Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE. Join us at 6 PM EST.
1 Peter 2:9-10 AMP
“But you are not like that, for you have been chosen by God himself—you are priests of the King, you are holy and pure, you are God’s very own—all this so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were less than nothing; now you are God’s own. Once you knew very little of God’s kindness; now your very lives have been changed by it.”
First, you have been chosen by God Himself.
Second, you are priests of the King. . .you are holy and pure.
1 Peter 2:9 TLB
“But you are not like that, for you have been chosen by God himself—you are priests of the King, you are holy and pure, you are God’s very own—all this so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”
“But <<YourName>> is not like that, for <<YourName>> has been chosen by God himself. . .”
Third, you are God’s very own.
Pastor Joel Osteen said:
“You were not created to just get by with an average, unrewarding, or unfulfilling life. God created you to leave your mark on this generation.”
Fourth, so you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
Fifth, once you were less than nothing.
Sixth, once you knew very little of God’s kindness.
Titus 3:4-6 says:
“But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”
Seventh, now your very lives have been changed by His kindness.
Romans 8:17 KJV
“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.”
Romans 12:2 AMP
“Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”
Romans 12:2 NLT
“Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.”
Hebrews 4:12 AMP
“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the [a]breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.”
Romans 10:17 AMP
“So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).“
John 8:44 AMP
“. . .because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false.”
First, because of God's great love for us, we are adopted into His family and made joint heirs with Christ.
1 John 3:1 AMP
“See what [an incredible] quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him.”
Second, we are made to sit in heavenly places (of authority over all demons, sickness, etc.) with Christ.
“… ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you … (then) ye shall become witnesses … .”
Acts 1:8 Paraphrase
“You shall receive the ability after the Holy Ghost has come upon you, and you will be able to witness of me simultaneously in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”
Third, we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ.
Ephesians 1:3 AMP
“May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm.”
God is going to give us every blessing from the heavenly realm.
Jeremiah 32:40 NLT
“And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me.”
“And I will make an everlasting covenant with <<Your Name>>: I will never stop doing good for <<Your Name??. I will put a desire in <<Your Name>>’s heart to worship me, and <<he/she>> will never leave me.”
Fourth, we are the righteousness of Christ through faith, thus being made right before God.
Romans 3:22 TLB
“But now God has shown us a different way to heaven—not by “being good enough” and trying to keep his laws, but by a new way (though not new, really, for the Scriptures told about it long ago). Now God says he will accept and acquit us—declare us “not guilty”—if we trust Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this same way, by coming to Christ, no matter who we are or what we have been like.”
Fifth, we are entitled to a clean conscience before God because of the Blood and can have full assurance of faith when we go before Him.
Hebrews 10:22 AMP
“Let us all come forward and draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance and absolute conviction engendered by faith (by that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), having our hearts sprinkled and purified from a guilty (evil) conscience and our bodies cleansed with pure water.”
Sixth, our sins have been removed from us as far as the east is from the west and God Himself has chosen not to remember our failures.
Psalm 103:12 NLT
“He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.”
Hebrews 8:12 NLT
“And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.”
Seventh, we are loved with the same love that the Father has for Jesus Himself!
John 17:23 AMP
“I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.”
Whatever belongs to <<Your Name>> belongs to Jesus because you are joint-heirs.
Ezekiel 37:4 AMP
“Again He said to me, Prophesy to these bones and say to them, O you dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.”
Philippians 4:13 AMP
“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].”
“All things are possible to me because I believe. . .I know that God selected me and chose me to be His very own. I know that I am a joint heir with Christ. I know that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. I know that I am the righteousness of God through the blood of Jesus overcoming every sin and mistake of my past. I know that if God is for me. . .and He is. . .then who could be against me. I know that I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me”
