Moving Toward the Last Days or a God-given Revival?

The revival of the Great Awakening had three powerful dynamics:

1.       Prayer   2.  Preaching on Justification by Grace alone   3.  All churches uniting at Communion

“Justification is the article by which the church stands and falls” (Martin Luther).

Justification is a doctrinal legal (forensic) term that means to be declared righteous. The doctrine is laid out in the books of Romans and 1 Corinthians, among others (Genesis 15; Psalm 32; Galatians; Titus, etc.). Justification, as a doctrine, is unique to Christianity. The doctrine of justification holds that the believer is declared righteous, his sins are removed, and Christ’s righteousness is imputed unto him by grace alone: the believer now has right legal standing before God. No other religious system has such.

But to him who does not work, but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted (imputed) for righteousness (Romans 4:5).

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).

He believed in the LORD; and He accounted (imputed) it to him for righteousness (Gen 15:6).

 

Imputation: The righteousness that Jesus earned as He lived a perfect moral life is given (imputed) to the believer by grace through faith.

Gen. 15:6 And Abraham believed God and it was accounted (imputed) for righteousness…

Psalm 32:1-5 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit…. 5 I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Rom. 3:28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.

Rom. 4:3 For what does the Scripture say? "And Abraham believed God, and it was accounted (imputed) to him as righteousness."

Rom. 4:5 "But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted (imputed) as righteousness."

Rom. 4:11, "And … all those who believe … that righteousness might be imputed to them also."

Rom. 5:1 "Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,"

Rom. 5:9 "Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him."

Luke 18:13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified…

1 Cor. 1:30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and justification [righteousness] and sanctification and redemption.

Gal.3:6 Even so Abraham believed God, and it was accounted (imputed) to him as righteousness."

Gal. 3:24 "Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, that we may be justified by faith."

Phil. 3:9 "And may be found in Him, not having a justification of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith."

Exodus 3:14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

John 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

John 4:26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you I am He.”

At Abundant Life, We’re All about People

 

Come as you are - Get a lift this Sunday!

We’re all about people because God is all about people. One of the ways we express our love for Him is through our love for people, and we do that by helping each person who comes to Abundant Life grow in their relationship with the Lord.

It begins with our vision to see people saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered, and serving. Everything we do revolves around those seven things. And it all starts with our weekend services. We meet on Sunday at 11 am and 6 pm with a 9:30 am Service starting in March. 524 Crockett St. next to the US Post Office.

 

We are new, fresh, and exciting!

 

Your Place at Abundant Life

 

Church is so much more than a service on the weekend. It’s about connecting with other people, growing in your faith, and building a strong foundation for your family.

Since we are new, in a church our size, it’s easy to get to know friends fast. Because of that, we’re a church that focuses on love and Jesus. We also raise up and train future leaders within our congregation.

Our mission is to help each person at Abundant Life believe in Jesus, belong to family, become a follower, and build God's kingdom. We want every person to have a chance to experience what God has for them—whether it’s through serving or getting plugged into one of our ministries.

 

Come as you are – Everyone is invited!

 

Abundant Life Community Church

Our Story

Abundant Life Community Church is about new beginnings – a new church and a fresh start for the future. Abundant Life Community Church launched in the Spring of 2014 and birthed in 2015. Our story began back in 2014 when Lead Pastor Mike Robinson and Robert Wright began to feel God leading them to start a church in Granbury, Texas. In the weeks and months that followed, God began to open doors, stir hearts, and gather the close-knit community that would become Abundant Life Community Church.

 

Several families have even commuted from Arlington, Glen Rose, or Fort Worth and beyond--some have fallen in love with Granbury and moved to the Hood County area to help us start this church.  It’s been a truly remarkable thing to watch!

 

The story of Abundant Life Community Church is one of dreaming, belonging, creating and loving. We really love Jesus and we truly love one another! Abundant Life Church Granbury is centered on Jesus and anchored on God’s word. It is a story that does not settle for the status quo, but looks to the future with hope. And it’s a story we want you to be a part of. 

