The Grasshopper Complex—Bringing It All Together (Continued)
Speaker: Pastor Barbara
Scripture: Philippians 3:12-13 (AMP)
 
Many Christians fall short of their God given challenge for fear that they do not have sufficient strength or resources to succeed. This fear is what we have termed as the GRASSHOPPER COMPLEX. It is a fear which paralyzes believers in their walk of faith. We need to be reminded that, as followers of Jesus, we have been given everything we need to run the race marked out for us and to overcome any obstacle the enemy places in our way.

    Scripture: Joshua 3:1-4 (AMP
     

    If we would realize the Promises of God in our lives, the very first thing that you and I must be ready to do is to move ahead obediently into transitions—even with all the uncertainty that comes with change.

    The Grasshopper Complex—When Faith is Not Enough
    Speaker: Pastor Barbara
    Scripture: Numbers 14 (AMP)
     

    Refusing Moses’ warning that the Lord was not among them, the people forged ahead into battle anyway. The result was disastrous. The Amalekites and the Canaanites came down and attacked them and drove them as far as Hormah. Hormah is not a place as much as a physical state of being. It means UTTER DESTRUCTION. The Israelites were pushed to the brink of annihilation.

    Scripture: Numbers 13:25-33 (AMP)
     
     

    The Grasshopper Complex is the number one affliction of many Christians. It has afflicted some of the most famous of spiritual heroes, like Gideon, Peter, even Moses and Joshua were faced with it. The difference is that these men, by faith, overcame the giants that would impede their faith and moved on to victory. Their lives are testimonies that you do not have to remain where you are, but you can with faith in God’s promise, provision, and presence overcome any giant or obstacle satan puts in your path.

    Speaker: Pastor Barbara
    Scripture: Ephesians 4:16 (AMP)
     

    This is the last lesson in our series, LET’S BUILD A STRONG CHURCH COMMUNITY. In a society that is becoming increasingly fragmented, in which people seem more and more separated from one another, the church can be a refuge. More than a building, more than a Sunday morning meeting, more than an organization—a community. A place where people come together. A place where people care about, and take care of, one another. A place where every person matters. A place where, if you don’t show up, somebody notices.

    Speaker: Pastor Barbara
    Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:11-13 (AMP)
     
    So far in this series, we’ve looked at building community through mutual forbearance and putting up with one another’s faults and failings.  We’ve looked at the importance of seeking peace and unity with one another.  And today, we’re going to be looking at the power of encouragement in strengthening the bonds of love that hold us together.  We need to encourage one another because encouragement is a powerful tool to help one another persevere in faith.
