SERMON SERIES DESCRIPTION:
Hollywood's biggest blockbusters are coming to LifePointe Church! Bring your entire family for the full "cinema" experience! This Fall movie marathon will feature a different film every Sunday for 5-weeks. The sermons will take a look at each movie and offer valuable insight into the victorious principles of Christ. Today's movies have a way of dramatically transferring emotion generated through pain and recovery, opposition and victory, mystery and clarity, and grieving losses and peace. These emotions powerfully move from the big screen into our immediate moment. At the Movies is a chance for us to turn these emotional experiences into the relevant principles found in Scripture. 5-weeks of blockbuster hits. Popcorn and/or movie candy (munch during service like you are at the theater).
Due to copyright laws these messages will be available in person or streamed live online, but after that they will no longer be available on the website. So make sure to attend all 5-weeks or watch during one of our live services at mylifepointe.com.
TODAY'S MOVIE - GIFTED
Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) in a coastal town in Florida. Frank's plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old's mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank's formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary's landlady and best friend. Jenny Slate is Mary's teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well.

MEANING, PURPOSE AND FULFILLMENT
INTO YOUR LIFE?
WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? WHAT WOULD JESUS SAY?
MATTHEW 22:36-40 NKJV "Teacher, which [is] the GREAT COMMANDMENT in the law?" 37 Jesus said to him, "'You shall LOVE the LORD your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' 38 "This is [the] first and great commandment. 39 "And [the] second [is] like it: 'You shall LOVE your NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF.' 40 "On these two commandments HANG ALL the Law and the Prophets."
YOU WERE CREATED TO KNOW AND BE KNOWN.
- BY GOD
1 CORINTHIANS 1:9 KJV God is faithful, by whom ye were CALLED unto the FELLOWSHIP of his Son JESUS CHRIST our Lord.
2 TIMOTHY 1:9-10 KJV Who hath saved us, and CALLED us with an holy CALLING, not according to our works, but according to his own PURPOSE and grace, which was GIVEN US in Christ Jesus before the world began…
Your CALLING is to know God.
- BY PEOPLE
GENESIS 2:18 NKJV And the LORD God said, "[It is] NOT GOOD that man should be ALONE; I will make him a helper comparable to him."
1 CORINTHIANS 12:27-31 NKJV Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. 28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. 29 [Are] all apostles? [Are] all prophets? [Are] all teachers? [Are] all workers of miracles? SLIDE 10 30 Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues [referring to the ministry of tongues, not the devotional prayer language]? Do all interpret? 31 But earnestly desire the BEST GIFTS. And yet I show you a MORE EXCELLENT WAY.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:1-3, 8 NKJV Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but HAVE NOT LOVE, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have [the gift of] prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but HAVE NOT LOVE, I am nothing. SLIDE 12 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, but HAVE NOT LOVE, it profits me nothing. ... 8 LOVE NEVER FAILS…
You can’t expect to raise children who LOVE GOD
if you are not pursuing love with God.
2 TIMOTHY 3:15 NKJV … FROM CHILDHOOD you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for SALVATION through FAITH which is in Christ Jesus.
DEUTERONOMY 6:6-7 NKJV And these words which I COMMAND you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY to your CHILDREN, and shall TALK OF THEM when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
PROVERBS 22:6 NKJV TRAIN up a child in the way he SHOULD GO, And when he is old he WILL NOT DEPART from it.
