To Walk in the Spirit

Sunday January 7, 2018

Larry Mills shared  a story of a blimp and how that there was a gentleman that tied the rope of the blimp to himself. The blimp just held onto him and the gentleman just enjoyed the ride. Larry mentioned that there is a rest that the people can hold onto. It is just that we have to tie the rope and trust God. Let Him hold onto us and enjoy the ride. We need to depend on God and trust Him more. God is the God of the impossible. Larry mentioned that we need to pray for continued wisdom. Larry referenced Galatians 5:25. He shared what God is doing throughout his ministry with couples and families and the new building for their cafe. All the years til now has prepared him for this year and it is not a cliche. Larry encourages the people not to sit but, to rise up. He questions, ” What’s it mean to walk in the Spirit?” Larry mentions three things that must be a part of our lives. 1) Reading the word of God. 2) Prayer, get into a habit of talking to God. Choose something you do everyday and attach it to that to get into the habit of talking with God. 3) Sharing your faith with someone. Larry mentions that most people have difficulty sharing faith.  He references John 20:21, the first disciples saved. With this great gift of eternal life, the salvation comes with great responsibility. If you just sit back and don’t share than there are others who won’t have the opportunity to experience salvation. Larry references Philemon 1:6, acknowledge every good thing. There two tips Larry had given and gave statistics of how many people could get saved over the span of sixteen years. 1) Write down five people’s names who may be open to the gospel. Pray for them desperately daily. Declare an open Heaven over them. 2) Pray for the other laborers that would come along, show them how to lead people to Jesus. Show the unconditional love of God. Meditate on Philemon 1:6. He encourages us to trust God and to not to be afraid. If you can’t get excited about what He has done in you, don’t even try. However, if you can get excited about every good thing He has done in you then you have a voice. Larry mentioned that if the Body of Christ can rise up that revival would come. He mentions about blood covenant and the importance of understanding it. Jesus walked the path for you and I. We were in His Loins as He walked the path. If anyone be a new creation in Christ old things have past away behold all things have become new.
