Sunday June 5th 2011 OPERATION LIBERATION :SETTING THE CAPTIVES FREE:
we are at war Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. (4) No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. 2 Tim 2:3-4
We are at war, but not against everyone The World, The Flesh, The devil, but not people.
2 Corinthians 5:20-21 WE ARE THEREFORE CHRIST'S AMBASSADORS, AS THOUGH GOD WERE MAKING HIS APPEAL THROUGH US. WE IMPLORE YOU ON CHRIST'S BEHALF: BE RECONCILED TO GOD. GOD MADE HIM WHO HAD NO SIN TO BE SIN FOR US, SO THAT IN HIM WE MIGHT BECOME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.
Acts 1:7-8 HE SAID TO THEM: "IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW THE TIMES OR DATES THE FATHER HAS SET BY HIS OWN AUTHORITY. BUT YOU WILL RECEIVE POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES ON YOU; AND YOU WILL BE MY WITNESSES IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDEA AND SAMARIA, AND TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH."
WE HAVE BEEN CALLED TO WIN BACK PEOPLE TO JESUS.
LETS TAKE THE PEOPLE TEST. SCORE YOURSELF ON A RANGE FROM 1-10 HOW DID YOU SCORE? NOW LETS TAKE THE TEST FOR GOD. HOW DID HE SCORE? PEOPLE ARE WHAT MATTER MOST TO GOD
WHAT DOES A GROWING CHRIST FOLLOWER LOOK LIKE? WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MAIN ATTRIBUTES THEY DISPLAY? LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENTS, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, SELF CONTROL.
16 THEN THE ELEVEN DISCIPLES WENT TO GALILEE, TO THE MOUNTAIN WHERE JESUS HAD TOLD THEM TO GO. 17 WHEN THEY SAW HIM, THEY WORSHIPED HIM; BUT SOME DOUBTED. 18 THEN JESUS CAME TO THEM AND SAID, “ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME. 19 THEREFORE GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, 20 AND TEACHING THEM TO OBEY EVERYTHING I HAVE COMMANDED YOU. AND SURELY I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, TO THE VERY END OF THE AGE.”
Philippians 2:4-5 EACH OF YOU SHOULD LOOK NOT ONLY TO YOUR OWN INTERESTS, BUT ALSO TO THE INTERESTS OF OTHERS. YOUR ATTITUDE SHOULD BE THE SAME AS THAT OF CHRIST JESUS:
