Discovering Your Potential

(This was spoken on April 3, 2005. )

Potential. It’s something that’s really hard to see.

You can guess about it, but you’re not always right. Would you guess that these people would be a success?

And, you know what? The hardest place to see potential is in yourself. It’s hard to see your own potential.

Today, I want to take a look at our potential as a group of friends trying to be the church and also look at our potential as individuals.

You might be thinking…

How are we going to see our potential today if it’s so hard to see it in ourselves?

Here’s the trick.

The best place to look for your potential is not in you. The best place to see your potential is in God.

That’s because your ultimate potential comes from him, not from yourself!

2 Cor. 1:20 says, “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ.”

I want to start by looking at a person who found his potential, not in himself, but in God.
