If you are familiar with CCA at all or follow our tweets you know we believe in series teaching. I have been teaching and preaching God’s word for 18 years now, and having pastored the majority of that time, have become convinced that series teaching is the most productive and efficient way to build disciples, create understanding and take people on a journey of transformation in Him. Beginning October 16th we are launching our next 5 week series entitled “Guardrails.”
The concept behind the series is very simple but extremely important. Guardrails on the road are somewhat of an invisible part of our driving experience. Nobody ever really pays attention to them or even notices them until you need them. They aren’t placed there to limit our driving experience or inhibit us in any way. They are there for one reason and one reason only….TO SAVE OUR LIVES. The guardrail stands as both a protector and warning of what lies just beyond.
In very much the same way God’s word gives us guardrails to protect and preserve our lives, our families, our marriages and our futures. This is going to be an awesome series and here are 5 reasons you don’t want to miss even one message.
1. IT WILL ANSWER MANY QUESTIONS WE HAVE ABOUT PIVOTAL ISSUES IN OUR LIVES
So many times in our lives we reflect on events and things that transpired and try to figure out why certain things occurred and how they could have been different. Oftentimes we simply just conclude it was just a part of life. While at times this may be true, many times the trajectory of events could have been greatly altered had we simply understood the power of a guardrail at a strategic spot.
2. IT WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE SCRIPTURAL INSTRUCTION
For many, the bible is nothing more than a big book of rules and regulations trying to limit our experience and take the fun out of life. You are going to gain a new found appreciation for how much our Father truly loves us and in His infinite wisdom has created a system to allow life to be lived to it’s fullest.
3. IT COULD SAVE YOU FROM FUTURE CATASTROPHE
All of us have regrets. Some of us have huge regrets. The truth is, that thing we look back on and regret the most could have been avoided if we had learned and embraced the principle of the guardrail earlier. The future of your marriage, your children as well as everything else in your life can be altered by learning this simple but profound truth.
4. IT WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHY CERTAIN PATTERNS ARE REPEATING THEMSELVES
We all have a tendency to hope for a better tomorrow without ever truly changing anything to insure that things will in fact be any different. As we talk about various topics I am convinced lights are going to start coming on as to why things have been present in our lives for long periods of time.
5. IT WILL REDEFINE WHAT TRUE FREEDOM IS
We live in a world that defines freedom and liberty very differently than our heavenly Father who was and is the creator of all that we know. The truth is what many call freedom is ultimately bondage and restriction that leads to eventual devastation. When we learn to walk and live as our creator intended for us to walk and live, we experience the power of true discovery. The secret to life if you will. The key to liberty, true freedom and a life wide open.
I’m excited, stoked and ready to watch God do His thing. Hope to see you there and that you will bring someone with you.
All for Christ,
