When we live our lives from the standpoint of I must be in control of all things and all events and all people around me, our agenda is going to clash with God’s agenda. That take on life opens you up to unbearable anxiety and fear. It will wreak havoc with your ability to make decisions because your ability to make decisions will be clouded by your fear of losing control. In this final message, we will learn how to avoid a clash of kings and kingdoms by giving up control of the throne.

He began as a newborn king, but King Herod wanted Him dead. Years later, they would call Him the King of the Jews, but the religious leaders wanted Him dead. On the cross, He became the dead King. Then three days later, He became the Risen King. People are still threatened by this King who wants to sit on the throne of every heart. But believing in a Risen King can change your life forever.

One of the greatest kings in Israel’s history was King David. He was also one of the wealthiest kings. But David understood there was one King whose status and reign was above his own. He knew that all he had in power and possessions came from a higher throne than the one on which he sat. We will discover in this message how our wealth – our money and possessions – is subject to a higher King who wants to use it for eternal reasons. We will bring a special offering to the Chest of Joash this Sunday.

Because we are part of a democracy rather than a monarchy we really don’t understand the concept of thrones. We talk about the throne of God but because we are not accustomed to honoring a king, serving a king, or answering to a king in our society then we struggle to appreciate the importance of enthroning someone as king. In this opening message, a game we played as children will challenge us to see God in a different way – as the King He really is.

Overloaded people live in deficit —emotional deficit, relational deficit, and spiritual deficit. If you have ever overdrawn your checking account, you know the immediate stress and pressure that comes. You immediately want to find a way to cover it, but where do you find money when you are completely out? It is just as possible to get overdrawn in life. When you are overwhelmed, you find yourself living in deficit. You get overdrawn in your marriage, overdrawn with your kids, and you just plain run out of the spiritual, mental, relational, and emotional currency that it takes to really enjoy life. Join us for this final message as we learn from Jesus how to find rest in Him.

This message will show us the areas of our life we need to address in order to experience rest from the stress.

We are living in a society that by all accounts is working more and resting less. In the U.S., 85.8 percent of males and 66.5 percent of females work more than 40 hours per week. For many of us, more work leads to more stress and a lower quality of life. Without time to unwind, take care of your home, spend time with loved ones, enjoy our hobbies, connect with friends, our life is out of balance. God never meant it to be that way. In this message we will discover why God gave us a Sabbath.

According to Jesus, our location in eternity is not based on social standing or lineage. It’s based on God’s grace. His cheerful willingness to grant forgiveness to anyone honest enough to admit that they are not God, but that they need God in their lives; that at their core, they are morally flawed and in need of a Savior. In this final message, we’ll get an interesting glimpse by Jesus in the life to come.
