Pastor Tim Spark. I’m honoured to be here with you at King’s Church with pastor Ben and Trish. And I became a Christian in 2001 My first year at high school. And one Sunday morning, I didn’t feel the best and didn’t think my life was going in a good direction. And so one morning I woke up and put on my best clothes and I thought I’m going to go see that chaplain at that school. He seems to be happy all the time and so, I got up and put my best clothes on which was a Manchester United jersey. Because there are two kinds of people in the world. Manchester United supporters and those who want to be Manchester United supporters. So, I put that shirt on, went to church, and the preacher preached and I was at the back and he’s at the very end.
Hey, if you need Jesus, if you’re anxious, depressed, all that. Come out the front say yes and so there was that fight between my heart and the head and my head overpowered my heart and said, you need to go out there and so off I went and Pastor Ben was at the altar and prayed over me and just all this stuff was lifted and I just remember, I’m on the alter and just crying. God doing amazing thing in my life and the church was emptying. People gone. I was the last person there and turned around and Ben was walking out and I said, so what do I do now?
And he said, you’re on your own. No, I didn’t say that. He said, now, you pray. I said, well, how do I do that? And he said, meet me every Tuesday at 3:30 PM and I’m going to teach you how to pray and that’s the beginning of my discipleship and so I owe a lot to this couple. So, can we give it up for great disciple makers? I always loved going to Ben and Trisha’s home as a young adult. So I got saved at 17 and always going to their house for just pastoral care, advice, leadership advice, and it was good. Ben was a really good pastor. Really nice.
And you know we’d get around you and pray for you and everything. But I didn’t go for Ben. I went for Trish. Because Trish would after Ben would leave. Trish would go okay now. Here’s how you stop being an idiot. Alright? And she would then okay Trish thank you so much and so love Pastor Tricia. So my wife Kat and I we owe a lot to them. Kat was in the youth ministry as well. And so we met each other in the youth group. And it was good.
And I remember one night Pastor Ben was prophesying all of our leaders. And you know prophesying to everyone and he got the cat and prophesied over Kat and he had this word that you know you’re going to have good-looking children. And it was there that the Lord spoke to me that I need to marry her. And So, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, right? My kids would come out losing hair at three and so like, you know, I need good-looking kids. So, married her and we have a good marriage, don’t we? Yes. Very, yeah, it is. There it is, right?
Always ask your wife if your marriage is good and so yeah, we have a lot to be thankful for Ben and Trish and it’s honoured to be preaching in this church which is a great church of heritage and in fact, just while getting ready this morning, praying over you and for you and getting ready for today. I felt the Lord lead me to Psalm one 45 verse four and it says this:
Psalm 145:4 NKJV
One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts.
I just want to share that thought before we unpack the word this morning.
That you have a great heritage. And your past is littered with success. But I feel that you’re coming into a time of new heritage. And you’re going to take what was built and you’re going to stand on that foundation, and you’re going to go again. And let me say this, it is what you build today that will determine or define you but it’s what the next generation stands upon. And I want to say that right now, you are moving into a season where the Lord is going to cause you to build new things. And it’s not going to be particularly for you. It’s going to be for the next to come. It’s going to be for the generation to come. And so I implore you this morning. Get behind what God is doing here. Get behind it right? It’s not what you build but it’s what you put into process. Right? It’s what you put in motion today.
And I believe that word is for you that the next generation’s going to talk about you and what you do. Is that for this church if someone believes that? Come on let’s just praise God this morning. And so as Pastor Ben said we lead a great church in Ipswich. A beautiful city, great town called Central Church. It’s an amazing place to be a part of and we have three beautiful, good-looking kids. Praise the Lord. Our life in a nutshell. The church doesn’t happen randomly. Influence doesn’t come randomly. It’s the same in your life, right? A life of influence doesn’t happen randomly.
Random circumstances don’t define you but most of the time, it’s methodical action. It’s things that you put in place that will determine what your tomorrow is. In fact, where you are right now isn’t because of chance is because of things that you’ve done for years. Right now, you’re living and what you’ve chosen to do. Most of the a church of influence doesn’t randomly happen but it happens by methodical action.
