JESUS SHOWS ME HOW:

1. WHEN HIS SOUL WAS TROUBLED!

“Now My soul is troubled…… Jn.12:27a

WHY WAS HE SO UPSET?

A. (Rev.13:8) _______________________________________
B. (Isa.53:4-6) ______________________________________
C. (Dan.9:25-26) ____________________________________
D. (Jn.3:16) _________________________________________
E. (Jn.10:17-18) _____________________________________
F. IT WAS BECAUSE HE WAS HUMAN AND HE FELT THE
FULL WEIGHT OF HIS IMPENDING UNJUST, CRUEL,
AND SHAMEFUL DEATH!

“(7) who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and
supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save
Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, (8) though He
was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.”
Heb.5:7-8

<>“He who could still the sea and bid the storms retreat was tempest tossed
in His own soul, and cast about for anchorage. He who could drive the
fever from its lair (resting place) or send a legion of demons into the
deep, yet He was nevertheless troubled in spirit and cried, `What shall I
say’? Master of all worlds, supreme amongst the angels, and adored at
His Father’s right hand, yet He confesses, `Now is my soul troubled.’
Lord of all, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered.
How near akin it makes Him to us! How human!
Charles Spurgeon<>

2. BY ASKING AN IMPORTANT QUESTION!

“….. what shall I say? `Father save Me from this hour’?... Jn.12:27b

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know
what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes
intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Rom.8:26

<>“If God answered every prayer of mine, I would have married the
wrong man seven times.”
Ruth Graham<>


3. BY GIVING A PROFOUND ANSWER!

“…..But for this purpose I came to this hour. (28) Father, glorify Your
name….” Jn.12:27c-28a

“For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and
invisible, rank after rank of angels—everything got started in Him and
finds its purpose in Him.” Col.1:16 (Msg)

<>“Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is
meaningless.”
Bertrand Russell, Atheist<>


4. BY SEEKING HIS FATHER’S APPROVAL!

“`Father, glorify Your name.’ Then a voice came from heaven, saying, `I
have both glorified it and will glorify it again.” Jn.12:28

SO WHAT?

A. Whatever I am going through, He cares!

“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our
weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”
Heb.4:15
B. When my soul is troubled, I need to ask the
same question Jesus did!

“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant
will be also. If anyone serves Me him My Father will honor.” Jn.12:26

C. Don’t be surprised if sometimes things get
worse before they get better after I pray!

“(32) And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to
Myself. (33) This He said, signifying by what death He would die.”
Jn.12:32-33

D. Remember, when I pray God will always take
the course that brings Him the greatest glory!

“…Then a voice came from heaven, saying, `I have glorified it and will
glorify it again.” Jn.12:28b

E. Remember, God gives His greatest blessing to
those who leave the choice with Him!

“(8) And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and
became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. (9)
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which
is above every name, (10) that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, (11)
and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of
God the Father.” Phil.2:8-11

F. This prayer is powerful!

“….Father, glorify Your name……” Jn.12:28a

NOW WHAT?

SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

• The theme of this message is what to pray when I don’t know
what to pray!

1. Have I ever faced a trial/struggle and did not know
how to pray? Share it.
2. Read (Jn.12:23-33). As He moved towards the cross
(the most difficult trial He would ever face), what
question did Jesus ask in (v.27)? Is that relevant to
me and my prayer life as I face the trials of life? How
so?
3. Have I ever wondered why God wants me to pray?
What does (Jn.14:13) reveal about God’s ultimate
purpose for prayer. Pastor John MacArthur said:

“Contrary to much emphasis in the evangelical church today, true
prayer, like true worship, centers on God’s glory, not on man’s
needs. It is not simply to lay claim on God’s promises, much less
make demands of Him, but to acknowledge His sovereignty, to see
the display of His glory, and to obey His will.”

Do I agree with this quote? How should it affect how
I pray?
4. Review the applications of the SO WHAT section of
the outline. Which one got my attention during the
message and why? Discuss.
5. What do I need to pray about right now and say to
God, “Father, glorify Your name”? What blessing
can I expect from God when I leave the final choice
up to Him (see Phil.2:5-11)?

