Chinese Checkers, God and Me: Matthew 16 21-23

June 30th, 2014


Matthew 16 21-23

Through Matthew 16 21-23, we find reaching our personal goals, our dreams, maybe even our destinies becomes a real possibility when we begin acting more like Jesus and doing what is best for us rather than facing off with opponents.

In this month’s message we take a look at Matthew 16 21-23 to discover how “playing our own game” rather than doing what we think others expect from us can help us reach our potential.
