Moving Forward

Notes
Transcript
As we start to welcome everyone back in to the church and start adjusting on what it is that we are suppose to do. It is time to start talking about what it is we are suppose to do in moving forward and what that should look like not for us as a Church, but us a followers of Christ.
As we Start lets first start in prayer.

How to Move on

I know that biggest question that is on everyone mind how do we move on. How do we move forward?
Well the truth is we never should of stop going. As we read in our verses today we will see that we should have been working hard to serve the God that give to us so freely.
2 Timothy 2:15 CSB
15 Be diligent to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth.
We see here that we are called to be ready to be a worker. we shouldn’t just give us just because we were locked inside. Here it doesn’t say for us to stop working, it says for us to always be ready to work.
The question becomes how do we move forward the truth is we as follower of Christ need to take a step back and examine ourselves and say how do we tend to take what it is we have learned and us it to show others of Christ.
The first step in doing that to move forward is to Not Fear and Trust God.

Not Fear, Trust God

We are not to fear the Trials that God gives us because we see time and time again that he is their to build us and protect us.
Numbers 14:7–8 CSB
7 and said to the entire Israelite community: “The land we passed through and explored is an extremely good land. 8 If the Lord is pleased with us, he will bring us into this land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and give it to us.
We know here everyone is doubt that the lord was in control and that he would allow them to enter the promise land. as we read here we see that all it took was the two people to show Gods glory. we also know because of their fear they did not get to enter the promise land when they would have took it. We have to remember to be like Joshua and Caleb, we have to be ready to conquer the challenge in front of us in order to move forward.

We Have TO Love

Matthew 5:43–44 CSB
43 “You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
We as Christians in order to be ready to move forward we have to be ready to love everyone that comes in the door. When it is talking about love it does not just mean make them feel welcome in the church. It mean we should never have qurrals or harse words to say to anyone.
Everyone we come in contact with we should love and be ready to pray for. we should be ready to respect everyone not just the adults, the youth, the children. we are to love if we are to be ready to move forward.
Finally we to move forward we have to ask ourselves

Audience Of One

What are you doing to please the Audience of one today? If you were to sit face to face with Christ would he say I am please that you served me today.