Adam and Eve weren’t randomly expelled from the garden. Who knows that there was a method of disobedience, right? Joseph wasn’t randomly thrown into a pit. Who knows that someone had to go through the method of digging a hole, right? David doesn’t randomly slay the giant. Who knows that there was a method of skill, right? Frodo and Sam don’t randomly go into Mount Doom and throw in the one ring that rules them all. Who knows there was a method of journey. Yes. Tony Stark doesn’t randomly find himself in an Ironman-type suit. Who knows that there was a method of creativity, right? Anakin Skywalker doesn’t randomly become Darth Vader. Who knows that there was a method of anger, alright? By the way, that last analogy isn’t in the Bible. I just saw some of the back going Anakin Skywalker. Where is that again? Where’s Anakin? Uh, that’s not in scripture.
But who knows that method is important. Let me say this. How you treat the presence of Jesus has present and eternal consequence in your life. How you treat and how you spend time with the Holy Spirit has present and eternal effect in your life. So here’s the thing. You can do two things with the presence of Jesus in your life. I want to show you a river.
The first river behind me is of the river Mekong. And someone damned it up and you can live a life where you dammed the presence of Jesus. Well you dam him and you say, listen, Lord, I’ll turn the tap on when I need a bit of healing. Listen, I’m going to dam the presence up and I’ll let you out when I need a bit of prophecy. I’ll let you out when I need a little bit, a little bit of hope. I’ll let you know Jesus when I need you in my life and we live a life.
Some of us where we dam the presence of Jesus. But all it brings is death. That river used to be teeming with life. Now, it’s dead. It’s a dead river. Because it was dammed up. This other river behind though. It’s not dammed up. And it can do whatever ever it likes. It’s teeming with life, life in it, life all around it and I want to say this morning, that when you give your life over to Jesus and let Jesus do whatever he wants to do. Your life is like this. It’s full of life. And it teams with hope. And it teams with healing right? When you let Jesus flow, this is the picture of your life.
But if you dam up the presence of Jesus, it just leads to decay. And so this morning, I want to preach to the thought flowing with Jesus. You’re anointed now, right? And so I want to talk about the flow of Jesus. What would life look like if you gave 100% of everything you are, thought, felt to Jesus. What would happen in your life? We’re going to talk about that today. So, to keep us on track, I want to talk about four things.
Number one, I want to talk about what did Jesus say he was going to do? What Jesus did? Then, what is Jesus doing? The second thing I want to talk about is a word called Shemita. Everyone say Shemita. We’re going to talk about and see what that means. Then, we’re going to talk about what did Jesus mean when he said that? I want to read a bit of scripture in just in a moment and he says something very particular, very peculiar and we’re going to find out what did Jesus mean when he said that and then, I’m going to just finish off talking about following the flow.
So, let’s talk about Jesus because if we’re going to give our whole life to Jesus, where is he going to take us? Right? If we’re going to get into that river, if we’re going to get into that flow, where’s that flow going? A flowing river goes somewhere. Where is Jesus take me when I get into that river with Jesus. Jesus begins his ministry by outlining his intentions. And in Luke 4:16 to 20, Jesus says this, he went to Nazareth where he had been brought up and on the Sabbath day, he went into the synagogue as was his custom and he stood up to read Isaiah 61. Isaiah 61 was this, the prophecy about this Messiah who was going to free the people from all that sin, who’s going to free the people from oppression, give release and freedom, and Jesus stands up and reads Isaiah sixty-one.
Luke 4:16-20 NKJV
So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
We’re going to stop right there. He has come to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour. And so for a long time, the Jews were waiting for this Messiah. It had been prophesied throughout the whole Old Testament that there was going to be a new covenant. There’s going to be this new person that you can connect with and Jesus comes and he gets into the synagogue and he says, hey, here I am. That person that you’ve been waiting for, it’s me. I’m right here. Hello, right?
It’s me you’re looking for. That sounds like a lot of Richie’s on, isn’t it? Hello. Is it me you’re looking for? I can see it in your eyes. I can see it in your smile. You were all I’ve ever wanted and my arms are rope. Who knows? Maybe Jesus did sing a little bit of Lionel Richie. And right? Because you know just what to say. And you know just what to do. And I want to tell you so much. Come on I reckon you know the last three words. Are you ready? Three, two, one. I love you. Oh come on give yourselves a round of applause. Come on. I’ve gotta be the first preacher to make you sing Lionel Richie in church.
