Bill Johnson (January-08-2020) Sermon: The Masterpiece of Jesus. Great teaching from Bill on how to flourish in God’s Kingdom in the earth. He shares this analogy: You get two calls from friends who dreamed about you; he compares the dreams to paintings. He encourages us to hold each painting up against the Masterpiece of Jesus. Quotes: “We need to learn the ways, boundaries, nature, and principles of His Kingdom. If you are a diamond cutter in NYC you carry diamonds in your briefcase on a regular basis. You’d have a permit from the police to legally carry a gun. But in Mexico that permit carries no authority. The permit you have in New York doesn’t work in Mexico. Whenever you go to a different Kingdom you need to live by the rules of that Kingdom. What happens is, we want the benefit of the Kingdom of God, without living by the rules of that Kingdom. But there are laws to that Kingdom and they work differently. His Kingdom says: To truly live - you die. You receive - by giving. You’re exalted - by going low. Faith the size of a mustard seed can move the biggest obstacle on the planet!”
