IMAGINE pt 1
2 Kings 6:1-7 NLT ”One day the group of prophets came to Elisha and told him, “As you can see, this place where we meet with you is too small. Let’s go down to the Jordan River, where there are plenty of logs. There we can build a new place for us to meet.” “All right,” he told them, “go ahead.” “Please come with us,” someone suggested. “I will,” he said. So he went with them. When they arrived at the Jordan, they began cutting down trees. But as one of them was cutting a tree, his ax head fell into the river. “Oh, sir!” he cried. “It was a borrowed ax!” “Where did it fall?” the man of God asked. When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at that spot. Then the ax head floated to the surface. “Grab it,” Elisha said. And the man reached out and grabbed it.”
- It’s too SMALL
Where we meet is too small’
1 Corinthians 9:19 NKJV “For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more;”
Ephesians 3:20 TPT “Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.”

LETS BUILD A NEW PLACE
Ephesians 3:20-21 MSG “God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!”

- PLEASE COME with us
Who will you go with?
Make sure Jesus is FIRST ON YOUR LIST
Remember as you step into the new year!
YOU can reflect on the year past & think about the plans you want to make for the coming one.
Maybe you want to;
– Grow your career.
– Be more active and healthy.
– Spend more time with my family and friends.
– Work on your relationship’s.
Setting goals is exciting and inspiring.
But don’t get carried away and let all our thoughts and plans revolve around our own dreams and desires.
MAKE ROOM FOR JESUS, you are His disciple after all! Keeping Him at the center is empowering because He holds every dream, every hope, and every area of our lives together.
Colossians 1:17-23 NLT ”He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body. He is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead. So he is first in everything. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News. The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it.“

John 14:14-15 AMPC ”[Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands.“
James 4:1-3 NKJV ”Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.“
Let’s go for it;
Every believer a leader & every leader a disciple maker!
