Why You Need A Church Family

Posted by on Mar 21, 2017 in blog, Faith, Thanksgiving | 0 comments

Why You Need A Church Family

Each week over 110 million people go to church somewhere in America. Let me put that into perspective. If you take all the people who have ever gone to a basketball game, ever gone to a football game, ever gone to a baseball game, tennis match, or any public sporting event and you added them all up in a single year, that would not equal the number of people who go to church on a single weekend. More people will be in church this weekend than will go to all the sporting events combined in America in an entire year. For many of those people they have no idea why they attend church. Some of them go out of tradition. Some of them go out of guilt. Some of them go out of habit. So once a year here at Saddleback Church we pause and I do what I call the Annual Purposes of the Church Message. Just kind of like in our constitution it requires our president to do an annual state of the union message, I do an annual message that says let’s just remind ourselves why we do what we do. Why would we all get out of bed this morning and come to church? Why do we pave all these acres of parking? Why do we build these buildings? What purpose do we do this for? If you’re a visitor here today you’re going to get an inside look at Saddleback Church. The Bible says that God created the church to help people fulfill His five purposes for their lives. So this morning we’re going to review God’s five purposes for your life and how the church is meant to help you fulfill those. And I always like to do a little what’s the next step of where we’re going as a church family for the next year. 1. You need a church family to help you center your life around God through worship. Worship is simply building your life around God, centering your life around God. God didn’t put you on earth to live a self-centered life. He didn’t put you here for your benefit. He put you here for His benefit. You exist for God not vice versa. And God wants to be the hub of your heart, the axis of your existence, the core of your being, the focus of your attention. He wants to be the center of your life. The Bible calls that worship. Anytime God is the center of your life you are worshipping God. How do you know if God is really at the center of your life? It’s real simple. You stop worrying. Worry is the symptom, the warning light that God’s not the center of your life. You will always in life either be worshipping or worrying. Those are the alternatives. When God is not the center of your life — when anything else, your career becomes the center of your life, your family becomes the center of your life, your money becomes the center, any time anything except God takes the center place in your life you’re going to be prone to anxiety. Prone to fear. Prone to worry. So every time you start worrying, it’s just a little sign that at that particular moment...

REMAIN IN FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD

REMAIN IN FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD   

SCRIPTURE FOR MEDITATION Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.   PRACTICING THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD’S PRESENCE The sin of the fallen angels is that they abandoned fellowship with God. The reason for their creation was fellowship with God. They had no other responsibility. Their duty was to worship God daily from morning till evening. Lucifer was chief of these worship angels. As long as they carried out this responsibility, they were honoured, glorified and had their place in heaven. When they decided to abandon the purpose for their creation, they fell out with God and were thrown out of heaven.   As a result of abandoning fellowship with their Creator, they suffered the following consequences:   (1) They were thrown out of heaven. See Isaiah 14:12- How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (2) They are bound in chains and kept in darkness awaiting the great day of judgement. See Jude 1:6- …he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (3) They lost their glory and perfection. See Ezekiel 28:14-15- Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.   Man was also created for fellowship with God. Intimacy is the essence of our creation. Abandoning fellowship with God is turning our backs on the purpose of our existence. Seeing the above dire consequences of abandoning fellowship with God, would you remain adamant and neglect the practice of...

WHO AM I IN CHRIST?

WHO AM I IN CHRIST?

THE EYES OF THE LORD RUN TO AND FRO THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH TO SHOW HIMSELF STRONG ON MY BEHALF. [2Chronicles 16:9- For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…] Unlike nursing mothers who only watch babies but stop watching once the baby grows up, God’s eyes stay on us forever. His love, care and faithfulness to His children never wanes. You are a special baby in the hand of God. He pays attention to you and so can tell your needs even before you ask. As a loving Father, He delights in meeting our needs; showing Himself strong on our behalf. ‘The LORD hath been mindful of us:  he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron’ (Psalm 115:12). So, remember that He is mindful of you in ways predetermined, to be a blessing to you and your family...

HE IS THE HOPE OF THE HOPELESS

Posted by on Jul 9, 2016 in blog, love, Prayer | 0 comments

HE IS THE HOPE OF THE HOPELESS

Job 14:7-10- For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant. But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he? No man dies until he gives up the ghost. As long as the Holy Ghost is in you, you cannot die. And as long as you are alive, there is hope for a better future. For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion, Ecclesiastes 5:4. Daily communion with the Holy Spirit brings hope even in an hopeless situation.   When most Christians pray, they ask for a continued enjoyment of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God. However, very few Christians work towards consistent communion with the Holy Spirit even though He is the present God of this dispensation. If the Holy Spirit, who is in charge of the present dispensation, is despised, judgment is attracted. See Hebrews 10:28-29-   He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?   You worship the Holy Spirit by calling Him and praising Him through your knowledge of His activities. The extent to which you can interact with an individual depends on the extent of your knowledge of Him. The more you know the Holy Spirit, the better your relationship with Him will be. Below are seven ways you can daily enjoy sweet communion with the Holy Spirit:   By acknowledging the reality of His presence in you by being conscious of Him in your heart. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (1Corinthians 3:16). What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (1Corinthians 6:19). In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:6). By always appreciating Him by communicating to Him the reality of His activity e.g. Letting Him know that He is your teacher and that you depend on Him for knowledge. By getting Him involved in all that you do by talking with him e.g. Holy Spirit I am going out, let’s go together By asking Him questions for which you are expecting an answer By deliberately listening quietly with an intention to hear from Him thoughts that could light on your mind. If you are used to His thoughts, before you know it, you will be able to hear His voice. By praying in tongues with a mindset that you are talking to Him in your heart. He that speaketh in unknown tongues speaketh...

THE POWER OF LOVE

Posted by on Jul 9, 2016 in blog, love | 0 comments

THE POWER OF LOVE

Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Love is an attitude, a commitment, a form of behavior, passionately demonstrated for the benefit of another without intentionally expecting a reward. Ministering/Preaching works by love. Although we have a mandate to bring the good news of Christ to all creation and minister to the needs of people, our preaching and ministering must be carried out in love. Ephesians 4:15- But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ. The truth of God’s word must be done from the platform of love. We must learn from Jesus’ example. His success in ministry was hinged on love. See Hebrews 7:25-26- Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens. Intercession is an act of love. The reason Jesus is able to save is because He is a lover. Before Christ committed the headship of His Church to Peter, He first had to ascertain that Peter had love for the ministry in his heart. See John 21:15-17- So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Paul said in 1Corinthians 13:1-2- Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am...

Seeing the above dire consequences of abandoning fellowship with God, would you remain adamant and neglect the practice of intimacy?   EXCERPT FROM JESUS CALLING BY SARAH YOUNG I AM TRAINING YOU IN STEADINESS. Too many things interrupt your awareness of Me. I know that you live in a world of sight and sound, but you must not be a slave to those stimuli. Awareness of Me can continue in all circumstances, no matter what happens. This is the steadiness I desire for you. Don’t let unexpected events throw you off course. Rather, respond calmly and confidently, remembering that I am with you. As soon as something grabs your attention, talk with Me about it. Thus I share your joys and your problems; I help you cope with whatever is before you. This is how I live in you and work through you. This is the way of...