So Jesus comes in and says hey you know that person has been prophesied for thousands of years. I’m right here. Here I am. And this is Jesus’s intention. Is that he would bring vision. Is that he would open up ears so that we can hear the word. Is that he would bring healing and he would bring this fresh flow. Into the into planet Earth. Right? This is his flow. This was his intention. Did Jesus do what he is going to do? Did he do what he said he was going to do?
Three chapters later. Jesus’s cousin Johnny’s in prison. He sends out his disciples and says hey can you go see if Jesus is doing what he said he would do? Because this is important it. And John’s disciples come back and they say, Jesus says to John’s disciples, go back to John, tell him what you’ve seen and heard. The blind see, the lame walk, those with leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the good news is being preached to the poor and so not only did Jesus come out with intention but Jesus actually did what he said he was going to do.
The question is this, does Jesus still do those things today? And I want to say, yes, he does. And I want to say that the church is littered with healings. Your church is littered with salvation. Your church is littered with people being set free. You know, in our church, we’ve seen God do some amazing things in the last few years. We had a guy named Daniel who had he broke his back and he went and had surgery and they put staples all down his back. One morning, we were praying for him that God would heal him and so he went back to the doctors and he went back to the doctors and the doctors were, they were like, hang on, something’s wrong here… They’re doing the scan. W prayed for him. There are no more staples in his back. Like, how does that work? Right? Where are they gone? Right? God still does amazing healings.
You know, in the last few years, we’ve had people have cancer. Uh someone had cancer in their throat, someone breast cancer and we as a church prayed for them. We anointed them and we’ve seen those people come out and healed in Jesus name, right? You know, God still does amazing things today.
God’s still doing, is doing amazing things. Jesus still moves. Yeah. And when you say yes to Jesus, this is the flow that you live in. You live in healing. You live in hope. You live in hope. That’s where Jesus takes you when you say yes to Jesus This is what happens when you walk closer with him, when you talk more with him, when you spend more time with him, when you follow him, and when you flow with him, a release comes over your life. A release of healing, a release of anointing, a release of vision, a release of freedom. Some of us need to stop being held by anxiety and stop being held by fear and stop being held by what was and we need to be with Jesus who releases vision and future and healing over your life.
Stop living the past and get into the flow where Jesus can move you forward. That’s the direction that God takes us when we spend time with him. There’s a release of anointing, vision, freedom, and a release of the year of the Lord. Wow. He has anointed me to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour. What is that? In a few words, what Jesus said was one word which was the word Shamita, the year of the Lord’s favour. stand what Shemita means and what Jesus means here when he says this. We gotta go back 3,350 years.
To a country called Egypt. And in Egypt, there were a few million Jews who were enslaved in that country. And God chooses them to be His representatives on earth and He speaks to a man named Moses and says Moses I need you to go to Pharaoh. So Moses goes to Pharaoh and he says Pharaoh, Pharaoh, let my people go. And the Pharaoh says no. And so God through Moses ascends some plagues to change the Pharaoh’s mind and so you know the river turns blood. He sends frogs and all these plagues and he gives everyone Gold Coast Titans membership cards right? And the Pharaoh’s that’s too much. That’s too much. Take them. Get rid of them. And so they leave. They’re free.
They’re free after 400 years of slavery. 400 that’s twenty generations. That’s you your kids, their kids, their children, their children, their children, their children, their children, their children, their children, and that’s halfway. Wow. Who knows that’s a lot of slavery. What do you think that does to a psychic of a nation? Wow. That for 20 generations, four hundred and twelve years. They’ve been told you are nothing. You own nothing. You have no identity. Wow. Right? It does something to a nation and so God delivers them and they get to a place called Mount Sinai where God gives them what we know as the ten commandments or you know, the ten rules to life, 10 ways to do life better, 10 ways to freedom pretty much.
Well, what we don’t hear much about is the other things that God gives Moses at Mount Sinai. He gives Moses five other things. For the Israelites to do walking into their future or walking into their flow and the five things is this, the first one we find in Leviticus twenty-five says this, while Moses was on Mount Sinai, the Lord said to him, give the following instruction to the people of Israel. When you’ve entered the land I’m giving you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath rest before the Lord every seventh year. Everyone say seven.
Deuteronomy fifteen twelve says, at the end of every seventh year, you must cancel the debts of everyone who owes you money.
