I ❤ My Church-Series (Week Three)
 
Today’s Point: Growing people change and changing people grow.
 
I love my church because…..
 
1. I am challenged to change the way I think to the way JESUS THINKS.
 
Proverbs 4:23 (NCV) Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.
 
Romans 8:6 (NLT) If your sinful nature controls your mind, there is death. But if the Holy Spirit controls your mind, there is life and peace.
 
Romans 12:2 (NLT) Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
 
2. I am challenged change through putting God’s word INTO PRACTICE.
 
Matthew 7:24-27 (NIV) “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
 
**Listening and doing is called obeying.**
 
John 14:15 (NIV) “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” 
 
Philippians 2:12-13 (NIV) Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
 
3. I am encouraged to place my HOPE IN JESUS.
 
Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
 
Philippians 4:19 (NIV) And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
