our God is limitless

Here is a truth that we must embrace:

When we believe God, we take the limits off of our lives and off the people around us.

Explore the character of our God.  Take the limits off, and what do we believe, what have we seen, and what will we seek from God?  I believe that is something we can or must let be our reality.  God loves His people and desires to take the limits off of our minds and of our hearts and to fill our dreams with all that He can do.

I believe that the church, filled with God’s children, is to the herald or the announcer of God’s grace.  He continues to accept people and change lives.  The same truth that took hold of our lives is the same truth that took hold of the apostles and the early church.  That is the same hope that gave Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as well as Moses the presence of God.

They heard and told others to return.  This is the same truth, the same hope that is being offered to change lives in our day.  It is my desire as your pastor to make sure we offer not only food or clothes or resources, but we are to offer the limitless grace of God to all that we serve.

Colossians 1:6  NLT
This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.

Let our limitless God do limitless things.  That is what that very is built on.  God can do anything.  He can change anyone.  He is the starting point and the end.  He is message, and nothing else compares to Him.

Our message is of Christ first and only.  Right?  We want people to know Him.  We desire that people come to experience His grace.  That grace I’ve seen and fallen for more and more.  My experience and faith has literally kicked the limits off what I see and off what I want.

Philippians 3:10  NLT
I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead.  I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death

That was Paul.  More than 3/4 of the New Testament is attributed to his writing.  More church planting and more lives changed because a man’s life was changed by God.  He demonstrated the limitless power of God as well as the grace of God that allowed him to return.  Paul’s life showed others God.

What does it look like to be desperate for God?  What is it to let God do what He can do and get out of the way so He can do it?

Hebrews 12:3  NASB

There’s more to being a Christian than just getting by.  Many of the people you and I deal with are just surviving.  Go...
