Ummm WHAT A MESSAGE by Pastor @realjohngray
tonight "Brand New You"
2 Cor. 5:17📖therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, old things are passed away; behold ALL things have become new. ➡Isa. 61:1📖The spirit of the lord is on me because the Lord has anointed me to send me to send the good news...with a garment of praise?➡2019: Put a smile on your face because God is about to put you on display.➡A brand is a promise; legacy brands have a promise.➡The things that you have immediately have more access to you➡If you're going to be a brand that God can use, you're going to have to show the BEFORE - your AFTER is half the story. I see that God made you new but let me see what you were before God made you new, so I know He gets ALL the glory.➡What I was is not who I AM.➡I am a brand. What are people getting when they get you?➡3 things the best brands have: 1) Product - He's producing glory but the process is gory, he's got to cut things and refine us - 2 Cor 4:16&17 - cut it out BEFORE God cuts it off! ➡2) Placement - Dont get bored while you're on your way to to your place; placement has ALWAYS been important to God. He was intentional in Gen. in the beginning - - you're planted where God wants you to be, and you need to be okay with where God has you right now. It won't be forever because He'll plant you somewhere new because the soil is not conducive to where He wants you to GROW. He wants you to prosper in your planting. ➡3) Presentation - Jude 1:24 present you faultless with exceeding joy - The presentation is not to people, He's presenting you to Himself - you're not living or working for pepole, but for God. God takes pleasure in you, He's cleaning you up and presenting you to Himself FIRST, and then He's going to share you with the world.➡The best products WILL live on, even after the founder created it.➡2018 was refining the product of your testimony - you dont take a product to market until you test it.➡We are to go out in the world to market His goodness - He'll take you from what you WERE to what you were called TO BE. #WednesdayWorship #BrandNewYou #LakewoodChurch
