Week 1: The Road of Honey
Bible: Matthew 3:1-12
Bottom Line: Even someone who doesn’t have it all together can do something great for God. God used John the Baptist to pave the way for the arrival of Jesus. John had some weird eating habits, but God still used him in an important way.
Week 2: A Wee Little Man
Bible: Luke 19:1-10
Bottom Line: Zacchaeus had to change his posture, or position in order to see Jesus more clearly. Sometimes in our life our perspective is skewed, we need to change our approach, and when we do that we see Jesus in a whole new way.
Week 3: Through the Roof
Bible: Luke 5:17:39
Bottom Line: Sometimes the craziest ideas reap a rewarding result. It doesn’t matter what condition you are in when you come to Jesus, when you come He will change your life.
Week 4: Didn’t See That Coming
Bible: John 8:1-11
Bottom Line: Have you ever been caught doing something embarrassing? Most people will react with shame and disgust, but Jesus shows compassion and grace. Even in our most awkward situations, Jesus responds to us with love.
Week 1: The Best Policy - #HardButWorthIt
Bible: 1 John 1:6
Bottom Line: Honesty matters more than being liked, and sometimes the truth is worth telling no matter how hard it is.
Week 2: Lies Don’t Last - #TruthWins
Bible: Proverbs 16:8
Bottom Line: Lies never last forever. They may cause you short term wins, but they never produce long term success. Truth will always win against lies.
Week 3: Words Wound - #SpeakLife
Bible: 1 John 3:18
Bottom Line: Our words can either build people up or tear people down. When we aren't honest with people, we shouldn't be surprised when we hurt them.
Week 4: Forgiveness = Freedom - #FreedomFocused
Bible: Colossians 3:12-13
Bottom Line: How you respond matters. When someone lies to us, we must be willing to forgive so we can experience freedom.
