By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I am not ashamed of the Gospel

Romans 1:16 NLT
[16] For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes-the Jew first and also the Gentile.

The man born blind

John 9:1-3,6-7 NLT
[1] As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. [2] “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” [3] “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him. [6] Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes. [7] He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”). So the man went and washed and came back seeing!

Now I can see!

John 9:8-11 NLT
[8] His neighbors and others who knew him as a blind beggar asked each other, “Isn’t this the man who used to sit and beg?” [9] Some said he was, and others said, “No, he just looks like him!” But the beggar kept saying, “Yes, I am the same one!” [10] They asked, “Who healed you? What happened?” [11] He told them, “The man they call Jesus made mud and spread it over my eyes and told me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash yourself.’ So I went and washed, and now I can see!”

Revelation 12:11 NLT
[11] And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.

Prepare your testimony
1 – Get clear : What has Jesus done for me?
2 – Get excited : your story is a miracle!
3 – Get bold : look for opportunities to share your story

(John 7:37-38 CSB) On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. (38) The one who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.

(Exodus 35:31a NIV) and he has filled him with the Spirit of God,

(Ephesians 1:4 NIV) For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love

3 – Why? Purpose!

(Exodus 35:31b-33 NIV) with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts.

(Exodus 35:34 NIV) And he has given both him and Oholiab son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach others.

(Exodus 36:1 NIV) So Bezalel, Oholiab and every skilled person to whom the Lord has given skill and ability to know how to carry out all the work of constructing the sanctuary are to do the work just as the Lord has commanded.

Haggai 1:14 NLT
[14] So the LORD sparked the enthusiasm of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the enthusiasm of Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the enthusiasm of the whole remnant of God’s people. They began to work on the house of their God, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies,

Overflow of joy as we build together

Zechariah 4:10 NLT
[10] Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”

 

Overflow of blessing as we build together

Zechariah 8:10,12 NLT
[10] Before the work on the Temple began, there were no jobs and no money to hire people or animals. No traveler was safe from the enemy, for there were enemies on all sides. I had turned everyone against each other. [12] For I am planting seeds of peace and prosperity among you. The grapevines will be heavy with fruit. The earth will produce its crops, and the heavens will release the dew. Once more I will cause the remnant in Judah and Israel to inherit these blessings.

 

Temporary sacrifice, permanent reward!

Zechariah 6:10-11,14 NLT
[10] “Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah will bring gifts of silver and gold from the Jews exiled in Babylon. As soon as they arrive, meet them at the home of Josiah son of Zephaniah. [11] Accept their gifts, and make a crown from the silver and gold. Then put the crown on the head of Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. [14] “The crown will be a memorial in the Temple of the LORD to honor those who gave it-Heldai, Tobijah, Jedaiah, and Josiah son of Zephaniah.”

 

Hebrews 12:2 NIV
[2] fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Shout Louder

Mark 10:46-52 GNT) They came to Jericho, and as Jesus was leaving with his disciples and a large crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus son of Timaeus was sitting by the road. (47) When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus! Son of David! Have mercy on me!” (48) Many of the people scolded him and told him to be quiet. But he shouted even more loudly, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” (49) Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man. “Cheer up!” they said. “Get up, he is calling you.” (50) So he threw off his cloak, jumped up, and came to Jesus. (51) “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. “Teacher,” the blind man answered, “I want to see again.” (52) “Go,” Jesus told him, “your faith has made you well.” At once he was able to see and followed Jesus on the road.

1. Some Moments Have Only One Chance

(Mark 10:46-47 GNT) They came to Jericho, and as Jesus was leaving with his disciples and a large crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus son of Timaeus was sitting by the road. (47) When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus! Son of David! Have mercy on me!”

(Ephesians 5:16 NIV) making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

2. Shout louder!

(Mark 10:48 GNT) Many of the people scolded him and told him to be quiet. But he shouted even more loudly, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

3. Cheer up and get up!

(Mark 10:49) Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man. “Cheer up!” they said. “Get up, he is calling you.”

4. Some old things have to be thrown away to get your new thing from God

(Mark 10:50-52 GNT) So he threw off his cloak, jumped up, and came to Jesus. (51) “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. “Teacher,” the blind man answered, “I want to see again.” (52) “Go,” Jesus told him, “your faith has made you well.” At once he was able to see and followed Jesus on the road.

Come and sit with Jesus

Luke 10:38-42 NIV[38] As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. [39] She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. [40] But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” [41] “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, *“you are worried and upset about many things,* [42] but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is *better*, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Keep the priority your relationship with Jesus

Philippians 3:8-9 NLT
[8] Yes, *everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.* For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ [9] and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.

Step into His presence and give Him what’s in your heart

Psalm 62:8 NLT
[8] O my people, trust in him at all times. *Pour out your heart to him*, for God is our refuge.

Serve Him out of a place of joy and vision

Psalm 100:2 NKJV
[2] *Serve the LORD with gladness* ; Come before His presence with singing.

Confidence from God

God Word : knowing what God has done in your life gives confidence in life and leadership

Key story : an uneducated beggar is healed and stands up to an angry religious group

John 9:6-9 NLT
[6] Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes. [7] He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”). So the man went and washed and came back seeing! [8] His neighbors and others who knew him as a blind beggar asked each other, “Isn’t this the man who used to sit and beg?” [9] Some said he was, and others said, “No, he just looks like him!” But the beggar kept saying, “Yes, I am the same one!”

Know what he’s done for you

John 9:24-25 NLT
[24] So for the second time they called in the man who had been blind and told him, “God should get the glory for this, because we know this man Jesus is a sinner.” [25] “I don’t know whether he is a sinner,” the man replied. “*But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!*”

Follow Jesus

John 9:26-28 NLT
[26] “But what did he do?” they asked. “How did he heal you?” [27] “Look!” the man exclaimed. “I told you once. Didn’t you listen? Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples, *too*?” [28] Then they cursed him and said, “*You are his disciple*, but we are disciples of Moses!

Stand firm in your faith

John 9:29-30 NLT
[29] We know God spoke to Moses, but we don’t even know where this man comes from.” [30] “Why, that’s very strange!” the man replied. “*He healed my eyes, and yet you don’t know where he comes from?*

Deep relationships

John 14:9a NLT
[9] Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and *yet you still don’t know who I am*?

Love tangibly
1 John 3:16,18-19 NLT
[16] We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. [18] Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; *let us show the truth by our actions.* [19] Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.

Live honestly
Ephesians 4:14-15 NLT
[14] Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. [15] Instead, we will *speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ,* who is the head of his body, the church.

Forgive continually

Luke 17:4 NLT
[4] *Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day* and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.”

God Word – You can make a choice to be part of God’s family. Don’t sit on the fence but choose to be a son and daughter of the House.

Main story – the early church understood their identity had changed and started living differently as sons and daughters of God’s House.

Ephesians 2:19-22 New Living Translation (NLT)
So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family. Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself. We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirits.

Strangers
Foreigners
Citizens
God’s family

Acts 2:42-47 New Living Translation (NLT)
42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer. 43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. 44 And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. 45 They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. 46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity— 47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.

1 They devoted themselves
2 They had a sense of awe and was expectant!
3 They were generous to the core.
4 They shared life together.
5 They had a heart to draw people in.
