As a Church we are going big and bold together
We are going big in prayer
We are going big in sound and song
We are going big in the Word and the messages that God is giving us
As we are going big, our faith is going to rise
1. We must be bold in defense
2. We must be bold in offense…it’s time to attack
3. We must be bold in our new directions
4. We must be bold in our established faith
5. We must be bold in our sowing
6. We must be bold in going after great harvest
7. We must be bold in sowing our God given gifting in the Church
We are going to have enthusiasm and do things that are serious in nature
We are going to be expanding and large in the way that we go forward with things
We are going to be bold and courageous together
This is about the grace of God allowing your gift to have space to grow,
to enlarge and make big the Body of Christ
“Do you see, in the Spirit, that this is a strategic time, this is a time for you and me, for us together, collective greatness. This is a time for us to begin to hold, to join hands, to join and strengthen our combined resources, combine our faith, combine our prayers, get united in our prayers, begin to press in spirit, for the big things that God has got for us.
As we press, as we come together collectively, great together in our faith, great together in our agreement, great together in our life of prayer, great together in sound and song and the way that we worship, greatness in the things, the boldness, and the strength will grow.
And the big things that God has planned for us will begin to come into the material world as we bring them out of the spirit realm.”
Key Scripture for us to go big and bold this year:
Ephesians 4: 7-8; 11-13 from The Passion Translation
7 And he has generously given each one of us supernatural grace, according to the size of the gift of Christ. 8 This is why he says: “He ascends into the heavenly heights taking his many captured ones with him, and gifts were given to men.”
11 And he has appointed some with grace to be apostles, and some with grace to be prophets, and some with grace to be evangelists, and some with grace to be pastors, and some with grace to be teachers. 12 And their calling is to nurture and prepare all the holy believers to do their own works of ministry, and as they do this they will enlarge and build up the body of Christ. 13 These grace ministries will function until we all attain oneness in the faith, until we all experience the fullness of what it means to know the Son of God, and finally we become one perfect man with the full dimensions of spiritual maturity and fully developed in the abundance of Christ.
We need the abundance of Christ on the earth through us going big and bold in all our gifts!
