Sermon Notes- Rollie Snyder
The Words from the FATHER spoken over Jesus at his Baptism:
Matt 3:17 The Passion Translation: Then suddenly the voice of the Father shouted from the sky, saying, “This is the Son I love, and my greatest delight is in him.”[f]
Isaiah 42: 1 “Take a good look at my servant![a] I love him dearly,[b] for he is my chosen one. I have taken hold of him in my strength,[c] and I have clothed him with my Spirit.[d] He will cause justice to spring up for the nations.
John 1:12 TPT
But those who embraced him and took hold of his name[a] were given authority to become the children of God! To “lay hold of his name” means to believe all that he represents and put into practice what he taught in the power of his name.
The Spirit of Sonship:
Luke 4: Jesus - "full of the spirit" - went into the synagogue - his "mission statement" from Isaiah 61: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free
The GREAT NEWS: WE get to do these things!
Colossians 1:27: To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:27 TPT Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it!
BUT… We have been robbed!
BUT . . .
Ephesians 6:12 NIV For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
The Room of GOOD INTENTIONS:
Pleasing God to be Accepted and loved by God
The Room of GRACE:
Living in my BELOVEDNESS