 

Come join us on Sundays at 11:00am or 6:00 PM. We are now meeting each week in our facility located just off Granbury Square, right next to the US Post Office.

Biblical Ethics: The Commandments of God

God's word reveals the best ethics and morals

Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long (Psalms 119:97).

Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness (1 John 3:4).

But about the Son He says, "Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever... You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness” (Hebrews 1:8-9).

We know that the law is good if one uses it properly (1 Timothy 1:8).

What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! ... So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good... We know that the law is spiritual (Romans 7:7-14).

If you love me, you will keep my commandments. Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him (John 14:15 & 21).

 

The moral commandments of Scripture must be the standard for normative ethics. Biblical ethics are proscriptive (what one ought not to do) as well as prescriptive (what one ought to do) of normative human conduct, and should be the ground for our rule of law: deontological. Deontological is obligatory inasmuch as it is the moral will of God in real-life situations: explicit actions that are based on its broad principals. Thus all persons are obligated to affirm and embrace the commandments of God in establishing laws and in living their lives.

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands (2 John 6).

Sources:

·         Old Testament (613 laws/commandments) New Testament (1050 laws/commandments).

·         Ten Commandments (The Decalogue).

·         Love God and Love your neighbor.

·         Golden rule: Matthew 7:12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

·         Sermon on the Mount Matt. Chapters 5-7.

 

Law/Gospel – Works/Grace: Distinct But Not Separate

And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work (Romans 11:6).

The predominant functions of the moral law and God’s commandments:

I. Restrain Evil.

II. Reveal Sin/our Depravity.

III. Assist in the sanctification of Christians.

One must not confuse and commingle law and grace: God’s commands with God’s promises (Romans 11:6). The law is not just the Old Testament inasmuch as the Old Testament contains law; furthermore, grace is not just the New Testament for the New Testament contains law. The law demands works and accuses. The law commands and demands. It’s what God expects out of His creatures in our thoughts, words, and works. For it is not the ten recommendations, it is the Ten Commandments. It is rigorous. The law doesn’t say just do the best you can. God does not grade on a curve. The final requires perfection or one does not enter heaven. It demands one hundred percent, every moment, in thought, word, and deed. The good news is Christ has expiated the transgressions against the law for His people by grace through faith. The greatest good news is that Christ has made satisfaction for the sins, the mistakes, and the commandment breaking of His people.

 

Morality may keep you out of jail, but it takes the blood of Jesus Christ to keep you out of hell (Spurgeon).

 

The Gospel has attained and acquired for all Christians, without any works or merit on our part, the forgiveness of sins and the imputed righteousness of Christ that avails before God and provides eternal life. The law is written on our hearts and the Gospel comes from outside us from God’s grace (Galatians 3:10-12). Scripture tells us the law is everything that demands perfect obedience to God and pronounces God’s curses on all transgressors (Romans 3:19). The law of God renders all the world guilty before God’s holiness and reveals the knowledge of sin (Romans 3:20-23). How can one avoid Hell? Jesus taught that it is very simple, “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). Do that every day and live.

 Recall what Jesus said, “It is harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven than a camel to go through an eye of a needle.” In that particular instance the disciples were very perplexed. They said, “Lord who then can be saved?” Jesus responded by revealing to them, “With man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Heaven is infinitely beyond the reach of sinful men. Men need God to do the impossible. And God has accomplished this through Christ and His vicarious death and resurrection. It is all solely by grace. Deny Christ and it is impossible for an imperfect man to be accepted into a perfect heaven. One must have their imperfections and sins removed by the cross of God’s Son.

 The nontheistic worldview not only commits epistemic irresponsibility, it brings despair that grows in its claimants. The unbeliever Byron screams in horror on his death bed as he hollers in delusion that his bedspread is on fire. Voltaire rants and raves about being cursed and forsaken and damned for his rejection of Christ during his last days. We have been spared the horrible last words of the bombastic atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair when her atheist partner murdered her and her atheistic grandchildren for some cash. Yet her final utterances must have been filled with anguish. A man in London heard a lecture on anti-theism and socialism. He went home and wrote that the Bible was the greatest possible deception. Then he shot himself. Without God, His love and law, man has no purpose and it’s easy for him to fall into depression and despair. This leads to horror in death and eternity.

