Labeled (Part 2) - Jesus calls you "IN"
As we walk through life, we accumulate labels. Some we choose and others we don’t. Join us August 14-28 for a new series, Labeled, where we’ll discuss how the labels that define your past and present don't have to define your future.

Matthew 4:18-22 (NLT)
One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers—Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew—throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow Me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed Him.

A little farther up the shore he saw two other brothers, James and John, sitting in a boat with their father, Zebedee, repairing their nets. And He called them to come, too. They immediately followed Him, leaving the boat and their father behind.
Ephesians 1:4 (The Voice Version)
GOD CHOSE US TO BE IN a relationship with Him even before He laid out plans for this world…
Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)
Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Once Jesus calls you “in” He calls you to “Be All In”
