    Psalm 34 – Divine Protection of Jesus’ Church
    Series: Topical
    Psalm 34 - Divine Protection of Jesus' Church is an encouraging message reminding us what it means to stand our post even in a world that is not a safe place. Spiritual battles require spiritual protection. We cannot isolate ourselves from the dangers of this world because it is fallen and there is evil all around us. The good news is that the scriptures say: "Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." Romans 8:37. Psalm 34 - Divine Protection of Jesus' Church gives us practical application of what it means to walk in the divine protection of Jesus.

    Mark 2:1-12 – So This is Christmas – Jesus’ Power to Save Us
    Mark 2:1-12 - So This is Christmas - Jesus' Power to Save Us is a story about a lame man whose friends believed that Jesus could heal him. At last they found a way to get their friend before Jesus by opening the roof and letting him down by ropes attached to his bed. But Jesus didn’t heal the man’s lameness — he forgave his sins. When Jesus forgave the man, the teachers of the law didn’t like it, and with good reason. How could a mere man forgive sins, something that only God had authority to do? Mark 2:1-12 - So This is Christmas - Jesus' Power to Save Us illustrates that we are all lame and need Jesus to heal us of our sin. God has made Himself accessible to all people
    The Apostle Mark wrote: "Jesus, when He came out (of the boat), saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd.

    Hebrews 1 – So THIS is Christmas: God Becomes a Man
    Hebrews 1 - So THIS is Christmas: God Becomes a Man is an unusual passage for a Christmas message, revealing the majesty of God’s plan of redemption in the incarnation of Jesus.  Some view Christmas as a Holiday tradition with loved ones, presents, lights, and wonderful décor to adorn the house in color. But what if Christmas is so much more? What if Christmas is God reaching out to us? What if Christmas is God saying, “you matter to Me, you are important to Me”?
     
    Hebrews 1 - So THIS is Christmas: God Becomes a Man is God showing us He wants to be involved in our life in a profound way.

    The Apostle John wrote: "The love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.  In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

    Daniel 6 – Jonah 2 – Acts 27 – Living With Gratitude
    Series: Topical
    Daniel 6 - Jonah 2 - Acts 27 - Living With Gratitude teaches us that Gratitude is learning the satisfaction in God's greatness, not our own. Living with gratitude is easier said than done! Our sinful nature defaults to entitlement as we seek our own greatness. When we face hardships and trials in our lives how do we live with gratitude? God's love and forgiveness are the foundation for a grateful heart, which we see in the biblical characters of Daniel, Jonah and the Apostle Paul. Daniel 6 - Jonah 2 - Acts 27 - Living With Gratitude is a message on how we can live with gratitude no matter our circumstances.
     
    Living with Gratitude: Entitlement is the Enemy of Gratitude An Entitled spirit produces:
    Selfish ambition Self Righteousness Self Reliance
     
    Daniel 6 - Jonah 2 - Acts 27 - Living With Gratitude
    “Our underlying problem is a deep desire not to find our satisfaction in God’s greatness, but our own.” – John Piper In the Book of Luke, Jesus teaches: “Beware of these teachers of religious law! For they like to parade around in flowing robes and love to receive respectful greetings as they walk in the marketplaces. And how they love the seats of honor in the synagogues and the head table at banquets. Yet they shamelessly cheat widows out of their property and then pretend to be pious by making long prayers in public. Because of this, they will be severely punished.”
    Luke 20:46-47 (NLT)   https://www.blueletterbible.org/nlt/luk/20/46-47/s_993046
    How do we live with Gratitude? Living With Gratitude Begins When our Striving Ends The Apostle Paul writes: “For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God. 20 My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:19-20, (NLT)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nlt/gal/2/19-20/s_1093019 Living with Gratitude - Daniel 6 Gratitude is a Result of God’s Love for Us Not the love for our Circumstances Living with Gratitude - Jonah 2 Gratitude is a proper Response when we’re Forgiven of our sin Living with Gratitude - Acts 27 Gratitude brings Abundant Joy to Life’s Storms
    Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
    Philippians 2:3-4, (NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/phl/2/3-4/s_1105003
     
    Living With Gratitude is Satisfaction in God’s Greatness; not our own
    The Apostle John writes of John the Baptist: “So John’s disciples came to him and said, “Rabbi, the man you met on the other side of the Jordan River, the one you identified as the Messiah, is also baptizing people. And everybody is going to Him instead of coming to us.” John replied, “No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven. You yourselves know how plainly I told you, ‘I am not the Messiah. I am only here to prepare the way for Him.’ It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the bridegroom’s friend is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at His success. He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.” John 3:26-30, (NLT)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nlt/jhn/3/26-30/s_1000026

    Matthew 28 Acts 2 - 7 Practices of a Disciple of Jesus
    Matthew 28 Acts 2 – 7 Practices of a Disciple of Jesus
    Matthew 28 Acts 2 - 7 Practices of a Disciple of Jesus is the third sermon to equip Christians on really "Understanding The Great Commission". The 7 Practices of a Disciple of Jesus are found in the book of Acts in Chapter 2. Jesus commanded all of Christians to obey The Great Commission to make disciples (Matthew 28). But who is a disciple? What does a disciple do? And how do you make disciples? Understanding the 7 practices of a disciple answers all of these questions and also help us grow personally. Matthew 28 Acts 2 - 7 Practices of a Disciple of Jesus will also better equip us to make disciples and fulfill The Great Commission everywhere we go! 
     
     
    7 Practices of a Disciple of Jesus:
     
    In the book of Matthew it says: "Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen." Matthew 28:18-20, (NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/mat/28/18-20/s_957018
     
    Therefore, let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ

    ACTS 2
     
    The 1st practice of a disciple of Jesus REPENTANCE
     
    • Our Sin against God • Our rebellion against the Lordship of Jesus
     
    Let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He (Jesus) is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest. 1 John 3:7-10, ( NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/1jo/3/7-10/s_1162007
    The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord upholds him with His hand. Psalm 37:23-24, (NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/psa/37/23-24/s_515023
    For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity. Proverbs 24:16, (NKJV)  https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/pro/24/16/s_652016
     Where sin abounds, grace abounds even more. So that (just) as sin reigns in death, even so grace reigns through righteousness, to eternal life, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:20-21, (NKJV)   https://www.blueletterbible.org/nkjv/rom/5/20-21/s_1051020
