Freedom Workshop--Week TWO


"I am pleading with the Eternal for this ONE THING, my soul's desire: to live with Him all of my days--In the shadow of His temple, to BEHOLD HIS BEAUTY and to ponder His ways in the company of His people."

--Psalm 27:4



What an awesome night!  I loved watching the Lord weave His word in our hearts and our stories all night long.  I looked around the room and saw everyone's heart intimately connected to the Word and to each other.  It was a beautiful sight to behold.  Oh how He loves us.  


FREEDOM TRUTHS
  • YOU cannot change your behavior.  It won't last!  God has to transform how we think.  As we think then becomes how we act!   
  • Don't look at the tempter; look at the TESTER
  • You are not a victim!  You are VICTORIOUS because of what Christ did on that cross.
  • We do not work for the victory, we work FROM the victory



PASTOR KEVIN'S SERMON NOTES
  • Fly by the panel (BIBLE)
  • You fly by what you know, not by how you FEEL
  • Poise—Pause and move forward without shifting


READING RELATIONALLY

I LOVED my jaunt through Galatians 5 today!  What JOY there is to stop, pause, (aka: Poise) and read back and forth with the Lord relationally.  Do not just read your bible academically.  Fall in love with the author as you interact with HIM!  Here is how He spoke to me in verse 22:

"The Holy Spirit Produces this kind of fruit in our lives:  LOVEJOYPEACEPATIENCEKINDNESSGOODNESSFAITHFULNESSGENTLENESS, & SELF-CONTROL." -- Galatians 5:22

How do I bear these beautiful fruits of the Spirit?  In order for my tree (my life) to bear fruit it must be pruned and fertilized. (Fertilizer is death and decay of my old man/sin nature)  Those things that keep me from the fullness of HIM.  I'm left pondering this question today:  What does the Lord want to peel away in my life so that NEW LIFE can be born?
