Todd’s final message of the year 2010 was on “A Personal Revolution.”


“So the disciples went out, telling everyone they met to repent of their sins and turn to God.”  Mark 6:12

THE THREE BENEFITS OF OBEDIENCE

1.  PARTNERSHIP

“God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”  1 Corinthians 1:9

“It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going.”  Hebrews 11:8

2.  POWER

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”  Ephesians 3:20
“They went right into the house where he was staying, and Jesus asked them, ‘Do you believe I can make you see?’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ they told him, ‘we do.’  Then he touched their eyes and said, ‘Because of your faith, it will happen.’ Then their eyes were opened, and they could see! Jesus sternly warned them, ‘Don’t tell anyone about this.’”  Matthew 9:28-30

3.  PEACE

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33

WHAT STOPS ME?

• FEARS

“The LORD is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.”  Psalm 145:9

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the LORD. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’”  Jeremiah 29:11

• SIN

“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”  Romans 3:23

“Another said, ‘Yes, Lord, I will follow you, but first let me say good-bye to my family.’ But Jesus told him, ‘Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.’”  Luke 9:61-62

HOW DO I DO IT?

“Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.”  Romans 6:13

“‘You are a witness to your own decision,’ Joshua said. ‘You have chosen to serve the LORD.’  ‘Yes,’ they replied, ‘we are witnesses to what we have said.’ ‘All right then,’ Joshua said, ‘destroy the idols among you, and turn your hearts to the LORD, the God of Israel.’”  Joshua 24:22-23

WHERE DO I START

“So he said to Samuel, ‘Go and lie down again, and if someone calls again, say, ‘Speak, LORD, your servant is listening.’”  1 Samuel 3:9

“Taste and see that the Lord is good.  Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him!”  Psalm 34:8
