Destiny Family! The family of one of our people has been completely wiped out by hurricane Michael. They are currently homeless and living in their car, so we want to help! We are collecting water, blankets, baby wipes, canned food, hand sanitizer, cots, sleeping bags, flashlights, pet food, sunblock, battery operated fans, bread, tarps for roofs, batteries, coolers, and the like. All donations can be turned in to Mandi Kelloway, who can be contacted at ams2842@gmail.com. She will make sure the items get to the right people. • • • • • #Destiny #DestinyChurch #Jacksonville #Florida #igersjax #igersflorida #Duval #DTWD #Christ #Community #Cause #God #Jesus #Faith #Hope #Love #Truth #Bible #HurricaneMichael #NaturalDisaster #BeTheChurch

Yesterday our pastor was BACK with an incredible message entitled “You’re Going to Need that”! Pastor Chris taught from 2 Timothy 1:11-14 about confidence, gifts, and attacks from the enemy. He said: 1. Guard your gift 2. Protect your confidence 3. Trust what’s entrusted 4. Progress means opposition If you’re getting attacked, it means you possess something good. When you are having an effect, you’ll face an attack. But Jesus! As long as we keep our eyes on Him, we keep moving forward. When we look to Him, we don’t sink. Jesus is the way now and for always, Church. Will you choose Him this week? • • • • • #Jacksonville #Florida #igersjax #igersflorida #Church #DestinyChurch #Christ #Community #Cause #Faith #Hope #Love #Truth #Change #God #Jesus #Pastor #Pastors #Duval #904 #localchurch #localchurchmovent #Local

Yesterday, Dr. Mitch Arbelaez brought the WORD in a message entitled The Cross. Dr. Mitch taught that as Christians, we live in the shadow of the Cross. We haven’t been simply and freely forgiven without a cost, and that cost is Jesus’ perfect sacrifice in death. We have been redeemed for our transformation into the image of Him alone. God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him, but that glory does not come easily because we live in an imperfect world. We must make the choice to seek Jesus in every move we make because His example is what we live for. What will you choose this week? Life in the shadow of the Cross, moving from glory to glory? Or taking the chance of life your own way? • • • • • #Jacksonville #Florida #igersjax #igersflorida #Church #DestinyChurch #Christ #Community #Cause #Faith #Hope #Love #Truth #Change #RedLetters #God #Jesus #Pastor #Pastors #Duval #904 #LocalChurch

Yesterday, Pastor Chris brought the final message in our Red Letters series and it was SO GOOD! He taught on conflict, something that every person comes in contact with and no person resolves accidentally. Pastor Chris preached seven action steps to take if we want to be peacemakers: 1. Make the first move 2. Seek God’s wisdom 3. Start with what’s your fault 4. Listen to their side of the story 5. Speak the truth in love 6. Attack the problem, not the blame 7. Focus on reconciliation, not resolution Peacemaking does not mean avoiding a problem because time does not truly heal all wounds. Jesus never ran from a legitimate conflict and as His followers, we will never change unless our love exceeds our fear of conflict. Do you want to be right or in relationship this week? You are never persuasive when you are abrasive and it is always more satisfying to resolve conflict than dissolve a relationship. People who need love the most are often those who deserve it the least, including us: sinners saved by grace! • • • • • #Jacksonville #Florida #igersjax #igersflorida #Church #DestinyChurch #Christ #Community #Cause #Faith #Hope #Love #Truth #Change #RedLetters #God #Jesus #Pastor #Pastors #Duval #904 #LocalChurch

Yesterday, Pastor Chris Tomlinson brought an incredible sermon as we continued in our Red Letters series entitled "Under Pressure"! He taught that there can be a war going on all around you, but peace residing within you, referencing 2 Corinthians 1:8-10 and the afflictions of Paul. Though he dealt with incredible persecution throughout his entire ministry, Paul remained filled with the peace of God the entire time. His circumstances were filled with chaos, but God was his peace. Pastor Chris said that every person you encounter is either coming out of something difficult, going through something difficult, or about to face something difficult. When we find ourselves under pressure, we should do three things: Recall (Remember the goodness of God) Redirect (Change our thoughts to how He will be faithful) Reinforce (Keep reminding yourself!) As humans, we will face pressures every single day in this sinful world. It is up to us to decided how to handle it. Will we give in to the chaos and be taken by the world? Or will we recall, redirect, and reinforce the faithfulness of God in our lives? • • • • • #Jacksonville #Florida #igersjax #igersflorida #Church #DestinyChurch #Christ #Community #Cause #Faith #Hope #Love #Truth #Change #RedLetters #God #Jesus #Pastor #Pastors #Duval #904 #LocalChurch

Weekend Recap!! Yesterday, Pastor Chris Tomlinson brought an incredible WORD about truly living Jesus’ prayer “on earth as it is in Heaven.” He taught from Mark chapter 9, with the story of the man who brought his son to Jesus. As we looked deeper, it became clear that the man brought his son to the disciples, rather than Jesus Himself. So often, we as followers of Christ do that with our problems. Did we really pray about that thing all day? Or did we just worry about it all day? Did we take it to Jesus? Or just carry it with us to church? God has given dominion, power, and authority to the church to be true agents of change here on the earth. Pastor Chris said that, “We settle for anything when God wants to give us everything.” So what will you choose this week? To walk in the true and real power of Christ or stay comfortable, settling for “anything”? • • • • • #Destiny #DestinyChurch #Jacksonville #Florida #igersjax #igersflorida #Christ #Community #Cause #Faith #Hope #Love #Pastor #God #Jesus #Truth #Change #Duval #DTWD #904 #Local #LocalChurch
