Microsoft Word - Weekly Impact Statement.docx

Using three Bible characters, on Sunday we talked about how to be rescued from rejection. Leah taught us that you can’t manipulate people into loving you or buy your way into their good graces. David taught us that you have to trust God’s anointing and calling on your life even when people like your family reject what God has created you to be and do. Finally, we learned from Jesus that you have to have courage to walk through the crowd and to continue to live for an audience of One. People will come into your life and leave your life, but God will never fail you!
