    Holy Competitiveness: Week 3

    Holy Competitiveness: Week 3

    Philippians 2:3–11
    Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. 
    5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 
    6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 
    7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 
    8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! 
    9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 
    10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 
    11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
     
    Holy Competitiveness is going through valleys so that others can stand on mountains.
     
    Genesis 50:15–21 
    When Joseph’s brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, “What if Joseph holds a grudge against us and pays us back for all the wrongs we did to him?” 
    16 So they sent word to Joseph, saying, “Your father left these instructions before he died: 17 ‘This is what you are to say to Joseph: I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.’ Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father.” When their message came to him, Joseph wept. 
    18 His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him. “We are your slaves,” they said.
    19 But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? 
     
    You can’t win with people if you put yourself in the place of God. 
     
    You can't win with people if you put others in the place of the enemy.
     
    20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. 
    21 So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them.
     
    You can win with people if you move from harm to harmony.

    Holy Competitiveness: Week 2

    Philippians 2:3–4 
    Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
     
    Genesis 39:6–20 
    So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate. 
    Now Joseph was well-built and handsome, 
    7 and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, “Come to bed with me!” 
    8 But he refused. “With me in charge,” he told her, “my master does not concern himself with anything in the house; everything he owns he has entrusted to my care. 
    9 No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” 
    10 And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even be with her. 
    11 One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside. 
    12 She caught him by his cloak and said, “Come to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house. 
    13 When she saw that he had left his cloak in her hand and had run out of the house, 
    14 she called her household servants. “Look,” she said to them, “this Hebrew has been brought to us to make sport of us! He came in here to sleep with me, but I screamed. 
    15 When he heard me scream for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.” 
    16 She kept his cloak beside her until his master came home. 
    17 Then she told him this story: “That Hebrew slave you brought us came to me to make sport of me. 
    18 But as soon as I screamed for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.” 
    19 When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, “This is how your slave treated me,” he burned with anger. 
    20 Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined.
     
    Holy Competitiveness is winning the interior battle before the exterior ones.
     
    Losing interior battles blows up the exterior of your life.
    Losing interior battles creates a lot of exterior conflict.



    To win the interior battle:
    Depend on God. See yourself as set apart by God. Ask yourself, “What is shaping and forming my interior life?” Ask yourself, “Who am I becoming by the habits that I’m doing?” Win one window at a time. The interior battle is all about becoming more like Jesus.

    Holy Competitiveness: Week 1

    Philippians 2:3–4
    Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
    Genesis 37:28
    So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt.
    Genesis 39:2a
    The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered . . .
    Holy Competitiveness is dependence not dominance.
    Dependence on God is your connection to pure purpose and power.

    Humble Confidence

    Humble Confidence

    2 Corinthians 12:7b-10
    Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 
    8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 
    9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.  
    10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
     
    Ephesians 2:4-10
    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. 
    6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 
    8 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.

    Ruth 4:13-17
    13 So Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife. When he made love to her, the Lord enabled her to conceive, and she gave birth to a son. 
    14 The women said to Naomi: “Praise be to the Lord, who this day has not left you without a guardian-redeemer. May he become famous throughout Israel! 
    15 He will renew your life and sustain you in your old age. For your daughter-in-law, who loves you and who is better to you than seven sons, has given him birth.”
    16 Then Naomi took the child in her arms and cared for him. 
    17 The women living there said, “Naomi has a son!” And they named him Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.

    What Can God Do Now?

    What Can God Do Now?

    Ruth 3
    1 One day Ruth’s mother-in-law Naomi said to her, “My daughter, I must find a home for you, where you will be well provided for.
    2 Now Boaz, with whose women you have worked, is a relative of ours. Tonight he will be winnowing barley on the threshing floor.
    3 Wash, put on perfume, and get dressed in your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don’t let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking.
    4 When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do.”
    5 “I will do whatever you say,” Ruth answered.
    6 So she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law told her to do.
    7 When Boaz had finished eating and drinking and was in good spirits, he went over to lie down at the far end of the grain pile. Ruth approached quietly, uncovered his feet and lay down.
    8 In the middle of the night something startled the man; he turned—and there was a woman lying at his feet!
    9 “Who are you?” he asked. “I am your servant Ruth,” she said. “Spread the corner of your garment over me, since you are a guardian-redeemer of our family.”
    10 “The LORD bless you, my daughter,” he replied. “This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor.
    11 And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All the people of my town know that you are a woman of noble character.
    12 Although it is true that I am a guardian-redeemer of our family, there is another who is more closely related than I.
    13 Stay here for the night, and in the morning if he wants to do his duty as your guardian-redeemer, good; let him redeem you. But if he is not willing, as surely as the LORD lives I will do it. Lie here until morning.”
    14 So she lay at his feet until morning, but got up before anyone could be recognized; and he said, “No one must know that a woman came to the threshing floor.”
    15 He also said, “Bring me the shawl you are wearing and hold it out.” When she did so, he poured into it six measures of barley and placed the bundle on her. Then he went back to town.
    16 When Ruth came to her mother-in-law, Naomi asked, “How did it go, my daughter?” Then she told her everything Boaz had done for her
    17 and added, “He gave me these six measures of barley, saying, ‘Don’t go back to your mother-in-law empty-handed.’ ”
    18 Then Naomi said, “Wait, my daughter, until you find out what happens. For the man will not rest until the matter is settled today.”
     
    Ruth 4:1-11
    1 Meanwhile Boaz went up to the town gate and sat down there just as the guardian-redeemer he had mentioned came along. Boaz said, “Come over here, my friend, and sit down.” So he went over and sat down.
    2 Boaz took ten of the elders of the town and said, “Sit here,” and they did so.
    3 Then he said to the guardian-redeemer, “Naomi, who has come back from Moab, is selling the piece of land that belonged to our relative Elimelek.
    4 I thought I should bring the matter to your attention and suggest that you buy it in the presence of these seated here and in the presence of the elders of my people. If you will redeem it, do so. But if you will not, tell me, so I will know. For no one has the right to do it except you, and I am next in line.” “I will redeem it,” he said.
    5 Then Boaz said, “On the day you buy the land from Naomi, you also acquire Ruth the Moabite, the dead man’s widow, in order to maintain the name of the dead with his property.”
    6 At this, the guardian-redeemer said, “Then I cannot redeem it because I might endanger my own estate. You redeem it yourself. I cannot do it.”
    7 (Now in earlier times in Israel, for the redemption and transfer of property to become final, one party took off his sandal and gave it to the other. This was the method of legalizing transactions in Israel
