On Sunday 17th February we will be having a special service to celebrate 60 years of Hope City Church making a difference in people’s lives. We invite you to join with us at our 9:30am service at Grovely State School Performing Arts Complex to hear from people as they share their personal experience of the difference being part of the church family has made. Afterwards, we invite you to stay around and chat over a special celebration morning tea.
Sunday was such a great day as we chose to shred some of those things that have held us back in the past. I’ve talked to a number of people that walked out with a feeling of freedom – unencumbered by things that have seemed to bind and control in the past.
But God wants more for you than just being free from … He wants you to be free to.
In Galatians 5:1, Paul tells us:
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. (Msg)
Freedom from our past means we can be free to pursue our future. Freedom from our bondages means we are free to live whole lives. And freedom from a curse means you are free to live in God’s favour.
Jesus set you free for a purpose. And part of that purpose is to walk in the favour that He proclaimed on your life from the beginning of His relationship with man.
That’s why our Favour series continues this week. After declaring our freedom from the bondages that have held us back as we’ve moved into 2017, we are now free to walk in the favour and anointing that God has for us.
This Sunday we’ll be praying for everyone in the building. Anointing people with oil and declaring favour for 2017 over your life.
In the middle of our prayer and fasting like this, I’m believing God to come through and do something supernatural in people’s lives, circumstances and hearts. Supernatural favour on people’s health, supernatural favour on peoples work situations, supernatural favour on relationships.
Make sure you’re there this Sunday and come expecting God to impart something of supernatural favour over your life.
Can’t wait to see you on Sunday
