Sermon Notes

We ALL ought to be Coming out of this COVID CRISIS DIFFERENT then when we went in. Stronger Spiritually, Not Weaker. We are Being Recreated for a New Era. We need to be Ready for Rapid Response and Flexibility to the Leading of God’s Spirit. This is a time TO ADVANCE. . . NOT RETREAT. A time to GAIN NEW GROUND, not LOSE GROUND. As Your Pastor that I Believe our BEST DAYS are Before us, Not Behind.


God wants us to win in the race of life. Complaining and bickering can hinder us in our happiness and in running the race, but happiness comes not only from what we do but also from what we don’t do. Instead of seeing the obstacles ahead, let’s look at the opportunities.

  • You must be dissatisfied with where you are.
  • Get rid of extra weight and things that would hinder you.
  • Run with the right motive.
  • Have a clear objective and focus.
  • Don’t look back.
  • Press on, even when it gets hard!


  • Hebrews 12:1
  • 2 Timothy 4:7–8
  • Psalm 1
  • John 8:46
  • Philippians 2
