Courage

Courage #2
Series:Courage
Duration:36 mins 14 secs
Courage #2

FEAR...
  • Never changed anything for the better.
  • Never kept the church standing firm.
  • Never produced joy.
  • Won't free us to live positively, confidently and Christianly on the margins.
Courage is NOT the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than one's fear."

Directed by Courage?
  • If we are to have courage we need to know God. Romans 8:31-39
  • They were "more than conqueror's" because they were infinitely and unstoppably loved by God.
Romans 11:33-36 – Paul is pleading with us to get our eyes off of ourselves and on to God.
  • Why? Because that is how you get courage...you look to God.
God is...
  1. Unspeakably rich.
  2. Infinitely knowledgeable.
The LONG Game...
  • The Lord will NOT become a slave to our cultural assumptions and demands.
  • The future is NOT a time that God knows about: it is a place where God is.
The Unforgiveable Sin of This Culture...Think less of yourself.
  • To live with real courage requires us to live with a right assessment of our own weakness.
  • Romans 11:34
THIS God...
  • When we begin to get a handle on the greatness of God, we begin to great, God-given, God-sized courage.
  • When we look to God, we get courage to live for God.
Bottom Line...you don't find courage from looking deep within yourself.
  • God given courage comes from having a view of the greatness of the God who is at our side.
  • We are MORE than conquerors, always through him who loves us.
