2013 Theme
Living Godly Lives
Radical Call – Radical Change
Matthew 4:18-22 And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers…He said to them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. They immediately left their nets and followed Him. Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
God’s call to us is life changing and we are transformed
Halfhearted Christians are in serious danger
Revelation 3:16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
Spending time with God is to be the top priority in our lives. We were created to have a relationship with God
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image.
Revelation 3:20 Look! I’ve been standing at the door and constantly knocking. If anyone opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me.
We are to take everything to God in prayer. We believe in the priority and purpose of prayer:
1 Timothy 2:1-2 …in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving…
1 Corinthians 1:9 God has invited you into this wonderful friendship with his Son, Christ our Lord.
Personal time with God the Father was Jesus’ source
of strength
Mark 1:35 Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed
Matthew 4:4 But Jesus told him, No! The Scriptures say, People need more than bread for their life; they must feed on every word of God.
Living Godly Lives
Romans 13:12 The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So don’t live in darkness. Get rid of your evil deeds. Shed them like dirty clothes. Clothe yourselves with the armor of right living, as those who live in the light.
John 3:16-21
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life…He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil…But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.
We must become real disciples of Jesus living Godly lives
We must be a team working and living together as a community
We must commit to doing, living right and to the mission
We must live with honor and integrity integrating and applying God Word in ALL our living life
We must share God’s grace, love, forgiveness and acceptance
We must serve with no compromise but a 100% commitment
We must dedicate ourselves to the Lord and one another
We must learn to sacrifice our time, talents & treasure for the Lord
We must take the risk to share with others
We must be vulnerable, opening up to lord and one another
We must be transparent with one another and the Holy Spirit
We must do whatever it takes to do the above
