Foundations 4

We receive.

Big idea:

We receive through faith.

Message notes:

Jesus gave us the opportunity for abundant, eternal life.

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

He wants everyone to accept.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

He’s so excited for your perfect gift moment!

Luke 15:10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.

We need to check what kind of receiver we are

When you are ready: Confess & Believe / Believe & Confess

Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

Group Invitation:

“Does anyone want to put their faith in Jesus tonight?”

Group Questions:

Q1: What was your worst gift giving experience? The best?

Q2: How would you define an abundant life? How does Jesus? If your definitions are different, why do you think that is? Who is more likely to be right?

Q3: What kind of soil do you see yourself as? 

Q4: What are you holding on to that’s better than the life you were made for?
