Chestnut Ridge Church
Stuck - Part 5
There will come a time where each of us will experience what it's like to be "stuck" spiritually. Maybe we don't feel as close to God as we used to, or maybe we feel we aren't growing in our faith. What if we could get a jump start?...a bit of help to get moving again? The Stuck series will explore five of the main catalystsGod uses to grow our faith,no matter the season in which we find ourselves.

Stuck - Part 5 [February 4, 2018] Tim Haring

Problem: We don't realize that serving in ministry helps us grow

Solution: Serving brings out the best in us















Catalysts:

Week 1 in this series: Practical teaching
Week 2 in this series: Providential relationships
Week 3 in this series: Private disciplines
Week 4 in this series: Pivotal circumstances
“Life is full of surprises—some good, some not so good. Each unexpected event that comes our way is actually a divine opportunity to know God more. When we are able to find God in the midst of life’s pivotal circumstances, our faith is strengthened.”
– Andy Stanley

God changes us when we allow him to use us
“We often experience Emmanuel—God with us—through our obedience. Jesus might be saying to us, “Just bring me what you have, and I’ll work with that. Bring me your limited education, your lack of experience, your fear, your insecurity, and watch what I can do.”
–Andy Stanley
God changes us when we allow him to use us
Lessons for us:

• God uses people to accomplish his purposes
• We don’t always see ourselves as God does
Lessons for us:

• God wants all of us to serve within the body of Christ
• As we serve, we grow
