 Deuteronomy 5:29
 29 Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!

 
Introduction – One of the most cherished pictures I have ever seen is the first one of mother and child. Now that is real beauty. A future of love, laughter, smiles and milestones awaits. Also sleepless nights, scuffed knees, temper tantrums and school work of every kind are just around the corner. There is also the responsibility of all parents for the Spiritual development of the growing children as well. 
Let us learn together what God has written to help us as parents and grandparents;

 
I.It Begins With A Heart of Obedience
A.Deuteronomy 5:29
 29 Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!

 Colossians 3:16 – 17 
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

B.A heart transformed 

C.An understanding of one’s responsibility 

D.A commitment to Obedience

E.An experience of ‘Abundant Life” for generations – Psalm 71:18
 18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded,
O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation,
Your power to everyone who is to come.

II.It Continues With Unwavering Focus
A.Deuteronomy 5:32 – 33  
 32 “Therefore you shall be careful to do as the Lord your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. 33 You shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess.

Isaiah1: 19 – 20
19 If you are willing and obedient,
You shall eat the good of the land;
20 But if you refuse and rebel,
You shall be devoured by the sword”;
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

B.Be an active person of obedience

C.Legalism and liberalism is always a danger!

D.God’s Favor is always wonderful! – Psalm 30: 4 – 5
 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
5 For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.


III.It Involves Teaching Our Children
A.Deuteronomy 6:5 – 9  
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

  Hebrews 5: 12 – 14 
12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.


B.Good teaching has a true foundation - Deuteronomy 6:5
   5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

C.Teaching involves every aspect of our Childs life.

D.Raising a child in God’s favor is wonderful!!! - Proverbs 12:2
 A good man obtains favor from the Lord,
But a man of wicked intentions He will condemn.

Conclusion – Motherhood the most rewarding and challenging thing one does! 
Let us stay focused on our Spiritual growth so we can teach our kid’s in “God’s Favor

Divine Transformation part 1 

Text : 2 Corinthians 5:17 
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:
 The old has gone, the new is here!

Introduction 
Change, Change, change wow do we hear it so often today. After really trying
to find a truth from God for / to His People I believe we need more than change we need “transformation”? ‘A real change in one’s form, function and or appearance’. 
 No longer this but a new that!!  
What does the Bible teach on this drastic need?

A.2 Corinthians 5:17 “New Creature” (expectation / availability ) 
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:
 The old has gone, the new is here!

B.Lamentations 3:26 “From God” ( A Loving God is Ready)
 26 it is good to wait quietly
  for the salvation of the Lord.

C.John 14:6 “Through Christ”( The price of the gift has been paid)
 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
 No one comes to the Father except through me.

D.Romans 12:1 – 2 “Not of this World” (No human intervention produces Spiritual transformation)
 12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

These scriptures give us a look into our need and where the source of our transformation is found. After today we will look at 5 complete “transformations” by God to needy man in Scripture.

"Transformation" Part Two

Nicodemus, When Knowledge Is Not Enough 

Text: Lamentations 3:26
 26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.

Introduction – Last week we presented the foundation of God’s provision for and demand of the Lost Man’s Transformation. More and More churches are no longer stressing the point of one’s need of personal transformation. Cultural and congregational items take up so much of what is taught today. Today our example is one where knowledge and position was not enough to bring 
“Divine Change”. 
Let us look at Nicodemus together:


1.A Man of Contemplation 

A.John 3:1 – 4 
3 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”


B.Pharisee – sect of very strict doers of the law.


C.Sanhedrin – the ruling tribunal of very city. Over the protection and judgement of the law.

D.Nicodemus knew the law and that led him to a drawing to know the “Messiah” / Jesus.

E.Ephesians 1: 18 – 19
18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power

 Our prayer should be God Please open the eyes of our “Unsaved family and Friends. “Really, They are LOST!!  


II.A Plan of Transformation

A.John 3: 5 – 8
 5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

B.John 3:16
 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 10:10
 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

 Romans 3:23
 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Romans 6:23 
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 Romans 5:8
8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Revelations 3:20
 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

C.4 Spiritual laws 

D.Transformation – “A thorough or drastic change in appearance, function or purpose”

E.Jesus gave us the PLAN!!!



III.A Promise of Salvation 

A.John 14:6
 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

 John 16:5 – 15
 5 “But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ 6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.



B.A Promise that is always true, our need, hunger fulfilled!!!

C.God the Holy Spirit , will always draw us to Personal Salvation “in Christ”

D.The Promise fulfilled in us, Believers!!!


Conclusion – Are you ready for personal transformation?
