Sunday (29nd April 2012)

This morning we had the privilege to listen to of our associate pastors on the topic with greater measure of faith. She entitled her message as "Small Faith, Great Exploit" (Matthew 17:20)

"Little faith will bring your soul to heaven, but great faith will bring heaven to your soul - Author Unknown"
(Matthew 13:31-32)

1) Move against the odds
(Matthew 14:17-19) (Hebrew 11:6) (Psalms 119:105-107) (James 1:6-8)

2) Move in obedience towards His leading
(Deuteronomy 6:3b) (Genesis 12:1)
"When we move in the natural we look at the majority but when we move in the supernatural we look at God"

3) Move from defeat victory is when God lift us up beyond our capability.
(1 John 5:4-5)

Obedience is seeking God with your whole heart. 
Performance is having a quiet time because you’ll feel guilty if you don’t.

Obedience is finding ways to let the Word of God dwell in you richly. 
Performance is quickly scanning a passage so you can check it off your Bible reading plan.

Obedience is inviting guests to your home for dinner. 
Performance is feeling anxiety about whether every detail of the meal will be perfect.

Obedience is following God’s prompting to start a small group. 
Performance is reluctance to let anyone else lead the group because they might not do it as well as you would.

Obedience is saying yes to whatever God asks of you. 
Performance is saying yes to whatever people ask of you.

Obedience is following the promptings of God’s Spirit. 
Performance is following a list of man-made requirements.

Obedience springs from fear of God. 
Performance springs from fear of failure.
