Up (Our Father)

A Family on Mission - Up (Our Father)

Dave Riddle - 06/16/19

Key Passage: Acts 13:22

The most important thing

  • Mark 12:28-30

Captured by the concept of worship

  • Romans 12:1

A rhythmic response to God’s self-revelation

  • 1 John 4:19 - “we love because He first loved us...”

A matter of our hearts

  • Mark 7:6

—-—-—-

David

  • 1 Samuel 16:7

    • “...the Lord looks at the heart”

  • Acts 12:22

    • “...a man after my own heart”

    • We are called to align our hearts with God’s heart.

Allow God to be first

  • Philippians 3:7-14

  • Make God the object and pursuit of your life.

Rely on God’s power

  • 1 Samuel 17

  • Romans 8:11 - the same power that raised Jesus from the dead now lives in you!

Rest in His authority

Live in full transparency

  • Psalm 139 - you have searched me and know me.

Two Outcomes

  1. We are loved

    • The creator of the universe loves you!

    • 1 John 3:1 - his love is so great that we are called His children!

  2. Called to live in obedience!

    • John 14:15 - if we love God we will desire to keep His commands.
