Monday Kfirst Kickstart: “Taste Freeze”

Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused.  So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday, we continued our series at Kfirst. Every June we look to pour into marriages and this year our series is called, “Senseless.” It was four years ago I read Genesis 2:15-17 and saw the 5 senses at work. 

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it (VISION; TOUCH). And the Lord God commanded the man, saying (HEAR), “You may surely eat(TASTE; SMELL) of every tree of the garden.

The senses were there to not just experience what God provided but to explore what God gifted humanity with. It gave a fascinating view of bringing health to the complexity of relationships, especially marriage.

This week, we look at the sense of “taste.” And when I think about taste, I think about flavor that people experience when they encounter our lives.

Other thoughts from Sunday:

  • The enemy will target where you have the most Kingdom potential.
  • Bitterness is the carbon monoxide of the soul.
  • Our lives don’t change because we’re good, but because God is good.
  • You will never bring change to a world you refuse to touch.
  • Your marriage wasn’t meant to make you happy. It was meant to make you holy.
  • Psalm 34:8, “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
    • “Taste and see” is an invitation to an identity.
    • “Taste and see that the Lord is good” is a realization of God’s goodness.
  • Psalm 119:103, “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Love you all. Have an amazing week.

Other thoughts from Sunday:

  • Receive the touch of God; be the touch of God.
  • Healthy, appropriate touch should:
    • 1 – Create an easy transition from one season to another.
    • 2 – Help with the trauma of life.
    • 3 – Enhance communication.
    • 4 – Create a bond.
  • Don’t diminish the value of physical touch; Don’t distill “touch” to merely physical.
  • Our lives are not LINES; they are LINKS. We find life in community connecting with one another.
  • 7 things transferred by Jesus and His disciples through touch. (Jimmy Evans)
    • 1. Healing (Luke 4:40)
    • 2. Blessing (Matthew 19:15)
    • 3. The Holy Spirit (Acts 8:17)
    • 4. Giftings (1 Timothy 4:14)
    • 5. Authority (Acts 6:16)
    • 6. Spiritual Covering (Acts 16:17)
    • 7. Leadership Empowerment (Acts 13:1-13)
  • What good we could do if we let Jesus teach us the art of Godly affection? Holiness discovered in human touch.
  • Touch is not just the message Jesus preached medium Jesus used.
  • The touch of Jesus commissions us with a calling.

Love you all. Have an amazing week.

Other thoughts from Sunday:

  • Stop living at a level you were saved from and live toward the life you were saved to.
  • Faith in Christ has not just changed the trajectory of your eternity but the patterns of your life.
  • When we take our eyes off God’s direction, we only see our difficulties.
  • Satan instigates (infects with a thought), fascinates (develops a story line), and then assassinates (destroys).
  • The habits you maintain in comfortable seasons will carry you through a difficult seasons.
  • “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” Corrie Ten Boom

This week, we look at the sense of “hearing.” And when I think about hearing, I think about communication. Communication doesn’t guarantee health, it give health an opportunity to develop in a relationship by allowing a husband and wife to get on the same page.

Other thoughts from Sunday:

  • One of the best ways to practice the presence of God is in the manner of how you talk.
  • Does your voice pierce the darkness or create it?
  • Every word we speak is an opportunity to build others up or tear them down; to give God glory or promote our own importance.
  • The way you say something is just as important as what you are saying.

Love you all. Have an amazing week.

Monday Kfirst Kickstart: “The Scent of the Soul”

Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused.  So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday, we kicked off a new series at Kfirst. Every June we look to pour into marriages and this year our series is called, “Senseless.” It was four years ago I read Genesis 2:15-17 and saw the 5 senses at work. 

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it (VISION; TOUCH). And the Lord God commanded the man, saying (HEAR), “You may surely eat(TASTE; SMELL) of every tree of the garden.

The senses were there to not just experience what God provided but to explore what God gifted humanity with. It gave a fascinating view of bringing health to the complexity of relationships, especially marriage.

This week, we look at the sense of “scent.” And when I think about scent, I think about atmosphere. As a friend of my tweeted this week, I agree that the “The Kingdom of God is a culture of leadership.” And in that culture, we don’t allow the atmosphere to dictate who we are. We are determined to know who we are in order to impact the atmosphere around us. So we don’t worry about seeing an scent/atmosphere change as much as we start with a heart change. Because the atmosphere you wan to experience comes from the heart you’re willing to possess.

Check out yesterday’s message:

Other thoughts from Sunday:

  • The atmosphere you want to experience comes from the heart you’re willing to possess.
  • Be what you expect to experience.
  • Whatever you fill yourself with today will come out of you tomorrow.
  • The atmosphere of expectation is the breeding ground for miracles.
  • Want to see something in your marriage tomorrow, time to start seeding in it today.

Love you all. Have an amazing week.
