Supernatural Fuel for Life

Gas prices go up and down and in many ways, does it really matter? We’re still going to go, go, sooner or later, we’ll need to put fuel in our cars or motorcycles. Food prices go up and down; does it really matter? We’ll still get sooner or later, we’ll buy what we need to fuel our bodies. Fuel allows us to keep on going (vehicles) and growing (bodies).

I want you to consider a different and more advanced type of fuel, supernatural fuel. Ephesians 1:19-20 says, “I pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God's power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms.”

I have always found it amazing that we can catapult massive tonnage of steel like rockets and shuttles in the heavens. Rockets launch with an incredible amount of fuel. Yet stop right NOW and think of the kind of supernatural fuel that was necessary to “launch” Jesus from the grave. It’s one thing to launch a missile, it’s an ENTIRELY more awesome event to raise someone from the dead! Think of the POWER in that fuel! Not sure if I should say, “WOW” or “WHOA!”

Get this...God says to us that the same fuel that launched Jesus from the grave is available to those of us who believe, everyday and in every way. WOW!

As your pastor, I want you to get FUELED up in this New Year. I desire for you to know God more and grow deeper in your relationship with Him. I invite you to the launching pad at The Crossing this Tuesday and/or Thursday night (for the next four weeks) for what we’re calling FUEL. Get more info by clicking this link: Fuel Classes. Give it a go. The countdown has begun!

Ready for lift-off,
