Building on a Firm Foundation: Obedience

Sunday October 16, 2011

Offering message: John 4:35; John 6:5-11. Order before increase. Jesus told Philip to do what would test him, for Jesus knew what He would do. Live by the supernatural. The will of God comes before every financial decision. God gives wealth to fulfill the vision. The issue is souls. Be thankful for what you have and stop operating on limits. The only limits are on what God wants to do. Sermon message: Matt. 7:24-27 Build your life on the Word- hearing and doing it. Jesus learned obedience by the things He suffered (Heb. 5:8), such as loneliness, rejection, abandonment, and death. Through the tough times you can learn obedience. In a problem, stop looking for an answer and simply obey God. Deut. 28:1, 2 Success is measured by obedience. Harken to the voice of the Lord; He still speaks today! I Kings 19:9-12 tells us that God spoke in a still small voice to Elijah. Obedience is suffering. Fast and pray over big decisions. What is God saying to you? Be diligent to obey the Lord. I Tim. 1:18 War a good warfare and don’t let Satan take what God told you to do. Obedience, not results and money, is your measuring stick of success.
