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!

“DOING LIFE IN ORANGE” Series (Part Three)
Today’s point:   Doing life together isn’t either/or; it’s both/and.
“It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this I-know-better-than-you mentality again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your own part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor. Luke 6:41-42 MSG
1.) Kids need to be encouraged to ASK PARENTS FOR HELP in advancing their relationship with God.
Someday your children will ask, ” Why did the LORD give us these laws and teachings?” Deuteronomy 6:20 CEV
2.) Parents need to focus on working on ONE SMALL THING AT A TIME.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 NKJV
“Have you forgotten how good parents treat children…Would you prefer an irresponsible God? We respect our own parents for training and not spoiling us, so why not embrace God’s training so we can truly live? While we were children, our parents did what seemed best to them. But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best.” Hebrews 12:5, 8-10 MSG
3.) The church needs to give families a plan, and teach them how to follow it.
–“There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened, and maintained.”—-Winston Churchill
“I am the Real Vine and my Father is the Farmer. He cuts off every branch of me that doesn’t bear grapes. And every branch that is grape-bearing he prunes back so it will bear even more. You are already pruned back by the message I have spoken. John 15:1-3 MSG
“I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing.” John 15:5 MSG
SYNERGY: Two or more things functioning together to produce a result not independently obtainable. (Simply put in our situation: two of the three; parent, children, and church, working together to do something that not one of them could do alone.)
Your next steps today….
I will commit to synching my family with the church by….
a) Listening to my kids when they ask for help in understanding God.
b) Doing small things with them everyday that will show them God’s character in our family.
c) Partnering with the church & implemeting the plan they’ve shown me.
d) Giving my life to Christ and accepting Him into my life.

“DOING LIFE IN ORANGE” Series (Part Two)
Today’s point:  “The heart of God should be primarily communicated through the heart of the family.”
I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands. Exodus 20:6 NLT
 “Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 6:4-6 NLT
1. FOCUS your priorites on what matters MOST.
Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 MSG
2. PUT yourself FIRST when it comes to personal growth.
He also told them a parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. Luke 6:39-40 ESV
3. PURSUE whatever your kids NEED to have an authentic relationship with them.
…we were like a mother feeding and caring for her own children. We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too. 1 Thessalonians 2:7-8 NLT
We loved you dearly. Not content to just pass on the Message, we wanted to give you our hearts. And we did. 1 Thessalonians 2:8 MSG
Your next steps today….
I will fullfill my family’s role today by….
a) Committing to influencing my kids to have an authentic relationship with God.
b) Giving my relationship with God top priority in my actions, my conversations, and my example.
c) Pursuing healthy interaction with my family on a consistent basis.
d) Offering my life to Christ and accepting Him into my life.
