The Dance: Freedom from the Performance Trap
Part 4: Leave a Trace!
Pastor Jon Fredricks
As small and insignificant as you feel sometimes…unseen, unheard, disrespected...you leave a wake, A MARK, in the lives around you.
Today’s Scripture: Genesis 48:10-16
Own the Stewardship
... “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Speak Future Into
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Do It NOW
Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift. Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.
Proverbs 3:27-29 (The Message)
Never walk away from someone who deserves help;
your hand is God’s hand for that person.
Don’t tell your neighbor “Maybe some other time”
or “Try me tomorrow”
when the money’s right there in your pocket.
Don’t figure ways of taking advantage of your neighbor
when he’s sitting there trusting and unsuspecting.
AFTER THE LIVESTREAM
Jesus, I know that I have been separate from you my entire life. I have tried to pretend otherwise, but I realize today that my decisions, choices...my sin has separated me from God. I believe you are the Son of God and my only way forward. Please save me as I surrender the rest of my life into your hands. Thank you that you hear me!
