SERIES: Love Ran Red - “Ain’t Nobody Like Him”
SPEAKER: Pastor Tim Payne
SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 13:8 NL
THE LAUNCHING POINT: Have you ever changed your mind?
MAKING THE CONNECTION:
1. Pastor Tim shared from Hebrews 13:8 which says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He challenged us to give Him our yesterdays. Jesus is the Lord of your yesterday.
Can you think of one thing that you need to leave in your yesterday and let Jesus have it? Share with the group.
2. "I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead." Philippians 3:13 NLT
These were several people in the Bible that God used that had "a yesterday".
- Adam and Eve had a yesterday
- Noah had a yesterday
- Moses had a yesterday
- Rahab had a yesterday
- Sampson had a yesterday
- David had a yesterday
- Jonah had a yesterday
- Zacheus had a yesterday
- The woman at the well had a yesterday
- Peter had a yesterday
- Paul had a yesterday
As you read through these names, how does this encourage you to move forward from your yesterday?
- Do you think these people had the same struggles as we do today? Discuss
3. Enoch lived 365 years, walking in close fellowship with God. Then one day he disappeared because God took him. Genesis 5:23 NLT
Discuss how can we avoid making the same mistakes over and over?
Share what steps can we take to walk with Him today?
4. Jesus is divine! He embodied every qualification of deity!
Omniscience - ALL Knowing
Omnipresence - Present everywhere
Omnipotent - ALL Powerful
Eternality - Existed forever
Immutability - The SAME; from age to age, He remains the same.
- How does this encourage you personally that everything around you may change but the Lord will constantly be the same?
