Pathway Update 02/05/2016

February 05, 2016

Welcome to 50 Days of Transformation. Pathway is studying the transforming power of God in our spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, relational, financial, and career lives. When Jesus takes us to Himself, He wants all of us. This week we study physical health. It sounds like this will be a “get on a treadmill” message. Is it? 

Series Memory Verse - Romans 12: 2 

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

This week’s Memory Verse - I Corinthians 6: 19-20  

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

Testimony Series Post-Easter

Pathway, you keep asking, “Did anyone agree to do this?” So here it is. Yes, I’m finally starting to get some “I’ll help” responses. I’m still looking for someone who can give testimony about God’s grace and how He brought painful and/or sinful happenings full circle in the midst of divorce, abortion (his and/or her stories), addiction, teenage rebellion, and abuse. We have testimonies planned for death of a spouse, health calamities, and an unwed pregnancy. Testimonies will be given in one of three formats:  interview with me, video, or via read manuscript. I will work with each presenter on the format most appropriate to him, her, or them. I will also work with them to groom their testimony so it’s well told. The purpose of telling these difficult stories is to see the hand of God in our lives in our lowest moments and how His grace still reaches, and to prepare ourselves for the day when God will bring others to Pathway with these stories of brokenness. If you can help, let me know.

Sunday Message Overview December - March

We studied much history, geography, and architecture as it connected to Jesus’ childhood homes in the month of December. I promised to be practical throughout January – March. The first three January messages were on decision making. Now I’m teaching on transformation in our spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, relational, financial, and career. When Jesus takes us for Himself, He transforms all of us. It’s practical. Are you putting it to use?