Daily Bible Reading

Mon (Jn.12:23-33) Jesus prayer as He pondered the cross
Tue (Jn.14:13) The ultimate purpose of prayer
Wed (Ps.103:13) The Lord cares about my trials
Thu (Jn.11:1-7) Things may get worse before they get better after I have prayed
Fri (Phil.2:7-11) The Lord will answer my prayers (yes, no, wait) so as to
bring Himself the greatest glory
Sat (Jn.12:28) There is no greater prayer than this, and it brings the
manifest pleasure of God

<>“My mentor, Fred Smith, told me once that Christians, if given the choice between spiritual power and political power, will almost always choose political power. I agree with that and would even expand on it. Given the choice between the supernatural power described in the Bible and the power of money, fame, and status, for most Christians it’s a no brainer. Money, fame, and status win every time…But then, as the years go by, you eventually encounter something you can’t fix or escape, and you begin to realize that unless God does something, all the boats in the world won’t make any difference.”
Steve Brown, Radio Pastor<>

GOD DID SOMETHING IN JESUS CHRIST, WHO WALKED IN FREEDOM BY:

1. TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HIS GOD-GIVEN RESOURCES!

“(1) Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, (2) being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry.” Lk.4:1-2

• ___________________________________________________

2. CONFRONTING SATAN’S MENTAL ASSAULTS WITH TRUTH!

“(3) And the devil said to Him, `If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.’ (4) But Jesus answered him, saying, `It is written, `Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’ (5) Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. (6) And the devil said to Him, `All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. (7) Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.’ (8) And Jesus answered and said to him, `Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, `You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ (9) Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, `If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here. (10) For it is written: `He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you, (11) and, `In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ (12) And Jesus answered and said to him, `It has been said, `You shall not tempt the LORD your God.’ (13) Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.” Lk.4:3-13

• ___________________________________________________

3. REAPING THE STRENGTH THE SPIRIT GIVES TO THE OBEDIENT!

“Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went through all the surrounding region.” Lk.4:14

SO WHAT?

1. Disciples fight from victory, not to gain victory!

“(13) And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, (14) having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. (15) Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”
Col.2:13-15

2. Getting free is a gift, staying free is a battle!

“Therefore submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Ja.4:7

3. I must take advantage of my God given resources!

• (2Cor.5:17) My position in Christ!
• (Jam.5:13a) Prayer!
• (1Thes.5:19) My relationship to the Holy Spirit!
• (Jn.8:31-32) Scripture!

4. I need a within, a without, and an above strategy to walk and live in freedom!

<>“The Christian life is full of apparent contradictions. We are told that the way to rest in God is to be totally submitted to His will (Rom.12:1-2). Yet the believer who does so immediately discovers that he is at war. From within, from without, and from above he is harassed, resisted, afflicted, tormented, tripped up, sabotaged, and too often, defeated. When this happens over a long period of time, even though we are told not to grow weary in well doing (Gal.6:9), we do grow weary. We become discouraged. We begin to suffer battle fatigue. We become critical, bitter, even cynical, and too often deliberately sinful.”
Dr. Ed Murphy<>

• A within strategy (Ps.119:11): “Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
• A without strategy (Rom.13:14): “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
• An above strategy (Matt.26:41): “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

5. I need to learn to take my thoughts captive!

“(4) For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, (5) casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” 2Cor.10:4-5

• It is written (flesh): “I have made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I look upon a young woman? (Job 31:1)
• It is written (eyes): “If we endure (suffering), we shall also reign with Him…” 2Tim.2:12a
• It is written (pride): “And behold a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, `Lord, if you are willing, You can make me clean.’ Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him saying, ` I am willing; be cleansed.’ Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” Matt.8:2-3

NOW WHAT?
SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

• The theme of this message in how to enter into the freedom from sin that Jesus Christ has already won for those He has saved!

1. Has there ever been a time in my life when I encountered something I couldn’t fix (sin issue) and I realized that if God didn’t do something, no one or nothing could help me? Share it with the group.
2. Read (Lk.4:1-14). Did Jesus win His battle with Satan in the desert? Did Jesus win all His battles with Satan while He walked this earth? What does this have to do with my living in victory over sin (see Col.2:13-15). Do I fight spiritual warfare from victory or to gain victory?
3. Look up these verses on the resources God has made available to me to take advantage of in spiritual warfare. Am I taking advantage of or neglecting them?

