Fusion: “Creation, Fall, Redemption” Week 8

 

Key Passages:

  • Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 15

Main Point:

  • God chooses to use sinners.

Key Takeaways:

  • God chose to use Abram, a sinner.  He did not choose to use him because of anything Abram did.
  • Abram was “counted as righteous” (made right with God) because of his faith or belief.
  • We see Abram’s belief in God revealed through some of his actions.
  • We are the same as Abram, a sinner.  God does not choose to use us because of anything we do.

Application:

  • What does “counted as righteous” mean?  Was Abram counted as righteous because of anything he did?
  • Do you believe that God is your creator?
  • What actions in your life show that your faith is real?
  • What actions in your life show proud unbelief?  How would this change if you fully believed in who God is and what He has done for you?

 

Dioko: Rock Solid Faith

Key Passage:

  • 1 John 4:1-6

Key Takeaways:

  • Not everyone who claims to speak for God actually does.
  • We need to test whether or not what others say actually comes from God.
  • If someone does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus then they are not
  • from God.
  • Those who are of God, accept God’s message, while those who are of the
  • world reject God’s message and accept the world’s message.

Application:

  • What are the voices that you are letting speak into your life?
  • Are you testing the voices that you let speak into your life?
  • What do those voices say about Jesus?
  • Are you more inclined to listen to the voices of this world or the voices
  • of God?

 

24Seven: Philippians

Key Passage:

  • Philippians 3:12-14

Key Takeaways:

  • Paul is continuing to talk about how incredible it is to know Christ and how knowing Christ should be our goal.
  • Christ took hold of us so that we could know Him and glorify Him forever.
  • If that is the goal of our life, we should forget any past obedience that we take pride in and focus on what lies ahead (being a citizen of heaven while still living on earth).
  • Pressing on is not about you becoming a better person but about you knowing Christ more fully.
  • Pressing on is only done in humility and faith – recognizing our need for Christ and the glorious riches of knowing Him, and then depending and trusting in Him daily, through all of life’s circumstances.
  • Misconception – Once you are saved, you have no purpose until you get to heaven.
  • Truth – Our purpose, both now and in eternity, is to know God and glorify Him.  God is transforming you now into his likeness, and when we meet him face to face, we will be perfected and know Him completely.
  • In the same way that we are saved by faith, we live by faith and grow closer with the Lord daily.

Application

  • What is the goal of your life?  Is it knowing God?
  • Have you experienced some spiritual “success” or obedience and allowed yourself to disconnect with God because you “had it all figured out”?  We must continually repent and live by faith.
  • Do you live by faith daily and see your circumstances (even ordinary circumstances) as an opportunity to depend on Christ and know Him more?
  • What needs to change in order for you to live by faith?
