Why did scars convince doubting Thomas? And what does secretly eating marshmallows have to do with being honest with God? Using a nice blend of Bible and personal stories in this Easter Sunday talk, Ben shows us how we can only be as close to God as we are honest with Him.
Dave concludes the Spectacularly Normal series with another look at the Bible character, Joseph, who trusted God to look after fulfilling his dream, served well in the ordinary, and was ready for God’s “suddenly”. Listen in as Dave talks about how God’s “suddenlies” can happen in our life.
Most of our life is spent doing the ordinary. So, to be spectacular, excel in the ordinary. Taking a great example from the life of Joseph, Dave looks at two key issues in life which either help us live life well in the ordinary or severely hinder us – and he shares the keys to being spectacularly normal. It’s integrity vs entitlement.
What is ordinary? And what makes it spectacular? Dave takes another look at Joseph in the Bible – who began to catch the eye of key people because he was doing the ordinary very well. There’s a particular power when we serve God and excel in our ordinary. But how do we do that? Listen in as Dave shares the keys to living a spectacularly normal life.
God is spectacular – yet He’s right in your normal. Often, God “marks” us in the spectacular but “makes” us in the ordinary. So how can we be our very best at being ordinary? Dave looks at how God “marked” and “made” Joseph in the Bible – and how that can apply to us in the 21st century.
How can you turn a problem into a promise? Ben takes a look at an uneducated, underprivileged fisherman called Peter with all his problems, and how Jesus chose him and turned him into a powerful person with amazing promises – and then shows us how God also chooses us and moves us from a problem to a promise.
