(Hebrews 12:2 NKJV) looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of [our] faith..
√ THE DECISIONS YOU MAKE TODAY DETERMINE THE STORIES YOU TELL TOMORROW.
(Genesis 12:1-2 NLT) The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you.
What step of FAITH do I need to take? Where do I need to GO?
(Genesis 12:2-3 NLT) I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. 3 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
√ You can’t IMAGINE the blessings GOD has ahead when you OBEY.
√ You can’t imagine what you’ll MISS if you don’t OBEY.
(JOHN 19:25 NLT) Standing near the cross were Jesus’ mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary (the wife of Clopas), and Mary Magdalene.
√ GETTING CLOSE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
(LUKE 24:13-15 NLT) That same day two of Jesus’ followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem. As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things, Jesus himself suddenly came and began walking with them.
√ Today is not the DAY to walk AWAY.
√ Even while walking AWAY, JESUS went after them.
(LUKE 24:17, 21 NLT) He asked them, “What are you discussing so intently as you walk along?” They stopped short, sadness written across their faces. ……. We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel.
√ Don’t go the WRONG WAY out of DISAPPOINTMENT.
(LUKE 24:28-31 NLT) 30-31 As they sat down to eat, he took the bread and blessed it. Then he broke it and gave it to them. …. Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared!
√ RECEIVING is the beginning of the GO!
(LUKE 24:33, 36 NLT) within the hour they were on their way back to Jerusalem. ….. just as they were telling about it, Jesus himself was suddenly standing there among them.
√ The STIRRING of faith, PRECEDES the go!
(HEBREWS 11:8 NLT) It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. 9And even when he reached the land God promised him, he lived there by faith
