2017 Rally #6 - Paul Poteat

Paul continues our theme of “Greater” by explaining how Jesus has created a Greater Life for us. God has given us a great purpose in life; therefore our time here on earth has great impact for eternity. Paul expounds on this idea through Matthew 4:19-20:

And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.

This model exemplifies how we can fulfill this purpose with our lives.

  1. Follow me (Jesus)

  2. Die to self

  3. Start Small

Paul left us with the challenge: “Who is 1 person you could pray for or talk to about Jesus?”

2017 Rally #5 - Paul Poteat

Paul Poteat shares what Greater Authenticity looks like by walking through John 4:27-30.

Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” They went out of the town and were coming to him.

There are three things we can see through this text about the faith we should have in Jesus:

  1. Simplicity

  2. Authenticity

  3. Bravery

The woman at the well show cased all three of these attributes and Paul exhorts us to showcase authenticity in our walk with Christ.

Jesus loves me this I know...or do I?  What is it like to experience the love of Christ, to know that you are forgiven, to feel the power of grace?  There are many ideas and truths that you probably attest to, that say you believe, but you don't really live in light of these, you don't experience these things do you?  Well, you're not the only one, I'm in the same boat.  So, let's engage not simply knowing truth, but feeling it.
