Life's Healing Choices, Part 3- Commitment

I consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control.

“Come to me, all of you who are weary and over-burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

Key Verse- “Happy are those who are humble.” Matthew 5:5 (TEV)
“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5 (NIV)

Meek is:
“Christ, who suffered for you, is your example. Follow in His steps. He never sinned, and He never deceived anyone. He did not retaliate when He was insulted. When He suffered, He did not threaten to get even. He left His case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly.” 1 Peter 2:21-21

Meekness has always been God's way for humanity
(see Job 5:11; Num. 12:3; Ps. 25:9; Eph. 4:1-2; Col. 3:12; Titus 3:1-2)

Meekness means I acknowledge:

> Confidence in WHO and WHOSE I am

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God. 1 John 5:1
God, your God, is the God of all gods, he's the Master of all masters, a God immense and powerful and awesome. Deuteronomy 10:17 (MSG)

The Reasons That We Don’t Commit

PRIDE- “A self-sufficient fool falls flat on His face.” Proverbs 10:8; Proverbs 18:12
GUILT-“Problems far too big for me to solve are piled higher than my head. Meanwhile my sins, too many to count, have caught up with me, and I’m ashamed to look up." Psalm 40:12 (LB); 1 John 1:9; Psalm 32:4
FEAR-What are you afraid will happen if you commit your life to Christ? What are you afraid God will do if you give him care and control of your life?
WORRY-“God who began the good work within you will keep right on helping you to grow in His grace until His task within you is finally finished.” Philippians 1:6
DOUBT“Anything is possible if a person believes.” The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:23-24
“If you have faith as small as a mustard see... nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

Commit To Accepting Christ’s Care & Control In Your Life By...

Accepting God’s SON as your SAVIOR. “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” Acts 16:31
Accepting God’s WORD as your STANDARD.“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the faith and correcting error, for resetting the direction of a man’s life and training him in good living.” 2 Timothy 3:16
Accepting God’s WILL as your STRATEGY.God made you for a purpose that He wants you to fulfill.
Accepting God’s POWER as your STRENGTH.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
“I [am] standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking. If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with Him.” Revelations 3:20

Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick

The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is, "GREATER," based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12, "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."   2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called, "Decade Of Destiny."  Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a campus in Centr…
