... AGES OF MAN ... TIME OF GOD

Precedence over the past.
  1.  They wanted Moses over Jesus.
  2.  It meant that they did not have a physical priest.   
  3.  They did not have a physical temple building.


Jews had to confront:
           ● Not going to the temple.
           ● Not bringing an animal.
We need to consider these sacrifices.
  1.  Sacrifices of the Jews.   
  2.  Sacrifice of Jesus.
  3.  Our Sacrifices.


God has promised to be our God and we can be in His house (sanctuary).
We need to get rid of:
1. Works of the flesh, immorality.
2. Impurity of the spirit.
3. False religion, false doctrine, false practice.

Reach out for God
That we would choose life over death
Seek good, truth, and peace - turn from evil
Our righteousness would rule over our evil
That our fear of God outweighs our doubts
Mercy in truth is offered by His glorious grace
That we should know salvation is of the Lord

SANCTIFIED = SEPARATE

Five pillars of a Spiritual Life:
1. LOVE OF TRUTH,
2. GROWING CHARACTER
3. HUMILITY AND GLORY OF WORSHIP
4. JOY OF SACRIFICIAL SERVICE
5. STRENGTH OF CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

Path to Success
1. Set a Goal
2. Prioritize Your Tasks
3. Have the Right Attitude
4. Do More Than Expected
5. Work Diligently

... He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. ~ Hebrews 11:6

Diligently Seek = Search Out
1. Sincerity
2. Seriousness
3. Decisiveness
4. Passion
5. Energy
6. Persistence
7. LOVE

How do you answer to spiritual authority?
Was it
FROM HEAVEN
Then
BELIEVE IT
Was it
FROM MAN
Then
REJECT IT
Say You
DON'T KNOW
So Cowards
WON'T COMMIT

God wants us to be extra sure what He calls for:

Ephesians 5:19-20 Colossians 3:16-17

... speaking to one another = teaching and admonishing
one another
psalms and hymns and
spiritual songs,
= psalms and hymns and
spiritual songs,
making melody in your heart singing with grace in your hearts
to the Lord, = to the Lord.
... giving thanks always
for all things to God the Father
in the name of our Lord
Jesus Christ, ...

= ... in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving thanks
to God the Father
through Him.


Authority
Heaven or earth
(men)
1. Authority Submission

It is Christ we need to put on to receive the blessing.

2. Work Service

The Reason:                                                    
1. His Nature Gentle & Humble
2. His Yoke Easy, pleasant, it fits

If we don’t find Christ easy, then we are unbalanced
~ and lack faith or have trouble believing.

Attitude = What Can I Do To Serve?

Focus on God first and the rest will fall in to place.
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added to you." ~ Matthew 6:33

~ How can you serve the Lord being grateful for the opportunity?
● Grow in improving our obedience.
● Talk to the Lord and ask for specific help.
● Study the Bible for deeper wisdom of our true living God.
● We need to pray more, honestly and truly expressing to Him.
● Spend more time thinking about His worthiness, His attributes.

MUSE = 
To Ponder
Deeply upon

AMUSE = 
Distract from
Serious Thought

THEIST = 
Belief in one
Creator God

   ATHEIST = 
Denies
Existence of God


● It’s all been done before
● It’s not worse now than the past
● Don’t take criticism too seriously
● But don’t criticize the powerful
● Work hard
● But not too hard
● Never forget God

One cannot serve both God and greed
DOUBLE MINDED = ½ OF A PERSON

MULTITASKING = MANY TROUBLES


~
I hope my meek service has drawn souls genuinely closer to God.
