The Hope for America
What's the answer for our nation, or any nation for that matter? Is it more or less government? Better government? Is it in the local, state or federal leadership? The answer for every nation is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. Chris unpacks this "you will, I will" verse and highlights the three things that we need to do to see an American revival--participate, pray and be penitent.

    God wants to take us to places we've not yet been. One of the greatest enemies in the church is complacency--getting to some level of satisfaction where you lose your appetite for God. In this message, Chris shows us three Biblical paradigms of more--more victory in 2 Kings 13:14 - 25; more anointing in 2 Kings 2:1 - 14; and more boldness in Acts 4:23 - 31. We are not just to be purpose-driven people, but also passion-driven people, believing for the more of God.

    Embracing Excellence 5
    As we wrap up Point 1 in the "Ways To a Better Life" series, Chris references Romans 12:11 to speak about the need for motivation as we pursue excellence. All successful people have learned the art of self-motivation through the power of Holy Spirit. We have to learn to motivate ourselves and not rely on other people to keep prodding us on. We also need to stay modern, not falling into the trap of "we've never done it that way before." And, finally, we need to keep the momentum and not hinder what God is doing.

    Made, Unmade, Remade
    There is much spiritual confusion today. Many think they can make up their own spirituality and put God's Name on it and then He will bless it. As Chris shows us in Judges 17:1 - 13, people can follow a "scrapple" religion--a little bit of this 'ism' and a little bit of that 'ism' and think they are ok. But self-made religion cannot save or redeem anyone. We need God to take the self-made, the man-made and the unmade person and remake them in His power and in His Spirit.

    Winston Churchill said, "Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm." We are not perfect and we will make mistakes. But failing does not make us failures. In our pursuit of excellence, we can look to Micah 7:8 for encouragement to keep getting up and learning from our mistakes. We will never achieve excellence if we are not afraid to make mistakes.

    Hooray for Dad
    We need God in our marriages, in our homes, and in our families more than we ever have. We need to recognize that if we honor God and His Word, and do things His way, we will stay under His covering. In this Father's Day message, Chris looks at the succession of four kings, four dads, found in 2 Chronicles 26 - 29. The key to seeing the blessing of God in our lives is found in 2 Chronicles 26:5.

    After reviewing the first four points thus far in the Embracing Excellence discussion of the "Ways To A Better Life" series, Chris moves on to points five and six. With 1 Timothy 4:7, 8 and 2 Corinthians 13:5 as references, he reminds us that we are either in a process of continuing to develop or we are deteriorating; there is no standing still. We need to establish good habits to continually pursue excellence and we must evaluate our lives in the light of God's Word, not in comparison to others.

    Holy Ghost & Power 3
    There is something beyond conversion that we need to live full, powerful lives. Referencing Acts 19:1 - 6, Chris talks about the power and necessity of Holy Ghost. We are intended to be people of power and have Holy Ghost power working in our lives to make our ordinary life extraordinary.

    Eleven Life-Changing Words
    Picking back up in the "Fearless: His Presence Makes the Difference" series, Chris looks at Mark 1:16 - 18 and the eleven life-changing words found in verse 17. In today's message, he discusses the first three--come, follow, Me.

    In his continuation of the "Ways To a Better Life" series, Chris expands on the first point: embracing excellence. In Part 1, we learned we need a mission to be excellent. Today, using Matthew 28:18 - 20 for reference, we learn that we also need a master plan and we need to manage well what we have.
