What is in your heart?

The Three Loves

Great Commandment to Great Commission The aim of this manual is to aid and equip any follower to multiply the revival that has happened in their own heart. Remembering that it is not wise and persuasive words, but rather the power of God behind the words that will transform hearts of individuals and communities. Our aim is to keep the contents as simple as possible, but no simpler.

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 4:17-19

1 Love God

Everything we do must flow from presence centered living unto an obedience based lifestyle (John 15:111).

2 Love each other

Only in the context of presence centered community can the latter part of the great commandment be fulfilled. That we would love each other as he first loved us (John 15:12-17).

3 Love the lost 1

We have been called to multiply and expand this family to lost sons and daughters of all nations (Matthew 28:16-20).

How do we cross culture? If Jesus was who he said he was, then the reality of God and the Kingdom must move from our heads to our hearts. We go into the world not to multiply our cultural western religion. Rather, to invite sons and daughters into the powerful reality of their Father. To awaken the eyes, the ears and the hearts of God’s children. To restore value, purpose and destiny to those living without.

As Paul writes,

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people.

1 Timothy 2:1-6 5

How do I share? Continually seek to bring just Jesus and not our cultural baggage. Most people do not have the worldview you do. The living Gospel will transform hearts, It is our job to help communicate the Gospel in a way that moves past the mind and into the heart.

Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.

1 Corinthians 9:19-22

Our words and message of sound gospel theology must be attached to the reality of God, we must testify to it. They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their Testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. (Rev. 12:11)

Love people into the kingdom of God in power, as Paul wrote to the church in Corinth… My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with the demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power. (1 Corinthians 2:4-5)

Step out in Faith relying on the Holy Spirit to come in power. Lastly, Remember the Parable of Mark 4:26-29, focus on being obedient to the spirit not the stage of growth. Have the words and the ears of a disciple.

How do followers live? How do followers live? Justif ication

Sanctif ication

Our legal standing before God. We are hidden in the innocence of Christ by faith.

Our lifelong growth in Christ likeness. Removal of sin that hinders the intimacy of knowing God.

God’s Role

Man’s Role

We are justified and sanctified by his initiating grace. Christ in us the hope of glory.

Willingness to align ourselves in faith with this empowering grace through obedience.

If We Get It Wrong

From Paul the Apostle “What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus (Eternal Life), for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ – the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith (Justification). I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead (Sanctification). Not that I have already obtained all this (Sanctification), or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it but one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 3:8-14

• Legalism, striving and burnout will be the fruit of not understanding we are fully justified before God by Christ. • Compromise, passivity and stagnation will be the fruit of not understanding a biblical concept of sanctification.

Sustaining Personal Revival

“Find out whether the Christian’s meditation has led him into the unreal, from which he awakes in terror when he returns to the workaday world, or whether it has led him into real contact with God, from which he emerges strengthened and purified. Has it transported him for a moment into a spiritual ecstasy that vanishes when everyday life returns, or has it lodged the Word of God so securely and deeply in his heart that it holds and fortifies him, impelling him to active love, to obedience, to good works? Only the day can decide.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
