Sermon note (4th svc)
The gospel is all about God’s goodness! When God’s goodness is being preached, it is amazing how we response! When grace is being preached, man still asking can anything good come out?
Man in his fresh does not think well of God. The devil has through out the years put the thought that God is not that good.
Man in the flesh cannot think well of God.
The goodness of God leads us to repentance.
I Never Knew You
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
These are people who were not saved.
Righteousness will once again reign in this earth!
For Him to create He only had to speak. For Him to redeem He had to bleed. He chose to redeem us!
The Lord appeared in the burning bush as if to tell us He feels our heat and He is with us!
Everything in the universal obey God except man.
God is a Kinsman Redeemer.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved and your house! The will of the Father is to believe on Jesus!!
Those who have proclaim Jesus Christ and believe in Him in your heart are doing the will of the Father!!
And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
There is no compromise. Is the gospel of grace and peace.
1 Corinthians 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
God never force although He is King.
If grace is there, you step in it, the grace will start working! Flow with the grace.
If you use the grace, the grace will produce the fruit!
Bosses don’t judge based on grace but on works. The works are based on whether one uses the grace in them to produce the fruit.
Do you allow correction? If you have bad attitude you cannot go further.
Everybody has the same amount of time. There are things we do that God can add time to us.
When we spend in the Word, He will add length of days! Is a blessing!
Start the day right with God!
You and God alone is amazing!
How about having chance to be with the King of Kings? Knowing that we talk to a God who loves us and know us about our problems?
Performance is brought about by how we flow with the grace!
Holiness. Holiness is not confound as righteousness.
Holiness is being set apart. The opposite of holiness is commonness.
God gave food. God gave sex. God gives us sex in confine. Use it all the time, it dissipate.
God gives the act with pleasure. It is not done with pain, it is done with pleasure. Marriage is God’s idea.
The devil come and bring sex out of marriage confinement.
God ordain for man to be one.
Past time zone of grace.
Grace appeared and bring salvation.
Present time zone of grace.
The grace of God teaches us.
Grace teaches is heart transformation.
Future time zone of grace.
Looking for the blessed hope of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Believers look forward to the rapture. People need to be in an environment of security.
God’s way end up spirit soul and body
God gave Joseph dream.
Between the gift and the interpretation is the wisdom.
Joseph said how can i do this wickedness and sin against God.
When it comes to sexual temptation, run!
Temptation – Confidence (in the flesh) – Sins (indulgence) – Guilt (new resolution) – repeat the cycle.
Sexual sin is greater.
1 Corinthians 6:18-20
Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Ability to interpret from God takes wisdom.
Sexual energy if not used is transmitted into creativity.
God loves you!
Sexual immorality includes anything outside marriage that is not husband and wife.
If you commit sexual immorality you are committing sin against your own body.
Confessing sin because you have been forgiven.
Not trying to be forgiven.
Christians are bought. We are bought with the vision that God has for us! With the precious blood of Jesus Christ!
Keep yourself sexually pure and people will see God’s glory
We are called to glory!
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8
For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.
Shine, look good, look wholesome, not in passion of lust.
Blessed are your eyes for you see.
Don’t be like the people of the world.
God will always take side. He is protecting His people! Praise the Lord for He is good! God is good to His people. God will protect His people.
There are levels and degree of sin. Sexual immorality is one sin that has big ripple! Once u learn to say no, is easier and easier.
People who rejoice their victory over their sin in public or sin under your ministry, who would you prefer?
When a sinner come to Jesus, the sinner will never be condemned. Law is unbending.
Thank God for the law. Without the law, we will not see we need Saviour.
Jesus came to fulfil the law, not to destroy the law.
The law was happy to see Baby Jesus. He bless the parents and not the Baby because Jesus is greater than the law.
God gives us long good life so that we can see Jesus.
Grace evangelised. Law don’t evangelised.
Jesus finger writing on stone shows He is the One who gave the 10 commandments.
Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
John 9:1 Chapter 9
A Man Born Blind Receives Sight
Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.
Grace cannot stop giving. Grace cannot stop from being grace.
If one reject grace, grace will still go somewhere to give.
When Egypt attack Israel, the pillar of fire was light to the people of God but was darkness to Egypt.
All our sins are forgiven and paid righteously at the cross!
No more guilt, no more condemnation and therefore no repeat of the sin cycle!
When guilt is broken, no repeat of sin cycle!
The gift of no condemnation is the power of go-and-sin-no-more! Start living a life of a purity and spirit of a virgin. It is still God’s way. God is for glory on your marriage.
