S t r e t c h i n g  Exercise

Jesus said you can’t put new wine into old wineskins.  Wine was kept in animal skins. Old wineskins dry up and lose their elasticity, their ability to stretch, grow, change and expand in God’s capacity. You have to expand your capacity to increase your influence for God.

 Stretch Forth – action – stretching has the tendency to cause pain. When you stretch you are working muscles. So in order for us to stretch ourselves to what God asks us to become, it’s going to require some pain on our part both as a church and personally as well. Do you know how you make a muscle stronger? You have to tear down some of the cells by over-committing your muscle. It’s time to take a healthy look at the amount of spiritual commitment you are currently undertaking. Faith, Prayer and Fasting – we must crucify the flesh and sometimes that commitment is painful because the flesh does not want to participate.  We reap what we sow, your return will only be as great as your investment. When you enlarge your capacity for God by stretching your investment of faith, prayer, and fasting – God will expand your influence for what He wants to do in and thru your life as an individual and as a church!  Come on let’s do some  s t r e t c h i n g  exercises!!