• (2Cor.5:17) My position in Christ!
• (Jam.5:13a) Prayer!
• (1Thes.5:19) My relationship to the Holy Spirit!
• (Jn.8:31-32) Scripture

4. Sin is within (it’s personal, the flesh), it is without (it’s social, the world), and it is above (it’s supernatural, the devil). I need to address each one of these areas with Holy Spirit anointed truth? Look up these verses:

• Within, desire: (Ps.119:11)
• Without, opportunity: (Rom.13:14)
• Above, supernatural: (Matt.26:41)

5. Have I learned to take my thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ (see 2Cor.10:3-5)? How might I go about doing that?

Daily Bible Reading

Mon (Lk.4:1-14) Jesus walked in freedom from sin
Tue (Col.2:13-15) He makes that freedom available to me
Wed (Jam.4:7) Getting free is a gift, staying free is a battle
Thu (1Thes.5:19) I cannot quench the Spirit and walk in freedom
Fri (Jn.8:31-32) I cannot neglect Scripture and walk in freedom
Sat (Matt.26:41) I cannot neglect prayer and walk in freedom


Freedom: Its nature, experience, and process !
Clean

cd.17.06.02 July 2, 2017 Pastor Denny Mashburn

<>Give me liberty or give me death!
Patrick Henry<>

“Therefore if the Son makes you free you shall be free indeed.” Jn.8:36

LIBERTY IS EXPERIENCED:

1. BY AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS!

“(17) And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had
opened the book, He found the place where it was written: (18) `The Spirit
of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel
to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty
to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who
are oppressed; (19) to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.’”
Lk.4:17-19

2. BY CONTINUING IN HIS TRUTH!

“(31) Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, `If you abide in My
word, you are My disciples indeed. (32) And you shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.” Jn.8:31-32

3. BY THE PROCESS OF WALKING IN HIS SPIRIT!

“(1) There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ
Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. (2)
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the
law of sin and death. (3) For what the law could not do in that it was weak
through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful
flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, (4) that the
righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not
walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit…(13) For if you
live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death
the deeds of the body, you will live….(28) And we know that all things work
together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called
according to His purpose….(38) For I am persuaded that neither death nor
life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to
come, (39) or height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to
separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Rom.8:1-4, 13, 28, 38-39

4. BY GROWING IN HIS GRACE!

“(1) Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come
from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? (2) You lust and
do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war.
Yet you do not have because you do not ask. (3) You ask and do not receive
because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. (4)
Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world
is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world
makes himself an enemy of God. (5) Or do you think that the Scripture says
in vain, `The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously’? (6) But He gives
more grace. Therefore He says: `God resists the proud, but gives grace
to the humble.’ (7) Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will
flee from you. (8) Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse
your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (9)
Lament and mourn and weep! Let you laughter be turned to mourning, and
your joy to gloom. (10) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He
will lift you up.” Jam.4:1-10

SO WHAT (A FREEDOM CHECKLIST)?

1. Have I been born again?

“Jesus answered and said to him, `Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is
born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Jn.3:3

2. What is my attitude towards God’s Word

“(31)….If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. (32) And
you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Jn.8:31-32

3. Do my expectations of the Christian life
include the possibility of a certain level of
failure?

“I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do
good.” Rom.7:21

“For you brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an
opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Gal.5:13

<>“The successful Christian life must have built into it a certain
expectation of failure.”
Peter Gilquist<>

4. Do I have a spiritual strategy to appropriate
God’s grace when I face the world, flesh and
devil!

“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
Jam.4:7

“But Jesus answered him, saying, `It is written….” Lk.4:4

<>“In any battle between the imagination and the will, the will loses out
every time.”
Dr. Billy Graham<>

SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

• The theme of this message is spiritual freedom, how it is
obtained, how it is maintained, and getting rid of unrealistic
expectations about it.

