This weekend was our annual MVP Weekend at C3! Fourteen years ago this weekend, that we had our kick off service at Cleveland Elementary School in 1998! It is incredible to see all that God has done in the last 14 years!
This weekend we continued Destiny, our series based on the life of Joseph. If you missed this weekend’s services, I encourage you to watch it or listen to it here. Also,if you were not at C3 this weekend, or if you would like to give your tithe or offering, you can give online by clicking here.
Matt spoke a powerful message on the next challenge that Joseph faced, the prison challenge.
Genesis 39:19-23, “Potiphar was furious when he heard his wife’s story about how Joseph had treated her. 20 So he took Joseph and threw him into the prison where the king’s prisoners were held, and there he remained. 21 But the Lord was with Joseph in the prison and showed him his faithful love. And the Lord made Joseph a favorite with the prison warden. 22 Before long, the warden put Joseph in charge of all the other prisoners and over everything that happened in the prison. 23 The warden had no more worries, because Joseph took care of everything. The Lord was with him and caused everything he did to succeed.”(NLT)
Romans 5:3-5, “Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”(NIV)
3 KEYS TO EXPERIENCING YOUR DESTINY and passing the prison challenge:
What is perseverance? It is enduring through the storms of life. It’s being patient for a long time.
Perseverance – involves fighting the battle while you’re waiting with contentment. Perseverance demands that you fight the good fight of faith while you wait.
2. CHARACTER – integrity matters. Joseph had integrity when no one was looking.
3. HOPE – Real hope only comes from Jesus.
Romans 5:3-5, “…suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”
