Joyce Meyer Sermon Doing Life with God: You know God never invited us just to have a religion, he wants us to have a relationship with him, Jesus didn’t die so I could just be religious and go to church once a week, read a little bit of my bible every day, and then not think about him the rest of the time.
He wants to do life with us, and he wants to be involved in everything we do. This was so life-changing for me, the more you look into the word of God, the more we realised that God wants to be involved in everything that we do, he wants to be part of it.
We should do everything that we do with him and for him, in acts 17:28. The bible says, in him we live and move and have our being, as some of your own poets have said, ‘we are his offspring. now, think about that scripture, “in him we live and move and have our being.
What was the writer saying? Basically he was saying, we need to do life with God, merely going to church and asking God to help us when we have a disaster, is not his best plan for us, he wants us to talk to him, on and off, all day long, about anything, whatever we’re doing, praying for other people, just stay in contact with him on a regular basis.
God is never more than one thought away, it’s not like you have to be in some certain posture, inside of a church building, to talk to God, you can talk to him in the grocery store, in the car, in your home, out of your home, in the backyard, God is everywhere and he is with you all the time.
Joyce Meyer wants us to think about that, think about how close God is to you, when Jesus left, the father sent the holy spirit and he said, “he has been with you and he will now be in you. if you are a Christian, God lives in you, he lives in you and so, you should be doing everything that you do, with the idea in mind that you’re doing it with him.
Part of the reason why we are so unhappy was because we were leaving him out of almost everything that we were doing, it takes a while to form this habit that we need to have we God.
You can talk to God about everything, you can ask him to help you with everything that you do, because he’s concerned about you all the time, he wants to take care of you, wants to be invited into everything that you do. Reve9lation 3:16 says, so, because you are lukewarm neither hot or cold, I am about to spit you out of my mouth. God is saying, “all or nothing’.
He would rather you go all the way with me, or just do nothing at all, rather than just be lukewarm. you know, if you’re really thirsty, nobody wants a lukewarm glass of water. if we are going to have a nice drink, we are going to want to either have a nice cold one, or a nice hot one. if you’re a lukewarm Christian, you are going to have to stir yourself up, and get on fire for God. Live your life with and for him.
