Pastor Glenn Shields - TOPIC #1 - It’s Not About You – Part I
TOPIC #2 - It’s Not About You – Part II
God’s goal is not to make sure you’re happy. Life is not about your being comfortable and happy and successful and pain free. It’s about becoming the man God has called you to be. Unfortunately, we will rarely hear that message proclaimed today. More reason to say it again: Life is not about you! Learn the value, blessings and how to boast about your weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell more richly in you. Learn how to embrace this fact when I am weak, then I am strong.” STRONG men getting STRONGER!
