I AM GOD’S APPLIANCE!

Therman E. Evans - Morning Star Sermon In ActionScripture: Luke 5:17-26
Supporting Scriptures: John 1:1, 6:63, Matthew 18:20, Psalm 22:3, Hebrew 11:1 & 6
Scriptural Focus: FAITH

Sermon Highlights:

  • The power of God is available to ALL
  • The power is here to heal EVERYTHING!
  • THE POWER OF GOD IS PRESENT RIGHT NOW!
  • How do I know this? The power of God is in His Word & name. Praising God accesses the power of God, opens prison doors, scatters enemy armies, brings down barriers to my biggest blessings, heals diseases
  • Praise my way through!
  • Am I here to look, watch, observe, inspect others or am I here to experience the power of God & work on my paralysis? Am I here to inspect Jesus or to be intimate with him?
  • The issue is not “am I paralyzed?” The issue is WHERE am I paralyzed?
  • The paralyzed man in Luke 5:17-26 reflects the entire house
  • THE POWER OF GOD IS HERE, BUT IT MUST BE ACTIVATED BY FAITH!
  • Faith connects me to God, thereby activating the power of God in me
  • I am God’s appliance! Unless I am connected to Him I have no use
  • The house has power! I brought the power with me!
  • Don’t be cold, be fired up!
  • THE POWER OF GOD IS ACCELERATED BY MY PERSISTENCE!
  • Persistence = the refusal to give up, especially when faced with obstacles.
  • Persistence = substance & evidence; The way God recognizes faith; How I connect with God
  • Jesus perceives my thoughts & sees my faith
  • No one strolls up on a relationship with God! It’s not easy! it’s a fight, a battle, spiritual warfare, combat, collision
  • I gotta persist!

Sermon In Action - Suggested Activities:

  • DAILY AFFIRMATIONS:Say at least 10x per day, throughout the day as passionately as possible and as early as possible in the day… (Add your favorites)
  • THE POWER OF GOD IS HERE!
  • THE POWER OF GOD IS AVAILABLE TO ME!
  • I WILL PRAISE MY WAY THROUGH!
  • I AM GOD’S APPLIANCE!
  • I GOTTA PERSIST!
  • GOD POWER IS ACTIVATED BY MY FAITH!

Write the affirmation(s) that resonate(s) the most ( or, print on computer – large font) and place it in several prominent places: your living space, your work space (if you are able), your car, bathroom mirror, near your bed… wherever it will be visible and can serve as a constant reminder of how you should be thinking, feeling, being and, of what you should be doing.

  • Reflect and write: Where am I stuck? Is there a stale or stagnant area of my life that needs to be turned on? (there always is)
  • Read and apply scripture: This week, re-read the story of the paralytic in Luke 5:17-26. Put yourself in the role of the paralyzed man. Have you ever been this desperate? Do you have any friends who would do for you what this man’s friends did?
  • Testify: What is some of the evidence in your life that your relationship with God is hard won?

 

5)    Creative Application: If you were an appliance, what appliance would you be and why? How has God used you (like that appliance) to encourage His people, build His kingdom, spread His word and express His love on the earth? How can you let God use you this week –specifically?

May God bless you
