Celebrate Jesus

MESSAGES: these days we get bombarded messages from everywhere, messages from Facebook, from text, from messenger, from email, voicemail, from snapchat, from twitter….some of these messages can be annoying, time wasters, spam (stuff you don’t want), some leave you negative, and others inspiring and encouraging…
Today, I trust that this messages is one that will leave you INSPIRED toward a great big loving God!!

As we look at the message of the Birth of Jesus, we cannot just remain looking at Jesus as a baby, we must look at His whole life, how He lived…..

4 Reasons to celebrate Jesus today

  1. He gives you Hope
    1. No matter what you face, He through His Holy Spirit promises to never leave us
      1. I have first hand experience where things were hopeless in the natural, but with reading scripture and prayer, church support, slowly but surely everything turned a round..
      2. I have seen many people with hopelessness after standing together in faith, have been healed, been delivered of spirits, had marriages restored, been set-free of drug addictions,
  • JESUS is a giver of HOPE…if you’ll just trust your life into His hands…He will give you HOPE

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

  1. He gives you favour
    1. When we operate out of relation with God and believe upon Him with issues of life, He gives us favour to succeed!!
    2. In different times, favour has been, anything from…getting employment over others, to getting discounts on a meal, people offering to help you….given a dealership with Optus when others would pay thousands…..when we had shops…those shops came 1st Australia wide in sales many times..
    3. He gives you favour to succeed in your walk….
      “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

  2. He gives you Joy
    1. Joy is not happiness….Happiness is a feeling…whereas Joy is deeper than happiness…
    2. You can be sad at a funeral losing a loved one, but still have joy knowing you’ll see them again
    3. Jesus gives you a sense of JOY in life, knowing that whatever we go through, things will work out fine!
      These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full”        (John 15:11)
  3. He wants relationship with you
    1. At the cross Jesus paid all our debts/our sins…with His own life..for this reason..to have relationship with you and I
    2. Not one person was exempt, no one was too bad for Jesus to forgive, you may think you’re to bad, you’ve failed too much…NO, everyone has failed…all of us have fallen short and made mistakes..
    3. This is like having an unpayable debt (in the millions) and Jesus writes a cheque to pay it off in full!
    4. So that we can believe upon Him as our savour and Lord, and join relationship with Him as a son

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

As I close off this message today, I would like to led anyone who might like to experience Jesus first hand in their life… It is as simple as a 1min prayer from the heart…I would love to led you in this prayer!!!

You can be assured of your salvation in God when you pass from this world, but also have the empowerment to live life the way you were intended too….I don’t think life can be lived successfully any other way!!!!

Romans 10:9-10 says that “if you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved.

For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and you are saved.”

 

 

As we close this part of our service, why don’t you come and one of us will led you in the best decision you will ever make!!
