Sermon Highlights, Sun. 2/24/08. 7:45. "I Have the Right to Use His Name"

Scriptural Texts: John 15:1-16, Phil 2:7-13

* Training is better than trying. Train wisely; you can live skillfully.

* I have the right to use His name (John 15:16).

* Jesus had to make choices as a human being; He obeyed His father perfectly in his death, his burial, and his resurrection.

* Q: Why didn't Jesus take care of Satan at Calvary? A: He was not acting on His own behalf.
Jesus became the ramification of sin. He died so I can live.

* Accept as our own what Jesus has done for us ... you've got to see YOU hanging on that cross and understand the wrath of God.

* REMEMBER: Greater is HE that is in you , than he who is in the world.

* Jesus had the right to give authority because He paid for it with His life and with His blood. (John 10:10, John 10:19)

* Luke 10:19 --> Don't rejoice because you're rebuking the devil, you can take glory for yourself. Rejoice because you have a relationship with God and your name is in the Book of Life.

* Obedience keeps the authority in tact.

* God was trying to keep Adam and Eve from the knowledge of evil . All you need to know is my [God's ] goodness.

* When you're disobedient, you become disconnected.

ABIDING means "I'll make my home in you."
  1. LOVE
  2. OBEDIENCE
  3. ABIDE
If you LOVE, you'll OBEY. If you're OBEYING, you have to be ABIDING.

* Jesus gave us authority to use the name His Daddy gave Him!