 The grace of God freely gives peace to believers and salvation freely given to the sinner (Romans 1:16-17, 10:15; Acts 20:24; Ephesians 1:13, 6:15). The law is distinct from grace but not separate, there is a unity within the diversity. Distinct but not separate. Both the law and grace are in the whole of Scripture. The two pertain to men and women and must be taught side by side with distinction within the oneness of Scripture. Christians are to uphold the law with zeal and with truth through the grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Some contemporary Christians believe the law is not to be upheld. They argue that we do not need to obey the commandments in today’s dispensation. These are antinomians. Anti means: against. The definition of noumos: Law. Hence an antinomian is against the law. If there is no moral law, there can be no hell and no punishment for lawbreakers. If the law is gone, you get rid of the absolute standards of right and wrong. You also get rid of hell, and you get rid of the need of the Savior too. If we are not lawbreakers we do not need to be saved.

The Life of a Christian

To live a life of obedience before God you must:

 

1. Admit that the flesh is weak (Matt 26:41).

2. Repent. Turn from your sin and error.

3. Pray for power and wisdom to overcome temptation and sin.

4. Avoid instruments, places, people, and circles that tempt you and where you previously fell.

5. Keep your focus on Jesus, His Word, and His victory

(1 Corinthians 15:56; Hebrews 12:1-2).

The church of Jesus Christ has plenty of programs, plenty of buildings, books, and trinkets. But what we need most are trained, mounted troops of God. Soldiers trained for sudden, daily charges against the gapping breaches in the enemy’s line opened daily by the Word of God. The church has advanced through slow, pounding bombardments as it has opened hospitals, orphanages, outreaches, and care centers. We must become loving troops: enthusiastic, compassionate, and merciful. Exalting the person of Christ our Prophet, Priest, and King should be our passion. He is the unstoppable juggernaut of the church.

Christians must become impassioned disciples to run with Jesus. Our moral duty is to put off all the excuses, indifference, sloppiness, slothfulness, slouchiness, laziness, and sluggishness. One can’t be a Christian sluggard. A Christian can’t afford to be droopy, duff, or negligent, but diligent in obedience and worship. It is about honoring God as God.

If you are weak and weary:

 

•   Pray to God for power and grace.

•   Praise and glorify God Almighty.

•   Hence, if you are battle weary: Pray and praise.

The Old Rugged Cross

Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved (Psalm 55:22).

Some Blessings By Grace are to Be Given Away

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Rom. 4:5 "But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted (imputed) as righteousness."

Rom. 4:11 "And … all those who believe … that righteousness might be imputed to them also."

Revelation 4:8 The four living creatures … do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”

Psalms 107:1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.

Psalm 47:1 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph! 2 For the Lord Most High is awesome; He is a great King over all the earth. 3 He will subdue the peoples under us, And the nations under our feet. 4 He will choose our inheritance for us … 5 God has gone up with a shout.

Jesus is the only way to God because:

1. The Bible reveals such. 2. Jesus alone provided an atonement to wash away sins and all men sin. 3. Jesus alone supplied powerful proof for His claims including over 300 predictions about His life and mission recorded before He was born. 4. He alone was raised from the dead. All other religious leaders are dead and in their grave.

Acts 4:10 let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth … 12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

John 4:7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.”… 9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. 10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” 11 The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? …13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” 15 The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.” 17 The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.” … 25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.” …28 The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, 29 “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” …35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! …39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I ever did.”

To Shout with the Congregation

John 20:19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace (Shalom) to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” 24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” 26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them.

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Eph. 1:17 … the Father of glory … according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places.

John 2:19-21 Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 21 … He was speaking of the temple of His body.

