What Would Jesus Say Is the Most Important Thing in the Whole World?
July 5, 2015

Mark 1:16-20 NLT
One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him.

A little farther up the shore Jesus saw Zebedee’s sons, James and John, in a boat repairing their nets. He called them at once, and they also followed him, leaving their father, Zebedee, in the boat with the hired men.

Mark 1:17 NLT
Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”

1. “And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth…” – Acts 17:26 (ESV)

2. “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…” – Revelation 7:9 (ESV)

3. “He left Judea and went away again into Galilee. And He had to pass through Samaria. So He came to a city of Samaria called Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph; and Jacob's well was there. So Jesus, being wearied from His journey, was sitting thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.” – John 4:3-6 (NASB)

4. There came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink." For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. Therefore the Samaritan woman said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me for a drink since I am a Samaritan woman?" (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) – John 4:7-10 (NASB)

5. Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." – John 4:11 (NASB)

6. The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship." – John 4:19-20 (NASB)

7. Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.” – John 4:21-23 (NASB)

8. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. – John 4:24 (NASB)

What Would Jesus Say About ISIS?

JULY 19, 2015 | Jarm Turner

51 The time approached for Him to be taken back up to the Father; so strong with resolve, Jesus made Jerusalem His destination.

52 He sent some people ahead of Him into the territory of the Samaritans, a minority group at odds with the Jewish majority. He wanted His messengers to find a place for them to stay in a village along the road to Jerusalem. 53 But because the Samaritans realized Jesus was going to Jerusalem, they refused to welcome them. James and John (outraged): 54 Lord, do You want us to call down fire from heaven to destroy these people who have rejected You? [Just as Elijah did.] Jesus (turning toward them and shaking His head): 55 You just don’t get it. 56 The Son of Man didn’t come to ruin the lives of people, but He came to liberate them. He led them on toward another village. Luke 9:51-56 The Voice (VOICE)

27 “But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you.28 Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also. 30 Give to anyone who asks; and when things are taken away from you, don’t try to get them back. 31 Do to others as you would like them to do to you. Luke 6: 27-31

All governments have been placed in power by God…The authorities are sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for you will be punished. The authorities are established by God for that very purpose, to punish those who do wrong.”(Romans 13:1,4)

Sermon Notes for
What Would Jesus Say About What Matters in the End?

“We must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.” (2 Corinthians 5:10, NLT)

“In old age, your body no longer serves you so well. Muscles slacken, grip weakens, joints stiffen. Your hair turns apple-blossom white, Adorning a fragile and impotent matchstick body. Yes, you’re well on your way to eternal rest, While your friends make plans for your funeral. 6 Life, lovely while it lasts, is soon over. Life as we know it, precious and beautiful, ends. 7 The body is put back in the same ground it came from. The spirit returns to God, who first breathed it.” (Ecclesiastes 12:3, 5-7 The Message)

You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139:13 & 14 NIV)

“I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. 25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith.” (Philippians 1:21-26)

“We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin.” (Hebrews 4:15, The Message.)

“Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!” (Luke 23:46)

“When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” 27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.” (John 19:26-27)

“I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” (John 21:18, NIV)

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.  2 In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.  3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am…I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you…I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you…because I live, you also will live…The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.  27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:1-3, 16, 18, 26, & 27)

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hands who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid.”—Robert Browning

“Societal trends have drifted away from an emphasis on community and the common good and moved toward the need to take care of self, perfect oneself, even to the point of self-aggrandizement.”

Dr. George Drinka, a child and adolescent psychiatrist

Luke 8:40-48

40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. 41 Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying.

As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.

When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.”

46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.”

47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

 

Core Questions to the Human Heart:

Do I Measure Up?

Am I Enough? 

Do I still matter?

 

“Insecurity refers to a profound sense of self-doubt—a deep feeling of uncertainty about our basic worth and our place in the world. Insecurity is associated with chronic self-consciousness, along with a chronic lack of confidence in ourselves and anxiety about our relationships. The insecure man or woman lives in constant fear of rejection and a deep uncertainty about whether his or her own feelings and desires are legitimate.”

 

Romans 12:3

“Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment.”

 

2 Cor. 10:17

“Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord”.

 

Jesus says, “I see you.”

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.

Luke 12: 15 (NCV)


Jesus said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me.  If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it.  But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.  And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?”
Luke 9: 23-25 (NLT)


Jesus said, “What do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?”
Mark 8: 36 (NLT)


Are you addicted to thrills?  What an empty life!  The pursuit of pleasure is never satisfied.
Proverbs 21: 17 (MSG)


You may think you are on the right road and still end up dead.
Proverbs 14: 12 (CEV)


Jesus said, “You cleverly ignore the commands of God so you can follow your own teachings.”

There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.

Jesus looked straight at them and said, “There are some things that people cannot do, but God can do anything.”
Luke 19: 26 (CEV)


Jesus said, “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.  Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.  But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.  When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
Matthew 7: 24-27 (NLT)


If anyone belongs to Christ … the old things have gone; everything is made new!
2 Corinthians 5: 17 (NCV)


Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit.  You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God.  For there are many false prophets in the world.

WHAT WOULD JESUS SAY (Part 7)

About Politics, Points and Policies

AUGUST 16, 2015

 

Those who say that they live (for Christ) must live the same way Jesus lived.

1 John 2: 6 (GW)

 

 

Later, Matthew invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners.  (There were many people of this kind among Jesus’ followers.)  But when the teachers of religious law who were Pharisees saw him eating with tax collectors and other sinners, they asked his disciples, “Why does he eat with such scum?

Mark 2: 15-16 (NLT)

Jesus said, “Tax collectors and other notorious sinners often came to listen to Jesus teach.  This made the Pharisees and teachers of religious law complain that he was associating with such sinful people — even eating with them!”

Luke 15: 1-2 (NLT)

 

 

It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning.  God will judge those on the outside …

1 Corinthians 5: 12-13 (NLT)

 

 

Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be gracious and attractive …

Colossians 4: 5-6 (NLT)

 

 

Jesus said, “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?  How can you think of saying, ‘Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?  Hypocrite!  First get rid of the log in your own eye …

Luke 6: 41-42 (NLT)

 

 

“Men of Athens, I see that you are very religious.  As I was going through your city, I was looking closely at the objects you worship …”

Acts 17: 22-23 (GW)

 

Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.

Philippians 2: 15 (NLT)

 

 

Jesus said, “Don’t misunderstand why I have come.  I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets.  No, I came to accomplish their purpose.”

Matthew 5: 17 (NLT)

 

 

Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be gracious and attractive …

Colossians 4: 5-6 (NLT)

 

Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe.  It is foolish to the Jews, who ask for signs from heaven.  And it is foolish to the Greeks, who seek human wisdom.  So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense.

1 Corinthians 1: 21-22 (NLT)
