sermon notes highlight

The turning point of your life is not to ask how, why and what. Our turning point is to ask who changed me?

John 9:4We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. 5As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

– When I am with you – it is day. Pay attention and soon night is coming when I will leave you. This is your biggest opportunity. Your moment is now. Jesus reveals himself to mankind. Some seize the moment, some wait, some reject outright. This could be your turning point. And wait there is more clue that this is the turning point: I am the light of the world.”

– It is not the matter of healing but the message of healing.

– When it doesn’t make sense to us, we view as if it is not God. They could not explain therefore they refuse to believe in it.

I THINK THE THINKING  “I KNOW” IS ONE OF THE GREATEST REASON PEOPLE NEVER EXPERIENCE A TURNING POINT. THEY ALREADY KNOW BUT THEY REALLY DON’T BECAUSE THEY HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED IT.

We have made a mental image of who God is and created a Jesus that is based on our experiences that we never get to encounter Him because of our biases.

Are you willing to have your life altered even to the point of being a social outcast or a fool for Jesus because of the undeniable fact that Jesus has changed you? Are you willing to give up everything for this faith?

He experienced the undeniable though he cannot explain it yet. There was no need for an explanation for the unexplainable just an acknowledgment of the undeniable. He heard and believed. God revealed.

The turning point of your life is not to ask how, why and what. Our turning point is to ask who changed me?

When I focus on the missing pieces then I doubt and I miss the turning point. When God responds in ways I cannot explain – I start to doubt. In a lot of ways I am like Peter walking on water. I try to find an explanation for this supernatural thing happening to me and start looking at the waves instead of focusing on the undeniable that I am really walking on water.

What else is undeniable is that there is something in us that cannot be satisfied apart from a relationship with Christ.

39Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.” 40Some of the Pharisees near him heard these things, and said to him, “Are we also blind?” 41Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no guilt; but now that you say, ‘We see,’ your guilt remains.