1. Does Patrick Henry’s quote: “Give me liberty or give
me death,” have any implications for the Christian
life? If so, how so?
2. When I think of freedom in the Christian life, how
would I define it with my present understanding of
Scripture and personal experience? What is the
Christian free from?
3. (Read Jn.3:1-17) What must happen before a sinner
can begin to experience freedom in Christ? How is a
sinner born again? Explain it.
4. Is my attitude toward the Word of God important in
experiencing and maintaining freedom? (Read
Jn.8:31-36). What happens when a Christian does
not spend time in God’s word?
5. What is the key to growing in grace (see Jam.4:6).
Dr. Billy Graham said: “In any battle between the
imagination and the will, the will loses out every
time.” So what? Is it fair to say that my battle with
the world, flesh, and the devil is a battle for my
mind? What does (2Cor.10:3-5) teach me about this
battle? What was the simple strategy Jesus used to
wage war with Satan in (Lk.4:1-13)? Will God give
me the grace to do this if I humble myself before Him?

Daily Bible Reading

Mon (John 3:1-17) Freedom begins with being born again
Tue (Jn.8:31-36) Freedom is maintained and deepened by continuing in
the Truth
Wed (Rom.8:1-39) Freedom is a product of living my daily life in the
power of the Spirit
Thu (Jam.4:1-10) Freedom requires daily grace to overcome the world,
flesh, and devil
Fri (Rom.7:13-25) Freedom is achieved in the context of failure
Sat (Gal.5:1-15) Freedom is not to be used as an opportunity for the flesh



Am I A Hearer Or A Doer Of The Word?

June 25, 2017 cd# 17.06.25 <><><> “I try to avoid things that make me fat: scales, photographs, and mirrors! <><><> DOERS LOOK IN THE MIRROR OF GOD’S WORD AND: 1. RECEIVE IT! “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” Jam.1:21 2. PRACTICE IT! “(22) But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. (23) For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; (24) for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. (25) But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” Jam.1:22-25 <><><> “Many people have the mistaken idea that hearing a good sermon or Bible study is what makes them grow and get God’s blessing. It is not the hearing but the doing that brings blessing. Too many Christians mark their Bibles, but their Bibles never mark them! If you think you are spiritual because you hear the Word, then you are only kidding (deceiving) yourself.” Warren Wiersbe <><><> 3. PRACTICE IT BY CONTROLLING THEIR SPEECH! “If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.” Jam.1:26 4. PRACTICE IT BY SERVING THE NEEDY! “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble….” Jam.1:27a 5. PRACTICE IT BY SEPARATING FROM THE WORLD! “....and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” Jam.1:27b SO WHAT? 1. Hearers only of the Word will receive the shock of their life on judgment day! “(21) Not everyone who says to Me, `Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. (22) Many will say to Me in that day, `Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? (23) And then I will declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from Me you who practice lawlessness!’” Matt.7:21-23 2. Obedience to the Word brings me the blessing of God! “But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” Jam.1:25 3. What comes out of my mouth is a key indicator of the condition of my heart! “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Lk.6:45 4. How I respond to the needy is a key indicator of who my God is! “(5) Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God, (6) Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps truth forever, (7) Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners. (8) The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; the LORD raises those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous. (9) The LORD watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; but the way of the wicked He turns upside down.” Ps.146:5-9 5. If I love the world, then I don’t love God! “(15) Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (16) For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” 1Jn.2:15-16 NOW WHAT? SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: • The theme of this message is that those who have experienced saving faith are doers of the word and not hearers only. Doers display some noticeable characteristics. 1. Someone has said: “When I look into a mirror I think I’ve got to stop eating cheese. But when I look at cheese, I think I’ve got to stop looking into mirrors.” Do I like looking into mirrors? Why or why not? 2. Read (Jam.1:21-27). Why is God’s Word compared to a mirror? Why would anyone be afraid to look into that mirror (see Jn.3:19-21). 3. (Read Matt.7:21-23). Who is going to be shocked on Judgement Day, hearers or doers of the Word? What do hearers practice (see v.23)? 4. How do doers of the Word talk (see Jam.1:26). How do doers of the Word respond to people in need (see Jam.1:27). 5. How do doers separate themselves from the world? What are the three root problems of sin everyone has to deal with (see 1Jn.2:15-16)? How should I deal with the desire to sin (see Ps.119:11) and the opportunity to sin (see Rom.13:14)? DAILY BIBLE READING Mon (Jam.1:21-27) Doers of the Word and not hearers only Tue (Matt.7:21-23) Doers will inherit the kingdom of God Wed (Matt.25:31-46) How I treat the needy reveals how I treat Christ Thu (Lk.6:45) My mouth is a reflection of my heart Fri (Ps.146:5-9) God is a Father to the needy Sat (1Jn.2:15-16) If I love the world, the love of the Father is not in me

