SERMON NOTES: Word of the Lord 2019

SEVEN THINGS I BELIEVE GOD IS SAYING TO US IN 2019

1) 2019 will rise and fall on our prayer lives.

  • “History belongs to the intercessors, who believe the future into being. If this is so, then intercession, far from being an escape from action, is a means of focusing for action and of creating action” – Walter Winks
  • “God has placed the pen of history in the hands of a praying church” – Lou Engle
  • I Cor 14:15 (ESV) – 15 What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.
  • We need to pray in the spirit and in our understanding
  • Prayer is not just for the faithful few but for every follower of Jesus
  • Luke 11:1 (ESV) – Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.”
  • “Prayer is not learned in a classroom but in the closet.” – E. M. Bounds
  • “We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services, but few conversions; much machinery, but few results.” – R.A. Torrey

REPOST: Get the Most Out of 2019: F8 LIFE Goals

One of my personal disciplines at the start of each year is that I take a fresh look at my goals using something I call the ‘F8 Life Goals’. Basically, F8 Life Goals gives you a lens to look at your life through and identify goals, priorities and areas of focus. I have found it helpful to use it as a framework to make sure I’m looking at my life holistically and planning for personal growth. (Please note: the way I’m wired it works for me to have several goals in each of the eight areas. If that is too much for you feel free to pick one goal in each of the areas or even pick several of the areas to focus on for the coming year) Hope this is helpful.F

F8 Life Goals Worksheet

There are many good ways to approach setting goals for your life. At Toronto City Church we have learned/developed an approach we call F8 Life Goals. In this approach, you look at your life through the lens of eight different categories and set goals for each area. The categories are:

Message Notes: 30 + 18 = 5 – Remembering the Merge

“30 + 18 = 5” REMEMBERING THE MERGE 

John 12:24 (ESV)  – 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

I have really enjoyed the past several weeks of ‘A Summer to Remember’ – it has been very moving for me to reflect on all that God has done in both Toronto City Church and in Church Without Limits over the years. I have especially loved hearing the stories/testimonies from people.

Some things I have observed over the past several weeks:

  1. Both churches experience significant/special moves of God over their time
  2. There was great sacrifice/passion/faith that was invested in both churches
  3. Both churches “were family”
  4. Both churches had a passion to reach and impact our city… to advance the Kingdom of God, to impact the nations

Message Notes: Living to Give #04 – Leave a Legacy

I       INTRODUCTION

A)  Today is our Breakout 2018 LEGACY Offering as well as the conclusion of our “Live to Give” series. A key theme for us this month has been legacy

B)  Legacy = something tangible that is passed from one generation to another

C)  Legacy and giving are powerfully connected – legacy is all about giving. Legacy is about sacrificing now, plowing the way, and laying a foundation so others can go further and farther

D)  Here at TCC we are experiencing the fruit of 48+ combined years of prayer, sacrifice, obedience, perseverance and giving… it’s the season to renew our focus on the legacy we will be leaving to the next generation
