Thank you, Holly Furtick for a memorable, moving message this weekend on overpowering discouragement. Our series based on Pastor Steven’s book Crash the Chatterbox has been amazing, inspiring, and life-changing.
In case you missed it, Holly took us to Genesis 29:35 where Leah says, “This time, I will praise the Lord.” Holly reminded us that we WILL be discouraged, and asked the question, “What will you do WHEN it happens?”
Such a powerful message. Holly was so vulnerable and thoughtful. She shared that “the hardest part of following Jesus is not understanding WHAT to do, it’s DOING what I understand.”
Holly outlined six points – Look back. Look up. Look out. Look beyond. Look around. Look in. It’s such a great message. You must go to our sermon archives or on the Elevation Network this week to hear it for yourself.
In the meantime, let’s focus a moment longer on Holly’s fourth point – Look Beyond.
She said, “Find someone you can help,” and quoted Luke 6:38 which says “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
We are grateful for Holly’s encouragement and leadership. Thanks to the vision of our leaders, we can serve through outreach partners in Charlotte, Matthews, Rock Hill, Gaston, Concord, Toronto, and in many other parts of the world.
If you’re wondering where to start and you attend our Matthews, University, or Concord locations, mark March 22 on your calendar. That’s LOVE Weekend for these locations. It means we’re setting up opportunities for you to serve through our outreach partners near your location.
You’ll get an introduction to these partners and hopefully find a place where you can plug in and serve regularly. Opportunities are going up online now.
