --- “Blessed is the man… whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his word he meditates day and night.” He’s like a tree planted by steams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf doesn’t wither. Whatever he does prospers.”

Circle #2 - Seek the Kingdom

(Matthew 6:33 AMPC) But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.

We bring Heaven to earth.

Circle #3 - Build Strong Relationships

(Romans 1:12) Paul says, “I’m eager to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by your faith. In this way, each of us will be a blessing to the others.”

We know WE is better than Me.


Circle #4 - Be Generous with our lives!

We let our generosity define us.

(1 Timothy 6:17-19 NLT) Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.”

#5 Circle - Help Others.

Psalm 41:1-2 --- “God blesses those who are kind to the poor and helpless. He helps them out of their own troubles. He protects them and keeps them alive; he publicly honors them and destroys the power of their enemies.”

(Philemon 1) “I pray that you will be active in sharing your faith, so that you will fully understand every blessing we have in Christ.”

We welcome everybody to our house.
