A 5 step model for praying for healing is introduced. This model is easy to use and treats each person with respect.
This session starts with a thoroughly rounded presentation for the Biblical evidence for the importance of healing in the nature of God, the ministry of Jesus and the ministry of the disciples and then finishes with people praying for one another.
After prayer for some world events the sermon begins. Through looking at Caleb we see a man of a different spirit and we are encouraged to make our lives count.
This sermon compares ceremonial purity, moral purity and purity of the heart. We are blessed when our our hearts are purified, and this enables us to see God right now but one day we will see Him face to face. The important thing is that God is looking at our hearts.
Jesus points to a different way of life – a life where godly characteristics develop in our lives from the inside out. This beatitude focuses on showing loving kindness to those around us. One block to reaching out in mercy to others is unforgiveness.
What are you desperate for in your life? Jesus tells us we are blessed when we are hungering and thirsting after righteousness. Core values are unpacked.
We see that meekness has a different meaning to what we normally think. It is an attitude of strength that is under control. There are great blessings attached as we allow God to work this characteristic in our lives.
When Lazurus came forth out the tomb, he was alive, but was wrapped in death clothes, and Jesus commanded that they be taken off which is a mirror image of somebody putting their life in Christ and still being wrapped up in stuff which Jesus tells us now to remove.
When God shows us we are destitute before Him we are blessed, but this is only a start. Jesus tells us we are blessed when our sin bothers us enough to change and we experience the joy of complete forgiveness. Sin is awful but God’s forgiveness in Jesus is too wonderful for words.
This series delves into perhaps Jesus’ most famous sermon – the Sermon on the Mount. It is all about a totally different way of living that only God can work in our hearts. First step is to realise the blessing of being destitute before God.
