You Against You = Not What GOD wants

Matthew 12:25 – Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.’…”

When I am against myself – I will not stand.

But we say, “No – I must die and Christ must live.” Yes – but check this out – is God against you or for you?

For you.

We shouldn’t be against ourselves, but be for ourselves – who we are in Jesus Christ.

What Christ said wasn’t to constantly cut yourself down, but to lose yourself and make Him Lord.

Bringing yourself down all the time will get you nowhere – trust me, I know. Rather than cutting ourselves down (which is not what Christ wants us to do), we must be for ourselves as people of Christ.

Believe in Christ’s power in your life – believe – believe – believe- & be.

A house divided against itself will fall.

But stand in & let Christ’s power work through you in everything you do (Philippians 4:13).

Say to yourself, “This is one house not divided – but secure with the foundation of Jesus Christ.”

Fruit-caking wake up and experience the power we have to overcome everything in Jesus Christ!!! Don't be divided against yourself.


Q
-&-A:

1)      Where have you been cutting yourself down the most? How has that been productive? Realize that cutting yourself down is counter-productive to building yourself and God's Kingdom up.

2)      What does God say about you? Don’t believe lies that Satan tells you, but look through the Bible & write down 5 things that God says about you. (i.e.: He made you in His image…; For God so loved you that He sent His one and only Son…)

3)      Pray, simply, that God would help you overcome your problem areas of self-image and that He’d give you His strength to conquer & overcome for His Glory. That He'd let you see yourself as He sees you. Believe.

 
Another disciple said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”   Mt 8:21-22

The time Jesus had on earth was short - and He devoted it to training and instructing others.

Jesus' response to a man is very important here - He recognized what was most important and kept to it.

I tend to be swayed by other peoples' desires. I'd say, "Ok, we'll wait for you." But Jesus was saying, "We're heading this way, either hop on or get our of the way!"

LEADership. Jesus had a great, big convoy and he knew where He was leading it. He knew what not to stop for.

He had direction, motivation & education.

Direction - We're healing & teaching til the cross
Motivation - I love God & these people...
Education (of where to put His time) - We won't stop here - or there. We must keep moving. He knew where not to stop.

Do you know where NOT to stop? Do you have a "To-Don't" list?

I really need to make one...

Keep your eyes on the goal. Eagle-eye it. Don't ignore people, but say, "This is where I'm heading - I need to know if you want to join me or not."

Mt 8:21-22

Q&A:

What do you need to no longer stop for?
In other words, what's holding you back from running with what you've been called to do?

What have you been called to do?

Write down these three things:
      1) Direction - where you're heading
      2) Motivation - your motivation for your direction
      3) Education - your knowledge of where not to stop.
