sunday notes.... august 27th

happy sunday, friends!  i've decided to start a new little blog series here.... it's going to pretty basic + straight to the point, however a wonderful tool to look back on for myself & hopefully others.  

i was recently chatting with a friend about how i'm terrible at keeping up with my sunday sermon notebooks once they are filled up & i move on to a new, fresh book.  all of those meaningful quotes + scriptures.... just lost in the jumble of my crazy house full of kindergarten drawings & elementary school permission slips & stacks of mail to be sorted.

being in an age where everything is typed + interneted + catalogued online, i thought this may be the perfect way to "save" all of my sermon notes for future referencing!

grace is greater than our weaknesses
[2 corinthians 12:1-20]
1. what are our weaknesses?
-- matthew 4 -- He healed to point them to Himself.
-- we have physical + spiritual weaknesses.

2. weaknesses are beyond our control
 -- if paul hadn't of had his weakness [thorn] in his life he would have never went to the Lord three times!
 -- we have no control over it.... but does it control us?


3. He uses them to humble us from boasting
 -- philippians 3:3-6

4. He uses them to draw us to Him
 -- in our weaknesses we should go running into the arms of God.

5. He uses them to pour out to us His grace
 -- 2 corinthians 12:9
6. He uses our weaknesses to perfect His power in us
-- it's not self-reliance or self-sufficiency.... it's Jesus Christ!

-- we all have weaknesses.
-- God has given us Himself.
-- God uses our weaknesses for us to minister + relate to others.

  1. The food was always great, I think they just updated their menu and it's off the hook. Who would expect delicious pizza at such big events. Not me, but you can get some of the best pizza at venues in Chicago. The best place in this area.
