The Book of Job… (7) Saved… or Lost?

 

CELEBRATORS… Job 42:12a says something rather fascinating… The Lord BLESSED the LATTER PART of Job’s life more than the FIRST… Not sure about you Celebrators – but I WANT THATI WANT THAT FOR ME and I WANT THAT FOR YOU! And I’m pretty sure since God did that for JOB – that He wants to do the same for YOUBLESS YOU TOO! Each week of this series we’ve looked closely at the RESPONSES of JOB when ‘all hell broke loose in his life’ – to see how JOB RESPONDED to receive such a BLESSING in his LATER LIFE! This last week we’ll be looking closely at how Job’s PERSPECTIVE towards PEOPLE changed in the course of these events in his life! I think you’ll find it rather FASCINATING… as did I! Whenever we face difficult circumstances in life – if we are in tune with the SPIRITWE SEE PEOPLE DIFFERENTLY! Don’t miss this last week!!!!

 

 

Below is a sneak-peak of this week’s message… (7) Saved… or Lost?

 

The CLOSER WE WALK WITH CHRIST… we too… begin to SEE PEOPLETHE WAY GOD SEES PEOPLE! One of Two ways... SAVED... or LOST?

 

You can always tell who is FIRED UP about REACHING the LOST!

YOU NEVER FORGET WHAT THAT FEELING WAS LIKE! (Or have you?)

 

We gotta FEEL what GOD FEELS! When you lose something of VALUE - you DO something about it! GOD DID... JESUS is what He DID!

 

If you say you genuinely FEEL what GOD FEELS... then let me ask... HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU REACHED FOR CHRIST THIS WEEK?

 

If you know Jesus personally... YOU are an AGENT OF RECONCILIATION!

BRINGING those who are FAR FROM HIM... NEAR TO HIM!

 

If we SEE what GOD SEES... FEEL what GOD FEELS... we will DO what GOD SAYS! His words are not just INFORMATION... they are REVELATION! (ACTION!!)

                                                                                                 

 

Praying you have a “BLESSED” Week Celebrators!!

SATURDAY/SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (THE BOOK OF JOB 6)

 

The Book of Job… (6) IT’S NOT ABOUT ME!

 

CELEBRATORS… Job 42:12a says something rather fascinating… The Lord BLESSED the LATTER PART of Job’s life more than the FIRST… Not sure about you Celebrators – but I WANT THATI WANT THAT FOR ME and I WANT THAT FOR YOU! And I’m pretty sure since God did that for JOB – that He wants to do the same for YOUBLESS YOU TOO! Each week of this series we’re looking closely at the RESPONSES of JOB when ‘all hell broke loose in his life’ – to see how JOB RESPONDED to receive such a BLESSING in his LATER LIFE! This particular week we’re talking about understanding that many of the BLESSINGS from God we receive from God come as a direct result from realizing… IT'S NOT ABOUT ME! Should be a FUN week – Don’t Miss It!

 

 

Below is a sneak-peak of this week’s message…

(6) IT’S NOT ABOUT ME!

 

Job 38-40… God says… “Brace yourself like a man...”

Job wondered... 'Why's this happening to ME?'

God Speaks... “IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU... IT'S ALL ABOUT ME!”

 

Wanna be BLESSED? Then stop focusing on the SIZE of your PROBLEM and start focusing on the SIZE of your GOD!

 

Job 38-40… We have a GOD that's BIGGER than our PROBLEMS... He's BIGGER than ANYTHING going on in your life! (BELIEVE IT!)

 

Do you view the CHURCH more as a RESTAURANT (A Place to BE SERVED) or as a FAMILY (A Place TO SERVE)...?

 

If you don't have TIME to dedicate to what JESUS dedicated HIS TIME to (The Church)… YOU'RE TOO BUSY!

 

Ck-Out John 17:15 Today… JESUS didn’t call us to RETRACT ourselves FROM the COMMUNITY…  He called us to IMPACT those IN our COMMUNITY!

                                                                                                 

 

Praying you have a “BLESSED” Week Celebrators!!
