What if a relationship with Jesus came down to only four key principles? Guess what… It does.

In fact, these four principles are the basic Elements of the life you’ve always wanted to live!

FIRM FOUNDATION

PS MONTE | 9/3/2017

SERMON NOTES

(EPHESIANS 1:17-19, NIV) I keep asking that our LORD Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

FIRM FOUNDATION

What's the most important thing in my life?

Where does Jesus fit into my story?

(PSALM 119:105, NLT) Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

Let Jesus guide your steps

(PSALM 37:23, NLT) The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.

Let Jesus show you the right path

(PSALM 119:109, NLT) My life constantly hangs in the balance, but I will not stop obeying your instructions.

BUILDING ON A FIRM FOUNDATION

Be grounded on the WORD OF GOD

Two ways to build my life on the Word of GOD:

1. Read the Bible to get to know JESUS

2. Build relationships with Life-giving PEOPLE

NEXT Step:

Make a list of everything in your life that you trust in more than Jesus, then ask Him to give you the strength to let go of your list

REAL, RADICAL LIFE-CHANGE

PS MONTE | 9/10/2017

SERMON NOTES

(EPHESIANS 1:17-19, NIV) I keep asking that our LORD Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

WIND | REAL, RADICAL LIFE-CHANGE

If I could change one thing about myself, what would it be?

Have I ever thought about what Jesus would change about me?

(ROMANS 2:4, MSG) GOD is kind, but he’s not soft. In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.

(JOHN 10:10b, NKJV) "I have come that [you] may have life, and that [you] may have it more abundantly."

WINDS OF CHANGE

Allow GOD to CHANGE me

Two ways to discover who I am in Jesus:

1. Ask the Holy Spirit to SHOW ME

2. Invite the Holy Spirit to FILL ME

NEXT Step:

Ask Jesus to show me the areas of my life that He wants to change,

then surrender them completely to Him

POTENTIAL

SERMON NOTES

(EPHESIANS 1:17-19, NIV) I keep asking that our LORD Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

DISCOVERING POTENTIAL

How big are my dreams?

Do I know what I'm truly capable of?

(GENESIS 1:1-3a, NLT) In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of GOD was hovering over the surface of the waters.

Then GOD said...

I may not think I can accomplish my dreams... but GOD sees my potential!

(PHILIPPIANS 4:13, NKJV) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

ACTIVATING MY POTENTIAL

Allow GOD to ACTIVATE my POTENTIAL

Two ways to activate my potential:

Allow Jesus to EQUIP me

Look for OPPORTUNITIES to use my gifts

NEXT Step:

Make a list of every ability I've never developed or dream I've never seen fulfilled, then ask Jesus to give me the opportunity to use them to for His Kingdom

EMPOWERMENT

FIRE | EMPOWERMENT

How do I react when my life falls apart?

Jesus knows what I’m going to face before I ever get there

(ACTS 1:4-5, NLT) [Jesus] commanded them, Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before. John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.

DO LIFE EMPOWERED

(MATTHEW 3:11, NLT) I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to GOD. But someone is coming soon who is greater than I am… He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

• Allow Jesus to BAPTIZE me with the HOLY SPIRIT

Three ways to live an empowered life:

1. Surrender myself to EVERYTHING Jesus has for me

2. Join with OTHER BELIEVERS to share Jesus

3. Enjoy the JOURNEY

NEXT Step:

Write an experience you’ve had where you didn’t have the strength to stand, then surrender that situation to Jesus so that He can heal you, and ask Him to baptize you with His Spirit so that you can receive the Comforter
