Empty Vessels

Introduction: Elisha has just returned from the adventure with the 3 kings and the miracle of God’s provision of water in the desert – the valley of ditches. Now Elisha is confronted by a widow on one of the sons of the prophets. This group called “sons of the prophets” was made up of men who were called to serve the prophet and to learn from the prophet as they traveled together. Our desire today is to review the story of this miracle of empty vessels and to make application from the story to our personal walks of faith as well as our journey of faith together as the Fairview Family.

The Pursuing Love of God

Introduction: Today we begin a series of messages on the subject of God’s Love. Read Ephesians 3:14-21 now. In Ephesians 1 Paul describes the eternal relationship we enjoy with God once we have trusted in Jesus alone and experience as a result of this trust having our lives eternally joined to Jesus life. Paul describes it with the phrase “in Christ”. Chapter 1 gives us many of the benefits of this relationship.

The Transforming Love of God – How it Works-part 1

Introduction: Throughout this month of February we have focused our attention of the concept of God’s love for us. The Apostle Paul prayed that we may know the love of God in its fullness. We saw together that God’s love is both a pursuing love and a compelling love. Last week we began to consider the truth that God’s love is a transforming love. We determined to think about this aspect of God’s love from the big picture viewpoint. Through Biblical examples and Scripture we saw that God’s love transforms people in 4 primary ways. First, God transforms who we are when we are born again. Second, God transforms what we believe about everything. His Word, as revealed by His Spirit, becomes our authority for understanding everything. Every thought is to be brought captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6) Thirdly, God then transforms how we live. Lastly, God transforms what we pursue. This is not a one-time process through this 4 step cycle. God continues to transform us in these ways as we journey through this part of our life with God. Ephesians 2:10 describes this process with the words “we are His workmanship”. The ultimate purpose of this work of transformation is to make us more and more like Jesus in every way and to lead us to the pursuit of God’s Kingdom and Righteousness above everything else. This transformation is a work from the inside out. The Holy Spirit who comes to dwell within us when we are born again leads this transformation process.
