“The Threshold to Greatness!”

Threshold: A point or place of beginning or entering.

Greatness: Big; mighty; beyond average; markedly superior.

2018: “YEAR OF GREATNESS”!

“…whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well…” (John 5:4 NASB)

“When You Hit Rock Bottom”

ROCK BOTTOM IS THE FLOOR OF A NEW BEGINNING.

"The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;"  (Psalm 18:2 NASB)

The Hope in Rock Bottom

1.  ROCK BOTTOM DETACHES US FROM FALSE HOPES.

  • ROCK BOTTOM’S FIRST VICTIM IS VANITY.

"Remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world."  (Ephesians 2:12 NASB)

2.  ROCK BOTTOM DEMANDS CHANGE.

"When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”  (John 5:6 NASB)

"The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”  (John 5:7 NASB)

“Jesus, the Unexpected King!”

“When the men had come to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, ‘Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?’” (Luke 7:20 NKJV)

1.  Look in unexpected places!

“…and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29 NKJV)

2.  Expand your Jesus box!

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me…” (Galatians 2:20 NASB)

3.  Our expectations limits God’s blessing!

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.“ And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”

(Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT)

"When You're Ignored”

“I’ve got something to say. Is anybody listening? I’ve a warning to post. Will anyone notice? It’s hopeless! Their ears are stuffed with wax—deaf as a post, blind as a bat. It’s hopeless! They’ve tuned out God. They don’t want to hear from me.” Jer 6:10 MSG

  • GARDENER ON DUTY

1.  G.O.D. KNOWS YOU: YOU’RE CALLED TO PLANT SEEDS AND TO SPEAK LIFE!!

Jer 1:10 NIV

2.  G.O.D. SEES YOU: DO WHAT YOU CAN, AND LEAVE YOUR MARK!!

"Jesus, the Lover of Haters”

Then JESUS said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”  And they divided His garments and cast lots.  (Luke 23:34 NKJV)

1.  DARKNESS GIVES JESUS THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHINE.

“Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.  Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.” (Luke 23:44-45 NKJV)

2.  YOU CANNOT FORGIVE IF YOU DON’T HAVE TRUST.

And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last.” (Luke 23:46 NKJV)

3.  DON’T PREACH CHRIST, BE CHRIST LIKE 

“So, when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, “Certainly this was a righteous Man!” And the whole crowd who came together to that sight, seeing what had been done, beat their breasts and returned.” (Luke 23:47-48 NKJV)

"When Your Plans are Shattered”

  • YOU’LL BE TEMPTED TO LOSE HOPE

“My best days have passed, my plans are shattered, and my heart’s desires are broken…Where then is my hope? Can anyone SEE any hope for me?” (Job 17:11 & 15)

  • BOTH HOPE AND HOPELESSNESS ARE CAUSED BY WHAT I FOCUS ON

“I have set the LORD continually before me…” (Psalm 16:8 NASB)

1.  SET THE LORD IN FRONT OF YOU, AND FOCUS ON HIM

“Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…” (James 4:7-8 NASB)

2.  PUT YOUR SHATTERED PLANS IN GOD’S HANDS, AND TRUST HIM

"Jesus, the 2nd Mile!”

If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.  Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one

who wants to borrow from you.  Matthew 5:41-42 (NIV)

1.  Our Lives Can Be Lived on 3 Levels:

  • Hellish Level – To return evil for good

  • Human Level – To return good for good and evil for evil

  • Heavenly Level – To return good for evil

2.  THE PRINCIPLE OF THE 2ND MILE IS TO DO MORE THAN WHAT IS REQUIRED OR EXPECTED OF US.  BE EXTRA!

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.  Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.  Colossians 3:23-24 (NLT)

3.  POSSESS THESE “MILE-STONES” IN OUR LIVES TO RECEIVE 2ND MILE BLESSINGS:

  • CHARACTER MILE – “People with good intentions make promises, but people with good character keep...

"When You're Still Hungry!”

  • YOU’LL BE TEMPTED TO LOSE HOPE WHEN YOU DON’T SEE ANY FRUIT.

It’s hopeless!  I am like a hungry person who finds no fruit left on the trees and no grapes on the vines.  All the grapes and all the tasty figs have been picked.  (Micah 7:1 GNT)

Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me.

(Micah 7:7 NKJV)

1.  LOOK TO THE LORD:  TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE LACK.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV)

2.  LOOK TO THE LORD:  ABANDON SELF-DEPENDENCY.

3.  WAIT FOR THE LORD: WAIT WITH EARNEST EXPECTATION.

I will wait for the God of my salvation; (Micah 7:7 NKJV)

4.  MY GOD WILL HEAR ME:  BE READY FOR AN ANSWER, IT MIGHT BE PRUNING TIME.

Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.

“Jesus, the UNpopular”

When Being Narrow Minded is Good!

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it”  (Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV)

  • Narrow minded is the way to life and peace.

1.  YOU MUST STRIVE TO GET UNDERSTANDING SO THAT YOU CAN MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES.

“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.  Though it cost all you have, get understanding”.  (Proverbs 4:7 NIV)

“Repent and believe the Gospel.  The narrow gate is just that because you have to leave everything behind to get through.”

(Mark 1:15 ESV)

2.  RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ARE TWO GATES; ONE TO HEAVEN AND ONE TO HELL AND OBEDIENCE IS THE WAY.

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to t...
