Sunday Sermon Notes (2-23-14)
Life Point Church
What a great sermon! I love how God just spoke volumes through this message. Lord help me live my life as a CHILD of the KING! I have been living as an EXILE, it's time for change!
Fretting about how our culture isn’t following God.
Fearing that our lives will get less comfortable as a result.
Being dismayed or disillusioned at events that reveal that this world is lost and dead in sin without Christ.
Insulating ourselves in close-knit, fearful subcultures, driven by anxiety that the world will infect us.
Being defined by what we are against, rather than what we are for.
Reviling and condemning culture, reacting to the threat we feel from it.
Existing in fragmented community because we are driven by fear.
Getting lost in the feeling of being dispossessed, cast out, not belonging.
Not simply being aware that we are strangers in our world, but living in a prison of fear, hopelessness, and anxiety because we are exiles in our world.
Child of the King identity:
Walking day by day in the living hope that is ours through Jesus Christ.
Living in obedience to Jesus.
Serving Christ, not our own comforts.
Laying down our lives for one another, at peace and motivated by the Spirit of God.
Engaged in our world, seeking the welfare of the city that God places us in.
Aware of culture, but not in fear of culture.
Not blindly consuming culture, but intentionally engaging culture with redemption in view.
Blessing when we are cursed.
Striving daily, as we trust in God through suffering.
Living in united community as we engage Jesus’ mission together.
Focused on being owned by God, belonging to him, in his redeemed community (the church).
Lived out in hope, trust in God, obedience to Jesus, and redemptive engagement in our world.
Do you see the difference? It is a matter of attitude and perspective.
Exiles in the world, live as children of the King.
