Sermons about Prepared
Hans takes us through second message in our new Acts Series "Be Prepared" from Chapter 1:12-26 exhorting the congregation at the Oaks to always be prepared to live out God's mission of making disciples by being prayerful and Spirit-led.
Praise should begin with meditation and the thoughts MUST be acted upon. Praise is exhibited by action. It's not about your style or mine when praising God, or what you are comfortable doing, it's about giving God praise in a manner which pleases Him. Key Points: !) A Personality of Praise is Prepared to praise (Exodus 15:20-21); 2) A Personality of Praise Pushes to praise (Psalms 126:5-6); and 3) A Personality of Praise has Perks (Psalms 22:3)
The end is coming - there is an end time. and all that will be left is a new world - a new hope. This is pointedly following up on the thought from 2 Peter 3.10-12, what sort of people ought you to be - out of holiness - acknowledging who He is and all that He has done for us - how can I live out this ought to my neighbors, to my friends, to my kids - essentially a life of godliness. How we live a life that desires for Him to teach us and to restore the brokenness in us? We know He has restored our hearts of the brokenness that is in them - the sin and sorrow and shame in your Son - how can I live out the life You have called me to in your scriptures? This isn't about the rules, because we are unable to live out a life that is governed by rules, hoping that we might make good on the work He has started, but instead about seeking to trust and be found in Him. In the midst of struggles, pain, and suffering, we are all looking for answers. And in trying to find those answers we just push on, mistaking so-called-diligence for obedience. Peter want us to see how the way to fight against the false teachings is not just knowledge and action, but preparedness. We must be prepared to engage in the redemptive work He is doing.
Jesus said the harvest truly is plenteous. Believers are faced with three responsibilities to reap in Christ's harvest field: They need to embrace the fact of a ready harvest, the must address the failure for not reaping the ready harvest and they must follow the footsteps for reaping the prepared harvest. This message will inspire you to be busy about the Lord's business of sowing and reaping in the Lord's harvest field of souls.
