The Danger of Drifting Away

Hebrews 2:1; Proverbs 23:7; Proverbs 24: 30-34 Thorns and thistles can crowd out the things of God. We can look and hear about people who have images they have made. Look at the gods of pleasure we have. We have gods that keep us from the true God. Procrastination can little by little become drifting. Philippians 3:7

God Wants a Sincere “Yes!”

James 4: 7 Submit to God Hebrews 4: 15 Jesus has experienced everything we do Acts 4: 13 Jesus turned paradigms upside down Hebrews 3: 15 Don’t harden your heart I Peter 5: 6 & 7 Humble Yourselves Proverbs 2: 1-11; 3: 11 God busts you because He loves you

Patience

We’re asked to walk in the strength of the Holy Spirit. Am I easily set off when things go wrong or people irritate me, or am I able to keep a godly perspective in the face of life’s irritations?

Stand: Character vs Cynicism

Ephesians 6: 10-14; Hebrews 11: 1; i Thessalonians 5: 16-19; Proverbs 13:20 When a tough time becomes a tough life, expectation becomes a manifestation of your FAITH. Avoid Cynicism: Look for Jesus in midst of troubles; Remember God’s past miracles and works in your life; cultivate thankfulness not based on feelings; pray in the Spirit to edify yourself; take a mental vacation; “It came to pass” happens; remember that everything works out for GOOD.

Under the New Covenant

NT Covenant is the promise of salvation made by God to humans individually, based on divine grace rather than the Mosaic Laws. Prayer is the strategy; relational, face-to-face, what we bring to life together and what it brings to us. Hebrews 10: 19 & 20; Hebrews 3: 13; Hebrews 10: 24 & 25 Proverbs 27: 17
