A life of conviction is stronger than a life of faith. 4 Convictions of the church in Acts 2: 1) They were convinced that they were called by God. 2) They were convinced that they were called out of the world. 3) They were called above the world into fellowship with God. 4) They were called for the world.
When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you do the things you never did before. Consider it a favour when God asks you to do something. It is grace when God choses you among many He could have went to. The only thing that can happen to the will of God is delay, it can never fail. God takes care of His plans and He is focused to see His will come to pass. The church exists to bring people to Christ, if there are no new people coming in, then the church has lost its meaning. When last did you bring the new person in the kingdom of God? Do not lose a meaning to win souls. Wonder why church is not moving, it has lost appetite to move out. The Holy Spirit gives the appetite to win souls. A united front is a blessed front; unity is where the power is. Sometimes we are united without plan. Never underestimate the power of planning. Moving forward with the Holy Spirit!
The only power that changes lives is the Holy Spirit. The Source of life is the only power that can change lives. A church without the Holy Spirit can not impact the city. Church is a place of people who are valuable to God. Reasons for the existence of church:
to be a life-giving center, to bring understanding and to bring love where there is hatred.
The two huge mountains in Christianity are the Great commandment and the Great commission.
A) Great commandment: Love God with all your mind (intellect), soul (feelings/emotions ) , heart (will) & strength and love your neighbour as yourself.
Show love, live in love and demonstrate love.
B) Great commission: Don't evangelise but disciple. To evangelise is to proclaim, to disciple is to make into the image and likeness of Christ.
The bridge between the two mountains is the Church. Jesus started and the Body will continue with the work.
Freedom is so important such that over the years millions of people have died in pursuit of freedom. Real freedom is outside the ability of man. We are all prisoners and we can therefore not save each other. Without God's help there's no freedom
Though God is not looking for us to vote for Him...there is a manifesto for our freedom.
Moses celebrated the Passover by faith (v28). Paul and Silas were in prison but they knew they were not prisoners. Moses celebrated his freedom though they were still in Egypt. We are in the world but we are not of the world, we are in prison but we're not prisoners.
Essence of the courage of conviction: Behave what God says you are though your reality says something different. Highest form of faith- celebrate the promises and live as if you already are there.
The only way to get out of prison is not to complain but to praise. Paul & Silas were in shackles. Praise= worship God on credit. He becomes your debtor and He will pay back with interest.
The one who was keeping them prisoner washed their wounds. Whatever was keeping you prisoner will work for your good
Courage doesn't mean you don't get afraid, it means you don't let fear stop you. Fear resides more in our minds than in reality. If you think you will not, you are right you will not. If you think you can, you are right you can.
Life gives us both good and bad times. When one is prepared for a journey, things go well but if not prepared things fall apart.
Through your marriage make God proud and serve as a role model to others coming after you. There are many marriages out there, but not all of them are glorious. An ordinary marriage is cheap and not exciting.
