Sermon note (2nd svc)
– Pastor Mark
The heart of God
The year of Hesed Wisdom
Pastor Mark loves CNY cos he felt it is the season he has underserved blessings. During CNY everything become full of harmony
Isaiah 11:8 (NLT)
The baby will play safely near the hole of a cobra. Yes, a little child will put its hand in a nest of deadly snakes without harm.
In CNY suddenly the houses are tidied up, cleaned because relatives will come. Pastor could eat and eat during CNY and his parents will not scold him (as a child)
CNY there is no more death, only life! Tongues are controlled during CNY.
The hongbao is in red. Jesus who is rich became poor to make me rich. Jesus has finished the work
What is grace? Grace is not what you can do for God, is what God can do for you.
Jesus come knowing the state we are in. Let Jesus come in.
Why we believe red will usher in all the good in our lives? Or gold?
Gold means divine righteousness
Righteousness is become of the blood
Heart of God. See how God sees us
Jesus came and He stood down.
See Him wash our feet.
Righteousness is the gift, not what we can do.
Jesus is the perfect gift! Only Jesus can perfect us in the presence of God.
He never changes. God never changes. When we are in the most emo stage, God never change.
He still love you, He still for you.
Man proclaiming of their love for God
Only Jesus can love no end!
God’s love will never turn eclipse towards you.
The gospel truth. Grace and truth comes by Jesus Christ.
Everyday in our lives we will fail. What is our thought to God?
James 1:17 AMP
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights [the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens], in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow [a]cast by His turning [for He is perfect and never changes].
You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
Those who receive it will make you free! Free from sickness, lack !
Jesus on earth came for who? He came for the lost the last
that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
If God can send good to the evil and unjust, would He also give us much more?
God never change.
And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eating with the tax collectors and sinners, they said to His disciples, “How is it that He eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?”
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.”
“But when the teachers of religious law who were Pharisees saw him eating with tax collectors and other sinners, they asked his disciples, “Why does he eat with such scum? ””
Mark 2:16 NLT
“When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.””
Mark 2:17 NLT
God is looking for people who are broken, pain, that nothing in this world can heal their heart.
He comes for you!
When you fail, you must believe God wants to bless you !
Your disqualification is your qualification
Gospel makes loser become winner
The least of the prodigal son, the father waited for him to come back, not to scold him, but to hug him and kiss him and give him the best rode.
This is the heart of God.
God don’t confiscate His blessings on us.
God still love me when i sin. God believe is the goodness of God that leads us to repentance
What change the prisoner’s hearts? Is the love of their parents who still come and see them years after years. Is the goodness of God that lead us to repentance!
Why are we not pouring our lives to the Lord? Because we do not know we are forgiven much.
Forgiveness of sin is the gospel truth. Will make people don’t want to sin anymore.
Live the let-go life.
Everyday is a happy and joyful day!
Sin does not separate us from God.
Jesus has paid for all our sins.
Jesus gave up His place for us.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Jesus was punished. He took our place. He settled our hearts. The condemnation kills.
The first c is condemnation, the second c is Christ.
Behind every condemnation, there is a need to punish.
The second c, we are forgiven and love! Good things happen to those who believe that God loves them.
The first mention of clothing is Genesis 3:21
“The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.”
Genesis 3:21 NIV
When the Lord put the clothings on Adam, He paid big time. He paid with Jesus’ life.
Each tears of God are love.
“For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.”
Galatians 3:26-27 NLT
Whenever i sin and fail, i thank God that He has forgiven me.
1 John 2:1
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
Jesus is defending you in the presence of God. Holiness is speak like what God speaks and think like what God thinks.
We are still IS the righteousness of God in Christ.
The secret is meditation.
