From the series: “Christian Imposter”
SUPERSTITION: a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation. 
SUPERNATURAL: of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable; especially : of or relating to God.
(But He isn’t always, has never claimed to be, and never will.)
1. Sometimes God says “NO”!  (Acts 12:1-5 NIV)
2. Sometimes God says “OBEY”!  (Acts 12:6-11 NIV)
3. Sometimes God says “YES”!  (Acts 12:12-17 NIV)
God’s character is not determined by our circumstances!

We > Me

From the series: ”  > ”  (Greater Than)
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20 NLT
God’s “Bigger Picture” requires us to work together AS CHRISTIANS.
What is God’s bigger Picture?
How can I get involved?
Three Ways People Worked Towards the “Bigger Picture”:
1. By TAKING RISKS. (Rahab and the two spies: Joshua 2:1-22)
2. By BEING COMMITTED. (David and Jonathan: 1 Samuel 20:1-42)
3. By SETTING THE EXAMPLE. (Jesus: Matthew 1- John 21)
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere–in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.” Acts 1:8 NLT
Matthew 1:1-16— The Genealogy of Jesus
Rahab and Jonathan played a role in Jesus “Bigger Picture”: SALVATION FOR EVERYONE.
Walk away point: When WE recognize God’s “Bigger Picture” and live as though we are meant to fulfill it, we BECOME GREATER.

“He must become greater; I must become less.” John 3:30
Three truths about serving:
1. Serving is NEVER about us.
2. People see God through serving.
3. Serving HUMBLES us.
Walk away point:
We need to become >.

Doing > Talking

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13  
Problem: There are Christians today who are “spiritually asleep“.
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. Matthew 27:50-53
Q: Why is this important?
A: Because Christians can’t lead other to life when they are dead inside.
 Anyone who claims to live to be intimate with God ought to live the same kind of life Jesus lived. 1 John 2:6
 Solution: Christians need to become greater than they are now.
 How to become greater than:
 1. Make our actions > our words.
 What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.  James 2:14, 26
 2. Understand that God > you.
David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies–the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 1 Samuel 17:45
God wants you to stop watching and start living!
You have 3 choices of what kind of Christian you want to be:
1.) Spectator
3.)Servant (hint: Jesus is our example to learn from, Jesus was a servant.)

From the series: “I AM SECOND” 
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
1. Who am I sumbitting to? God, or the world?
Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever. 1 John 2:15-17
2.) Who am I resisting? God, or the devil?
“Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.” James 4:4b
“Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.” Romans 12:21
**DOING GOOD REQUIRES YOU TO: Become powerless. (Humbleness: a feeling of insignificance, inferiority, subservience.)** 
3.) Am I receiving God’s POWER by becoming POWERLESS?


“Toxic Relationships”

Original Message/Sermon: Kevin Cox
From One50Five service on 7/24/11.
(listen to sermon at
Toxic: Week Three
– Toxic: anything containing posionous material capable of causing serious sickness or even death.
Do not be mislead: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33
Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will spread like gangrene.  2 Timothy 2:16-17
1) Set healthy BOUNDARIES.
Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.” Matthew 16:23
Two ways to help set healthy boundaries:
a- “I won’t let you talk to me or treat me that way.”
b- “I’m no going there with you.”
2) Cut OFF the toxic relationship.
(Potiphar’s wife) caught (Joseph) by his cloak and said, “Come to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house. Genesis 39:12
Walk-away point:
God’s cure for toxic relationships: QUIT INJECTING THEM INTO YOUR LIFE!

