IT’S TRUE AND IT WORKS

Series:  HOW THEN SHALL WE LIVE?

Sunday:  “It’s True and It Works”  (Psalm 40)

Introduction:

         “Sir, we would see Jesus.”

As God’s followers, we are His fingerprints.  We are called to leave His definite and distinct imprint on our world.

How then shall we live?  We should live in such a way that people we encounter can both see and experience the reality of Jesus in us.

I.  We demonstrate the reality of Jesus through our TESTIMONIES.  (Vs. 1-4)

   A.  We share our times of WAITING.

   B.  We share our times of RESCUE.

   C.  We share the lessons that we have LEARNED.

II.  We demonstrate the reality of Jesus through our MISSION.  (Vs. 5-10)

    A.  We lead people to true ATONEMENT for sin.

    B.  We ANNOUNCE salvation.

III. We demonstrate the reality of Jesus through our PRAYERS.   (Vs. 11-13)

    A.  We ask God for His MERCY.

    B.  We ask God for DELIVERANCE.
