Faith is Rising

Welcome to Doxa Deo Community Church, Kingston Campus! Whether you're new or super familiar with the family; a devoted follower of Jesus or someone who isn't quite sure yet what to think and believe, we are so happy you are here Follow the Message Notes below with the passages to read FAITH IS RISING What have we heard from God? 1. God has always wanted people to know Him personally “I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one comes next to the Father except through faith in me.” ~JOHN 14: 6 TPT “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.” ~JOHN 14: 9 ESV 2. God has always wanted people to share Him personally But in your hearts set Christ apart [as holy—acknowledging Him, giving Him first place in your lives] as Lord. Always be ready to give a [logical] defence to anyone who asks you to account for the hope and confident assurance [elicited by faith] that is within you, yet [do it] with gentleness and respect. ~1 PETER 3: 15 AMP The Holy Spirit is the one who saves but God works in us and through us. 3. Surrendering to Jesus is the doorway to walking in Newness For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. ~1 CORINTHIANS 5: 14-17 ESV 4. People with Expectation will see Faith Rise We need to walk with God in relationship We need to be ready to share the reason for our hope We need to live in surrender A story from the old testament: 14 So when the people set out from their tents to pass over the Jordan with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, 15 and as soon as those bearing the ark had come as far as the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the brink of the water (now the Jordan overflows all its banks throughout the time of harvest), 16 the waters coming down from above stood and rose up in a heap very far away, at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan, and those flowing down toward the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, were completely cut off. And the people passed over opposite Jericho. 17 Now the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firmly on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan, and all Israel was passing over on dry ground until all the nation finished passing over the Jordan. ~JOSHUA 3: 14-17 ESV The call to all of us today is to take-hold of this picture for your year ahead, and step into the river
