Our Dad In Heaven

Message Notes

(Matthew 3:16-17 ERV) So Jesus was baptized. As soon as he came up out of the water, the sky opened, and he saw God’s Spirit coming down on him like a dove. (17) A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the one I love. I am very pleased with him.”

(Matthew 17:5 ERV) While Peter was talking, a bright cloud came over them. A voice came from the cloud and said, “This is my Son, the one I love. I am very pleased with him. Obey him!”

Dad’s Heart
(Matthew 7:9-11 ERV) Do any of you have a son? If he asked for bread, would you give him a rock? (10) Or if he asked for a fish, would you give him a snake? Of course not! (11) You people are so bad, but you still know how to give good things to your children. So surely your heavenly Father will give good things to those who ask him.

(Matthew 6:26 MSG) Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.

Through Jesus, We Can Become Children Of God
(John 1:11-13 ERV) He came to the world that was his own. And his own people did not accept him. (12) But some people did accept him. They believed in him, and he gave them the right to become children of God. (13) They became God’s children, but not in the way babies are usually born. It was not because of any human desire or plan. They were born from God himself.

(John 14:7 ERV) If you really knew me, you would know my Father too. But now you know the Father. You have seen him.”

(Romans 8:31-32 ERV) So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can stand against us. And God is with us. (32) He even let his own Son suffer for us. God gave his Son for all of us. So now with Jesus, God will surely give us all things.

What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.

(Romans 8:15-16 NLT) So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” (16) For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.

Eventually the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.

Message Notes

Expect More

(2) He asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” These followers said to him, “We have never even heard of a Holy Spirit!” (3) Paul asked them, “So what kind of baptism did you have?” They said, “It was the baptism that John taught.” (4) Paul said, “John told people to be baptized to show they wanted to change their lives. He told people to believe in the one who would come after him, and that one is Jesus.” (5) When these followers heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. (6) Then Paul laid his hands on them, and the Holy Spirit came on them. They began speaking different languages and prophesying.

(John 16:12-15 ERV) “I have so much more to tell you, but it is too much for you to accept now. (13) But when the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you into all truth.

That is why I said that the Spirit will tell you what he receives from me.

Attractive Clothing

Building A Foundation – Anywhere Door VS Bamboo-Copter

Message Notes

(Luke 6:43-48 NLT) “A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. (44) A tree is identified by its fruit. Figs are never gathered from thornbushes, and grapes are not picked from bramble bushes. (45) A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart. (46) “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say? (47) I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. (48) It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.

What is foundation?
– Something important, Center of everything
– It’s unseen
– It’s not evaluated

Know What You’ve Been Given
(Romans 12:1 NLT) And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.

Know That There Are Rewards
(Genesis 28:15 NLT) What’s more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you.

(Galatians 6:9 NLT) So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

Be Independent Within God
(Psalm 1:2-3 NLT) But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. (3) They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.

– See how you can change and how you can bring a change to people around you

Things To Know

– Everyone Is Unique
(Romans 12:4-5 NLT) Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, (5) so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

– Everyone Thinks They’re Right
(Romans 14:16 TPT) So don’t give people the opportunity to slander what you know to be good.

– Know The Power Of Words
(James 3:5 NLT) In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.

Things We Can Do

– Don’t Payback Evil By More Evil
(Romans 12:17 NLT) Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable.

– Keeping Doing Right Things Before God
(Ephesians 6:12 NLT) For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

– Pray For That Person
(Philippians 4:6-7 NLT) Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (7) Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

-That’s How You Can Be The Light
(Matthew 5:14-16 NLT) “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. (15) No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. (16) In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

Remembered Forever

Message Notes

(Mark 14:3-9 ERV) Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper. While he was eating there, a woman came to him. She had an alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume made of pure nard. She opened the jar and poured the perfume on Jesus’ head. (4) Some of the followers there saw this. They were upset and complained to each other. They said, “Why waste that perfume? (5) It was worth a full year’s pay. It could have been sold and the money given to those who are poor.” And they told the woman what a bad thing she had done. (6) Jesus said, “Leave her alone. Why are you giving her such trouble? She did a very good thing for me. (7) You will always have the poor with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me. (8) This woman did the only thing she could do for me. She poured perfume on my body before I die to prepare it for burial. (9) The Good News will be told to people all over the world. And I can assure you that everywhere the Good News is told, the story of what this woman did will also be told, and people will remember her.”

Honoring
(1 Samuel 2:30b NLT) But I will honor those who honor me, and I will despise those who think lightly of me.

(Ephesians 6:2 NLT) Honor your father and mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise:

(1 Peter 3:7 NLT) In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.

(1 Peter 2:17 NLT) Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king.

Create A Trigger
(Psalms‬ ‭143:5‬ ‭ESV)‬‬ I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands. ‭‭ ‭‭

(Luke 22:19-20 ESV) And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.

Message Notes

(2Corinthians 3:13-18 NKJV) unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away.(14)But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ.(15)But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart.(16)Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.(17)Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.(18)But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord,are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory,just as by the Spirit of the Lord

Christian Life is all supernatural – always
(Ezekiel 36:26-28 NKJV) I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. (27)I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. (28)Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.
(John 3:1-8 NKJV) There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. (2)This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.” (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.” (4)Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” (5)Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. (6)That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (7)Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (8)The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Our one part is “unveiled faces” = openness
(1John 1:5-7 NKJV) This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. (6)If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (7)But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
(John 1:17 NKJV) For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
(Luke 18:10-14 NKJV) “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. (11)The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. (12)I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ (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 rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
(Mark 2:17 NKJV) When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

Reflectors of Jesus
(Galatians 5:22-25 NKJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (23)gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (24)And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. (25)If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
(Matthew 12:33 NKJV) “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.
