SOMETHING (Episode 4)
OUR CONVERSATION FOR JUNE 2017: SOMETHING SOMETHING OLD. SOMETHING NEW. SOMETHING MORE.
Sometimes what feels comfortable is not healthy. Even so, we slip into the way we’ve always done things because it seems to be easier. And, don’t we all want easier in this complicated life? The uncomfortable places are the open door to growth and strength—it’s where we take the leap of faith. BUT. And, it’s a big but—if we stay in the comfortable place—we will find ourselves deep in anxiety and eventually stress. Because, what matters is missed. Would you do it, if, you knew it would all work out? The grid of this conversation comes from the Old and New Testament—the full, complete unabridged story of God—the crosspoint of life.

It all comes down to SOMETHING this Sunday morning– SOMETHING meant to make a difference every. single. day. BE READY.
1. New w_____________________.
2. New w_____________________.
3. New w_____________________.
The catalyst of how we live requires us to continue with the specific way of thinking:
_____________________ and _____________________, which is _____________________ thinking.
The OLD Testament and NEW Testament is our grid–the revelation of our _____________________ without and with–_____________________.
Peter Drucker said it simply and powerfully:
KEY GOD-WORD: (Voice)
Read the book of Amos this week–despite it being OLD it holds SOMETHING PROFOUND.
Something New: Mark. This week read Mark 2.
21 These are new things I’m teaching, and they can’t be reconciled with old habits. Nobody would ever use a piece of new cloth to patch an old garment because when the patch shrinks, it pulls away and makes the tear even worse. 22 And nobody puts new, unfermented wine into old wineskins because if he does, the wine will burst the skins; they would lose both the wineskins and the wine. No, the only appropriate thing is to put new wine into new wineskins (Voice).
Key thoughts regarding “Something Old, Something New, and Something More”:
1. God does something more than anyone or anything can do: _____________________ . Underline this in your soul.
2. Everything. Made _____________________.
New _____________________. New _____________________.
3. God has designed our life to be lived with _____________________ energy.
Job 32:19: My insides are like fresh wine sealed up and needing to breathe. Like a new wineskin, I am on the brink of bursting from the pressure.
