Sermon Notes

When You Feel Like You Need A Comeback
Pastor Dave Pretlove

1. Realize you are not alone.

2. Remember that God is the God of the comeback.                                           
He loves to redeem, restore and renew.
Joel 2:25; 2 Corinthians 5:17

3. Clarify what real winning is. 
Matthew 22:36-40

Love is the win!

4. Begin by coming back to God. 
Zechariah 1:3; Luke‬ ‭15‬:‭11-24

Scripture To Meditate On

"'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?' Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.'"
Matthew 22:36-40

This Week

Start each morning this week reminding yourself of the goal -- of what real winning is:
"Today's goal is to love God and to love others."

End each day by asking yourself, "Did I love well today? Did I love God and love others today?" You don't have to sit with a journal and write for 20 minutes. Just open your notes app on your phone and write one sentence to reflect. 

A Prayer

"We return unto You, O Lord, that from their wanderings and weariness our souls may rise towards You; leaning on the things You have created and passed on to Yourself, who has made them, through Jesus Christ our Lord."
St. Augustine via Evelyn Underhill's Prayer Book