Deuteronomy 15:12 NKJV
If your brother, a Hebrew man, or a Hebrew woman, is sold to you and serves you six years, then in the seventh year you shall let him go free from you.
And those with the mortgage said, Deuteronomy fifteen twelve. If a fellow Hebrew sells himself or herself to be your servant and serves you for 6 years, in the seventh year, you must set that servant free. Leviticus twenty-five twenty-one says;
Leviticus 25:21 NKJV
Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it will bring forth produce enough for three years.
In fact, you’ll be eating from that large copy even in the ninth year. There’s blessing.
Deuteronomy thirty-one says this in the last one. Then Moses gave them this command at the end of every seventh year, the year of release, or the year of the Lord, you must read this book instruction to all the people of Israel. Call them all together so they may hear this book of instruction and learn how to fear the Lord and carefully obey.
The word simply means seventh. It means seventh. It’s the number seven. And the number seven is important in Jewish culture. Number seven means to fulfill an oath. Seven is the number of completion. God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. Seventh. It’s called the Sabbath or the day of the Lord or the day of release. Seven was the number of statements that Jesus made on the cross. seven petitions in the Lord’s prayer. Shemita just means seven. And it was the seventh year in which the Jewish nation had to do all of five things.
Number one, they had to rest. Number two, they had to release any debts. Number three, they had to redeem land and people. Number four, they had to rely on God and number five, they had to revere the power of God. They had to do all of those five things that had to rest. They had to release. They had to redeem. They had to rely on God and then reveal his power. Here’s a little fun fact. Right now, up until September, we’re living in a literal Shemita year. Right up until September, we’re living in the Jewish Shamita year.
I really believe that this year is a year of release for the Church. You know, we’ve been talking a long time for what has been cut off the church. But I’m going to live in that Shemita year where God’s going to give a release for us as a church, right? So, they do all of these five things. The Shemita year was a year of release. If you had any they were released. If anyone, Jesus goes on further, it’s talking about money, Jesus goes on further and said, you know, our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. forgive us our debts as we forgive those who have a debt against us.
Jesus goes one step further and says, actually, it’s not just about money. It’s actually about your heart as well. What debts do you have to other people? They need to be released, right? That needs to be released and so the to year was this year of release. It’s the year of the Lord’s anointing. It’s the year of the Lord’s favour. And so what did Jesus mean when he said that? What did Jesus mean when he said that I’ve been anointed to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour? What did Jesus mean when he said, I’ve been anointed to proclaim the year of Shemita.
What Jesus said was actually very controversial. The very dangerous thing to say because what Jesus was saying was this, you don’t have to wait anymore to have a release of freedom in your life. You don’t have to wait for the religious people to tell us, now it’s time for you to have a healing. Now, it’s time for you to have a breakthrough. Now, it’s time for you to forgive. Now, it’s time for you to rest. Now, it’s time for you to have a flow of the Holy Ghost. They didn’t have to wait 7 years. Jesus is saying, hey, right now, right in this moment, don’t wait. You can have all that stuff right now if you just say yes. Jesus our every moment. You don’t have to wait. Don’t wait for next Sunday. Don’t wait to have a miracle happen in your life.
But right now, you can have the presence of God. Right now, you can have Jesus do a work in your life and do a flow. Man, isn’t that good news? Man, I’m kind of tired of waiting. I’m tired. I don’t want Jesus to pass me by and wait for another moment. What kind of life is that? Come on. Let’s encounter the presence of God now. Let’s encounter the presence of Jesus now. Because right now Jesus is your release. Amen. Jesus is our Shemita year every single day. So, the question then is this, how do I flow with Jesus? How do I flow in that? How can I be in a flow that brings me rest? Who knows that we live in a very anxious time right now? People aren’t resting.
I mean, reading a book right now. It said before technology, people would average 11 hours sleep a day now it’s about six. Right. When the computer was invented, they said that in years to come, this will take all of our work off us and we’ll just be people of leisure. Wasn’t that a lie? We’re all overworked. We’re not sleeping enough, right? Who needs some rest? Right? Let me say this. Rest isn’t skipping church and having a day off. That’s not rest. Come on.
