Sermon note (3rd svc)
– by Pastor Lawrence
Every time we come together, something good will happen. Every difficulties, look to Him and u can more than conqueror
Whatever you needs may be, always look to the gospel. How can they hear unless the preacher is sent?
Gospel brings great tiding of good things.
We have passed from judgement into life.
We are blessed, redeemed from every curse.
God is so good.
The Christian walk (spiritual walk) is never meant to be alone. We are meant to be connected together with kingdom friends.
Many times miracles are found in our mouths.
God wants to put us together so that we can be blessing together.
Where 2 or 3 are together, Jesus is in our midst.
God did not design man to journey alone. It is so important to have kingdom friendship. It is important to build deep friendships. So that when you encounter difficulties in lives, there are community to pray with you.
What is first thing first for believers?
It is important we get the first thing first.
What should be first for us?
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
The Risen Christ, Faith’s Reality
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,
First importance –
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance
Christ died for our sins according to the scripture, He was buried and risen from the dead! This is the gospel and the most important truth!
Jesus died for our sins.
who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.
The reason Jesus went to the cross was He took our sins. He laid down His life. He gave His life for us.
He sacrifice His very life for us! Today our sins are forgiven when we believe we are forgiven.
We are sinners and fall short. All of us have sins. If not in action, in words, or in thoughts or in motives. We have sin and failed. Sin is what is between God and man. It separated us from God. God abolished sin and Jesus died in our place so that we do not need to die. What is the motive? LOVE!
Jesus did not want eternity without us!
Our sin are forgiven
This is the gospel! The bible did not say faith comes by having heard. We need to listen frequently. In the original script, it says faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of Christ!
When we need faith, listen over and over again!
How are we forgiven and how much are we forgiven?
We can only be forgiven when that Someone died for us.
What is the extent of the forgiveness we have?
The gospel of Jesus Christ.
1 John 2:12
Their Spiritual State
I write to you, little children,
Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.
Original text was in Greek in New Testament. English is a translation.
Are Forgiven is perfect tense. A definite action
All are sins, past, present n future all forgiven. What Jesus has done that is outside time are forgiven!
And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
All -> totality
All our sins have been forgiven!
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
Have -> continuously have forgiveness of our sins.
Because finding fault with them, He says: “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
This is what it is. Our sins are forgiven. Our sins and lawless deed He remembers no more!
Come boldly to the throne of grace!
Grace is not a license to sin.
All our sins are forgiven!
Our sins are ALL forgiven! One offering, our sins are put away forever!
Don’t let your past affect you!
I don’t know what you have done, but i know God’s grace!
I want you to dream again!
I want you to hope again!
I want you to believe God again!
Don’t rejoice over the past. Rejoice what God wants you to have now !
God wants to do something in your life today and now! He wants to love you today!
What is holding you back?
When Jesus met the woman at the well, she was married 5 times. She was with another man who was not her husband. Jesus not a single harsh word loved her. Even telling her about her sin, it was amazing. She clearly was a sinner.
Look at Jesus, the kindness and the grace extended to her.
The woman caught in adultery, He said neither do i condemn you, go and sin no more.
No condemnation, or impending judgement.
God never punish or judged them. He chastened with His words.
There is no condemnation from God anymore.
The Christians can never be lost or come under condemnation
Outcome of one’s life if living in sin, it might mean the person has head knowledge and not heart knowledge.
Don’t assume we know it in our head. We need to know it in our hearts!
It is a continuous revival
God loves us today.
It is not doing something. It is a blessing to receive
It is a wonderful time spend together
We need to know His love again. Is His love for you. First thing first. Receive Him afresh in your heart!
Why do we worship God? Because God loves us
Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of Christ.
Since i began listen to Pastor Prince sermons, i have been freed from addiction.
Pastor Prince proclaimed restoration.
After he listened to Pastor Prince’s message in Texas, his ex-wife fb message him and they got together again and married again !
Listening regularly is the key to receive their breakthrough.
I pray that your hearts be revived!
We are in Christ, created in true holiness! We are highly favoured!
Listen regularly gives you the breakthrough.
Change must from the inside out not outside in.
We are forgiven and made righteous!
1 Corinthians 1:30
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
God has put us in Christ and Christ has become for us righteousness!
Hold your head up high!
The devil wants to point you to the past. Always look to the cross! Look to Christ! Take authority over your thinking !
The first person we need to forgive is ourselves. Are we still beating ourselves up? We need to let go
Forgive yourself. The burden has been lifted.
Is a supernatural work that has been accomplished by God.
Why are you rejoicing?
When u know God loves you.
Let go, it is going to be a glorious future!
You are a blessing to someone.
You need to put that shame behind.
Raise up! You are the righteousness of God in Christ!
Maybe u have bitterness in your heart. U need to forgive. Don’t focus on forgiving someone. Focus on God’s love for you.
Don’t try. God will work in your heart to forgive.
