SERVICE WITH A SMILE

PS MONTE | 5/14/2017

SERMON NOTES

(Psalm 119:165, ESV) Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.

Tension:

I'm saved because Jesus loves me vs I've been saved to benefit others

SERVICE WITH A SMILE

(Galatians 5:13, NLT) For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

• My HUMAN NATURE convinces me to be SELF-SERVING, always pushing my own AGENDA

Take-Away:

The best way to express my FAITH in Jesus is to SHOW LOVE to someone else

APPLICATION

• Stop living for my own AGENDA

Three ways to love people everyday:

1. LISTEN to their story, so that I'll KNOW them

2. SHARE my story with them to ENCOURAGE them

3. INVEST myself into their life for their BENEFIT

NEXT Step:

When life slices me this week, go out of my way to LOVE someone else

LIVING INSIDE-OUT

PS MONTE | 5/21/2017

SERMON NOTES

(Psalm 119:165, ESV) Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.

LIVING INSIDE-OUT

• I don’t win the battle in our nature by changing my BEHAVIOR, I win by being SPIRIT-LED

(Galatians 5:16, NLT) So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.

• The more I bring my own desires into SUBJECTION to His desire for me, the more of His FRUIT I discover in my life

APPLICATION

• Stop living to satisfy my DESIRES

Don’t allow my struggle to separate me from Jesus…

DISCOVER His Purpose for my life and allow His Spirit to lead me

NEVER SETTLE

Surrender my dreams to Jesus, and watch how He makes them greater

than I ever could have on my own

Three ways to never settle:

1. REFUSE to settle for my LIMITED perspective

2. SURRENDER my desires to Jesus, and ask Him to replace them with His DESIRE for me

3. Put Jesus FIRST in every part of my LIFE

NEXT Step:

When life slices me this week, ask Jesus to show me His PURPOSE for my life

SLICED TO SERVE

PS MONTE | 5/28/2017

SERMON NOTES

(Psalm 119:165, ESV) Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.

Tension:

Salvation is about me vs I’m saved for a greater purpose

SLICED TO SERVE

(Galatians 5:24, NLT) Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.

• I don’t belong to MYSELF,

I’ve been purchased by His SACRIFICE and set free by His RESURRECTION

APPLICATION

• Stop living to satisfy MYSELF

Don’t allow your lusts to focus your attention on yourself… focus on others, and SERVE them to make a difference in their life

(Proverbs 19:17, NKJV) He who has pity on the [needy] lends to the LORD, And He will pay back what [has been] given.

HAVE FUN - Life is filled with good times and bad times, so make the choice to enjoy your journey, and look for opportunities to brighten someone else’s life

Three ways to have fun serving others:

1. Put THEIR NEEDS before my own

2. SERVE THEM out of the OVERFLOW of my relationship with Jesus, not out of OBLIGATION

3. Offer my service as WORSHIP to Jesus, not as an opportunity to be NOTICED by others

NEXT Step:

When life slices me this week, use my story to HEAL one else
