WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO MOVE PEOPLE?

INTRO: A QUESTION ASKED BY EVERY PASTOR IN AMERICA.

1: WHAT MOVED THE DISCIPLES?

A) BEING AT THE FEET OF JESUS

B) WALKING WITH HIM DAILY

C) HAVING ONE ON ONE CONSULTS WITH HIM

POINT: THEY ALL HAD A DEEP REAL PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. THEY ALSO HAD THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ALLOWING THEM TO DO WONDEROUS WORKS.

2: DOES SACRIFICE PLAY A PART IN THEIR LIVES?

A) YES,

B) PERSONALLY THEY ALL LEFT THEIR OLD LIVES

C) MANY WALKED AWAY FROM ESTABLISHED WAYS OF LIVING

POINT: THE TWELVE ALL HAD TO SACRIFICE THINGS IN THEIR LIVES TO BE DISCIPLES OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. NOT KNOWING THEIR REWARD WOULD GREATLY OUT WEIGH THE COST.

BODY: PSALM 69:1-9

1: A KING’S CRY FOR HELP

A) THIS PSALM IS CONNECTED TO THE CRUCIFIXION OF CHRIST

B) IT BEGINS BY SAYING SAVE ME O GOD

C) THE LEVEL OF SACRIFICE IS EVIDENT IN THE WORDS

POINT: THIS SCRIPTURE IS A COMPLETE VIEW INTO THE HEART OF KING DAVID. THIS MUSICAL PIECE OR POEM WHATEVER YOU WOULD DESCRIBE IT AS IS A CLEAR LOOK INTO THE KING’S HEART.

2: SACRIFICE

A) GIVING UP OF SOMETHING VALUABLE OR IMPORTANT FOR SOEMBODY OR SOMETHING ELSE TO BE CONSIDERED OF MORE VALUE OR IMPORTANCE.

B) WHAT DID JESUS CHRIST COST YOU?

C) HOW MANY THINGS OF VALUE OR IMPORTANCE DID YOU LOSE OR GIVE UP?

POINT: GOD NEVER SAYS GIVE ME YOUR MOST TREASURED THINGS, HE SAYS GIVE ME YOUR HEART, YOUR MIND, AND YOUR SOUL.

3: HEART, MIND, SOUL

A) HEART, ALLOWING GOD TO DWELL IN YOU

B) GIVING YOUR LOVE AND COMPASSION TO JESUS CHIRST

C) MIND, ALLOWING GOD TO SATURATE YOUR MIND, TO CHANGE YOUR THINKING, GIVE YOU A NEW OUTLOOK ON LIFE.

D) SOUL, ASKING GOD TO SAVE YOU, INVITING JESUS CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE, GIVING GOD THE ESSENCE OF YOUR LIFE FORCE.

POINT: GOD WANTS THE HEART TO MAKE IT STRONGER, TO RELEIVE FEAR AND ANXIETY. HE WANTS THE MIND TO FILL IT WITH TRUTH AND ALLOW IT TO GROW AND MATURE. THE SOUL IS WHAT GOD SETS FREE.

CONCLUSION: 1 JOHN 3:16 SAYS WE OUGHT TO LAY DOWN OUR LIVES FOR THE BRETHERN.

A SACRIFICE IS WHAT GOD ASKED OF JESUS CHRIST.

GOD’S PEOPLE SHOULD BE WILLING TO SACRIFICE THINGS IN THERE OWN LIVES TO BECOME CHRISTLIKE.
