Sunday 9/5/10 Pastor Alex sermon-Becoming One, Unity Gen 2;24, Deut 6;6-7, II Cor 6;14, Titus 2;4-9, John 17;25 Eccle 4;12
1) Unity is Power- Being together as One is Power. The world knows Jesus was sent by God thru Unity. So many churches are struggling with division. Folks hate authority and satan uses this to divide the church. We should not team up with any unbelievers. Donít be unequally yoked. Donít get into a legal contract with any unbelievers that donít believe in Jesus. There will be no unification about the basic principles of Jesus with unbelievers.
We need to do things Godís way by discovering what scripture says about an issue and do what He said. We should not resist coming before God to ask for help with our issues and not be double minded about it.
2)You are Going to Reflect Something. We see ourselves in our children and they reflect our ways. If we are doing the Christ thing then they will show this Gal 5;16-25. If we walk in the Spirit then we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. The battle is between the Spirit and the flesh. The flesh works fornication, adultery, witchcraft, idolatry, anger etc.
vs. 25 If we live by the Spirit then we should walk in the Spirit. Walking in the Spirit means we know the Spirit dwells in us and the Spirit is 100% God. We donít need to pray for patience cause the Spirit has 100% of Godís patience. When we need patience and temperance, its because we are walking in the flesh.
II Cor13;4-7 Love is patient, kind. God is Love. Love is not jealous, boastful, or demanding its own way. Love doesnít hold grudges. We must confess ourselves daily, confess our flesh daily. We need to ask God to change us.
3)Be Creative, Not Boring- Live life as a Christian creatively, not boringly. Let our children and others see us living life Godís way with joy and happiness. We can do this by living thru the Word of God. Deut 6;-7,
Titus 2;4, II Timothy 2;12 We should be excited about Jesus, church and going to Heaven to be with God Forever- Eternally!!
