Sermon Notes 23.01.22
Matt 24:12-14 (TPT)
There will be such an increase of sin and lawlessness Choices. Consequences. Chaos. Curse that those whose hearts once burned with passion for God and others will grow cold. But keep your hope to the end and you will experience life and deliverance. “Yet through it all, this joyful assurance of the realm of heaven’s kingdom will be proclaimed all over the world, providing every nation with a demonstration of the reality of God. And after this the end of this age will arrive.”
Warning - the increase of sin, and lawlessness, can cause hearts to grow cold toward God and toward others.

Fire is transferrable powerful can be extinguished.
Hope is a bit like fire.
What are you giving yourself to (fuel)?
What air are you breathing (oxygen)?
What are you close to (heat)?
PRIORTIZE YOUR PURPOSE
Matt 28 (TPT)
18Then Jesus came close to them and said, “All authority of the universe has been given to me. 19Now wherever you go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 20And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you.
“According to my judgement the most important point to be attended to is this: above all things see to it that your souls are happy in the Lord. Other things may press upon you, the Lord's work may even have urgent claims upon your attention, but I deliberately repeat, it is of supreme and paramount importance that you should seek above all things to have your souls truly happy in God Himself! George Muller