WHO ENDURES SHAMEFUL PRODIGALITY! “(11) Then He said: `A certain man had two sons. (12) And the younger of them said to his father, `Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. (13) And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. (14) But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land and he began to be in want. (15) Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. (16) And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.” Lk.15:11-16 <><><> “A man’s worst difficulties begin when he is able to do just as he likes.” Thomas Huxley <><><> 2. WHO BRINGS A CHILD TO TRUE REPENTANCE BY HIS GOODNESS! “(17) But when he came to himself, he said, `How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! (18) I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, `Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, (19) and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” Lk.15:17-19 3. WHO LONGS TO FORGIVE! “(20) And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. (21) And the son said to him, `Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “(22) But the father said to his servants, `Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. (23) And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry, (24) for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” Lk.15:20-24 4. WHO IS DESPISED BY THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS! “(25) Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. (26) So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. (27) And he said to him, `Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf. (28) But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him. (29) So he answered and said to his father, `Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat that I might make merry with my friends. (30) But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots you killed the fatted calf for him.’ (31) And he said to him, `Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. (32) It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.” Lk.15:25-32 SO WHAT? 1. Dads, when our children remember us, will they remember our goodness? “Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance.” Rom.2:4 2. Sin, whether it be prodigality or self- righteousness, promises freedom but brings slavery! “Jesus answered them, `Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.” Jn.8:34 3. Genuine repentance is a paradoxical work of God! “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted, but the sorrow of the world produces death.” 2Cor.7:10 <><><> “I do not hesitate to assert that this is perhaps the most subtle and delicate test as to whether we have repented, or where we are: our attitude towards God. Have you noticed it in the Psalm? The one against whom David has sinned is God, and yet the one he desires above all is God. That is the difference between remorse and repentance. The man who has not repented, but who is only experiencing remorse, when he realizes he has done something against God, avoids God…The man who has not been dealt with by the Spirit of God and has not been convinced and convicted, tries to get away from God, to avoid him at all costs. He does not think, he does not read the Bible, he does not pray; he does everything he can not to think about these things. But the extraordinary thing about the man who is convicted of sin by the Holy Spit is that though he knows he has sinned against God, it is God he wants---`Be merciful to me, O God.’ He wants to be with God---that is the peculiar paradox of repentance, wanting the one I have offended!” D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones <><><> 4. When a sinner repents, heaven celebrates the amazing grace of God! 5. Whose boy or girl are you today? NOW WHAT? SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: • The theme of this message is about the goodness of God, the perfect, loving and model Father. 1. When you think of your father, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it good or painful? Discuss. 2. Read (Prov.17:6). Do fathers have a powerful effect on their children? What do I think about these two quotes: “My dad broke my heart way before any boy had the chance to do so…..Some people don’t believe in heroes, but they haven’t met my dad!” 3. Read (Lk.15:11-32) together. Jerry Mander said: “We evolve into the images we carry in our minds. We become what we see.” How do you see God the Father after reading this parable? What is He like in the story that gets my attention? 4. Read (2Cor.7:9-11). It is the best description of true repentance in the Bible. What gets my attention in this passage? What does (Rom.2:4) say is the cause of true repentance? Read D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones’s quote about the paradox of true repentance. So what? 5. Whose boy or girl am I today? Do I see myself as a son or daughter of God? Do I need His healing power right now for wounds inflicted by my father (see Ps.147:3)? Have I thanked God for giving me a faithful earthly father and for being my perfect heavenly father?

