September 15- "God's Plans for You?" (Can You See It?" Series- Pastor Josh)
Main Idea: God has a unique work set apart for you - and the Kingdom of God depends on it (not you, but the work itself).
-1 Thess. 5:13-18
-1 Peter 4:10-11
Point 1: Most Christian are stuck at square one- they've figured out salvation/ struggling with obedience- but they're lost when it comes to understanding the work God wants them to accomplish.
-Question: Can you see the unique plan and vision that God has for your unique life?
-Lack of understanding of God's vision: Robs us of blessing and leaves us floundering in a state of complaint; causes us to miss/ ignore how God is moving; prevents us from seeing Jesus- we see problems and limitations instead.
Point 2: Even when you can't see beyond the next step that God has for you, stay within the framework of God's plan by being obedient and by staying founded in God's word.
Point 3: When you begin to effectively walk in God's plan for you, expect the attacks from the enemy to begin in earnest.
-1 Peter 5:8-9
Point 4: God's ultimate plan for you- and for humanity- is salvation! He wants you to intimately know Him, to accept salvation and to be restored to right relationship with Him.
-2 Peter 3:9
-1 Thess. 4:3-7
September 8- "God's Original Design" (Can You See It? Series- Pastor Josh)
Main Idea: In order to get back to God's original design for life, we must get back to recognizing and teaching the foundational truths of God's Word and to orienting ourselves by God's truth and design, not by the sway of the culture.
-Genesis 1:26-28 - The Creation Mandate
-1 Timothy 1:3-4
1. We must get back to an understanding- an assurance- of where the truth comes from. The Bible is our absolute source of truth - but Satan and the world are doing everything to pull our eyes off of our objective standard of truth through moral relativism and Satan's war against God's design.
-1 Timothy 4:1-4
-1 Cor. 5:1-5
-2 Timothy 4:3-4
People that live out God's design become Godly, have Godly marriages, grow Godly families and develop Godly culture - and that's the last thing Satan wants.
2. Sometimes in confusing times and situations, you need to make it a priority to reorient yourself to the foundational truths that you know; get back insight of the landmarks you know.
When you disoriented and struggling to find God's design, struggling to find yourself in it, stop and reorient yourself with what the Bible has to say.
3. God's perfect plan for life together with Him is redemption - His plan to draw humanity back into right relationship with Him.
There is nothing you have done that God cannot pull you out of; no place you can go where God does not pursue you; nothing so terrible you have done that He will not welcome you back.
