On Claiming Your Birthright

Author: Jim Anderman
Published: April 12, 2018

This Sunday we'll continue our sermon series Dare to Dream, which is all about Creating a God-sized Mission Statement for Your Life. This week's message will focus on "Discovering Your Birthright," or what were you were actually born to do - the task God had in mind for you even before you were born. We will look at what happens when someone gives up their birthright and also see how living into one's birthright leads to an abundance of blessings.

If you want to read ahead, the scriptures are Genesis 25:29-34, Ephesians 4:1-16, and Matthew 16:13-19.

See you Sunday.

Grace & Peace,
Pastor Jim