(18) Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, (19) that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
(20) Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

cd17.06.04 June 4, 2017 “And He said to them, `You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.” Lk.16:15 <><><> “There is one very serious defect to my mind in Christ’s moral character, and that is that he believed in hell. I do not myself feel that any person who is really profoundly humane can believe in everlasting punishment.” Bertrand Russell, (atheist and card carrying fool) <><><> THIS MESSAGE FROM HELL IS SHOCKING: 1. BECAUSE OF WHO IS THERE! “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day.” Lk.16:19 2. BECAUSE OF WHO IS NOT THERE! “(20) But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, (21) desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.” Lk.16:20-21 3. BECAUSE OF THE PERMANENT REVERSAL DEATH BRINGS! “(22) So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man died and was buried. (23) And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom.” Lk.16:22-23 4. BECAUSE OF THE FATE OF THOSE WHO JUSTIFY THEMSELVES! “(24) Then he cried and said, `Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. (25) But Abraham said, `Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. (26) And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.” Lk.16:24-26 • (Matt.25:41) a place of everlasting fire! • (Mk.9:48) a place where the worm never dies! • (Dan.12:2) a place of everlasting contempt! • (Matt.8:12) a place of outer darkness! • (Matt.13:42) a place of wailing and gnashing of teeth! • (Rev.14:11) a place where one has no rest day or night! • (2Thes.1:9) a place of everlasting separation from the Lord! 5. BECAUSE OF THE REASON WHY PEOPLE GO THERE! “(27) Then he said, `I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, (28) for I have five brothers that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ (29) Abraham said to him, `They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ (30) And he said, `No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ (31) But he said to him, `If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’” Lk.16:27-31 SO WHAT? 1. Hell is a real place! “I am He who liveth, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and I have the keys of Hell and of death.” Rev.1:18 (KJV) 2. Many who go there will be shocked? “(22) Many will say to Me in that day, `Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ (23) And then I will declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” Matt.7:22-23 3. Excuses won’t keep them from going there! “(15) And He said to them, `You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.” Lk.16:15 4. What I do in life echoes in eternity! “(44) Then they also will answer Him saying, `Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’(45) Then He will answer them, saying, `Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me. (46) And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matt.25:44-46 5. People who know how to die know how to live! “(27) Then he said, `I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, (28) for I have five brothers that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.” Lk.16:27-28 6. Hell is avoided by hearing the word! “(30) And he said, `No father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’(31) But he said to them, `If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.” Lk.16:30-31 <><><> “If we had more hell in the pulpit we would have less hell in the pews.” Billy Graham <><><> NOW WHAT? SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: • The theme of this message is the warning of hell, what is it, why do people go there, and what I need to do to avoid it! 1. How do I respond to the quote by Bertrand Russell on the first page of the sermon outline? 2. Read (Lk.16:19-31). Parables are stories used to convey spiritual truth. They are also used to bring the listener to a decision. What decision did the listeners to this story need to make (see.Lk.16:14-15). What are some ways people tend to justify themselves and excuse their sin? 3. Do I think hell is cruel, unkind, or unfair? Do I want justice when I am wronged? Why? Do Sadam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, or suicide bombers deserve hell? Do I deserve hell? Why? 4. Look up these verses on hell and see how Scripture describes this place: • (Matt.25:41-46) • (Mk.9:48, Isa.66:24) • (Dan.12:2) • (Matt.8:12; 22:13) • (2Thes.1:9) • (Matt.13:42) • (Rev.14:11) 5.

“(1) To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, `These things
says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks
in the midst of the seven golden lampstands:’ (2) `I know your
works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those
who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are
apostles and are not, and have found them liars; (3) and you
have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My
name’s sake and have not become weary. (4) Nevertheless I
have this against you, that you have left your first love. (5)
Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do
the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove
your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. (6) But this
you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I
also hate. (7) He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat
from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of
God.” Rev.2:1-7 (NKJV)

“Then Jesus said to the centurion, `Go your way; and as you have believed,
so let it be done for you.’ And his servant was healed that same hour.”
Matt.8:13

GREAT FAITH SETS THE SAIL:

WHAT DOES THE TEXT SAY?

