Me, Life, and God Being Well Pleased
Posted by Barry Raley
TODAY'S TEXT: MATTHEW 3:13-17
 
TODAY'S TRUTH:  Because in God's family EVERYBODY is SOMEBODY, I am somebody that is essential TO God's PLAN and PURPOSE!
 
  • All of us deep down want to hear someone say WELL DONE!
 
  • VS. 14 And John tried to prevent Him = HINDER
 
  • Do I live always trying to avoid my own MISTAKES instead of learning how to live in God's PLEASURE?
 
Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him! 2COR. 5:9 (NKJV)
 
  • COOPERATE with God in the unexpected! And let "for Jesus sake" be enough reason for our cooperation!
 
JOHN LEARNED THE PLEASURE OF GOD is always tied to the PURPOSE of a Father who has HIGH EXPECTATIONS
 
 
JOHN LEARNED THE PLEASURE OF GOD is always tied to the PRACTICE of a HIGH EXPECTATION faith! 
 
 
  • Get fully immersed in seeking righteousness instead of having to always be RIGHT

    TODAY'S TEXT: MATTHEW 3:1-12
     
    The grass is always greener on the OTHER SIDE
     
    • There is a spiritual side ... another spiritual place ... that is BETTER than any other place we could be!
     
    • A PLACE called SECOND
     
    • To experience God's best for your life get in line behind JESUS
     
    • Overcome our flesh that has a strong DESIRE to be first
    • Overcome the devil who says I DESERVE to be first
     
    • In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness ... VS. 1
     
    • The son of a priest would normally BECOME a Priest
     
    JOHN understood his IDENTITY and fully accepted who he WAS NOT
     
    • Let who you are NOT set you free from the PERFECTION TRAP
    • Let who you are NOT deliver you from CONDEMNATION TRICK
     
     
    • For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah saying, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight. vs. 3
     
    JOHN understood his DESTINY and fully embraced who he WAS
     
     
    • But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism ... bear fruits worthy of repentance ... vs. 7-12
     
    Put JESUS in FIRST place, put your self in second place ... and your life's AGENDA will get in the right place
