037 Transform Me Lord

2021-04-3013:14

Every Christian who desires to be transformed needs to know and live in these two verses. This is the core of the transformation process. Romans 12:1–2 (NLT) 1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Lord, Sometimes we think, because you are so majestic, that you are far out there somewhere, too big to know or care. But you are also our Abba Father, and you know what we need even before we ask. and you always care Psalm 8:1–4 (NLT) 1 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens . . . 3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place— 4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Matthew 6:8 . . . for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! Psalm 40:5 . . . O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.

The Lord remembers us and will bless us . . . He will bless those who fear the Lord, both great and lowly.

When the disciples thought they were going to drown in a storm, Jesus came walking to them on the water. But, he didn’t say, don’t be afraid, because I can walk on water. Instead, He said, “Take courage. I am here!” Acts 26:15 (NLT) 15 “ ‘Who are you, lord?’ I asked. “And the Lord replied, ‘I am Jesus . . . Matthew 14:27 (NLT) 27 But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!” Matthew 1:23 (NLT) (moved) 23 . . . they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’ ” Isaiah 43:2–3 (NLT) 2 When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. 3 For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior . . . Psalm 23:4 (NLT) 4 Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. Matthew 1:21 (NKJV) 21 . . . you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins. 1 John 2:1 (NLT) 1 . . . if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. Romans 8:34–35 (NLT) 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us. 35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love?

033 Mighty To Save

033 Mighty To Save

2021-04-1517:30

Our God is mighty to save. He is mighty to Redeem us, Deliver us, and to keep us from falling. The POWER in our salvation is God’s – not ours. After you listen to this podcast, please consider sharing it with someone who needs to hear these truths – straight from God’s Word. Jeremiah 50:34 (NLT) 34 But the one who redeems them is strong. His name is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. . . . Amos 5:12 (NLT) 12 For I know the vast number of your sins and the depth of your rebellions . . . Psalm 89:19 (NLT) 19 . . . “I have raised up a warrior . . . Isaiah 49:26 (NLT) 26 . . . All the world will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel.” Isaiah 63:1 (NLT) 1 . . . It is I, the Lord, announcing your salvation! It is I, the Lord, who has the power to save!” Jude 24 (NLT) 24 Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. Romans 5:20 (NLT) 20 God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. John 3:18 (NLT) 18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. Hebrews 7:25 (NLT) 25 Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him . . . Isaiah 50:2 (NKJV) 2 . . . Is My hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem? Or have I no power to deliver? . . . Romans 8:35 (NLT) 35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? (NO) Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity (NO), or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? Romans 8:38–39 (NLT) 38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Proverbs 3:9 (NLT) Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. 2 Corinthians 9:6 (NLT) Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. 1 Corinthians 16:2 (NLT) On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. Don’t wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once. Hebrews 6:10 (NLT) For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do. Romans 12:1 (NLT) And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Corinthians 5:14–15 (NLT) Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. 15 He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. 1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
2 Corinthians 6:10 (NLT) 10 Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and yet we have everything. Romans 5:2–3 (NLT) 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. 3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 2 Corinthians 7:4 (NLT) 4 I have the highest confidence in you, and I take great pride in you. You have greatly encouraged me and made me happy despite all our troubles. 1 Peter 1:8 (NLT) 8 You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. 2 Corinthians 8:2 (NLT) 2 They are being tested by many troubles, and they are very poor. But they are also filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity. Ephesians 3:8–9 (NLT) 8 Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ. 9 I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning. James 2:5 (NLT) 5 Listen to me, dear brothers and sisters. Hasn’t God chosen the poor in this world to be rich in faith? Aren’t they the ones who will inherit the Kingdom he promised to those who love him? 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NLT) 8 And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
PART 2 - What do you do when you feel separated from God? When you feel distant from him? When you feel like you can’t sense his presence or hear his voice? Psalm 51:1–17 (NLT) 1 Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. 2 Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. 3 For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. 4 Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just. 5 For I was born a sinner— yes, from the moment my mother conceived me. 6 But you desire honesty from the womb, teaching me wisdom even there. 7 Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 8 Oh, give me back my joy again; you have broken me— now let me rejoice. 9 Don’t keep looking at my sins. Remove the stain of my guilt. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. 11 Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. 13 Then I will teach your ways to rebels, and they will return to you. 14 Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves; then I will joyfully sing of your forgiveness. 15 Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise you. 16 You do not desire a sacrifice, or I would offer one. You do not want a burnt offering. 17 The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
PART 1 - What do you do when you feel separated from God? When you feel distant from him? When you feel like you can’t sense his presence or hear his voice? Psalm 42:1–6 (NLT) 1 As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. 2 I thirst for God, the living God. When can I go and stand before him? 3 Day and night I have only tears for food, while my enemies continually taunt me, saying, “Where is this God of yours?” 4 My heart is breaking as I remember how it used to be: I walked among the crowds of worshipers, leading a great procession to the house of God, singing for joy and giving thanks amid the sound of a great celebration! 5 Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and 6 my God! Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember you . . .
