“Built for Upgrades”
“Upgrade”: (n) an incline going up in the direction of movement; an increase or improvement; a new version, improved model; an increase or improvement in one’s service, accommodations and privileges;
“Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more.” 1 Thessalonians 4:1 NLT
"YOU WERE CREATED TO GO UP AND TO DO GREATER THINGS!!”
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12 NIV
1. POWER OFF AND RESTART!!
”Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.”
Mark 1:35 NIV
THIS ALLOWS BUG FIXES!!
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.”
Psalms 23:5 NKJV
2. MAKE SURE TO READ ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS!!
“What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?”
James 2:14 NKJV
A MASTER NEVER STOPS BEING A STUDENT!!
3. STOP USING OLD APPS WITH YOUR NEW SOFTWARE!!
“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins.”
Mark 2:22 NLT
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me;…”Galatians 2:20 NKJV
UPGRADES ALLOW YOU TO OPERATE AT YOUR FULL POTENTIAL!!
LIFE GROUP QUESTIONS:
Besides Daily Devotions, how often do you spend with God?? Do you find yourself spending more time on Facebook or in His Book?
Do you follow a bible reading plan?? Do you find yourself skimming over certain books?? Challenge yourself to study those books!
What are some old wine that you keep pouring into your new wineskins?? Are you ready to upgrade your life and leave the “Old You” in the past?
In order to receive an upgrade, you must first “Accept and Agree” to the terms and conditions. If you haven’t received salvation and “Accepted” Jesus Christ, and want to do so now have someone from the group lead you into the salvation prayer. GOD IS GREAT!! ALL THE TIME!! ALL THE TIME!! GOD IS GREAT!
