prayer in imagination

Lent to Easter 2015 (2 of 7) by David Flowers

Sermon Series: Lent to Easter 2015
Sermon Title: The God Who Does the Spectacular
Scripture Reading: Gen 17:1-7,15-22; Romans 4:13-25; Mark 8:31-38; Ephesians 3:20-21

What is God doing? What does he want to do? Whatever God is doing, it isn't "same old, same old." God wants to do a new thing! 

Our Lent to Easter 2015 series focuses our attention on our need to see how and where God is at work in our personal walk with him, and in the life of our church. Are we listening? Do we recognize the Holy Spirit at work?

God works in ways that surprise us, ways that seem upside down and inside out. God’s 
imagination is much bigger than ours. When God delivers on a promise, he does it in spectacular style. He not only wants us to experience his love and grace in unforgettable ways, he wants his work to be recognized by others. He will leave his signature on our lives, if we will learn to trust him and adopt his imagination for what could be in the future.

Not Against Flesh & Blood (4 of 7) by David Flowers

In the beginning the Triune God created an orderly universe out of love. Then somewhere in the primordial past a portion of his angelic agents began working against the Creator—war in the unseen realms! In this series, David addresses how things came to be broken the way they are today, and how the spiritual forces of evil are still at work exploiting human weakness and opposing God's will. It's a struggle between good and evil, but ultimately the real battle is not one of flesh and blood. In the fourth message, David talks about the practical side of prayer with a challenge to use a disciplined imagination to see who and what we're praying for.
