Key Verses:

  • 1 Corinthians 12:14-20
  • 2 Kings 2

Key Thoughts:

  • In 2 Kings 2, Elisha promises that he will never leave his mentor Elijah. On a journey to three locations, there were many opportunities for Elisha to jump ship. Once they reached their final destination, the Jordan River, a double portion anointing was given to Elisha because he didn't get inconsistent when it got inconvenient.
  • If you remain in place and stay resilient, you will be used mightily.
  • Don't just get together, stay together. Destiny rises and falls on consistency.
  • Don't miss your destiny because you left. You never know when destiny will come knocking at your door.
  • There's no question that the body needs you, the question is if you'll stay put. A big toe isn't used while sitting down, but when you stand up, it has purpose because it stayed put, even when it wasn't being used.

Key to Flourish in Unity:

o   Unity – Philippians 2:1-11

  • God elevated Jesus because He humbled himself.
  • Hold loosely to position and tightly to purpose.
  • Pressing against pride and embracing humility will lead to unity.

o   Love – 1 Corinthians 13

  • Right after writing about unity (1 Cor. 12), Paul writes about love (1 Cor. 13) showing us the path to unity – love fights for unity.
  • Our love for one another will get the attention of others.

o   Fight – Ephesians 4:3, Philippians 1:27

  • Anything worth having takes fight (relationships, serving God, forgiveness).
  • Courage is MUST when you choose to follow Jesus.
  • The church isn't built on those that come and go, but those that fight to stay.
