    How To Live When The Storm of Bereavement Hits Your Life
    Series: Bereavement
    *Lifepoint Praise Band - I Can Only Imagine - By MercyMe*
     
    Genesis 35: 16-19
     
    “a time to be born, and a time to die…..” ~ Ecclesiastes 3: 2
     
    “They journeyed from Bethel. When they were still some distance from Ephrath Rachel went into labor, and she had hard labor. And when her labor was at its hardest, the midwife said to her, ‘ Do not be fear, for you have another son. And as her soul was departing……So Rachel died, and she was buried……..”~Genesis 35: 16-19 ESV
     
    “Even when the way goes through Death Valley, I’m not afraid when you walk at my side. Your trusty shepherd’s crook makes me feel secure.” ~ Psalm 23: 4 The Message
     
    “I will never fail you nor forsake you.” ~ Hebrews 13:5 RSV
     
    Why Does God Allow Death To Take Us?
     
    “If we are in a battle with this enemy called Death, I believe we should learn about it, in order to know how to confront the dying experience. We need to know how to face that enemy on our own behalf, and how to deal with the inevitable deaths of loved ones and our friends.’ ~ 1 Corinthians 15:26 NASB
     
    Death is certain Vs 18 “as her soul was departing”
     
    It is important to accept death, grieve, (takes different periods of time for each person) then go forward vs 18-21“as her soul was departing….she was buried….Jacob placed a marker on her grave…then he journeyed on”
     
    God Will Provide During Bereavement
     
    Back to Psalm 23 David “Even though I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff They comfort me.”

    Series: (All)
    Matthew 22:34-38 "Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." This is the first and greatest commandment." Deuteronomy 6:5 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. " James 1:21-22 “Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” Joshua 1:8 “Do not let this book of the law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and you minds in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” John 3;16 “For God so Loved the world that He gave His one and ONLY Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perrish

    The Most Challenging Precept Jesus Taught
    Series: (All)
    Matthew 5: 1-7
     
    I. Jesus Commands Us To Show Mercy
     
    18O TIMES Hebrew word for mercy is translated in scripture
     
    96 times translated loving mercy
     
    38 times translated kindness
     
    30 times translated second chance
     
    30 times translated forgiveness
     
    HAPPY – TO BE CONGRATULATED ARE THOSE WHO SHOW MERCY FOR THEY WILL RECEIVE MERCY IN RETURN FOR SHOWING.
     
    ‘MASTER, WE CAUGHT HER IN THE VERY ACT OF ADULTERY. MOSES SAID WE SHOULD STONE HER UNTIL SHE IS DEAD. WHAT DO YOU SAY, LORD?”
     
    Here is the law:
     
    No forgiveness
     
    Only judgment and harsh judgement
     
    She is a sinner
     
    Kill her
     
    WE HAVE IN CHURCH TODAY MANY LEGALISTS
     
    PEOPLE WHO SPEND THEIR TIME JUDGING OTHERS
     
    CONDEMNING OTHERS
     
    THIS IS NOT GODS WAY OF DEALING WITH SINNERS
     
    THIS IS MAN’S WAY = Pharisees came and said, “She is a sinner, what do we do about her sin?”
     
    God’s way of dealing with sinners. “Whoever is without sin, you may throw the first stone”
     
    And they all drop their stones and quietly slipped away.
     
    "Where are your accusers? Where are those who condemn you? Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more"
     
    II. Practice Showing Mercy
     
    Jesus said, “we will never know mercy from God until we give mercy to others”
     
    The Lords Prayer
     
    “Father, forgive us our trespasses,
     
    Forgive us our sins, the way we forgive others”

    Matthew 5: 1-6
     
    I. What Is The Righteousness of God That He Wants Us To Desire?
     
    Philippians 3:9 “I want to be found in Him(Jesus), not having a righteousness of my own, but that which is through faith in Jesus Christ…..”
     
    Righteousness means to be in right standing before God
     
    Self-righteousness means our attempts to be good sometimes
     
    “All of us have become like one who is unclean and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags.” ~ Isaiah 64:6
     
    “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” ~ 11 Corinthians 5:21
     
    “Little children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteousness, just as Jesus is righteous…no one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning because he is born of God.” ~ 1 John 3: 7-9
     
    II. We Must Invite Jesus To Change Us
     
    “A intelligent person keeps wisdom in view, but a fools eyes wander to the ends of the earth.” ~ Proverbs 17:24
     
    III. We Must Invite People Into Our Lives Who Help Not Hinder
     
    “Like a bad tooth or a lame foot is reliance on the unfaithful in times of trouble.” ~ Proverbs 25: 19
     
    “As iron sharpens iron, so one persons improves another” ~ Proverbs 27:17
