Let’s Change

By April 26, 2012 Sermon Notes

John 6:53-58

53 So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56 Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread[a] the fathers ate, and died. Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.”English Standard Version (ESV)

TheWord is why I live!!

How can I breathe with no air?
I’m gasping for air but can’t seem to take a breath.
Oxygen is all around me but I can’t find the strength to open my mouth and inhale
I know I need it.   I know I want it, but something feels good about being out of breath.
If my supply was ever to run low, I usually panic, but really all I have to do is open up and access this abundance of air.
Maybe I’d rather die.   Maybe I’d rather lie and say there was nothing I could do.
The truth is, the only way that I cannot breathe is if there were no air.
There is so much air around me. The air is over flowing.God, Your air is so amazing that all I have to do is open up. But do I deserve it?

I’ve run myself into the ground and now I feel like I have to build myself back up.

 

•I need to let your air consume me and just breathe.
When I breathe I feel loved.   When I breathe I feel free.

† God Says †

Open your mouth my son. Do you want to die out here? Look dog, it’s on you but it’s your choice. If you don’t depend on me and breathe, you are committing suicide. It’s not because I didn’t make a way for you that you die, it’s because you don’t receive my provision.

Seems like every time you get tired you forget the basics! This can take your life man.

Are you ready to fight? You look stupid out here hyperventilating, you should be in shape this far along in the season. I’m go put someone else in your spot until you can learn the plays. From now on you have to earn your spot! How do you like that?

1 Corinthians 11:24-26
24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for[a] you. Do this in remembrance of me.”[b] 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.English Standard Version (ESV)

I remember
I endure in remembrance of YOU!! ²I overcome in remembrance of YOU!!²

I livein remembrance of YOU!!²I’m changing in remembrance of YOU!!

I’m bold . . . in remembrance of YOU!!
