Summary: God has a plan for your life - Its 'The Yes' Plan

THE YES!

Stand & Declare these words –

‘The Anthem of The Original’

o I am created as The Original – there is nobody like me – I am unique – I am The Masterpiece – The one of a Kind –

o Because I am The Original – I am designed to fulfil a special plan that nobody else in the world is able to do

o The Plan of God for my life is real enough to impact my present and my future – and change the world around me! –

o (What makes me The Original? Discuss with 2 people around you)

o I have a 16 month old son,

o who has the adventure spirit of David Livingstone and Jim Corbett all packed up within him – he wants to explore and learn everything around him – Since he knows he is The Original he is desperate to let the world know the original qualities within him

o This adventure spirit makes him reach out for everything within his reach – Imagine this our house – and for a few moments imagine Josiah is running around the corners of this house – he reaches out his hand for the glass – imagine the response of his parents – NO –

o Josiah moves his hand and reaches for the laptop screen – I shout – NO

o Under the sofa – Neena shout NO

o Jump out of the balcony – we shout – NO

o No wonder recently my son – probably in a moment of frustration – to live in such a negative world - shouts out – NO – NO –NO - NO

o As followers of Jesus – many times – we have the same understanding regarding our walk with Jesus – and even when others want to follow Jesus we present this NO-religion –

o We have this idea about this Jesus-experience – that there is big vast world to enjoy outside – but if you choose to follow Jesus – you are stuck up in this small room – hearing NO TO EVERYTHING YOU FEEL YOU WANT TO DO

o NO SMOKING

o NO BAD LANGUAGE

o NO HAIR-CUT

o NO TORN JEANS

o NO GOING THERE – NO GOING HERE

o NO DON’T TOUCH THAT – NO DON’T TOUCH THIS

o NO NOT THAT MOVIE –

o NO NOT THAT SONG

o NO NO NO – DON’T GO NEAR THAT BOTTLE

o NO NOT THAT BOOK

o NO NOT THAT

o NO DON’T LOOK THERE – DON’T WEAR THAT

o Many feel if I don’t do all these things – I will probably get a front seat in heaven! – but is this what this Jesus Experience all about – a morbid life of hearing No and deciding to say NO to cool things in life?

o To unpack this interesting world of NO – we need to understand the real nature of the word which is our topic for discussion tonight – the word YES!

o I was generally analyzing the word YES during the day

o It could start early morning – Yes, darling, I will definitely have tea

o Yes, I will be late from office

o Yes, this is Jacob Mathew on phone

o Yes, you are the right man for the job

o Yes, Sir, I will make sure it is done by 4 pm

o Yes, go ahead, you have my permission

o Yes, I do

o Yes, I will be part of this team

o Yes, I will do whatever it takes to find the root of the problem

o The more you analyze the use of this word YES and No, you discover something – tell me when do you and I use the words YES and No?(response)

o no one goes around saying the word YES in vacuum - or it would be weird if someone keeps saying YES YES YES – The word YES or NO is always in response to a question or to a situation!

o To discover what this Jesus-experience is all about and whether it is just a NO-religion – I want us to look at 3 true events as recorded by the Bible

o Genesis 2: 8-17(read)

o God creates the beautiful world – designs a fabulous garden for Adam and Eve to call it their home – gives them an all-access pass to everything in the garden – except eating fruits from 2 particular trees – God basically told Adam & Eve –

 you know what guys? – this whole place is just for you to enjoy – If your question is – can we swim in that river - YES go ahead

 – You will find gold towards the other side – If your question is – can we make decorations with this pure gold – make chairs of gold – plates of gold – beds of gold – YES! Go ahead!