1. In the face of GREAT NEED!

“….Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”
Matt.8:6

2. By COMING TO CHRIST in spite of things that
might hinder approaching Him!

“(5) Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him,
pleading with Him, (6) saying, `Lord, my servant is lying at home
paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.’ (7) And Jesus said to him, `I will come and
heal him.’ Matt.8:5- 7

3. By acknowledging JESUS AS LORD!

“…saying, `Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully
tormented.” Matt.8:6

4. With HUMILITY!

“The centurion answered and said, `Lord I am not worthy that You should
come under my roof….” Matt.8:8a

5. Knowing that distance does not hinder Christ’s power!

“…But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.” Matt.8:8b

6. By recognizing DELEGATED AUTHORITY!

“(9)…For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I
say to this one, `Go, and he goes;’ and to another, `Come,’ and he comes;
and to my servant, `Do this,’ and he does it.” Matt.8:9

7. And it causes Christ to marvel!

“(10) When Jesus heard it He marveled and said to those who followed,
`Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in
Israel! (11) And I say to you, that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. (12) But
the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be
weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matt.8:10-12

8. And the great Savior responds to it!

“Then Jesus said to the centurion, `Go your way; and as you have believed,
so let it be done for you.’ And his servant was healed that same hour.”
Matt.8:13

SO WHAT?

1. WHAT is faith?

A. A gift of God’s grace: “For by grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, (9)
not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Eph.2:8-9

B. Gracious realization and confidence: “Now faith is the
substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Heb.11:1
• Knowledge (intellect stirred by truth)
• Belief (emotions desire the truth and its promise)
• Trust (will surrenders to the object of truth)

<>“Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith
is to see what we believe.”
Augustine<>

C. Gracious desire to come to God and receive: “But
without faith it is impossible to please Him, for who comes to God
must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who
diligently seek Him.” Heb.11:6

2. WHY is this grace so important?

A. Without it I can’t please God: “(6)But without faith it is
impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe
that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek
Him.” Heb.11:6

• It is the means (channel), Christ is the end!
• It glorifies (emphasizes) the grace of God!
• It touches the affections with love and causes action!

<>“Faith occupies the position of a channel or conduit pipe. Grace is
the fountain and the stream: faith is the aqueduct along which the
flood of mercy flows down to refresh the thirsty sons of men…Still,
again I remind you that faith is the channel not the fountain head,
and we must not look so much to it as to exalt it above the divine
source of all blessing which lies in the grace of God. Never make a
Christ out of your faith, nor think of it as if it were the independent
source of your salvation. Our life if found in `looking unto Jesus’
not in looking to our own faith.”
Charles Spurgeon<>

3. HOW can I become a person of great faith?

A. Hear the truth of the gospel frequently and sincerely:
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Rom.10:17
B. Lay aside, run, look: “(1) …let us lay aside every weight, and
the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance
the race that is set before us, (2) looking unto Jesus, the author and
finisher of our faith.” Heb.12:1b-2

C. Pray: “And the apostles said to our Lord, `Increase our faith.’”
Lk.17:5
D. Consider the testimony of others!

E. Obey God: “But they have not all obeyed the gospel.”Rom.10:16

NOW WHAT?
SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

• The theme of this message is a story of great faith and how to
obtain it!

1. What is the best faith story I have ever heard? What
is my best faith story? Share with the group.
2. Read (Matt.8:5-13). What gets my attention most in
this faith story? Why?
3. Why was this Gentile Roman soldier an unlikely
example of great faith? How about the woman of
Canaan from last week’s message (Matt.15:22)? Did they have as much scriptural light as I do living in
the Bible belt? Why would that matter?
4. Read (Heb.11:5-40). What did these men and women
achieve by faith? Did they all escape suffering? What
would God do through me if I were to become a
person of great faith?
5. Of the 5 ways to become a person of great faith
under #3 of the SO WHAT section of the outline,
which one gets my attention? Why? Close in prayer
and ask God to help me become a person of great
faith!

“Then Jesus answered and said to her, `O woman, great is your faith! Let it
be to you as you desire.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour.”
Matt.15:28

GREAT FAITH IS A DESIRE:

A. That recognizes the need for MERCY!

“And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to
Him, saying, `Have mercy on me……” Matt.15:22a

B. For the proper OBJECT!

“…Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon possessed.”
Matt.15:22b

