Sermon note (GenRev) -By Pastor Mark
How to live a victorious life?
In life is not what we can be, but what He can bring us to be.
With the Lord all things are possible.
How to be human?
In our GenRev, what we are in this generation is different from 10 years ago.
We all learn in life. Now everything is easy access through internet. The temptation is great. Now all is more expensive compared to last time.
Is a very different kind of generation. In everything a lot of comparison. Trying to be better with each other. Not just physical, also our families. worse thing is spiritual attack. Spiritual realm is very real. It is condemning you.
For you to live, honestly, is not easy.
Grace is always greater! In human we cannot do.
In the growing up, our parents always tell us to be good to get good.
What we learn in school, the mother of all success is failure.
Do we condone failure?
It is not easy.
God loves failure. God loves the least and the lost.
Everything is totally different from what we learn.
This is what we learn, you must fight and u can get good future. The problem is we cannot.
From the Word of God, is the truth. We cannot. When we fail, don’t feel so bad. Feeling condemn won’t help you. When we encounter Jesus, it is radical.
What you hate you become what you hate. We always think why Adam failed.
It is not about man. It is how good God is.
To have everything is Me. Is God. God created and God provided. Man by ourselves we cannot.
It is not what we can do.
When we are into challenges, or living in life that you do not want to be, God is telling you today He understand you and not judging you.
Life and death is in the power of our tongue.
What direction we want to go is by the power of our tongue.
Jesus can guarantee good future. It is not the university degree.
Walk with the Lord is the most important part. A lot of time in life, why we fear? We do not know what is happening tomorrow.
Our status in society cannot let us know what is going to happen tomorrow.
Only the Lord can give you the security that you can enjoy everyday.
When we hardworking is the fruit. Not at the expense of our family.
Good success is the Lord.
What is key important in our life? If we know how to be human, is how we can live victorious life.
Every time we return to Jesus we are returning to grace!
In life we are the poor gals and we have the richest guy loving us now, He is Jesus!
Go to the root.
The Lord wants us to know the most important part is Proverbs 23:7
What are you thinking everyday?
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
“Eat and drink!” he says to you,
But his heart is not with you.
According to your heart be it unto you.
God’s Word is the manual for life!
Why are you not happy?
In life you are thinking about better job, better pay, all those are temporal. God wants us to have deeper joy! Always rejoicing in the Lord!
What are we thinking everyday?
What are we believing everyday?
Keep your heart (belief) with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.
Without seeing Jesus we can never rest.
God wants us to know this is the most important part.
To Pastor Mark’s mind in the past, to come to the Lord he must be pure. So he tried.
But we do not need to cleanse ourselves before going to the Lord.
He thought he needed to earn to get from the Lord.
After 2 years nothing happened. He thought he was a failure.
God is telling him and change him from the inside.
God wants us to encounter Him. Everything is fruit when we encounter Him. He is the Husband I am the wife.
All these past we cannot erase. God is asking us to guard our hearts.
I am no longer in sin. What you are thinking will result in reality.
Battle not outside, but inside.
Bring all thoughts. Guard one area. Jesus said my God shall provide. My God said He will provide He sure provide!
I am rich because Christ was being made poor for me.
God is telling us the truth. We just need to guard what is inside us.
Word of God is life and spirit.
Jesus in the wilderness He said according to the scripture.
My God shall supply my needs.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of Christ and what we say everyday.
What is the truth? Conscious about what am I believing?
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
What we need to guard is our ground. The ground is our hearts.
Where are you planted? Planted in the heart believing you cannot breakthrough, the fruit will be what your thought is.
Meditating on the Word of God. What God is telling you.
My God is for me, who can be against me?
We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! As Christ is, so are we in this world.
We need to just change our mind.
When we are planted in the good ground, whatever we do prosper.
My focus is where i am planted, and the fruit is prosperity.
Focus on Jesus and abundance life is the fruit.
It is not about what we do, but what He has done for me.
1. Romans 1-3 talk about man
2. Romans 4 talk about Abraham, justified
3. Romans 7 got 25 verses but got 38 time with “i” when there is a “i” there, it is gone case. Take out the i and put in Jesus. Look to Jesus and that is your victorious life
1. KNOW – Romans 6:3-4 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Know we are dead in Christ. We are now planted together in the likeness of Christ. His resurrection is for us to be made righteous. We must change inside. We don’t go by the world. Be transformed by the Word.
For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin.
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
Once you are condemning yourself, you body will work against you.
Condemnation will kill you daily layers by layers. In the good i want to do i cannot do.
When you fail, God is not surprised. He know it already. He has settled it.
You can hear about forgiveness but do you believe it?
Through the cross you are forgiven and you love Him much.
We punish ourselves when we do something wrong. Let Him take the punishment.
Through His obedience i am made righteous.
Everything is not overnight.
Jesus is the Vine we are the branches. As long as we watch the ground we will have the fruits. We just need to be conscious of Jesus.
We can be happy today! Jesus has died for us.
Worldly thoughts kill you.
I got Jesus i got everything!
God is our portion. It is the Lord who will make you happy. The Lord gives us the joy and peace is everything!
As long as i guard my heart (guard the ground), the fruits come.
I fail and i am qualified for grace!
If you are good you are not qualify!
Sin abound, grace superabounds.
Look at ourselves we die, look at Jesus we shall live❗️
Jesus gave everything to me.
My happiness exhibited with the one i love.
Encounter Jesus and happiness comes.
Sin and curse no longer dominion over us.
To live is Christ.
We need Him more! Kill the thought that the longer you are in church you will not sin.
We need Him. He is our High Priest to always represent us before God. God is seeing us in Christ.
Precious stones. Beautiful gems in righteousness setting.
When i believe i am precious, i see people as precious.
How we see is very important!
Jesus gives us the breath to breathe.
Come to a point everyday we walk with Him, we do not need to fight our rights. They don’t deserve it, so do i. We are underserved.
When we know we are forgiven much we want to love much.
Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
Christ is my righteousness
Fight the good fight of believing. Battle is in the mind. We just guard here.
1. Knowing (know we are righteous in Christ)
2. Reckon (change your mind)
Most important part is how we get this ground to be good? By hearing.
Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?—
What we hear is very important.
Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”
What you hear. You will receive even more.
Receive by hearing.
Grace and peace shall be multiplied to you.
Have a revelation of Jesus in our lives. Know ourselves that we are different.
Children of light.
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Whatever we are, we are full of light
We are the children of light.
The world is going to get darker but we will get brighter.
It is the awareness of who we are.
Keep on feeling bad will not help us. Guard our hearts. God is a good God!
