Yesterday we kicked off the new year with our series, the Power of Same. It is the perfect series for the beginning of the year. This series is based out of John 15 and the idea that sameness is really what we need more of in our lives. The title of this week’s message was called, More of the Same.
While, of course, there are patterns of sameness in our lives that are not good. Stagnancy and stubbornness can often cause us to get in a rut. But my husband taught about sacred sameness. The sameness that causes us to develop patterns and routines that have lasting rewards. Like being married to the same person for 50 years. Or developing healthy eating habits and patterns of exercise.
My husband told us, If we resist the monotonous we will miss the miracle. We must learn to repeat the right things until the routine is the reward. The process that everyone resists creates the product everyone wants.
As a church, we are taking the first 15 minutes of the month of January to read John 15. We also have a website with an eating plan and workout plan for you to participate in. The site is currently undergoing some issues but should be up and running soon but go ahead and sign up now to join BeginAgainChallenge.com. I hope you will join us!
This is going to be such a great series! You can watch it later today on the Elevation Network, in our archive and on our podcast. And don’t forget, every sermon is also available on the Elevation App for your smart phone.
Also, if you missed my husband’s New Year’s Eve message, it was so powerful. It was called, Find Your Flow. You can watch it here.
Have a great Monday!