• GOD’S WILL
• GOD’S PURPOSE
• GOD’S GLORY

<>“A man may say, `I have faith.’ But another question arises: What
have you faith in? `Well, I have faith in what I have felt.’ Then get rid
of it, for what you have felt is not an object of faith nor to be trusted in
at all. `I have faith,’ says another, `in the doctrines which I have been
taught.’ I am glad you believe them, but remember, doctrines are not
the Savior. A creed cannot save. What is the object of faith, then? It is
a person, a living, divine, appointed person. And who is that person?
He is none other than Jesus….Faith hangs on to Christ, it holds to a
silent Christ, it holds to a refusing Christ, it holds to a rebuking Christ,
and will not let Him go. Faith is the great holdfast that hooks a soul on
to the Savior.”
Charles Spurgeon<>

C. Comes forth in prayer and is not deterred by
DELAYS OR DISCOURAGEMENT!

“But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him,
saying, `Send her away, for she cries out after us.’” Matt.15:23

D. Not quenched by TESTS!

“(24) But He answered and said, `I was not sent except to the lost sheep of
the house of Israel.’ (25) Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, `Lord, help me!’” Matt.15:24-25

<>“It is faith’s work to claim and challenge loving kindness out of all the
roughest strokes of God.”
Samuel Rutherford<>

E. That knows how to ARGUE WITH GOD!

“(26) But He answered and said, `It is not good to take the children’s bread
and throw it to the little dogs.’ (27) And she said, `Yes, Lord, yet even little
dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” Matt.15:26-27

F. That prays through and gets an ANSWER!

“Then Jesus answered and said to her, `O woman, great is your faith! Let it
be to you as you desire.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour.”
Matt.15:28

SO WHAT?

1. Have I experienced the gift of faith (desire)?

“(8) For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of
yourselves, it is the gift of God, (9) not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
Eph.2:8-9

2. Is the object of my faith (desire) Jesus Christ
and His glory, or is it something else?

“(14) Now this is the confidence that we have in Him that if we ask
anything according to His will, He hears us. (15) And if we know that He
hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have
asked of Him.” 1Jn.5:14-15
3. Have I lost heart because of delays or
discouragements to my prayers?

“(1) Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and
not lose heart, (2) saying: `There was in a certain city a judge who did not
fear God nor regard man. (3) Now there was a widow in that city; and she
came to him, saying, `Get justice for me from my adversary.’ (4) And he
would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, `Though I do not
fear God nor regard man, (5) yet because this widow troubles me I will
avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ (6) Then the Lord
said, `Hear what the unjust judge said, (7) And shall God not avenge His
own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with
them? (8) I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when
the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” Lk.18:1-8

“I would have lost heart, unless I have believed that I would see the
goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Ps.27:13

4. Will I permit God to stretch and strengthen
my faith (desires)?

“(19) And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already
dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s
womb. (20) He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but
was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.” Rom.4:19-20

5. Jesus Christ delights to respond to faith, so
what do I desire of Him today?

“Then Jesus answered and said to her, `O woman, great is your faith! Let it
be to you as you desire.’ And her daughter was healed from that very hour.”
Matt.15:28

NOW WHAT?

Small Group Discussion Questions:

• The theme of this message on Mother’s Day is great faith and
its characteristics.

1. What is the greatest answer to prayer I have ever
received? Did God test my faith in anyway before He
answered? Share it with the group.
2. Read (Matt.15:21-28). This mother received a great
answer to prayer. What did Jesus commend her for in
(v.28)?
3. What is the biblical definition of faith (see Heb.11:1)?
What is the origin of faith (see Eph.2:8-9)? What (Who)
is the object of faith (see Matt.15:22)? Why is faith so
important in the Christian life (see Heb.11:6)? What
means does God use to cultivate faith (see Rom.10:17).
In summary, faith is a gift of the grace of God, is stirred
by hearing the word of God, whose object is the Son of
God, is the divine ability to see and hope for what God
intends to do in a matter and a divine conviction that
God will do what He says, and is the only way to please
God!
4. Read Spurgeon’s quote on page 1 of the sermon outline.
Why does God delight in faith so much? What is the
proper object of faith? Is God glorified when faith is exercised and He answers?
5. Read Matt.15:28 again. Note Jesus telling this woman
“great is your faith…let it be as you desire!” Why would
He call her faith “a desire”? Did he honor her desire?
What desires has he put in my heart right now? What
does (1Jn.5:14-15) promise? Close in prayer!
