FlashForward

If we were to flash for­ward 6 months and see where you would be at that point would you be hap­py if noth­ing changes? If you could affect where you will be instead, what would you you do? And why aren’t you? That is in essence what our ser­mon series is all about.

Our future isn’t always pret­ty. In fact the Bible is pret­ty clear that we can face a lot of chal­lenges from the world when we fol­low Christ. 2 Timothy 3:1–5 [show]ERROR: The IP key is no longer sup­port­ed. Please use your access key, the test­ing key ‘TEST

Ungodly peo­ple will chal­lenge us to fol­low their ways. And some will per­se­cute us for our beliefs. 2 Tim 3:12–13 [show]ERROR: The IP key is no longer sup­port­ed. Please use your access key, the test­ing key ‘TEST

We will be per­se­cut­ed, it isn’t a mat­ter of if but a mat­ter of when.

Continue in what we have start­ed. We can because God has breathed His Word to equip us. Equip that we can con­fi­dent, good exam­ples, full­filled at work, be at peace and more. Our vision of the future is to aquire stuff, God’s vision is dif­fer­ent. He wants us to bear fruit, to have peace, to know love, to be courageous–all the intrin­sic things.

How does that hap­pen? We need God to be fuel­ing us. We need brain foods. The Scriptures pro­vide us teach­ing and rebuk­ing. Rebuking as in don’t go over that bridge, it has col­lapsed. It pro­vides us with pow­er food as well.

We can know the Bible inside and out and not let it affect us — belemic bible read­ing. We need to pray (P.R.A.Y.) the scrip­ture. Praise God. See in scrip­ture who God is and praise Him. Repentance, allow God’s Word to rebuke us to the point of con­fess­ing our sin. Ask, ask for pow­er to live the Christ cen­tered life. Yield to what God wants to teach and do in our lives.

When we pray the scrip­ture, we will ask for the right things, God’s will.

We don’t real­ly know what will come our way in real­i­ty six months from now. But when we rely on God, we know every­thing will be tak­en care of.

What God wants is that we are ful­ly equipped that when the world around us is col­laps­ing we are a strong­hold for God.
