ON THE BOARD

 

THE HARDEST AND GREATEST THNG TO DO IS TO CONSTANTLY HUMBLE YOURSELF

 

FORMULA FOR FLESHLY PERFORMING AND “OTHER GOSPELS” IS…

JESUS WILL HELP YOU GET OUT OF A DITCH

 

THE GOSPEL FOR FREEDOM IS…

JESUS IS IN THE DITCH WITH YOU TO GET YOU OUT OF THE DITCH

 

HEARING THE LORD SAY, “NO, DO IT MY WAY,” YOU MUST OBEY AND DO IT TO GROW UP

 

REFUSING TO STEP “NAKED” THROUGH THE SMALL DOOR?

SERVING ONLY MAN WITH YOUR BELIEFS AND GIFTINGS EMASCULATES PURE WORSHIP

 

PURE WORSHIP OF THE KING MEANS: WILLINGLY LAYING DOWN YOUR LIFE TO HIM

 

MARK 8:35  AMP   FOR WHOEVER WANTS TO SAVE HIS (HIGHER, SPIRITUAL, ETERNAL LIFE) WILL LOSE IT (THE LOWER, NATURAL TEMPORAL LIFE WHICH IS LIVED ONLY ON EARTH); AND WHOEVER GIVES UP HIS LIFE (WHICH IS LIVED ONLY ON EARTH) FOR MY SAKE AND GOSPEL’S WILL SAVE IT (HIS HIGHER, SPIRITUAL LIFE IN THE ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD).

 

PURE WORSHIP AND FREEDOM IS WHEN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PEACE KISS, PSALM 85:10

RIGHTEOUSNESS IS HIM AND PEACE IS YOU – THE TWO OF YOU ARE UNITED AS ONE

 

DOUBT AND WORRY IS PERVERTED IMAGINATION – A DOUBLE MINDED MAN

YOU ARE PUTTING YOURSELF ABOVE GOD – YOU ARE NOT CASTING EVERYTHING ON HIM

 

HAVING A DOUBLE-MIND AND BEING CARNALLY MINDED IS SIN

ARE YOU LIVING OUT OF THE PROVERBIAL BROWN PAPER BAG?

ON THE BOARD

 

EYE OF THE NEEDLE ORAL REPORT – ONLY GO BY THE SIX POINT FORMAT

FOCUS ON THE LAST THREE POINTS:

                                        * MY DESIRES

                                        * GOOD WORKS GIVEN TO ME BY HIM

                                        * FRUSTRATION OF GETTING WHAT I WANTED

                                        * MY RELINQUISHMENT

                                        * MY EPIPHANY

                                        * THE DOOR OF WORSHIP, YOUR COMPLETE UNION

 

GIVING YOUR TESTIMONY DEVELOPS YOU AS AN OVERCOMER

 

WHOEVER HUMBLES HIMSELF AS THIS LITTLE CHILD IS THE GREATEST IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN – MATTHEW 18:4

 

JESUS BEFORE HIS FATHER ALWAYS HAD CHILDLIKE FAITH AND CHILDLIKE OBEDIENCE

 

FACE REALITY ABOUT PRIDE IN YOUR LIFE:  

IS THERE A PLACE IN YOUR LIFE WHERE YOU ARE WILLFULLY, ON PURPOSE, NOT WILLING TO EMBRACE THE INTIMATE, LOVING PRESENCE OF THE LORD AND POWER OF HIS WORD TO TRANSFORM YOU?

IS IT BECAUSE OF A PERSON(S), TAINTED BELIEFS, AN EXPERIENCE, YOUR PAST OR PRESENT?

 

NOT SLOW TO ANGER? NOT CONTROLLED BY LOVE? HAVE TO BE RIGHT? NO FORGIVENESS? WHY? YOUR PRIDE RULES

  • YOU DO NOT THINK BIBLICALLY, BUT YOU THINK YOU DO.
  • YOU LIVE BY A DOUBLE STANDARD…YOUR OWN STANDARD AND GOD’S STANDARD ONLY WHEN CONVENIENT.
  • YOU THINK TOO HIGHLY OF YOURSELF.
  • YOU ARE MOVED BY YOUR SELFISH PARTIALITY, CIRCUMSTANCES RULE LIFE.
  • YOU THINK HAVING A “SHORT FUSE” OVER OTHER’S BELIEFS IS RIGHTEOUS.
  • YOU REFUSE TO THINK BEFORE SPEAKING, FELLOWSHIP GROWS TO BE LESS, DISTANT AND COLD.
  • YOU DO NOT LIVE VICTORIOUISLY OUT OF JESUS’ VICTORY. YOU ARE MISERABLE AND CARNAL.