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Romans 5:1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Phil. 4:7 the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Colossians 1:29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.

Luke 19:37 … the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen … 39 And some of the Pharisees said, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” 40 But Jesus answered, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”

Psalm 22:3 But You are holy, O Thou who inhabits the praises of your people.

Jesus Gives Himself for Me

Galatians 2:20 … the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Galatians 2:17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners…

Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

Romans 7:15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I want to do, that I do not do; but what I hate, that I do. …19 For the good that I want to do, I do not do; but the evil I do not want to do, that I practice.

Colossians 1:29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.

John 12:1 Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. 2 There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. 3 Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. 4 But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, 5 “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” 6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.

7 But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial. 8 For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.”

Mark 14:3 …flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head.

A Glancing Thief

Look to Jesus for Joy and Truth

Luke 23:32 There were also two others, criminals, led with Him to be put to death. 33 And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left. 34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” …35 And the people stood looking on. But even the rulers with them sneered, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself….” 36 The soldiers also mocked Him… 37 and saying, “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself.” … 39 Then one of the thieves who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, “If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.” 40 But the other thief, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong.” 42 Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” 43 And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” 44 Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth... 45 Then the sun was darkened… 46 And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’” Having said this, He breathed His last.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood…

Romans 4:5 But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies evil people, his faith is imputed for righteousness…

No one has enough faith to believe that:

• Order came from disorder • Uniformity came from the accidental • Intelligence came from non-intelligence • Design came from chaos • Personality came from non-personality • Love came from hard matter • Everything came from nothing (everything in the cosmos came from absolutely nothing—is a new atheistic idea).

Hebrews 12:2 look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…

Matthew 5:21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. …27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart….”

Revelation 21:3 …God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” 5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new…11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. …18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald…21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. 22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.

Revelation 22:1-20 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, … 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. … 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” … 16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.” 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. … 20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

Revelation 4:10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him…and cast their crowns before the throne…

How to Become More Like Jesus

Daily Walking as Jesus Walked

 

Follow Jesus

Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

Union with and indwelling of Christ

Colossians 1:27 …the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Ephesians 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

John 15:5 [Jesus said] “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”

John 17:23 I in them, and the Father in Me…

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?...

 

Two main guides:

I.                    Sermon on the Mount - Matthew 5-6

II.                  1Cor. 13:4-8

 

What we cannot do:

1.      Die for the sins of men.

2.      Raise ourselves from the dead.

3.      Any miracles on our own; must be God’s will.

Matthew 8:2… a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.” 3 Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!”

Love

1 Cor. 12:31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and is kind; love does not envy; love does not boast, love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, Love is not easily angered, it’s not easily provoked, thinks no evil; 6 Love does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. -- Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.

Rom. 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out on our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

A.     Pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit

Eph. 5:18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit.

Expect by the power of the Holy Spirit to move and touch others like Jesus.

B.      Do Good

Acts 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

 

        C. Seek to Love others – constantly

        D. Forgive others quickly

        E. Offer mercy and grace to others perpetually

        F. Share the Gospel and Go in and become aware if people need prayer for healing and deliverance

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.”

G. Take charge in humility and power

Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, who is rich in mercy… made us alive together with Christ … 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

(memorize this verse)

I.        Serve others

Matthew 20:28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.

J.       Sacrifice

Romans 12:1-2 …present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

1.      Be with Jesus every day – Seek Him all day

2.      Deeply partake of the Lord’s Table – communion.

John 6:56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

3.      Expect to move in power and authority with grace and humility. Be open to help others Spiritually and in practical ways. Do not let little inconveniences, trifles, mistakes, little problems, vexations or people’s flesh get to you – vault over such or ignore such things (i.e., Jesus and Simon the Pharisee).

4.      Today, are you expecting to walk like Jesus?  (you are not an actor, but actors stay in roles, you can stay and remain in Jesus and move like Him).

