    Morning Service – Community
    Series: Community
    Community I. People in a community have things in common. Proverbs 22:2 Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD is the Maker of them all. We are a community of Believers! ~ Common Faith Titus 1:4 To Titus, my true son in our common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior. Jude 1:3(KJV) Common salvation ~ Common Temptations & escape routes 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. ~ Common Possessions Acts 2:44-45 All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Acts 4:32-35 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God's grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need. II. People in a community have UNITY! ~ Unity is a choice 2 Chronicles 30:12 Also in Judah the hand of God was on the people to give them unity of mind to carry out what the king and his officials had ordered, following the word of the LORD. ~ Untity is a blessing Psalm 133:1 How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity! ~ The world is watching believers John 17:23 I in them and you in me–so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. ~ Unity takes effort Ephesians 4:1-3 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

    What is a father? Luke 3:38 the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God. Malachi 2:10a Do we not all have one Father? Did not one God create us? Mark 14:36 “Abba, Father” Galatians 4:6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” 3 qualities of our Heavenly Father 1. He loves you (John 3:16) 2. He is always ready to listen to you Jeremiah 33:3 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.' 3. He disciplines his children because he loves them. Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. God is a father to the fatherless. Psalm 68:5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. Psalm 10:14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.

    Morning Service – Life With a Purpose
    Life with a Purpose God is Purpose Driven Isaiah 46:9-10 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.' 2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life– not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time Even unbelievers have a purpose in God's plan Romans 9:17-18 Work gives us purpose! 1 Chronicles 23:3-5 John 20:30-31 God's purpose may be very different than our purpose Acts 26:14-18 If it is God's purpose it is unstoppable Acts 5:27-39 Acts 13:36 “Now when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors and his body decayed. Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. We will be rewarded for remaining in His purpose 1 Corinthians 3:8 The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. 1. Prioritize Your Life Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 2. Do what you love to do Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 3. Keep the door open for future opportunities Luke 19:17 'Well done, my good servant!' his master replied. 'Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.' 4. Avoid being lazy Proverbs 10:4 Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth. Hebrews 6:12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. 5. The older we get, the harder it is to change Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”.

    Morning Service – Studying God’s Word
    Studying God's Word 1) Know God/Christ personally & His plan 2) Know how to live for our Lord now, and focus on eternity with Him. 1. Textual Bible Study 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2. Topical / word Study John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands. John 14:21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. 3. Biographical 4. Memorization / Meditation Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Joshua 1:8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Psalm 119:97 Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. James 1:22-25 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it–not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it– they will be blessed in what they do.

    Morning Service – God’s Image of Us
    I. Children develop their first self-Image at home Proverbs 1:8 Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching. Proverbs 31:1-9 1 John 3:1-3 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. II. What does God think about us? 1. We are designed after God Genesis 1:27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Psalm 139:13-14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 2. God has a plan for our lives Romans 8:14-17 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Ephesians 1:4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. Eph. 1:13-14 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession–to the praise of his glory. 1 Samuel 16:7 But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 3. Christians are unique 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. Galatians 4:6-7 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God's child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir. Romans 8:14-15 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 4. Christians have a purpose for their life Philippians 3:10 I want to know Christ–yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. 2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. Psalm 20:6-7 Now this I know: The LORD gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Isaiah 64:8 Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
