Sustaining Wholeness – Growing in Favor

October 25, 2020   /   Rev. Drew Strecker   /   Matthew 16:13-28   /   Crosspointe Alliance Church

Psychological Capital

  • With Sustaining Wholeness, we move to the third level of stewardship.
  • Today we will be talking more about Psychological Capital
  • We ask the question: How much of the soul in creativity, knowledge and emotional capacity do we have to invest?
  • Our emotional & intellectual capacity along with our sense of self (often referred to as personality) and ability to embrace & negotiate the negative, and uncertainty of life all have to do with our soul or psychological health. When we grow our soul health we grow in favor with God & people

Revealing the Messiah

Keys to the Kingdom

Seeing What is to Come

Dealing with Self to save my Soul

Scott Peck, in The Road Less Traveled (Touchstone, 1978), began by saying, “Life is difficult.” And then he said, “Once we truly know that life is difficult—once we truly understand and accept it—then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”

Embracing the Negative & Uncertain

  • Recognizing that pain and bad things will happen (Peter)
  • Integrated character does not avoid negatives
  • Facing into /leaning into the storm (Jesus set His face like flint)
  • Processing through unprocessed bad experiences
  • Recoverability
  • Ability to separate from outcomes
  • Ownership of responsibility
  • Underlying sickness
  • Avoid pain, more problems
  • Confronting problems and people productively instead of being people pleasers.
  • Staying connected after the confrontation
  • Let go of the bad stuff 
  • Choosing your Problems
  • Facing the Negative thru Revelation
  • To face negative and uncertain things is hard
  • Revealing Himself to us — “He’s calling us to walk out of the dark, He’s given us resurrected hearts”
