Reset 2 – The Little Things
Pastor Troy Brewer, OpenDoor Church, Burleson, TX
There are two things a real encounter with God will do.
It will both humble you and empower you at the same time.
We are going to reset into humility today.
The famous French writer Voltaire often spent his ink expressing his contempt and hatred for
God, God’s people and God’s Word. When he so arrogantly wrote that his words and
philosophies would be more relevant than the word of God, God knew how to handle that.
About 200 years ago this genius wrote this prediction from his library in Paris:
“I will go through the forest of scriptures and girdle all the tress so that in 100 years Christianity
will be but a vanishing memory.”
A few years after his death, that same library was purchased by the British and Foreign Bible
Society. Ironically, his library was filled from the floor to the ceiling with thousands of copies of
the Bible he hated.
You’re never going to be more “anything” than God.
When the makers of the titanic declared their ship was more durable than God, he turned their
glory into shame and made the unsinkable ship unsaveable.
When John Lennon declared the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, within six
months of that statement the Broadway smash hit “Jesus Christ Superstar” was on the cover of
Time Magazine.
God’s not going to let you be more than him. In fact, it’s inevitable that God is going to be
declared to be more than everybody by everybody
Philippians 2:9-11
God also hath highly exalted the name of Jesus and given him a name above all names 10 That
at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and
things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the
glory of God the Father.
See, it’s inevitable that everybody is going to openly admit God is bigger than them, but its
better to get in on that now!
Colossians 1:18 defines what it means to be a true part of the body of Christ.
Colossians 1:18
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead;
that in all things he might have the preeminence
What do you have to do to be a part of Kingdom of Jesus forever and ever?
You need to be married to Him. You’ve got to be His bride.
What do you have to do to be His bride? You need to be one with His body.
What do you have to do to be one with His body? You have to make Christ the head.
