Luke 9:23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
Welcome to our worship celebration! Today is the last of our 5 Change Sundays. We are very happy that you came. You have seen some good changes in your life so far. And we are excited to see some more wonderful things that will happen in your life as you continue to seek the Lord.
As a loving God and heavenly Father, the Lord wants the very best for you! But he cannot give you some good things without removing some bad things in your life. Those bad things hinder you from receiving the new, bigger, and better things that God wants to give to you. So you will do well to cooperate with God and allow God to re-arrange your life, to the extent that some changes are needed. You will be happy as you let go and let God be God in your life.
Today, we want to talk about making some much-needed lifestyle adjustments. We will be inspired to hear about the many benefits of following the Lord. We will see the many breakthroughs that come as we pursue a changed life under God’s leadership. And we will be strengthened as we watch testimonies of people whose lives have been changed by God!
You can overcome the struggles you have in life! The Lord will help you. As you change, you will experience greater happiness. As you leave behind the attitudes, habits, and ways that are not good and godly, you will be set free to experience better things. And as you begin to develop good values, habits, and priorities, your life will experience increasing freedom, peace, godliness, and joy. Your life will honor God and be a blessing to other people.
May the Lord fill your life with good things as you follow him! May his blessings fill you and your family this week!
