Give, and it will be given to you. You will have more than enough. It can be pushed down and shaken together and it will still run over as it is given to you. The way you give to others is the way you will receive in return.”  (Luke 6:38 NLV)

Many people have great potential that is never realized -- goals we never achieve, aspirations we never reach, visions we never see accomplished -- all because our potential never gets unleashed.  We never take the time or intentionality to cultivate and give attention to the things we need to do to turn promise in fulfillment, possibility into completion, potential into reality, and so we never achieve or reach all that we can be.

And yet, God gives us various tools to help us do this -- “means of grace” we call them in the Wesleyan Christian tradition, that can assist us in reaching our full calling.  Our weekly themes even align precisely with our own mission/purpose as a church here at East Cobb UMC:
            ● Gathering UP – the power of Christian community
            Growing UP – the power of understanding & practicing
            Going UP – the power of serving and sharing Christ
                        with others
            Giving UP – the power of surrender of both ourselves &
                        our possessions to God

I pray that you will join me and your fellow sisters and brothers in Christ as we explore just a few of these throughout the month of October in our journey to “Unleash” the “Potential” (U.P.) that’s within each of us and become the people God wants us to be!  Remember, God  loves you and I do, too!
