Pastor Aries’ Sermon 16, September, 2017 Jesus’ Race

What is the purpose of cars going round and round in F1?
F1. Formula 1. It is a set of rules every driver needs to abide in order to win the grand prize.
It is similar to Christian life

The Jesus’ race.
If we follow the rule, we will win the ultimate grand prize.
1 Cor 9:24-26
We need to understand our purpose of walk in God.

What is the purpose of race?
Speed of race and direction.
Having a successful life is important, but the direction (or the purpose) is more important.
Success without purpose leads to frustration.
Fulfilling purpose leads to progress.

What is the point of moving so fast yet ending up in the wrong direction?
After we experience fast paced life, we need to step back and ask where the blessing leads us to.
In this F1 weekend, God wants us to slow down to consider our purpose.

Activities or busyness does not mean progress.
Success is not measured by activities but by outcomes.

The purpose of the Gospel.
The anointing at the Bethany.
Mark 14:3-9
What she did back then serves as a reminder fot all the preachers, ministers and pastors.

The purpose behind every service to Jesus.
What is this purpose?
In the passage above, there are 2 perspectives: Judas’ and disciples’.

Judas’ perspective
Jesus was not worthy of the fragrant oil.
From his perspective, Jesus is not his Lord.
How do we see Jesus in our lives?
When we are so blessed, does He remain our Lord?
When we are so busy  with ministry, does ministry become our lord?
We can be Christians but still having worldly perspective.
Purpose of the Gospel = to bring each one of us to the true estimate of His worth.
Is it a waste or a good investment?
When we go to church, is it a waste of time?
If Lord Jesus is worthy to be worshipped, nothing is too much to be offered to Him.
To Jesus, every true work is done unto the Lord not unto men.

When we are successful, maybe it is time to reevaluate our progress.
Col 3:23-24
Do we do it for Jesus and not unto men?
We can be so busy winning the lost and not do it for God.

In our pursuit of success, initially we may do it for God.
Yet, we deviate along the way.
What have we been in the past few years?
If we do it unto man (or even ourselves), we will be frusrated.

The disciples’ perspective
Matt 26:8-9
Judas’ perspective is the world’s.
Yet, disciples’ perspective is even more relevant to us.
They criticized the woman for pouring oil to Jesus.
To them, waste = not fully maximized.
Many times we compare ourselves with other Christians.
We may pray: God, my talents/times are not fully maximized. I should serve in a much larger scale. Lord, You are not using mr enough.

The Lord is telling us: stop looking at others and start looking at Him.
Purpose of the Gospel: the Lord is pleased.
It is not “Has the poor been helped?”.
It is “Has the Lord been satisfied?”
Large ministry is just the byproduct.

There is endless service to the poor or endless business opportunity.
But, His biggest concern is whether we please Him.
It is Him, not the service to Him.

This woman is a reminder to all of us.
Mark 14:9
Only when the Lord is pleased, then the poor will be satisfied.
The aim of preaching the Gospel is to satisfy Him.

When she broke the jar of oil, the fragrance spread.
It is also called the fragrance of Christ.
When something inside us is broken, the fragrance of Christ exudes from us that attracts non-Christians to Him.

Pastor Sun’s Sermon 9, September, 2017 Encounters

There are changes in the praise and worship.
3 praise and 2 worship.
It must not be a structure.
Instead, CHC will be a people of unusual worship.

In our worship, we will experience healing, deliverance and breakthrough.
We will be so close with God that our forehead touches His forehead.

When we make room for the Holy Spirit, He will move and touch the hearts of the people.

When God entrusts us with a revelation, He will start small to see if we treasure it, if we are hungry enough for it.

When the Holy Spirit comes, it is not about dancing or crawling or crying or laughing.
It is about obeying Him. When we obey Him, our lives will never be the same.

Even as we worship God, He will open door which no man can shut. He will close door which no one can open.

Zaccheus
Luke 19.
He was tax collector and disliked by the people.
He defrauded them.
One day Lord Jesus went into his house and  changed his life.

Jacob
Genesis 32:28
God called him Israel (the prince with God), not Jacob (the supplanter).

Likewise, when we enter into the presence of God, no matter what happened in our past, He will give us the new identity.

Jacob got the first hand encounter with God.
He had face to face meet up with God.

Similarly, why should we stand far away?
God invited us to enter beyond the veil.

Jacob also got a new walk with God.
Genesis 32:25
Jacob had a pattern of running away from problems.
After this, he could no longer run away.

Until we are broken unto God, we cannot do mighty exploits for Him.
The greater work God wants to do is for us to have new identity, encounter and walk with God.

Some encounters are dramatic.
Moses saw the burning the bush.
Peter, James and John saw the transfiguration.
Some encounters are not so dramatic.
Joseph had dreams and the dreams saved a nation.
Lord Jesus quietly went into Zaccheus’ house.

If we look for supernatural only in the spectacular, we will miss the Holy Spirit.

It is not the intensity of the encounter.
It is how we follow it up.
The Israelites had mighty encounters but they did not understand. Neither did they have God’s heart.

Acts 9:3
Saul had the encounter with God.
He fell under the power.
It is not what happens when we fall under the power.
It is what we do when we get up.

How did Saul/Paul follow up the encounter?
He built the altar of consecration in his inner being.
In our heart, is there a place that is exclusively for Lord Jesus?
Paul never forgot about his encounter.
He even testified it before the king Agrippa.

Romans 1:1
Bondservant = doulos = slave.
He fully belongs to the master.
Not just any slave.
He is love slave: he voluntarily serves out of love.
Ex 21:2,5-6
Requirement to be love slave: pain to the ear.
It is about listening and obeying God.
For Paul, he obeyed the voice of God by preaching the Gospel to the Gentiles.

Kathryn Kuhlman.
She moved in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Yet, she made mistake by marrying a married man.
She was stubborn and did not repent in the beginning.
One day she had a dead-end encounter.
She then repented.

What we need is the cross.
Do we want to experience His power?
Let us come to the cross and yield to Him.

Acts 9:6
Saul asked, “Lord what do You want me to do?”
Similarly, we should ask God what He wants us to do and obey Him.

Gal 2:20
Can we say, “I have been crucified with Christ.”?

Let us follow through the encounter with consecration.
