FILTER ALL THROUGH LOVE...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

FILTER: a device that is used to remove something that is not wanted,

a device that limits light, sound, electronic noises from passing through...

Text:

Philippians 4:13 (KJV) I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Philippians 4:13 (NIV) I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:13 (NLT) For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

Philippians 4:13 (MSG) Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the

One who makes me who I am.

A GREAT TEACHER DOES MORE THAN GET YOU TO KNOW FACTS...

A GREAT TEACHER ASK QUESTIONS AND TEACHES YOU HOW TO ASK QUESTIONS.

A GREAT TEACHER WILL TRAIN YOU TO THINK FOR YOURSELF...

What questions have you ask yourself?

WHO AM I?

WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO ME?

Have you ever thought about the questions we should answer?

Have you ever had a discussion with your family and friends to FOCUS your ATTENTION on

what really matters to me?

How important is your time? family? your job? money? God? The church? The Bible?

IF YOU DO NOT THINK ON THESE THINGS, IT WILL BE QUE SERA, SERA, WHAT WILL BE,

WILL BE...

WE ALL HAVE FOLLOWED THE LESSONS THAT OTHERS HAVE TAUGHT US...

JOEY AND RORY HAVE BEEN IN THE PUBLIC EYE. THEY HAD A DOWNS SYNDROME BABY?

THEN CANCER CAME TO HELP JOEY AND RORY FOCUS...

THEY THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT IS REALLING IMPORTANT TO ME?

***WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO ME?

Not planning our day around a TV set, Paying our bills and staying out of debt

That's important to me, That's important to me

Opening the windows and letting in air, Holding hands when we're saying a prayer

That's important to me, Yeah, that's important to me

Having somebody to share my life, Loving my husband and being a wife

And the very best mother I can be, That's important to me

Telling the truth and being real, Feeding my family a home cooked meal

That's important to me, That's important to me

Planting a garden and watching it grow, Keeping it country on the radio

That's important to me, Yeah, that's important to me

Always having you to hold, Being beside you when we grow old

And they plant us 'neath that big old tree, That's important to me

Believing our dreams will take us somewhere, Still being ourselves if we ever get there

That's important to me, That's important to me

Yeah, that's important to me, That's important to me, That's important to me

WE MUST FILTER OUR TIME AND WORDS THROUGH THE THOUGHT PROCESS ---AND

MAKE THE CHOICES WEIGH THE PRICE, COST, VALUE, WORTH OF WHAT I AM DOING?

Jude 1:22 (KJV) And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear,

pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 24 Now unto him that is

able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with

exceeding joy,

Jude 1:22 (NLT) And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering.

23 Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so

with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives. 24 Now all glory to God, who is able to keep

you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.

Jude 1:22-24 (MSG) Go easy on those who hesitate in the faith. 23 Go after those who take the wrong way.

Be tender with sinners, but not soft on sin. The sin itself stinks to high heaven. 24 And now to him who can

keep you on your feet, standing tall in his bright presence, fresh and celebrating—

WHAT DO WE VALUE? WHAT IS OUR VALUE SYSTEM?

DOES OUR VALUE SYSTEM ALIGN WITH GOD'S ETERNAL VALUES?

WHAT DOES SATAN VALUE? WHAT DOES THE WORLD VALUE?

BE HONEST --- WHAT DO YOU VALUE...

Matthew 6:33 (KJV) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things

shall be added unto you.

WE MUST FILTER OUR VALUE SYSTEMS --- WHAT IF I CAN NOT FIX IT?

PAUL THOUGHT ABOUT MAN'S VALUE SYSTEMS ---

SAUL'S VALUES WERE DIFFERENT THAN PAUL'S VALUES?

WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE? PAUL SAW THE LIGHT...

WE MUST FILTER ALL WE DO THROUGH GOD'S WORD...

1 Peter 2:21 (KJV) For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us

an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed
