So… What’s a Goonie?
“So the point here… is that the people who receive the kingdom, treasure it more than everything else. You don’t buy it. You get it freely because you want it more than you want anything else… In other words, there is a condition for having the kingdom… but the condition is not wealth or power or intelligence or eminence. The condition is that you prize the kingdom more than you prize anything else.” – John Piper
The man understood the true value of the treasure he’d found. Do we?
“THE GOONIES” IS PLURAL
SEE YOUR LIFE AS A TEAM UP MOVIE
WE NEED EACH OTHER
OUR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES EVEN OUT.
Only when we know them and own them does it begin to work.
THIS IS OUR TIME
Mikey’s doing three things…
1. HE’S CALLING THEM BACK TO THE ADVENTURE
2. IT’S NOW OR NEVER
3. IT’S NOT ABOUT WHAT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED, IT’S ABOUT WHAT CAN HAPPEN NOW.
This is our time and we can spend it wondering…
How this happened
Why it happened
What should have happened
What could have happened
… OR we can spend it making something happen.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN…
• Be part of a Small Group
• Serve somewhere
• Go through Growth Track
• Invest in ministry
• Reach someone
