Reply to the Invitation from God

Notes: Reply to the Invitation

A lot of people’s understanding of Christianity is a misunderstanding.

What is Christianity?

To understand it, consider it like an invitation. Many think it’s a demand but it’s really like an RSVP. You are being offered to do something by a certain date. You must reply while you are still alive.

It’s very important to reply to the invitation:
1. Who’s it from?
John 3:16 NLT
[16] "For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

It’s an invite from God. Who is God? Has God spoken? Has God revealed himself?

God’s greatest display was in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the King of kings.

2. Who’s been invited?

“...so loved the world”

What is Christianity about: 
1. Forgiveness from the past. 

The heart of the human problem, is the problem of the human heart.

Out of the disease of the human heart is the problems of the world, the Bible calls it sin. 

Sin disconnects us from God.  Jesus reconnected us to God. It cleared us of our sins.

Are Christians brain washed? Jesus washed our brain!

2. Jesus gives hope of a new life.

To be a Christian is to be connected to Christ.

If you were in your car with Jesus, where is he in your car? Is He hidden the trunk, you let Him out at church happy hour. Is He a passenger or is He in the drivers seat? If He’s driving, are you a backseat driver!?

How do you know He’s in the driving seat.

Is Jesus F.I.R.S.T. in your life?

Finance
Interest
Relationship 
Schedule 
Troubles

If your lacking the fruits of Jesus in your life, you maybe lacking something. You may need to reposition Him into the driving seat.

3. Jesus gives us hope for the future.

“... so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Most people’s hope is a lot like a hospital gown, your usually not as well covered as you think you are.

What have you done with your invitation?
