“I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” (John 17:14 NKJV)
CALLING ALL MISFITS: FITTING IN WILL ROB YOU OF YOUR PURPOSE!
“We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored!” (1 Corinthians 4:10 NKJV)
MISFITS HAVE “IT” ALREADY: LOOK INWARD NOT OUTWARD!
“He said, “Bring them here to Me.” Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.” (Matthew 15:18-19 NKJV)
“Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind” (Genesis 1:11-12 NKJV)
THE GLORY IS GOD’S; PERIOD.
“Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away. (Matthew 21:18-19 NKJV)
