Sermon Sunday

Sermon Sunday - Code Orange Revival Edition

Code Orange Revival is well under way.  Tonight was night five.  So, for this edition of Sermon Sunday, I will be sharing a bit of each nights message.  Enjoy!

Night One - Pastor Craig Groeschel
He spoke about how to be an idiot for Christ. 
1. Obey Irrationally Acts 5:29
2. Give Extravagantly Acts 4:34-35
3. Do What Others Believe Can't Be Done Acts 4: 29-30

- You are not who others say you are.  You are who He says you are!

Night Two - Pastor Jentzen Franklin
He spoke about the faithfulness of God.
Psalm 89:1-2, 30-34
- Our lives can be stepping stones or stumbling blocks for ourselves and our children.
- Don't despise the days of small beginnings
- We need to get our eyes off of material things and focus more on eternity.

Night Three - Pastor Matt Chandler
He spoke about the reminder that everything God does is for His glory.
- Joy and happiness are different.  We don't control our happiness.
- Culture says that it is all about us.  The Bible says it is all about the glory of His name.

Isaiah 43, Isaiah 49, Psalm 106, Romans 9, 2 Samuel 7, 1 Samuel 12, John 7:8, John 14, John 12, John 17, Romans 3:25-30, John 16:14, 1 Corinthians 10:31, Romans 11  (If you want a few examples!)
- We are supposed to do everything we do to the glory of God
- The Bible is not a road map to life.  You will end up thinking you are the hero to every story.
- He gives us pain and tears because He loves us.

- God is after my joy because my joy brings Him glory.
- I am not the center of the universe!!

- God isn't in love with the future version of me.
- The cross says, "I've handled that. I made provision."

Night Four - Christine Caine
She spoke on the kind of God we serve.
- The kind of house that brings glory and fame to the Lord is the kind of house we should build.
- We serve a God who does not believe in expiration's dates.  Hebrews 11:11
- He wants to make the impossible possible in our lives.
- When was the last time you just believed in Him?

- We are well able to do what God has called us to do.  Reports may say no, but God says yes.
- God is still the God who parted the Red Sea.
- We need to elevate our lives to be in alignment with God.

We give up on God because...
1. We confuse our due dates and Gods timing Genesis 18:10
2. God doesn't do it our way.

There is no promise, no prayer, no need too big for our God.

Night Five - Pastor Ed Young
He spoke on inviting people to church and why we need your seat.
- Christians are stuck in a marina mentality.  We are tied up to the dock and just out of reach people are drowning.
- How is drowning in your life?
- All we have to do is let go of our poor flotation device and grab onto Jesus.
- The radically rescued rescue radically.
Matthew 28:19-20, Luke 19:10

- The only thing Jesus built was the Church.
- We are saved to share - share our rescue story.

- The ring is the thing.
- The hope is the rope.
- Pull so the House is full.
- Everyone is a part of the pull.  If you aren't serving, you are swerving.
