FORWARD, EVEN FOREVER
Since God is excited about your upgrade, you might as well line up your heart with His heart.
I have a rockstar marriage. My wife loves me and I’m telling you, Leanna is smitten with me. She nearly faints every time I walk past her. She’s always fanning herself. But here’s the deal man: there’s other levels the Lord has for us.
Our life is changing. We’re getting older and our kids are growing up. There are so many untapped, unclaimed upgrades for us and we’re going after them.
As a church, the church has never been as fun as it is right now. We’ve never made a bigger difference in the world. Still, we can’t say we’ve reached the ceiling, we’ve “been there, done that and here’s the T-shirt to prove it.”
When it comes to me, my marriage, family and this church, “Concerning His kingdom and of His peace, there shall be no end.”
“Well Pastor Troy, how come there are so many endings with so many Christians?” That’s a great question and the answer is simple: Because we decide we’ve gone far enough. It’s not because Jesus has decided we’ve gone far enough. We sit back down on the couch and say, “I’ve done enough. I’m retiring from this. Someone else can do it.”
Here’s the deal. The command from the Lord Jesus Christ is that we should be passionately and actively involved in things causing us to live life forward from where we’ve been – which is our history – to where we’re suppose to be – which is our destiny. Our destiny is greater than our history.
Are you there yet? Have you arrived at your destination? The answer is a resounding “No” if you didn’t wake up in heaven this morning. Don’t tap out. Claim your upgrade and line your heart up with Father’s. Move forward, even forever.
“Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” – Isaiah 9:7
FROM MY SERMON SERIES UPGRADE
TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Progression is My passion. Though I Am the same yesterday, today and forever, My Kingdom is not. I designed it to change, improve and upgrade – as do you. Choose to improve, to upgrade. There is no end to My Kingdom including you.
