After a year-and-a-half of the world being shut down, loss piling up, events being canceled, and relationships being stretched, it’s time for us to stand up, step out, and overcome the giants in our lives. God’s Word gives example after example of people overcoming obstacles to step into a new future and a new hope. As a church family, it’s time we see that this future and hope is available to us, too; that against all odds, through Jesus, we can rise, persevere, and experience life-changing victory.
The New Testament Church was a group of unlikely, ragtag leaders who went on to change the world. Because Jesus was their cornerstone, this group of leaders was able to cross all kinds of societal and cultural lines to create a life-changing, world-shaking community.
When a young shepherd boy came up against an incredible giant, he ran to meet the challenge because of his confidence in his great God. God had been preparing David all of his life to face that giant and to prepare him for what many might describe as an “unlikely victory.”
Against all odds, God is still moving in real people’s lives. Sam and Emmanuel Acho share personal stories of the importance of cheering on one another, telling each other difficult truths, and above all, encouraging a deep relationship with God.
God uses our strengths, but He can also show off in spite of our weaknesses. He can look beyond what appears to be, and call out something so much more.
