This weekend; I Can’t See God Because I Just Don’t Like His Kids That Much.”

Here is the outline for the teaching.

I CAN’T SEE GOD ……..BECAUSE I’M IN THE WAY
Pastor Steve Lummer
part 3
If people can’t see what God is doing,  they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals,  they are most blessed.  Proverbs 29:18 ( message)
If we can see God, we can become more like Him.
I can’t see God because I don’t like His kids very much.

How you see GOD is going to determine how you see YOURSELF….How you see yourself can determine how you see OTHERS.
“My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.  34″A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  John 13:31-35 (niv)
What does ” Love each other” look like?
1. Sincerity and Respect.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Romans 12:9 (niv)
2. Intimacy and Communion .
My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  John 17:20,21 (niv)
3. Action and Compassion .

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15: 12-13
THE WILL or HIS WILL?
Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ,    Romans 8:17
If I want to see God I need to ask him to help me to love all people with his love not just try attempt to love them on my own ability.
