    Family Feud – 3 Unchanging Rules For Families

    Family Feud – 3 Unchanging Rules For Families

    Mark 10:13-16 // 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.


    1. Our homes should be high touch.

    Mark 6:56 // And wherever he went – into villages, towns or countryside – they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them  touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.


    2. Our families need time.

    How do kids spell love? T-I-M-E.



    Mark 10:13 // People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them.


    3. Our words should give blessing and encouragement.

    Mark 10:16 // And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.
    Mark 1:9-11 // 9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

    Family Feud – A Vision For Your Family

    Family Feud – A Vision For Your Family

    Family Feud – A Vision For Your Family – Pastor Jason Burns


    What does love require of me?


    Having a vision for your family starts with inheritance.

    Proverbs 13:22 NIV // A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.
    3 areas we can leave an inheritance:


    Financial Inheritance
    Honorable Name Inheritance
    Spiritual Inheritance

    Psalm 138:8 NLT // The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.


    The goal: My children will fulfill God’s will and purpose for their lives.

    1 Samuel 1:1-18 NIV //
    There was a certain man from Ramathaim, a Zuphite from the hill country of Ephraim, whose name was Elkanah son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephraimite. He had two wives; one was called Hannah and the other Peninnah. Peninnah had children, but Hannah had none.
    Year after year this man went up from his town to worship and sacrifice to the Lord Almighty at Shiloh, where Hophni and Phinehas, the two sons of Eli, were priests of the Lord. Whenever the day came for Elkanah to sacrifice, he would give portions of the meat to his wife Peninnah and to all her sons and daughters. But to Hannah he gave a double portion because he loved her, and the Lord had closed her womb. Because the Lord had closed Hannah’s womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the Lord, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat. Her husband Elkanah would say to her, “Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don’t you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?”
    Once when they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh, Hannah stood up. Now Eli the priest was sitting on his chair by the doorpost of the Lord’s house. In her deep anguish Hannah prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly. And she made a vow, saying, “Lord Almighty, if you will only look on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.”
    As she kept on praying to the Lord, Eli observed her mouth. Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk and said to her, “How long are you going to stay drunk? Put away your wine.”
    “Not so, my lord,” Hannah replied, “I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the Lord. Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.”
    Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.” She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.
    Pray these promises over your children:
    Psalm 138:8 // That my children will fulfill God’s will and purpose for their lives.
    Isaiah 54:13 // That my child will be “taught of the Lord” and great will be their peace.
    Psalm 119:11 // That my child will hide God’s Word in their hearts.
    Colossians 1:9 // That God will fill my child with the knowledge of His will so that they can walk in a way that’s pleasing to Him and that their life will bear fruit.
    Ephesians 1:17-19 // I pray that my child heart will be flooded with light so that they can understand the wonderful future God has promised to those He calls.
    Proverbs 3:5-6 // That my child will trust in the Lord with all their hearts and not lean on their own understanding.
    Philippians 4:6-9 // That my child will not worry or be afraid but that they will pray about everything, and that the peace

    Family Feud – How To Love Well

    Family Feud – How To Love Well

    What does love require of me?

    Mark 12:28-31 NIV // One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
    “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
    Luke 10:29-37 NIV // But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
    In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
    “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
    Who is my neighbor?


    Passed by
    Took pity
    Had mercy

    Ways to Love Well:


    Love them where they are.
    Love them consistently.
    Love them, even if it costs me something.


    True love is going to require a sacrifice.

    New Normal – Heart and Soul

    New Normal – Heart and Soul

    Hebrews 10:25 NLT // And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
    “Isolation is the modern day leprosy.” – Mother Teresa
    1 Samuel 14:1,4-15 NLT //
    1 One day Jonathan said to his armor bearer, “Come on, let’s go over to where the Philistines have their outpost.” But Jonathan did not tell his father what he was doing.
    4 To reach the Philistine outpost, Jonathan had to go down between two rocky cliffs that were called Bozez and Seneh. 5 The cliff on the north was in front of Micmash, and the one on the south was in front of Geba. 6 “Let’s go across to the outpost of those pagans,” Jonathan said to his armor bearer. “Perhaps the Lord will help us, for nothing can hinder the Lord. He can win a battle whether he has many warriors or only a few!”
    7 “Do what you think is best,” the armor bearer replied. “I’m with you completely, whatever you decide.” 8 “All right, then,” Jonathan told him. “We will cross over and let them see us. 9 If they say to us, ‘Stay where you are or we’ll kill you,’ then we will stop and not go up to them. 10 But if they say, ‘Come on up and fight,’ then we will go up. That will be the Lord’s sign that he will help us defeat them.”
    11 When the Philistines saw them coming, they shouted, “Look! The Hebrews are crawling out of their holes!” 12 Then the men from the outpost shouted to Jonathan, “Come on up here, and we’ll teach you a lesson!” “Come on, climb right behind me,” Jonathan said to his armor bearer, “for the Lord will help us defeat them!”
    13 So they climbed up using both hands and feet, and the Philistines fell before Jonathan, and his armor bearer killed those who came behind them. 14 They killed some twenty men in all, and their bodies were scattered over about half an acre. 15 Suddenly, panic broke out in the Philistine army, both in the camp and in the field, including even the outposts and raiding parties. And just then an earthquake struck, and everyone was terrified.


    Godly inspiration requires collaboration which cannot happen in isolation.

    5 Characteristics of Godly Friends:


    Challenge your mentality
    Stretch you spiritually

    Hebrews 11:1 NIV // Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for and the assurance about what we do not see.


    Support you wholeheartedly
    Help you think strategically

    Proverbs 21:5 NLT // Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.


    Propel you supernaturally

    New Normal – Wholeness

    New Normal – Wholeness

    New Normal – The current state of being after some dramatic change has transpired. What replaces the expected, usual, typical state after an event occurs. The new normal encourages one to deal with current situations rather than lamenting what could have been.
    Mark 5:25-34 // "And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, 'If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.' 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, 'Who touched my clothes?' 31 'You see the people crowding against you,' his disciples answered, 'and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’' 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, 'Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.'"


    God's desire for you is wholeness.

    Isaiah 26:3 NLT // "You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!"
    Romans 12:2 NLT // "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."


    Metamorphoo


    Perspective
    Actions
    Habits
    Character


    How you think determines who you become.

    Romans 12:2 MSG // "Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you."
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 MSG // "Wise thinking leads to right living; Stupid thinking leads to wrong living."

    New Normal – A New Identity

    New Normal – A New Identity

    John 20:19 // On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”

    Identity: the truest thing about you.
    The early & often factor.
    Identity determines behavior.

    Ephesians 2:1-3 // As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.

    Ephesians 2:4-5 // But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

    Ephesians 2:8-10 // For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

    Pressure to perform.
    Fear of failure.
    Constant comparison.
    Wrecked relationships.
    Fatigue and frustration.

    In Christ, you are:

    Chosen.
    Adopted.
    Redeemed.
    Marked.
    Purchased.
