Real Christianity Part 5

Identifying The Holy Spirit’s Voice Romans 8:14 (ERV) The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them. We will never identify the voice of God if we’re not spending time with God. 1 Corinthians 2:9-12 (NLT) “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” But we know these things because God has revealed them to us by his Spirit, and his Spirit…

Real Christianity Part 4

Learning to Walk In this series we are addressing three “big” questions: Am I experiencing what I should experience with God? Are my prayers being answered? Am I getting the results I should in my walk with God? Romans 8:14 (ERV) The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them. Being spirit-led is vulnerable. It’s a different way to live. It takes some falling to figure out! That is the reason for grace. We will never…

Real Christianity Part 2

Being Spirit-Led In this series we are addressing three “big” questions: Am I experiencing what I should experience with God? Are my prayers being answered? Am I getting the results I should in my walk with God? Am I being flesh dominated or am I being spirit-led. Romans 8:14 (ERV) The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them. The world is led by the flesh. Religion is led by the law. God’s children are led…

Real Christianity Part 1

Connecting with God I want to start this series with three “big” questions: Am I experiencing what I should experience with God? Are my prayers being answered? Am I getting the results I should in my walk with God? All these things find fulfillment in a relationship with God. Real Christianity is experiencing God, seeing answers to prayers, and getting results, but religion gets in the way. Mark 7:7-8 (AMP) In vain (fruitlessly and without profit) do they worship Me,…

Identity & Relationships Part 4

A New Spiritual Species Colossians 1:12-14 (NKJV) Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and [has] conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. God has, God has, God has, we have! The gospel is the good news of what we HAVE…

Identity & Relationships Part 3

Forming the Right Identity 1 John 3:1-2 (NIV) See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are . . . . We are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. There are four main building blocks of identity:…

Identity & Relationships Part 2

How Identity Builds Psalm 8:4-6 (GNT) What are human beings, that you think of them; mere mortals, that you care for them? Yet you made them inferior only to Yourself; you crowned them with glory and honor. You appointed them rulers over everything you made; you placed them over all creation. God never intended for you to struggle or be defeated. He appointed you to rule and reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. You were created inferior ONLY…

Identity & Relationships Part 1

How Identity Destroys Genesis 1:26-28 (NIV) God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said…

We’ve learned that God has strategically placed you in the lives of specific people who God has anointed you to impact. Build a personal relationship. Love them with God’s love.

Ordained for Impact Part 3

Strategically Placed for Impact God’s plan to change the world is for every Christian to change their world. God’s plan for people receiving Jesus is you! Last week we learned that the average person has about 12 people in their sphere of influence—people we consistently spend an hour or more with over the course of a week. God has strategically placed you in these people’s lives because you’re the one anointed to reach them. God has used your passion to…

Ordained for Impact Part 2

Where Do I Start? Ephesians 2:10 (KJV) We are His [God’s] workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. The way we shine as a light for the Lord is through good works—tangibly meeting people’s needs. Matthew 5:14-16 (TLB) You are the world’s light—a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds…
