What an incredible week it has been in my church! God has done amazing things in the past year and a half since Trinity in Louisville became part of our Motor City Church family.

What made Jesus mad? We’ve found that most of Jesus’ moments of righteous anger came from church people, people stuck on religion. It is so easy to get caught up in judging others and their problems.

The History of Palm Sunday
We have been in our series called “Make That Break That” talking about habits that we need to develop and habits that we need to get rid of in order to live a year of unlimited possibilities. I would like to consider a habit today that I call “The Happy Habit”. Proverbs 3:13 AMPC says, “Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is the man who finds skillful and godly Wisdom, and the man who gets understanding [drawing it forth from God's Word and life's experiences].”
I have been doing a series “Make That Break That” about habits that we need to develop and habits that we need to get rid of in order to live with unlimited possibilities. One of the bad habits we should break is being selfish and self-centered, and the best way to do that is to form the habit of being generous.
I’ve been talking about the habits that will help us make this year a year of unlimited possibilities. I’ve written about the habit of putting God first and the habit of speaking right words by changing our thoughts. My purpose in these messages is to highlight habits we need to make and habits we need to break. We will find as we make better habits, like the habit of faith, that we overcome the bad habits like worry and fear.
Super Sunday! A football game consists of four quarters and in this message we hear from four different speakers on four topics from growing in your walk with God to creating a community and how to finish the game well. tune in now, we know that this will bless you, no matter where you are at in your life.
I have been discussing the topic of habits the past few weeks with a focus on spiritual habits - habits that will change you, such as putting God first in your day, in your service, and in your finances, aligning yourself with God’s purpose for your life, and living a life of faith, a habit of faith that overcomes fear and worry.
Pastor Muta Mwenya of Relevant Church was our guest and brought an amazing word! So often, our frustration and anger are a reflection of spiritual health. Maybe your new habits, plans and aspirations for this year felt impossible. But there is good news, God’s purpose is still sure despite our indifferences. Listen to this message to learn how we can reset and walk into the purpose that God has for us!
We’ve been talking about habits the past couple of weeks - putting God first and discovering your purpose. Today, I want to focus on the habit of faith. The Bible says that we are to live by faith. Living by faith in God takes the pressure off of us and allows us to enjoy life in a much greater way.
“Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you” (Romans 12:1-2 MSG).
This will be a year of unlimited possibility. Declare it with me! Right here at the beginning of this new year, let’s consider our habits.We are what we repeatedly do. If you haven’t read my book, Make That, Break That, this would be a great time to get a copy!I desire real change this year, a transformation. In any area of life, if you want to see something new, you’ve got to make a change. The way to live life the way God has for us is challenging; it’s doable but it’s challenging.
I want to declare this is a year of Unlimited Possibilities. When a woman is pregnant, for the first few months, she doesn't look any different. She's the same size, wears the same clothes, and has the same amount of energy. From the outside, there's no sign that she's going to have a baby, and if you just look at her naturally, you could think, "You're not pregnant, there's nothing different about you".
It's been quite the build up: you’ve put out decorations, you’ve planned events, you’ve purchased gifts, and many of you have prepared meals. Let’s take the next few moments to ensure you can enjoy Christmas. One of the first decorations I think about during this season is the nativity set, a miniature manger filled with characters from the first Christmas story. Although they’re intended to paint the picturesque night of Christ’s birth, as a kid I saw them as nothing more than toys.
Jesus is the heartbeat of Christmas. He is the Rhythm of Christmas. In the same way that a drummer keeps the rhythm for a band, God helps to keep the rhythm of our hearts. It can be so easy to just walk through the motion of life or even the holiday season, but when we allow God to lead the rhythm of our life, we find that there is more peace, more joy and more hope. Lean into God and allow him to lead you!
We are called to make a difference. Have you allowed yourself to stop pursuing your purpose? Don’t allow your excuses to stop your calling. You can start TODAY. You can take a step towards God today. Tune in now to learn how.
When we do our part, God does his. As we head into the new year, we are full of vision, faith and expectation for all that God is going to do in 2023. Imagine what we can do.. together!
A heart for God’s kingdom is a heart for the world, for the community and for the house. God has created each of us with our own gifts and abilities and like a puzzle, we all fit together to create God’s kingdom. God is aligning all the pieces, he is fulfilling his purposes - Will you join in and be a part of it?
Pastor Mark Ramsey reminded us that our destiny is connected to our giving. We should remember to be faithful in the little(Luke 16:10 NKJV), be faithful with somebody else's(Luke 16:12 NKJV) and choose who we will serve(Luke 16:13 NKJV).
The journey to generosity is letting go of our way of doing things and doing things God’s way. Learning to trust God with our finances, our jobs, our families is the biggest lesson we can learn. Watch this message to learn how to start your journey to a generous life - An exceedingly, abundantly, over and above life!
When was the last time you told someone your story? Have you stopped to listen to someone else's story recently? We tend to move through life quickly and never stop to really live in the moment.
