Bible Text: Luke 14:15-26 |


The excuse of not being fit for the job (Jeremiah 1:1-17) False pretense of humility The task is hard The time isn't right The topic is dangerous Excuses to keep you in failure Procrastination (Proverbs 6:3-9) Irritation (Proverbs 20:4) Exaggeration (Proverbs 22:13;26:13) Exhaustion (Proverbs 24:10) Frustration (Proverbs 24:16) Depression (Proverbs 24:19-22) We are going to start in Luke chapter 14, and then we will be moving to the Old Testament, continuing our thoughts from last week.

Bible Text: Luke 14:16-26 |


Two Excuses used in the Old Testament The Excuse in Worshiping the one true God (Exodus 32:1-4) It's the people's fault If you have your Bibles this evening, we are starting in Luke chapter 14, then we are going to be in the Old Testament the rest of the time. Luke chapter 14, and hopefully you will understand where I am going after we read some of the passages. There was a man that was carrying two buckets and in the buckets were piles of fish.

Bible Text: Luke 22:24-25;31-32 |


Satan's Desires The Destruction of Souls Cause the Saint to Fail Peter's Conversion to convert or come again Repent of Pride Repent of Betrayal Christ's Intercessory Prayer It's Personal It's Present Tense It's Specific   All right. Two passages tonight, Luke chapter 22 and that will be kind of our text passage, but we are also going to reference Ephesians 6. We will start at Ephesians 6 and then go to Luke chapter 22, because we are looking at the prayer life of Christ. And in Luke 22 is a prayer, it is a very important one, but I think something that kind of is a good intro is Ephesians 6.

Teach Us to Pray “Christ’s praying fired the disciples with desire to pray like Him. Do our prayers move anyone to taste the devotion and joy which breathe through them?” (Alexander Maclaren) The plan for prayer Should be something that is done often and early.  The average Christian runs to prayer when they are in a critical state.  Prayer should be planned and purposeful in a Christian’s life.. Have a plan for your prayer life The ACTS plan Adoration Confession Thanksgiving Supplication The Model Payer plan Adoration God's will Confession Surrender of personal will Have purpose in your prayer life Have a place for your prayer life (habits) The person of prayer The person for help in

Bible Text: Luke 5:1-11 |


Necessities for launching out into the deep A total surrender towards God A thorough submissiveness to God A timeless scope Psalm 34: 8-10 "O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing." There is a story and I think this is good illustration, a good opener, but there was a little boy, he went to the store with his mother