 

SNAP OUT OF IT! QUICK CRUCIFIXION PRODUCES HUMILITY!

 

WHY DOES THE FATHER LIKE IT WHEN YOU ENDURE UNFAIR TREATMENT?

BECAUSE HE TRUSTS YOUR EMPOWERMENT TO OBEY AND BE VICTORIOUS, I PETER 2:20-21

 

WHEN YOU ARE BEING TESTED, THE FATHER IS THERE TO PROMOTE YOU

 

WHEN YOU HAVE GIVEN ALL TO GOD, YOU WILL FIND YOU CAN HOLD ALL ELSE LOOSLY

 

ARE YOU GROWING AS A SERVANT? CAN YOU CALL YOURSELF A SERVANT YET?

 

SERVANTHOOD IS GREATNESS

 

SERVE IN GREATNESS BY SERVING THE LEAST

ON THE BOARD

 

SEEN ON A FIRE ENGINE: WHATEVER IT TAKES TO SERVE

 

HUMILITY SAYS: YOU BE GOD, I’LL BE THE CHILD

 

PAUL HARVEY ON PRIDEFUL SELF FOCUS:

“I HOPE YOU LEARN HUMILITY BY BEING HUMILIATED AND THAT YOU LEARN HONEST BY BEING CHEATED”

 

CORRUPTION IN YOU MAKES YOU LOOK DOWN ON PEOPLE, INSTEAD OF REACHING OUT

 

IF YOU LOVE OTHERS, ESTEEMING THEM MORE THAN YOURSELF

YOU WILL NOT LIE, GOSSIP, HATE, ENVY OR BE OFFENDED

 

IF YOU DO NOT LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD ABOVE ALL THINGS IN YOUR LIFE

YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO LOVE PEOPLE AND PUT THEM ABOVE YOU

 

LIVING OUT THE GOSPEL IS NOT ABOUT LEGALISTICALLY PERFORMING DUTIES

IT IS ABOUT HAVING A PERSONAL, FLOWING LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD

 

BEND YOUR KNEE AND RECEIVE ALL OF HIS PERFECT LOVE

STAND UP AND POUR OUT ALL OF YOUR LOVE BACK TO HIM

 

ALMOST ALL THE PEOPLE, ALMOST ALL THE TIME, ARE WILLING TO OFFEND YOU 

BELIEVERS IN THE FLESH WILL ALWAYS OFFEND AND BE OFFENDED

 

IT SHOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR A LED BY THE SPIRIT BELIEVER TO BE OFFENDED

SIN LEADS TO HUMILATION, BUT MAY NOT LEAD TO HUMILITY

 

ONE MISTAKE = OK

TWO MISTAKES = STUPID

THREE MISTAKES = A CHARACTER ISSUE

 

WHEN THE PAIN OF STAYING THE SAME IS GREATER THAN STAYING THE SAME …

YOU ARE READY FOR CHANGE

ON THE BOARD

 

HUMILITY…THE FORCE OF LOVE WITHOUT HYPOCRISY

 

GALATIANS 3:3 – SNAP OUT OF IT

WILL YOU BEGIN IN THE SPIRIT AND END UP IN THE FLESH?

 

 “ALL OF YOU ARE EQUAL AS BROTHERS AND SISTERS,” MATTHEW 23:8b

EVERYONE HAS THE SAME WORTH…PERIOD!

 

YOU ARE EQUAL IN WORTH WITH ALL PEOPLE

ALL PEOPLE ARE EQUAL IN WORTH WITH YOU

 

SAY TO GOD:  YOU ARE ABOVE, I AM BELOW

SAY TO EVERYONE:  YOU ARE ABOVE, I AM BELOW

 

MEEK, NOT WEAK           INNER MEEKNESS = OUTER POWER

 

THE PROUD MAN IS ONE WHO HAS NOT YET SEEN GOD; BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT (THE HUMBLE) FOR THEY HAVE SEEN THEMSELVES IN GOD

 

NO ONE TOO LOW FOR YOU SERVE – NO ONE TOO LOST FOR YOU TO LOVE

 

MORE LIGHT REVEALS MORE WEAKNESS, PRIDE AND SIN

EVERYTHING EXPOSED PERMANENTLY TO THE LIGHT BECOMES LIGHT
