How would you feel if Jim Harbaugh (Coach of the 49ers) happened to see you throwing your first football and said, “That’s incredible! You have the potential to become a Hall-of-Famer in the NFL!” Or what if Yoyo Ma heard you playing the cello and said, “Wow, you have the potential to become a concert virtuoso!” I’m guessing a part of us would be ecstatic – “I can’t believe these experts think I have it in me to be so great!” But then on the other hand, I’m sure a part of us would dismiss it as pure fantasy – “They must be delusional!”

This week, we take a look at a passage where the apostle Paul describes the potential of the Christ-follower as becoming “…mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Talk about unparalleled potential! (to be like Christ?!) And as we continue our ONE sermon series, we’ll see how Unity is at the center of reaching our amazing, God-given potential.
