Sermon Highlights: Mother's Day, 5/11/08, 7:45

Galations 3:1-29

(Continuing Principle of Equivalent Effect series, includes review.)

Abraham didn't just believe in God, he BELIEVED God ... big difference.

There are tremendous benefits in saying Yes to God.

Principle of Equivalent Effect:
Based on the unchanging nature of God.

(See 3 Benefits in 4/27 notes. Note from point #3, "Releases in us the potential of our seed" ... not just offspring, but vision.)

The weakest Christian is stronger than the staunchest muslim, jehovah's witness, or buddist.

The power of God is not released because you know a lot or because of your family tree, but because of your faith.

Christ is God's wisdom. If you need wisdom, ask God. Wisdom is the ability to see into the nature of a thing.

The richest resources of every nation is the next generation. The neglect of that generation is abuse of our future. The power of change is in the presnet. God always goes after the see with the fruit. In every seed, there's not just an oak tree, there's a forest of trees.

Protect the promise of God in your life because the devil is after your seed.
God is a generational God whose promise to a specific man or woman is often to be fulfilled in their succeeding generation.

Psalm 112:1-3 (v. 2, the generation of the upright shall be blessed.) He wants us to protect the way.
You don't need to wear a cross around your neck, you just need to live skillfully.
