The Comeback, Week 3,

September 25th, 2022

The Bible carries the most incredible message in the world. It has the power to transform our thoughts and, ultimately, our lives. We love to quote its verses to encourage ourselves and others in difficult times and when giving advice or counseling––but sometimes, those verses get taken out of context. What happens when we miss the original intent and meaning of the most powerful message in the world? Can it hurt, and does it matter?

It's important to try not to make the Bible say something it didn't say. In this message series, Pastor Lance will cover some of our favorite and most misused verses. We'll learn the context of the verses and what they really mean. We hope this message series, The Bible Didn't Say That, strengthens and encourages your faith.

In this message, Pastor Lance uses a powerful example of an hourglass to represent the life God has given us. It's passing away like the grains of sand that pass from one part of the glass to another. Once the sand has run its course, it can't be put back. That's why being present is so important. We've only been given so much sand.

Being fully present is tricky. Almost half the time, we are physically in one place but mentally somewhere else. We can't love people if we're not present with people.

Jesus lived a different way. He was fully present in the moment. In this message, we talk about what keeps us from being fully present. Being fully present is not something that comes easy, but the more we practice, the easier it becomes.

Do you know someone who could use some encouragement? Send this message to them—it could be exactly what they need!
