Increasing Our Capacity
A Kingdom of Priests - Part 2
May 07, 2017 - Phil Schaefer
Ex 19:6, I Peter 2:1-9, Revelation 5:1-10, Ephesians 2:1-10
This week Mike Acock continues with part 2 of A Kingdom of Priests in our Increasing Our Capacity sermon series. What might we discover and develop in realms of ministry if we see ourselves as priests in Christ’s world? We are a Kingdom of Priests Marked by Love. How is this possible? Through forgiveness and the very life of God coursing through our being. Priests choose to see goodness, truth, beauty and life in spite of the evil, lies, decay and death. Our future is calling us forward much more than our past will push us forward. When you start living out resurrection life, your life does not shrink back but it is bursting forth with life and growth and love and compassion. We are called to release the life of God flowing through us, full of love and compassion on a hurting world of fellow human beings. Receiving more people and reaching more nations is not simply a project for us to do – it is an expression of the life of God in a Kingdom of Priests and that Kingdom of Priests fully participating with that life.

Psalm 145:4
Pastor Phil shares an update on the vision for our future. We believe God is calling us to increase our capacity to receive more people and reach more nations with the Gospel of grace. To pursue that calling, we have launched a fund-raising campaign, called Increasing Our Capacity, to build additional facilities and opportunities for ministry.

Increasing Our Capacity For Prayer

John 15:5
Jesus was the most dependent person who ever lived and knows that we were never meant to do life on our own. His goal is to make us more dependent on Him. Prayer both demonstrates and helps us realize our dependency on God.
