The Sovereign Will of God

Psalm 23
"The Lord is my Shepherd..."

1. He is a Personal Shepherd.

2. He is a Providing Shepherd.

3. He is a Pardoning Shepherd.

4. He is a Protecting Shepherd.

5. He is a Preparing Shepherd.

*God chooses what we go through, but we choose how we go through it.*

Worry less, pray more, trust ALWAYS.

Key verses: Phil. 4:19 ; Psalm 34:9 ; II Cor. 5:21

What Does It Mean to Walk in the Holy Spirit?

It means to live each moment in touch with the Holy Spirit, be sensitive to His voice, and be obedient to Him.

When the Spirit speaks to your heart, obey it immediately; delayed obedience is disobedience.

There is no greater example of selfless humanity than Jesus.

Key verses: Gal. 5:16; Prov. 1:33; Phil. 2:5

How can we win the spiritual battle?

*know that God sees everything
*know that your sins will be found out
*know that God is keeping watch
*know that our responsibility is subject to God's sovereignty

Key verses: Psalm 33:13; Prov. 5:21-22; Prov. 15:3; Prov. 16:1-3

The Holy Spirit will guide us IF we die to ourselves daily.

We have three enemies: the world, our flesh, and the devil.

We should set our minds on Spiritual things. Rom. 8:5

Our Spiritual battles are in our mind and in our behavior.
We must set our minds on obedience.
We must be prepared for Spiritual battle.
We must remember that apart from Him, we are inadequate.

Key verses: James 1:12-13; Eph. 4:29-32; Rom. 6: 15-16; I Peter 1:13; Phil. 4:13

What will make your Christianity authentic?

It isn't a "Sunday" lifestyle!

It IS a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday...on and on in the cycle-of-living lifestyle.

So much so, that Christ fits naturally into the conversation and lifestyle of the Believer.

Rom. 13:14 "Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts."

In worship, there is no place that is free from God's touch.

Resistance pushes Him away. And so worship is a response - an active, open, unguarded response to God, whereby we declare His worth in an intimate manner, leaving Him room to touch us, to flood us with His peaceful presence.

Psalm 32:7 "You are my hiding place, You shall preserve me from trouble, You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah"

The Holy Spirit

Over the past several weeks, we have discussed:
*Who He Is
*Our Relationship With Him
*What He Does In Our Lives
*Why Many Christians Aren't Filled With The Holy Spirit

Today's Lesson Topic:
"What Does It Mean To Walk In The Spirit?"

When we totally submit our lives,
1. The inner longings of our hearts are gratified. (self-ward) Psalm 16:11
2. We glorify God. (God-ward) Matt. 5:16
3. We bring Salvation and blessing to others. (man-ward) Acts 4:14; Acts 9:15

Stephen was an example in the Bible. Acts 6:1; Acts 7:51-60

Missions Sunday

After a great Missions Conference week, there was no Adult Bible Fellowship class.

Notes of interest:

TOGO will be this coming Saturday, 5:30, at the Owasso High School.

Curtis Ellis reported that the mission to KC was well received and all supplies were appreciated. He thinks most of their basic needs have been met. Thanks for being a blessing!!
