Zone X Sermon Note

Pastor Judah Smith

The cycle of pain 

Grace is a Person. Grace is us getting the good we don’t deserve. 

That demon possessed man had no hope. He was someone who never thought any good could come to him. Jesus went all the way to look for him. In that moment perfect moment perfect Man has set him free. 

All because love sought him out. 

Jesus is the answer. He is the desire of all nations!

We all going to experience pain sometime or another. 

Jesus is the answer to cycle of pain

Genesis 29:31-35

Jacob’s Children

When the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb, but Rachel was barren. And Leah conceived and bore a son, and she called his name Reuben, for she said, “Because the Lord has looked upon my affliction; for now my husband will love me.” She conceived again and bore a son, and said, “Because the Lord has heard that I am hated, he has given me this son also.” And she called his name Simeon. Again she conceived and bore a son, and said, “Now this time my husband will be attached to me, because I have borne him three sons.” Therefore his name was called Levi. And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, “This time I will praise the Lord.” Therefore she called his name Judah. Then she ceased bearing.

Pain is pain. Not categorising big or small pain

Pain makes us feel like we need to be heard and seen. 

When we are in pain we have this need and cycle 

When we are in pain and wants everyone to see it 

Leah married to a man who did not ℓσνє her because he was in ℓσνє with her sister. 

She was married to a man who did not ℓσνє her. She was not the beautiful one. She was not noticed. 

Have you felt you are not the talented and beautiful one? 

Have you felt you are not the person who stay out?

Life just seems really painful. 

Leah was in pain. 

She started having babies and sons that can carry on family name

Rueben means look he is a boy

We do something we want everyone to see it. We experience so much pain that social media is our platform 

If people see me, than my pain will go away. 

Simeon sounds identical to the word heard 

Leah wanted someone to hear her and listen to her.

We are in a culture that is happening so fast that we are not heard

Levi in hebrew sounds like attachment 

Look is a boy

Heard

Attachment

Cheap connection works like soda

When u drink it u get more thirsty

This is what cheap connection are. 

You don’t feel heard and seen

Leah praise the Lord this time. 

Therefore she called his name Judah. In hebrew it sounds like praise

Leah was still in pain but everything changed 

She went from setting for cheap connection to worship leader!

Everytime we are in Old Testament, look for Jesus

Judah is the 4th son 

Jesus came from the tribe of Judah

There is only One that can break your cycle

He can break your cycle

It is not what happened, it is who happened!

When Jesus transformed us, it is hard to explain

He can break your cycle just like that. 

We believe in the Person of Jesus Christ who can bring changes in our lives and change everything!

Everything Leah wanted in Jacob, Jesus is!

Jesus sees her

Luke 12:7

Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.

You want some Levi in your life?

Nothing can separate us from the ℓσνє of God

When we are in pain we wants to be seen and heard. 

We want connection!

Jesus sees you and always connect you to Himself and Father

Jesus fulfil your soul

One of the most powerful thing when you are in pain is to praise! 

Praise like everything has changed.
