   STAY ON SCRIPT! (Numbers 20:7-13)  Preface: Life can be challenging, circumstances can careen out of control, and at times things can be downright tough. During these moments, we need a survival kit to help us. The Survival Kit series seeks to provide us with tools that will shield us in the storms, succour us in the valleys, and safeguard us from our enemies. In Part 1, entitled Stay On Script!, we will discover that God has written an eternal script for our lives; however, at times, people, the devil, and even our own decisions can throw us off that script. Harnessing...

   CHURCH: RESETTING OUR DESTINY! (Hab. 2:14)  Preface: The final aspects of The Great Reset deal with perhaps what is critical for all Christians; preparing for the Lord’s return, finishing the assignment entrusted to us, and entering eternity.

For this, every believer must prepare and...

   CHURCH: RESETTING OUR DUTY! (Gen. 1:28)  Preface: A strategic aspect of The Great Reset is understanding life disciplines and their relationship to the church.
