Relentless Pursuit of God's Calling for Kingsway

Sermon Notes

When prayer is part of the process - there is always joy.

Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭17‬-‭19a NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe."

Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭19b‬-‭23‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

"That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way."

Acts‬ ‭19‬:‭17‬-‭18‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬

"When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor. Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done."‬‬‬‬

Acts‬ ‭19‬:‭19‬-‭20‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬

"A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. In this way, the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power."‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

We always gravitate to our comfort zone. It's a great starting point, but God never stops at our comfort zone.  Because pressure brings transformation!

Our Mission: to become more like Jesus.

Luke‬ ‭19‬:‭10‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

"For the Son of Man (Jesus) came to seek and to save the lost." 

"Find some friends, change the world, and have fun doing it."  - Billy Graham

Acts‬ ‭20:22-24‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

"And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace."‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Acts‬ ‭20:35‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