 (I want to apologize for beginning on week two of the Toxic series, I was unable to attend or get the handout the first night.)
Toxic: Week Two
– Toxic: anything containing posionous material capable of causing serious sickness or even death.
Proverbs 25:26: ‘Like a muddied spring or a polluted well is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked.’
Three things to remember:
1) A little bit of POISON goes a long way.
1 Corinthians 5:6-7: “Don’t you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast — as you really are.”
2) Just because everyone else does it, doesn’t make it RIGHT.
Romans 12:2 (MSG paraphrase): “Do not become so well-adjusted to your culture that you FIT INTO IT WITHOUT EVEN THINKING. Instead, FIX YOUR ATTENTION ON GOD. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops a well-formed maturity in you.”
3) Just because I COULD, doesn’t mean I SHOULD.
1 Corinthians 6:12: “Everything is permissable for me, but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissable for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.”
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22: “Test everything. Hold on to good. Avoid every kind of evil.”

True-ish Series (week 4)
-Subjectivism: “I, the subject, have the right to determine what is right and wrong without submitting my judgement to any authority outside of myself.
-Because of subjectivism, our virtues have shifted from Justice to Tolerance.
“They will reject the truth and chase after myths.”  2 Timothy 4:4
1) I’m not a bad person.
2) You have no right to tell me how to live.
3) I can justify doing anything I want to do.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.  They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,  slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.   Romans 1:28-32 NIV
1) You are a bad person.
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.  1 John 1:8
2) You can receive forgiveness and start the process of healing through Jesus Christ.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

As Long As You’re Sincere

True-ish Series (week 3)
“The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paulo and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”   Acts 16:29-30
Some quick statistics:
-53% of American adults believe if a person is generally good, he’ll go to Heaven.
-43% of born again Christians agreed: ‘It doesn’t matter what religious faith you follow because all faiths teach similar lessons about life.”
-57% of evangelical church members said they believe many religions can lead to eternal life.
The Question: Are all world religions basically the same and mostly true?
1) Just because you’re SINCERE doesn’t make what you believe TRUE.
2) There is TRUTH in many world religions, but all world religions can’t be TRUE.
3) Discovering and living TRUTH matter more than anything else in life.
Let’s take a close look at Jesus.
1) Look at what Jesus TAUGHT.
“Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.”  Luke 6:27-29
2) Look at the MIRACLES Jesus performed.
“What’s this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles!  Mark 6:2
3) Look at the RESURRECTION.
“… God raised (Jesus) from the dead. We are witnesses of this.  Acts 3:15
4) Look at what Jesus CLAIMED.
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  John 14:6
We only have three options to choose from when it comes to Jesus:
1) Jesus is a liar.
2) Jesus is a lunatic.
3) Jesus is Lord.
What about you?
“Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  Matthew 16:15-16

As Long As You’re Happy

True(ish) Week Two

“May all who are godly be happy….” (Psalm 97:12)


1. If God wants me happy and I’m not then God FAILED.

2. The pursuit of happiness SEEMS right.

“There is a way that SEEMS RIGHT to a man, but in the end it LEADS TO DEATH.” (Proverbs 14:12)


1. It shouldn’t cause you to do something WRONG OR UNWISE.

~”But just as he who called you is HOLY, so be HOLY in all you do…” (1 Peter 1:15)

False: “Since I’m not happy, I’m allowed to do something that otherwise would be WRONG.”

2. It shouldn’t be ONLY based on things in this world.

The world’s formula for happiness:

Better possessions + peaceful circumstances + thrilling experiences + the right relationships + the perfect appearance = HAPPINESS.

“Do not LOVE THE WORLD or ANYTHING IN THE WORLD. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world- the CRAVINGS OF SINFUL MAN, the LUST OF HIS EYES and the BOASTING OF WHAT HE HAS and does- comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires PASS AWAY, but the man who does the will of God LIVES FOREVER.”  (1 John 2:15-17)

In Greek, the word “blessed” is defined as: Makarios (mak-ar’-ee-os) supremely blessed, MORE than happy.

Walk away point:

God doesn’t want you to be HAPPY, He wants you to be BLESSED.

“BLESSED is the man who FEARS THE LORD, who finds great delight in his commands.” (Psalm 112:1

“May all who are godly be happy IN THE LORD (most people love to stop this verse now, and ignore the rest which states:) AND PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!” (Psalm 97:12 NLT)
