Well we're starting a new adventure this weekend that I'm calling the No-Regrets Challenge and I'm so proud of you Woodlands Church because you're leading hundreds of churches around the nation in this No-Regrets Challenge as we learn how to break free from the past and move boldly into the future and live each and every day like it matters because it really does matter and I am really excited to journey along side you over the next month and a half to Easter to really prepare our hearts for God to do miracles in our lives and the key is to break free from past regrets. Now some of our regrets are over things that we've done in the past that we're not too proud of that we wish we could go back in time and change, but I would say our greatest regrets are usually those opportunities we let slip through our grasp, those chances that we had, but we didn't take advantage of those opportunities and to really live with this moment on with no regrets we have to do something drastic. We have to make a radical change and break free from the road of regret that the masses are traveling on and really in life you only get two choices. Number one is drastically change directions or number two go down the road of regret. When you come to the end of your life and you look back, you'll be overwhelmed with regret and I'm afraid that's the way it's going to be for so many people, but it doesn't have to be that way for us and we can leave our regrets and break free from them and walk boldly into the future that God has for us.
Now, this radical transformation is talked about in Romans 12:2. It's our key passage for the whole adventure. So, would you stand in honor of God's Word and I want you to read it out loud with me this morning and if you're at one of our satellite campuses or you're worshipping online or you're here at the Fellowship Campus we're all one church and we read God's Word together. So, just read this out loud with me. "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
