MORNING SERVICE

Being Different to Make A Difference (Acts 3:1-26)

What Made the Early Church Different?

They were concerned about the HURTS of people around them.

The overall progression...

•We SEE the hurt.
•We FEEL the hurt.
• We TOUCH the hurt.

The overall truth….

•Those who are most effective in reaching the MANY are those who are most passionate about reaching the ONE.
They were confident in the NAME of the One who saved them.

We know His PERSON.

We trust His POWER.

We show His PRESENCE.

The Bottom Line...
The glory of God is revealed in the SACRIFICIAL care of His people for one another.

MAY 4, 2014

A Life Built on Dynamic Power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:1-8)
OUR PRAYER:

God, awaken our affections…….

The driving force behind the mission of the early church was the PERSON of Jesus Christ.

Jesus is the risen SAVIOR.

Jesus is the exalted LORD.

Jesus is the coming KING.

PASSION for the kingdom is fueled by passion for the King.

….so that we live a life based on …….
The PROMISE of Jesus(1:4-5)
Jesus knows our EVERY NEED and there is always a promise of his provision for them.
The PRIORITY of God (1:6-7)
The Christians priority must be to HEAR God’s voice and to be sensitive to the His Spirit’s GUIDANCE.

The PRIORITY of God (1:6-7)
The Christians priority must be to HEAR God’s voice and to be sensitive to the His Spirit’s GUIDANCE.

The POWER of the Spirit (1:8)

It is possible to be a believer in Jesus Christ and not have the power of the Holy Spirit, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to live a fulfilling, and abundant life without it.

The power a Christian receives is the power to be WITNESSES.

How to Have A Life Built on The Power of the Holy Spirit.

ASK Jesus Christ to come into your life.

Ask the Holy Spirit to “FILL you” with His power.

Ask the Holy Spirit to cause you to WITNESS boldly, CARE sacrificially, and PRAY desperately.

SHARE Jesus without fear.

April 27, 2014

Standing Your Ground! (Ephesians 4: 25-32.)

Giving Ground……….

Too many Christians are giving up ground to SATAN in their lives.

Just a little piece of ground gives the enemy a BEACHEAD to launch an assault.

Too many Christians have already given up TOO MUCH ground.

We have given up PUBLIC ground.

We have given up PARENTAL ground.

We have given up PRAYING ground.

We have given up PREACHING ground.

Too many Christians have given up ground through IGNORANCE!

Dangerously ignorant of SATAN.

Dangerously ignorant of our SAVIOR.

Dangerously ignorant of the SAINT’S standing.

Too many Christians give up ground through SIN.

Sin grieves the SPIRIT.

Sin gives ground to the DEVIL.

Gaining Ground……..

To regain spiritual ground lost to the enemy there must be REPENTANCE.

To regain spiritual ground lost to the enemy there must be RENEWAL.

Guarding Ground……

You must walk in the TRUTH.

You must enter into COMBAT with the enemy.

You must ATTACK the Devil’s strongholds.

You must TAKE BACK that which he has taken from you

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Be committed to Christian COMMUNITY.

Hold tight to your HOPE.

April 20, 2014 Resurrection Sunday

“The Meaning of Easter’s Open Door!” (Mk 16:1-8)

Easter opens the door……

To escape our PAST.

Our record of sin, failures, scars of the past, all the things we are ashamed of will be FORGIVEN.

To ETERNAL LIFE that can never be taken away.

Life beyond the grave is SECURE in Christ.

The security of eternal life changes the way we face our own MORTALITY.

The security of eternal life changes the way we deal with the DEATH of those we love.

To a new and bold CONFIDENCE in our daily living.

We are assured of God’s FORGIVENESS.

We are assured of God’s POWER.

We are assured of God’s TRIUMPH.

“The Day of Cheers and Tears”(Luke 19:28-45)

The CHEERS of the crowd.

In the past Jesus entered Jerusalem as a HUMBLE King.

Jesus entered not as a revolutionary, but Jesus was a redeemer of PEACE.

In the future Jesus will enter Jerusalem as CONQUERING king.

PERSONAL LESSONS:

Even if feel INSIGNIFICANT Master can use you!

God created you with a special PLAN for you to execute and fulfill.

Don’t let anyone DISCOURAGE you from praising the Lord!

The TEARS of the King. (41)

Jesus weeps because of superficial BELIEF and SHALLOW commitment.

Jesus weeps because of spiritual BLINDNESS.

PERSONAL LESSONS:

1. You’ll never know peace until you SURRENDER Jesus!

2. Rejection of Jesus leads to terrible JUDGMENT.

There will be ETERNAL separation from God, heaven, and loved ones who are in Heaven.

3. What makes Jesus cry should also BREAK our hearts!

You Have All You Will Ever Need. (John 6:25-35)

The Hunger of Our Souls…

Our deepest craving is not for something but SOMEONE.

Christ alone can GUARANTEE our satisfaction.

The basis of His guarantee…

The initiative of the FATHER.

The obedience of the SON.

The promise of RESURRECTION.

Our prayer…God, INCREASE our desire for You
