MESSAGE SUMMARY

February 7, 2021

On January 31, Pastor Steve taught that spirit-filled worship breaks strongholds. When God is worshiped in Spirit and truth, it releases God's presence and light and changes everything! Environments change, people experience peace, and darkness flees!  We need to cultivate this kind of worship because enemies flee when God arises! (See Psalm 68:1) We need our lives, homes, and families filled with the presence of God more than ever!  God desires to break our strongholds and live in the glory of His peace and presence! 

On February 7,  Pastor Steve taught on God's beautiful call to sit at Jesus' feet. Jesus is the Father's provision.  He is the manifestation of the Father's grace, power, and love. This means the Father is calling us to put all other things aside and sit at the feet of grace, power, and love. Martha was troubled and worried about many things, but Mary chose to sit at Jesus' feet!  This is Worship! It is to put Jesus above all other things! What a blessing Mary and Martha found! Jesus desires us to put away our worries and sit at His beautiful feet and hear His Word that brings life! Let's discover the same blessing today and choose to sit at Jesus' feet. It's going to make the difference you've been praying for!
