Desperation 


Matt19:16-30

Reasons why we don’t like to look desperate. 

1. Makes us look weak to others. 

2.Fear of the unknown.

3. It means we’re not in charge. 

We must get desperate for God not just check in at church just to check it off of our checklist when we attend church. We have a tendency not to become desperate because we become fearful of the unknown . One reason why we don’t become desperate is because we are afraid of change because we want to be in control of our lives. We also become comfortable in our convenience.Our convenience  can become complacency if we don’t watch it.  

Benefits of being Desperate:

1.We don’t care what others will think. 

2. We will almost do anything to see it happen. 

3. Desperate people look for opportunities.

4. Desperate people bring change.

One benefit when we get desperate about our relationship with him we will begin to draw closer to him. Also when we get desperate we will look for opportunities to get closer and learn from him. When we get to that place of true desperation we will see our families and communities Change.  Gen18:24-33  How do we live desperate . First we must understand his will for our lives. As we begin to understand his will for our lives we will get a hunger to reach our town. 

Are you desperate for God as an individual?

Are you desperate for God as a Family?

Are you desperate for God as a church?

As an individual we must become desperate for God. When we get desperate for God in our personal walk with him that will draw our families to get desperate for God. Once our families in our churches get desperate  those churches can impact there community.

  1. ‘Our convenience can become complacency if we don’t watch it.’ excellent thought…I also love how you link individual intimacy with God to change in community…very good points.
