Bringing Honor Back!

Last weekend we honored & prayed for local 1st responders, military & those affected by the tragic terrorist attacks 10 years ago on September 11th. I deviated from our current series & shared a message that I know will bless, challenge & encourage you!

BRINGING BACK HONOR!

HONOR: time (tim-may’); to value, respect, or highly esteem; to treat as precious, weighty or valuable. On the flip side, a lack of honor is: atimos (at'-ee-mos); to dishonor; to treat as common or ordinary.

Read Genesis 9:18-28-- The Story of Noah & His 3 Sons

1. You cannot honor what you don't recognize. (vs. 22)
2. Honor qualifies you to enter any future that God has for you! (vs. 23)
3. Honor will elevate your life, dishonor will deteriorate your life. (vs. 24-27)
4. Bring Honor back by…

*Honoring up (Exodus 20:3, Isaiah 29:13, Psalms 22:23, Proverbs 3:9, 1 Corinthians 6:20)
*Honoring down (Exodus 20:12, Ephesians 6:2-3, 1 Peter 3:7, Leviticus 19:32,1 Timothy 5:3-4)
*Honoring all around (1 Peter 2:17, Romans 13:7, 1 Timothy 5:17, Romans 12:10)

5. Remember this about Honor, Adam lost it, Jesus brought it back!
"When Adam sinned, sin entered the world... the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through... Jesus Christ. 16 And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift (JESUS) leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. 11So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God." Romans 5:12-16,11 (NLT)
“Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered." Romans 4:7 (NIV) *see also 1 Corinthians 15:22, 1 Peter 2:16, 1 Peter 4:8

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . 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

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
