  Study Tools

John 7:38

Some people don’t want rivers of living water

Many are happy where they are---WHAT IF THIS WAS

AVAILABLE TODAY

Tired of charismatics- FALL DOWN---FREAK OUT

3 things that affect society— BARNA

1. Celebrities

2. Movies

3. Sports

Notice Christians aren’t on that list---

Not in the TOP 29

We have no influence in the world at all---

WE”RE NOT INFLUENCING

Set on TBN- thinking they’re changing the world

Romans 8:5-8

So lets talking about the RENEWING OF OUR MINDS

That’s how we become effective- NOT – REP, DEM.

I believe satan has power to attack CHURCH---

Most problems---are in our MIND

1. You’re mind never stops

You’re having thoughts Right now- bible, Nails, bite mine, Holding hands, marriage, Cant believe she wore that---YOUR MIND NEVER STOPS

WE have so many thoughts----DON”T REMEMBER MOST

2. We have conditioned our mind- Trained to respond—How we’ve trained it

someone says, “YOU LOOK NICE TODAY”

realist- THANK YOU

Pessimist- Are you saying I usually don’t

Narcissist- Yes I do- Glad I’m not the only one- tell me more

Synic- trying to get me to work in CHILDRENS CHURCH

I DON”T HAVE TO …SERVE- TITHE- U DON’T—

no harvest- still saved

Introvert, talkative, out going, shy---

Our minds condition to respond like that

BUT THIS RIVER HAS LIVING WATERS—Holy SPIRIT

So if thoughts are leading to death----

they’re not of the SPIRIT

WE ARE HERE TO HAVE LIFE---

TREE OF KNOWLEDGE of GOOD AND EVIL-----TREE OF LIFE

God would rather us have LIFE-than KNOWLEDGE

How we think determines where we GET----

are we seeking knowledge or LIFE

If I had married, If I lived here, ----

None of that changes anything

3. Every thought moves us forward or shuts us down

Romans 8:6-----FLESH THOUGHTS or SPIRIT THOUGHTS

One enables, empowers, or ROBS and HURTS

ONE LEADS TO DEATH, ONE LEADS TO LIFE

“I don’t think I’ll ever… marriage, kids, job,”

Not every decision is SPIRITUAL---Driving around KRISPY KREME

Thoughts toward- HOPE< TRUTH, FAITH, GOOD, LOVE,

God will never brings condemnation, despair, ridicule

WHEN YOU HEAR HOW BAD YOU ARE------CANT BE THE SPIRIT

FROM PREACHER or YOURSELF

4. It’s natural to choose death- VS 7

When most people have time to think- worries, problems, anxiety

People hate to be alone with themselves---SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

That’s why people watch TV-

Distraction from being alone w/ yourself

YOUTH GOING TO CAMP---

Got rid of noise, FOUND THEMSELVES

Cant find yourself- with headphones on

It’s natural to choose death—

That’s why Christians respond to condemnation.

2 Tim 1:7

1 Cor 2:16

Holy Spirit gives us the power to choose our thought—Don’t think Bap, Cath.

I have the mind oF Christ- To keep from choosing death

It’s a discipline—

You’ve learned to listen to WRONG THOUGHTS---RIGHT

You are good—

Don’t give up- you can over come- You’re not stuck

JESUS WANTS YOU TO HAVE LIFE---

Tell your mind I’M ALIVE

Thing like a giant-

get rid of negative thinking- HOME, JOB, MARRIAGE

1 SAMUEL 30:6>>strengthen yourself---

Don’t put yourself down

STOP!!! GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THE MIND OF CHIRST