Because the Shemita year was resting and still doing Sabbath. Still revering God. Still having a fear of the Lord. You will actually find rest when you come and get into his presence. Right? That’s where you find real rest. If you want to overcome those things that burden you get in the presence of God. Where is God here? Here. Jesus lives in two places. You can find Jesus in two places. He lives only two places. Number one in the scripture. That’s where you find Jesus. You find him in the Bible. Yeah. The second place you find Jesus is in the church. Because Jesus moves in my life and he moves in your life. And so we only experience Jesus in the scripture and in the body of believers. And so that’s why it’s important for you to be in your word and to be in the company of believers.
Because that’s where Jesus lives. And if I’m living his flow that’s where I need to be. Right? And so let me tell you get in that flow of Jesus, right? Because he is there. So, how do we follow the flow? How do we get into the presence of Jesus? Here we go. Number one. Number one is this don’t dam Jesus don’t dam the flow. Don’t go to Jesus just when you want to go to Jesus. Don’t turn Jesus on just when you want something, right? John 4:14 says this, but those who drink the water I give, this is Jesus talking. Those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.
I grew up in North Queensland or in Central Queensland and we had a lot of friends who had farms, you know, cattle farms, sugarcane farms and things like that and most farms had a dam on the farm. A property with a big body of water, a dam there and there was always fun in summer going in riding motorbikes and things like that and then jumping in the dam to cool off and but some dams though, right? When you damn the body of water, who knows that certain things happen to the water and so, you know, I remember as as a kid, you would go and it’s time to go for swimming.
You would jump into the dam and you’d think, man, I’m going to get refreshed. There’s going to be a dam. There’s water. I’m going to jump into this water and I remember this one time we jumped in and and and then you get out of the water and it’s like, what’s that smell? What’s that smell? Right and you realize, hang on a minute. This is the only body of water anywhere here and all the cows have been here drinking the water. They’ve been pooing in the water. So, there’s all this poo in the water. So, we’ve been swimming in this pooey water and so we get out now. It’s all, we’re all stinky. like, oh, let’s get out. Then, you start tripping over.
It’s like, what, what’s happening? And there are all these weeds at the bottom and so, and so it’s like you’re tripping back into the pooey water and all this stuff. I just want to get out of this because now, you think guys thinking tripping into that and the water isn’t fresh, it’s hot. Have you ever jumped into a hot thing to swim like? It’s like, oh, this is not refreshing at all. And so now you smell like poo. You’re tripping over the weeds and you’re not even refreshed. And sometimes we Christians live like that where we damn Jesus. We’re leaving all the poo from the past and there’s the smell. Everyone can smell it. It lingers.
Whenever you see the word weeds in scripture, usually it’s talking about sin and we trip over the sin. What is sin? Is sin bad things? No. Sin is anything that you do that separates you from God. That’s what sin is. Right? That’s what sin is. And so we live these lives where we’ve still walking in the things of the past and we’re tripping over these things that are keeping us from God. We’re not even refreshed. Because we’re not living in the river. We’re not living in the flow.
A couple months ago. There’s a place called Gordon Country just west of Ipswich. Up in the mountains. It’s beautiful. And I took my kids there and we jumped into this flowing creek. And jumped in and it was freezing cold. And you know that you’re alive. And let me tell you this. We jumped in and I didn’t smell poo. There were no weeds to trip over And we were refreshed because we lived in the flow. When you live in the flow of the Holy Spirit, all the things from all the junk gets washed away. All the weeds get taken out. And you live in this life. Abundantly and refreshed when you live in the flow. But when you damn Jesus, it’s not refreshing. All that stuff gets you, right? And so we have to live in the flow. Come on.
The Bible says that. Jesus says, when you drink and be thirsty, it becomes this fresh bubbling spring within them. You have eternal life. What dams up the flow? Three things, sin, mediocrity, and apathy. That damns the flow right there. Number two, how do I live in the flow? Number two, respond to the word of God. Romans 1017 says this. So, faith comes from hearing that is hearing the good news about Christ. The word hearing doesn’t mean to listen. What hearing means is this. It means now that you’ve heard what are you going to do about it? Wow. That’s what it means. Right? Now that you’ve heard the gospel, now that you’ve heard, what are you going to do about it?
