I'll Give You Something To Cry About (30 of 68)
Series: 30 A.D. The Jesus Story
Pastor Chris Brown
Luke 12:1-12

One More Warning About Religion:
Luke 12:1-3



The true measure of our Christianity is who we are when no one is watching.

Something To Fear Besides Fear Itself:
Luke 12:4-12, Matthew 12:31-32, Mark 3:28-29
Fear of God: Jeremiah 1:1-19, Hebrews 12:7-11, 18-24, 28-29, Romans 8:38-39, Hebrews 13:5,
1 John 4:17-18, Romans 14:11, Hebrews 10:23-39, Deuteronomy 5:28-29, 10:12-17, Psalm 36:1, Psalm 27, 73, 112, Proverbs 2:1-5, Ecclesiastes 12:13, Jeremiah 5:22-24, Isaiah 8:12-13,
Job 23:13-16, Acts 5:1-11, 9:31, 2 Corinthians 5:11, Philippians 2:12-15, Revelation 4

We fear God's:

- Position

- Power

We fear a God who is:

- Loving

- Rewarding

- Forgiving

- Faithful

Two Questions To Consider:

1. Where is my fear of God, compared to my love for God?

2. Is the aim of my Christianity to give, or to get?

It's incredible to think that we are God's "Plan A" to spread the Good News about him. Along with that big assignment, we also have big resources to help us out. God's presence and power are available to each of us through the Holy Spirit. We are simply asked to pray for open doors, contagious faith and clear communication. Take a few minutes and look back at Colossians 4:2-6 and use it as a prayer guide for the Weekend of Service.