 

Revolution and Renewal through Jesus

Luke 22:41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”… behold, a multitude; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him. 48 But Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” 49 When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus answered and said, “Permit even this.” And He touched his ear and healed him. 52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, captains of the temple, and the elders who had come to Him, “Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs? 53 When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” 54 Having arrested Him, they led Him and brought Him into the high priest’s house. But Peter followed at a distance.

John 18:3 Then Judas, having received a detachment of troops, and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons. 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?” 5 They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus said to them, “I am.” And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them. 6 Now when He said to them, “I am,” they drew back and fell to the ground. 7 Then He asked them again, “Whom are you seeking?” And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.” 8 Jesus answered, “I have told you that I am. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way,” 9 that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, “Of those whom You gave Me I have lost none.” 10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus. 11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?”

Matthew 21:44 And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”

John 12:24 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. 25 He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

Luke 9:23-24 Then Jesus said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me…”

“What am I afraid of?” Most of our anger stems from fear, and most of our fear comes from the perception that we are losing control. As long as we are in the driver’s seat and things are going our way, we rarely get angry. But let things not go our way, as they did that night when the soldiers came to arrest Jesus, and fear takes over. It is only a short step from fear to impulsive anger, and from sudden anger comes all manner of evil.”

Acts 3:19 Repent therefore … so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.

Acts 2:17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. … 19 I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.

“Letting go means giving up the right to always be in control. Letting go means admitting that you aren’t calling all the shots. Letting go means that you choose not to manipulate others with anger and threats. Letting go means admitting that you don’t have all the answers. Letting go means yielding your frantic emotions to the Lord. Letting go means resigning your position as Boss of the Universe.”

Hebrews 12:2 look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…

Twisted People and Crooked Nations

Making the Crooked Straight

Luke 13:10 Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. 12 But when Jesus saw her, He summoned her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are free from your infirmity.” 13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. 14 But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.” 15 The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath free his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it? 16 So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be free from this bond on the Sabbath?” … 18 Then He said, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden; and it grew and became a large tree, and the birds of the air nested in its branches.”

Psalm 146:8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; The LORD raises those who are bowed down..

Matt. 7:7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for…Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.

Numbers 21:8-9 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” 9 So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole…

Trust Jesus with All Your Heart

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of destruction.

John 15:5 [Jesus said,] “…without Me you can do nothing.”

John 1:35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!” 37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?” They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?” 39 He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour). 40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, “You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas” (which is translated, A Stone). 43 The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.”

John 11:21 Now Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may dead, yet he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” …32 Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He grieved in the spirit and was troubled…. 38 Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. … And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.” 43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” 44 And he who had died came out…

Crushing Fear and Worry

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God[c] was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me [Jesus] you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

Mark 7:24 From there He arose and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered a house and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden. 25 For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she begged Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 28 And she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.” 29 Then He said to her, “For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” 30 And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. 22 And He put all things under His feet…

Children Born of the Spirit and Not of Fear

John 1:12 But as many as received Him [Jesus], to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

1 Corinthians 2:16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Luke 19:1 Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

2 Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.

3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way.

5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”

6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully.

7 But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”

8 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”

 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Come Back for More: The Fullness of God’s Love

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and is kind; love does not envy; love does not boast, love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, Love is not easily angered, it’s not easily provoked, thinks no evil; 6 Love does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. -- Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. …

Rom. 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out on our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Ephesians 3:14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

1 Cor. 12:31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way.

Acts 3:10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

John 13:23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.

 Luke 17:11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” 14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. 17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

The Truth Brings Freedom

John 8:32 [Jesus said,] “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Eph. 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. 22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church.

Col 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Exodus 20:8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control…

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature… 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues … they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Luke 18:15 Then they also brought infants to Him that He might touch them [and pray and bless them]; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let [suffer] the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” [see Mt. 19; Mk 10].

Receiving a Word: Power and Change

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”

Phil 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who … made Himself of no reputation … He humbled Himself …

Matthew 8:2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” 3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Matthew 8:5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, 6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.” 7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 The centurion answered and said, “Master, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!”
