(Luke 19:1-10 NLT) Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town. (2) There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. (3) He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. (4) So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way. (5) When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.” (6) Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. (7) But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled. (8) Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!” (9) Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. (10) For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”

Power Of Worship – When We Choose Jesus Over Everything…!

Message Notes

(John 4:23 NLT) But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.

Scene 1
(Daniel 1:8-9 MSG) But Daniel determined that he would not defile himself by eating the king’s food or drinking his wine, so he asked the head of the palace staff to exempt him from the royal diet. The head of the palace staff, by God’s grace, liked Daniel,

(Daniel 1:19-20 MSG) When the king interviewed them, he found them far superior to all the other young men. None were a match for Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. (19-20) And so they took their place in the king’s service. Whenever the king consulted them on anything, on books or on life, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his kingdom put together.

Scene 2
(Daniel 3:12 ERV) There are some Judeans who you made important officials in the province of Babylon that ignored your order, King. Their names are Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They don’t worship your gods, and they didn’t bow down to worship the gold idol you set up

(Daniel 3:16-18 MSG) Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered King Nebuchadnezzar, “Your threat means nothing to us. If you throw us in the fire, the God we serve can rescue us from your roaring furnace and anything else you might cook up, O king. But even if he doesn’t, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference, O king. We still wouldn’t serve your gods or worship the gold statue you set up.”

(Daniel 3:25-27 MSG) “But look!” he said. “I see four men, walking around freely in the fire, completely unharmed! And the fourth man looks like a son of the gods!” (26) Nebuchadnezzar went to the door of the roaring furnace and called in, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the High God, come out here!” Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego walked out of the fire. (27) All the important people, the government leaders and king’s counselors, gathered around to examine them and discovered that the fire hadn’t so much as touched the three men—not a hair singed, not a scorch mark on their clothes, not even the smell of fire on them!

(Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT) So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

(John 16:33 NLT) I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.

“1 Like” 👍

Message Notes

(2 Corinthians 10:12 NLT) Oh, don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant!

1.What are you building your life on?
(Matthew 7:24-27 NLT) “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. (25) Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. (26) But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. (27) When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

(Galatians 1:10 NLT) Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

2.The most valuable “1 Like” 👍
(Matthew 3:17 ERV) A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the one I love. I am very pleased with him.”

(2Timothy 2:15 NIV) Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

Overflow With Thankfulness

Message Notes

Thankfulness in the Will of God

Thanklessness is a sign of the end times

Legion guy
(Luke 8:38-39 NIV) The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, (39) “Return home and tell how much God has done for you.” So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.

Zacchaeus
(Luke 19:8-10 NIV) But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount. (9) ”Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. (10) For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Good Decisions to a thanksgiving (healthy) life

1.Find triggers of thanksgiving
(Psalm 100:4 NIV) Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
‭‭‬‬‬‬‬‬
2.Remember with thanks the important things

(2) Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— (3) who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, (4) who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, (5) who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

3.Build friends who have the same thankful values
(1 Corinthians 15:33 TLB) Don’t be fooled by those who say such things. If you listen to them you will start acting like them.

4.Giving out of a willing heart
(Exodus 35:21 NIV) and everyone who was willing and whose heart moved them came and brought an offering to the Lord for the work on the tent of meeting, for all its service, and for the sacred garments.

Jesus Is Calling You To Something Greater!

Message Notes

(Judges 6:11-16 NLT)Then the angel of the Lord came and sat beneath the great tree at Ophrah, which belonged to Joash of the clan of Abiezer. Gideon son of Joash was threshing wheat at the bottom of a winepress to hide the grain from the Midianites. (12) The angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “Mighty hero, the Lord is with you!” (13) “Sir,” Gideon replied, “if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? And where are all the miracles our ancestors told us about? Didn’t they say, ‘The Lord brought us up out of Egypt’? But now the Lord has abandoned us and handed us over to the Midianites.” (14) Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!” (15) “But Lord,” Gideon replied, “how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and I am the least in my entire family!” (16) The Lord said to him, “I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites as if you were fighting against one man.”

What Is Your Excuse?

Didn’t they say, ‘The Lord brought us up out of Egypt’? But now the Lord has abandoned us and handed us over to the Midianites.” (15) “But Lord,” Gideon replied, “how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and I am the least in my entire family!”

(2 Timothy 1:7 NLT) For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Go In Strength That Comes From Jesus
(Judges 6:14, 16 NLT) Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!” (16) The Lord said to him, “I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites as if you were fighting against one man.”

(Philippians 4:13 NLT) For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

(2 Timothy 1:9-10 MSG) We can only keep on going, after all, by the power of God, who first saved us and then called us to this holy work. We had nothing to do with it. It was all his idea, a gift prepared for us in Jesus long before we knew anything about it. But we know it now. Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus.

Message Notes

(Acts 16:22-26 ERV) The whole crowd turned against Paul and Silas. The officials tore the clothes off both men and ordered that they be beaten with rods. (23) They were beaten severely and thrown into jail.

(25) About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing songs to God. The other prisoners were listening to them.

(イザヤ 40:31 JCB) しかし、主を待ち望む者は新しい力がみなぎり、わしのように翼を張って舞い上がることができます。どれだけ走っても疲れず、どんなに歩いても息切れしません。
