The Annual Theme for 2017
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Matthew 19:26 (KJV)
Limitless Possibilities do not come without its challenges. These are both great and challenging times for our church. It is a time of transition and transformation for our congregation. As we continue to witness our church growing numerically, financially and most of all spiritually, it is critical that we be of one mind and one spirit. The way we act and respond to our various areas of growth will determine whether we succeed or fail. Remember, attitude is everything. We are “The Different Church, Making A Difference” and we will exemplify this motto by moving forward through our positive, encouraging, and supportive attitudes which will help plunge our church and God's kingdom further towards its destiny on earth. Please know that I stand today to tell you that we all can be proud to be called, Living Faith Covenant Church.
Living Faith, God is inviting us to the Limitless Possibilities through Him. God is able to do anything and He can do it beyond our imagination. Yes, Living Faith we have limitless possibilities. In the year of 2017, we will bring God your most daring petition, impossible request, and unimaginable desire for God has power that supersedes all that we can think or ask. And, there's a difference between what we ask and what we think. There are things we don’t ask for because they appear to be beyond the bounds of possibility and there are things we don’t think of because we feel they are unattainable. But Paul covers all of this by telling us that God is able to do exceeding abundantly above and beyond all that we can ask, think, or imagine according to the power that works in us. So:
- If God has offered you something, accept it.
- If God has told you something, believe it.
- If God has given you something, receive it.
- If God has challenged you with something, do it.
- If God has promised you something, go get it and if God has blessed you with something, enjoy it. Nothing is too hard, nothing is too confusing to God, and nothing is too difficult for God.
But that’s not all. Paul says now that we know the wonderful ability of God and we know that as our church our possibilities are limitless, let’s put a benediction on this. Paul says, “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”
Our task is to remember that “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” 2017 is the year of "Limitless Possibilities."
Your humble servant,
Evangelist Marvin T. Roberts
