Good evening, everyone! I have a night cap for you and it’s the savory kind. Here’s more of Pastor Don’s sermon from last Sunday.
We can’t depend on the approval of the crowd because the crowd isn’t aways right. We can’t let prejudices get in the way of ministering to someone. Jesus had to go and break down that wall to make ministry possible. The woman at the well thought a man was the answer to what could satisfy her. Only one person can bring satisfaction to your life and that is Jesus Christ. When someone tells you how much value you have it changes everything. You have value no matter what anyone tells you. It’s not about them, but Jesus. God knows your potential because he created you. Influence is the power to cause effect in a tangible way. Jesus made the woman understand who she was. She was satisfied by him and thought he could be the Christ.
You can have all types of knowledge about Jesus and never know Jesus. That’s a bad place to be. The woman became different after her encounter with Jesus. Know what you got and make your family and friends thirsty for what you have.
When men are out of order, everything is out of order. God gave Adam dominion and when he was where he wasn’t suppose to be, God came coming. God knows other voices will lead you to think of yourself contrary to what God said. We live out what is in our hearts. We can’t identify with what others say, but who he is. It’s the blood of Christ that cleanses us. The world wants to remind you of how bad you are or how bad you use to be.
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
Galatians 2:20 NKJV
When Jesus cleans house, he cleans everything. It’s about influence. Who the Son sets free is free indeed. Don’t let the devil shame you.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
II Corinthians 5:17 NKJV
You are right on God’s eyes. You are Holy and blameless, so stop beating yourself up. When you have an interaction with Jesus, everything changes.
