LIMITS ON A LIMITLESS GOD

Why don’t we see more miracles?

I want to cry.

All the cancer.
All the issues with our children.
All the hate.
All the racism.
All the discrimination.
All the fear.
All the gossip.
All the anger.
All the unforgiveness.
All the violence.
All the divorce.

All the evil.

All in the church.

Why do we have these problems?

Is God’s are too short that He can’t reach us? That He can’t save us!?

NO. NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT.

The problem is our faith.

Our lack of faith.

We pray.

But for how long?

We believe the promises of the bible.

But for how long?

Do we only believe when things are going well?

Do we only believe when we see progress?

Do we only believe in Sunday morning?

What about the other six days of the week?

We believe on Christmas and Easter.

What about the other 363 days of the year?

How do you limit a limitless God?

You fail to recognize His all-consuming power.

And that power is available to YOU.

The scripture says Jesus could NOT WORK MIGHTY MIRACLES only on one place.

His hometown.

Everywhere else he healed people.
He cast out demons.
He raised people from the dead.

But in his hometown he was restricted.

Why?

Because of their unbelief.

They were too familiar with Jesus.

They’d spent so much time with him they couldn’t see him for who he really was.

They were laws to him being around.

And he had been around for so long and they never saw him work miracles before.

I can hear them now saying:

“So why would he start doing miraculous things now?”

“Why should we believe the Jesus we’ve heard about all these years can do the impossible?”

“He had never done miracles before.”

“Certainly what we’ve heard about him isn’t really true.”

“We know the real Jesus.”

“A good man. But not a miracle worker.”

“These are fables. They’re myths. They’re great stories. But we know Jesus. He can’t really do that stuff.”

And it’s not just them who said that.

We say that TODAY.

Church folk.

We say we believe.

But do we really?

Do we stick our necks out to proclaim someone’s healing? Do we pray without quitting?

Jesus could not do mighty works only among people who were familiar with him before he started doing mighty works.

Let not that be said about us.

We believe Lord.

We trust you Lord.

We need you Lord.

We cry out to you Lord.

We thirst for you Lord.

Come Lord.

Save us!!!

Heal us!

Deliver us!

Restore us!

The church of Jesus Christ believes in Jesus Christ.

The bride of Christ cries, “Come!”

The bride of Christ desires the presence of Christ.

If you can’t believe your spouse, nothing they claim they can do will resonate with you.

Hey make promises to help you heal from the past.

But you can’t believe it.

They make promises to change things.

But you want proof.

They say they’ll never let it happen again.

But you think that’s just who they are.

You won’t give them a chance.

Often this lack of faith is connected to hurt and disappointment.

Don’t let your past disappointments cause you to give up on Jesus.

He can do anything!

He will do what he says he will do.

Just believe.

God bless you.

Text: Mark 6:4-6

But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 

And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. 

And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

LOVE ‘EM LIKE JESUS!

I’m beginning to realize how prime we are to do what’s easy as opposed to what’s powerful.

Let me tell you point blank:

POWERFUL IS NOT EASY!

Jesus tells an interesting story about the end of days in Matthew 25.

He says when the saved folks are separated from those who are not saved, He will say something quite shocking to BELIEVERS.

It is at that critical moment – both joyous and terrifying – that Jesus will tell BELIEVERS how they let Him down.

How?

Jesus will say every time we failed to do our best for others it was like we we were withholding our best from Him!

Matthew 25:42-43

“For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. ”

Every time we have the ability to bless but:

-We don’t feed the hungry

-We don’t visit the sick

-We don’t visit the prisoner

-We don’t clothe the needy

-We don’t take in the stranger

It’s like we’re doing it to Christ.

So here is a radical idea.

WE SHOULD NEVER TREAT ANY ONE ELSE ANY DIFFERENT THAN WE WOULD TREAT CHRIST!

We are all God’s children.

He loves us all the same.

And He calls us to love one another.

I believe this kind of radical love is the stuff revivals are made of.

Revolution needs your love.

And you have plenty of love to give.
