A plea for you
This series is called Unleash. Believe it or not, God himself - who thought you up and created you in every detail before you were born - wants you to have a life that reaches that full potential, unleashing all that He created you to be.
Think for a minute about your physical body. If your liver is healthy, and so is your heart and lungs, but your joints are falling apart, you will have some limitations, won't you? It doesn’t mean you can’t do anything. It just means that there are some things you aren’t able to do that you’d like to be able to do.
Well, what we’re doing in this series is a survey of some large topics of areas that affect all of us. Relationships, time, money, generosity, your spiritual life, and more.
But here's the thing: It’s not a menu from which you should pick some themes and decline others. If you say, “I think I’ll choose 3 of them and go for unleashing my potential there, but forget about that other one. No way I’m doing that!” If you do that, life might be ok, but you’ll never reach your full potential. It'll be like having healthy lungs, heart and liver, but bad joints! From God’s perspective, your life might be good, but it will never be great.
So, here's my plea: Don't give up on this series! It's unusual for us to have a 6 week series at PCC. I knew attention spans would wane and the risk was pretty good that the energy would fade a bit. But I decided to take the risk. Every week of this series is important. We're putting all we have into it, and the coming Sundays have some incredible things in store for you! (Including this week - the creative elements and the teaching will leave you saying "I'm really glad I came to church today!")
Let's UNLEASH all that God has for our lives and get every ounce of our brief days here!
See you Sunday!
