    -In order to hold onto something it requires a closed hand.

    - Whatever you plant, you will get back.

    - Whatever it is that we need, we need to surrender that to God.

    - The key to receiving a blessing is letting go.

    - God makes sure we sit on green grass.

    - If we would simply let go of what we have, there will be no question that God is with us.

    John 6:5-6,9 Jeremiah 29:11; Matthew 14:16-17; James 2:14-17; Luke 9:13; Mark 6:37-38

    - God tests us knowing that He will do something for us. He already knows what He is going to do.

    - Sometimes we mistake certainty for faith.

    - Faith is active even when we don't know.

    - The answer will not be found where we are, that's why Jesus says go.

    - The go and see for us is in our heart.

    - The disciples had to find the little boy with the fish. They had to go and see.

    I Need A Blessing, Part 2 (The Contrast)
    Series: Bible Study

    Luke 9:10-12; Proverbs 4:23; Romans 8:29; 1 John 2:6

    - Jesus looked beyond His own needs and met the needs of the people.  The disciples did the opposite.

    - The disciples did not think of helping the people and did not even have the thought of asking Jesus.

    - What action did we take in response to the need? Who did we do it for?

    - We're not talking about the head, we're talking about the heart.

    - We're talking about actions, and not intentions.

    - Don't stop at the intention.

    - We can help those in need, our loved ones and strangers.

    - Undivided attention.   Full attention on the task at hand.

    - Multi-tasking is divided attention.

    - If we are going to get to a place of compassion, we need to have undivided attention.

    - The disciples walked with Jesus, yet still weren't walking like Him. We can do the same thing if our attention is divided.

    - If we say we abide in Christ, then we need to walk like Him.

    Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:31-32, Luke 9:10-11

    - Sometimes we get in the way and block the blessings in our life.

    - Unforgiveness is a great blocking blesser.

    - Doubt and unbelief is another blocking blesser.

    - Jesus wanted to be alone. He was tired, he was sad, he was hungry and a huge crowd followed him.

    - Sympathy keeps on going, compassion stops and helps.

    - We are blessed when we imitate God.

    - God looks at us with a heart of compassion and a heart of mercy.

    - We think in terms of what works for us.

    - Problems don't come at your convenience.  They show up announced, uninvited.

    - We now have the ability to ward people off.

    - As long as we live off of convenience, we are going to miss operating with God's compassion.

    - We can't do "me". We have to do "Jesus."

    Peace
    Series: Bible Study

    John 14:27; Philippians 4:6-7; Proverbs 4:23; Colossians 3:15; Isaiah 9:6

    - The peace of God that Jesus gives us is the quietness of spirit despite the circumstances.

    - Peace is not about the absence of conflict.

    - We don't have to pray for things to go away, the peace of Jesus takes it away.

    - The world gives us things that it doesn't own. Jesus gives us the real thing. He doesn't give as the world gives.

    - We have to receive the peace that Jesus gives us in order to have peace.

    - There's a God of peace and the peace of God. The peace of God guards our hearts and mind.

    - In the quietness of your spirit you are able to hear the voice of God.

    - God gives you a peace that doesn't make any sense.

    - We cannot guard our own hearts.

    - We have to let peace rule our hearts and not focus on the problem.

    1 Thessalonians 5:15, Matthew 7:12, 5:43-45; Romans 12:14,17-21; Proverbs 20:22; 1 Peter 3:9-12

    - There are too many Christians that live by the code, "I will treat you the way you treat me." And that code finds no support in The Bible.

    - We don't treat people the way we want them to treat us, we treat them the way we want to be treated.

    - People who are cruel in their attitude towards you, we are supposed to bless.

    - We are to do things in a way that everyone can see that we are honorable.

    - It is God's job to repay the wrong that has been done to us.

    The eyes of the Lord watches over them who do right by people.

    - If God turns His face against us there is nothing left for us to do,

    - The way are treat others is not dependent upon how they treat us.
