Power Play

One Small Step (August 19, 2015)

Power is a good thing. And in most cases, more power is a better thing. We want our phones to be powered up, our cars to be powerful, our laptops to be powered on, and our football teams made of power players. But those aren't the only places that power is important to us. We all want to have power in relationships too. Maybe you've never thought about it that way but chances are you want people to listen to you, to pay attention to you, or to care about what you think. That's power. And whether you realize it or not, every relationship you have comes with some power or influence. Every interaction with another person is an opportunity to use your power, even if you feel like you don't have any. During this series we're going to talk about two people from the New Testament who looked at power differently than anyone else: Paul and Jesus. In their stories, we find that, no matter who is in control, there is always a power play we can make on behalf of others.
