BUILT - NEW PREACHING SERIES

When the storms of life come, are you BUILT?

When the rains descend, floods rise and winds blow, are you unshakeable and unmovable; are you unstoppable?

Is the storm:

  • A relationship

  • A disappointment

  • A fear

  • A compulsive and destructive behavior

  • An under resourced vision

  • A biological weakness

PSALM 127:1-5 NKJV (Solomon said) Unless the LORD BUILDS the house, They labor in vain who BUILD it; 

  • QUESTION: HOW DOES THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE?

MATTHEW 7:24-27 NKJV (Jesus said) Therefore WHOEVER hears these SAYINGS OF MINE, and DOES THEM, I will liken him to a WISE MAN who BUILT his HOUSE ON THE ROCK: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who BUILT his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.

RIGHTEOUSNESS MEANS…

  • I measure up

  • I meet the standard

EMOTIONAL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS

the intensely painful thinking and feeling  

- or the experience of believing -

that we are flawed and therefore unworthy

of God’s love and belonging;

it is fearing that God is mad at you!

ROMANS 5:17 NKJV For if by (Adam’s original sin) death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

2 CORINTHIANS 5:21 NKJV For God made Jesus, who knew no sin, [to be] sin for us, that WE MIGHT BECOME (MADE) the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM.
