The Strength of the Brand
if a person is convinced that the brand is superior then he will choose every time
Tylenol over store brand, Apple vs anything else
an apple fanatic will stand in line for hrs in cold
will bring up the Apple brand in most conversations
asking someone to change their brand is asking to change who they are
they will market the brand and be a brand evangelist
people become irrational about their brand
Tylenol $2.00, store brand $1. 50
Patrick Muller $300,000 rv Philadelphia Eagles
went from being a consumer to an Ambassador
Ambassador = a legal representative of a foreign government
His Identity is totally infused with being an Eagle
has gone past being rational.
time, commitment, money, off his rocker
recap; corporate worship
according to the truth of Gods word
we dress to honor God not our comfort or pleasure
come to worship with our 5 senses
taste smell touch eyes hearing
God deserves our worship 24/7
so we go to work to worship
go to school
this is NOT a command / or being forced
God wants us to enthusiastically volunteer
The brand we are promoting is the Kingdom of Heaven
Jesus wants ambassadors to Him
We are not our own
If we are not our own then..
we need to die to self
pick up our cross daily (put our self under the authority of Jesus)
we begin to live when we die to self
John Calvin said rightly and precisely, “We are redeemed by the Lord for the purpose of consecrating ourselves and all our members to him.”2
Give your life to God for death so you can begin to live
By faith trusting that Gods will is good
good for us, good to us, its just good
acceptable to us
perfect to and for us
Give Yourself to God
Old law the man gave the priest the sacrifice ...
We are the priest giving the sacrifice to God
Take Jesus example He gave himself for us we are to give
Give our whole body
our mind who do we give it to?
Satan controls 99% of television
Controls most corporations
Prince and power of the air
all commercials are convincing you, you cant live without it
the books we read are they Godly?
You are what you consume
are they worldly or Godly ideas?
hands an feet
an example of giving to God
2 Corinthians 8 1-5
Holy and acceptable
Pleasing unto God
What goes into the temple of the Lord, our bodies?
what comes out of our mouth?
what do our eyes see?
God is Looking For You
are you an ambassador for The Kingdom?
are you a fanatic for the brand- Jesus?
your worship, is it reserved for Sunday morning only?
your Identity/ who you are/ is it tied to Jesus?
your logical act of worship is to give yourself to God
What are you going to do?