I’m a parent of three kids and we have many things in our house that our kids hear and have to do to be part of our home. I remember one time our son who was about six or seven one day. He’s out playing with his sister and I was in the kitchen and listening to them play and he screams out this naughty word to his sister. Sounds kind of like a truck, right? And he says this to his sister. And I said, Oi. Come here. And so, I went out with him and he comes, he said, what? I said, where did you hear that word? He said, mom, Like that’s it. I gotta talk to her again. And I said we don’t use that word in this house. I said come with me. So I took him out the front. And I gave my six year old a choice to make. I said see all these houses here? I said and all those houses they use that word there.
They use it whenever they want. They’re allowed to. I turn them back to our house. I said see this house? In this house we don’t use that word here. So you have a choice to make son. A six year old at six years old, I gave my my son a choice. I said, do you want to live in all those houses and you can use that word? Or do you live in my house and not use that word? We haven’t seen him for about 10 years. And so if you do see him, say hi. One kid down is easier. Um He said, dad, I want to live with you. I said, that’s right. I know you do because here’s the thing right. In the father’s house is blessing. In the father’s house is favor, right? He’s not living there based on rule. He lives in there so that he knows that there’s an inheritance, there’s a blessing. When he’s in dad’s house, right? And so we need to not just hear but do. Very good. Right?
Don’t just hear that Jesus is a good flow. How is your life going to change now knowing that in the flow is healing and hope and favor and blessing. Right? What are you going to do right now? Don’t just hear it. How are you going to respond? The number three is this. You gotta flow in the right company. If I get the band up as well, that’ll be great. You need to flow in the right company. First Thessalonians five eleven says this, so encourage each other and build each other up just as you are already doing. You know, flowing with the right people is important. There’s power and accountability. I am a product of good discipleship and accountability with good friends.
That’s why I’m here Because I got myself at a small group. I got myself in a connect group. What do we call them here? Connect groups, right? I lived in connect group in in in connect groups. And I had that I flowed with the right people, people encouraged me. Here’s the thing, right? Uh there’s power and accountability that causes you to turn intention into action. You can have all the best intentions in the world. But intention won’t put you in the flow. Right? Only action does. Without action your intention means nothing. So let me tell you if you’re not in a group here at King’s Church. This is a great church to be a part of. This is an amazing church where this church, this church lives in the flow and I’m telling you, if you want to live a life of of influence if you want to live a life of power and authority, if you want to live the way that God has designed you and destined you to live.
This is a great church to plant yourself in. So, if you’re visiting here today, maybe you’re not in a connect group. Get with the right people. These people are the right people. They will help you move forward. They will help you succeed. Gotta with the right people because here’s the thing It does matter who you put your life into. It matters whose hands it’s in. Right? It matters whose hands it’s in. You could put a tennis racket in my hand and I’ll give you a good game. I like a bit of tennis. Put that same racket in the hands of Ash Bardy. Man, that thing is an Australian Open right there. It all matters whose hands it’s in, right? All matters. Uh you put a football in my hands. It’s worth 12 bucks from Rebel All Sports. Put that same football in the hands of the Gold Coast Titans. Still worth 12 bucks.
You put a slingshot in my hand? Well, you put that same footy in the hands of Jonathan Thurston. That thing is countless state of origins in NRI Premiership. He put a slingshot in my hand. It’s a cool little kid’s toy. I’ll try and get the target. Put that same thing in the hands of David. He takes down giants. It all depends whose hands it’s in. Come on. Give me some nails, hammer some wood. I’ll try build you something. We’ll see how we go. Maybe a rickety birdcage or something. You put those same nails in the hands of Jesus. Man, he brings a flow like you’ve never seen before. He brings freedom. He brings salvation. He brings redemption He brings true rest. He brings a reverence like we’ve never seen before.
It all matters whose hands you’re in. Maybe here this morning and maybe for the first time you’ve heard that there’s a God that wants you to be in his flow. He wants to be in relationship with you. Maybe today, you’ve never said yes to Jesus You’ve never said yes to being in that flow, a flow of healing. I don’t believe that there’s some healing here this morning for you. In a moment, I want to pray and open this place up and we’re going to pray for you. Maybe you need a flow of healing in your life this morning. Maybe you need a flow of redemption. Maybe you need to forgive and you just need that power. Bible says, lay hands on each other and you’ll be healed. I’m praying this morning.
There’s some healing in the house but before we get there, I want to talk to you and maybe you’ve never said yes to that flow to Jesus. The Bible says if we believe in our hearts, confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord, then we’re saved.
