Family Is The Long Game

 

 

 

 

 

Jason focuses on the power of an encounter with God’s love and the impact thankfulness has on our lives. The message was taken from Luke 17:11-19

 “Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

In Oct Jason visited with his good friend Scott Crowder and DreamHouse Church in Newport News VA. This church family has become a home away from home and this was his 7th visit in 9 years.

On this Sunday Scott asked if he would speak on a particular scripture from that week’s Lectionary, the 2019 liturgical calendar, which DreamHouse has been following this year.

Luke 17:11-19 was read before Jason got up to speak.

SURE IN LOVE

SURE IN LOVE

Our Heavenly Father is always good and doesn’t desire desperate kids. Any relationship where kids are desperate for their Father is dysfunctional. Jesus revealed what it looks like to live sure as a loved son of our Father and gave us access to this same sureness.

I CALL YOU FRIENDS

I CALL YOU FRIENDS

“I no longer call you servant, I call you friend.” This is the invitation Jesus gave us. There is no servant master language in heaven. Obedience is the invitation to discover God’s heart until ours beats in rhythm with His.

Introducing Children to the Father

I prayed. “Father, come make your love known.” Immediately our Father, Ethan’s and mine, filled the room with His love. It’s hard to explain but let me try. For the next ten minutes, while I lay there and held Ethan, my body trembled with God’s presence. I literally shook with His love.

What You Believe About God

When we see our Father and become sure in His love, all impossibilities become possibilities—it’s called heaven on earth.

RELATIONSHIP IS WAY BETTER THAN RULES

God is Good, Not Just Nice

His goodness is rooted in Himself not just in His behavior towards us.

Dream Like An Old Man: Part Four, Heaven On Earth

A true dream, one that is birthed in the heart of “old men dreamers,” carries with it authority and power. Only a person who has experienced the death of vision, who has nailed vision to the cross, has access to the power of resurrection. When he dreams again, he dreams the dreams of heaven. And a dream that’s birthed in heaven has power to transform earth, it can change a family, a neighborhood, a city, a nation, it grows exponentially and has eternal significance.
