The Gospel - Enabler of Relationships
2024.01.07 - Week 60 • 1Timothy 1:1-17
The healing for the world, our nation, our church, and us rests on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Are you able to share this Good News?
God calls us to change. No change means eternal death. God is known to soften the hardest of hearts. Can He change yours?
We are loved deeply, even though we do not deserve it.
We love deeply because of the depth of that irrational love.
Giving up on trials is easy and can mean permanent failure. Yet, the grace of God draws us to obedience, to go after the impossible.
Children of God will face trials, but the victory is always theirs.
Those who experienced the love of God expect pains and waiting. They go through all kinds of crazy trials and yet, know God is good.
Genesis 41:54-57; Genesis 42:1-5
Worship is to enter the Most Holy Place to have an intimate conversation, encounter, and touch of God. Do you want this?
What did God call us to, and how are we doing in them?
As we reflect, let’s turn to God for help.
Your calling is meant to be impossible. Go fulfill it
Because there is great joy at the other end. Don’t miss your glorious calling.
God is doing great things. Preparation is required to take part in them. Are you Ready to Change?
Chasing money? Relationships? Many pursuits crumble and do not last.
Build on the right foundation, and get what you need, and for eternity.
True relationship is defined by the endurance to stay through trials. How true is your relationship with God and others?
God seems to be irrational. Maybe we need to imitate His irrational goodness.
God seeks just one person to cover many from destruction. Are you that person?
Jesus tells us to make disciples. He calls us to be the salt and light. We can’t do that looking out only for ourselves.
You need to encounter God yourself. Every day, every moment.
Spiritual growth takes steps of faith and many failures. God forgives you every time you fail. He wants you to grow.
The King only disciplines His children to be different (holy). Are you grateful? Are you in?
Christians are dependent on God, and their lives are crazy. Are you in?
How can you know what to do? God can guide you, but what does it take to get His guidance and provisions?
God knows everything about you: your past, present and future...and He loves you and accepts you just as you are. Would you trust Him?
Jesus welcomes us to His rest. We can let go of our burdens to Him.
Satan always attacks leaders because their fall means fall of many. Children of God despise sin and will fight for holiness.
Christians are to be considered crazy. That’s what leaders are!
Do people find you normal, or Gung Ho?
Leaders trust God to finish the work He began through them. No turning back.
Accomplishing great things require the power and drive that comes from God. Do you know the depth of God's love for you?
Our calling is nothing less than a total transformation.
300 vs 135,000. Guess who wins. Nothing is impossible for God.
The way you live your life matters. The things you do matter. Do you care? Be accountable.
Life seeming random, but with world-changing results. Faith produces action. What are you doing?
To accomplish anything meaningful with our lives, the power of God is needed: in life, work, relationships, and anything else.
Our relationship with God was restored because of Jesus' death, and proven by His resurrection
How can we pray a blessing for others, heal the sick, raise the dead, and provide for the people in need?
Sanctification, because we are God's children
Jesus is not after the crowd. He is after You. Not after little of everyone, but the entire you. Would you believe and follow?
How to have so much that you can be a blessing to others
Expect the unexpected to complete your calling.
How God wishes to relate with us with no agenda
Church planting for our life transformation and to reach thousands (and beyond)
Agree with God in His direction for you. Agree with one another, in deep relationships, for their growth and fulfilling God's calling for them.
Our lives on earth is to be “in” the world, though we recognize that we are not “of” it.
