Redeeming the Difficult

REDEEMING THE DIFFICULT 2 Timothy 2:23-26 (NLT) Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they…

What Matters Most Part 2

OUR LOVE WALK (GOD, SELF & PEOPLE) Philippians 1:9 (CP) This I pray: that your love [agape] may keep growing until you have such understanding and keen perception that you can sort out the truly important matters. Only agape love can bring clarity to what matters most! Matthew 22:36-40 (NLT) “Teacher, which is the most important commandment.” Jesus replied, “’You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the…

What Matters Most Part 1

CHRIST IN HUMAN HEARTS Philippians 1:9 (CP) This I pray: that your love may keep growing until you have such understanding and keen perception that you can sort out the truly important matters. I want you to understand what matters most! What Mattered to the Pharisees The Bible mentions THREE main things the Pharisees loved. Money. Pharisees loved money! Money drove their decisions.

Cry of the Martyrs Part 4

What is Still Not Surrendered? God NEVER asks something FROM you. God ONLY asks that which is FOR you. With God, it’s not about giving something up, it’s about gaining something better! THOSE WHO SURRENDER – Abraham Genesis 22:2-3 (CW) God said, “Take your son, the only one you have, the one you love so much, and go with him three days’ travel to Mount Moriah. There at the top of the mountain I want you to offer up Isaac…

Cry of the Martyrs Part 3

Who Am I Identifying With? Do I want to identify with those in persecution or their persecutors? If I keep my witness to myself, I’m identifying with persecutors. If I share Jesus today, I’m identifying with those in persecution. The church in persecution understands consistent faithfulness. Matthew 4:19 (NKJV) “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” . . . I will transform you into men who catch people for God. – TPT If we’re NOT catching people,…

Cry of the Martyrs Part 2

What Am I Living For? Philippians 1:21 (NIV) To live is Christ and to die is gain. If you’re not denying “self” in order to serve Christ, you’re not “living for Christ,” you’re “living for self.” The early Church was beaten, stoned, thrown to the lions, tortured, and then went away rejoicing that they were considered worthy to suffer for the name of Jesus Christ. What where they living for? The American Church: The best life we can have on…

Cry of the Martyrs Part 1

What Am I Willing To Suffer? Acts 9:15-16 (LDB) Go! I have chosen [you] to carry My name before the Gentiles, their kings, and the people of Israel. Now I will show [you] how much [you] must suffer because of the stand [you] will take for me. We are often presented with the blessings of God, without ever mentioning suffering for God. Don’t misunderstand me. God wants you blessed! 3 John 1:2 (KJV) I wish above all things that thou…

The Lessons of Jacob Marley

THE LESSONS OF JACOB MARLEY 1. “I wear the chains I forged in life.” What we do here, determines our position there! Hebrews 9:27 (NET) People are appointed to die once, and then to face judgment. We’re either storing up treasure or we’re storing up judgment. Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 (TLB) For the living at least know that they will die! But the dead know nothing [about their future] . . . .Whatever they did in their lifetimes—loving, hating, envying—is long gone,…

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…
