Three things that Jesus is to us that we can be to be to others, Pastor Curt Vignery, Oct 4, 2015

– Have you ever needed to be picked up because you’re down? Many times people need help.
– God is the one who’s always there to pick us up. The Holy Spirit in our life is not going to allow us to go into that funk.
– What does is look like for us to call one another up?
– Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.
– Three things that Jesus is to us that we can be to be to others. God is always there to help us. He sent His Son to help us, and He sent the Holy Spirit who is called the Helper. Romans 12:9-21, James 2:15-16
