(Wk1) LIES (Grow Pastor ~ Duncan Robinson)

What ever happened to SIN?

Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major SINS of our society that we have lost sight of the need to deal with our own SINS?

Maybe it's time that we confront the SINS that we have comfortably begun to tolerate - those SINS that have slowly taken us HOSTAGE!

BIG IDEA… You have to get NAKED to get CLEAN!

The Four LIES That You Need To Know…

1. “You Have To Carry Your Own Baggage - Because You’re A Big Sinner!”

2. “You Can Get Clean With Your Clothes On!”

3. “I Can Still Keep My Box”

4. “I’m Not Special!”

The ADDICTED YOUTH are INVADING our Services this week!

Our GROW Pastor (Duncan Robinson) will be kicking off this NEW SERIES that you don’t wanna miss! If for any other reason… just to hear a COOL ‘AUSSIE’ Accent deliver the WORD!

Don’t Miss This Week @ COC!

Maricopa Wells Middle School / 9a & 10:45a

You know you’re a MOTHER when…

1. You’ve signed a check with a Crayon!

2. You wish your Baby Monitor had a SNOOZE button!

3. You can feed a small family with the leftover French Fries & Gold Fish in the backseat of your car!

4. You find yourself talking in THIRD PERSON all the time! i.e. “Mommy said no!”

5. Your child has taken two baths today and you haven’t showered in two days!

6. You can use a Baby Wipe a thousand different ways that don’t involve changing a diaper!

7. Instead of SINGING in the shower – you say things like…

-No… You can’t get in!

-Just please… go watch Dora!

-Don’t open the door!

-Is anyone hurt?

8. An uninterrupted shower feels like a day at the SPA!

9. You can sing every Nick Jr theme song – but you can’t remember where you left your keys!

10. On the rare chance you go to the Grocery Store – ALONE – you walk the aisles SLOWLY – as if you’re in a Museum!

Mothers are teachers.

Mothers are disciplinarians.

Mothers are cleaning ladies.

Some Mothers are gardeners & mowers of lawns.

Most Mothers understand that baking cookies is more important than washing windows, too.

Mothers are nurses & doctors & psychologists & counselors & chauffeurs & coaches.

Mothers are developers of personalities, molders of vocabularies, & shapers of attitudes.

Mothers are soft voices saying, "I love you."

And Mothers are a link to God - a child’s FIRST impression of GOD’S LOVE!

Romans 10:15... And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"

I came across a column by Erma Bombeck – worth sharing! (God’s Creation of Mother’s)

On the day God created mothers He had already worked long overtime. And an angel said to Him, "Lord, you sure are spending a lot of time on this one." 

The Lord turned & said, "Have you read the specs on this model? She is supposed to be completely washable, but not plastic. She is to have 180 moving parts, all of them replaceable. She is to have a kiss that will heal everything from a broken leg to a broken heart. She is to have a lap that will disappear whenever she stands up. She is to be able to function on black coffee & leftovers. And she is supposed to have six pairs of hands."

"Six pairs of hands," said the angel, "that’s impossible." "It’s not the six pairs of hands that bother me." said the Lord, "It’s the three pairs of eyes. She is supposed to have one pair that sees through closed doors so that whenever she says, `What are you kids doing in there?’ she already knows what they’re doing in there."

"She has another pair in the back of her head to see all the things she is not supposed to see but must see. And then she has one pair right in front that can look at a child that just goofed & communicate love & understanding without saying a word."

"That’s too much." said the angel, "You can’t put that much in one model. Why don’t you rest for a while & resume your creating tomorrow?"

"No, I can’t," said the Lord. "I’m close to creating someone very much like myself. I’ve already come up with a model who can… heal herself when she is sick - who can feed a family of six with one pound of hamburger - & who can persuade a nine year old to take a shower."

Then the angel looked at the model of motherhood a little more closely & said, "She’s too soft." "Oh, but she is tough," said the Lord. "You’d be surprised at how much this mother can do."

"Can she think?" asked the angel. "Not only can she think," said the Lord, "but she can reason & compromise & persuade."

Then the angel reached over & touched her cheek. "This one has a leak," he said. "I told you that you couldn’t put that much in one model." "That’s not a leak," said the Lord. "That’s a tear."

"What’s a tear for?" asked the angel. "Well it’s for joy, for sadness, for sorrow, for disappointment, for pride." "You’re a genius," said the angel. And the Lord said, "Oh, but I didn’t put it there."


Have an incredible Mother’s Day – Mom’s!

You are AMAZING!

See you Sunday @ COC / 9A & 10:45A
